In this episode, recorded on February 8, 2024, Gina talks thought patterns and weight loss with Dr. Beverley David. Dr. Beverley is a Clinical Psychologist registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. She also holds a Ph.D. in Sleep Research (Insomnia) and a Master's in Health Psychology. You can find the full video hosted at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/livymethodwinter2024 Topics covered: Introducing Dr. Beverley David Addressing the inner dialogue when our history informs our present. Food is powerful! Family, culture, and the varied ways we use food to communicate, celebrate, and beyond. Let's talk about how we can change our negative thoughts about the scale. Catastrophizing, snowballing, and spiralling: how we can catch ourselves in these thought traps. I'm doing all the things....so, what am I doing wrong? Would you talk to a friend that way? When scolding, berating, and punishing ourselves are used as a form of motivation. We are learning emotional regulation that doesn't harm ourselves. Learning to be healthy is a lifelong journey. Are you festering in your funk? Try using the 3 C's - Capture, Cancel, Correct. Teasing apart our beliefs and the reality of losing weight. Let's do it! Suspending belief and going for it. Willpower is not enough; we need to plan it and do it and get back on track when we are off. Planting seeds of doubt? How sabotage can become the struggle we start to focus on. We're so vulnerable. What if I fail? High expectations followed by disappointment. What's this all about? "This is not a sprint, it's a journey" Building up confidence and being strong on the inside when we choose to speak about our choices. Distinguishing between negative beliefs, past traumas and the difference between Big T and Little t events. Comfort from food as a way to cope with negative thoughts. Practicing the 3 C's by slowing ourselves down with a conscious pause. Dealing with thought traps, word prisons, personalization and other ways we get stuck in negative thinking. Mindfulness takes practice and presence. Try a FEAR plan: Feeling, Expectation, Attitude/Belief + Actions, Reward.

Join Gina and Program Manager Kim as they answer your questions and break down the tweak that we see in The Program this week. This is the live recording from February 7, 2024. You can find the full video hosted at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/livymethodwinter2024 Topics covered: The tweaks are meant to address "all the things" both physically and mentally. Downsizing is about giving your body what it needs and being more in tune to the right amount of food for you. Counting, weighing, and measuring your foods is not a sustainable method to lose weight in a healthy way! This week's tweak is designed to bring up the feelings and associations we have with portions and hunger. It's less about eating less: We really want to better understand our body's cues for satisfied and less satisfied. Are you wondering if you are doing downsizing or not doing it? @ 10:08 Don't overthink it! Serve yourself all of the same components, dig into the 4 Questions, and listen to your body. Distinguishing two different forms of "appealing" foods: The ones we crave/want and the ones the body needs. Getting satisfaction: it's about developing a level of trust in your body. Feeling in the moment and noticing the cues your body may be heading into detox. Kim and Gina discuss what "slightly less" is all about. Feeling triggered? Downsizing will bring up all of the feels we have around food, past diets, and hunger. Get out of your head and into your belly! Going back for seconds after checking in on how you feel is a good practice to deploy when downsizing. Downsizing is not about less and less; it's about getting in tune to portions and how you feel, not what they look like. Learning from your experiences and trusting that you have another snack or meal coming down the pipeline. Feeling too full? You may want to lighten up what you are choosing to eat. Water does nothing to satisfy an appetite! You may miss the messages of your body when distracted, tired, or eating too quickly. Choosing the right foods at the right time. Be sure to review the downsizing tweak but also know that you don't have to be perfect. You get to do it again in two weeks! Next Week: We are maximizing and eating to satisfaction as we become even more in tune to portions. Meeting yourself where you are at in the process: practice those mindful eating questions. Got ideas about how to downsize? Share your tips in the Downsizing Tips post! To learn more about the Livy Method, visit www.ginalivy.com. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Every body is different so get to know your own patterns on the scale. It's not just one thing, but the many small things you are doing. It all adds up! What to do if you are feeling setbacks are knocking you off track. The tweaks each week help build momentum to get the body to focus on fat loss. Feeling triggered? Downsizing will shake things up. What you are eating makes a difference in your hunger levels. Planning your next adventure? Reflect on how you want to feel. When your weight starts to move, you want to support the body in detox. Patterns of weight loss: Up, down, and plateaus yet still on a downward trend. Let's normalize that Life Happens while we are on our journey! Don't stress: when you are sick, pay attention to addressing what your body needs. There is no rush to add in the secondary supplements. Be sure to check out the basic supplements first! Cholesterol may not be the enemy we once thought it was. A tip for recruiting family and friends: don't! Focus on yourself and let others see the results. Highlighting real people: Be sure to check out this week's Spill the Tea conversation with Sharon Burton Robb Carrot sticks missing? Is someone eating your salad? Don't be surprised when family members like your nutrient-rich options because people just want to feel good! The Livy Method works because it is not about starving, depriving, and exercising your butt off. Play around with downsizing. This is a great week to give it a try. You're not going to die!
