Happy Tuesday! Ready for some shocking news????? The typical holidays beginning in the fall are only 4 days for most people: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. Yes, not everyone celebrates these 4 holidays, but in the USA, most people do. You can substitute your holidays for any of the ones I mentioned to make it more meaningful for you. The point is that between October and January 1st, there are usually only 4 twenty-four hour blocks of time that include holidays. So, what’s my point? 


The biggest thing to realize is that we tell our brains to go all out for the months of October, November, and December just because it’s the “holidays”. Pause and let that set in! 91 days of celebration which we’ve convinced ourselves should include lots of unhealthy eating just because we’re in the “holiday spirit”! WOW! Most of us get caught up in this mindset so easily. But why?


Why do we let anything yummy and sweet be eaten in excess for 3 months? Why do we get caught up in the “holiday season” this way? Good question! It’s a habit! I invite you to think about it differently this year and to take control of how you want to think about the holidays in a way that will support your weight loss. That’s right…weight loss during the holidays!


Recap last week’s blog:  STEP #1: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS DURING THE HOLIDAYS? I challenged you to get curious about WHY you associate weight loss and the holidays in the way that you do and to write down all of your reasons and look at each one. How does this make you feel? What does weight loss during the holidays bring up for you?



Today, think about if you’d like to feel healthier during the holidays this year and are you ready to try something new? This means stepping outside of your comfort zone to get results. This might very well be the first time you’ve thought to try this, especially at this time of year. WHY NOT? I believe that you are worth it!


You have 2 choices: keep doing what you are doing and stay stuck with more weight on your body than it needs OR move forward with me to figure out how to get the weight loss that you want. I always say that nothing tastes as good as healthy feels! I live by that myself! I can help you learn how to shift your thinking so you can do the work to get there…during the holidays.


If you are ready to enjoy the holidays with your health as more of a focus, you’ve come to the right place and the time to start is NOW! I can help you ditch the belief that overindulging is something that you deserve. I can help you to reframe old habits of making dozens of cookies and eating more than you should to properly fuel your body. And most importantly, I can help you figure out why you self sabotage at this time of year. I listen to you, I offer strategies, and I guide you through the journey. Ready to join me?


Reach out to me so that we can start doing the work and you can get big results! My clients get it done and so can you! I think that you are worth it…don’t you?

Happy Tuesday! Tomorrow is the first day of Fall…officially! The Fall season to me feels so cozy, so comforting, and so welcomed to move into a new time of year. The colors and smells bring me back to happy childhood fall days with apples, pumpkins, and beautiful leaves! What does Fall mean to you? What are your thoughts about this season? What does it taste like to you?


That being said, like it or not, it also means that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are right around the corner. If you are considering losing weight BEFORE the holidays, you may be feeling a bit of panic about all of the extra sweets and treats that are coming your way. Do you feel like you will give in to all of the temptations or will you overindulge? Is that your pattern? Do you usually start losing weight only to quit when you give in to holiday food? How do YOU feel about this? Or are you panicked and fearful that you are setting yourself up for failure…again this year? Or are you excited and joyful because you know how to lose weight, even at the holidays? Are you hopeful that this time will be different?


STEP #1: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS DURING THE HOLIDAYS? Write down your thoughts about this so that you can see what you are choosing to think. This will lead you to really face your thinking head on. Remember, YOU decide how you think. YOU decide what that means to you. YOU are in control! Did you ever realize that? There’s your power; you get to decide your thoughts. YOU write your own story. 


Next, get curious about WHY you associate weight loss and the holidays in the way that you do. Write down all of your reasons and look at each one. How does this make you feel? What does weight loss during the holidays bring up for you? Face your feelings and clear the brain clutter to make space for the next step. Eliminate the reasons that you know are not going to serve you if you want to shed weight in the next month or months ahead. This will give you clarity of your chosen pathway forward. The best part is that YOU have the power to decide for yourself.


So, spend this next week on step #1 so that next week we can talk about the next step: FACE YOUR FEELINGS→ Do you want to feel them or eat them? What is the cost of doing either? That’s going to make a big difference! I can’t wait to walk you through that next step next Tuesday!


In the meantime, please reach out to me if you are interested in working together one on one BEFORE holiday stress and temptations come your way. You’ll be amazed how this is actually the BEST time of year to make healthy weight changes! TRUST ME! That’s how I have learned to be my own holiday weight loss boss! Think it over! I’m ready to get started with you!

Happy Tuesday! Today’s message is simple: Be kind…to yourself! I also say this as a gentle reminder to myself! As I tell my clients, I don’t ask you to try anything that I haven’t already tried myself! You see, I am always a work in progress, constantly trying to learn how to take better care of myself. That way, I can better understand what my clients need, too.

Here are some suggestions to do when you catch yourself being unkind to yourself:

  • Talk to yourself the way you would talk to a friend!
  • Talk to yourself the way you would want someone to talk to you!
  • Praise yourself for small victories the way you would for someone else!
  • Gently encourage yourself when you are in doubt of your abilities!
  • Give yourself the room to be human and to make mistakes! Expect them!
  • Nudge yourself along with words of encouragement when the hill seems too steep to climb!
  • REST! Your mind and body need recharging on a regular basis! Listen to the cues to pause!
  • Be your own best cheerleader! Don’t wait for others to cheer you on first!

Just imagine how much calmer you’d feel each day if you were kinder to yourself! Give it a try this week!

You’ve got this!




Happy Tuesday! Fall is coming in a few weeks and then the holiday countdown begins…ready or not! The holidays will be on your radar before you know it! Be honest; how does that sit with you? Does that stir up feelings of excitement or fear? Joy or anxiety? Anticipation or dread? Confidence or lack of confidence? Happiness or sheer panic? Pause for a moment and see how that feels right now? Where are you right now with your mental weight and your physical weight? Better yet, where do you want to be? What does your future self want for results BEFORE the holidays? How do you want to show up for the holidays this year? How do you want this year to be different?


You see, most people feel powerless at this time of year and struggle with doing the work now BEFORE the holidays. Why? Because it is easier to stay stuck! It is easier to keep doing the same things, even when they don’t work. Your brain likes routine and dislikes change. Changing one small thing at a time adds up to bigger changes that make a difference! One small step at a time changes everything. And how you do one thing is how you do everything! Such power that you really have!


Good news! You have a choice about how you feel and how you handle the approaching holiday season! You have power that you just haven’t realized yet! Are you surprised? Ready for me to guide you to make changes? Want to hear more?


In a few weeks, I’ll be kicking off my free “FALL INTO THE HOLIDAYS” challenge! I’ll teach you some of my favorite tools to make some changes BEFORE the holidays. It will be life changing and you’ll get fired up to be your best self! Habit change starts with your thoughts and then pushes out to your physical changes. It’s amazing how honoring this way of habit change works so well! 


Look for this FREE opportunity soon on my Facebook page (Georgette LePage Health & Life Coaching) and sign up for this incredible opportunity! What a great pre-holiday gift to give to yourself! You won’t want to miss it! I’ll be waiting for you!
