    Ep 136 The Myth of BMI

    Ep 136 The Myth of BMI

    Science gives us the reason why we should weigh this much and reach our ideal BMI.
    We can always consider that basis but not forget to factor in other important facets of one's life.
    We all have to experience different phases in our life. No one should tell us how much exactly we need to weigh. 
    Sometimes, we need to see things in a way where our body and what it looks like at some point needs to be like that to carry us through the stress and hardships of facing the situation we have.
    In this episode, Leslie shares how we should look beyond just counting the number and putting away all those ideal BMI beliefs. It is not so much about decreasing your food and exercise. It's more about looking into the emotional aspect of weight gain. 
    Something deep needs to be given attention and be worked on. When the root cause hidden in your subconscious is unearthed and healed, there's profound change. 
    You are more than your body, and when you realize that, that's when you have emotional mastery, and you deal with stress better. In doing so, you are on the road to freedom and peace.
    "You have this opportunity now to actually take where you're at, to change the course of your future, where it won't be one of disappointment, it won't be one of continuous feeling like a failure and that your body is not enough. I can't tell you how attractive it is to meet someone who has just confidence and radiance in the skin that they're in, regardless of what that size is. "  - Leslie Thornton
     
    What you will learn from this episode:
    01:56 - What people are saying about that BMI formula
    06:28 - How the different phases in our life make us choose either growth or control
    08:53 - The pain in growth and how things spiral out negative thoughts
    17:04 - Your body is what it is right now, and the same with the mental chatter in your mind
    21:25 - Paying attention to the emotional reason for the weight gain and finding a solution for that
    24:20 - Getting into the source of the matter
    26:05 - Becoming your authentic self and not having to follow what others want you to do
    29:22 - Having that detachment from the number people are saying you need to be

    Re-Wire Your Mind To Increase Health & Wholeness

    Re-Wire Your Mind To Increase Health & Wholeness

    With a diet mentality, control is the name of the game. But why it often fails is because we're so focused on the goal of losing weight that when we fall off track, it's harder to get back on again. We end up hating ourselves for that.
    And that makes us unkind to ourselves. That's where perfectionism ends up in desperation. And only worsens things.
    Besides, a lot in your past likely has to do with your eating behaviors: overeating, stress eating, anxious eating, and comfort eating. Unless you learn to deal with your emotions and master them, you will always be in an endless cycle of putting away those extra pounds.
    In today's episode, Rusty Osborne shares his background, how heavy he used to be, and how he's turned around his life and weight for the better. Thanks to NLP[ Neuro Linguistics Programming] for helping him repattern his subconscious mind to do away with the trauma and hurts of things past. With this modality, he was able to live a life making empowered food choices, and learning about self-acceptance, self-awareness, and self-forgiveness. Together, all these help him learn to trust himself and the process and do what feels right for his body.  
    Hear him share NLP's core beliefs and how significant they help you with body image and weight issues. And if there are parts of you that conflict with each other, you can learn to align them, coming from a place of integrity instead of fear. That way you learn to be kind and love yourself more and the people who matter most to you.
    "People have all the abilities they need to succeed. You have it; I have it, and everyone listening has it. All we need to do is be able to tap into that. And learning to trust yourself is massive." - Rusty Osborne

And ultimately stepping out from fear and embracing freedom and peace.

    Ep 133 Knowing Yourself Is Key To Balancing Your Weight

    Ep 133 Knowing Yourself Is Key To Balancing Your Weight

    Perfecting our eating habits is never easy. It is even more difficult when you are on a diet mentality. A mindset of control leads to us falling off track, losing weight, and then gaining weight again.
    As a result, we hate ourselves for how things turn out. We'll never be able to rest easy knowing that. Our bodies are capable of determining how much food they need. We can make a mess of our eating behaviors when we don't know our energy type. 
    It might be worth focusing on one thing. This is what self-awareness is all about.
    Kelsey Abbot discusses how the different energy types in human design work in this episode. A complete understanding of yourself will allow you to effectively manage your food, body, and weight management issues. It also eliminates the stress of doing something that is not your thing.

She also studied at the Applied Neuroscience Institute, earning her NeuroPositive Certificate in using neuroscience to change how the brain processes challenges.
    Before becoming a Certified Professional Coach, Kelsey earned her Masters in Marine Biology and graduate certificate in non-fiction writing. She worked as a nationally-recognized science writer, as a marine biologist studying dolphins and killer whales, a personal trainer, a group fitness instructor, a swim coach, a triathlon coach, and a food blogger. She also was (and still is) a triathlete who races both nationally and internationally. After a decade in Maine and 16 months of traveling around the U.S. in a small camper, Kelsey now lives in Sarasota, Florida, with her husband Pete and Doberman Zumi.

    Ep 132 From Mental Obsession To Your Personal Greatness

    Ep 132 From Mental Obsession To Your Personal Greatness

    Worried about being a failure again? That you would never stop binging, that you'd overeat, that you wouldn't fit into that dress? You'll always hate the body you have?
    That won't get you anywhere. It will only make things worse and encourage you to gain weight. 
    It looks the same in relationships when you keep begging and keep chasing. Regardless of your efforts, you will always be on the losing end.
    It's important not to be obsessed with perfecting the process of getting what you want. Life isn't easy, and you need to manage it. Embrace your flaws and love yourself anyway. It's time to ditch the diet mentality.
    Consider what you truly want for yourself. This is the only way you can find peace, freedom, and meaning in your life, no matter your size.
    As with anything in life, there are challenges along the way. To get on your journey to greatness and self-love, you need mastery tools. The Hypnosis program can help you get started. 
    "People always say, as soon as you let go of needing to be in a relationship, that's when that relationship pops in, like, immediately. We need to get you to stop needing to lose weight and focus on what you want and how you want to feel and know you can create that for yourself even without the weight loss." - Leslie Thornton
     
     What you will learn from this episode:
    02:28 - What mental obsession looks like, and the negative effect it has on your body and your being
    05:08 - Imagine the possibility of living life with no mental obsession
    08:24 - Know what you truly want and create something beautiful for yourself even with no weight loss
    10:01 - Choosing growth versus control
    13:19 - Not the easiest step to take, but all worth it
    14:09 - How it feels when you heal parts of yourself and finally step into your greatness and highest potential
