Welcome to the Confident Body Podcast where we talk about all the mental and emotional parts of weight loss that diets don’t tell you. I spent most of my life feeling self-conscious about my body, looking for the next diet, or wishing I could just lose a few pounds. After feeling massive imposter syndrome teaching fitness, I began to wonder if there was more to feeling great than just nutrition and exercise. I realized that feeling confident in your skin is more about what’s between your ears than what’s on your plate. I began to understand how diets go against the way your brain is naturally wired and how diets make it so hard to lose weight long term. I learned specific strategies and tools to work WITH my brain to lose weight for good and finally feel confident in my body. And you can too. If you want to look in the mirror and see what’s RIGHT about you…Learn solutions that are easy and fit your busy life…Find out how to train your brain for weight loss…and love yourself and your body all the way down the scale, then let’s go.

Have you ever had a moment that makes you appreciate how good things are? 


I like to pay attention to synchronicities in life and I recently had a few that came in with the message that was telling me to pause and appreciate. 


It made me wonder about why our fear of pain—whether it’s losing someone we love or the fear of failure—often holds us back. And yet how do we look that fear in the face and have the courage to embrace th...

Have you ever felt like your mental radar is constantly tuned into what would make other people happy rather than what you actually want? 

Like hypothetically, maybe Mom wants you and the family to come over for dinner this weekend. It would just break her heart if she wasn’t able to see you. But your spouse really doesn’t want to go and the kids can’t be bothered. They want to know what grandma is cooking because they only like ce...

Have you ever been told “You’re too sensitive”? Have you ever felt like your emotions were just a little too much and too overwhelming to handle? Like you’re afraid to let your feelings be okay because deep down, you assume you're the problem?

I mean, how embarrassing is it to cry in front of your boss, right? Pull yourself together, girl! (Oh wait, is that just me?)

Have you ever stepped on the scale, feeling proud of your progress, only to have that nagging voice in your head whisper, "But can you keep it off?"


It's a familiar fear, isn't it? That sneaky worry that success might just be temporary, and those old habits will come creeping back in. But what if I told you there's a way to silence that doubt and live in the now?


In today's episode, we're diving deep into the all-too-common fea...

Have you ever felt like you're stuck in a dieting hamster wheel, constantly chasing THE THING that will actually work, but you always end up feeling defeated? 


Why do we do that? 

Why don’t we trust ourselves to know how to eat? 


Imagine this: you're staring at the menu, torn between the salad and the burger. Is it because you genuinely want the salad, or are you fearing the guilt that comes with the burger?  


Today we’re unr...

Have you ever found yourself thinking “I just wish I could eat whatever I want, whenever I want”? 


Maybe you even remember a time when that seemed to be true. Ah the good ol’ days. Isn’t it funny how we seem to remember the past with rose colored glasses?

But now a’days, if you even look at a hamburger you’ll put on 5 pounds. Ugh!

Have you ever found yourself trapped in the endless cycle of "shoulds"? You know, those nagging thoughts that tell you what you should be doing, how you should look, and who you should be? It's like having a not-so-helpful, naggy backseat driver living in your head, right?

But here's the kicker: does listening to those "shoulds" actually get you anywhere? Or do they just slow you down, leaving you feeling guilty and stuck?

Have you ever found yourself thinking ahead to when no one will be home and you can eat whatever you want - or how much of whatever you want - in secret without anyone to see? Maybe you wait till everyone is in bed, or you “do good” while you’re at work when others can see. But when you get home and you’re by yourself, it’s a different story. That can bring on so much shame. 

The same can be true of drinking. One of my most shamefu...

Have you ever felt like there’s more inside you that you’re not tapping into? Like  you're standing in the shadows of your own potential, afraid to step into the spotlight for fear of judgment? That nagging voice in your head says, “I know there’s more for me than this. There’s more I can do or give.” and at the same time that voice says "What will they think if I am truly me?"

Today I’d like to share with you a story from a recent...

Have you ever found yourself in a public place and a random stranger walks by and out of nowhere a super judgy thought pops in your brain. “Why would she wear that? Didn’t she look in the mirror this morning? At least I don’t weigh that much.” And then you think “What is wrong with me? Who thinks like that about other people?”

Or maybe you find yourself in a situation where you're just dying for someone close to you to make a diffe...

Have you ever found yourself on that rollercoaster of diets, calorie counting, feeling like you're trapped in a numbers game, fixated on what that scale says? You’ve been at it for a few weeks and maybe the scale has moved a little, but really not nearly like you expected. And you’re starting to get frustrated.

Have you ever had a specific food that just feels like it has a little more power over you than you do over it?

Like there are some foods that you can just take it or leave but there are others that you’re like “you’ll have to pry it from my cold dead fingers.”

And yet on the inside, you’re maybe a teensy bit scared that this food is more in control of you than you are of it?

Have you ever felt like losing weight is like trying to solve a Rubik's Cube blindfolded? The struggle is real, right? It's not just the simple formula that diets try to tell us it is. It's an emotional rollercoaster filled with frustration, self-doubt, and - let’s be honest -  the occasional forbidden love affair with a pint of ice cream. 

But what if it didn’t have to be that way? Instead of a tortuous grind, what if it could be ...
