Podcast #135: Key Habits to Losing All of Your Weight
One of the things people complain about the most going into the holidays is that you can’t get into a good routine and practice good habits during the holidays.
Today Corinne is going to talk about the five things that her members who’ve lost weight have done.
Corinne is amazed by all the women over the age of 60 who love the Tribe and have had tremendous success. They are motivated and have tried everything at this point. They also have no interest in doing bullshit diets. They want to feel better and do it in a way they can live their life.
Corinne is also amazed by her girls in their 20’s and early 30’s. They are going to do so much with their lives. Corinne’s teaching people how to truly change their lives. It’s more than just weight loss. They are learning to love themselves and it empowers them to show up every day.
Sarah is 28 and has lost over 100 pounds. Kiera started her own business and has run 2 half marathons with Corinne.
Cindy is a mentor and works with the ladies 55 and older. She hasn’t weighed her current weight since her 20’s.
Corinne likes to study her journey and the journey of her Tribe members and pulls out what worked that people need to know.
#1 The most successful people develop routines that work for them.
You need to start thinking of the things you can do on repeat that will work for you.
Corinne’s first routine was to start walking every single day. No excuses.
Stop arguing with your limitations. Start arguing for why you can do things.
She needed to practice having a routine she didn’t shit on. She wanted to keep the promise no matter what.
Many people start a ton of new routines at once and then after a week or two, it blows up in their face. Don’t set the bar too high at first. Just pick one thing that you have to get good at and keep pushing yourself to do.
Where am I going to start? Is this doable? You can take the free course at www.pnp411.com and it will help you with this. If it’s not doable, don’t pick it. If it’s doable, that’s the one to pick.
Keep practicing that one thing until you’re ready to layer in something else that’s doable.
Corinne started with walking. It’s evolved into her getting up, drinking water, start the coffee, write her goals, plans her food, and what she’s going to do for the day. She does this every single day. She grew into that routine.
The first thing Kathy started doing every day was to write down her food. You have to learn to look at what you’re actually eating.
Kathy has more than one morning routine. Some people have a weekday routine and a weekend routine.
Start with one simple change.
#2 Listen to things that support your goals.
Some ladies listen to PNP material all the time.
Corinne will sometimes go through Instagram and unfollow everyone that posts negativity. She does this with Facebook, email, and her accountability circles.
It’s not just about what you hear, but also what you see.
You want to surround yourself with things (books, podcasts, courses, people) that will help you to reach your goals.
The positive podcasts aren’t a mirror of what you’re not doing, use them as a mirror of things you could be doing.
You need to expose yourself to new ideas and directions you want to go in.
Who am I surrounding myself with? What am I watching on the internet?
Don’t skip your 24-hour plan because you “don’t have time” but then sit and scroll Facebook.
#3 Start slow.
If you’re eating a big bag of chips on the way home from work each night and stressing about all things you need to do that evening, start with switching the big bag for a small bag or some Baked Lays.
You can start changing. You can do a little better for yourself.
Switch from eating ice cream out of the carton to eating it out of a bowl. Those little steps are doable and sustainable and so important. Do it because you can, not because you should.
Quick-fix diets will not fix you. You decide what you’re willing to do for yourself, that’s what will change who you are. That’s how you start to love yourself.
#4 You have to work on your self-talk.
When you don’t have food to emotionally eat with, you’re left with what you’re thinking (your fears, your doubts).
Corinne has a course in the Tribe for self-love because it’s so important.
When you decide to no longer binge anymore and you’re left sitting there, who are you going to be sitting with…it’s yourself.
Work on your self-talk. It’s so much more important than counting calories or macros. You deserve better. Keep practicing better.
You’re not going to lose weight hating yourself and keep it off. A lot of people use weight loss and the scale to define their worthiness each week. If you don’t work on how you talk to yourself, the moment that scale doesn’t go in the right direction, you’ll beat yourself up.
#5 Don’t wish for weight loss, make it happen.
Sit down and make a plan of what you will do each day to lose weight. Don’t just wish for it or think about it.
Reinforce it in writing. This is what I’ll eat today. This is what I’ll think about myself today. This is my goal. Do it daily.
Corinne writes her goals down every single day. She wants to keep her weight off. Live a long life. Be here for her husband and son. Food is the vehicle that will allow her to see Logan in his 50’s and 60’s. She writes her food down every day. She also loves her clothes and doesn’t want to have to get rid of them because she gained weight.
Every day she writes down her goals, her why, what she’s going to be eating, and what she’s going to be doing for the day.
The Tribe members do the same thing. They don’t complain and wish they didn’t have to. They don’t act like they shouldn’t do it because they don’t always follow it. You definitely won’t follow a plan that isn’t written out. If you’re writing a plan every day and not following it, you’re not creating a realistic plan. Start where you’re at.
You have to break it down to where it’s not overwhelming and once it’s not overwhelming and it’s doable, you just have to get over the thought “it’s not good enough.” What’s not good enough is you bitching and moaning and acting like doing nothing is better. From now on we just take action.
Corinne posts weekend motivators every Friday in the Tribe. She’ll be posting one on Instagram soon.
Start slow, get a routine, listen to the right stuff, quit listening to bullshit and bullshit people, don’t wish for weight loss, start making it happen, start writing goals, and work on yourself-talk.
