THE LAST 10™ POUNDS PODCAST
EP. 253- Greatest Hits – HOLIDAY EDITION! (part 1)
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.
