“You’re a big, fat pig.” “If you just lost weight, people would like you.” Sadly, this is the negative self-talk many hear. But it doesn’t work. It’s not motivating. It doesn’t help you lose weight. It backfires!
How would you feel if I shamed you for your weight or food choices? What if I said that there was no way you should love yourself until you reached your goal weight?
Of course, health is important, and weight is one aspect of health, but we’ve lost our perspective.
The number on the scale determines our value and worthiness. If it’s too high, our inner voice screams “You are not good enough.
” We’ve also believed the lie that if we could just lose weight we would be happy.
The bottom line is we can’t hate ourselves happy or healthy or thin.
Studies show that self-criticism is associated with less motivation and worse self-control and it’s also one of the biggest predictors of depression.

Are you like Pavlov’s dog when it comes to eating?
I know I was! My “bell’ was the green couch and Netflix reruns. In my mind, that always meant a big bowl of popcorn followed by some chocolate.

Why EFT Tapping Works for Weight Loss.
Are you on the go 24/7, but still can’t lose weight or keep it off?
Do you sometimes wish you could just turn off your brain? Have you ever found yourself in front of the pantry or the refrigerator saying to yourself “I just need SOMETHING?”
EFT Tapping can help!
When we’re in a chronic state of stress (or “chaos” brain as I like to call it), we’re very likely in fight-or-flight mode, pumping out extra adrenaline and cortisol – which then helps us store FAT!
Join Karen Donladson and discover WHY we reach for the carbs/comfort foods (it’s not about willpower) and HOW we can curb our cravings and calm our brains with something other than food. EFT is the only tool I’ve ever found that helps heal the REAL issues behind our emotional eating to allow you to lose the weight and keep it off.

How Can I Love & Accept Myself if I’m so Fat?
EFT tapping for weight loss is great, but what happens when you get stuck on the set-up statement?
Many of the clients that I work with have a hard time saying the words “I love and accept myself”, especially when those words are preceded by “Even though I’m fat”. In this week’s show, I’ll help you tap through this obstacle so you can progress on your weight loss and healing journey.
Does your day start with “I’m fat, I’m stressed, I can’t lose weight”?
Be careful – the Universe is listening! When I first learned how powerful our thoughts were in creating our reality, my first thought was “Wow, that’s cool”. My second thought was “Oh geez, I gotta be careful what I think!”
When it comes to weight loss, our WORDS really are powerful.
Join me and very special guest Dawson Church from EFT Universe (author of EFT for Weight Loss and The Genie in Your Genes) to learn what steps to take to start changing your thoughts so that your words work FOR you not AGAINST you to lose the weight and keep it off. We’ll also help you come up with a daily plan for tapping and shifting the beliefs that may be holding you back in so many areas of your life.

Beth lost 100 pounds when she realized weight loss does not equal happiness.
Nearly everyday I hear people say “if I could just lose weight, I would be happy”. In reality, it works the other way – happiness and peace in your life equals weight loss. Join me for this fascinating subject as we talk about Beth, a client who has lost over 100 pounds – and kept it off – with EFT. Beth had spent most of her life caring for others and not really speaking HER truth. But she wasn’t truly happy. Her sisters were mean and her husband was always trying to “help her” lose weight. For years, Beth believed that if she could just lose weight, life would be better. But each time she lost weight, she gained it back, causing her more pain and frustration
You’re not a failure! On this call, I’ll guide you through some of the lessons and tapping I used with Beth to help her release the weight. Here’s what Beth says “I’m working on healing the hurts that have caused me to eat emotionally. I understand that weight loss does not equal happiness. I’m learning to love and accept myself whether other people do or not.”

Learn about the science behind EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) for weight loss?
Listen to my radio show as I interview Dr. Peta Stapleton, a registered Clinical and Health Psychologist and Assistant Professor at Bond University in Australia. Stapleton specializes in eating disorders, women’s health and adolescent issues.
In 2008, she led a world first clinical trial investigating the effectiveness of EFT for food cravings. The study showed a decrease in cravings with weight loss that was maintained 12-months later.
Stapleton also just concluded another study examining EFT vs Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Both were effective at reducing cravings, but the EFT group lost, on average, more weight over a six-month period.
