Ep 61: 5 Steps to Getting Back on Track Fast
My son is learning to drive. It has been a slow and anxiety provoking process! Two weeks ago was a crazy ride. I let him drive to school and on that one trip he almost plowed the side of the house backing out of our driveway and then nearly backed into the garbage truck on the street.  As we were going along he failed to see the fire truck right behind us until it was blaring its horn at us and so in a frantic knee-jerk response he swerved to get out of the way, almost side-swiping 3 cars. To top it off he turned left into a line of oncoming cars almost getting me t-boned on the way--this was all within a 15-minute drive. He knew that was a bad trip. He got out of the car when we got to school and I --shaking like a leaf--hugged him goodbye for the day. He said, "Mom, I am sorry maybe I shouldn't drive anymore." And I said "No, you have to drive, that is the only way you are going to get better. You probably learned more today on our trip here than you will learn in school--don't quit, just learn the lessons you need to from what doesn't work and move on." Yesterday he drove us again to school--he backed up like a pro and the whole drive was so in control I even had time to look at my phone for a few moments. He was so pumped and I was so happy for him--he has mastered a new level of competency--how? By making mistakes and getting right back on track. Being consistent with weight release isn't about being perfect--it's a set of skills that we build and it's who we become over time. One of the most important skills for consistent weight release is the skill of getting back on track after going off track. So many people do not do this--they get caught up in being perfect and starting over. Did you do this when you learned to drive--no! You kept going...and learning and mastering driving. So, in episode 61 of our Thin Thinking Podcast, we will dive in and explore one of the most critical mental muscles in our weight mastery journey - working out for consistency and getting back on track the moment you get off. This 5-step process will help us to easily move back to our journey not feeling like a loser but still keeping motivated and self-loving to a successful weight mastery journey.   In This Episode, You’ll Also Learn… How using a different vocabulary in dealing and with getting off track will help us refocus to what is really important and to what needs to be doneThe importance of knowing and being mindful of our personal indicators when we get on track or off track and getting responsible for our own journeyRita’s effective S.H.I.F.T. steps to get back on track   Links Mentioned in the Episode: Sign up for my FREE video series: "The 3 Mental Shifts to End the Weight Struggle Once and for All"Sign up for the FREE HYPNOSIS DOWNLOAD : Shift Out of Sugar CravingsMy book, From Fat to Thin Thinking: Unlock Your Mind for Permanent Weight Loss (Includes a 30-day hypnosis process.)What would you love to hear about on the podcast?

Many people who smoke are very afraid of gaining weight when they stop. After working with smokers for 20 years, I happen to know that this doesn't need to be the case when your mind is in the right place.

Ep 55: Mentally Preparing for Weight Maintenance Now
Did you know that ideal weight maintenance is a mindset that you begin cultivating waaaaaaaay before you reach it? Say what? Yes, siree. Preparing for maintenance: knowing you will get there, being  confident that you can stay there, believing it is possible with all of your being is part of what helps you stay on your weight release trajectory. Otherwise, any attempt at weight loss is like getting on a road, not knowing where it leads, and not knowing what you are going to find when you get there. Chances are at some point you run out of gas or just lose focus and turn around. In episode 55 of our Thin Thinking Podcast, I share with you the steps to prepare your mind to step into maintenance like a master, because maintenance is a mindset more than anything else.

Ep 54: Is That “Health Food” as Slimming as You Think?
"I eat so healthfully...so why am I not losing weight?" I hear this all the time from prospective students and clients. Sugar-free. Fat-free. Gluten-free.

Yet for healthy options there are out there--why are we still struggling? In our Thin Thinking Podcast episode 54, we will explore the different health and weight loss buzzwords of the day and look at how these healthy regimes and foods can hypnotize our brains into believing that they can help with our weight management, but are actually creating bigger challenges.

Ep 49: Create Your Weight Release Milestone Visions
Do you have a powerful weight vision that is currently "pulling" you towards your long-term weight goals? So often our pain is pushing us to lose weight but without a vision as our guide we can get lost and quickly succumb and fall off track. Research shows that when people have a vision driven goal that is driving their weight loss they are  more successful in the long-run but also happier in the process. For our Thin Thinking Podcast episode 49, I will be diving into all the different types of visions that we use to keep our minds focused and motivated  to go on a daily, weekly, and long-term weight management basis. I will also be guiding you through these visions towards the end of the podcast.

Ep 48: How to Love, not Loathe, Yourself Down the Scale
Happy love month. Few days from now, it will be Valentine’s Day and we will be seeing a lot of social media posts that talk about relationships and maintaining love with other people. When it comes to the subject of love, we mostly hear about the kind of love that pertains to a feeling towards other people but what about loving yourself? Self love. Self respect. This is the starting point not the ending point of a long-term weight mastery journey. Often we begin losing weight out of self-loathing hoping that by losing weight we will "earn" our love and self-respect for ourselves. This rarely happens--true success starts from a place of belief in yourself. In episode 48 of our lovely Thin Thinking Podcast, I will be giving you some mental shifts on how to start loving yourself and not loathing yourself down the scale. Also, because of my love for you, I will be bringing back my free video series called "The 3 Mental Shifts to End the Weight Struggle Once and for All" which will only be available for the next two weeks. Register now and enjoy a lovely week with these wonderful mental shifts I personally made for you.    In This Episode, You’ll Also Learn… The difference between starting your weight loss journey in a place of self love and self trust rather than starting self-hate and distrustDifferent ways to start loving your body and its importance in your life and journeyHow does learning to say “NO” will help you in nurturing yourself and improving self love   Links Mentioned in the Episode: Sign up for my FREE video series:: "The 3 Mental Shifts to End the Weight Struggle Once and for All"Sign up for the FREE HYPNOSIS DOWNLOAD : Shift Out of Sugar CravingsMy book, From Fat to Thin Thinking: Unlock Your Mind for Permanent Weight Loss (Includes a 30-day hypnosis process.)What would you love to hear about on the podcast?
