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.

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 132: How to Stick to Your Weight Loss Plan for the Long Haul

Are you part of the way to your goal and wondering how to stick with it? This episode will help you with that.

Sometimes, when you have a big goal that requires a lot of time and commitment, it’s easy to lose your way.

You might find yourself doubtful that you can keep up with what got you to this point. You might find that you’re not quite as motivated as you need to be. As you were in the beginning. Or you might find yourself slipping back into old patterns. Patterns that aren’t helpful in getting you closer to what you want.

I want to show you, in this coaching session, how to hold onto the success you’ve created so far, and how to move forward without losing ground or motivation.

This requires looking at your beliefs about yourself. About what you think you are capable of. And about staying for the long haul.

This means knowing how to motivate yourself when that sticky note on your computer screen is no longer noticeable to you.

And this is what you need to do. You need to keep your eye on where you are going. And, at the same time, on what your next step will be.

You’ll learn how to know what to focus on, and when to switch focus. From the future, to the present, and back again and again and again.

You’re creating a new path for yourself. A smooth path. It’s rocky today. But if you stick with it, it will get easier.

Episode 130: Secret Eating – Who Are You Really Hiding From?

Tell me if you can relate to this:

  • You go out with friends for a nice restaurant meal and you order a salad. But when you leave, you stop and go through a drive-through, and over-indulge as soon as you get home.
  • You are cleaning up after a nice dinner with friends, and as soon as you bring those plates into the kitchen, you’re throwing away their scraps but you’re also eating half of them.
  • Or, you have a tough day at work. You bravely hold it together, waiting until you can be alone, in your bed, with the TV, and a large bag of chips and a gallon of ice cream.

Do you eat in secret? You know it has nothing to do with the food, right?

Why is it so hard to just be yourself? To eat what really want, without worrying about what others think.

To take care of your stress and your pain with hugs and conversation and maybe some tears, instead of with food.

This is possible. So, let’s talk today about secret eating, why you eat in secret, what it could mean, and how to get rid of that habit.

Because you know how bad it feels when you’re done with your secret eating. Let’s deal with this now, my friend.

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

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

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 128: Why It’s So Hard to Lose Weight if You Can’t See the Truth About Yourself

Several years ago, I struggled. With just about everything.

Some days I felt ‘fat’ and other days I was content with my body. Some days I struggled with my eating and other days I just ate naturally. Sometimes I felt attractive, and other days I hated the way I looked. And my moods! I never knew how I’d wake up, feeling up one day and down the next. And I had no idea that I could ever feel a sense of control or understanding of these moods.

My self-image fluctuated wildly. And now I know that this happened because my thoughts about myself were fluctuating wildly too.

I had no compass to tell me the truth. How I really looked and felt and what was real and what was just my story. This takes perspective and being objective about yourself.

Sometimes you have a friend who serves as your mirror. Being with her lets you see yourself as the rest of the world sees you. And then you can be objective about what’s really you.

But sometimes you need the objectivity of a professional, who can see you and help you see yourself. In truth.

Today we’re talking about how to gain some objectivity in how you view life and yourself.

Join me for this short coaching session and ask yourself some important questions about your truth.

Episode 127a: The 3 Essential Steps to Weight Loss Success

You are invited!

I’ve created an online workshop just for you! And it’s coming up soon.

This workshop is called The 3 Essential Steps to Weight Loss Success. And in it, I will show you the inside of my Eat Think Love program from the Freedom Group, which uses a mix of psychology, coaching and brain science to help you solve your emotional eating problem.

I want you help you not only lose your extra weight, but stop eating when you feel an uncomfortable feeling, and lose the whole problem.

Here’s what we will cover in this workshop:

  • You’ll understand, after attending or listening to a replay of this workshop, exactly what makes you want to eat when you’re not hungry, and how to change that habit.
  • You’ll learn how to stop eating when your body’s had enough, but your mind wants to keep eating.
  • You’ll see how and why you created a connection between feeling an emotion you don’t like, like stress or anger or worry, and eating when your body isn’t hungry.
  • And you’ll learn to take amazing care of yourself, so food is still pleasurable, but it’s one of so many things you give yourself that makes you feel good, not the only thing.

Sign up and reserve your seat and I will send you all the details about the workshop.

This is your chance to hear from me how the Eat, Think, Love program from the Freedom Group can be a total game-changer for you.

See you there!
