Ep. 51 What the Heck Is a TDL?

Today's episode teaches the importance of what we call the thought download. A thought download, or TDL as we call it in the Tribe, is a journal entry. It's your daily dear diary. TDLs are the backbone of what we teach, because you're not overeating because there's food in front of you. You're overeating because of what you're thinking.

Crazy, right? So how do you figure out what you're thinking? You write. Sometimes you just write random stuff and sometimes you write about what's bothering you. Sometimes you write about what happened during the day and sometimes you write about what's great in your world.

Unloading your brain of it's thoughts and actually SEEING what you are telling yourself helps you figure out why you feel great, why you feel terrible, and why you're overeating.

I TDL every morning. So does Kathy. I use the TDL to set my priorities for the day. Sometimes I have shit to unload too! I feel so much lighter when I'm finished and when my day it laid out for me. And I don't lay out just the actions, I decide how I'm going to show up.

This podcast teaches not only how to TDL but what to do when you don't know what to write about. There's always something, whether you want to look at it or not, to put on paper.

    In this podcast episode you say you will link to the resources you talk about and put links in the show notes (there was something about someone’s else’s blog that you read) but the only links in show notes are links to your site.

      Hi Rachel – The book mentioned in the episode is Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frank.
      And the blog mentioned is called “Weightless with Margarita Tartakovsky”

      Let me know if you have any other questions!


Hi, I'm Corinne

I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
