We are in the middle of a four-part series on the cheat code to weight loss. And today we are getting into the third pillar, immersion. When I was first learning this work, the work of changing and being aware of my mindset, it was over whelming. It seemed like so much, it felt like a lot. When I was thinking back to that time, I remember going through my coach’s course like 15 times. I just kept playing all of the different videos over and over again. I was immersing myself in the work. When you become disconnected from the work Lizzie will tell you all the reasons to just quit on yourself. Remember, our brain is always seeking pleasure and avoiding pain. So our brains are trying to pull us back into the cave.
Join me tonight as I teach you how my Transform bosses are learning to be successful in their weight loss. How doing all the little things throughout the day can bring you success and you can lose weight for good. How you can decide on purpose how are you going to immerse yourself in this work and just plan when you’re going to do it – going back to the second pillar (planning). And then love, just do it. Don’t get in your head about it. You are worth the investment in yourself because see my love, you are a fierce boss and you deserve a life of your dreams in a body that you love.

If you loved listening to this podcast, I would love to have you come check out my Transform Weight Loss Program. It is my monthly coaching program where we take this work to a whole new level.
You are listening to the Weight Loss for Successful Women podcast with Shannan Christiansen episode number 81. Welcome to Weight Loss for Successful Women, a podcast for women who are ready to break the diet cycle and end their struggle with weight for good. Here’s your host, fortune 100 executive, and certified life coach, Shannan Christiansen.
We are in the middle of a four-part series on the cheat code to weight loss. But first, I want to give a listener shout out, and this week’s listener shout out is to Sharon Spohn. Shannan, since joining transform, I have made changes in my life that I never thought were possible. I fought change for so long. I was telling myself if I change, no one will love me anymore. I would lose all my friends. These were lies I was telling myself to keep myself safe. Making changes has made me more confident, relationships stronger. I’m so happy that I took this leap of faith and made these changes. Oh my Sharon, I love me some Sharon. Let me tell you ladies, she has lost 121 pounds with Transform, and she has been in maintenance since October of 2020. Like she is amazing. I love you, Sharon.
Now love, if you love this show, please rate and review it. It really does help other women find this life changing work. Ladies, as I am recording this episode, it is Easter weekend. I am so excited about seeing my family. We’re having a small gathering with immediate family at my house today, and I cannot wait. I love spending time with them. And you know how I feel about my grandbabies. I have been on zoom with them this week and they are so excited. I love watching little kids get excited. It is so fun to watch. I think about how they feel all their emotions and you can see it all the way through their bodies. I love watching their energy.
So today we are getting into the third pillar, immersion. When I was first learning this work, the work of changing and being aware of my mindset, it was over whelming. It seemed like so much. I was a busy director, I had a family, was commuting from state to state. I knew it was the way, but it felt like a lot. I was changing. I was failing, growing, learning. When I was thinking back to that time, I remember going through my coach’s course like 15 times. I just kept playing all of the different videos over and over again. I was immersing myself in the work. See, when I allowed myself to become disconnected from the work, I would slowly start quitting on myself because when you start to change, our lizard brain becomes overactive telling you all the reasons why you will fail, why you can’t do it. Why it’s hard. Lizzie will say, why don’t you just get back in the bed with the sugar cookies and Netflix? Remember, our brain is always seeking pleasure and avoiding pain. So our brains are trying to pull us back into the cave.
I then look at all my Transform ladies who’ve had the most success, and they immerse themselves in the work too. What it means is taking the coursework, listening to podcasts, reading books, it’s immersing yourself in so you don’t start disconnecting. And they do it by coming to our calls or watching the replays, putting in their earbuds while their families watching TV or while they’re getting ready in the morning.
It is the daily reminder of this work, because left to our automatic brains, our primitive brains, you know Lizzie, we will go backwards. We will give in. We will give up. The definition of immersion is deep mental involvement. I love that definition. It’s submerging yourself in the work so you can change. So you can have success. To lose weight for good and change the old diet beliefs from years of dieting you must immerse yourself in the work. You can do this love, it is possible. I want you to think for a moment and decide on purpose, how are you going to immerse yourself in this work? Again love, podcast, coursework, books, all the material in Transform. Decide, and then plan when you’re going to do it, going back to the second pillar.
And then my love, just do it. Don’t get in your head about it. Don’t put yourself up. Show up for yourself. You are so worth this work. You are worth the investment in yourself because see my love, you are a fierce boss and you deserve a life of your dreams in a body that you love.
So the transformational questions are one, How can you immerse yourself in this work? Two, When are you going to do it? Three, How will immersing yourself in the work help you on your weight loss journey?
