Key Notes:

“If you watch a slim, fit woman eat, she will typically eat slowly, take her time, have conversation, take sips of water, maybe eat 10 fries and split her burger with someone. ”

“There’s a lot of victim energy caught up in the dieting industry.”

“Look at accountability for self and self development…in context of weight loss, who are you pointing your finger at and how are you wronging your body?”

“You didn’t put the weight on overnight.”

“Are you doing everything in your power to lose the weight?”

“Weight loss is really easy- eat less, move more.”

“Before looking at your hormone panel, do everything in your power for two weeks to a month and then see if your body has changed.”

“Weight loss isn’t hard. What’s hard is living in limitation and judging yourself everyday.”

“You create limitations on yourself and your words create your experience.”

“The change happens in the doing.”

“Write down:

  1. Am I a victim? (“It’s my hormones, metabolism, age. I don’t have time. I don’t like to cook.”)”

“Notice your excuses because that is you being a victim.”

“It’s through your connection to your body that you lose weight.”

“We have to speak to the mind and to the body.”

“Notice the stories you have around other women and what they eat.”

“Your body will guide you to your ideal weight. You’re eating just because.”

“You can’t go from the way you’ve been eating to eating clean seven days a week.”

“You have to do what works with your lifestyle and what’s right for your body.”

“You will not do something if you feel like you have to stick to it.”

“Meet yourself where you are.”

“Food is 90% of the game.”

“The later we eat, the harder it is on our bodies.”

“Notice the eating habits, patterns and beliefs you have around your weight.”

“Recognize if you connect to the victim mentality. Forgiveness needs to happen there.”
