Questioning the Story
April 30, 2013
The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.
to lose weight, most people lose motivation after a couple of
weeks or months. Then they either stop altogether or they begin
to engage in self-sabotage and backslide to their old ways. This
can be very discouraging but the good news is that it
doesn't have to be this way. If we understand what gets in the
way of our motivation, we will be able to get back on track
What trips people up the most in the motivation game are the self-limiting beliefs they hold. As they attempt change, they come up against these beliefs and they cause great anxiety and frustration, and they soon lose steam and then quit or backslide. These beliefs are usually some version of:
Is it true? Can you absolutely know that it’s true? Where’s the evidence that this thought is true? List the evidence. How do you react when you think that thought? Who would you be without that thought?
Byron then has you do a simple turnaround of your
belief. For a worksheet on how to do The Work, and to see it
in action on video, check out Bryon’s website at
Often we hang on to these beliefs because they are a
way of protecting ourselves. They allow us to stay right where
we are: safe and sorry. Then we get to be right about ourselves.
Life does have a way of giving us what we expect.

If so, you may be a candidate for coaching. Coaching
can make the difference between success and failure.
I have found that people who struggle with food and
emotional eating are released from that prison once they learn
the skills of mindful awareness and mindful eating, emotional
self-nurturing, developing a spiritual or meditation practice,
and learning to set appropriate limits and goals.
This turns off the urge to overeat and engage in other compulsive behaviors. When you feel better, you eat better! I have walked this path myself, and it has led me to peace and freedom.
The goal of my coaching is to create a lighter, balanced, healthier, nourishing and joy-filled life. You will begin to see results in all areas of your life because How You do Food is How You do Life!®
I coach and
mentor people in the areas of: permanent weight loss, food
addiction, compulsive, emotional overeating, binge eating
recovery, creative self expression, spiritual direction,
mindfulness, meditation, self care and stress management, self
esteem and body image issues.
My work is spiritually focused, not religious, and fits with any
belief system you may have, even agnostic. My work assumes that
you have all the wisdom and answers you need inside of you.
call this place -- God, intuition, Higher Power, inner wisdom,
or True Self -- is up to you. I am simply a guide bringing you
back to the truths that are already inside of you.
