How to Ditch Scale Fears

I used to really struggle with getting on the scale.

I was afraid it would give me bad news.

I thought of the scale as the enemy when I gained weight and my bestie when I lost.

I noticed that there were times I was doing everything right, yet the scale didn’t seem to budge. Sometimes it even went up!

What was I doing wrong?

What I was doing wrong was thinking that weight loss was linear and that if I did “everything right” that every day the scale should go down.

Here’s the truth: we all have human bodies and our weight fluctuates from day-to-day.

Even when you’re doing all the right things, weight can fluctuate due to:

  • Female cycles
  • Eating salt
  • Constipation
  • Stress
  • Inadequate Sleep
  • Hormonal Changes

Knowing this, I was able to shift my internal dialogue from:

  • I’ll always be fat!
  • This is never going to work!
  • I hate myself!

All thoughts that kept me stuck because they created terrible results (binge eating, going off track, throwing in the towel– can you relate?)

But those weren’t the results I wanted, so I had to shift my thinking to focus on what I wanted to create:

  • I’m committed to this process and accept fluctuations as part of my journey
  • I’m willing to stick with my plan even when the scale fluctuates
  • This goal matters to me, so I’m staying committed.

By shifting my perspective, I was able to allow fluctuations without making them mean anything.

Girl, Eat That Chocolate!

Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day this year, I have a message for you…

Just eat the chocolate.

I remember how I used to fret over V-Day chocolate, and would just ask for flowers when I really wanted See’s maple pecan bon bons, white chocolate apple pie, and hazelnut truffles.

Why feel deprived when what you want is totally available to you?

The problem is that many people tell themselves terrible thoughts like:

  • Sugar is the devil
  • If I have one, I will eat them all
  • I can’t eat that and lose weight
  • That’s not good for me

For the record, I don’t ever remember hearing the news story about the girl who ate a piece of chocolate and immediately died, gained 30 pounds or got pregnant, so take a breath.

Ask yourself what you would enjoy having on Valentine’s Day?

Eating a whole cake or box of chocolates to drown your sorrows is obviously not going to bring you joy, so really think about it.

How many chocolates would you really enjoy? Three? Five?

Decide now, plan in advance, and have what you love.

This is a powerful activity that reprograms your brain for success!

By enjoying the treats you’ve planned to have when you typically eat ALL the treats because you don’t “allow yourself” to have them, you train your brain to learn that you are the one who is in control- not the food.

Each time you practice this activity, your ability to decide to enjoy what you want gets stronger– your trust in yourself grows, you prove that you can follow through on your intentions.

Who doesn’t want more of that?

You, my beautiful Rebel deserve indulgence, so do yourself a favor and eat the chocolate.

Your Greatest Weight Loss Challenge Solved!

What creates the greatest challenge when it comes to weight loss?

It’s a question I ask people in consults.

Want to know what they say?

Consistency.

Most people know what to do, but they don’t feel they are creating motivation consistently.

So how do you go from hitting or missing days on your meal plan to staying on track every single day (even when it’s Valentine’s Day)?

Commitment.

How is it possible that simply shifting your thoughts to being committed can help you lose weight?

Think about all the things in your life you commit to: your marriage, your kids, your job, paying your mortgage.

Do you show up to your marriage only as you feel like it?

Is your child’s call for help disregarded unless you’re in the mood?

Do you let the mortgage default because you’d rather buy on new shoes?

In all instances, you do what is necessary even when you don’t feel like it.

Why? Because you made a commitment.

Want to know what 100% commitment to weight loss transformation looks like? 100% results!

What does 100% committed to your weight loss transformation look like?

What is different for you?

Will you practice more consistency? Patience? Compassion?

What will you change today if you go all-in and are 100% committed to your goal?

Many times people think its the right program they need that will “fix them.”

While awareness of what you’re eating is important, the magic pill you’re waiting for is in feeding your mind and feeding your body.

Take some time to answer the question for yourself today: What is one thing you will change today to honor your 100% commitment to your goal?

It’s waiting for you.

You just have to decide you want it.

Have a great day!

Coping with Anxiety and Depression

The other day, my friend Madison asked people on Facebook about how people are coping with anxiety and depression in these insane times.

I posted a somewhat brief response, and read through the 46 comments to see if there were any common threads.

Faith, mental health support, finding activities, limiting news, baking, drinking, and connecting with others were all popular answers.

People also acknowledged they are still working through it, still struggling, still needing support.

I was really moved by the encouraging words people had for one another, so I asked Madison if she wouldn’t mind if I wrote about it, and she agreed– thank you 😉 .

This post really got me thinking because sometimes when life happens, especially in the way it has recently, it can feel seemingly impossible to pull yourself out of the pit.

Before I dig into that, I think it’s important to acknowledge this:

Life is 50% positive emotions and 50% negative emotions.

I know this because it is reality. And as Byron Katie says, “when we argue with reality we lose, but only 100% of the time.”

People think that because I’m a life coach that I go around telling people to be happy all the time. And while there certainly is enormous value in being positive, it is misaligned for times when real hard life happens.

Think about it for a second– do you WANT to be happy when someone dies or your child gets injured? No! You want to choose, in that moment, to have a feeling like sadness or fear.

This is clearly a time when emotions are running high, and people are growing weary of quarantining, face mask wearing, social isolation, and all the things, so I won’t tell you to be happy, instead I will tell you this…

  1. Allow the ugly feelings to surface.
  • Feel sad.
  • Feel bummed.
  • Feel lonely.
  • Feel whatever is coming up for you.

It’s ok. It’s totally normal.

When we allow feelings to emerge we can process them. Many people have a fear that if they sit in boredom or sadness that they will implode. You won’t. Or that they will be uncomfortable. You will. But being uncomfortable is okay. Nothing is wrong with being uncomfortable.

Let me say this again… nothing is wrong with being uncomfortable.

I reiterate this because discomfort was a feeling I used to deeply battle, and whenever I felt any uncomfortable feelings (loneliness, frustration, sadness) I would binge eat.

I got so good at coping with discomfort by binge eating, that as soon as an uncomfortable feeling emerged, I would automatically get a gnawing sensation within me that felt incessant– like I had to do something immediately– I had to silence it! And to bury the feeling, I would stuff it down with food until I literally felt sick.

Learning to allow uncomfortable feelings to surface without trying to bury them was the key for me in breaking my binge eating habit, and creating transformation in my own life, which is why I now help other women overcome their weight struggles in this area as well.

2. Focus on what you can control

Many people want to argue about what is happening right now as a right/wrong/should/shouldn’t situation. We want to blame someone or something right now, but all of “the things” happening right now are out of control for the large percentage of the population.

Instead of fuming about what you can’t control, focus 100% on what you CAN control. Our perspective is everything right now. You can be the victim, or you can be the victor– you get to chooose.

3. Manage Your Autoplay

If you’ve been telling yourself terrible thoughts over the last several months like:

  • This is the worst time of my life!
  • Things will never get better!
  • 2020 can suck it!
  • I can’t do anything right now!

Notice how you have been feeling.

Our thoughts create our reality, so (as I mentioned before), I’m not going to tell you to be happy, but notice that when the autoplay comes up, and your thoughts start looping on a negative track, that you have to intentionally shift your focus elsewhere if you want a different result.

Our brains like to avoid pain, seek pleasure, and be efficient, and if the story you’ve been telling yourself since March is that this is the worst year ever then you will take subconscious action to ensuring it is the worst year ever for you.

Instead, you can take this opportunity to notice when your brain offers you thoughts like “this is the worst year ever” to hit pause on the autoplay, and start a new track that sounds something like:

  • I’m going to take this opportunity to call an old friend I haven’t spoken to in a long time.
  • This is a good time for me to start on that great business idea I’ve had.
  • Since I don’t have to commute to work anymore, I can start going for a walk and cook healthy food.

See what I mean?

We all get to choose how we are being in this time.

We all get to create the results we want.

So let me ask you this?

What is the reality you want to create now?

Whatever you want– it’s waiting for you.

You just have to consciously choose it– on purpose.

Why Am I Quaranteating and How Do I Stop?

Quarantineating?

Let’s be honest, the Quarantine Fifteen is becoming a real thing, and if you are like most people, you may have had more than one day over the past 6 months where you’ve found yourself plowing through snacks like a maniac.

No judgement.

But if you’ve found yourself in a place where you are realizing that living in your Lulu’s has led you to outgrow your work pants, then I want to share with you some insights that may help you better understand what is really going on.

But first, some woo…

Our throat chakra is the center of communication.

It’s where we speak, we feed ourselves, and express our desires.

In a usual situation if we dislike something we use our voice to acknowledge it, to meet our needs.

But right now that voice may be making requests for needs (for things like getting back to normal life, desiring clean air, walking freely without a mask, traveling wherever you want to go), but due to our current circumstances, the requests are not creating freedom.

We may be voicing our needs audibly or internally, but it’s like the universe is saying, I hear you and no.

When those beautiful words are not allowed to get out in a way that provides relief we are seeking, the emotions we experience get repressed; they go inward and start looking for an outlet within the body.

Welcome, discomfort!

We all know that a quick resolution for discomfort is eating– particularly eating highly palatable foods that taste really good.

When we eat, we dull out the vibration of emotions because our body switches focus from feeling emotions to gaining pleasure from food.

Essentially, we’ve given our body a new job: disregard emotions– focus on eating.

While eating may feel pleasurable momentarily, it does not resolve the fact that we are still silenced, so what happens?

More eating. We then train ourselves to follow the dopamine hit we get from eating rather than feeling the discomfort of energy running through our bodies.

So what do we do???

  1. Pause & Breathe: Take a deep breath- nothing has gone wrong. Your body is simply responding to a stimulus it wasn’t prepared for.
  2. Feel: In your pause you will notice that there may be something else going on– there might be some kind of static, gnawing or discomfort that you want to escape from– if you are super uncomfortable then you are right on track.
  3. Explain: Take some time in your feeling to explain to yourself what is happening. Do you have tightness in your chest or neck? Is there a pulsing or a fluttering?
  4. Identify: If this motion in your body were a feeling, what would it be? If you have a hard time identifying emotions and feelings, then use a tool like this wheel below to start identifying what that motion feels like.

Once you’ve identified your feeling, I want you to notice it, and continue to explain it to yourself, and watch the urgency behind the feeling dissolve.

I also want to assure you that it’s acceptable to feel uncomfortable feelings.

The human experience is truly 50% positive emotions and 50% negative emotions.

Feeling negative emotions or uncomfortable feelings doesn’t mean anything has gone wrong. You just have to decide how you want to show up when those feelings surface.

You may not be able to control circumstances, but you can control how you show up for them.

So the next time you notice that you are showing up for an eating event that is not aligned with your goals– mindless snacking in the pantry or eating a whole meal of whipped cream from a can while standing in front of the fridge— take the pause, and go through the steps above.

Secrets of the Top 5% of People Who Lose Weight For Good!

We’ve all heard the statistics about how 95% of people regain weight they lose. As many of you know, I dropped over 70 pounds nearly 2 decades ago, and when I first started coaching one of my greatest visions was to create a sustainable weight loss program for people that would help them keep the weight off for good.

While I did my own due diligence about how to create dietary protocols through personal training, nutrition and coaching certifications, I also got really curious about the other 5% of people like me who had sustained a weight loss of over 30 pounds and kept it off for over 5 years. What were they doing that helped them keep their pounds off?

The following data is according to the National Weight Control Registry Study of Successful Weight Losers (and of course I’ve added my own two cents for your entertainment– you’re welcome 😉 ):

So here you have it..

They exercise (shocker, I know)! While I don’t believe you need to be an athlete to lose weight, I can tell you that working out is something that has built my confidence (and many friendships) over the years. The group reported 200 minutes a week, which may sound like a lot, but note that this is what they do to maintain their weight. We also don’t know if this is walking, running, gardening, weight lifting, or power yoga, but we know they exercise. Start with 5 minutes of walking a week and then add a minute each week. Starting small is key. Rome wasn’t built in a day, people.

They limit television watching to less than 10 hours a week. I’ll admit, when COVID hit, this went out the window for me. And for the days I don’t watch TV, I know I watch a hell of a lot of YouTube videos, so this is a rule I break. Also, with all the tvs on cardio equipment these days, I wouldn’t call this rule essential unless you’re not working out and eating healthy, yet you can’t seem to “find time” to do those things, yet you have tons of time to binge-watch Netflix #reconsiderpriorities .

They monitor their intake. The group reported eating an average of 1380 calories a day with less than 30% coming from fat. Whether you count calories or use the hunger scale, people who have success do so because they have some kind of monitor. I’d suggest starting with a tracking app such as My Fitness pal. Also 1,380 is a relative number based on the metabolism of the reporters, so I’d actually recommend calculating your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) first, which you can do by clicking here. Eat at your predicted maintenance calories for a couple weeks to establish a baseline. If you want to lose weight, you will have to eat less, exercise more, or a little of both. If you need help with this, just DM me.

They eat a consistent diet and similar foods (you know you’re doing this when your grocery list pretty much looks the same from week to week). This doesn’t mean that you can’t have something different, but that you likely have some healthy staples you consistently purchase. I’ve been eating a chicken salad mostly every day for lunch for the last 2 decades and that doesn’t mean that some days I don’t have a steak salad or a chicken wrap, but for simplicity sake, I keep it consistent.

They eat breakfast.

If you don’t follow me on Instagram, then you may not know this, but I have a bit of a waffle addiction 🙂

High dietary restraint. They do not overeat to accommodate internal (emotions) or external cues (availability of food). This is definitely one that sounds easy to master, but it’s where I spend 90% of time with clients. I just put out a new workbook on habits to implement if this is a struggle for you, which you can find here.

Self monitoring. They weigh themselves at least once per week and daily track their food intake. I like to take this a step further and weigh myself and measure my waist daily, and take weekly progress photos. I also track and weigh my food.

So there it is! Now that you have the secrets, all you have to do is get started. I find one thing at a time works best. If you don’t exercise now, just start with 5 minutes a day. If you haven’t weighed yourself in a decade, get a new scale. If you don’t monitor your food, start with one meal a day. Change is possible my friends, and if you commit to making one change a month, then in 6 months you could be on your own path to weight loss success.

I am going to be doing an email series on all of these items separately over the next couple weeks, so if you don’t want to miss out, then you can get my free guide: How to Stop Overeating When Working from Home and get on my email list so you don’t miss out.

My #1 Tip for Losing Weight For Good!

Hi Friends! Are you ready for this?

My #1 tip for losing weight for good is this … stick to a plan that works FOR YOU!

I know you may be rolling your eyes here but read this again- stick to a plan that works FOR YOU!

The FOR YOU part is what makes this different because we are all humans with different preferences, and the plan that may have someone else svelte and slim in a few weeks may have you wishing someone would stab you in the eye with a sharp stick. Can you relate (cough #juicecleanse)?

What makes a plan effective is one you can stick with AND get results. PERIOD. And while this may sound rudimentary it’s actually not. It’s actually magic. 😉

Your mission when cracking your personal weight loss code is to be an expert on YOU! So if tracking macros or carbs or points or clean foods or voodoo dolls helps you feel amazing and gets you results then rock on, my friend!

However, what you may not know if you are still struggling is that your perfect plan may have some elements of a traditional plan but with exceptions that work for you.


For example I love frozen yogurt. Having it at my favorite place- even though it claims to be #lowcalorie and #lowcarb —makes my weight spike the next day. So I don’t eschew it forever but I keep it to once per week. See what I mean?

Where we go wrong is when we get into all or nothing thinking that because we “can’t have (food we love) we are therefore suffering and must devour it every time we are sad or lonely or feeling deprived.” 😭😭😭

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Here’s how this works: Decide today you are never going to quit on your plan, but you WILL follow the plan that WORKS for you AND INCLUDES what you love.

Follow the plan.

Monitor results.

Even if your weight loss was slower than anticipated if you were able to stick with it long-term, and never yo-yo again how would life be different for you?🤔

How confident would you be if you knew that all this time, you were the one with all the power– not a canned plan?


If you need help figuring out what this would look like for you then DM me! Don’t waste another day waiting to get your goal! You CAN do this for good!❤️ 

How to Break Through a Plateau

Someone asked me the other day how to break through a plateau, so I wanted to offer some thoughts to those of you who are stuck.

But first, let me ask a question. Have you been consistent with your plan, or are you “stuck” because you’re not following your program and are looking for a way to lose weight fast?

A lot of people think they are stuck, but don’t follow their protocol 100% and then wonder why they aren’t getting results.

If this is you, then you have to decide if you just WANT to lose weight (you like the idea of it) or you’re COMMITTED to losing weight (meaning you’re willing to take action).

If you’re not sure how to lose weight, see my previous post here.

If you have 100% been following a program, and are not getting results, here are some things you can try to get the scale moving again:

Eat Less

Exercise More

I know you are probably rolling your eyes, but it’s true. Weight loss happens when we are in a caloric deficit. End of story.

Here are some questions I ask my clients when we are discussing plateaus:

Are you consistent with your plan? Y/N
Are you only eating mindfully according to your protocol and avoiding overeats? Y/N
Do you measure portions? Y/N
Are you accurate tracking your food? Y/N
Are you pre-planning your meals? Y/N
Are you sleeping adequately? Y/N
Are you drinking enough water in the day? Y/N

Look at the questions above, and if there is an area where you’ve honestly said no– then you know where you need to focus.

What about HIIT workouts? People think they need to do HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training) workouts when they are on a plateau. HIIT workouts burn more calories than traditional steady-state workouts and often keep heart rate elevated longer after exercise, so there is an overall increased calorie burn in the day (i.e.- increased caloric deficit).

Here’s where people get it wrong- they incorporate a HIIT workout and then eat a pint of B&Js. No– just don’t. Swapping your walk on the treadmill for a HIIT workout could do the trick– adding in extra food BECAUSE you’re working out, not so much.

What about eating less? If you are maintaining your intake over a period of time or eating consistent portions of the same food, and haven’t seen the scale move in over two weeks, then it may be time to drop things down a smidge. If you are practicing intuitive eating, this may also mean allowing yourself to be hungry or eating to satisfaction, not stuffed.

People don’t like this answer, or will misinterpret to think they suddenly need to eat 1000 calories a day to lose weight– don’t be that person. Be realistic. Dropping a small portion, an extra snack, or an 100-200 calories a day from your total daily intake if you’re tracking should get the job done. Drop it, be consistent, check again in two weeks.

What about undereating? Believe it or not, this too may be a problem if you’ve been dieting for an extended period of time. If you’ve been undereating and can’t seem to lose weight on very low calories, then you may need to do a reverse diet to improve your metabolic capacity.

Be Honest. I used to stick to my diet perfectly during the week and then eat like a drunken sailor one day a week and would tell myself something was wrong with my metabolism because I didn’t get results. NOTHING was wrong with my metabolism, but binge eating and excessive overeating was keeping me stuck. Be honest with your eating habits.

#3 Mistake People Make in Weight Loss

This is my third article in this series. If you haven’t read the others yet, you can find them here.

The subject I’m sharing with you today is one of my favorite because it was the hardest for me to learn.

I’m sharing it because part of the human experience is realizing that we don’t get everything we want in the timeframe we think we should have it, and that’s ok.

Mistake #3: Impatience

Impatience is a goal killer because the truth is that we all have human bodies, and those bodies have loads of things going on at any one time.

We think that because we start doing weight-loss producing activities that the results should be immediate, but the truth is that our bodies will drop weight when we are in a caloric deficit when it is ready, not when you are ready.

How many times have you been doing all of the right things, thinking your weight has dropped, then you get on the scale and see no change at all? It happens. It doesn’t mean anything has gone wrong.

What is wrong is when we make it things like:

  • I’m a failure
  • I’ll never lose weight
  • Losing weight is for everyone else but not for me
  • Something’s wrong with me
  • I’m getting too old to lose weight
  • I’ll always be fat
  • Or a myriad of other really crappy thoughts that are totally useless and not true.

What if instead you chose to look at it from the perspective of the woman who already achieved the goal. It’s done; in the bag. How would she look at your situation? What would she say? Probably things like:

  • Keep committing, you’ll get there!
  • I know exactly how to lose weight!
  • Everything is right on track!
  • I know how to take exceptional care of myself!
  • My dream is worth my time!
  • I’m learning patience with this experience!
  • This is happening for me!
  • Results are in the bag!
  • You got this!
  • Just keep going!

The key is to not get stuck in the moment. Think ahead of how your future self would show up for you, and follow her every day until you get to your goal.

Be patient my friends. Believe you will get there, and you absolutely will.

If you need help with impatience, schedule a solution session with me here. I’d love to help you take the next steps on your journey.

#2 Mistake People Make on Weight Loss

If you saw my first post on this topic, then you already know the #1 Mistake People Make on Weight Loss. So great, you’re committed; you’ve got a BIG WHY! What’s next? Read on…

“Should I do the keto diet?”

It’s the first thing a lot of people ask me about weight loss.

Here’s what I say, “Is the keto diet going to be fun and sustainable for you long term?”

You might think thoughts like:

  • Absolutely yes! It is how I feel my best.
  • Absolutely not! I just want to lose weight, and why are you answering my question with a question?
  • I don’t know, but I want to lose weight fast and everyone is doing the keto diet.

There is nothing wrong with the keto diet, and there is nothing NOT wrong (double neg, I know 🙂 )with the keto diet. The results created by a keto diet (unless you are using it for therapeutic reasons, and as part of a doctor’s supervised plan) are no different than those created by any other diet where you are in a caloric deficit.

So to answer your question– whether you follow a keto diet or not is entirely up to you. If it makes you feel amazing, do it. If you want to do it because you think you’ll lose weight fast while secretly wishing you could eat all the things, and then dive face-first into a pie the first minute the diet is “over” then consider other options.

Mistake #2 = Extremism

Extreme dieting is purposeful for very few people in this world, and those people are typically under medical supervision. If you are just a regular human who wants to look great in a bathing suit or feel confident when you’re naked, then extremism isn’t required; commitment is required, but not extremism.

We choose extreme approaches because we want fast results. So, let me fill you in on a little secret.

The key to weight loss is eating in a calorie deficit.

The key to weight loss maintenance is keeping weight off for the long-term, which means losing it in a way that is sustainable and makes sense.

The shocking statistics about weight regain exist because people like to use extreme measures to lose weight, and then when they get to their goal, go back to what they were doing before. How does this help?

It doesn’t!

The Biggest Loser results are not real life. We know this because when the show’s over, the contestants regain weight! We see people on television who lose 100s of pounds in an hour, and we get pissed off for not dropping 5 pounds after a single workout.

We compare our every day journey to someone else’s hilight reel, or before and after photos. When you see before and after photos, look at the time stamp. Typically months, years pass between the photos. You know what that person did on the days between the before and after, they had to live their life, and do the work.

When I work with clients, the first thing we decide on is a protocol they can stick with.

I have clients who elect no flour no sugar. When they have a specific reason compelling them to follow that protocol, we go with it.

For example, my mother has epilepsy and finds that eliminating sugar from her diet has stopped her migraine headaches. She has no desires to overeat sugar because (for her) she sees the connection between eating sugar and a negative result in her life.

I have clients that do intuitive eating, and simply understand that having the accountability of a coach, and writing down what they eat helps them make healthier choices.

I have clients who do flexible dieting, and track macros so they can include foods they want.

When I notice that I client thinks they want to follow a specific protocol, but they aren’t following it, we make a change.

I think this is important to mention because I’ve worked with a lot of people who are in the cycle of keeping the reigns super tight (eating very low calories, eating very restrictive foods, eat only from a food list) and then have all-out binges.

This was something I struggled with myself for years! I kept thinking the paleo diet and elimination diets were the cure-all because I’d read so many great things about them, but I would try them, and have such terrible cravings for all the things I wasn’t “supposed to have” and so I would literally binge my face off. I was so embarrassed and ashamed, and created a very untrusting relationship with myself and food.

I share this because I’ve had clients come to me who are exactly in the same space. Their intentions are right, but their plan isn’t working for them.

When we reintroduce foods that were previously off-limits then there is always a huge sigh of relief. Making healthy choices that work for you is an incredible freedom because it puts YOU in the driver’s seat.

When you’re following a protocol that someone hands you because it worked for them– that’s great for them, but every body is different.

So before you sign up for the next juice fast, cleanse, IF-a-thon, ask yourself, “is this a long-term sustainable plan I can live with for the rest of my life?” If not, then move along.

Having a sustainable plan makes this process fun and enjoyable. You don’t have to be extreme to get results; you only have to be consistent.
