Episode 152: Getting Through the Holidays Without Gaining Weight

If you’ve been following these podcasts and are doing the work on your eating and thinking and self-care, now may be the time for stress.

Or so you think.

Holidays Podcast 152

Here in the U.S. and in many places around the world, it’s holiday season.

That means more food, more temptations to ditch your eating plan, more family drama and more worry about eating.

Am I describing you right now?

In the Freedom Group, lots of our members start worrying about the holidays in October.

For some it’s all about the food itself.

For others, it’s about being alone, or with family members you’re not as connected to as you want to be.

Maybe you’ve made progress in your weight loss journey and you fear losing the progress you’ve made.

Or maybe you’re just beginning and struggling, and you’re afraid that your old habit of non-stop holiday food will keep you stuck in square one.

And self-care? For lots of us, it goes right out the window at this time of year.

Let’s look at all these holiday concerns together. I know for sure that no matter what the calendar says, you can get through the holidays without weight gain and without stress.

Yes, you can even be with family and still honor yourself. And I will show you how.

Let’s do this together and make these holidays the new standard for you to take care of yourself and your eating no matter what day it is.

Episode 151: Why Hunger Can Feel Scary

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

Episode 151: Why Hunger Can Feel Scary

You’re hungry. You start to feel panicky. Will you be able to eat soon? What type of food will be available? What if there isn’t enough?

Scary Podcast 151

Next thing you know, you’re eating way more than your body needs. But you can’t help it. It’s scary to be hungry.

Or maybe this is what you experience… you’re hungry and you immediately respond by shutting that down. You’re used to dieting and that means you ignore that hunger signal. You can’t eat now – you’re not supposed to. And that’s scary too.

There are so many reasons hunger signals cause you to feel scared, out of control, or panicky.

Today, let’s take a closer look at the thoughts and feelings that come up when you feel physical hunger.

And we’ll talk about why it’s so hard to even wait for hunger in the first place!

We’ll talk about the difference between food restriction and food deprivation. And why you don’t need to worry about either once you learn how to eat like a natural eater.

I’ll explain why hunger is not an emergency – even if your lower brain is telling you otherwise.

We’ll finish up with strategies for handling hunger signals so that you don’t panic, and you don’t respond in ways that derail you from your goals.

You can learn to experience hunger without feeling like it’s an emergency that causes you fear and panic. I’ll show you why it’s so important to learn this and how to do it.

I’ll teach you how to respond from your higher brain, making choices that will serve your body, your goals, and your enjoyment. You’ll be able to replace those scary feelings and panic with peace. Listen in to learn how.

Episode 150: Why You Must Make Time for Weight Loss

Tuesday, November 12th, 2019

Episode 150: Why You Must Make Time for Weight Loss

It’s another Monday and you’re motivated to start a new weight loss plan. This time, you say to yourself, I’m ready.

Time Podcast 150

For a few days or even a couple of weeks, you’re staying on your plan. You don’t have to think too much about it.

And then, the inevitable. Something or someone throws a wrench into your plans. You have to work late or there is a family emergency, or you’re worn out from too many commitments, or maybe it’s that you’re going on that long-awaited vacation.

But no matter what “it” is, the next thing you know, you tell yourself you’ll just have to plan on getting back on track after this is over with.

Sound familiar? It’s a cycle that you’ve been through before. That much I know.

But this cycle doesn’t get you where you want to go. It doesn’t help you reach your weight loss goal.

Something is missing. But what is it?

That something is time. Making time for your weight loss plan. Making time for yourself. And making your weight loss a priority. Every day. No matter what comes up.

Listen in today as I explain why making time for weight loss is so important to reaching your goal.

Episode 148: Do You Love Food Too Much?

Tuesday, October 29th, 2019

Episode 148: Do You Love Food Too Much?

Have you ever said this? “I just can’t lose weight because I’m a real food lover.”

Love Food Podcast 148

Well, this is just not true. We all love food, really. Me too!

But when we love something, there is no drive to overdo it. Just the right amount is perfect. And too much is too much.

When you love something, you don’t use it for things it’s not intended for. You don’t eat delicious food because you are sad. You don’t eat 12 cookies because you are excited.

You eat food because you love it, and you eat it slowly enough to taste it. Slowly enough to really savor it. And you get maximum pleasure out of it.

When you use food inappropriately, to make yourself feel good, it’s not because you love it so much.

It’s because you aren’t taking responsibility for yourself. For your emotions. And this is VERY different from eating because you love food.

I want you to enjoy the foods you love. AND learn to manage your emotional life. AND, see that they are two different things.

Here is where we do that, together.

Episode 145: Should I Have Just a Little? Or None at All?

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

Episode 145: Should I Have Just a Little? Or None at All?

How often do you struggle with this?

Little Podcast 145

You are offered a piece of chocolate cake. Your mind immediately starts weighing the pros and the cons.

Should you have a little bit of it? Or should you say no?

What will be easier? What will create more of a struggle?

While you know yourself, I wonder if you know what makes this decision easier or harder for you.

The first thing that I want you to look at is your thoughts, of course! If you think ‘one bite and I’m out of control’, that is a hint that you might find it easier to have none than just a little of that chocolate cake.

Your thinking creates your emotions. And if your emotions are deprived and helpless, when thinking about not having a treat, we can look at this and decide what you really want to do.

You’ll learn why having some isn’t better or worse than having none of that tempting food at all. It all depends on what is easier for you. And I’ll show you how to make the whole decision easier.

Are you ready? Will you have a little bit? Or will it be easier to just skip the cake?

Let’s find out!

Episode 144: How to Deal with Other People’s Moods Without Eating

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

Episode 144: How to Deal with Other People’s Moods Without Eating

I used to be totally ruled by the moods of my husband, my two daughters and my friends.

Moods Podcast 144

If they were in a good mood, I’d be good. I’d feel relieved and peaceful. But if they weren’t, everything felt up for grabs.

If they were sad, I’d feel sad.

If they were worried, I’d jump right in there on the worry bus with them.

And if they were angry about something, guess who’d be angry too? Me, of course!

Now I have so much more understanding about moods than I used to. I know what creates my own moods. And, I really understand what creates the moods of others around us.

And that’s what I want to share with you today.

Because what you ultimately want to do is to experience your own moods, the good and the bad AND be with someone else and their moods, without running to eat to feel better. This is a step toward ending your emotional eating.

No matter what mood the people around you are in, you have a choice of how you feel. This is our work today.

Join me in this coaching session where we shine the light on moods, especially the moods of those around us.

Episode 133: Why Planning Ahead Really Works

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

Episode 133: Why Planning Ahead Really Works

Let’s take an honest look at how you’re deciding what to eat and when to eat.

Planning Podcast 133

If you’re letting triggers other than physical hunger determine what and when you eat, you’re not alone.

There are many triggers to eat that have nothing to do with physical hunger in your body. But continuing to be triggered to eat without hunger will not get you to your goal.

Triggers to eat are all around us, all the time. And they’re not going anywhere. What’s important is to learn how to respond to them in a way that actually helps you.

You already know I believe in planning ahead of time, both for what and when you eat. So, in today’s coaching session, let’s look at why planning works and why it’s important to your weight loss success.

I’ll explain why you’re susceptible to triggers (hint: it’s your lower brain) and what you can do about it. I’ll show you how you can retrain your brain. How you can create new programming (using your higher brain) that will build new habits in response to old triggers.

You may resist planning because of old associations with dieting rules and restrictions. We’ll talk about that in this coaching session, too.

Planning works because when you plan ahead – deciding ahead of time what and when you will eat – you are using your brain’s executive functions. And that provides you with guidance that always serves your highest good. Planning ahead is a foundational skill of eating like a natural eater.

Let’s get started so I can show you why planning really works and how you can begin using this tool today.

Episode 129: How Accountability and Structure Help You Lose Your Eating Issues

Tuesday, June 18th, 2019

Episode 129: How Accountability and Structure Help You Lose Your Eating Issues

What do you think of when I say the word accountability?

Accountability Podcast 129

Do you think of your old strict 5th grade teacher, asking you for your book report? I thought so.

And what do you think about when I talk about structure?

Do you think of a rigid schedule that has no flexibility and feels a little like prison? Yup. I thought that you might think that.

So, here’s the reality. When you want to achieve something, anything, you need to have a path. Some guidelines. Some things in place that help you know where you are going, how to get there, and signs that you’ve arrived.

Well, that’s exactly what accountability and structure give you. They give you a framework for doing what you most want to do. These are things you can create for yourself, by you, for you. So, there is nothing to rebel against.

Let’s take a look at how accountability and structure can very positively affect how you eat and how you deal with food, so that you can get what you want: ending that emotional eating, losing that extra weight, and living your best life.

Here we go! Join me.

Episode 126: The Talk in Your Mind that Drives You Crazy

Tuesday, May 28th, 2019

Episode 126: The Talk in Your Mind that Drives You Crazy

Have you ever thought that you are driving yourself crazy? If you step back and listen to all the things you think about your eating and your weight, it’s not surprising that you might think that.

Talk Podcast 126

Imagine the jumble of thoughts you’re thinking about your eating. Why am I eating this? What should I be eating? Why can’t I stick to my plan? What’s wrong with me?

And the list goes on and on and on. It’s enough to drive you crazy. But wait! You are the one thinking those thoughts. You are the one creating that swirl of confusion.

Now, I’m not blaming you. And you shouldn’t blame yourself either. But I think it helps to know that if your thoughts are creating a mess of confusion, then your thoughts are the way out of that confusion.

We all talk to ourselves. You are no exception. I want your self-talk to be honest, but compassionate. And productive.

I want you to be able to think your way out of the mess you’re in. This is doable. And this is what you will learn.

Please join me in this coaching session where we take apart all those crazy-making thoughts in your head, slow them down, and create more meaningful ways of thinking.

And yes, create thoughts that will feel better to you.

The ultimate question that you may never ask yourself. Too often we eat because of a feeling, a memory or a need that has nothing to do with our hunger.

Worth It Podcast 125

This is not good, right? This is what gives you extra weight to carry around. If your body isn’t hungry, no matter what you think the food may do for you, it will always be extra food that you don’t need.

And extra food is always stored as fat. Period.

So, if you want to lose that extra weight, you need to start questioning yourself before you eat without hunger.

And a good way to do that is to ask: “Will eating this be worth it?”

That will require you to look ahead into the future and think about how you will feel after you eat this thing.

What do you hope eating now will do for you? What are you hoping to accomplish by eating right now?

I want you to learn to look ahead and make your decision about whether to eat based on the results you’ll get. The consequences you’re creating. Because that is the reality.

And rather than just feel bad after you eat something you shouldn’t have, let’s get in the habit of deciding whether this food, these bites, are worth it to you.

That is the question I want you to ask yourself if you want to eat when you aren’t hungry: “Will eating this be worth it?”
