63. Coach Spotlight: Meet Lauren

Ep 63 Coach Spotlight Meet Lauren podcast image

In This Episode

Welcome back to our Coach Spotlight series!  This is the third of three coach spotlights, so be sure to go back and listen to the first two if you missed them.  In this episode, you’ll meet Lauren, our Registered Dietitian.  

I’m so excited for you to learn a little bit more about her background and really get to know her.  

Lauren is a single mom of an almost-three-year-old boy and a dietitian of nearly 10 years.  She’s also a foodie who loves cooking and trying out new recipes, enjoys spending time outdoors and has a weakness for true crime podcasts.

She tells us about being overweight as a child and how her love of sports and her family’s support helped her to lose 25 pounds when she was in the fifth grade.  

Lauren played softball through high school and began trying out different types of exercise and fitness activities in college after the dreaded Freshman 15 hit and even became a certified yoga and pilates instructor.

She went into college undeclared and during a conversation with her advisor, her love for food and cooking led her to study nutrition.  She says she chose the path selfishly to learn how to better navigate her own life and weight struggles but found that once she started working with patients and clients, she really loved being able to relate her history, understand where they were, and help them navigate the process.

Over her career, Lauren has worked in hospitals, dialysis centers, community centers, a psychiatric center, a CrossFit gym and now with us here at EA Coaching.

We talk about so much in this episode, including how to cook for a family and still reach your weight loss goals – and Lauren shares what her meal times look like these days with a toddler.

We also dive into why the numbers (on the scale, BMI) don’t tell the whole story and how to be consistent with your routines (spoiler: you may need to try out more than one).

You’ll Learn:

  • How to find your exercise “entry point”
  • Lauren’s current go-to workouts
  • Her favorite part of coaching
  • Why being a little selfish is a good thing
  • Her advice to people who have struggled with maintaining their weight over time

139. Mastering Resilience (Why It Matters & How To Do It)

How old were you when you first thought about changing your body?

If some of the first weight or body image related experiences from your childhood – like attending WW meetings as a 12-year-old – are still having an impact on how you view yourself today, this episode is for you.

I’m reviewing Mastering Resilience, by Lorry Leigh Belhumeur, and sharing the steps you can take to not only heal yourself but ensure that you break the cycle of self-loathing for the next generation.

Learning to use those adverse experiences to fuel your desire to make positive changes to become the happiest, healthiest, and most confident version of yourself is the first step in changing your story.

138. Phases of Progress

Have you ever heard the saying, “If it was easy, everyone would do it”?

This is true for almost anything that’s worth doing – starting a new job, renovating your house, and, yes, even losing weight.

The truth is that it’s usually not the end goal that makes everything feel unattainable, but rather the phases of progress you have to go through to reach your goal.

I know we all want our progress to be fast, easy, and predictable.

But it’s just not.

Every single one of us works through four phases of progress, some of which are much more trying than others.

I’m breaking them all down in this episode to help normalize exactly what it looks like to make progress that lasts.

Are you ready to lose fat for good?​
