December is typically one of the biggest months of self-sabotage...
well, not this year!

THIS DECEMBER is about co-creating miracles which is why I’ve decided to feature inspiring stories of real-life women just like you and THEIR PERSONAL MIRACLES.

This week you’re gonna meet Claire (you’re gonna love her!)

As you listen to Claire →  let her VERY real story inspire POSSIBILITY for you.

During her time in The Last 10 program, Claire was able to lose 19 pounds that had previously felt ABSOLUTELY impossible.

And truly, that just the cherry on top, the most priceless thing for her AFTER BATTLING HER BODY AND HATING IT FOR 33 YEARS, is that she actually is now able to feel confidence, and TOTAL TRUST in herself, and SO MUCH LOVE for herself and her body.

It really IS POSSIBLE to transform this area of your life!
FROM STUCK → TO RESULTS.

FROM STRUGGLE → TO PEACE.

FROM STRUGGLE → TO CONFIDENCE.

FROM STRUGGLE,  TO LOVE.

And you don’t have to take MY word for it. Listen to Claire as she shares HER story. Like so many other of my clients, you can hear it in her voice. It WILL inspire you to SEE POSSIBILITY IN YOUR OWN UNIQUE STORY.

She went from being in a constant war with her body and frustrated about results she wanted that felt impossible → to feeling SO MUCH LOVE for her body and the weight loss results FEELING Easy!

→ Creating miracles is about doing the SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE- and that's precisely what Claire was able to do!

No matter HOW LONG this area of your life has felt like the biggest struggle, it's possible to LOVE this area of your life.

Let's make sure to show your brain TONS of evidence that: YES, THIS IS POSSIBLE.

Listen to yet another episode featuring LAST 10 Program client ‘miracles’ for yet another dose of POSSIBILITY INSPIRATION.

Let yourself FEEL UNSTOPPABLE also.

This is Claire’s Story.

What will YOUR story be?

December is typically one of the biggest months of self-sabotage... not this year! :no_entry_sign: THIS DECEMBER is about co-creating miracles which is why I'm featuring the inspiring stories of clients (real-life women just like you!) and THEIR PERSONAL MIRACLES. :sparkles:

As you listen, let their VERY real stories inspire POSSIBILITY for you.

In this episode I interview my client Trish...

During her time in the program, Trish was able to lose 26 pounds in 24 weeks that had previously felt impossible, and beyond that:

SHE WAS ABLE TO COMPLETELY EMPOWER HER RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD AND REVOLUTIONIZED THE WAY SHE CAN FEEL IN HER BODY.

She went from feeling: 'f*cked up' (aka dysfunctional) in this area of her life --> to feeling like it's ALL BEEN MASTERED. Simple. Easy.

Creating miracles is about doing the SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE. And that's precisely what Trish was able to do-

'What's even MORE impressive is that I have a relationship with food now that I spent 17 years literally thinking would be impossible for me. I'VE DONE THE IMPOSSIBLE!' -Trish

No matter HOW LONG this area of your life has felt like the biggest struggle, it's possible to LOVE this area of your life.

Let's make sure to show your brain TONS of evidence that: YES, THIS IS POSSIBLE.

This is Trish's Story.

What will YOUR story be?

You're gonna get ALL the deets about mine.

You simply MUST listen.

WARNING: NO 'holiday tips and tricks' here.

But that’s actually the good news!

HERE’S WHY: When you buy those magazines last minute at the grocery store as you’re checking out (Oh, I KNOW. Been there. DONE THAT), the ones that say on the cover ‘Tips to lose weight this Holiday Season’... the problem is that these kinds of articles in magazines and ‘special segments’ on the news, typically focus on ONE thing:

→ THE ACTIONS.

They focus on telling you ‘what’ to do ( what NOT to do, what to eat, what NOT to eat, when to do it, how often, how much, how little, etc).

The thing about HUMANS is that the decisions we make are not determined by having information about ‘what to do’ → our decisions are driven by our emotions. The things we want to feel or NOT feel.

Let’s go another layer deep into our human behavior:

Our emotions are determined by how we’re thinking about things (ie. HOW YOU’RE THINKING about food, about your weight loss, about your body, about the Holiday).

REAL- LIFE HOLIDAY EXAMPLE-

...Let’s say you’re stressed about Thanksgiving, and you’re already DREADING all the social interactions. PLUS you’re also feeling anxious because you know there’s gonna be TONS of food around and you don’t wanna F-up your weight loss progress. (not to mention, your family are HARDCORE food pushers)...

...Let’s say you ALSO think about food as a way to ‘take-the-edge-off’...

→ If there’s ALL THIS going on for you, It doesn’t matter if you ‘KNOW’ the ‘tip’ about bringing your own healthy holiday dish to the family potluck that you read in Cosmo earlier that week - because if you’re feeling THIS emotionally charged and food is your go-to (plus maybe also some wine ;) ...

Then you’re still gonna end up EMOTIONALLY eating stuff that doesn’t support your weight loss goals (Yes, even though you ‘know’ all the ‘tips’ and you ‘know’ exactly WHAT to eat).THIS IS EXACTLY why in my LAST 10 program and on my podcast I don’t do ‘tips-n-tricks’.

Instead, we go to the CORE of it, which is equipping you with brain and emotional self care tools. (I’m ALL about EMPOWERING YOU sister!).Instead, we bring awareness to decondition limiting beliefs and ways of thinking so that you can ACTUALLY make the decisions that will create the results you’re wanting, while ALSO feeling the way you actually want to FEEL in your life when it comes to your weight loss, body image, and food.

This week on the podcast you’re gonna get a powerful and carefully curated collection of some of MY BEST HOLIDAY CONTENT from the past 5 years of podcasting!

Narrated my podcast producer, Michelle, who’s lost over 70 pounds applying what I teach on the podcast. She’s now in her goal weight range, and she’s determined to continue losing weight through the Holidays. (I freakin LOVE Michelle! Get ready to smile, laugh, and maybe even cry as you listen…)

So no, we don’t do tips ‘n tricks around here. NOPE.

If that sh*t ‘worked’... NO ONE would gain weight through the holidays, cuz those tips-and-tricks are literally EVERYWHERE.

WE DO WAY BETTER then ‘tricks’.→ OUR HUMAN BRAIN IS OUR MAIN OPERATING SYSTEM.
ALL DECISIONS come from our brain.
Every. Single. One.

Which means this:
The answer for creating change in your choices and results through the Holidays (and ANY other time of the year) is by UNDERSTANDING YOUR THINKING.

I’m here for you this Holiday Season. (AND ALL YEAR ROUND!)

As we officially enter these Holidays-
I’m SO thankful to have you in my world.

It’s an honor AND A JOY to be a part of your one-of-a-kind Journey, and support you ALL the way to your biggest, BOLDEST, most audacious, personal goals.

LISTEN TO THIS GREATEST HITS EPISODE - HOLIDAY EDITION!

Nov 29, 2021

You’ve heard sooo many of my clients share their stories on the podcast, you’ve read about their transformations and how they rave about their experience.

You’ve literally heard it in their voices as they share...
THEY FEEL EMPOWERED, LIBERATED FROM THE STRUGGLE, AND LOVING THEIR RESULTS.

If you pay close attention, you’ll see that a consistent common denominator is this:
THEY’VE LEARNED THE SKILL OF SELF-COMPASSION.

→ They’ve learned how to be kind to themselves, and actually supportive OF themselves >>>  which is the TOTAL OPPOSITE of what most of us learn as women: to be constantly critical and ‘never good enough’.

I’ve talked about emotional eating MANY times on the podcast, but today we’re zero-ing in on a really important one, that deserves its very own episode: SELF PITY.

I can’t even tell you HOW MANY TIMES I emotionally over-ate and sabotaged my goals DUE TO FEELING SELF PITY.

Self pity about my weight, self pity about my body, self pity about relationship stuff, work stuff (the list goes on!)… or even just self pity about my life in general. And whenever I felt this way, I didn’t know any other thing to do, but to eat about it as a temporary means for distraction.

THIS is the case for most women. It completely explains WHY it’s possible for someone to know exactly ‘what to do’ to lose the weight, but then emotionally eat to the point of even regaining all the weight they’ve lost. Because when it comes to emotions like this one, we just haven’t known any other way... UNTIL NOW ;)

I can remember SO CLEARLY moments of my life where I TRULY felt and believe that:
 -Food was the only ‘good thing’ in my life.
- Food (specifically, popcorn at the end of the day…) was the ONLY thing to ‘look forward to’.This is something that comes up A LOT as I’m coaching my clients inside THE LAST 10 Program.

One of the skills you’ve heard me talk about before (but I break down in this episode in a new way) is: EMOTIONAL COURAGE.

In this Episode I specifically examine Self-pity as part of our human emotional experience- HOW to navigate that. We take an even  closer, microscopic look at Self-Pity vs Self-Compassion, and moreover HOW TO ACTUALLY OFFER YOURSELF COMPASSION IN YOUR MOST CHALLENGING MOMENTS as a wayyyyy more effective strategy. (pro tip: Self-compassion is a powerful antidote for self-sabotage!)

For me, Compassion is like being able to offer LOVE from myself TO MYSELF in moments when I’m feeling MOST uncomfortably challenged. HAVING THIS SKILL CHANGED THE COURSE OF MY LIFE. (not to mention, I also stopped rage eating which means I now maintain an 80 pound weight loss with ease, and joy and love...)

I share a personal example and story from when I navigated being a brand new mom, and that infamous newborn stage. It was one of the HARDEST things I’ve ever done, it involved BOTH self-pity AND compassion.

The game-changer was honing in on the difference between the two, developing the ability to generate self-compassion FOR YOURSELF, while also allowing for some self-pity as needed.

So… if you find yourself feeling like ‘food is the only thing to look forward to’ at the end of your day, your week, or overall right now in your life-

Put in your earbuds. RELAX. ENJOY. And take in this powerful, game-changing message.

The majority of my clients come to me because they are just at a loss for how to stop emotionally eating and overeating in a way that sabotages their goals and desired results.

This weeks' episode is a must listen, because I breakdown 3 key points that will be important for you to know as you decondition emotional eating and overeating habits (I've never broken down in this way before!)

...Did you know you’re allowed to FEEL whatever the heck you want to feel about things?

...Did you know that you’re allowed to THINK whatever the heck you want to think about things?

You are. 

Permission granted. And I really do mean ALL the human emotions. 

ALL OF THEM. 

Not just the ‘pretty’ ones. 

You’re allowed to feel pissed, and annoyed and frustrated and disappointed. 

And it’s actually important that YOU give YOURSELF: Permission to Commiserate. 

Permission to feel lousy if that’s were you’re at. 

Having a human experience is NOT a problem. 

Brain self care tools (aka thought work) are NOT meant to be used as a weapon against yourself or just another reason to be critical of yourself.

Brain self care tools are NOT meant to be for the purpose of bypassing your human experience.

Brain self care tools (ie. thought work) are meant to be used AS TOOLS, FOR your human experience.

In this episode, I break down for you three key points that are important as you continue to revolutionize BOTH your results in this area of your life, as well as YOUR EXPERIENCE.

And yes,  THE FULL SPECTRUM of human emotions (yes, even the ‘lousy’ ones…) are ALLOWED to be (and meant to be!) a part of that.

Women ALL around the world internally struggle with emotional eating and sabotage.

Here’s how it goes down:
You were planning to 'eat healthy' or 'follow your diet' but then... you eat an Oreo.

Next thing you know, you've spent the rest of the night eating the full package of Oreos.After having eaten all the Oreos, you overeat and sabotage all weekend long. :thinking_face:You think to yourself:
'Ugh. I did it again. I'll start over and be really 'on plan' AFTER that...'

The reason I know exactly how this goes down, is because THIS was one of the cycles I was stuck in for decades. I've also coached HUNDREDS of women, from ALL walks of life on this exact overeating pattern.

Believe it or not, the cycle I've described here is fueled by: (drum roll please....) PERFECTIONISM.

I know this doesn't 'sound' like Perfectionism. (And in fact, you're likely thinking this doesn't even apply to you because YOU see yourself as being  FAR FROM PERFECT. )Here's the wild thing though:
Perfectionism is a way of thinking.

'Perfectionism' doesn't actually mean 'being perfect'. :exploding_head:

When it comes to weight loss and weight struggles, perfectionism rears its little head by leading you to believe that in order to be 'done' struggling with your weight: YOU NEED TO BE 'PERFECT' and you'll need to 'eat perfectFOREVER.

FOR-E-VER. (ugh. I'm exhausted just thinking about 'being perfect' forever.)

One of the MOST common questions I get is - Brenda ‘HOW DO I STOP OVEREATING AND SABOTAGING MY GOALS?!’

In order to ‘stop’ it’s important to first understand what’s driving the overeating and sabotage...

:arrow_right: THE CAUSE OF OVEREATING IN THIS WAY IS: PERFECTIONISTIC THINKING.

On todays’ episode I teach you a new concept and break perfectionism/perfectionistic thinking down in a brand new way.
 I also invite you into a new and upgraded possibility for your weight loss AND your life:

BEING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUR BODY.

Now, listen- I know this may sound way over-simplified but DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE the absolutely life-changing POWER OF being in partnership with your body.

THIS IS THE MOST PRACTICAL AND EFFECTIVE THING YOU CAN DO.
(It's how I have maintained an 80 pound weight loss with ease and JOY, and love for years now- after having struggled for decades...)It’s vital for you to know that your means of approaching your desired results (*PERFECTIONISM) IS JUST NOT WORKING.:no_entry_sign:

TODAY, I'm personally inviting you INTO A COMPLETELY NEW POSSIBILITY-

*IF you are willing to swap out Perfectionistic Thinking for instead: BEING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUR BODY:

Get ready to be done with the struggle.
Get ready to be done with the sabotage.
Get ready to be done with the ‘eff-it’ moments and overeating.

Here, at THE LAST 10, we're all about UPGRADES BABY.

Instead of being at war with yourself, and your body ---> DECIDE TO BE IN THE MOST AMAZING, CONNECTED, LOVING PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUR BODY.:two_hearts:

Game changer.
Results changer.
LIFE CHANGER.

You do NOT wanna miss this one.

This week’s podcast episode is a freaking gem.

You just have GOT to listen.

I talked with my client GILLIANNE (love you Gillianne!)

CHECK THIS OUT:
She’s a board-certified radiation oncologist.
She’s a certified life coach.
She’s a business owner & entrepreneur.
She’s a mom of two.

Clearly, she’s a freaking BOSS.

And yet… When it came to her weight and her relationship with food she felt COMPLETELY STUCK.

Even though she was SO close to giving up on losing the 20 pounds she had been struggling to lose for YEARS, she decided it was finally time for making this venture ENJOYABLE and actually having A-grade support - so she took a leap of faith in herself by signing up for my weight loss coaching program.

GILLIANNE LOST 23 POUNDS in THE LAST 10 Program (...and is still losing weight!)

Not only that, but she could barely believe how EASY it was.

She even said to me at one point: ‘Brenda, this is so easy I feel like I’m cheating’

She actually ENJOYED the process and had a GOOD TIME losing the weight. (...whaaat?!?! Yep. that’s possible my friend).

Check this out, I get emails ALL THE TIME saying things like:

‘Brenda I would LOVE to do your program. I've been struggling with my weight my entire life, but I’m just too busy with work, and I’m a mom and I have so many things going on. I just don’t think I can do this right now, maybe down the road when things calm down a bit’...

SPOILER ALERT:
Things aren’t gonna ‘calm down’-  probably, ever.
The ‘kids’ will be here for a while, in fact - you’re gonna be their ‘mom’ FOREVER.
Also, my guess is your retirement isn’t happening anytime soon...
AND there will ALWAYS be - ‘things going on’

If you’ve been struggling with your weight and with food for basically your entire life, SOMETHING IS GONNA HAVE TO CHANGE.

You’re gonna have to make ‘the call’ that even though YES, YOU ARE A VERY BUSY WOMAN with tons on your plate-

YOU MATTER.

YOUR HAPPINESS MATTERS.

YOUR PERSONAL GOALS MATTER.

BEING ABLE TO FEEL GOOD IN & ENJOY YOUR BODY IN THIS LIFETIME, MATTERS.

THE VISION YOU HAVE FOR YOUR LIFE, MATTERS.

I think we can all agree it’s pretty damn unlikely Gillianne was ‘sitting around’ twiddling her thumbs and for that reason was able to lose weight... (NOPE!)

Gillianne was able to lose 23 pounds that FELT IMPOSSIBLE (umm did I mentioned she even had some Thyroid issues going on…) and she did so WHILE LIVING HER LIFE IN FULL TECHNICOLOR.

In fact, one of Gillianne’s MOST favorite things about the program was this:

‘What I was not expecting from this program was FINALLY LEARNING HOW TO UNCONDITIONALLY LOVE MYSELF and be my own best friend. I HAVE LOTS TO SAY ABOUT THIS. I could go on, and on and on. BEST. PROGRAM. EVER.’

If you ask me, THAT right there is absolutely priceless.

And guess what? It required a decision to do SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

IT REQUIRED THE DECISION that no matter how many responsibilities and things were on her plate, SHE WAS A TOP PRIORITY.

Listen to this week's episode and get ready to feel absolutely UNSTOPPABLE and incredibly inspired.

Also, grab a pen and paper and get ready to take some notes from Gillianne because she shares SO MUCH about how she made this possible for herself EVEN AS a busy physician, mom, entrepreneur AND MORE...

If Gillianne could do it, YOU CAN TOO.**

The deadline to enroll in THE LAST 10 Program is this Thursday, October 28th @ 11:59pm.

Millions of women around the world internally struggle with emotional eating and sabotage (...sometimes, even daily!)

Here’s how it goes down:
You promise yourself you’re not gonna eat ‘x’ food (ie. the bread from the bread basket out at dinner)...

And then the bread arrives, and you have some.

You think to yourself:
‘Dammit, what’s wrong with me?! I said I wasn’t gonna have any. How am I  ever gonna lose this weight? UGHhh. Well, I already messed up, so maybe I’ll just say eff-it - and start on Monday’...

Typically, what ensues is a whole lot of eating. A whole lotta eating, even past the point of what actually feels good for you in your body. (aka: You eat until you feel stuffed. And awful. I know because I used to do the exact same thing).
THIS IS WHAT I LOVINGLY REFER TO AS THE ‘I ALREADY MESSED UP’ PHENOMENON.
(yes, trust me. It’s a thing. But also, you can totally de-condition it!)

One of the MOST common questions I get is - Brenda ‘HOW DO I STOP OVEREATING AND SABOTAGING MY GOALS?!’

In order to ‘stop’ it’s important to first understand what’s causing this...

THE CAUSE OF OVEREATING IN THIS WAY IS: ALL-OR-NOTHING THINKING.

On todays’ episode I break this down in a brand new way, and I also invite you into a new and upgraded possibility for your weight loss AND your life:

LOVE, AS THE NEW BASELINE FOR DECISION-MAKING.

Now, listen- before I get any eye rolls… ; )
And I know, I know this may initially sound way too over-simplified and cheesy, let me tell you: THIS IS THE MOST PRACTICAL AND EFFECTIVE THING YOU CAN DO.

It’s also essential for you to know that your current baseline for decision making is PERFECTIONISM and it’s JUST. NOT. WORKING.

I’M INVITING YOU TODAY INTO A COMPLETELY NEW POSSIBILITY.

*If you are willing to make this one upgrade (from perfectionism as your baseline, to LOVE as your new baseline) ...

Get ready to be done with the struggle.
Get ready to be done with the sabotage.
Get ready to be done with the ‘eff-it’ moments and overeating.

Get ready for SO MUCH MORE LOVE for yourself & your body AND those next-level results.

When it comes to losing your ‘last’ pounds (and even the first ones!) something that gets in the way for SO many women is that they struggle with taking center stage in their life.

Let me paint a picture…

You end your day  feeling completely, absolutely depleted.
You end your day feeling like 110% of you has been given to everything and everyone else, and you’ve got nothing left for you.Then, enter food... (hello, late night eating!)Food then becomes that ‘go to’.
It feels  like the one thing you ‘get to enjoy’.
It feels like the one time of the day where it’s ‘time for me’.

But if you asked most women, they wouldn’t tell you that THIS is what they wanted for their life...

They wouldn’t tell you that they wanted to feel completely depleted day-after-day, living their life in a way that the only ‘thing’ to enjoy, the only ‘time’ to enjoy would have become a moment with food, at the end of the day on the couch.

Today's podcast episode concept: TAKING CENTER STAGE, it is an invitation to reclaim and restate your position in your life- as being one where you’re not just getting the crumbs of yourself at the end of the day.

It's YOUR LIFE AFTER ALL... right?

Our lives are NOT dress rehearsals. This is it.
And IT MATTERS FOR YOU TO TAKE CENTER STAGE.

This episode is for any woman that’s ever felt like there’s no time for you. That’s ever felt like you can’t even have a moment to yourself. (special shout out to the moms!)

This episode is for any woman that’s ever believed that you can’t do this weight loss thing, that it’s not possible for you, or that you don’t even deserve it.

In this episode you’re gonna learn exactly what to do when your brain wants to tell you that:
- you can’t lose the weight you want to lose
- that you’re not capable of changing the habits you want to change
- that you’re not capable of experiencing emotions without going to food/emotionally eating
- that it’s impossible to achieve the kinds of results you’re wanting to create
- that you don’t deserve having what you want, or Taking Center Stage

Your brain was simply misinformed.

We’re gonna re-educate it.  LISTEN NOW

There's thousands of women that listen to this podcast every. single. week.

And there's ONE THING that's keeping THOUSANDS of you stuck (hint- it's what this podcast is ALL about).

You gotta listen to find out.

This podcast is an invitation, from the very depths of my soul - POUR INTO YOU.... Why???

Because we’ve been socialized as women to pour into EVERYONE else, except ourselves.
To give so much OF ourselves, but not to give TO ourselves.

This week on the podcast I’m doing something I’ve never done- I’m sharing with you my TOP 4 FAVORITE THINGS IN 2021. We’re talking… my current favorite supplements, products, and more! If you’re a product junkie (but even if you're not!) you’re not gonna wanna miss this one.

And of course,  I’m not ‘just’ going to tell you about these products, I’ll also be integrating concepts on belief and mindset that will get you feeling empowered and able to get out of any ‘rut’.

Here’s some of the things I get into in this episode:

1. How to be the BEST kind of product junkie, knowing that products alone, in and of themselves will NOT be the ‘solution’ to a weight struggle. They are NOT the end-all-be-all. But! They sure can support your personal goals AND if you’ve addressed the sabotage and the limiting beliefs perpetuating any struggle… they sure can be fun!

2. How to address the fact that NOT ONLY are there differing opinions about supplements, products and yes, even nutrition and weight loss approaches… but in-fact, even opposing opinions and literature. One minute you’re hearing that vitamin ‘X’ is a waste of money, while the next morning you’re hearing on the morning news that it’s essential for a great life and optimal health (WTH!) No worries. I got you. There’s a SIMPLE process and solution.

3. How to stop being a perfectionist and stressing yourself the F-out about things... like supplements, expert recommendations, and on and on...

YES! I'll be including the links to my most favorite products n’ things of the year! (you can find the links in the episode show notes HERE).

But remember products and supplements themselves alone do not and can not create the kind of results and transformation you’re wanting; YOUR MINDSET, YOUR THOUGHTS, & YOUR BELIEFS are always what ultimately allow you to do so.

Make sure to tune in and listen to the mindset gems jam-packed in this episode.

This episode is your antidote for any ‘F’-it over eating and sabotaging habits. >>> It’s a MUST listen, for all my listeners!

If you feel like you can’t trust yourself to eat certain things without overeating (ie- sugar/sweets, nuts, crunchy stuff, etc) …

If you feel like you eat ‘great’ for a few days (or maybe even a few weeks) but then you have a miss step and suddenly you’ve gone off the rails…

If it feels IMPOSSIBLE to get through weekends, vacations or your evenings without sabotaging and overeating…

THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU.

In this episode I take you by the hand and walk you through a CORE BELIEF SYSTEM that I had to first deconstruct and then re-build for myself in order to stop constantly overeating and sabotaging my results.

I teach you the concept of: BOTH, AND.

This won’t just change your weight loss experience and results, THIS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

BELIEVING IN MY TOTAL CAPACITY for BOTH, AND revolutionized this area of my life… and BEYOND.

No matter how long you’ve struggled with your weight and overeating, I’M CERTAIN OF YOUR TOTAL CAPACITY.

YOU can also love this area of your life and decondition any habits of sabotage, as well as the struggle.

OF COURSE you can do this, sister. OF COURSE you can-

Most weight re-gain and weight loss plateaus happen because of emotional over-eating.

Another way to say this:

Using food and eating in order to 'manage' certain emotions.

Here's a quick list of the kinds of emotions women tend to over eat about:
Stress, overwhelm, pressure, feeling 'burned out', shame, worry, uncertainty, failure, boredom, feeling 'not enough', urgency, dissatisfaction (...& more!)

It's an ineffective coping mechanism, but yet it makes sense because as humans our brains are wired to want to seek pleasure & avoid pain (Psychology's Motivational Triad)

Which is why, one of THE MOST important skills for losing 'the last 10' pounds (insert your goal here) is the essential life-skill of allowing emotions.

EMOTIONAL COURAGE is the willingness and ability to be with and allow the full spectrum of human emotions.

What I often see is that as my clients are developing the skill of experiencing their emotions (instead of eating about them) they only sorta--kinda, and for limited-amount-of-time allow the emotion, which leads to eventually emotionally over eating when this is the case.

For these reasons, it's important to be able to self-assess if you're FULLY allowing the emotion you're experiencing OR only kinda--sorta, for-a-limited-amount-of-time.

In this episode, I teach you a BRAND NEW CONCEPT: THE FULL SIT.

You'll be able to use this concept as a tool for checking in, and assessing if you are fully allowing your emotional experiences, or not.

If you still end up eating things you know do NOT move you closer to your goal, and if you find yourself still emotionally overeating (eating when you've been feeling overwhelmed, bored, disappointed...) even though you feel like you ARE allowing and experiencing some of these emotions - this episode is for you.

AWARENESS WITHOUT JUDGEMENT is an essential foundation for creating ANY change.

Most people try to create change in their habits, behaviors and results (especially the weight related stuff!) through self-criticism and/or ‘I’ll start perfect on Monday’ wishful type thinking …

Neither approach is effective, because in either case, the way through to creating change requires  AWARENESS WITHOUT JUDGEMENT.

In order to create change - in your habits and results - understanding your current actions is an important part of the process that can’t be missed.

In this episode you’ll learn HOW you can create awareness without judgement, and WHY it’s an essential ‘building block’ for creating the change and results you’re wanting.

THE CHANGES YOU WANT TO CREATE [and the results you want to achieve…] ARE POSSIBLE.

LISTEN NOW to learn more about this foundational part of the process.

I recently got an email saying:
‘I've listened to several episodes of your podcast. Each episode is a welcome dose of wisdom, empathy, responsibility and empowerment. The concept of "making decisions" vs "following rules" was especially empowering to me. I like that you drain the drama out of weight loss, and boil it down to choice and consequence. You've somehow pulled together the body positivity stuff and coupled it with still being able to reach for goals. You are the first person I have ever listened to that holistically addresses all the things I want, and that gives me hope.'

And I gotta say, I totally agree with their observation.I believe this is MY super power.
I've made my approach THIS way, by design.

It’s what I teach ON PURPOSE, because THIS is exactly what I also experienced was missing, and it's what I see missing for sooo many women- which perpetuates the weight struggle.

OWNING YOUR 'ISH' matters.

It matters because it's the very individual, adequately nuanced, AND ABSOLUTELY POWERFUL approach for decision making- that most weight loss and nutrition programs are NOT equipped to support diverse women (from all walks of life) in the complexities of....

The way I teach it, and the way we approach it is this one-of-a-kind nuanced and completely unique space of BOTH giving yourself permision you want what you want, YES, including losing weight.

AND ALSO paired with making yourself the head decision making and authority of HOW exactly it is that you do that; DE-CONDITIONING the beliefs of diet culture; and de-programming the all or nothing thinking of diet mentality because THAT is what creates so much emotional suffering and stuckness.

I went to this place with myself:
A place of no judgement for decision making + OWNING MY 'ISH'.

In order to be able to arrive here: EMPOWERED & FREEDOM.

*VERY IMPORTANT*
YOU CAN'T BUILD EMPOWERMENT or freedom ON SHAME OR JUDGEMENT.

This matters my friends, because a lot of you are constantly 'low key' 'should-ing' yourselves and not actually letting yourself make YOUR deliberate decisions from a place of no judgement... where you make TRUE CHOICES- FOR YOU, FOR YOUR LIFE, FOR YOUR BODY, based on what you want, knowing exactly what works for you.

If you want to ARRIVE at a place, where you’re able to experience peace, freedom, confidence and TOTAL AGENCY in this area of your life... and you wanna stop feeling shame, inadequacy, or deprivation: YOUR NEW BASELINE, THE NEW HOME BASE THAT YOU BUILD ON AND MAKE DECISIONS FROM will need to be: no judgement.

Understand what works for YOU.

Decide THAT is what you want for YOU.

DO THAT.

And, then (of course)  OWN. THAT. ISH.

It's been statistically proven that Home Court Advantage is a REAL THING.

It's been proven and supported by data in sports, and today I explain to you why THIS psychological phenomenon ALSO MATTERS SO MUCH FOR YOU in your life.

In todays episode I teach you how this concept applies to YOU and YOUR GOALS.

I break down:

-WHAT does it mean to create 'home court advantage' for yourself.

-WHY creating a home court advantage matters as you pursue your goal(s).

-HOW you can start to create a home court advantage for yourself, if it's not something you've been doing.

ps- even if you're not 'into sports' and feel skeptical about cheesy sports analogies... you GOTTA listen to this one.

Creating a 'home court advantage' for myself - changed my life and allowed me to RADICALLY transform my results.

LEARN how you can do the same, listen now!
