I think about emotions a lot. Not just because I teach people how to kick the emotional eating habit so they can fix what’s causing them to overeat. I think about them for other reasons, too. One is because I’m an emotional person. I wasn’t taught to suppress my feelings, and I don’t have trouble expressing them. I have trouble NOT expressing them.…
 
I help you understand the difference between unconditional love and conditional love, and identify where you might fall right now. Practicing and nurturing unconditional love will not only liberate and up-level the relationship you have with yourself, but with everyone else in your life, with food, and light the path to the ultimate self-care we de…
 
Do you wonder what you “should” weigh? Where did that “should” come from anyway? Who or what determines whether someone is a healthy weight, overweight or obese? Is BMI legit? How do you know when you’re at a healthy weight for you? All bodies are different. Every body has its own naturally healthy weight range. I can’t tell you what that is, but I…
 
Listen in this week as I share a diagnostic quiz I’ve created to help you identify if you might be a perfectionist. Even when things don't go right or you don't succeed in an endeavor, perfectionism is hugely affecting your life by preventing you from fully experiencing the joy available to you, so I’m helping you become a recovered perfectionist t…

Do you know why people gain weight? Overeating. Yep. There’s no escaping that fact! What I mean by the word "overeating" is when you give your body more food than it needs to support your natural, healthy weight. There are two ways you can overeat: 1. Keep eating until you're overly full or stuffed, or 2. Start eating when you aren't hungry. Both a…
 
Join me this week as I introduce you to a tool called “The Model,” which is an organized way to manage your feelings.

You’re not imagining it. Stress makes people want to eat. If you’re an emotional eater, when you’re stressed out, you’re more likely to feel the urge to eat. That’s because when your body feels stress, it produces certain stress hormones which cause you to crave comfort foods. Sometimes, stress might kill your appetite because the stress hormone ad…

So many of us believe we’re inherently not good enough, so it’s no surprise when the ads you’re constantly bombarded with tell you that your happiness is to be associated with “stuff,” only serving to further break down your self-esteem and self-trust. But it’s time to unwind this, and I’m offering a solution that will have you feeling happier befo…
 
Is your weight gain a mystery? It sure was for me for the longest time. I didn’t know why I was so overweight, and it even got to a point where I was seeing a hormone specialist because I felt that out of control.

You’ve heard many times that diets don’t work. Do you disagree? You’ve tried a bunch of diets, and maybe you lost some weight on at least one of them. But then what happened? I’m guessing that you gained the weight back. Am I right? When I say that diets don’t work, I mean diets don’t produce permanent weight loss. Sure, you can go on whatever the …
 
Do you ever feel like you’re sucked back emotionally to a time when something painful happened to you? All of those same painful feelings start flooding you again, like it was just yesterday?

Do you eat to escape from uncomfortable feelings? Dan Emmons wisely said, “What most needs attention is the part of us that we seek to avoid feeling. When we attend to that, we change and the world changes with us.” When you think about it, emotional eating is avoiding feeling. Avoiding YOUR feelings. Your feelings are your body’s way of telling yo…
 
Do you sneak food? Have you ever thought about why you do it? I was a sneaky eater for much of my life. As a kid, I’d sneak sweets from the snack drawer and hide in my room to eat them. When I was old enough to drive, I’d buy food while I was out and munch it down in the car on my way home, then pull into a gas station to throw away the wrappers. M…
 
How often do you find yourself upset because of something someone else did? Something over which you have no control? Do some people really trigger you--a coworker, neighbor, a sibling or in-law--causing you to not show up the way you want to with them, or just making life unpleasant? Are there people in your life who seem to need to put you or oth…
 
How often do you feel guilty? Do you think of guilt as a negative emotion? I don’t think of emotions as negative or positive. They’re all important and have something to tell us.

Do you unconsciously sabotage your efforts to reach your long-term weight loss goals by choosing instant gratification from food over the long-term joy of achieving your goals? You’ve probably heard of self-sabotage, right? There’s a lot more to it than meets the eye. When you continue to engage in a habit that isn’t good for you, like one that is …
 
Someone recently told me that her coach asked her coaching group how many times they were going to fail. They were supposed to choose a number. Does that seem odd to you? I found the idea intriguing. If you’re afraid of failing, you won’t try hard enough to succeed. Then your failure will be caused by your own misguided beliefs. Why do we think of …
 
How does drinking affect your weight? Can you drink and still lose weight? If so, how much? SPOILER ALERT: You don’t have to give up alcohol to lose weight. But if you drink regularly, it could make being a healthy weight more difficult. How booze affects your weight depends on many things, including what you drink, how much you drink, how often yo…
 
If you want to lose weight, what should you drink? What beverages should you avoid? How does alcohol fit in? This episode focuses on nonalcoholic drinks, and I’ll cover alcohol in the next episode.

If you’re an emotional eater, it may be because you haven’t learned a better, healthier way to manage your emotions. Were you taught to suppress your emotions from an early age? Many people ultimately spend years in therapy undoing the damage from suppressing their emotions! Do you suppress your emotions, then feel bad about yourself BECAUSE you ha…
 
Happy New Year! It’s that time of year when many people have made New Year’s resolutions to lose weight. It won’t come as a surprise to you that most of them won’t succeed, and will quickly abandon their resolutions. Maybe that even sounds familiar. While it’s a great idea to set health goals for yourself, I don’t think it’s a good idea to set a we…
 
After getting through a difficult day, or even a not-so-difficult day, do you treat yourself by eating when you aren’t hungry? If so, you’re among the great majority of people who want to lose weight, but consistently undermine their efforts with this habit. Chances are that your parents started you down this road at a young age. If you cried and t…
 
How often do you think the same negative thoughts about yourself or your life? Have you ever thought about how those thoughts trip you up? The thing is that most of those thoughts simply aren’t true! This distorted information that your brain thinks has a name: Cognitive bias. Cognitive biases are errors in how you think. They are when you have unr…
 
How often do you let a setback cause you to toss in the towel? If you give up on your goals just because you made a mistake, you need to know this: Setbacks are a normal part of change. To quote Gareth Michael, “Each mistake is simply a lesson waiting to be discovered.” Think about how that approach could change your ability to succeed at making th…

I was listening to an episode of Cheryl Strayed’s Dear Sugars podcast in which she talked about her experience with Vogue magazine just before the release of Wild, her autobiography about transformation and overcoming adversity. Vogue was doing a piece about powerful women, and they wanted to feature her. On the day of the photoshoot, Cheryl felt g…
 
As a weight coach, I see one of my roles as fighting our cultural stigma about body size. Sure I want to help people be at a weight where they’re comfortable, but weight stigma actually keeps you stuck. Worse, it is one of the last bastions of what many people still consider an acceptable prejudice. Too many people still think it’s okay to talk abo…
 
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been finding my level of stress and frustration is higher than usual. Notably higher. There’s COVID, which creates a constant undercurrent of stress. There’s a lot going on politically in the US that I find very upsetting and frustrating. And don’t we all have at least one personal relationship that we find difficul…
 
Who are some of the people you admire most? They can be people you know personally, or people in the public eye, like celebrities, thought leaders, or artists. Anyone. Now think about what you admire most about each one. How many of them did you say, “their body?” Although I admire many people, what their body looks like does not make it near the t…
 
You can’t hate yourself thin. To the contrary, if you want to succeed at losing weight and keeping it off, you must start with a positive body image and be compassionate towards yourself. Maybe you’re thinking, “how can I feel positively about this body? If I felt positively about it, I wouldn’t want to lose weight.” You can accept your body and fe…
