Listen to Episode 326: 4 Steps That’ll Make it Easier to Lose Weight on Weekends now.



00:00:01.350 –> 00:00:25.569
Corinne (she/her): Hey, welcome. By, we’re gonna try again. I’m Karen Crabtree. I am the host of the losing 100 pounds, podcast. Founder of the Nobias weight loss program and having technical issues this morning. So Zoom is acting a little crazy. My computer then donked out with having a robot sound. So I. Everybody says it’s all better. Thank you. Oh, Lord, I am telling you what

00:00:25.730 –> 00:00:33.829
Corinne (she/her): mornings are always fun around the queue, the headquarters of the nobs. So let me tell you about how today’s gonna work.

00:00:34.200 –> 00:00:40.669
Corinne (she/her): First, I’m going to teach you something. So we are going to be talking today about weekends and

00:00:41.040 –> 00:01:07.860
Corinne (she/her): one of the things that I know that I struggled with personally, when, like through the 1,000 attempts that I tried to lose weight was just figuring out the weekends. They always seem to like mystify me. I didn’t understand why I could do so good all week long, only to just like Jack up my weekends like a boss. So I wanted to talk about that today, and we are also going to if you want.

00:01:08.080 –> 00:01:20.060
Corinne (she/her): I answer questions. So at the very end. When I get done teaching you about weekends. If you have a question about weight loss specifically, if it pertains to the weekends.

00:01:20.130 –> 00:01:27.760
Corinne (she/her): ask away, because that’s what we’re going to talk about today. Alright. So let’s start with.

00:01:28.690 –> 00:01:40.569
Corinne (she/her): Why, we have problems on the weekends very. This is one of the things that I watch my clients do all the time inside the nose weight loss program, which is They have really good intentions

00:01:41.030 –> 00:01:45.380
Corinne (she/her): for weight loss, especially on Mondays, I mean. let’s just

00:01:45.490 –> 00:01:49.519
Corinne (she/her): call the State is paid. Most of us are going in every Monday going like

00:01:49.910 –> 00:02:11.090
Corinne (she/her): I’m gonna get for real. This is the week it’s gonna change. Sometimes we have a big ass last supper on Sunday, because we mistakenly think that on Monday we’re gonna wake up, and if I just eat all the food on Sunday. If I get it all out of my system, I have a last for raw. Somehow. I’m gonna wake up tomorrow, and

00:02:11.140 –> 00:02:40.290
Corinne (she/her): that food will be out of my system. I’m just going to be so highly motivated. I’ve taken away all my triggers like we con ourselves all the time into this, like we call it a per. My, a friend of mine who has an amazing podcast called Unfuck, your brain Carla and thought. She calls it our perfectionistic fantasy or tomorrow thinking so, the perfectionist, the perfectionist in us, thinks that if we just reset the slate, do it all over again.

00:02:40.560 –> 00:02:45.540
Corinne (she/her): that. Then we can like aim for perfection.

00:02:45.630 –> 00:03:03.080
Corinne (she/her): And then the tomorrow thinker of us is like cheering this on. She’s like, Oh, yeah, girl, tomorrow is gonna be better tomorrow. You’re gonna feel like it. Tomorrow. You’re gonna be motivated tomorrow like you’ve gotten rid of all the things like tomorrow is always better. But here’s the problem

00:03:03.620 –> 00:03:05.810
Corinne (she/her): perfectionistic thinking

00:03:06.180 –> 00:03:14.289
Corinne (she/her): compiled with tomorrow. Thinking is such a fallacy. Number one. Think about how many times you’ve tried that.

00:03:14.440 –> 00:03:22.360
Corinne (she/her): And did it ever work? No, sometimes you can string along a few weeks, maybe even a month, maybe even 2.

00:03:22.760 –> 00:03:33.850
Corinne (she/her): But at some point it all falls apart. Typically what happens? Though the most common pattern is, I think, this almost every day.

00:03:34.260 –> 00:03:38.429
Corinne (she/her): like I’m starting the day off. Good, and I’m ending the day

00:03:38.580 –> 00:04:05.060
Corinne (she/her): telling myself tomorrow will be better. Let’s get it out of our system. It’s okay. There’s relief and thinking. And I want you. This is the reason why we do it, because the reason I want to explain this I pertain to weekends is because we are not thinking these things because we’re broken. Something’s wrong with us. For any of those reasons. We literally are doing this because there is some relief in thinking there’s a better version of me.

00:04:05.350 –> 00:04:29.790
Corinne (she/her): Tomorrow I will be better. It offers release that right now, you can just okay to your emotions, your immediate whims and desires, but that tomorrow you’re gonna be stronger. You’ll be better. You’ll be more quit. Something magical is gonna happen, and it’s all gonna fall into place. And then that Bill’s aspirational and that feels hopeful.

00:04:29.810 –> 00:04:41.560
Corinne (she/her): That is why we get caught in that loop. It’s not because something’s wrong with you. It’s not because you’re no good at losing weight. It’s not because you’re a fuck up. It’s not for any reason other than

00:04:41.920 –> 00:04:45.610
Corinne (she/her): that type of thinking feels good.

00:04:46.600 –> 00:04:54.940
Corinne (she/her): And then, on top of that thinking, feeling, hopeful, relieving, and stuff, guess what we add food on top.

00:04:55.590 –> 00:05:13.809
Corinne (she/her): and then we get the the like. The dopamine. We get the chemical effect, and our brain is just like this is like cotton candy. This is the best thing ever. I want to think more like this so that I can get some food, and then like it creates like a a desire and a craving for that thinking. Now.

00:05:14.100 –> 00:05:23.159
Corinne (she/her): the reason why I bring it up is because Number one, I don’t want you beating yourself up over that stuff. But number 2 is, we have to be alert to the pattern

00:05:23.180 –> 00:05:26.869
Corinne (she/her): because the only way to change the pattern is to know

00:05:27.190 –> 00:05:28.920
Corinne (she/her): this is my brain

00:05:29.060 –> 00:05:41.650
Corinne (she/her): thinking that tomorrow I’m gonna wake up a different person who’s no longer triggered, no longer tempted. She’s gonna have more willpower. She’s gonna have something this girl doesn’t have.

00:05:42.120 –> 00:05:49.330
Corinne (she/her): and what the truth is that none of us change overnight. None of us. We change over time

00:05:49.420 –> 00:05:56.770
Corinne (she/her): by making incremental shifts and incremental changes into how we’re showing up. But we never change overnight.

00:05:57.270 –> 00:06:08.489
Corinne (she/her): And in that moment, when we start having that loop, we want to tell ourselves this is not true. I’m gonna wake up tomorrow. I’m going to be the same person.

00:06:09.360 –> 00:06:13.080
Corinne (she/her): the same person. which means.

00:06:13.540 –> 00:06:23.289
Corinne (she/her): if I eat all this food now, I’m not going to wake up tomorrow suddenly being someone who’s not tempted by this anymore. I’m not going to be someone who doesn’t want to do this anymore.

00:06:23.540 –> 00:06:29.940
Corinne (she/her): So if that’s the case, what can I do right now? That’s different than I usually do.

00:06:30.260 –> 00:06:37.449
Corinne (she/her): and this is where perfection is also goes wrong. Very often the perfectionist will say things like, oh, well, I just won’t eat

00:06:38.120 –> 00:06:43.280
Corinne (she/her): if you’ve been eating your face off every Sunday night because you don’t weekends.

00:06:45.200 –> 00:06:51.309
Corinne (she/her): I’m going to tell you right now saying that I’m just not going to do that. It’s probably not going to work.

00:06:51.800 –> 00:06:59.319
Corinne (she/her): 90% of us will fail if we are going from binging last suffering on a Sunday

00:07:00.140 –> 00:07:19.999
Corinne (she/her): to doing none of it on a Sunday. You might be able to do it for Sunday or 2, but that behavior it’s not extinguished yet, especially if you’re having to force yourself, because I want you to think about the reason why your brain loves tomorrow, thinking why your brain loves the profession, perfectionistic thinking.

00:07:20.210 –> 00:07:24.440
Corinne (she/her): It feels good, it’s aspirational. It offers relief.

00:07:24.720 –> 00:07:33.619
Corinne (she/her): What most of us try to do. So we try to end the behavior suddenly dead stop on a Sunday by telling ourselves. You can’t do that.

00:07:33.860 –> 00:07:37.360
Corinne (she/her): you know, Karen said. That’s a shitty way to end the weekend.

00:07:37.560 –> 00:07:57.210
Corinne (she/her): We give ourselves a lot of thinking that doesn’t replace the good thinking. We replace it with harsh will power force. Restriction is so unfair that I don’t get to eat this. I’m going to have to start a diet tomorrow. We talk about it so excruciatingly, and then we wonder why our brain is like.

00:07:57.310 –> 00:08:11.340
Corinne (she/her): Damn! That feels like shit. We’re like having a legit party. 2 weeks ago, when I was telling you all about this better person you’re gonna be in, then you would eat some oreos, and then you’d wash it down with some chips and some like, you know. Do

00:08:12.600 –> 00:08:17.979
Corinne (she/her): so we have to be aware of all this. So the answer is, you have to figure out for the weekends.

00:08:18.180 –> 00:08:22.119
Corinne (she/her): How are we going to just do and think things through differently

00:08:22.680 –> 00:08:24.660
Corinne (she/her): that feels aspirational?

00:08:24.950 –> 00:08:31.070
Corinne (she/her): It feels hopeful that offers some relief. So I’ve got 4 things that we can think about

00:08:31.260 –> 00:08:40.999
Corinne (she/her): when we’re talking about our summer weekends. or any weekend, for that matter. And how do you have weekends? And how do you have fun in the summer?

00:08:41.110 –> 00:08:44.339
Corinne (she/her): How do you go on vacations and just not gain weight?

00:08:44.440 –> 00:08:47.049
Corinne (she/her): And I think so much of it starts

00:08:47.520 –> 00:08:50.409
Corinne (she/her): with figuring out your weekends.

00:08:50.680 –> 00:09:06.359
Corinne (she/her): So many of us do well during the week. Not all of us, but a lot of us. We do pretty good during the week. and then, by the weekend, it’s like we wake up, and we’re just like what the fuck happened like. Why was I doing so good? And then suddenly the wheels just flew right off my bus.

00:09:06.810 –> 00:09:20.599
Corinne (she/her): So here are the 4 things the first thing you can do before you go into the weekend is Sp, I’m a big believer. Hang on my app has asked me, can I trust my own computer?

00:09:20.880 –> 00:09:26.550
Corinne (she/her): I want you to get out your like. Your journal. Mine happens to be in my ipad.

00:09:27.350 –> 00:09:31.590
Corinne (she/her): and I want you to write about your Monday version of you.

00:09:32.280 –> 00:09:37.640
Corinne (she/her): I want you to think about. How does she want to wake up Monday morning?

00:09:38.050 –> 00:09:45.930
Corinne (she/her): What does she want to reflect upon like she wants to look at her weekend and think these are the things that I did. Well.

00:09:46.350 –> 00:09:48.829
Corinne (she/her): she wants to wake up and be proud.

00:09:49.000 –> 00:10:01.919
Corinne (she/her): She wants to wake up and not be bloated from eating all weekend. So one of the first things we have to do is when we go into the weekend, so many of us do this, we start thinking about how good we’ve been.

00:10:02.130 –> 00:10:04.969
Corinne (she/her): and we start thinking about.

00:10:06.560 –> 00:10:07.799
Corinne (she/her): I deserve it.

00:10:07.930 –> 00:10:10.500
Corinne (she/her): I need a treat. I just need a break

00:10:10.900 –> 00:10:20.800
Corinne (she/her): a little won’t hurt our excuses. Come in, and we spend our time thinking about the weekend, and we think about the food we’re going to eat.

00:10:21.360 –> 00:10:22.789
Corinne (she/her): and we think about

00:10:23.030 –> 00:10:33.719
Corinne (she/her): how we deserve it. This is what I need you to switch. I need you to start the weekend, not thinking about everything you’re going to eat. I want you to start the weekend thinking about

00:10:33.780 –> 00:10:36.110
Corinne (she/her): how you want to feel Monday morning.

00:10:37.660 –> 00:10:41.840
Corinne (she/her): What is important about Monday morning to you?

00:10:41.890 –> 00:10:46.530
Corinne (she/her): He’d like to wake up feeling this way.

00:10:46.780 –> 00:10:56.839
Corinne (she/her): thinking these things being proud of. instead of spending so much time thinking about what you can get away with.

00:10:57.740 –> 00:10:59.500
Corinne (she/her): what won’t hurt.

00:10:59.630 –> 00:11:08.820
Corinne (she/her): how hard weekends are. I need you to stop focusing so much there. you’ve been doing that for years, and it’s not working.

00:11:09.180 –> 00:11:23.040
Corinne (she/her): So when you catch yourself doing it, I want you to think about before I indulge in thinking about what I can’t do. This weekend. How much of a break I need a little won’t hurt. Let me spend time with Monday morning, me

00:11:24.010 –> 00:11:38.790
Corinne (she/her): and Monday morning. Me, you finish the weekend proud she’s thinking these things. She did these things all of that. Now step 2 is, once you’ve decided how you want to be on Monday morning.

00:11:39.050 –> 00:11:56.880
Corinne (she/her): The next thing we have to do is we have to think about what did we do to make that happen? What? And this is where I want. This is where I’m different than most diets. Most sides are going to just say, like you’re just going to do your normal plan, and then you can have a cheat mail, or you know something along those lines.

00:11:57.640 –> 00:11:59.339
Corinne (she/her): I don’t want you thinking that way.

00:12:00.090 –> 00:12:06.479
Corinne (she/her): I also don’t want you thinking. Well, the how I did it was every time I wanted something, I told myself. No.

00:12:08.490 –> 00:12:20.699
Corinne (she/her): it would be great if we could all just tell ourselves. No, and that’d be the easiest thing ever. But for most of us the reason why we’re eating our face off on the weekends are going off track on the weekends is because telling ourselves. No.

00:12:20.790 –> 00:12:31.249
Corinne (she/her): it’s not energetic enough often telling ourselves. No. on the other side of the know is, no, because. like, if you were just saying

00:12:31.290 –> 00:12:41.739
Corinne (she/her): that’s a no, I’m not gonna have seconds. And it was literally just like, I’m not gonna have seconds, and it was boring like that, you would be fine. But here’s what’s really happening in your brain.

00:12:42.640 –> 00:12:48.949
Corinne (she/her): I’m gonna say no to seconds, because if I say yes, I’ll blow it.

00:12:49.010 –> 00:13:01.520
Corinne (she/her): I’ll say no, because if I eat this I’m gonna gain all kinds of weight. It means I can’t lose weight. So much of what is behind the no

00:13:01.610 –> 00:13:03.340
Corinne (she/her): is fears.

00:13:03.710 –> 00:13:07.630
Corinne (she/her): doubts, and a lot of tearing ourselves down.

00:13:08.390 –> 00:13:12.799
Corinne (she/her): And y’all we don’t want to mess with that we don’t want to do that.

00:13:13.010 –> 00:13:29.019
Corinne (she/her): So what we want to do is we want to think about what did I do differently this weekend? What were the small changes I made? If I tell myself no, what is a good reason for it.

00:13:29.120 –> 00:13:38.529
Corinne (she/her): why is that the best thing for me? Why is that more than fair. Why is that more fair to tell myself? No, than it is to unfair to tell myself? No!

00:13:38.710 –> 00:13:45.400
Corinne (she/her): Why is no like what is it going to do for me instead of what is it going to take away from me?

00:13:46.060 –> 00:13:51.639
Corinne (she/her): And then I want you to just think about like there’s these little things that I do that are different.

00:13:51.880 –> 00:14:06.040
Corinne (she/her): There’s these things that I tell myself. All weekend here are the problems I’m likely to run up on this weekend. And here’s what I want to remind myself in the moment. So let’s say you have last minute plans.

00:14:06.370 –> 00:14:24.899
Corinne (she/her): It’s the summer. There’s a frickin barbecue suddenly happening at the neighbor’s house, and they’ve got the pool, and they got Corn hall, and they got the best music on the block. You’re invited, and it’s literally a barbecue. Coles. Wall, mashed potato, baked bean, homemade pie festival.

00:14:27.140 –> 00:14:30.660
Corinne (she/her): And you are like I did not plan any of this.

00:14:30.840 –> 00:14:44.100
Corinne (she/her): Oh, my God! I am trying to lose weight. Here’s what I don’t want you to do. I don’t want you to say no to the party. I want you to decide. How can I go to this party and still wake up Monday morning, proud.

00:14:44.890 –> 00:14:46.809
Corinne (she/her): When I go to this party.

00:14:47.490 –> 00:14:50.389
I want to say No to at the party

00:14:50.750 –> 00:14:51.780
Corinne (she/her): that

00:14:51.960 –> 00:14:54.940
strengthens my relationship with food

00:14:55.200 –> 00:15:02.599
Corinne (she/her): leaves me walking out of there. Proud helps me feel like I’m included.

00:15:03.420 –> 00:15:11.429
Corinne (she/her): like I want you to think about things in a new way. The biggest problem that I see in the dive industry right now is y’all are getting

00:15:11.470 –> 00:15:16.910
Corinne (she/her): thousands and thousands and thousands of tactics thrown at you left and right.

00:15:17.450 –> 00:15:28.069
Corinne (she/her): None of you need more tactics. None of you need to be told what food is good and bad anymore. I’m going to tell all of you. None of the food is bad and none of the food is good.

00:15:29.600 –> 00:15:37.360
Corinne (she/her): You just have food options and you have decisions on whether or not. You’re going to eat them. and you’ll have reasons.

00:15:38.350 –> 00:15:45.640
Corinne (she/her): But I promise all of you. I have worked with thousands and thousands and thousands of women to help them lose weight.

00:15:45.860 –> 00:16:08.209
Corinne (she/her): So many are losing weight just listening to this one little free broadcast a month. and I never tell people what’s good and bad to eat. That means you don’t need to focus any more on like, should I have bread or not, or the right combinations? The diet industry has warped us on this. Do you know where weight loss happens?

00:16:08.690 –> 00:16:23.150
Corinne (she/her): Weight loss happens in the tiny decisions? If you’re eating baked beans, smashed potatoes and barbecue. do you know what the biggest decision is. Not whether or not you’ve blown it eating some cards.

00:16:23.670 –> 00:16:28.420
Corinne (she/her): The best decision you make in that moment is I’m gonna have this.

00:16:28.840 –> 00:16:31.919
Corinne (she/her): and as long as I don’t over eat it I’m good.

00:16:32.730 –> 00:16:47.029
Corinne (she/her): The problem with my weight has always been. When I eat food like this. It’s not the food, the problems been? I thought it was the food. The problem is the moment I start thinking the foods, the problem, I go into fuck it mode, and then I eat all I can

00:16:47.330 –> 00:16:53.700
Corinne (she/her): I eat like this is the last supper I eat like. I’m never going to get another mashed potato again in my life.

00:16:54.210 –> 00:16:56.569
Corinne (she/her): That’s why I keep gaining weight.

00:16:57.250 –> 00:17:01.560
Corinne (she/her): So it’s not the food. It’s not the potatoes. It’s

00:17:01.620 –> 00:17:09.630
Corinne (she/her): what I do with the potatoes, because I’m telling myself. Something’s wrong with me, and something is wrong with the food.

00:17:09.760 –> 00:17:16.879
Corinne (she/her): and I’m gonna tell all of you. I teach this all the time inside my private membership. We coach on this constantly.

00:17:18.520 –> 00:17:23.360
Corinne (she/her): There are no good food and bad foods. You cannot afford to think that way.

00:17:24.140 –> 00:17:37.400
Corinne (she/her): because the moment you eat a food you’ve labeled bad because the diet industry has taught you some courtship. It is impossible for you not to internalize that as

00:17:37.410 –> 00:17:38.940
Corinne (she/her): you are bad.

00:17:40.790 –> 00:17:43.629
Corinne (she/her): This is why we can’t afford to think that way. Y’all.

00:17:44.460 –> 00:17:56.980
Corinne (she/her): you may have health conditions. And this is this is always the argument that I get. They came in. You don’t know. I am a diabetic, but you don’t know. I have Celia

00:17:56.990 –> 00:18:21.580
Corinne (she/her): people to argue this with me all the time. It’s like they’re saying you don’t know about my menopause, my Pcos, my diabetes, my! See that you don’t know. Here’s what I know. When you sit around and tell yourself you can’t have certain foods you feel like shit, and the more you feel like shit, the more likely you are to eat, not eat shit, but overeat.

00:18:23.050 –> 00:18:28.029
Corinne (she/her): If you have any of those conditions. Stop saying. I can’t have

00:18:28.610 –> 00:18:39.499
Corinne (she/her): you know what your option is. I choose not to eat these foods, because I prioritize my health above having an orgasm in my mouth because I like cake.

00:18:40.450 –> 00:18:48.870
Corinne (she/her): I’m learning to have a live that’s made up more than just what I’m putting in my mouth. You could be thinking those things.

00:18:49.760 –> 00:19:00.359
Corinne (she/her): So nobody try to argue with me and justify that you should sit around and think about all the things that you can’t do, because all that does is leave you feeling like shit.

00:19:00.470 –> 00:19:06.930
Corinne (she/her): If you have a medical condition, why do you want to feel sorry for yourself on top. Ask yourself that

00:19:08.100 –> 00:19:11.900
Corinne (she/her): like, why would I want to feel sorry for myself?

00:19:13.210 –> 00:19:25.009
Corinne (she/her): Why not feel proud of myself that I’m going to do things to help me. Why not feel hopeful that there are decisions I can make about food.

00:19:25.050 –> 00:19:30.110
Corinne (she/her): and that I can get to live in my life? Why not think I have a live.

00:19:30.650 –> 00:19:33.490
Corinne (she/her): A lot of people, don’t. There will be people today

00:19:33.660 –> 00:19:38.939
Corinne (she/her): that will cash in all the chips of life today. You won’t be one of them.

00:19:39.740 –> 00:19:46.479
Corinne (she/her): This is why it’s so important for us to always be thinking about when it comes to weight loss. It is

00:19:46.600 –> 00:19:52.930
Corinne (she/her): a thousand times more imperative. an important that you think about

00:19:54.160 –> 00:19:59.079
Corinne (she/her): what you’re thinking about before you eat. Then it is what you’re actually putting in your mouth.

00:20:00.050 –> 00:20:07.600
Corinne (she/her): because, whatever the story is that you keep telling yourself around the food completely dictates how much food you’ll eat

00:20:07.950 –> 00:20:10.730
Corinne (she/her): if you’ll continue to try.

00:20:11.580 –> 00:20:13.120
Corinne (she/her): If you’ll quit.

00:20:13.870 –> 00:20:17.440
Corinne (she/her): whether or not you’re going to give up or level up yourself.

00:20:18.520 –> 00:20:24.999
Corinne (she/her): You have to quit trying diets that only focus on your calories, your macros.

00:20:25.240 –> 00:20:27.259
Corinne (she/her): and which food you can’t have.

00:20:28.400 –> 00:20:33.099
Corinne (she/her): The shit does not work. If it did, they’d all have better track records.

00:20:34.160 –> 00:20:35.479
Corinne (she/her): every one of them.

00:20:36.830 –> 00:20:39.749
Corinne (she/her): And this is the thing I watch people all the time

00:20:39.990 –> 00:20:59.260
Corinne (she/her): do all kinds of diets that do not help you feel better about yourself. think better safer thoughts around food, teach you how to take authority over your life versus always feel like it’s the effect of everything when they’re not teaching that you lose weight

00:20:59.440 –> 00:21:01.630
Corinne (she/her): and you fear you’ll gain it back.

00:21:01.790 –> 00:21:19.769
Corinne (she/her): You’re afraid to be. You’re afraid to reintroduce food. You’re worried when the other shoe will drop. Every little pound that moves on the scale freaks you out. No one wants to lose weight, to live in a paranoid state, and yet the diet industry, when they fail to teach us about our mindset, guess what they do.

00:21:19.920 –> 00:21:22.299
Corinne (she/her): They set us up to lose our way.

00:21:22.670 –> 00:21:30.080
Corinne (she/her): We may like the way we look. We may be proud that we’ve lost weight, but we’re paranoid is fuck around everything.

00:21:30.160 –> 00:21:41.569
Corinne (she/her): They didn’t help us change how we think you deserve to feel amazing. You deserve to feel good, and you deserve to feel confident

00:21:42.290 –> 00:21:54.130
Corinne (she/her): about being able to keep your weight off when you lose it. It’s not enough to just like the pants. It’s not enough to just be proud that you’re that you ask Shrunk.

00:21:56.160 –> 00:22:01.169
Corinne (she/her): We want to lose weight in a way that when it comes off we feel confident

00:22:01.360 –> 00:22:03.079
Corinne (she/her): that we will keep it off.

00:22:03.990 –> 00:22:09.749
Corinne (she/her): Okay, so let’s go back to the weekends. I kind of get enough on the tangents here, because I really feel like mindset is key

00:22:10.490 –> 00:22:20.709
Corinne (she/her): the third. So first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to think about Monday morning, us. The second thing we’re going to do is we’re going to think about, what do I need to do to make this ship happen this weekend.

00:22:20.780 –> 00:22:26.519
Corinne (she/her): The third thing that we’re gonna do is anything that we think

00:22:27.090 –> 00:22:30.580
Corinne (she/her): I can’t do is impossible

00:22:30.890 –> 00:22:32.570
Corinne (she/her): is too hard.

00:22:33.310 –> 00:22:37.530
Corinne (she/her): I want you to do this. I want you to ask yourself.

00:22:38.030 –> 00:22:40.160
Corinne (she/her): is it really true.

00:22:41.200 –> 00:22:56.299
Corinne (she/her): like, I want you to argue with yourself as to why some of your automatic thoughts about why things, what you can’t do, what will be hard. All this I want you to argue like you are in a court of law, and you’re the opposing lawyer.

00:22:56.710 –> 00:22:59.219
Corinne (she/her): and I want you to argue for the alternate.

00:22:59.660 –> 00:23:05.380
Corinne (she/her): It doesn’t mean you’re going to believe it, but we have to get used to thinking

00:23:05.760 –> 00:23:06.850
Corinne (she/her): about

00:23:06.900 –> 00:23:17.890
Corinne (she/her): why we can’t do things. We have to train our brain that there’s a whole another way to tell the story. Whether or not you believe it. Whether or not you act on it or not is irrelevant.

00:23:18.210 –> 00:23:24.430
Corinne (she/her): What truly matters is showing your brain. I’ve got my petty party.

00:23:25.240 –> 00:23:30.080
Corinne (she/her): and I got my success story over here. Both are true.

00:23:31.830 –> 00:23:38.569
Corinne (she/her): Which one do I want to go? With which one do I want to show up with. That’s what really matters.

00:23:38.660 –> 00:23:47.080
Corinne (she/her): Then the last thing that I want you to do is I want you to look at like your weekend, and I just want you to make some plans.

00:23:47.890 –> 00:23:55.599
Corinne (she/her): I want you to plan out what you’re going to eat, where you’re going to go, who you’re going to be with. But I don’t want you to just plan the food.

00:23:55.870 –> 00:24:13.349
Corinne (she/her): I want you to think a little bit beyond the food so many of us. We’re just planning the weekend based on all of the party, all of the like things we’re gonna do. And then we say like, Oh, so there’s no way I could follow up who plan this. I’m just gonna try to do good this weekend, and that’s my plan.

00:24:13.840 –> 00:24:19.380
Corinne (she/her): I always call it snorting opium. So I hope you’m is a really hard way to lose weight.

00:24:20.600 –> 00:24:25.660
Corinne (she/her): The other side of it is, we try to overly plan, and we don’t put any fun in there. We don’t do anything.

00:24:26.260 –> 00:24:33.809
Corinne (she/her): We cut out our social circle. So all I want you to do is I want you to plan the weekend, and I want you to plan it from a couple of different angles.

00:24:34.100 –> 00:24:40.569
Corinne (she/her): These are the things I’m going to eat, and I want you to make sure that you have something on there that’s fucking fine

00:24:41.450 –> 00:24:48.080
Corinne (she/her): like that you enjoy. I want you to do that for yourself. Then

00:24:48.570 –> 00:24:59.330
Corinne (she/her): I want you to plan. What is else is going to be fun this weekend besides the food. So if you’re going out to eat, or you’re going to a party, or you’re doing anything like that.

00:24:59.810 –> 00:25:08.399
Corinne (she/her): what other things am I putting on my schedule on the weekends that satisfy my truest needs?

00:25:09.120 –> 00:25:23.740
Corinne (she/her): And you just ask yourself, like, what is it that I most want out of the weekend. Most of us are going in the weekend because we want to relax. We want to have fun. We want to relax. We just want to take it easy. There’s all kinds of reasons. We go into the weekend.

00:25:24.130 –> 00:25:28.470
Corinne (she/her): and unfortunately, what we do is we associate all that with the food.

00:25:28.720 –> 00:25:43.240
Corinne (she/her): I want you to plan your weekend beyond just the food I want you to think about. Am I including some of the things I most need that I most want out of this weekend. How am I getting that without food?

00:25:45.250 –> 00:25:50.600
Corinne (she/her): That is one of the surefire ways to make sure that your weekends start changing for the better.

00:25:50.970 –> 00:25:57.470
Corinne (she/her): So we are going to think about Monday morning us before we go into the weekend.

00:25:57.670 –> 00:26:06.330
Corinne (she/her): Then we’re going to figure out. How did she get there? What did she say? Yes, to what did she say? No, to what was she thinking and feeling?

00:26:06.810 –> 00:26:17.750
Corinne (she/her): What are all the positives I can really want you to think about all the little decisions that you can make. Number 3. We’re gonna ask ourselves about the truth of the weekend.

00:26:18.700 –> 00:26:31.289
Corinne (she/her): like the things that we tell ourselves that we can’t do that are hard for us and stuff. I want you to really argue the other side of the story. Why is this not so hard? What could I be making easier?

00:26:33.080 –> 00:26:38.060
Corinne (she/her): Why can I be more successful? This weekend? What’s working in my favor?

00:26:40.050 –> 00:26:48.370
Corinne (she/her): I want you to do that work, and then the last thing is is, I want you to have more than just like food plans for the weekend. I want you to think about.

00:26:48.460 –> 00:26:52.879
Corinne (she/her): What is it at most one out of the weekends? I most want to feel? What things

00:26:54.210 –> 00:26:59.360
Corinne (she/her): and am I, including those things in my weekend

00:26:59.630 –> 00:27:12.990
Corinne (she/her): outside of food. If not, I should probably start there rather than working so hard on trying to figure out how I’m going to get all these feelings from food should probably work really hard on figuring out how I’m going to get these feelings from my life.

00:27:14.740 –> 00:27:15.610
Corinne (she/her): Alright.

00:27:15.730 –> 00:27:26.639
Corinne (she/her): let’s do some questions. If you have any questions you can pop them over into the Q. A. Right now and then. One of the things it looks like someone was saying.

00:27:26.670 –> 00:27:47.090
Corinne (she/her): She’s not saying you can’t have a medical condition, she is saying. Don’t let it run your life. Stop living with it uses exactly. Y’all. I coach women. She’s also saying to stop feeling sorry for yourself if you’re on a restricted diet. No one is on a restricted diet for medical reasons. I love Jane, that you’re helping pull some of these points out. But let me just say this.

00:27:47.230 –> 00:27:51.730
Corinne (she/her): a lot of people think that when so right now, I’m working with someone.

00:27:51.970 –> 00:28:14.739
Corinne (she/her): one of my members every every so often we. We give away prizes in my membership all the time. So if you complete certain challenges and stuff you get enterprises. So one of my members she won a month of private coaching with me, and we’ve been working back. She’s got my text number. We do a phone call each week, and she has had diabetes.

00:28:15.400 –> 00:28:19.769
Corinne (she/her): And so we’ve been working on her mindset around food

00:28:19.970 –> 00:28:45.169
Corinne (she/her): because she is following like she is following a food plan that’s helping her get off her diabetes. Meds that’s helping her like reverse it. She also has So another condition I don’t want to like. Say, all of her stuff. She wouldn’t mind me sharing the diabetes, but the rest of it. That’s her business, and I’m not going to put it out there. But I will say this. She has another condition, and we’ve been working on her mindset around that.

00:28:45.800 –> 00:28:48.069
Corinne (she/her): It would be really easy

00:28:49.450 –> 00:28:51.700
Corinne (she/her): for someone with cancer.

00:28:51.870 –> 00:29:02.199
Corinne (she/her): someone with diabetes, someone with Celia to talk about being on a very restricted diet because of a medical diagnosis

00:29:02.760 –> 00:29:04.409
Corinne (she/her): so medium to be like

00:29:04.470 –> 00:29:08.340
Corinne (she/her): God’s honest truth right? There. That’s the way it’s supposed to be described

00:29:09.040 –> 00:29:20.619
Corinne (she/her): just because you can Google something, or just because a doctor said it was a restrictive dye, or whatever doesn’t mean that it’s a useful way for you to think about it for yourself

00:29:20.930 –> 00:29:25.090
so often. What happens is that people will say like when they hear that

00:29:25.250 –> 00:29:28.550
Corinne (she/her): they automatically feel restricted.

00:29:28.770 –> 00:29:33.730
Corinne (she/her): They feel like things are unfair. They feel like they can’t live their life.

00:29:35.030 –> 00:29:39.609
Corinne (she/her): and that is not true. Here is another way to think about it.

00:29:40.980 –> 00:29:45.380
Corinne (she/her): I’m going to eat these foods because I value my life.

00:29:46.570 –> 00:29:52.770
Corinne (she/her): I’m learning to eat these foods and learning how to be at peace without other ones.

00:29:52.810 –> 00:29:55.040
Corinne (she/her): because my life is so valuable.

00:29:57.250 –> 00:30:08.900
Corinne (she/her): I’m learning how to let go of some foods and embrace others. because my health matters to me.

00:30:10.970 –> 00:30:19.590
Corinne (she/her): I will all be to sit there and think about that that want to argue with me about thinking like shit about a diet that you might have to do.

00:30:20.430 –> 00:30:27.859
Corinne (she/her): I do have tons of clients that need to follow certain diets

00:30:27.930 –> 00:30:32.580
Corinne (she/her): in order to not just lose weight, but because their health

00:30:32.950 –> 00:30:34.380
Corinne (she/her): matters

00:30:37.230 –> 00:30:42.199
Corinne (she/her): if you like. I have my sister in law. Her mother has celiac disease.

00:30:42.690 –> 00:30:45.460
Corinne (she/her): and it is very painful

00:30:45.590 –> 00:30:47.380
Corinne (she/her): to eat any kind of glue

00:30:47.440 –> 00:30:51.820
Corinne (she/her): like hospitalization time. Her body has a visceral reaction to it.

00:30:52.920 –> 00:30:59.020
Corinne (she/her): She does not sit around and think about being restricted, and how unfair it is that she can’t have cake

00:31:00.070 –> 00:31:11.560
Corinne (she/her): since day. One she flipped on a dime, she almost died. They I almost gave up on her, and this was years ago, before C. Lack was a big thing until they figured out what was going on.

00:31:12.410 –> 00:31:19.420
Corinne (she/her): and the moment they told her that if she got rid of gluten completely in her diet

00:31:20.160 –> 00:31:23.000
Corinne (she/her): that she could live another 30, 40 years.

00:31:23.390 –> 00:31:36.869
Corinne (she/her): That was her new thought. She never once was like, I’m so restricted. I’ve got a diagnosis. So I’m gonna have like it’s unfair. Everybody else gets to eat. She did not do that to herself. She chose to be grateful

00:31:37.380 –> 00:31:42.180
Corinne (she/her): that she had something that she could do to extend her life.

00:31:42.700 –> 00:31:46.280
Corinne (she/her): This is like that is not easy work.

00:31:47.280 –> 00:31:51.960
Corinne (she/her): but I will tell you it’s the work of our lifetime.

00:31:52.360 –> 00:31:57.540
Corinne (she/her): Wouldn’t you rather sit around and learn how to feel grateful

00:31:57.830 –> 00:32:02.899
Corinne (she/her): that there are things you can do for your help? Then to sit around and think about how unfair it is

00:32:03.220 –> 00:32:07.219
Corinne (she/her): that you can’t eat certain foods, how shitty your disease is.

00:32:07.290 –> 00:32:11.380
I’m not saying we’re not going to feel bad about it. It’s normal to feel bad about it.

00:32:11.900 –> 00:32:17.769
Corinne (she/her): but when all you do is feel bad about it when it consumes you.

00:32:17.960 –> 00:32:28.700
Corinne (she/her): it’s time to start working on having a different mindset for your say. None of us are going to feel any better with your nonsense, but you deserve to feel better.

00:32:29.220 –> 00:32:38.390
Corinne (she/her): You deserve a better lie. And these are the important conversations that the dive industry is not having with us. Alright.

00:32:39.250 –> 00:33:03.069
Corinne (she/her): I’ve been listening to the podcast for about a year, and I love it. I’ve never been on any kind of a specific diet. I retired early, finding myself board and eating too much and gaining weight after listening to the podcast I lost 23 pounds until my 24 year old. Son was diagnosed with cancer. And I’m starting to go back up. Sadness has made me turn to food.

00:33:04.310 –> 00:33:13.400
Corinne (she/her): What has happened is as of right now. You don’t have any other way to deal with your sadness other than to eat.

00:33:13.490 –> 00:33:25.250
Corinne (she/her): It’s not making you do it. This is, I just want you to think about the difference between this thinking. Sharon is sadness is making me turn to food boredom made me turn to food.

00:33:26.200 –> 00:33:36.500
Corinne (she/her): No feeling can make you turn to food. Some of us have feelings that the only way we currently know how to deal with them is by eating.

00:33:37.890 –> 00:33:45.779
Corinne (she/her): No one has told us new ways to deal with our sadness. No one has helped us process what’s going on for us.

00:33:45.980 –> 00:33:54.439
Corinne (she/her): We’re so afraid like we. Usually it’s underneath sadness. If there’s eating like in this case, it’s probably fear that he will die.

00:33:54.570 –> 00:34:00.380
Corinne (she/her): So it’s a lot easier to eat than it is to sit and think about

00:34:01.280 –> 00:34:02.900
Corinne (she/her): like. What if he does?

00:34:04.630 –> 00:34:06.060
Corinne (she/her): What if he doesn’t?

00:34:08.770 –> 00:34:15.219
Corinne (she/her): I think it’s normal, and this is the other thing a lot of times when we have feelings. This is hopefully, this will help you.

00:34:15.250 –> 00:34:24.350
Corinne (she/her): One of the reasons why so many of us end up eating when we’re sad. It’s because we judge ourselves for being said. We’ll say things like, I shouldn’t be sad

00:34:25.550 –> 00:34:34.300
Corinne (she/her): like, you know. I should be grateful. He’s here. If you’re doing that, if any of you are doing, I I shouldn’t feel this way. I should be this way.

00:34:34.440 –> 00:34:46.830
Corinne (she/her): That’s always going to feel terrible. That’s like all right. Not only do I already feel sad, but now I’m judging myself, and I’m being an as to myself, it’s like I’m admonishing myself for having

00:34:46.980 –> 00:34:48.650
Corinne (she/her): normal feelings.

00:34:49.639 –> 00:34:55.920
Corinne (she/her): The other thing that we do is like. When sadness comes in we will say things like I don’t know how to deal with it.

00:34:56.219 –> 00:35:02.999
Corinne (she/her): I don’t want to feel this way. and this is what I always wanted to say to you a lot of times when we’re sad.

00:35:04.460 –> 00:35:19.189
Corinne (she/her): and this is what we do a lot more of inside the membership. And, Sharon, if you’re one of our members, I would invite you to at least listen to module 2, and then you may want to also take the relationships course, because right now it’s probably a really good time for you to do the relationships. Course

00:35:19.200 –> 00:35:25.360
Corinne (she/her): for the relationship with your side. It will help you see things in a new light. So

00:35:25.960 –> 00:35:29.359
Corinne (she/her): when we think I don’t want to feel this.

00:35:29.740 –> 00:35:33.880
Corinne (she/her): I just like Sharon. I want you to ask yourself because you I want you to say

00:35:34.010 –> 00:35:42.660
Corinne (she/her): I wouldn’t mind feeling sad if I knew how right now. I really don’t know how. The moment I start feeling sad I go and eat.

00:35:43.610 –> 00:35:50.169
Corinne (she/her): There’s something about the sadness that I think is wrong, or I can’t handle or I can’t tolerate.

00:35:50.730 –> 00:36:02.159
Corinne (she/her): and almost always that is not true. If you start feeling sad for your son, and you were to start crying. I have a feeling. Eventually you’d quit crying.

00:36:02.450 –> 00:36:07.199
Corinne (she/her): You feel some relief. You’d feel some compassion for yourself.

00:36:07.960 –> 00:36:10.410
Corinne (she/her): and then you would probably talk to your sign.

00:36:12.120 –> 00:36:17.459
Corinne (she/her): The one of the big things about feelings is a lot of times we think they’re never going to end

00:36:18.620 –> 00:36:20.949
Corinne (she/her): for the unless you have

00:36:21.550 –> 00:36:30.590
Corinne (she/her): a diagnosed like issue with depression and stuff. I’m not talking about people who are clinically in pain right now.

00:36:31.640 –> 00:36:38.719
Corinne (she/her): The vast majority of us have just never been taught that feelings are normal that it’s okay to feel sad.

00:36:38.990 –> 00:36:46.080
Corinne (she/her): If my son was diagnosed with cancer, my son just has autism. and I still feel sad sometimes.

00:36:47.550 –> 00:36:49.870
Corinne (she/her): And I just tell myself that’s normal.

00:36:50.930 –> 00:36:53.620
Corinne (she/her): Mothers feel sad about stuff like that.

00:36:54.350 –> 00:36:57.820
Corinne (she/her): Instead of saying, I don’t want to be sad.

00:36:58.310 –> 00:37:00.689
Corinne (she/her): I tell myself it is normal.

00:37:00.800 –> 00:37:05.349
Corinne (she/her): This is just one of those times where you’re sad, and it’s okay.

00:37:05.820 –> 00:37:12.890
Corinne (she/her): Then I feel relief that I’m not judging myself. Then I feel compassion for me as a mother.

00:37:14.500 –> 00:37:30.610
Corinne (she/her): When we do that part we don’t need to eat a lot of times when we’re eating through some of our emotion jaw it has more to do with. We’re thinking we shouldn’t feel this way. I don’t want to feel this way. I can’t tolerate feeling this way, and I just want to tell all of you

00:37:32.310 –> 00:37:34.169
Corinne (she/her): feeling your feelings.

00:37:34.670 –> 00:37:39.330
Corinne (she/her): It’s not nearly as scary as spending the rest of your life running from them.

00:37:41.980 –> 00:37:47.749
Corinne (she/her): So many of us are trading, spending our entire life. never getting what we want.

00:37:48.750 –> 00:37:51.279
Corinne (she/her): always feeling bad about ourselves.

00:37:52.630 –> 00:38:02.680
Corinne (she/her): running from our emotions. regretting because we ate over them. We spend our entire life doing that when all we really needed was like a fucking good cry in the bed.

00:38:06.150 –> 00:38:09.170
Corinne (she/her): Alright, somebody said,

00:38:09.760 –> 00:38:18.380
Corinne (she/her): How can I sit in discomfort? So this term gets thrown around a lot times you gotta sit in the discomfort.

00:38:18.420 –> 00:38:23.770
Yo, I’m just gonna tell you. I rarely tell anybody to sit in discomfort anymore. Because guess what?

00:38:24.060 –> 00:38:30.360
Corinne (she/her): Even the worst sitting discomfort feels like. Shit anybody. Everybody is like, why would I want to do that?

00:38:30.620 –> 00:38:35.760
Corinne (she/her): Here’s what I usually tell people. I want you to figure out why you’re uncomfortable.

00:38:37.940 –> 00:39:07.349
Corinne (she/her): So many of us don’t need to sit in discomfort, you know. We need to be doing. We don’t even. We don’t understand why we’re in discomfort to begin with, and 80 of the reason why we’re sitting there has to do with I’m judging myself, I’m being an. As to myself, I’m sitting there judging everybody else. I’m wishing for things. I’m regretting my past. re like I’m worrying. So many of us are like.

00:39:07.350 –> 00:39:09.480
Corinne (she/her): Teach me how to do all that.

00:39:09.760 –> 00:39:10.620

00:39:10.960 –> 00:39:16.889
Corinne (she/her): here’s what I want to do. I want to make sure that whatever discomfort you’re having is legit first.

00:39:18.840 –> 00:39:22.670
Some of us have so much illegitimate discomfort. It’s unreal, and we’re like

00:39:22.780 –> 00:39:26.250
Corinne (she/her): being told by people to sit in it.

00:39:26.640 –> 00:39:32.159
Corinne (she/her): I don’t think you want to sit in it. Here’s what I think you want to do. You want to investigate your discomfort?

00:39:32.960 –> 00:39:42.879
Corinne (she/her): Why am I uncomfortable right now? What’s wrong, honey? What’s going on. And it’s usually like, just let your brain say whatever it is. And then it’s like, Okay.

00:39:43.690 –> 00:39:45.799
Corinne (she/her): and what is my opinion about that?

00:39:46.390 –> 00:39:51.580
Corinne (she/her): Because it’s our. It’s the way we think that’s causing so much of our discomfort.

00:39:51.920 –> 00:39:54.160
Corinne (she/her): It’s not actual themes.

00:39:54.520 –> 00:40:01.390
Corinne (she/her): just like, let’s take the restricted diet. If let’s say you get diagnosed with diabetes.

00:40:01.780 –> 00:40:14.299
Corinne (she/her): and you’re told you got to cut all the sugar out like your diabetes is a runaway freight train right now, and if you eat a you eat one more gram of sugar. your your insulin is going to explode

00:40:14.550 –> 00:40:22.450
Corinne (she/her): whatever. So a lot of you are like. Well, I’m going to sit through the discomfort

00:40:23.230 –> 00:40:30.029
Corinne (she/her): because you’re sitting there and you’re thinking, this is unfair. This sucks. I did this to my cell.

00:40:30.240 –> 00:40:32.969
Corinne (she/her): I should need like a asshole all those years.

00:40:33.360 –> 00:40:35.820
Not what you sitting in that discomfort.

00:40:36.950 –> 00:40:44.780
Corinne (she/her): the discomfort not coming from not having sugar. The discomfort is coming from. How you’re talking about not having that sugar.

00:40:47.170 –> 00:40:51.290
Corinne (she/her): There’s that’s elevated. Discover. That’s just brutal.

00:40:51.700 –> 00:40:58.519
Corinne (she/her): What I want you to do is I want you to tell a whole new story so that all you’re doing is now is working on not having sugar.

00:41:00.900 –> 00:41:01.870
Corinne (she/her): That’s it.

00:41:03.220 –> 00:41:11.880
Corinne (she/her): Now, if you follow me, you know I don’t. I do not teach my members to give up sugar at all. I want you eating all the food unless

00:41:12.320 –> 00:41:17.149
Corinne (she/her): you have a medical reason where eating all the food. It’s not going to work for you.

00:41:18.180 –> 00:41:26.550
Corinne (she/her): and that you are more interested in like. Here’s what I got to do, Korean. I gotta make peace that I’m going to live a long time.

00:41:28.750 –> 00:41:32.350
I need to make peace with myself, that my life is more valuable.

00:41:32.660 –> 00:41:34.930
Corinne (she/her): Then what I’m putting in my mouth right now

00:41:36.050 –> 00:41:46.109
Corinne (she/her): I need to make peace with the idea that it’s this is not unfair. There is a solution staring me in the face. What would be unfair if someone told me. There’s nothing we can do about it.

00:41:46.380 –> 00:41:53.270
Corinne (she/her): your lost cause, and you’re dying. In 3 days that would feel I would be like girlfriend and a fair all day long.

00:41:53.620 –> 00:41:56.390
Corinne (she/her): Short of that. it’s not unfair.

00:41:57.280 –> 00:42:02.759
Corinne (she/her): There’s called a solution for you. That’s more than fair. That’s amazing.

00:42:03.850 –> 00:42:07.310
Corinne (she/her): So we have to think differently. Alright.

00:42:09.490 –> 00:42:19.620
Corinne (she/her): Why do I eat in secret? Always find myself sneaking food, and my husband is around, and they complain that I can’t lose weight when we eat in secret. It’s usually because at some point in our life

00:42:21.010 –> 00:42:25.319
Corinne (she/her): we have been taught that there are certain foods that are good and certain foods that are bad.

00:42:25.680 –> 00:42:34.090
Corinne (she/her): And so what we end up doing is if we’re going to eat bad foods, who would want to eat bad foods in front of other people.

00:42:35.590 –> 00:42:39.450
Corinne (she/her): anything that you are ashamed of, you will do in secret.

00:42:39.810 –> 00:42:54.159
Corinne (she/her): So if you think eating certain foods is bad, you’re gonna want to eat them in secret, you’re not gonna want to eat them in front of people. This is why it’s so important that somebody who join my program because we teach you how to unlearn that stupid fuckery.

00:42:56.690 –> 00:43:07.979
Corinne (she/her): We have been taught by the diet industry for years. It’s like we. We were just joking around the other day. I was talking to somebody about like I did la weight loss back in the day.

00:43:08.040 –> 00:43:25.140
Corinne (she/her): They had, like, you know, the approved foods that you could have, and then you could have the bars, and then I went through the like you could. I went through a face where we did all the low, fat stuff. I remember going to the salad bar and my mom saying, Don’t get eggs. They’re just loaded with fat

00:43:25.240 –> 00:43:26.430
Corinne (she/her): eggs.

00:43:26.990 –> 00:43:36.429
Corinne (she/her): They made eggs that now I could put as much sugar-free jello, and sugar-free dressing on stuff as I wanted. I could eat snack well, cookies.

00:43:36.950 –> 00:43:46.650
Corinne (she/her): anything that was 0 fat, fat free. You could have that but a fucking egg. Yeah, that’s why I was so overweight. I had an egg problem.

00:43:47.110 –> 00:43:50.550
Corinne (she/her): said no one ever. So

00:43:52.550 –> 00:43:56.310
Corinne (she/her): what we want to do is we want to unwind.

00:43:56.880 –> 00:44:11.799
Corinne (she/her): like our mental constructs around good food, bad food, because if you have assignments to food that this is good, this is bad. This is clean. This is dirty. I just want you to look at how pervasive

00:44:12.330 –> 00:44:18.740
Corinne (she/her): morality like who we are as a person is tied into food.

00:44:20.150 –> 00:44:25.380
Corinne (she/her): None of you are going to hell because of your food logs.

00:44:26.120 –> 00:44:28.750
Corinne (she/her): The last time I checked in the Bible

00:44:28.980 –> 00:44:39.869
Corinne (she/her): we gonna go to the pearly gates and they’re gonna be like. Please turn over your food logs for the last, you know, for your entire life. I want to see did you eat more good foods or bad foods.

00:44:40.000 –> 00:44:49.990
Corinne (she/her): That is not the indicator of the quality of your soul just saying so. We have to quit doing this to ourselves.

00:44:50.210 –> 00:44:54.530
Corinne (she/her): because the problem becomes every decade

00:44:54.720 –> 00:45:11.210
Corinne (she/her): a new fabulous diet comes out that tells you what’s good and what’s bad, what’s clean and what’s dirty? What’s healthy? And what’s junky ever noticed that certain foods are demonized.

00:45:12.530 –> 00:45:27.029
Corinne (she/her): So you got Keto what you know now we are, you know you go high protein, high fat. We had our low, fat days. Now it’s all like vegan vegetarian now, like meat’s bad. It’s like, Oh, my God!

00:45:27.810 –> 00:45:29.640
Corinne (she/her): If you follow

00:45:30.080 –> 00:45:39.570
Corinne (she/her): diet books over the years you’re stocked in the head. and we gotta unwind all of those rules, because at the end of the day

00:45:39.620 –> 00:45:41.839
Corinne (she/her): this is not why we’re overweight.

00:45:43.010 –> 00:45:53.989
Corinne (she/her): I promise all of you the reason why weight is a problem, for I would say 99% of my members. It is I eat when I’m stressed.

00:45:54.040 –> 00:45:56.380
Corinne (she/her): because I don’t know how to deal with stress.

00:45:57.720 –> 00:46:01.270
Corinne (she/her): I eat when I feel like things are unfair.

00:46:01.320 –> 00:46:09.969
Corinne (she/her): because I don’t know how to set boundaries. I don’t know how to tell people. No, I feel like I’m going to be a bitch I eat at night.

00:46:10.210 –> 00:46:18.649
Corinne (she/her): because if I take a break after working all day on top of taking care of kids and stuff, and the second everybody goes to bed.

00:46:18.990 –> 00:46:22.439
Corinne (she/her): I don’t know how to relax without feeling guilty.

00:46:23.440 –> 00:46:29.719
Corinne (she/her): so I’m going to eat, so I don’t have to feel guilty, so I can relax. It’s the only way. I know how

00:46:32.330 –> 00:46:36.370
Corinne (she/her): we’re overweight because of the reasons why we’re eating

00:46:36.450 –> 00:46:47.939
Corinne (she/her): the choices that we’re making. All of them have reasons. And when we uncover the reasons, and we untangle all of it, and we learn how to think differently around all of it. Guess what we do.

00:46:48.360 –> 00:47:01.170
Corinne (she/her): We end up taking away the need to overeat if you want to, and this is my thing. I tell you all the time. If you want to eat salads and stuff, I want you eating those types of foods.

00:47:02.300 –> 00:47:08.450
Corinne (she/her): I want you learning how to include more of those foods, but not because they’re better.

00:47:08.650 –> 00:47:11.269
Corinne (she/her): or they make you a better person.

00:47:11.560 –> 00:47:35.130
Corinne (she/her): but because you’re spending so much time figuring out the kind of life you want for yourself how long you’d like to live the top of poops you want to have the How much heartburn you’re willing to deal with in your sixties and seventies when you go to bed, the types of achy joints you won’t. As you get older. There’s a thousand reasons to construct your food the way you do other than

00:47:35.190 –> 00:47:38.450
Corinne (she/her): it’s good or bad. It’ll help me lose weight, or it won’t.

00:47:39.490 –> 00:47:47.579
Corinne (she/her): We have to think bigger and better when it comes to weight loss. That is why I do what I do.

00:47:47.620 –> 00:48:03.080
Corinne (she/her): I want to be at least the one voice out there that is saying there is a better way. There is a way that we can lose our way, and we can like ourselves. We can change everything, and we don’t have to feel restricted. We don’t have to feel punished.

00:48:03.770 –> 00:48:12.429
Corinne (she/her): I just don’t want anyone losing their weight ever again. And at the end of the day they’re like, I am a smaller version of the people pleaser

00:48:12.920 –> 00:48:18.120
Corinne (she/her): the warrior. the person who in fears foods.

00:48:18.790 –> 00:48:23.030
Corinne (she/her): who doesn’t trust themselves around certain things.

00:48:23.660 –> 00:48:31.749
Corinne (she/her): I don’t want you to be a smaller version of that person. I promise all of you. It sucks. I did it so many times

00:48:32.340 –> 00:48:41.910
Corinne (she/her): until the last time I lost weight, and that’s why I decided to help people, because the last time I lost weight, here’s what I figured out was the first time I lost weight, and I liked me.

00:48:43.050 –> 00:48:45.099
Corinne (she/her): I wasn’t afraid of foods.

00:48:45.560 –> 00:48:50.589
Corinne (she/her): I felt confident that for the first time in my life I knew how to live it.

00:48:51.390 –> 00:48:53.090
Corinne (she/her): I knew how to love my life

00:48:54.920 –> 00:49:05.380
Corinne (she/her): I had bigger reasons. I had bigger, wise behind why I wanted to take care of myself other than just small pants. What society says I need to do to myself.

00:49:08.090 –> 00:49:09.780
Corinne (she/her): All right, let’s see what else

00:49:10.630 –> 00:49:16.839
Corinne (she/her): you mentioned. Not count calories and macros, but we still need a balance of protein, etc. Correct.

00:49:18.210 –> 00:49:25.949
Corinne (she/her): I mean, yeah. But I will just tell you. Most of you all are wanting to worry about that shit and not worry about why you’re eating. In the first place.

00:49:26.150 –> 00:49:33.400
Corinne (she/her): I like I will tell you right now. When I lost my way I didn’t count the calorie. I didn’t count a macro. I didn’t do that stuff, you know. Why.

00:49:34.900 –> 00:49:45.190
Corinne (she/her): I did not need to know how many proteins I was eating in a day. What I really need to know was, why was I ending the day feeling like ice cream was the only way to feel better.

00:49:46.660 –> 00:49:49.919
Corinne (she/her): I need to figure out. Why is it when I go out to eat.

00:49:50.950 –> 00:49:55.780
Corinne (she/her): I eat my face off as if it was the last time I was ever fucking. Going to the outback.

00:49:56.710 –> 00:50:09.320
Corinne (she/her): I need to figure out how I was going to start asking for help in my life when I was too ashamed. I I will tell you one of the reasons why I’d gotten all went to 250 again for the 100 time.

00:50:09.410 –> 00:50:12.730
Corinne (she/her): It’s because I’ve had a kid. He was a year old.

00:50:13.760 –> 00:50:14.800
Corinne (she/her): and it

00:50:14.930 –> 00:50:18.539
Corinne (she/her): I didn’t have a job first on my life that I wasn’t working.

00:50:18.570 –> 00:50:23.999
Corinne (she/her): I was taking care of my baby. and I had so much shame

00:50:24.240 –> 00:50:27.000
Corinne (she/her): around being exhausted.

00:50:27.190 –> 00:50:30.749
Corinne (she/her): It overwhelming me. me not loving it.

00:50:31.750 –> 00:50:45.199
Corinne (she/her): I didn’t want to have to ask for I just thought it was so unfair like I always said I don’t do anything all day. Then, when my husband would come home from work, I was so riddled with shame and guilt for asking him for hell that I ate.

00:50:45.580 –> 00:50:52.050
Corinne (she/her): I didn’t need to know anything about macros or proteins. not a lit. I didn’t need to know about my calories a lit.

00:50:52.240 –> 00:50:56.140
Corinne (she/her): I needed to know why I felt so ashamed to ask for help.

00:50:56.870 –> 00:51:05.920
Corinne (she/her): Why, I thought it was wrong to ask my husband, who loves me and my child to help me figure this out.

00:51:07.080 –> 00:51:08.469
Corinne (she/her): I needed to

00:51:08.500 –> 00:51:18.199
Corinne (she/her): be compassionate with myself that no, not every mother loves every moment of their baby’s life, especially the first year, the hard year

00:51:19.430 –> 00:51:26.630
Corinne (she/her): I was overwhelmed with change, but in my mind I should it. I should have been like everybody else I need to work on that

00:51:27.120 –> 00:51:31.209
Corinne (she/her): I did not need to work on macros. I did not need to work on protein.

00:51:31.350 –> 00:51:42.140
Corinne (she/her): and I promise most of you. There are so many emotional things you need to work on around your food that calories and macros and protein are the least of your worries.

00:51:42.630 –> 00:51:47.619
Corinne (she/her): And here’s how I know, because a lot of you keep trying to do that. You’re like

00:51:47.660 –> 00:51:56.720
Corinne (she/her): I’m going to hire. One more trainer is going to give me my perfect macros, and my whole life is going to be blah blah, blah! And guess what you get that plan.

00:51:56.770 –> 00:52:10.400
Corinne (she/her): and it’s great until the first day you have a bad day. The first time your boss acts like an asshole the first time your mother calls and says something that you don’t like. The first time your husband’s got to work late, or your wife.

00:52:11.040 –> 00:52:15.729
Corinne (she/her): It’s like I’m going to take a nap on the weekends when all you want to do

00:52:15.950 –> 00:52:18.040
Corinne (she/her): it’s taking that yourself.

00:52:18.170 –> 00:52:22.279
Corinne (she/her): but you feel too bad about asking her if you can take an app

00:52:23.350 –> 00:52:38.610
Corinne (she/her): like we need to clean all that up. You get all that done you. You get to where you are no longer triggered to eat, thinking your feelings make you eat. people make you eat when you get out of all of that. And you’re like.

00:52:39.000 –> 00:52:41.639
how are we good about doing the things I say I’m going to do?

00:52:41.710 –> 00:52:48.089
Corinne (she/her): Then, if you want to like worry about the proteins and the macros and everything you’re set up for that success.

00:52:49.150 –> 00:52:58.579
Corinne (she/her): Otherwise you’re just you’re saying I’m going to follow this external rule while not changing a damn thing internally to support it.

00:52:58.660 –> 00:53:00.319
Corinne (she/her): and those things don’t work

00:53:02.730 –> 00:53:13.959
Corinne (she/her): Does alcohol cause weight gain? Or is it what you eat when you drink? I drink whiskey and water, and I’m told that that is the main reason I don’t lose weight. So alcohol is treated by the body it like

00:53:14.860 –> 00:53:20.980
Corinne (she/her): somewhere between carbs. And, in fact, so the way that just process wise

00:53:21.160 –> 00:53:25.350
Corinne (she/her): the body. When alcohol comes in, it thinks of it as a poison.

00:53:25.970 –> 00:53:49.009
Corinne (she/her): It it is. I mean, it’s legit a poison to our body. Now I’m not saying I don’t drink or in drinks, so let’s just say that out loud. But to our body alcohol is not needed, so it throws 7 calories per gram every single time you drink, and it has no benefit to your body. 9.

00:53:49.220 –> 00:54:03.189
Corinne (she/her): So it’s just usually your body’s like I don’t know what to do with it, so I’ll just throw it into fat. Now, that does not mean that you can’t drink, but alcohol is one of those things where I always tell my people. If you’re going to drink and lose weight, you definitely need to plan it.

00:54:03.240 –> 00:54:12.590
Corinne (she/her): You also need to make sure that you’re not jackass eating because you are drinking one of the the first things that I clean up with my clients like. Plan your drinks.

00:54:12.600 –> 00:54:19.279
Corinne (she/her): But we got to clean up you eating like an asshole afterward, because when your inhibitions come down, guess what

00:54:19.420 –> 00:54:31.649
Corinne (she/her): your excuses to eat will sound sexy as fuck. It’ll be like a very white album playing in the background. It will be really hard, not you just want to like, take off that brawl. So we want to make sure

00:54:31.870 –> 00:54:43.280
Corinne (she/her): that we are. We develop the skill of being able to drink what we want to drink in the beginning and not eat. The second thing is figuring out. Do we really want to drink.

00:54:43.430 –> 00:54:49.990
Corinne (she/her): and how much so many of us? We’ll drink more than we need

00:54:51.190 –> 00:54:53.260
Corinne (she/her): to fit in

00:54:53.370 –> 00:54:59.450
Corinne (she/her): in order to have a good time in order to like all these things, to relax.

00:55:00.540 –> 00:55:09.860
Corinne (she/her): And I just like to play around with. And I’ve been working on this for years with myself. which is alcohol doesn’t make me fit in

00:55:11.240 –> 00:55:22.680
Corinne (she/her): alcohol, blunt. How I’m thinking that makes me think I’m not fitting in so wouldn’t it be better rather than drinking. To work on. My self-concept.

00:55:22.800 –> 00:55:26.009
Corinne (she/her): Alcohol doesn’t make me connect with my husband.

00:55:27.590 –> 00:55:40.959
Corinne (she/her): Alcohol shuts down any thoughts I’m having that allow that get me disconnected from my husband, so wouldn’t it be better if I worked on true, genuine feelings about him

00:55:41.580 –> 00:55:45.130
Corinne (she/her): then to keep drinking, saying, that’s how we connect.

00:55:46.300 –> 00:56:05.630
Corinne (she/her): So I just want you all to play with that. We have a program inside of no Bs for for drinking. And it’s not for alcohol. It was literally, it’s like ha mindful drinking and weight loss. How do you combine the 2? And we do periodically do calls around it to coach people, because my people, usually they’re like, I don’t want to give up drinking.

00:56:05.860 –> 00:56:15.979
Corinne (she/her): but I want to lose weight, and I’ve got to find the balance there, and it’s not just about like. Do you put sweet sweeteners in there or not? It’s more about

00:56:16.420 –> 00:56:26.930
Corinne (she/her): changing your relationship with alcohol to where you have it. But you don’t need it anymore, or and when I say, need I don’t mean need like an alcoholic. But you don’t need it

00:56:27.090 –> 00:56:31.510
Corinne (she/her): to unwant to have a good time to fit in.

00:56:32.950 –> 00:56:35.489
Corinne (she/her): you know, to go out those kinds of things.

00:56:35.770 –> 00:56:42.040
Corinne (she/her): All right. Let’s take Oh, we are! We are over time. Good Lord! I had my glasses also. Couldn’t say, All right.

00:56:42.510 –> 00:57:01.980

Corinne (she/her): I am ready to really tackle the stuff that will enhance my life.

00:57:08.320 –> 00:57:19.609
Corinne (she/her): I’m ready to tackle like I want to be be the person who doesn’t beat themselves up anymore. I want to be the person who learns how to not have to take all the foods out of her house. I want to be that person.
