[Love Life and Lose Weight] 47: Thought Leadership

In this episode, I discuss our internal human experience of how we think both spontaneously and intentionally, how I understand it and frame it as a weight loss coach for my clients, and how to accommodate it and shape it with the intention of helping you lose weight. 

Your habit brain is going to resist changing your habits around food. We want to expect that and accommodate it without making its resistance mean anything about what is possible for us. 

Ways to create thought leadership in your mind's eye: 

  1. Identify what area of your brain the thought is likely originating from – the manager brain or the primal brain. 
  2. Ascertain why it makes sense that you would think that. 
  3. Shape and direct any primal thinking by adding to, correcting, or rejecting the thought to provide thought leadership in my internal world. 
  4.  Do not expect impulsive negative, fearful, or resistant thinking from your primal brain to ever go away. 

Your coach's homework is to write about how you want to respond to negative primal thinking in the moment. Make your process easy so that it takes less than one minute to complete.

I’m an advanced certified weight and life coach who holds a master’s degree in education. I don’t just talk about weight loss; I work full-time as a coach. More than that, I live the lifestyle. My story is powerful proof that the diet industry is broken, and it can and will break you too, unless you are willing to leave it all behind you. We were sold a lie about weight loss that blames the dieter for a lack of self-control in a system that demonizes food as good or bad. That all can stop for you today, too.
