Episode 98: POSITIVE Weight Loss is a Thing - And I'm Doing It!

As someone who has struggled with her weight for most of her entire life (I joined weight watchers at 11 years old) I know what it feels like to have a completely dysfunctional relationship with food and with my body. After becoming a professional dieter, and losing and gaining weight like it was my job, I was done. Done beating myself up. Done starving. Done binging. Done putting the keys to my self-worth inside a pair of skinny jeans. I spent years reprogramming my brain and finding ways to accept myself for who I am and what I look like, regardless of what the number on the scale said. I immersed myself in the body positivity movement and it saved my sanity. I finally learned to love myself – fully. I felt better, like I could breathe again. But at the same time, I knew I wasn't my fully being my best self if I was overweight, and on the road to putting myself at risk for disease. Not to mention, not feeling entirely confident in my skin. Yes, I loved myself. But I didn't love my reflection because I knew, deep down, it wasn't me. Being 100% honest here. And then recently it hit me – you CAN be body positive. You CAN love your body. And STILL want it to be leaner, stronger, smaller, and healthier. You can love your body, and want to make it better. I had made “weight loss” a dirty term because I thought wanting to lose weight meant you didn’t love yourself. And that’s completely untrue. What a revelation. And we all know a good revelation leads to a revolution… In this episode, I'm sharing how I gained a completely NEW perspective on weight loss, and have already lost over 10 pounds in 3 weeks in the most positive, effortless way possible.

Episode 95: Birthday Reflections: How I'm Planning to Show Up Bolder Than Ever + Let Go of the Fear of JUDGMENT!

It's my birthday! As I enter my 38th year of life and my 10th year as a blogger-turned-coach-turned-author-turned self-empowered woman, I have a LOT on my mind. I've been thinking about how I want to continue showing up in the world. As a woman. As a business woman. As someone who has a lot of eyes on her, and a massive platform to express herself through and help women. I'm going to admit something: I sometimes edit myself. I sometimes hold back on saying things I really want to say because I don't want to offend people. Or ruffle feathers. Know what's interesting? I NEVER did this in the beginning of my career. Because nobody was really paying attention. And if they weren’t paying attention, they weren’t judging. And if I wasn’t being judged I felt safe. But as I've grown and become more of a public figure, I fell into the habit of biting my tongue. This isn't to say I haven't been real, but I've held back on expressing my thoughts at times because frankly, I just don't want to deal with people's reactions. I don't like negativity. But I just can't go on muting myself because someone may have a problem with something I do or say. I can't risk MY truth because of someone else's response to it. In this episode, I'm digging into why we should all be unapologetically ourselves, why that doesn't mean we're being "bitches", and why we need to take some of the pressure off others who we admire.

Episode 88: Women Supporting Women is Not Just a Holiday or a Hashtag: Are You LIVING Your Message and Practicing What You Preach?

Happy International Women's Day! You ladies know I preach about the importance of supporting women every single day. I write about it in my books, I coach my clients on it, and I discuss it in my girl gang, the Slay Baby Collective. It's not just an annual holiday for me; I talk about it in television segments, on the radio, and on this podcast every single week. It’s my passion and my life’s work. On social media, one of the ways to promote this message and connect with other like-minded women is to use hashtags like #girlpower, #womenempoweringwomen, and #endgirlhate, to name a few. If you’ve searched these tags, you’ve probably seen more and more accounts popping up lately with the same message. And it’s not just Instagram that’s making girl power so cool lately. Pins, patches, and tee shirts available at major retailers like Nordstrom and Bloomingdales with cutesy terms like “Girl Gang” are popping up everywhere. But the question is, are women really practicing what they post, and wear? And will they practice it beyond a few months of pretty quotes on social media and a sweatshirt from Wildfox? I ask this, not because I’m doubtful. If anything, I’m hopeful. I think it’s wonderful that women are seeing the importance of getting behind each other. But I want to encourage all of us to check in with ourselves and make sure we’re taking these terms and applying them to our lives and our careers.
