734: Ditch the Drama!

In this episode we’re diving into the topic of drama and ways to ditch it! Join us for an exciting Q&A episode!

Today’s giveaway winner gets Bee Keepers Naturals!

Questions we’re answering in this episode:

  • How do I find the will to make changes in my life?
  • How do I maintain positivity about weight loss when I have over 100 lbs to lose?
  • I really want to stop emotional eating. I work from home and I find my job unusually stressful (meaning a million times more stressful than anything else I’ve ever done), which means I work long hours and I spent a great deal of it in panic mode. (The panic is caused entirely by my thoughts about the job). There are times when the panic feels so overwhelming that it seems as if I have no choice but to start compulsively eating while I work, and I find that I’ve finished off half a family-size bag of tortilla chips or 20 Hershey’s Kisses (which I don’t even LIKE) without even thinking about it. I realize one solution would be to do something else for a while (take a walk, etc.) but when I’m in panic mode the idea of taking time away from work to do something else feels impossible. I also get really sleepy late afternoon and at night and use food to keep myself going.
  • How do I let go of past failure to embrace the possibility of new?

We have the winner for this Saturday’s giveaway at the end of the episode! Make sure to stay tuned for that.

722: Discipline – Why It Feels So Elusive (And What You Can Do About It)

It always helps to figure out first in which area in your life that you could insert DISCIPLINE a little more! Be specific with what outcome you want, work on it every day, and stick with it. The highlight of this Saturday’s Q&A episode is discipline and how you could incorporate it into your life. Join us as we tackle the topic!

Today’s winner gets a bottle of Probiotics!

Here’s the list of questions we’re discussing in this episode:

  • Can you talk about discipline?
  • You always hear that you should be “the dumbest” person in your group in order to elevate and grow. I get the concept. But how do you find that in real life? I have some great long-time friends… that I’m keeping but I keep thinking I should do more and find an additional group? Not easy to do at my age and introvert tendencies.
  • The pictures on my online dating profile are from when I was 30 pounds lighter, which I gained in the last couple of months due to stress and lack of focus. Should I disclose that I’ve gained weight or should I update the pics (which I haven’t been taking pics) or should I pause online dating until I get my shit together?
  • Why can’t I stop eating? I’ve listened to hundreds of EB’s podcasts. I’m in therapy and I’ve lost 80 lbs over 2 years… and I still can’t stop eating/bingeing and keep regaining my weight. I still have 100 lbs to lose.

We announce the winner of Probiotics at the end of the episode!

It’s a listener Q&A episode! We’re focusing on one of those “hard pills to swallow” and that is the fact that emotional eating doesn’t really soothe anything. In this episode we’re discussing the difference between finding a distraction and creating solution.

This Saturday we’re answering these questions:

  • How do I get myself to consistently lean toward more positive, productive, thought processes?
  • How do you stop using food to soothe hurts?
  • How can I save money in a way that doesn’t make me feel stressed?
  • How can I keep myself on a schedule?
  • How do you start a meditation habit?
  • I have heard you mention a few times that you have a goal this year of (I’m summarizing here, please forgive as it’s been a while since I heard you talk about it) creating more meaningful connections, better relationships, and being less task focused when it comes to your boyfriend. Something like this, right? Do you talk about this in more depth anywhere? I can totally relate to this and it is definitely an area in my life that I can improve. Wanting to know and learn more about what you’re doing.
