I know you think weight loss is overwhelming and complicated, and you’re damn near ready to give up hope and throw in the towel.

(and trust me, I get it because I battled with my weight and food for 2 decades)

But weight loss can be simple.

There’s literally only 3 skills you need.

I also know that you think that losing ‘the last 10 pounds’ is only for a select few. It’s not.

Myself and TONSSSSS of my clients that have been able to lose the weight we had wanted to lose AND ALSO put an end to the mental/emotional struggle with weight and food- just by learning a process and THESE 3 SKILLS for losing weight.

These 3 skills make losing your weight and being DONE with the struggle more simple and approachable than ever.

AND YES, it's true- There’s TONS of approaches out there for losing weight.

THIS ONE is the most effective AND empowering.

It actually changes your life.

In this episode I take a deep dive into one of the 3 core skills [EMOTIONAL COURAGE)] and tell you why THIS ONE skill alone is worth learning.

(I'll be talking about the other 2, in the upcoming episodes...)

When you learn and develop the skillset of EMOTIONAL COURAGE:
-You can literally follow ANY food plan you choose.
-You can lose whatever amount of weight you desire.
-You will feel unstoppable about your goal, EMPOWERED, and IN the drivers seat of THIS area of your life

THIS SKILL is what you need in order to lose the weight you want to lose.

It's also a skill you'll need in order to MAINTAIN those results that you worked so hard to create

I am not kidding you, or exaggerating, when I say to you that :
--> It is WORTH joining the LAST 10 program and learning THE LAST 10 method, JUST to learn THIS one skillset.

THIS ONE SKILL SET ALONE will change the trajectory of your weight loss journey no matter how frustratingly stuck that you feel right now - or for how long - you've felt this stuck.

If you learn (and master) THIS ONE SKILL it will be 100% WORTH IT.

Hands down, THIS skillset is what allowed me to change my relationship with food COMPLETELY.
Which then, allowed me to finally lose ALL the weight I had been wanting to lose.

If you make it YOUR JOB to learn and develop and master this ONE skill then you'll be able to say... goodbye, weight struggle! HELLO RESULTS.

I’ve been asked SO many times, 'Brenda, what made the biggest difference for you?'

And my answer IN SHORT IS ALWAYS THIS:
EMOTIONAL COURAGE.

Emotional Courage is a skill.
It's more than a weight loss skill (although you WILL lose the weight!)- it's a life skill.

And just like any other skill, it must be learned.
(*that's the best news btw! because people aren't just born with it. And this also means that if you don't have it YET, you can just DEVELOP IT)

There is literally NO WHERE ESLE. No other coach. No other program, that teaches this the way that I do.

It worked for me, and it's worked for 100's of my clients. (you've heard them on the podcast!)

YOU CAN DO THIS.

THIS WILL WORK FOR YOU.

LISTEN NOW.

Like so many women, you likely have moments of feeling exhausted, fatigued, burned out, or just plain depleted...But the thing most women don't know is that feeling tired, does NOT need to end up in nighttime eating, comfort eating, or sabotage.

Believe it or not, I feel tired too!

- I'M A MOM (enough said!)
- Run my own business.
- Sole financial provider in our family.
- Co-chair Latinx coaches community.

AND MORE.
The list goes on. I'd be lying if I said I never felt tired.

And I KNOW that you also have your own VERY important roles and responsibilities.

Here's what's important to remember:

YOU ARE HUMAN.
Not a robot.
Not a machine.

And the truth is that reaching for a bag of your favorite munchies or chocolate doesn't fix anything.

Emotional Overeating of any kind can NOT address or 'solve for' the issue of being overworked and physically tired.

INSTEAD, THERE ARE TWO SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES THAT ACTUALLY WILL SOLVE YOUR EXHAUSTION & FATIGUE.

And they solve it without ANY of the sabotage.

In fact, the 2 things I teach you in this episode are actually known for ALSO supporting (and even accelerating) your weight loss efforts.

I teach you these 2 simple, and TOTALLY DOABLE strategies in this episode of the Last 10 Podcast.

You'll be able to stop sabotaging (especially night time eating!).

You'll feel recharged and refreshed (instead of eternally depleted).

You'll have new breakthroughs in your weight goals - INSTEAD of - feeling stuck on the 'I eat at night cuz I'm burned out and exhausted' so I don't lose weight hamster-wheel.

*AND MOST IMPORTANT You'll UPLEVEL the way you take care of YOU in your life.

Plus, let's not forget: you'll actually be even MORE able to show up for ALL the roles and responsibilities in your life that matter so much to you BECAUSE you uplevel the way you take care of you.

In this episode I  share with you a recent experience and WHY it matters so much for me to have dedicated the time, energy and attention to change and EMPOWER this area of my life that has to do with my weight, my body, and my relationship with food.

You'll learn exactly WHY IT MATTERS FOR YOU ALSO, and why not only is it worth your time, energy and effort, but WHY YOU DESERVE IT.

When it comes to weight loss, what you’ll mostly hear it things like- you gotta be ‘more disciplined'...

What I’ve found in my MANY YEARS doing this work (I've been running the last 10 program for 5 yrs now!) and what I’ve found is actually true: is that THIS area of your life needs a total self-love overhaul.

You can’t build empowerment and freedom on judgment and shame.

So the process that you use to lose the weight you want to lose MATTERS.

You can’t hate yourself into results that FEEL amazing.

(We know this because it hasn’t worked for you in all these years - hating myself was never effective for me either!)

You gotta  give yourself MORE love and support.

NOT less.

Spring is in full bloom. Summer is around the corner.

The weather is warming up, which means, less clothes and more skin!

The shorts start to come out, tank tops, and of course bathing suits.

It’s essential that as you are losing weight, and you continue to have personal breakthroughs with your specific weight loss goals (whether you’re on route to losing 75lbs or 7) that you know that feeling unapologetically confident, secure and comfortable in your own skin and body - comes from your mind- NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE WEARING.

(Contrary to popular belief, unapologetic body confidence does NOT come from the number on the scale or the size tag on a particular skirt)

Being able to feel Unapologetic Confidence in ANYTHING that you chose to wear (no matter how short the shorts, or how skimpy the bathing suit!!) comes from HOW YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT YOUR BODY.

This episode- we're revisiting a conversation with master style coach and expert focused on swimsuit mindset. We talk about ALL things swimsuits as we're gearing up for the warmer months of the year, and preparing for upcoming summer vacations.

We take a deep dive into: shopping for swimsuits, wearing swimsuits, developing your own unique style, and how to actually feel confident and comfortable in your swimsuits.

As you listen to this episode, apply ALL of the topics and concepts discussed to other summer garments and items including:
- shorts, skirts, tank tops and all the sleeveless things.

You'll be able to apply all of the teachings to ANY of the clothing items that you don’t feel confident enough to wear, or even if you do work up the 'nerve' to actually wear it, you spend most of the time feeling uncomfortable, insecure (at best) -OR- constantly internally critical and deeply inadequate (at worst).

THIS TOPIC IS IMPORTANT.
YOU DESERVE TO ENJOY WEARING THE THINGS YOU WANT TO WEAR THIS SPRING & SUMMER.

And this doesn’t mean you can’t have a goal to lose weight.
You get to gave whatever next-level weight loss goal you want, my sister!

But let’s make sure you’re approaching your weight loss in a way, where you ALSO develop the most DELICIOUS, unshakeable, LIFE-LASTING UNAPOLOGETIC BODY CONFIDENCE.

So that you are able to truly ENJOY wearing whatever the heck you want to wear FOR A LIFE TIME.
(This summer, and ALL future summers to come!)

One of the TOP things that will keep you from arriving to your weight goal is: quitting on yourself because you feel impatient.

In this episode, we take a deep dive into HOW TO STOP QUITTING ON YOURSELF when getting to your goal is taking longer then you think it should (or longer then you wanted!)

And why it matters so much to BE PATIENT vs impatient.

You’ll hear real-life examples from my amazing client Erica.

After struggling with weight and food for DECADES, she arrived at exactly her goal weight.

And she didn’t just lose her last 27 pounds that had felt impossible. She also developed a trust with herself and a love for herself, that she believes was worth this process taking however long that it needed to take.

THE REQUIREMENT TO ARRIVE AT YOUR GOAL:
BEING PATIENT with yourself and your body.

Not quitting on yourself because ‘it’s taking too long’ or ‘it’s not happening as fast as I want it too’.

The most ineffective thing you can do if you want to arrive at your goal is to quit on yourself because you’re feeling impatient, or deciding that your goal ‘isn’t possible’ just because creating the changes you wanted was taking longer then you thought it would.

This one is a MUST listen.

If you've been a listener of the podcast for a year or more.

This one is for you.

(but even if not, MAKE SURE TO LISTEN)

As women we've been socialized to (1) care about every single aspect of our physical appearance, to be constantly critical of it AND ALSO (2) that caring about how we look is vain, superficial, and shallow.

BOTH.

Whaaat?! It makes no sense. :no_entry_sign:

It's no surprise then that for MOST women  (3 out of 4, in fact) there’s so much emotional suffering , stuck-ness and confusion that happens in this area of our lives.

Well, we're going to change that dammit. (!!!)

Your relationship with your body impacts ALL areas of your life → thus, it is NOT shallow, or superficial, or lame, or 'selfish' or vain to spend time and energy improving it-

BECAUSE DOING SO, IMPROVES YOUR WHOLE LIFE.

ps. The Last 10 Program is the best place I know to LET this goal matter in the very best way. To come in and be expertly supported in creating exactly what you want.

Feb 28, 2022
Society teaches us to think of our goals and ‘achievement’ in a very limited binary way, either SUCCEEDED -OR- FAILED.

And this socialization goes deep, we've most definitely been programmed to think this way. Not only that, but our brain also defaults to whatever the most ‘efficient’ way of thinking about things, so it LOVED putting things into ‘easy’, quick categories.

Here’s what ALL of this means for YOU and YOUR WEIGHT LOSS GOAL:

It can be SO EASY to feel like a failure.
It can be SO EASY to feel like you’ve failed and to feel shame and deeply flawed.

→ Then when you’re feeling like you just can’t seem to lose the weight you want to lose and/or it’s taking too damn long- ALL OF THESE THOUGHTS AND EMOTIONS ARE WHAT LEAD TO QUITTING AND SABOTAGE.

The quitting and the sabotage, then lead to stuckness and struggle

THIS IS WHY IT IS SO INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT to be onto yourself for any binary assessment, evaluation or judgment of your results.

I see this all. the. time. (and I experienced it myself for 2 decades!)

Someone will have a goal of losing 35 pounds-
and then proceed to lose 28 of those 35 pounds in 6 months (that’s more than a pound per week!) BUT THEN feel like a FAILURE for ‘not getting to my goal’.

The craziest part is THIS:
Because that person is feeling like a failure… they will start to tell themselves that ‘it’s not working’ (although it is!) and then STOP doing what IS working.
Start going back to the habits that create weight gain.

ALL BECAUSE THEY ARE JUDGING THEIR MEASURABLE RESULTS IN A BINARY WAY.

THE SOLUTION? 
NON-BINARY SUCCESS EVALUATION.

You have to CHOOSE TO SEE what IS working, what you ARE doing.

You have to CHOOSE TO SEE (and celebrate!) the results and changes you HAVE created.

You have to teach your brain to STOP making your success BINARY.

Meaning: STOP thinking about yourself and your goals in a way that if you don’t hit your exact goal  in the exact timeline that you had in mind ---> then you think of yourself as a failure, and you think of yourself as ‘having failed’.

The reason that I am able to CONTINUE every year creating breakthrough after breakthrough is because I REFUSE TO EVALUATE MY RESULTS IN A LIMITED BINARY WAY.

THIS mindset is exactly what allowed me to put an END to my weight struggle, and have breakthroughs ALL the way to the results I was wanting- NO MATTER HOW LONG I HAD STRUGGLED- and no matter how much learning and de-conditioning of habits and behaviors had to happen along the way.

The reason I'm always able to EXPAND MY ABILITIES, MY CAPACITY and MY RESULTS (with any goal, but including my weight goal) is this:

- I don’t set expiration dates on my goals.

I absolutely set dates, and I have timelines for my goals… BUT *IF I don’t ‘hit it’ by the time I thought that I would, I don’t make it mean it’s not possible or that I’m not capable - instead I CHOOSE TO FEEL PROUD for ALL THE NON-BINARY SUCCESS up to this point thus far.

I REFUSE TO EVALUATE MY MEASURABLE RESULTS in a LIMITED BINARY WAY

→ I LOOK AT ALL I'VE DONE. All I've learned. All the NEW AWARENESS I have. and so much more.

AND* (VERY IMPORTANT) I ALSO - without judgment - look at the areas where there is continued opportunity for growth, learning, further development of specific skills, and further growth in my belief.

I am willing to be curious about ANY limiting beliefs or ways of thinking I may still hold, that are potentially getting in the way. (so I can weed those suckers out!)

The most ironic thing of all- ESPECIALLY with weight loss goals…
Is that when you think about or evaluate your results in a BINARY way, that only keeps you feeling like sh*t.

Especially if you’ve had patterns of emotional eating, the more we feel like shit about ourselves- the more we feel like a ‘failure’ → the more we emotionally eat and sabotage.

NON-BINARY SUCCESS is where it’s at.

THIS approach will keep you moving IN the direction of your exact goal AND experiencing ongoing new breakthroughs in your results in a way that FEELING LIKE A FAILURE- NEVER HAS AND NEVER WILL.

Today I'm sharing with you my EASY & JOYFUL maintenance philosophy (even if you're not 'at your goal' yet, this episode is a must listen!)

I’m tackling the topic of MAINTENANCE and ‘maintaining results’ from a refreshingly new lens.

One of the most frequent questions that I get is this:
‘Brenda I know how to LOSE weight, but what I struggle with is maintenance and maintaining those results, help!’

I’m telling you now… you might have to listen 2x to this one. And you’re really gonna have to listen with an open mind.

Because THIS WAY OF THINKING ABOUT MAINTENANCE is SO different, then the ideas that we’ve been previously fed by diet-culture on the topic of 'maintenance'.

I mean, seriously.

It’s gonna be a breath of fresh air.

And may I remind you that I have maintained an 80 pounds weight loss for YEARS NOW….

→ through wedding planning, adapting to the changes of marriage, honeymoon, many vacations, travel, becoming a new mom and navigating the newness of motherhood -- leaving my job to start my own business (which was f-ing scary and emotional btw!) -- growing and scaling that said business to 7-figures, navigating a global pandemic --- and more.

I'M ABLE TO ONGOING MAINTAIN THIS 80 POUND WEIGHT LOSS WITH EASE, AND JOY, AND LOVE as I am LIVING a full, amazing (sometimes-challenging!) life.

I’ve also coached 100’s of women who had once struggled with their weight for DECADES, and who now ALSO maintain their results with ease and joy and love.

Clients like Risa, and Monica, and Caroline… (just to name a few) going on 4+ years of having gone through the program and TO THIS DAY are maintaining and enjoying AND LOVING their results.

Keep ALL of this in mind as you listen.

You might even find my ideas on this a bit unexpected.

But guess what?

I wanna offer to you, that you WANT unexpected.

YOU NEED UNEXPECTED.→ Because ALL the ‘usual’ ideas that you’re so used to up to now have NOT been working.

It’s time to mix it up. Let’s mix it up REAL GOOD.

After all, it’s NEW WAYS OF THINKING that will create for you A BRAND NEW EXPERIENCE AND UNIMAGINABLE RESULTS.

There's a 3-step written process, that will show you exactly what's keeping you from doing what you ALREADY know.

If you want results, make sure to COMPLETE THE WRITTEN PROCESS that I teach you in this episode.

This 2-PART SERIES on Uncertainty, CONTROL, Food and Weight loss is a MUST LISTEN.
*Especially if you would consider yourself an emotional eater, perfectionist, or high achiever.

In PART TWO: we take everything you learned in part one, and make it simple, actionable, and clear.

You'll learn THREE key markers which you can utilize to effectively analyze and self-asses your current weight loss approach.

In order to be DONE struggling with your weight, it's important that you're able to identify the ways in which your current weight loss approach IS NOT EFFECTIVE and is WORKING AGAINST YOU, instead of for you.

 explain these 3 important markers in a way that is simple and pragmatic:
#1- The areas where you DO have agency.
#2- The different types of Fear, and the results (or lack of) they each create.
#3- Two Questions you can ask yourself in order to distinguish Empowered Decision-Making VS. Fear-Based Decision Making (which only begets more fear & sabotage!)

We’re taking things to a ‘next-level’ in a way that helps you to CLEARLY UNDERSTAND WHY you do the things you do, especially those food-related decisions that feel the MOST baffling, frustrating and confusing to you.

You'll also learn:

  • the questions I learned to ask myself in order to clearly differentiate when my food-decisions and/or my weight loss was being approached with true agency (vs fear of uncertainty).
  • 3 simple questions to help you grow and develop your ability to navigate uncertainty, so that you no longer need to depend on food/emotional eating, no matter what challenges and circumstances are happening in your life.

In order to create new results, we MUST understand our decisions.
In order to understand our decisions/behavior, we MUST understand our psychology.

→ IN THIS 2-PART SERIES WE TAKE A DEEP-DIVE INTO UNDERSTANDING THE BRAINS RESPONSE TO UNCERTAINTY, AND HOW THAT SHOWS UP IN YOUR WEIGHT STRUGGLE.

Our human brain very much dislikes: UNCERTAINTY.

This is why successful, intelligent, high-achieving women find themselves emotionally overeating, re-gaining weight they worked SO hard to lose… the moment that things feel like ‘too much is going on’ OR when they feel like there’s too much uncertainty in their lives.

If you've ever experienced 'the phenomenon' of wanting to EAT MORE, AS THINGS FEEL MORE UNCERTAIN AND OUTSIDE OF YOUR CONTROL IN YOUR LIFE...

Then you've gotta listen to this 2-part series (make sure to start with part 1).

Here's the thing: If you are a human with a human brain... then YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH UNCERTAINTY is most definitely showing up in your decision making, and thus, in your results.

I break this ALL THE WAY down so that YOU are able to understand your food related choices with clarity and ease.

On the podcast I often focus on teaching and showing you ALL the places where you have SO MUCH AGENCY & CHOICE- but what about the things that ARE NOT in your ‘control’- what is your relationship to those?

THIS MATTERS. So make sure you know.

Listen in to PART 2, to learn exactly what things you DO have agency over, and to equip yourself with practical tools for knowing exactly where YOUR DECISION MAKING POWER TRULY LIES.

On this week’s podcast we are going D-E-E-P.

We’re taking things to a ‘next-level’ in a way that helps you to understand WHY you do the things you do, especially those food-related decisions that feel the MOST baffling, frustrating and confusing to you.

For example…

‘WHY DO I OVEREAT AND SABOTAGE, IF I WANNA LOSE THIS DAMN WEIGHT MORE THAN ANYTHING?’

→ In order to understand our behavior, we MUST understand our psychology.

We MUST understand our human mind, and it’s ‘default’ tendencies. (which btw, our human brain has many!)

One of the ‘default settings’ is that our human brain very much dislikes: UNCERTAINTY.

This is why successful, intelligent, high-achieving women find themselves emotionally overeating, re-gaining weight they worked SO hard to lose… the moment that things feel like ‘too much is going on’ OR when they feel like there’s too much uncertainty in their lives.

At the start of 2020 (enter global pandemic...), people all over the world experienced the phenomenon of wanting to EAT MORE, AS THINGS FELT MORE AND MORE UNCERTAIN.

I bet you NEVER thought that your weight struggle had anything to do with ‘control’ and/or uncertainty (or maybe you had a hunch!). Regardless, in this 2-part series, I break this WAYYY down so that you’re able to understand your food related choices with clarity and ease.

It’s not something that gets talked about much. But it’s important!
Because... if you are a human with a human brain... then YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH UNCERTAINTY is most definitely showing up in your decision making, and thus, in your results.

(*We just wanna make sure that you decide how you want to respond to uncertainty ON PURPOSE. Don’t worry, I’m teaching this to you also!)

These type of emotional eating habits and patterns that keep SO many women stuck and emotionally suffering ARE most certainly about their relationship with food, but ALSO about their relationship with UNCERTAINTY.
→ AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR VERY OWN HUMANITY.

In this episode you’ll learn about navigating ‘things’ (ie. circumstances) that ARE outside of your ‘control’.

On the podcast I often focus on teaching and showing you ALL the places where you have SO MUCH AGENCY & CHOICE- but what about the things that ARE NOT in your ‘control’- what is your relationship to those?
(hint: it matters. So make sure you know!)

GET CRYSTAL CLEAR (for yourself!) ON HOW & WHY THIS MATTERS.

Make sure to listen in, so that you KNOW exactly WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT, so that your human brain ‘tendencies’ do NOT become a roadblock in attaining those next-level results (and the experience in this area of your life!) that you’re wanting.

LISTEN NOW.

Today I'm introducing you to the KRYPTONITE that will weaken and destroy any emotional overeating and sabotaging habits. :boom::no_entry_sign:

Millions of women around the world internally struggle with emotional over-eating and sabotage (sometimes, even D-A-I-L-Y !)

My mission is to get you equipped with EVERYTHING you're needing in order to create the habits and results that you've been wanting, but struggling to create.

Ok, so here’s how it goes down:
You set a goal. You say to yourself: 'ok, this is really it!'.
You say to yourself you're NOT gonna overeat, you're NOT gonna sabotage this anymore because you really want this.
You say to yourself that you're gonna follow your 'plan' for your weight loss.

And then...
Later that week (or even later that day!) ---> You overeat. YOU EMOTIONALLY OVEREAT & YOU SABOTAGE YOUR DESIRED WEIGHT LOSS, YET AGAIN.

I understand this emotionally draining and viscous cycle all-too well, because I lived in it for 2 decades. I know it first hand. IT'S EXHAUSTING.

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

Well, in this podcast episode I'm teaching you the KRYPTONITE to weaken and destroy emotional overeating.

Specifically, you'll learn the concept of BODY ASSOCIATION and I'm deconstructing this for you in a brand new way that will grant you access into a new and upgraded possibility for your weight loss results AND your life.

BODY ASSOCIATION. Sound simple, yes. But do NOT underestimate or overlook it- it is NECESSARY to have as your foundation in order to create lasting change.

When you integrated and develop 'body association' as a skill IT'LL BE ONE OF THE MOST SIMPLE YET POWERFULLY EFFECTIVE THINGS EVER DO.

This approach will have your weight loss feeling: SIMPLE.

*IF *  you are willing to integrate this foundational approach...Get ready to be done with the sabotage.

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

Get ready to be D-O-N-E with the struggle.

Get ready to ENJOY the kind of weight loss results and experience you've been wanting (HELLO RESULTS, GOODBYE STRUGGLE!).

You absolutely deserve to LOVE this area of your life and YES, it IS possible when you develop THIS skillset.

You do NOT wanna miss this one.

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.

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?

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!

Brenda
