Episode 228: Turning 47 (Annual Birthday Reflection)

Podcast_ThumbnailFinal

I know. Me crying isn’t exactly breaking news. But 46 was a special year.

In today’s podcast, Kathy does our annual interview of me. What did I learn and what do I want you to know about my life.

As always, I was vulnerable and honest. 46 was a year that I grew emotionally and took time to love parts of me I’ve never explored.

I share some powerful questions I challenged myself with.

My favorite was, “How much louder would I live my life if I loved myself at every turn?”

I talk about how I let go of…

Needing to be busy (so I can feel important and needed).

Thinking I’m lazy when I took time off (because I always thought if I was up I should be working or productive).

Waiting on a perfect body to love my body. I spent the year putting my real body out into the world so I could hear my real thoughts (and change them for my own sake).

You’ll get a lot out of this episode if you keep thinking there’s a body or some achievement in life that will finally feel like enough. I’ve spent a lifetime seeking my own approval. This year I realized how to just give it without conditions.

Transcript

Corinne:
Hi, I’m Corinne. After a lifetime of obesity, being bullied for being the fattest kid in the class and losing and gaining weight like it was my job, I finally got my shit together, and I lost 100 pounds. Each week, I’ll teach you no bullshit weight loss device you can use to overcome your battle with weight. I keep it simple. You’ll learn how to quit eating and thinking like an asshole. You stop that, and weight loss becomes easy. My goal is to help you lose weight the way you want to live your life. If you’re ready to figure out weight loss, then let’s go.

Corinne:
Hello, everybody. Welcome back. So today, we are doing a traditional episode, which is my birthday episode. And one of the things that I do every year is I take some time to kind of look back on the year that’s transpired. I think about what I’m proud of, how I’ve changed. I like to think about what the next year, what I’m looking forward to, just all kinds of stuff. I have just always been one to, one, celebrate my birthday hard, I mean, even as a child. My mom, no matter how broke we were, she always tried to figure out a way for us to be able to have really good birthdays. So we always had parties.

Corinne:
I remember when I was real little, she always worked at a hotel. So the hotel would always let us have a swim party. And my birthday is in July. So it was always, I’d have a pool party. And then when I got to be more in my school age years and stuff, I always had a spend the night party, and she would let us do anything. I was never popular, but my party was popular because [inaudible 00:01:53] didn’t have a lot of rules. I mean, we were going to eat junk the whole time. We’d stay up as late… She didn’t care how late we stayed up, as long as we weren’t loud enough to wake her up in the middle of the night. I mean, every party, we stayed up until four, five in the morning.

Corinne:
We could be outside. As long as she could holler and we could hear her, we could be out as late as we would want on our birthday party.

Kathy:
Wow.

Corinne:
Oh, yeah. People loved coming because of that. So I always had really good birthday parties. And even since I’ve gotten older, it kind of grew into birthday month, only I don’t just celebrate once. I usually celebrate pretty hard, and I will say, last year, I didn’t get to do as much. I don’t think we did… I think our local bar was open by that point. So we probably went to Brother Burger.

Kathy:
Seems like y’all had something in the back yard with horseshoes and stuff like that.

Corinne:
Oh, yeah! No, not horseshoes.

Kathy:
Not horseshoes?

Corinne:|
No! Corn Hole!

Kathy:
No croquet?

Corinne:
No! Good Lord, Kathy. That would be more like your birthday dream. We played Corn Hole. That was what we ended up playing.

Kathy:
Corn Hole, that’s right.

Corinne:
We played Corn Hole. So my brother and his family came over, but yeah. So it’s always been a big deal to me. I celebrate hard, but I think it’s important for all of us to think about… Birthdays are such a good opportunity for us to think about our life and think about our life on purpose in a good way. I think a lot of people will, “I don’t want to think about the last year. All I can find is shit.” Look, challenge yourself to quit assuming that the only thing that you can find in your life is what’s wrong. You will never find what’s right in your life, and you will never be able to create new right things if you don’t teach your brain how to do it.

Corinne:
Defaulting to “nothing ever goes right for me,” or “I had more problems than I had anything else,” guys, that’s not helpful. It’s just not even a helpful way to think about your life. Some of the notes that I took down, for me, this last year, I was 46. I will be 47 on this birthday, which you know you’re getting old… Well, this is what I was telling Chris the other day. I’ve been already saying 47 for… A lot of times when I get close to my birthday, I just start saying 47. I convinced myself I was going to be 48 because I had said 47 for so long. But I was like, “Let’s do the math. Let’s even check this.” He’s like, “No, you’re going to be 47.” I was like, well, it’s like a early birthday gift. I’ll turn 48.

Corinne:
But for me, I think one of the biggest things that I noticed about myself this year was a calmed down a lot. I think this has been one of those years where I have been… I think I’ve always been in a rush to the next thing. I am a big time A Type personality. I set big goals. I go after big goals. I just have always been someone that’s always pushed themselves to work really hard. I spent this last year on purpose slowing down for the right reasons and not necessarily accomplishing less, but calming myself down, figuring out how do I get to the things I want most in life without drama, without thinking that I have to do all the work. I dropped the story this year that I have to do everything.

Corinne:
My default is that when something goes wrong, I always think, “See? I’m the only one that can really get things done. See? I’m the only one.” It’s the I’m the only one mentality, and this year, I really worked on realizing I’m not the only one. I really did a lot of work this year on finding out how having support was such a good thing, but it didn’t make me weak, and I think that that’s a story a lot of women have that we don’t want to ask for help. We don’t want to admit that we don’t know something. We don’t want to do those things because the world, historically, when a woman needs help, they see her as fragile and weak. And I just decided that was not going to be my story anymore. I don’t give a damn how the world sees it. I’m going to see it as a strength, and I’m going to figure out all the ways this makes me better, this helps me, this improves not only my life but improves everyone’s lives around me.

Corinne:
And I had to really think about that, and I had to really convince myself of it, which meant, when I say convincing, I always tell you guys. Write shit down. Don’t just sit around and think shit. I spent a lot of time this past year journaling on those concepts of, “All right, today I’m going to ask for help in these areas. Why is this a good thing? Why is this going to make me stronger?” I would do stuff like that because I had to teach myself another way to think about sourcing help because I have always been someone who wanted to do it all herself because I knew if I did it myself, there would be no one to blame, and no one else would get the credit either. So it’s just all going to stop right here.

Kathy:
That’s so interesting because when you do slow down, and you ask for help, not only do you free your own space time. You actually invite in subject matter experts that can level up the work that you’re doing. So I think about this year, hiring the marketing person who has brought in so many ideas and so many amazing things into the business, and I’m sure that as you calmed down and you saw how you could open yourself up to more time and more ideas, it just kind of snowballed for you, right? I mean, I’ve seen you slow down and calm down and communicate in a much more calm way and stuff. So it’s been really interesting.

Corinne:
Well, I think for me, one of the things that I really grew in this year is, I’ve just worked hard all my life. I didn’t know how to run my life other than from hard. And whenever I did, I got coached. So one of the things that I have had a coach. In August of this year, I hired a really good coach, a life coach for me. It’ll be three years this August, and one of the things we really worked on this year was I didn’t know how to not work hard because if I wasn’t working hard and I wasn’t busy all the time and I wasn’t first one in, last one out, I mean, that for me was how I’d…

Corinne:
When I was younger, I worked more hours than everybody. I was always having to overcome a lack of education. I was rewarded for it. I built this business. I mean, when you first are building your own business, you’re the only person. If shit’s going to get done, guess who has to do it? You. So in the very beginning, you don’t have people that can help you yet. You don’t even know what help you need. So you’re just working a lot. It was hard for me to break the habit of that because what we uncovered in my coaching was that if I felt like I wasn’t working hard, that meant I was lazy.

Corinne:
There was no other story. And it felt very true to me that if I wasn’t basically working to the brink of burnout, then I must be lazy. I must be failing. I must not be doing it right. And she started helping me see that there’s a lot of gray area there, how to really prioritize. I dropped a lot of… And I think a lot of us women do this is that we think that… I was thinking about even the stay at home moms and stuff who will have these lists and lists and lists of things that we have to do. And if I’m not doing these things, what ends up happening is if I’m not busy with all of this, then all I have leftover is a lot of you should be’s, lazy, all this other stuff.

Corinne:
You have to really learn how to… When I’m not doing these things, who am I going to be in those moments? How can I make sure that in those moments that I’m safe and protected from my own brain? How do I tell myself it’s okay and that it’s a good thing? Because then what happens is when you have a soft place to land with yourself, you can start looking at the busy of your life and truly prioritizing it. And I did a lot of that this year, a lot of figuring out where was I spending time working to feel important, working to feel needed, working to feel validated, and where was I spending time working because it was important, because it was going to change someone’s life, because it really mattered?

Corinne:
And lots of the things that I would do, it became really clear what needed to be on the list and what didn’t need to be on the list. It became really clear what, when I was saying yes to things that I would regret later and overwhelm myself and feel burned out over, but I was only saying yes because of insecurity, because of being afraid of not having enough to do and being validated from it. And I think about our stay at homes moms and stuff who can’t even sit down during the day. They’ll tell themselves they can’t. They don’t have time. And it’s just not true. There are things on your list, I would encourage all women to make a list of what is this big list of things that you think have to get done every day that you think you need to do, you should be doing? What is everything that is on that list? And what’s on there because you’re afraid to let it go? You’re afraid of what someone might think. You’re afraid of what you will think.

Corinne:
And what are the things on there that really makes a difference? What I learned this year was the hardest thing for me was to open up space to be alone because when I was alone, it just wasn’t pretty. So I spent a lot of time this year… I think I’ve always been proud of myself, but I didn’t even realize the depth of how harshly a judge I was of myself until I started taking away things and just making myself sit there and listen, and it was hard. And all of it felt so true, but I just wrote and wrote and wrote. I have probably never wrote as much as I’ve wrote this year in my own journals about my body. This year, I have really worked on my thoughts around my body.

Corinne:
For all of you who think you’re going to lose weight and it’s going to solve it all, I’m here to tell you, not only did I lose all the weight and keep it off for 15 years, it didn’t solve all of it. I found more and more things. This year, it was very important to me this last year to really overcome, to figure out why, as women, are we so hard on ourselves?

Kathy:
That’s so interesting.

Corinne:
Why do I still not like my body after all of this? And I asked myself lots of questions, and the only way that I knew that I was going to get there was to start doing really hard things with it. I did bikini photo shoots. I did photo shoots in shorts. I promise all of you… I write my copy for my social and stuff so that you guys know, I write a lot for you guys. I still love communicating to people through the podcast. I don’t have a lot of people that help me with those kinds of things, but the one thing that I have given up is selecting the pictures. That was the hardest thing to do was to know that I was going to get thousands of pictures made of me, naked, pretty much naked. I mean, y’all have seen my bikinis. They like, Corinne is sporting a tankini.

Corinne:
I bought a bikini when we were in Vegas, which I was really proud of myself for even doing this, but I bought this bikini. I actually want to tell the story because I got coached on it because I was telling my coach how I went into this store, and I literally said out loud, “Well, I got these bikinis, and they’re really tiny. I know they’re not made for bodies like mine, but I got them anyway.” To me, that was a proud moment. I was just like, “That’s great.” And she said, “That’s a terrible thought to have.”

Kathy:
That’s a sneaky one. For sure.

Corinne:
I know! And I was like, “What do you mean?” And then when she repeated it back to me, she said, “Why would you ever think these bikinis weren’t made for you?” And it hit my like a ton of bricks because it felt so true. In my mind, I saw a designer and a sewer sitting there, and I was not in their mind. They were like, “I’m not making it for her body. She’s got scars. She’s an athletic girl.” I got big tits on top. They’re not real, but they’re mine, and I love them. But I had to buy the extra large top, and I better not break out into a jog, or everybody will see my junk. It’s on.

Corinne:
But she said, “Of course that bikini was made for you. How do you know?” And I literally couldn’t even give her an answer. She’s like, “Because you wore it. That’s how we know that bikini was made for you, because you picked it.” And it was so crazy to me to even think in that moment that as much as I coach you guys, that I had to have somebody else point out to me that I get to decide that this is okay, and I get to feel good in it, and I get to have it simply because I decided, not because society told me it was okay. So I did a ton of work on that this year.

Corinne:
I have some questions that I answered. One of the things that I worked on was how much louder would I live my life if I’d just loved myself at every turn? It was such a good question because I sat there, and I did this this spring because I knew that Chris and I were finally going back to Vegas. We were out of Vegas commission for a long time, and I knew that I wanted to have a good time. I did not want to spend the summer worried about my body, worried about what people would think, holding myself back and not doing the things that I would really want to do. So I journaled a lot to uncover where am I still hiding in my life? What am I still not doing because I think that these clothes aren’t made for me?

Corinne:
I’ve started wearing crop tops. One of the silliest things was, I love clothes from Good American. I just like dressing like a younger person. I always have. I think I always will. I’m sure I’m going to be 80 in a crop top somewhere by some pool where everybody’s 30 years old. And I just decided, I’m going to start wearing them. I’m probably going to have to have a lot of shitty thoughts and I’m going to have to sit there and worry about what people think until I learn it’s not as big a deal as I’m making it out to be. And that’s the thing that I was talking about with the photos and stuff. This year, one of the things that I’ve learned is I have to quit waiting on the confidence. I have to quit waiting on it to be okay. I have to quit waiting for my brain to agree with all of it before I just go do the things I really want to do.

Corinne:
I think that was probably the biggest shift for me this last year. I had to quit waiting on my own approval that it was okay to take days off, to go on vacations and not check in. I had to quit waiting to feel that I look okay before I’m going to wear the clothes I want to wear, even at this point in my journey.

Kathy:
Let me just ask you, is this all about your approval of yourself, or is some of it also what you think others might think of you?

Corinne:
It’s more about the approval of myself based in what I assume people are thinking. So it’s like, I think I look out and I see what society has said and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And then I deny myself of my own approval. I really don’t sit around and worry so much about… My brain might think they’re probably thinking this, they’re probably thinking that. That’s not the painful part. The painful part is when I think, “I bet they think I shouldn’t wear this,” or “I bet they think I’m too big,” or whatever. The painful part comes in when I interpret that as, “And you’re still not good enough, and you shouldn’t be doing this.” Just all of that.

Corinne:
That is the part for me where the real pain comes in. And most people, that’s usually where it’s at. It’s like, the smoke is what you think other people are thinking. The real problem is, their thoughts, no matter what you think they’re thinking, are never really the problem. It’s like, what do you think about that? And it’s when it comes to, well then that means I shouldn’t, or that means I am, or that means that I whatever. So that’s what I really uncovered a lot this year, and I just didn’t even realize how much… I guess I didn’t realize how much self loathing I kind of still had going on, and I’ll always be uncovering that.

Corinne:
And that was the other thing that I really figured out this year is that it didn’t matter that I was still uncovering a lot of pain. It didn’t matter that I was still uncovering a lot of stuff. I really got grateful for seeing it and hearing it versus being scared of it and worrying about it or making it a problem. But going back to photos and stuff, for me, what I really realized is I just had to quit waiting on my own approval. I had to start acting like someone who already had it. So I don’t pick my social photos out. Thousands of pictures are taken of me at events, at photo shoots and all kinds of stuff. I even send selfies. A lot of times, I’ll send little videos and stuff. I won’t even look at them anymore. I just tell the team, “You pick whatever.” They don’t have any rules around it either.

Kathy:
So tell me what that does for you. When you show up acting as if someone who has the confidence in your photo shoot, what does that build for you? How does that help you?

Corinne:
Well, what it does for me is it allows me to find all the shitty thoughts that I still have. So it’s like putting yourself in the line of fire. So for me, if I say, “Y’all are going to pick the photos.” When I check my Instagram so I can make comments, when I’m checking my social media, I don’t know what’s going to pop. I’m going to show up in a photo. I don’t have any clue. I never look at these photos anymore, and I did that on purpose because I didn’t want to sit around and screen my photos anymore. I really wanted to become someone that could see any photo and be like, “All right.” Either find the beauty or move on.

Corinne:
And I knew that for me, if I kept waiting until I’d done enough thought work, and I’d worked on this long enough, it was going to be a long wait. So I was just like, the fastest way to get there is to just start putting myself into these situations where I know I’m going to trigger shitty thinking. And this whole last year, almost every photo’s a surprise. I never know what’s coming.

Kathy:
So the fact that you do that now, the fact that you put yourself in your own line of fire, how does that feel? Does that feel brave or courageous or shitty? The fact that you’re showing up as this person.

Corinne:
In the beginning, it was very scary because I knew it was going to happen. I knew that I could always pivot my brain, and I could think better things, but I knew that I was going to, not at first. Now, it doesn’t feel brave at all. Now it just feels like this is what we’re doing. I don’t think it has a lot of charge to it. But I definitely, this last year, I had a shift from being someone that needed to figure out all her shit and then come up with brand new thinking like, “Okay, I think I got all this on lock.” Now, I can start doing these other things, and I think when it comes to weight loss, this is important because I think a lot of us do this. We’re waiting around to feel good before we start a program. We’re waiting to feel confident we’ll lose the weight. I just need to get my confidence up before I quit eating at night. I need to feel good about my life. I need to make sure all that’s on lock before I give up that snack at night.

Corinne:
It’s like, no. What if we just give up that snack at night because we know at the end of the day, the only reason why we’re having it is because of shitty thoughts. Let’s see what they are. Let’s just speed the process up a little bit. And then work on that. Make some mistakes. Try really hard for three weeks to not eat at night. See what all happens when you still eat. Figure out what are you going to need to do next? Basically, I figured out this year how to just… Getting in the game meant that the level at which I needed to improve was going to be exposed faster. Sitting around trying to anticipate avoiding all the pain and avoiding all the thoughts, it’s just slowing me down on the life I wanted.

Corinne:
I knew the life that I would tell my coach over and over again, “I know how I want to feel about myself. I know it. I can see. I even believe I could. It’s just not happening.” She’s like, “That’s because you’ve got to start living that way now. You got to make the other version of you louder. Quit trying to protect yourself from her. Just let her come up and realize it’s not as bad as you think it is.” And it never has been. It just hasn’t been this last year. It’s not been easy, obviously, because I’ve cried three times in this podcast.

Kathy:
But I can totally see that. I can see you were talking about the eating at night and about how it feels hard in the beginning, but eventually, it gets to where it’s not emotionally charged anymore. It’s just what we do. And I think that’s kind of what you’re talking about here. When you put yourself out there, and you do something new or do something different and you practice that, it just becomes something that you do.

Corinne:
Yeah, well, go ahead, finish.

Kathy:
That’s okay. That’s just what I read from that.

Corinne:
Yeah. One of the things I wrote down that I wanted to tell everybody, one of the things that I did to prepare for this is with my coach, we have a place where she puts all of the notes of all of our sessions in. So when she’s coaching me, she’ll type in exact things I say. She’ll type in questions that we’re going to ask. So I’ve got three years worth now of sessions notes that I love going back through and reading over. So one of the things that I wrote down is a thought that I coach people on all the time which is I was talking about how I was just saying, “What I’ve learned in this last year is that I know my brain skews negative.” It just does. Its natural tendency is to skew negative.

Corinne:
And everybody’s brain does, but I have a learned patter from watching my mom. My whole family basically, we’re all the whomp-whomp crowd. That’s how we’ve always grown up. So I just know this about my brain, that that’s where it’s going to want to go. And for a long time, I would tell myself, I know my brain skews negative, and I need to fix that. Or I know my brain skews negative, and I wish it didn’t. I just have all this other stuff. And my coach, she always just has such an amazing way of looking at things. And she said out loud, and I made her type it into my notes, which is, I know my brain skews negative, which is huge. It means I’m willing to listen to it now.” And I was just like, “What you just say?”

Corinne:
She said it again, and it was like one of those… This is the reason why I value coaching. This is one of the reasons why inside of No BS, coaching is a key part. We do coaching calls. We have places where you can get coached in written format. We have a one-on-one coaching program. We have all the coaching you’re ever going to need and more. We teach you how to self coach so that you can do this for yourself. We really value it. Every now and then, somebody will say something that will stop you dead in your tracks. It’s like, it didn’t even dawn on me I could be thinking this. It didn’t dawn on me that I have grown. I just kept seeing my negative thinking as a problem I’m trying to solve.

Corinne:
And she just said, “What if we just start thinking about it as you’re becoming someone or you are someone who is willing to see and hear all of it? And it’s such a good thing. And knowing where your brain wants to go in enlightenment. It gives you control and authority.” And I mean, I think of anything she taught me this year. I think that will be the thing I’m most grateful for. I really do believe all of you. I really do believe that the reason why I was able to lose weight is because there was something in me that knew that I was going to have to outthink myself this time to lose weight.

Corinne:
I was not going to be able to diet myself out of this problem, this weight problem, that it was all because of my thinking. And just knowing, I felt like this is the year that I really became friends with my brain and all of my brain, that I don’t sit there and judge my thinking anymore. And I feel so much more empowered than I ever have. I feel more relaxed in my life than I ever have. I don’t know. I’m just really ready for 47. I feel like I have such a great foundation for this next year, and I’m very excited about 47. A lot of people don’t like getting older, and I’m not going to lie to everybody. There’s aspects of getting older I’m not enjoying, crepe-y skin being one of them.

Corinne:
I have gone from someone that had to… Chris was teasing me the other day about, I guess it was a few months ago. I decided to get serious about my skin game. I was like, enough horsing around! Going to be 47, we’ve got to lotion, and we need to use face products. We just have to do this.

Kathy:
We should probably take our makeup off before bed, too, right?

Corinne:
All of it! Yes! I was just like, if anything, I’m going all in on that program. And I he just said, “You went from someone who was so proud of themselves for putting face wipes in the drawer next to her so at least I would clean my face off, to I have a regiment at night.” It’s like five products I’m putting on my face, and every night I tease Chris. I’m like, “All right, are you ready to touch the hydration and moisture?” Because I’m just glistening with hydration. He’s like, “You own more lotion than any one woman should ever be able to have. For every mood I want to be in, I got a lotion to match. I mean, it’s just…

Kathy:
So you have more lotion than Chris does now.

Corinne:
I finally have outpaced my husband on self care products, but every night I have a big lotion down routine. I will not put my clothes on until I have lotioned my body. Talk about a thought switch. It was like, we got to get real. We got to quit assing around. So I mean, I’m really looking forward to 47, but other than crepe-y skin, honestly, I’m just looking forward to it. I mean, I’ve only seen myself get better and better with age. I just feel like I’ve gotten smarter. I’ve gotten my life together. I’ve gotten happier. I have figured out how to create my own happiness.

Corinne:
I was telling Logan the other day, for the first time ever, we went out of town, and the baby, the almost 19 year old baby, stayed home by himself. And it was very… It’s just been a big year of firsts. It was harder on me than I thought it would be. I remember when we left, I cried when we left like the first time I had left him when he was a baby. And I said, “It’s different when he’s going to stay home by himself. When he’s with his Nana, I couldn’t give a shit.” I’m just like, “Going out of town, see you, kid!” This time, I was like, “I am leaving my baby, and he is going to do for himself.” It was very different, but when we were talking about it, I was so worried he would be lonely because Logan doesn’t have a lot of friends. Basically, Chris and I are his friends, and his grandparents. He doesn’t have a social network.

Corinne:
It’s one of the things we want to work on this year now that we’re coming out of COVID. And he’s homeschooled. I mean, he just spends a lot of time by himself. And so when we got back, first thing I said was, “Oh, let’s go lay out by the pool, and tell me everything about while you were gone.” And I asked him if he was lonely. He was like, “No, not really,” like that, and I said, “Well, what did you do?” And he just kept himself busy, did basically what he does when we’re here. And he said, “Couldn’t you…” He was like, “You were only gone for like four days.” He was like, “Couldn’t you go off by yourself for four days and be okay?” Or something like that.

Corinne:
And I sat there and thought about it. I said, “Yeah. I could. I think I could go away by myself for four days and relax and entertain myself and not even speak to anyone else.” And he said, “Yeah, that’s all I did.” And I was sitting there thinking this is probably the first time in my life I felt like I really could do that. And it’s not because I’m an independent person. I think I’m independent in my thinking now. I really realize I don’t need someone else to make me happy. It’s nice that I have people who love me all around me. I have amazing friends. I’ve got you. I got Jane. I got my family. I got all kinds of stuff, but if somebody took it all away, I’d still have me. And I think that’s the big thing for this year is that I’ve really decided to like me, even the messy parts, even the parts where I’m working on it. I like all of it.

Kathy:
Yeah. Well, thank you for sharing all that. I’ve taken lots of notes because I feel like I’m a year behind you in a lot of ways. This question just stopped me in my tracks. How much louder would I live my life if I loved myself at every turn? I was like, I don’t even know how to answer that. So apparently, that’s my work this year, is on my own… I’m going to start crying, my own inner critic and kind of turning the volume down on her so that I can turn the volume up on my awesomeness.

Corinne:
Yeah. And I know for a lot of you who are losing weight or maintaining, this is all things to start working on now. Don’t be a [inaudible 00:38:20] Kathy and work on that word. That’s one reason that we teach all this inside of weight loss because what we want most for you guys is to do this work while you’re losing your weight because you do not have to wait until you’ve lost your weight to do all this. It just so happened that I think you and I both did a lot of mental work. I think we did while we were losing weight, but not at this level. And we are exposing you guys to what I would just call, let’s move you guys ahead faster. These are the things to work on. This is the best stuff to work on. And you work on this, it’ll just be amazing for you.

Kathy:
Honestly, Corinne, it sounds trite, but it’s like, you have blazed the trail. You’re the one out there with the machete and the weed wacker blazing the trail so that other people that come behind you, the people that you teach know how to do it right, know how to do it in a way that they can walk the trail without having to knock away the branches. That’s exactly what you’ve done for me and for thousands of women.

Corinne:
Well, I’m glad to be able to do it because we all deserve to feel amazing. We all deserve to start feeling amazing today. We do not need to keep waiting at all. That’s what I learned this year. No more waiting on that shit.

Corinne:
