Thoughts > Feelings > Actions > Results


I have seen this play out a million times in women everywhere -- hell, I lived it.

It is almost impossible to make good choices for yourself when you hate your body -- and when you hate your body, it's a reflection of how you feel about yourself.


You look in the mirror in disgust. That prompts the thought, ‘my body is disgusting’. That thought creates a corresponding feeling of inadequacy (or even hatred) for not having “willpower” or for being so “lazy” or for not being able to “stay on track”.


What kind of choices do we make for things we hate? NOT good ones. NOT choices that are in our best interest. So, those feelings create negative actions towards the objection (in this case the thing we see: our body). We slam it with insults, berate it, punish it, give up on it (and ourselves).


The result we’re getting on the outside with our bodies is merely the result of the actions we’re taking because of the thoughts and feeling going on IN us. Our body didn’t decide to starve itself because the scale went up 2lbs and our body didn’t decide to punish itself by chasing a half gallon of ice cream with a bag of potato chips and two glasses of wine.


And our hearts are so tired from fighting the same war it’s just looking for ways to numb itself.


That’s why we keep getting the same result. There’s not a single diet on the entire planet that can fix any of that. They just make it worse.


Notice the contrast in this second graphic below...

If we switch the thoughts, we switch how everything turns out.


Positive thoughts create positive feelings. And how do you treat something you have positive feelings about? You treat it with kindness, and care.


Actions based on kindness and care create, you guessed it… some pretty awesomely positive results. 😊


Ending the war with food and our bodies, actually trusting ourselves, being mindful and present in our bodies, listening to them and honoring their needs changes literally everything.


And it starts with taming your inner critic, changing your brain and your thoughts—not another diet.


Your brain controls everything so change that and absolutely everything changes.

After over two decades of her own personal weight & food struggles and almost a decade in the weight loss/fitness industry, Roni left the fitness industry and bundled everything she learned from her own recovery, from her time as a trainer & nutrition & wellness coach with everything she learned in her mindfulness-based cognitive behavior coach training, to create Cognitive Eating.  This allows her to guide and support people to live healthier lives through behavior and habit modification at the brain level, where it counts and will actually stick.

NOTE: While counselors or therapists often use CBT to deal with mental illness or a patient’s mental/emotional conditions and/or processing trauma, MBCT & cognitive eating does not. My roll as a coach, in its most simple form, is to encourage, coach and/or act as a facilitator of a client’s self-reflection, decision making, planning for the future, and creating life changes. As an MBCT & cognitive eating coach, I am obligated to refer clients in need of mental or physical health therapy to an appropriate licensed professional.
