I am not a football fan, but I have some Super Bowl talk for you today (and don’t worry, this has nothing to do with your choice of snack or beverage while you watch the game).
Let’s talk game plans.
The recipe for ending overeating is “simple”: we “just” need to create new habits and thoughts that replace overeating and urges to overeat.
IMPLEMENTING this recipe is a different story – and FAR from simple. It’s a multi-step process that includes the following:
- Getting the information and training that you need so that you can do things differently.
- Letting go of old habits that don’t work and putting the new habits and thinking into place.
- Practicing and fine tuning so that these new habits and thoughts fit you and fit your life.
- Falling off track (really – this is important, because every successful plan requires the confidence that you know how to get back on track and the ability to do so!).
- Tools for getting back on track and a structure that pulls you back to your goal and your new habits.
- More practice and more fine-tuning.
I’ve been teaching strategies for ending overeating and emotional eating for years and I know how tricky this implementing piece can be – especially for impatient, busy women.
We’re entering a time of year where frustration with trying to implement can be at an all-time high. A client once told me that resolutions to eat differently and lose weight only last from January 1st until Super Bowl Sunday – when patience runs out, willpower is depleted, and many people have found themselves pulled back to their old familiar habits.
With this in mind I’ve got two powerful resources for you:
The first is your Super Bowl Game Plan to Get on Track and Stop Overeating.
Watch this short video if you set a goal or a resolution to stop emotional eating or overeating, but you’re still struggling.
The second resource you might be interested in is my brand new Emotional Eating Toolbox Habit-building Series.
That list of what it takes to implement the steps to success with overeating? I’ve got you covered. The Emotional Eating Toolbox Series includes ten months of very do-able training (ten separate programs!), designed to create enduring, automatic habits – the ones required to create freedom from overeating and peace with food.
Designed for smart, busy women, the series unfolds monthly. Each month (for 10 months) you’ll receive a new program consisting of seven days of training focused on a specific key topic (you can see the topics below). For seven days you’ll learn new things each day and take the specific action steps that I’ll guide you through. At the end of the week, you’ll have a toolbox of new habits that you have put into place in your life as well as the resources you need to customize these habits to you.
When you enroll in the complete toolbox series, you’ll then have three weeks to master what you’ve learned. The next month, just when you’re ready for something fresh, or a new dose of support, or something that will pull you back on track, we’ll start with the next seven-day training.
This is a long-term recipe to help you successfully implement!
While the training each month is new and different, you’ll find that each month you are reinforcing habits and ways of thinking that you started to build the month before. The trainings layer on top of each other to help you keep practicing, keep growing and keep the habits you’ve started in place.
I’m so excited about this series – and the feedback so far (from participants just completing their first seven days) is fantastic!
“I absolutely loved this (first) seven day series! It is exactly what I needed … I lost the desire to snack between meals, almost completely, and best win of all is I didn’t hit the office candy jar!”
“I can really feel this approach taking hold. Today and yesterday I applied some of these strategies … and the craving to escape into sugary rewards was waaay down. I am so grateful!! … Your questions are like a safety net…musing about their answers replaces my old habit of harsh self-criticism for not doing things perfectly the first few (or few thousand!) times. Again, so grateful!”
“I have never approached weight loss this way before. It really is fun to explore new ways of looking at this.”
“THANK YOU very much for this program … I love the content and it’s so powerful and useful to have you highlight the fears and blocks (blind spots) that we face. The examples you use are great!”
