The Hoda Show: How to Step It Up Physically and Mentally to Boost Your Confidence and Reach Your Weight Loss Goals

Weight loss coach, Stephanie Mansour, stopped by the Sirius XM Radio studio to chat with Today Show host, Hoda Kotb, live on The Hoda Show .

As a weight loss coach for women, one of the most important messages I’m passionate about spreading is that weight loss is not just about fitness and it’s not just about watching what you eat.

While it is important to step it up with your nutrition and workouts, it’s equally, if not more, important to step it up mentally. If you want to reach your fitness and weight loss goals, first you have to believe that you deserve to hit those goals.

If you don’t feel like dragging yourself off the couch, you have to change your thinking first.

If you’re too embarrassed to walk into the gym because you haven’t worked out in over a year, you have to build your confidence first.

If you want to stop binging on a whole row of Oreos every night, you have to believe you deserve to treat yourself better first.

There’s a mental shift that has to happen in order for you to value yourself so much that you want to do healthy things for yourself. I know this because I experienced this mental shift myself over a decade ago and it made all the difference — I finally lost the weight and kept it off for good! Plus, I’ve helped my private weight loss coaching clients and the women in my community do the same. 

Once you shift your thinking, you’ll skip the emotional eating, pass over junk food, and enjoy moving your body. Instead of rewarding yourself with a milkshake or zoning out on the couch at the end of a long day, you’ll begin to reward yourself with a healthy salad or a fun walk around your neighborhood.  

Then, after you’ve made this powerful mental shift and you’ve created healthy new habits, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with eating a few Oreos occasionally if you want — everything in moderation!

Recently, I stopped by the Sirius XM Radio studio to chat with Today Show host, Hoda Kotb, live on The Hoda Show. Listen to the interview HERE to hear my story about how I struggled to lose weight, the mental shift that turned it all around, and the strategies you can use to shift your thinking too.

Quick Techniques for Getting What You Want

Today I’m sharing with you some quick techniques for getting exactly what you want.

First, you must get clear on what exactly you want.

  1. Do you really want to lose 10 lbs because you hate your body, OR do you really want to like how your body looks and feels?
  2. Do you really want to restrict your calories to lose weight, OR do you really want to have more energy and feel lighter by eating healthier?
  3. Do you really want to hang around with that friend who always makes you feel bad about yourself, OR do you want to find new friends and are just afraid of meeting new people?
  4. Often times what we SAY we want is not what we actually want – there’s something deeper!

Start taking actions towards what you want.

  1. Years ago while searching for a new apartment, I contacted everyone I knew who could help me figure out where I wanted to live and how I could find my dream apartment.
  2. Similarly, one small action (like adding a side salad to your meal) signals to yourself that you’re taking action towards and putting effort into getting what you want.

Visualize what you want.

  1. I’m a HUGE fan of sticky notes!! I love posting them on mirrors and other places where I look throughout the day. Seeing the words, “I love my body” actually sink into your subconscious so that you start subconsciously believing and ACTING like you love your body.
  2. Write down what you see when you look at yourself in the mirror, and put this sticky note on your bathroom mirror.
