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.
