Everyone wants more knowledge. 

We believe that the solution to our problems lies somewhere in more information/learning/knowledge.
Our brain loves to learn new things.
The brain thinks it is useful to keep learning more.
It feels like we are doing something productive when we are learning more about our problems.
But learning more does not produce more action.
We can learn all about snowboarding, but until we actually go snowboarding we will not learn how to do it.
Learning about how to lose weight will not make us good at losing weight.
We have to do things, change things, plan things to lose weight.
Spend time trying and doing things that will bring you closer to your goal weight.
I help people stop focusing on their problem and start taking action on the solution.
What actions can you take today that will move you closer to your goal? Tell me in the comments!

I Can’t

Can't lives on Won't street

What are you telling yourself you “Can’t” do?
Lose Weight?
Plan your meals?
Can’t afford a coach?
Drink more water?
Prioritize your sleep?
Find time to move your body?
Eliminate snacking?
Take a break from Sugar and Flour?
Take a break from Alcohol?
Reduce your stress?
When you hear yourself say “I can’t…..” Ask yourself if you “Can’t” or you “Won’t”…and tell yourself the truth.
Next, ask WHY or WHY NOT?
This is where you will find what is getting in your way.
Focus on overcoming that obstacle which will lead you to your goal.
Tell me in the comments, what do you tell yourself you “Can’t” do?
Have a great weekend and be Well out there.

Failure is defined as “lack of success”.

That is a pretty harmless definition, yet we make “Failure” mean far worse.

So many of us hold ourselves back from things because we are terrified of failure.

What do you make failure mean?

What would you do if you were guaranteed not to fail?

I have had a complete shift in how I think of failure.

I don’t make it mean anything about me. 

Failure only means “lack of success”…Not, “you suck because you ________.”

If we fail at something, it means we still have learning to do.

We need failure so we can have success.

Failures are the building blocks to our goal.

Have you tried many diets only to fail at them and gain the weight back?

This is great news because you learned from those past diets…of what does not work for you.

You didn’t learn the skills necessary to maintain your weight loss.

Don’t make it mean that you are never going to lose weight. That you are a failure.

If you want different results, you are going to have to try something you haven’t tried before.

This is where I can really help you.

I have been where you are.

I have learned many things, and I keep failing and learning. Still. Even after losing over 50#.

If you are ready to lose weight in a new way permanently, let’s get on a consult call.

It’s free, over the phone, no pressure. We talk, I tell you what I have to offer in my weight loss program designed for us in HEMS. I truly want to help you lose weight for the last time.📞

Click the blue “Book Now” button  below to go to my schedule.

Talk soon.

PS. I can only work with so many people per week due to my full time work schedule, so get on now before the weight list. (did you see what I did there? LOL)😂

Quitting vs quitting


Are you a Quitter?

Have you tried multiple diets? 

Have you tried to change a bad habit and found yourself quitting because it was too hard?

We are really good at justifying our quits…

“This is really hard” “I’m just too busy right now” “Now is not a good time” “My work schedule is just too complicated” “I’m too tired”

In the moment you decide to quit something, you feel relief.

After you quit something you likely have a lot of negative self talk, feel guilt and shame.

“Why? Why do I keep doing this to myself?”

Quitting is a habit.

Our brain is used to use quitting. 

Think about the majority of your days. 

If you are anything like me, you will have day after day filled with microquits.

What’s a microquit? It is all of those little quits you do.

I planned to go workout out, but cancelled at the last min. I want to go for a walk but it is snowing out.
I planned dinner, but didn’t feel like eating that so we went out for dinner instead. I planned to not drink tonight, but did anyways.

Any of this sound familiar?

These microquits eventually lead to the Big Quit.

You Quit the diet, you Quit on you.

I help my weight loss clients improve the relationship with themselves.

If you really want to lose weight, you need to stop Quitting on yourself.

How do you do this?

Have an epic compelling reason to lose weight.
Commit to yourself.
Make decisions ahead of time.
Follow through on those decisions even when you don’t want to.
Be willing to feel & embrace the discomfort of negative emotions.
Sit with intense urges and not answer them.
Learn to fail and be resilient. 

Listen, I totally get it. 

It is very hard to lose weight. 

I wish I would have had someone like me to help me lose my weight. I have been a Flight Paramedic for over 15 years. I know the job and all the excuses of why we can’t lose weight. That is why I became a certified Life and Weight Loss Coach. I want to help other Flight Paramedics and Nurses lose weight. 

If you really want to lose the weight this year, I really want you to take the first step and click here to book a free consult call with me. You will leave the call with my number 1 weight loss tool you can carry with you on duty (and off!) and a better idea of how working with a coach who “gets it” can have you on your way to feeling Confident and Comfortable in your Flight Suit for 2019.

PS. If you really want to stop quitting on yourself and permanently lose the weight, hurry up and book a consult call with me. I have limited spots available due to my work schedule!
