Is it the weight? Or the habits that we do to lose weight? We’re told all the time – to lose weight and our risk of health-related disease will go down. I’m guilty of this as well. My health journey started as a way of trying to avoid following in my mother’s footsteps and getting breast cancer. But the data is misleading. Because we know that losing weight on a fad diet or losing weight in an unhealthy way will NOT produce the increased health benefit that we desire. So then is it the good habits that we adopt that produce the increased health benefit? Or the result, i.e.: the weight loss? What you’ll Learn from this Episode How to uncover the reasons behind wanting to lose weight and what other steps you may want to take to in preparation for the weight loss. Why simply losing weight will not Read More . . .
How to work with your body in menopause and perimenopause instead of against it. If you’re a woman in midlife, it can feel frustrating when your habits haven’t changed, yet your body does. All of the things that we used to do to feel good in our bodies no longer work. As our bodies change to move out of the childbearing years, the habits and behaviors that we do to stay healthy have to change too. As we move out of childbearing years, our body’s hormones shift to support the different needs of our body. As a result, we need to learn how to work WITH our body as opposed to against it. No one likes change. Changing the way we approach our healthy habits takes effort, organization, and planning. But the good news is that through the techniques that you’ll learn in this podcast, you’ll be able to adapt Read More . . .

In episode 28 of the Done with Dieting Podcast, I’m talking all about accountability; specifically, the difference between internal and external accountability – What Gretchen Rubin differentiates Upholders from Obligers in her book, The Four Tendencies. As women, we’re socialized to put other people’s wants and needs before our own. So of course it makes sense that most of us can keep commitments to others, but not ourselves. But this quality is changeable. I know because *I* used to not be able to keep commitments to myself. But now I can. And if we ever want to be able to ‘get consistent’, or ‘be disciplined’, putting ourselves and our needs on the list of priorities, is a MUST. What you’ll Learn from this Episode The difference between internal and external accountability How group accountability is different than hiring a coach – and why you might want each How to become Read More . . .
Do you use the power of visualization when it comes to achieving your goals? If you’re not, you’re missing out. I’ve talked about visualization on the podcast before, in a few techniques that I use within my coaching practice, but on episode 22 of the Done with DIeting Podcast, we’re talking about the power that visualization has to create your results: Visualizing what’s going to happen BEFORE it even happens. See, we often use our past experiences to determine if we’re capable of doing something in the future. (Example: I’ve made rice before, so I’m relatively confident that I can make risotto.) Because weight loss will often take several attempts before we are successful. We often use those past attempts as evidence that weight loss isn’t meant for us. When your confidence and belief that you can be successful in your goal are low, having a vision can help you Read More . . .
It’s hard not to feel like something is wrong with us when we try so hard to lose weight and it seems like everyone around us is having massive success. Sometimes we feel jealous, petty, and down right resentful. We want to be the supportive friend, but far too often when other people around us are having success in getting consistent with their exercise habits, discovering great new ways of preparing vegetables, or are completely beaming because they feel like they’ve discovered their magic formula, what we really want to do is punch them in the nose. But we can’t do that. In this episode of the Done with Dieting Podcast, learn the three (3) secrets that can turn that negative thought pattern around so that you can use other people’s success as motivation instead of deflating you. What you’ll Learn from this Episode The 3 different attitudes that we Read More . . .

At some point along my weight loss journey, I realized that I wasn’t going achieve my goals and have them be life long habits if I was implementing radical and quick fix solutions. I needed to think about sustainable habits. What were those things that I could do and keep doing for years and years, and still be successful? AND if I was going to do something that wasn’t sustainable, I would acknowledge it, but if it could get me to a goal and then I could safely transition off of it, the technique would be worth a try. An example of this is food logging and wearable fitness trackers. In my guide, 7 Mistakes I made in my Fat-Loss Journey, one of the 7 mistakes that I made was being too dependent on the calories in versus calories out approach. And that’s true. I used my fitness trackers and Read More . . .
