“I went to my doctor about my weight and he told me to stop eating so much…Oh no he didn’t!!!”

This was a comment one of my co-workers made while expressing her frustration about her recent weight gain and his lack of sensitivity about the matter. We all chimed in agreement how rude he was. True, while eating less of the right foods and exercising more would contribute to achieving some weight loss, that would mean having to rely on willpower and some pretty good motivation. Motivation by the way is the number one deterrent or key to successful weight loss program. No one wants to hear that they eat too much or that they don’t exercise enough. Am I right? We already feel bad enough that our reflection in the mirror has changed so much that we can hardly recognize the person who is looking back at us. 

What my friend needs to know is that change is possible!

It all has to do with the power of our brain pathways. As a nurse who has taught Lamaze classes for many years, to pregnant woman and their partners to prepare them for the child-birthing process, I have seen the power of creating new pathways in our brain. 

The laboring woman is taught to focus on another “focal point” during the contraction or pain. This causes her brain to perceive the pain as lessened. Although much more to this process, my students had a 90% success rate. Meaning they were able to have the natural childbirth as planned. The second key part of this process, is that they were informed of every obstacle that they might come up against and were prepared with many tactics to bring them through. 

These obstacles in our weight loss journey can be referred to as “RESISTANCE” . You can count on it occurring to deter you from your course. So it is essential to prepare by identifying the resistance and it’s many forms it can take. 

I have created a short video to explain the process of identifying the resistance and the top 10 resistance grenades, to crush it. 


Gain more control over your life and utilize your brain better. Create new pathways!

Sounds complicated but it is easy as learning a new route to take to work or school.

Think about it. Have you ever got into your car and started driving somewhere and then realized you were driving to work?....on your day off!! How did that happen?....One word...


Now use it to your advantage.

Start creating new pathways today
