  1. As a long-time fan of the Mom Podcast, this episode really surprised me. While I really resonated with the straightforward advice on fitness and healthy eating, I was very taken aback by Kristi’s advice on overcoming self-defeating behaviors.

    Putting tape over your mouth until you have completed an “action item”?
    Putting yourself in time out by standing with your nose in a corner?

    At first I thought she was joking, but she repeated these points several times. At this stage, I lean towards concluding that she was actually serious, which is kind of mind-blowing.

    It sounds like some of the other hosts had a really good experience with this program, but for those folks who have a hard time overcoming their self-defeating behaviors and really sticking to a life-style change, I was left with the distinct impression that Kristi’s techniques were not very realistic or effective.

    If I’ve judged this wrongly, I would be very interested in hearing more about the portions of the program that help people identify and overcome their self-defeating behaviors.

  2. This is Nancy: What I took away from Kristi is that if you do something to disrupt your regular internal dialogue, you can often stop yourself from doing something that defeats your overall goals.

    I would not personally put tape over my mouth or stand in the corner, but I have learned that my thoughts lie to me. I heard this from Dr. Daniel Amen, a brain researcher who says that often our thoughts about our body and about food are wrong and that we should not believe them. He says that if you realize that your brain is telling a lie, you can overcome it. In the same way, if you take a time out and don’t act on your thoughts, you can overcome them.

    Kristi is straight-forward and the first time I met her, some things she said to me after the show that took me back. However, she knows her stuff like no one else I have met and has a true and genuine interest in helping women see their true potential. Sometimes it takes a shake up to think about things in a new way.

    What I took away from the show is that I am my own worst enemy and that I can do way more than I make myself. I stand in the way of my own success because of my thinking and my “needs” that really are just excuses for getting my body healthy. If I take the step to shake up my patten and don’t allow my Stinkin Thinkin to rule me, I can make a breakthrough.

  3. Kristi is firm, but she has learned that she has to be that way to help women actually overcome a lifetime of bad habits.

    Personally, I haven’t yet figured out how to make enough time for my own health and that of my family’s. I am still learning and hopefully progressing, albeit slowly.

    Thanks Matthew for the concern, we are grateful for dedicated listeners like you who make a difference in the lives of your children and others everyday!

    We’ll keep following our health/ weight issues in upcoming shows.
