You were one of those though that actually stuck to your guns and chose chose Real Madrid to win this final. What did you make of how they did?

GoFundMe Reaches $2 Million for 4 Orphans of Slain Uvalde Teacher
"And I went to bed last night, there was about a half a $1 million collected in a GoFundMe account for the four orphaned children of the couple in uvalde, Texas who lost their parents, the mother was slaughtered by the by the beast who went into that elementary school, and then the father yesterday died of a heart attack. They, his family rightfully said, he died of a broken heart. And the couple leaves behind four children. It was about $560,000 when I went to bed. Right now, the GoFundMe page has over $2 million in contributions to help these children have some sort of financial stability as they go forward. The money doesn't matter. None of those kids would want to dime. If they could get their mom and dad back, but it does speak to the goodness of the American people, how we just want to help. We are in this together and I hope we can try to reject the jackals of divisiveness and hatred and anger and rage and realize that we're suffering through something that. Nobody, no country should go through.

"Guys, I'm pleased to welcome to the podcast actor director producer Kevin sorbo. You know him for Hercules Andromeda, God's not dead, soul surfer, let there be light. And he's got a whole bunch of projects coming up, which we're gonna talk about Kevin, thanks for joining me. I really appreciate it. You are in Israel. Tell us what you're doing there. I was shooting a documentary, I actually came here about three and a half years ago, I shot a documentary with John Lennox, John Lennox is a retired math professor from Oxford, you know, we as an apologist, he's debated all the great atheists who are like singer and Dawkins and Hitchens and we shot here and it's called against the tie to highly recommend that one. But this time, I'm doing the same type of thing I'm on camera, but I'll be narrating this as well, but it deals with the quest and search for the ark of the covenant. And it's been amazing. I'm working with two gentlemen out here that once worked in an archeological dig right now, which they believe is the site of the Israelites before they lost the Philistines at the site of Shiloh. So they're in an archeological dig in Shiloh right now. And these guys are amazing. I'm really, I'm the audience.

Do Libral States Really Protect Women and Inorities?
"John, I want you to finish your thoughts because I had to go to a heartbreak. Where are we going to say just before we went into the break? Sure. Well, you know, there are 7 states that are so called may issue states. California and New York are tourism infected Supreme Court right now is deciding basically these are different from the other 43 states because in those 7 states you have to provide a good reason to some public official before they will let you be able to go and have a gun to protect yourself outside your home. And so anyway, a few years ago, I got a hold of the list of all the concealed carry permit holders in Los Angeles County. There was a little bit over 300 out of an adult population of about 8 million. And the amazing thing was, you know, here's a very liberal democratic controlled area. Democrats are deciding who has a good reason to get permits. You would think they would like women. You would think that they would protect minorities, at least from their rhetoric. But if you look at the permits that they give out, only 7% of the permit holders were women. Nationwide, almost 30% of permit holders are women in the states where they don't have to go and get permission in Los Angeles County only 5% of permit holders were black, which is less than half of their share of the population there. Mason wide, it's about 12% of permit holders are black, which is pretty close to their share of the population. And Los Angeles County only 6% of the permit holders are Hispanic, you know, and they make up 54% of the population in Los Angeles County.
Why Won't Democrats Focus on Their Surveillance Scandals?
"Their into surveillance unlawful surveillance That's why they wanted their little ministry of truth According to the office of the national Intel more than half of those queries almost 2 million were part of the larger investigation of alleged Russia attempts to target a week in U.S. critical infrastructure The office reported and admitted that on at least four occasions the FBI fell to get fisa approval before accessing the contents of information collected It's not the first time the FBI has been caught red handed overstepping its legal authority It seems to me there's systemically focused on undermining law abiding citizens And there are lighter array Jordan Turner laid out a laundry list of questions about the report demanding further transparent Isn't it interesting that the Democrats don't do this They control the Congress Is it an interesting that they're not focused on this at all And the vast majority of them weren't upset with this ministry of truth And the vast majority of them support a database against the cops Isn't that interesting ladies and gentlemen and they go around saying there aren't universal background checks to get a gun when in fact there are Like the idiot coach Steve Kerr going on and on
Devin Nunes Is Now the CEO of the Trump Media and Technology Group
"The left, the oligarchs of Palo Alto of tech valley said. Well, if you don't like Twitter, if you don't like Facebook, go and build something else. Well, guess what? President Trump, my former boss, your current boss said, okay, it is truth social my account is blowing up. I've got two, 3000 new followers every day at said go cron truth social super excited. If you look at engagement numbers, it's completely incomparable to Twitter. Let's talk about this sector that you're in charge of now for the Trump media and technology group. And the deal, it looks like somebody's going to try and clean up Twitter if he can, but now that we found out this deal from Elon Musk is stalled because of the question of fake accounts and bought accounts and that incredible news that seems to have sunk without a trace Devon last week, an independent corporation found that out of the 22 million followers on Biden's Twitter account half of them 11 million were bots. How is that possible? Well, look, it's kind of what I've been saying. And you know, I kind of walked into this, you know, I wrote about I wrote about this in my book countdown to socialism that I think we've talked about many times on your show. You were back in. I wrote the book and it was finished in July of 2020. And I was talking then in that book, essentially how you've got the fake news and then it funnels down into these social media tech tyrants and it's poisoning the American public. And that we were essentially, we had no ability to communicate. And at that point, I was one of the first members of Congress I was the first to go to go to rumble, which is a YouTube alternative. I also went to parler at the time before Bezos and the tech tyrants shut them down. So I watched what happened with just my engagement early on where I just, you know, boom, boom, boom, boom boom, just kept climbing and followers. So when president Trump, he didn't need a new company. I didn't need a new job. I was perfectly happy. Being in the Congress representing my constituents in California, but because of my knowledge of this and my concern for the American people, you know, I really had no option when Donald Trump asked me to do this job

Environmentalists Stand in the Way of Water Desalination
"What is done in my time with regard to water, what the left is done in California, drought, so it's a drought. And it is a drought. What do we do with the water that we have? And why don't we have desalinization? As they do in Israel. Let me see if I can quickly find out here. What percentage of water in Israel percent of water in Israel, the salination. If that should somewhat work, 55%. More than half of the water in Israel, according to this. Scientific American, it's just one of the many breakthroughs in membrane technology that have made desalination, but I'd say desalinization, it's desalination. Why don't you correct me, Sean? May be salination, the much more efficient. Israel maggots 55% of its domestic water from desalination. That has helped to turn one of the world's driest countries into the unlikeliest of water giants. Scientific American California is way richer than Israel. Why don't we build them? Because of the dam environmentalists.
Politics: It Ain't Personal, It's Just Business
"One of the things that I learned from you a little bit, but also I had known coming into this because from my background is people know, there's a certain time you have to use an especially with politics and I think it would be a good idea for Republicans, Democrats, anybody in between in campaigns that in the especially in the last weeks of a campaign or even in the first weeks of a campaign to remember the adage of Clint Eastwood, it ain't. Personal, it's just business. And because the motion side, we're going to come back and talk about some other things. But let's get the last four or 5 days. Isn't it? Describe how tough it is in those last couple of weeks to keep the emotion out of decisions that you need to make in those last 14 to 21 days coming into an cycle. So the toughest thing in campaign does, you know, these campaigns are tough, they're grinding, as you know, as any candidate that's run for office knows. When you get down to crunch time and you get down to the 7 or 8 day period, which is what we're in right now, you're tired, you're stressed. There's not enough hours in the day to accomplish what all you want to accomplish. And so it's very tough to keep the emotions out. I mean, for anybody that's been in this business for any length of time, they'll tell you, it's one of the toughest things, one of the toughest time periods there is. Now it's also, it's also, you know, the time in the campaign where you can really see the light at the end of the tunnel. So you know, you know, you're going to find out on election day, how you did. I mean, running campaigns and elections, being candidates, being consultants, being on a campaign team is unique. It's not like you can watch film on Tuesday, figure out what you did wrong and go have another election, the following Tuesday. And then, you know, and have a 16 game season, right? I mean, you know, depending on how long the election is, I mean, you know, they can be a year and a half a year and 9 months long. You have one game day. And so everything that you have done up until that point, you know, is to make sure you maximize what you're doing on

The Market Sell-Off Has Just Begun
"We got to get to this news on the market because it shouldn't be this way. All right, if anyone in Washington D.C. had half a brain over at the Federal Reserve or in The White House, we wouldn't be in the situation. We are in. Have I not been warning about this at najam for like the last year and a half, certainly said summer of 2020, I guess it's actually almost two years now. I told you, if you keep printing money, if you keep handing out checks, if you keep trying to put forward stimulus as Joe Biden did $1.9 trillion worth when he came to office, if you keep doing this, you will have mass inflation, the likes of which we've never quite seen. We're now at the highest level in 40 years, but just you wait. I have predicted double digit inflation on consumer prices, and I stand by that. I also want to point out that gas prices, which are currently at an all time high, could double by the height of the summer driving season, given everything that's happening. And there you get the Federal Reserve run into try and chase this thing, run away inflation is a very hard thing to
"half" Discussed on Half Hour to Curtain
"We're going to be sitting in that location in one of the things that the script coles or do we need a bed. We need a door. We need nothing and my basic instinct is to not put anything more on stage than the things that the script absolutely calls for. I being a little disingenuous to say that but if the script calls for door I don't really WanNa do more than a door. If literature one other thing that helped establish that location it depends on the play for sitting in one location for forty five minutes. Then I'll probably do a little bit more but one thing I I just can't stand is watching scenery. Change in a scene. Change can very quickly feel like a very very long amount of time. And it's important that the transition's GonNa be interesting and beautiful and feel like they have sudden dramatic import otherwise they begin to get in your way and and tread on you and getting from from Point A. To Point to point see through a show is is one of the most important things that I think about i. I have described set designers as the transformation of space over time. And that is sort of how I think of it. It's a volume of space that needs to emphasize an actor or actors. Depending on what size of play it is and as that space transforms from scene that needs to either be fast or slow or the pace of has to relate to sort of the pace of the play in helps establish the pace of the play. And it's important in general that means that it needs to be able to move fairly quickly so you're not waiting for things but sometimes you can have a very long transition back the interesting as well if it's appropriate to the play in that moment of the storytelling well and we're way beyond the time in the old days where they closed the curtain and there'd be a scene out in front in one while they're doing a massive seen change behind that's those days are over so important. Yeah and I still do that sometimes. It's a great technique. When you get there were moments in Princeton Broadway. That were set that way where we would we would have seen the next thing set up behind it and you do kind of wonderful reveal. It's it is to this day quite effective but audiences sort of quite honestly idea that you can't just do a little down on the Apron telling a joke although some try thank you said that your work always lies in simplicity in the Anthony. Last question you talked about using space for multiple different things and that everything ultimately is about working in the same space. Is that what you mean by that? I'm trying to think what I mean by that. I you know what I think I mean by that is. I don't like a lot of clutter on stage. Host of the time were there were all. There is a lot of clutter. I wanted to all kind of Meld together into a single idea right I feel like a set design. Ought to be kind of a single idea not an accumulation of details and I don't like it when when a set is just an accumulation of details. It feels like it all should meld together and you should be able to summon up a sense with the visual idea is it shouldn't be this and this and this and this it should be boom when thing and often that means not a lot of stock or not even sure what. I mean by that could really I I I do some very involves that a lot of things in in producers who pay for them certainly wouldn't wouldn't you know let me get away with saying they're all simple working on a set right now at Lincoln Center with Lupine that is conceptually. Very simple idea. It's it's sort of around volume of space that morphs into a couple of different things in the course of the show. But it's a sixty foot diameter twenty five foot tall volume of space And so that you never even though it's a it's a very simple idea. It's a massive construction and as much as I keep talking about. Changes need to be fast because actually show where we've got scenery Vince. Moving forty five or fifty feet sometimes in the course of the transition and even moving really fast. That still takes awhile. And it's it's a show that we think will will work well that way. But it's it's it's a little counter to what. I preach ended in when Nina. That's part of the adventure of it is seeing if in fact it works. It is exciting as we hoped that it will be. Who'd you look up to as influences for your work be whether they be set designers? Visual Artists Authors. Whoever they are are there particular. People that that have influenced you say Joe Millionaire I. His his renderings are gorgeous and beautiful and I have a few of them on my walls. I can't paint like that and so I'm immensely jealous of anyone. Who can you know all that said? I don't know that I my my style has much to do with his style. I just I but I do find his rendering tend to be kind of simple innovative and in that sense. I I do try to work that way. I really think the biggest influences have been some of the really wonderful directors. I've gotten to work with. Howell was a huge influence on me. James Pints started as a graphic designer. And he's very visually oriented and the shows that I've done with him have always been some kind of visual idea. That's a little off base in something that most directors wouldn't allow me to do and East so interested in the visual that he'll he'll do something that may be hard to say jacked. One was a nightmare staged a very hard exercise for him do now. Though ultimately it it it helped. Tell the story the process of putting it all together. It was very difficult and so I I loved working with him in that way. I've done a lot with Susan. Stroman in the past ten years and nobody tells the story dance the way the way she can do that consequently every time we go into a project you know. I know that that is going to be front and center. Whatever the visual part of the story in need to allow dance to to play out in allow her the tools and the space that she needs to do that one really wonderful experience Adler summer. I did much ado about nothing in the park for Kenny. Leon and I've worked with Kennedy maybe ten fifteen years ago. We've known each other for a long time. But we hadn't worked together in a while and so we were doing this show and his idea from the beginning was that he wanted to be set essentially in Atlanta in Modern Day. Our first conversation he said well at the beginning of their coming back from the war and I said okay. They're coming back from Iraq or Afghanistan and he said the war that's going on in the US right now and it's not for second and I thought you know what I'm you know I think of myself as sort of a woke guy but I'm a you know a straight white guy living in America right and if you're a black man living in America today you're watching people shut down for no reason around. Yoda where she'd make a bit of a war and it opened my eyes to something that I it's not the information hadn't been there for me. I had never thought of it. That way and in the play wasn't something that he beat over the head and you know the the soldiers coming basically felt like they were coming from some kind of a black lives matter rally or a slightly stylized version of that in the end he very carefully was trying to sort of tell the story with when he kept saying. I don't WanNa hit it so hard that it turns people off right on. I'm trying trying to thread the needle and sort of make his point without increasingly about it and knowing that the bulk of his audience we're going to be middle class white people. It was truly a case of theater opening my eyes to something that that had been there for me to see but I have never seen before in that way and it. It was deeply moving to me. The whole production was sort of deeply moving to me. And we talk a lot about theater being something that opens people's eyes and teaches them in Blah Blah Blah and. I feel like most of the time it doesn't you know it's nice when it does and even just having like an emotional reaction to it is nice. So much theater doesn't actually even elicit emotional reaction but for me to get to work on a show that actually changed me in a way. That way was was sort of extraordinary and meant a lot to me. You know I don't know if I could take. Never show is urged to emotional to for that kind of awakening but it. It's I think the red it's best. allows us to see the world through somebody's on somebody else's eyes and that's part of why just keep doing it as every show not always dramatically is that and not necessarily with political. Gatien's but every show can can allow you to see the world through some new set of eyes and that at its best. I think is what we're trying to do. Well I think that's a great note to wrap up on. Thank you for your wonderful designs. Keep them coming. Where is the Richard the second going to be reduced? I don't think I'm allowed to say at because it's not been announced. Get in trouble announced and you'll figure it out. I'm not sure that that's true. But I don't Wanna get point and say the Tri State area possibly yes. The Trident is the hemisphere. They wore it. Thank you so much for joining us today. And thanks for your time. It's a pleasure and honor and really great to talk to you too. Excellent thanks so.

I'm so excited to hear this. It sounds like it gave you your power back. Where are you might have felt powerless before that is exactly right. That's exactly right and both of them. Explain very eloquently currently between this higher brain and the lower brain and i don't want to go into it with great detail because if anybody's interested they really need to seek out these resources themselves because it's explained just right and they do both you don't provide ongoing support and a lot of free resources resources to that you know you don't even have to spend any money if you can't so i just yeah it really gave me my power back and it helped me to recognize recognize any those voices in my head that were telling me to be doing what they're saying and they're they're half lies. There have truth. I should say you know there's a little element of truth but then there's a big ohi and i could recognize the lies now and it was it was life changing yeah and catherine hanson just for those of you that are listening.

"Remember the bird group said I joined to lose weight with diet workshop, and I'm not exactly sure what happened to them. But they were very similar to Weight Watchers, and I was fourteen at the time. Honestly, when I look back at even some very old pictured, my family immigrated from Greece when I was nine years old. So some hold old pictures from Greece where I was eight years old family pictures. I'm. Got the end my clothes. And so, you know, I was overweight. I just don't know that I noticed it until I was a teenager in wanted to do thing about it, culturally who'd has just always been a part of my life. Whether it was a happy event a sad event. A blessed event food was weaved through out. So he was just one of those things I think over the last thirty forty years, I probably have lost about a hundred pounds lossing games, many many pounds. But over this last year, I joined Weight Watchers of just about a year ago, really thirteen months ago, and I've lost thirty five pounds. And I've got about ten more pounds to go. I think I think I don't know. I guess I'll know when I when I get there. But you know, it's interesting because I looked to the people all the time we talk about. Weight Watchers, and this is the time that they have joined it, and I thought to myself, you know, why didn't I do that before? Well, I didn't because it wasn't drastic enough. I did all of these things to take off the way. And that was the problem. I you know, I would take off the weight and then put on the way and take off the weight and put on the weight and a lot of times a little bit more. So that's kind of my history. Right. So I want to go back to your childhood for a second because you were in Greece. Correct. I was where you were raised. Yeah. Well below is nine years old. So I'm curious to hear obviously, that's a totally different culture than being born in America raised in America. What was the female body image that you felt kind of like was the standard, and how were women do you recall talking about their bodies that? Before you came to America. Do you? Remember anything like that? I don't I mean, I I don't think that it was as important to look a certain way into where certain things, and then when we immigrated here it was in the early seventies. And I came here and people were wearing miniskirts and go go, boo. And it was completely foreign none of that was happening. Just motherly saw kind of bodies. I guess is how I would describe it. And I remember a lot of elderly women in black wants their spouses passed away they would just wear black for the rest of their lives and our food. You know, our options were very different. And we we ate primarily a vegetarian diet didn't really have a lot of animal meat. We're just because we were poor it was special occasions. And then when we moved to this country. My dad got a job in a and the priest. Or of a port a thought factory. And so we a pork all the time. Once we were here, and it was the big thing in the beginning. So definitely there was a difference in how you saw women dressing how they kind of maybe viewed their body a little bit differently. And then you come to America..

"And often it's a struggle? Sometimes for them to come up with a mental. Why like why am I focusing on this last ten to twenty? But in this case, your Y is really about mobility and adding quality to your life by getting these opportunities to do things together, and that's a huge motivator. That's a really good one. So as you're progressing into this. What are some things that you are still needing? To work on refining new mentioned, the wine, and you did mention you're still going to a gym. So is this a traditional commercial, Jim it's not it's a semi private fitness studio. A run a class of people on one side of the floor. The side is semi private training or some personal training. There's off the four or five of us at different stations around the room. And each of us has a dedicated fitness plan that we're following written up by the owner and his lead trainer and they've done a good job of of taking care of me and my wife in the in our needs because we're both very different people. And we're frankly both heavier than the most of the people that are in that building instead of working out for a half hour twice a week for now working out for an hour to an hour and fifteen three times a week. But some of that's just stretching at the end 'cause we've got flexibility issues that they're helping us address. They've. Also addressed some of the exercises. I'm doing to specifically helped me in one of my new sound funds. And that is running. I took up running this spring with a group of like minded individuals who are not all skinny things, but like to get out on the road and puts the miles in. I'm not very fast. But I enjoy that group, and I enjoy the being outside and listening to the world as I'm moving down the trail. So ultimately, the fitness has morphed a little bit. But still it's interesting still getting a very small group environment together, which I think is sounds like fits you. Both very well. Yeah. I think if we had to get down and do burpee with the skinny people that that we might not get back up. Well, I know it's funny. I find that fasting because it always comes around January first a bunch of people joined the gym, I do go to a big box gym. And these trainers kind of put all these people no matter what their condition or what they're starting place. They all. All are doing the burpee es and the circuits, and I think to myself that person's eventually going to want to stop coming because it's very difficult. Like, I know how I felt it two hundred eighty pounds, and I wouldn't be doing burpee. I could barely get down the ground. Do a push up. Let alone a burpee, you know. And I think to myself they need to kind of segment out, those workouts and have something to allow those have less ability at this moment kind of ease their way into fitness. I've thinks that the personal attention is what's needed to keep people calm, but a lot of gyms rely on people not coming. So that they can just collect the mousse. I think that's a marketing decision yet. I've found that out after years of going that. Yeah..

"What do you recall is being the the whole back? The whole Beck would have been that the wasn't any fun, and it was just miserable. It was dieting was removing things and been not supplanting them with anything else. No substitute at it was sodas. No milkshakes. No burger and fries and just everything was cottage cheese pineapple, and that's just no way to go through life. But you know, since since the past year at least the past six months, I've learned that forever. It was a really long time. And if I want to be looking good forever, then I need to do things I can do forever. And that doesn't mean cottage cheese and pineapple let that means making small adjustments that have a lasting impact instead of huge adjustments and hope it sticks. I just had this discussion in our forums. With when lady she's like, okay, I need help planning. And I'm like, well, they make frozen burgers and fries in the freezer section by those by a couple of frozen pizzas. Have. Those on hand. She's like what I don't understand. I'm like, well, you live in the real world. There's gonna be times you can't make the cottage cheese and the pineapple right? And you're going to need to eat food. But if you eat them in your home, and you can control the portion then you can actually track it and do pretty well. But you're correct. If all you think dieting is gonna be is this horrific experience. You're not gonna wanna do it and the more you can modify what you like to make it actually work. The better you're going to do with adhering agree with that some of my attitude towards dieting came from the Weight Watchers at work program because of the leader we had and some of the players that I knew in that group. They were very draconian when it came to what could be included and how to count points. So maybe if you could have stepped in there and help guide him and say, hey, you know, what it doesn't have to be this way. Come to my house. We'll have some Turkey burgers will bake some fries. We'll have a good time. We'll talk about this. Or that would have been the way to sell them on it. You know? But you're right. You know, if you think it's miserable. And that's really what I hope people are learning here is that it doesn't have to be miserable. You do need a calorie deficit foreshore if you want to lose weight, but you can do that in a myriad of ways. Right. And so what are some foods that you may be at one point thought you had to give up that you and your wife are still eating. I know you did mention the lean burgers is there anything else that falls in that bucket for you guys barbecue ribs, we have a method of cooking. The ribs to take out very tender. And most of the fatty part has been broiled away. So that it's not on the me as reading it and other one is the occasional by chocolate. And we just came back from the vacation where I'd I'd given a little bag of chocolates from the town that we revisiting and manage to limit myself to the first day and one the second day. But top clips something that you can have if you just going to be doing it..

"The accountability consisted of weighing in and food journaling. And I learned how to food journal and. It never occurred to me that was something people could do once. We started doing that. I caught on pretty well. I learned where some of the empty calories were coming from and how to avoid them and across the next foot two years. I lost close to one hundred forty pounds. I got below three hundred pounds about Stover two years after starting at the gym. All right. So that's phenomenal improvement and did your wife have any changes as she was working at going to the gym with you? She did she dropped about eighty pounds in that same time period. She's had a little slide back, but she's still keep mad at she's got at least forty pounds of those eighty still off. That's awesome. All right. So you both are obviously changing eating together going to the gym together. Doing all this. And what's interesting is I'm assuming in this particular environment. You were well aware of weight regain as being a potential considering you know, Mark. Himself a gone on the biggest loser come off gain the weight. I'm sure he even talked about that. Right. This idea of we need to do things that are sustainable as far as our transformation is concerned. So were you finding that was helping you to be around other people who were in the fight doing the same thing you were day in and day out and seeing how they were living that lifestyle. It was wonderful to be in the gym with these people, even though we were impersonal trained in the general classes, they all all knew me by name on the knew about some my victories from posting on privacy spoke group, it was really supportive to have other people on the sand journey, and it was really instructive to see some people who retired from that gem. And then would come back three or four months later and even bigger than when they had come first time. So I was really aware of the possibility of weight regain if you're not paying attention, right? Yeah. And that's. That's obviously what my message here is we need to focus on this being sustainable maintainable for the long haul because it is so easy. I mean, let's be honest. You know, the world is really just not set up to support people who are trying to to maintain a somewhat healthy weight between convenience foods and all the social get togethers around food. It's just is part of what's in the culture. Right. And so we have to kind of be keeping our toe in the water of this is a focus this goal something we have to work on. So for you. You're down one hundred forty five pounds. I'm assuming you're feeling much better. I mean, we're you able to accomplish more physically than you were before. Much more physically along the way. I started walking just up to the corner and back. It was about just a half mile round trip. A little while later we thought a little path that we could get to from her house, and that's a mile and a half round trip. So I started doing that about once a week of king and getting out being active outside the gym Baid duress to my life. Go much easier. I didn't have to park in the closest spot work or the grocery store for departure anywhere. I wanted to and was starting to really feel better wearing smaller close I fit into an airplane seat in that hadn't happened since two thousand to see you were getting a lot of the non scale victories. Right. Just the physical movement the being able to get the seat on. And was there ever a push or thought like I need to achieve a certain way. Or were you feeling like okay have to get to the certain goal number? Or was this just I need to be. In a healthier place than I was before. Well, it was kind of accidental that I I've thought of a weight, and I thought of it for some of the wrong reasons it turned out to be a nice round number. And that is when I first lost seventy pounds. I then three seventy and I thought if I was another seventy I'll be at three hundred and if I lose another seventy that's the weight, I was on I met my wife in hundred eighty six and so two pretty sent in the back of my but still aways away for now..

I do have another medical condition, and I don't talk about it much because it's not doing much, but I do have a form of cancer called seed, El Al chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and it shows up his abnormal blood cells. But it started as abnormal bone marrow. And it showed up about the same time on my sleep showed up, but it was staged there. Oh, they could barely detect it. They just noticed that.

But in the stay did own narrow test and found that I've I've got some abnormal cells.

But we'll see if the new one says, and so you joined the gym it sounds like was it back in twenty twelve when you're at your highest. Is that right? Yes. Okay. Twenty twelve. Okay. And was there any changes made to your eating or how did your eating change over the course of the couple years that you you've been focusing on this? Well, this gym or club was more than just a place to work out in sweat, and they also have accountability. And they also did a some train your brain seminars.

"So in that moment, how did you process that information because I'm assuming you probably never thought you would get over four hundred pounds. I'm sure there's a thought process that you had never had. Occurred. The number was just not conceivable to me, I I knew my dad was heavy when I was growing up but house. No, he never got past two thirty or two forty so to be to be pushing double that as you know, just incredible. What was the recommendation by this wellness check in was this with a plan of something to do after? Did they try to help you? Or did you take that information and go elsewhere? They had a set of websites that we could go to download documents that would advise us on our conditions. But I found those to be different than what you can find say the male clinic site, for example, what really happened to get me actually involved in in losing weight is about a month later. I asked my wife what she wanted for her birthday. We both have birthdays in the same month. And she said I want a gym membership and someone to make me go. Well, we were out to dinner at the time. And when we. Came home. There was a newspaper article sitting on our countertop where my mom off and leaves things, and it was an ad not mad was a newspaper story about a local gym for plus size people. And so we went in and talk with the owner there and signed up, and it turned out pretty well from that point. And now his mardi right Mardian. Yes. That was I love it. And really I wish every place had one of these because I know for me at my heaviest walking into the gym for the very first time was again brought me back to that being in the gymnasium. Having to weigh on the scale like that fear factor when you went into that environment to did you feel any fear had you ever joined a gym before I had joined a couple of the major chains across the country. And it always seemed like I just either got bored of it or they would close location. It was convenient start giving me excuses to to not attend. Okay. And so when you went into this environment, did it immediately feel. Different because it was obviously geared towards people who wanted to focus on their health. Even if they had weight to lose, John it it did feel different right away. And in two ways one there were people there that were also plus size and working to improve themselves, and to the classes that they had were limited to six people and all the classes were full as a result of that newspaper article, my wife, and I had to sign up for personal training using the same trainers. But we were able to schedule a specific time that was not conflicting with their their large class time. And we treated it like an like an appointment by like, we tell the boss at work..

And I kind of accidentally mentioned it last week when I was telling you about Pamela and her breakthrough after taking the meal, planning course with buying the corn dogs on the fries. What I mentioned in there as we started releasing something really awesome in the half size me community. We we launched our very first edition. We are doing a magazine one of our community members had said, hey, how they're, you know, I really like this idea of getting a magazine that would have all the different focal points recipes meal plans, maybe having a featured member all that good stuff.

"Over again amongst women that had been through that process. I think I would have learned via that example, you know, but nobody was talking about it. Right. Like who talks about that? Who says when I was eighteen and I was one hundred seventy five pounds. I thought was huge. And now, I wait to seventy five had I been able to maintain one seventy five and just learned to be okay with that. I'd have been the cat's pajamas, right? I'd been fine. But nobody's talked. Nobody had those conversations. It was like one of those off topic. Like, nobody the older women never wanted to discuss weight or weight loss. Right. But I think I would have been as a young impressionable kid. I think I demand like, yeah. That doesn't sound good. I don't want to be in that boat. I don't think anyone was having that conversation. And that's what I'm hoping. We're doing here on the show is we're having that conversation, and maybe teenage kid is hearing this because her mom's listening to in the car, or we have a lot of twenty year olds that are coming on in finding community and listening and they're getting it. They're like. Ooh. Yeah. I'm learning from these women that are in their forties, fifties and sixties. I don't wanna be doing that. Right. And that's what we're looking for like, we could change this collectively by sharing these stories. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. And I'm so thankful for the stories because so many of them, you know, have led me to where I am now. And having the understanding that I do and being able to finally make progress. That's that's sticking. So yeah, I'm so thankful for all the stories, and I'm hoping that my story can help as well. Oh, absolutely. That's why I wanted to get you on the show because even though I know you're not at your old goal. And that's a lot of concern. Everybody has one that at my at my goal. Unlike even if you're at your goal, you're still going to have to fight every day to stay there. It's not like the fights over, you know. But why I wanted to have you on is because here's somebody who was really struggling with this one idea of how to manage your round around that time of the month. And you found something that's working for you. But you know, what you? Sharing that here gives another woman who's got the exact same struggle. The idea that maybe I should try that I should give that a go because what I'm doing isn't working, and it's not serving me, and I hear somebody else's having success. And we can all learn from each other. That's what's amazing. We don't have to be quote, unquote done. We just have to be a couple steps ahead of somebody else somewhere else and share what we're doing. So they can learn and get to that next level. Yes. Definitely love it. All right. So robin. Ultimately, you reached out you ask for help? I reached back. We're here. Now almost three years later. We've had this back and forth conversation for those people who want to reach out to you and ask you a question or connect with you. Would you be okay? If they emailed me, and I forwarded it to you. Yep. That's totally fine. And I just wanna say thank you so much. I loved hearing back from you. And you just were like, you know, what I actually took action the taking action piece as a former teacher you can teach all day long. But if nobody applies what they learn. It's kind of like, okay. No one's doing anything. You know? But when I get an Email back. This says, hey, I heard what she said. I did something with said knowledge and here I am. It's like the best thing ever. I mean, truly it is. And so I just want to say from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. So very much for that. You are very very welcome. I'm so glad I.

"Because that's just part of your body's way of retaining fluids around that cycle. So you have to let it play out and really kind of Icee for women about six weeks you need to give everything about six. Weeks to see if it's actually working in see if it's trending down over time. Get definitely definitely all right? So good advice. So basically, you know, and I love how you tied it back into the idea of time. Right. How much time have you invested doing the other one? It's probably not been working. If you haven't gotten the results, you want changing that up, and it truly is simplistic on the surface. But yet we get married to. But this is how I've always done it. Right. Yeah. I don't want to change. And it's scary to change. Yes. And I think another thing that I would add to that is that I mean, I don't I'm not a scientist. I haven't studied this phenomenon. As far as you know, how women are affected by their cycle and calories and all that. But just based on the data, and the fact that I am still losing even when I am bumping up to my maintenance calories five sometimes even seven days a week. Obviously. Would that tells me is that my body is? Actually burning extra calories. And that is like a legitimate reason for that extra hunger during those days. So that's another thing that I would say is that if you're if you're somebody that's noticing that extra hunger. There's probably a reason for it. You know? And would you say I'm just curious to hear your thoughts on this? There's the scared feelings around changing up what we're doing. But there's also the mental sabotage that happens where I think as women we feel like there's that hurry up. I should be there by now feeling and I shouldn't give myself permission to eat it maintenance because I've got all this weight to lose and all of this really nasty negative garbage. That goes on in our heads space that doesn't allow ourselves to properly care for our body. Did you ever experience any of that negative sabotaging talk? Yes. I definitely do. And how did you handle that? Because obviously you had to push through it or passed it or nor it to a certain degree. In order to execute the plan. So how did you start to make a little bit of peace with that negative voice? I just had to constantly remind myself to trust the process and to be patient. I it was really just constantly reminding myself be patient. It's going to end up paying off, you know. And it's it's something that I still have to burn my myself of. Yeah. It doesn't go away. It's just one of those. You've learned how to better manage it to where you can still work on what you need to work on. And it's not causing you to stop doing it. Yes. And that's step number one. I mean, the voice isn't going to immediately go away. But it's interesting when we're pregnant a lot times women can muster a lot of a lot more self loving care for themselves because they're pregnant they're carrying a baby everything is about the baby. But when our body goes through the cycle of having PMS, and the menstruation all that kind of stuff we tend to forget that this is the same body. That carried those children and without that process. We wouldn't have been able to do that. And maybe if we're just a little just like when we're talking about Perryman applause menopause. That's the other side of the cycle. Right..

"So it has dramatically dramatically changed my eating behaviors I feel like I'm allowed to have certain things. I feel like I'm allowed to have what I want to have as long as I stay within my budget, and then I actually lost weight, and it stayed off. So that's awesome. Yeah. It's either offer you're coasting. Right. That's the goal here. It's offer offered coasting and about how much roughly have you lost? Since you've started all this on have lost almost thirty pounds. So about twenty eight twenty nine pounds that I've lost right now. And that's in ten months, and let me tell you. I felt some days where I'm not that impressed with myself. I'm kind of down on myself because I'm like, you know, there are days when I compare myself to other people like oh my gosh. I could have lost so much more in ten months, but it's a new way of doing it. And it's working, and I know that the waves gonna stay off and that is a huge paradigm shift. Right. I mean that innovate self is hard to swallow. But here's the deal. You said you're thirty two now. Right. Yes. You have really been struggling with this since you were eight years old. I mean in all all truth. I mean, when you first did the herbalife that was the beginning of this process for you, right? Right. So it sounds like about twenty four years you've invested in doing it. The other way just to clarify eighth grade was when I did the herbalife. So I was probably third teen something like that at that age or that grade so more like let's say nineteen years. Yeah. Let's round into twenty twenty s a nice round number. Let's go at twenty twenty years you've been spending in that previous process. Right. The binging the more restrictive dieting, and ultimately in that time, you went from what sounds like would have been what you thought would have been your highest which was two hundred up to what was what was the highest. It was two ninety two s. Okay. So imagine let's reverse that lists per ten. First second this whole thing takes you five years. Let's just say you lose thirty pounds every year for five years that's a hundred and fifty pounds that I guarantee you if you take five years to do this. You're never gonna see again. Right. And if we compare. Five years versus twenty. That's a quarter of the time. Does that make sense? Yes. Yep. That's awesome. Yeah. So when when you really when you step back, and you don't allow emotions to kind of convince you to feel a certain way about comparison, which is horrible right comparison comparison. And when you actually look at it, mathematically twenty years invested in this one process that took me up ninety two pounds in the grand scheme of things over that that time period versus a possible five-year investment, which is a quarter of the time, and I could be down one hundred and fifty pounds. Which one would we rather have? And five years of investing and learning how to do this in a way that you could in fact, keep up with once you get where you want to go. Yeah. I love your mathematical thinking, and I love your mathematical comparisons. It's great. It just makes a motion go away. Right. It's like, oh, yeah. That makes sense. So ultimately, if you stay on this path, and you're losing about thirty pounds every year give or take a couple, right? You're going to be where you wanna be within five year timeframe. Yeah. Love it. So how's your husband reacted to what you've been doing has? He knows the difference usually husbands notice a difference around that time of the month. When when we're a little bit more gracious with ourselves what happened there he has noticed a difference? He has I mean, he's always been my biggest supporter, but it's funny. I think probably the biggest difference as he doesn't have to hide his snacks from the anymore. I would tell him bring your snacks to work. They can't be at home because I'm gonna end up getting into them because I was just so out of control..

"And I chose to just kind of dive in and listen to your advice. And and I decided I was going to just try to give myself a calorie deficit and it works for a while. But then I realized that I needed to tweak it a little bit. Because of just my hormonal fluctuations throughout the month. I was able to do a calorie deficit of three hundred day that wasn't to horrible for me. But then I got to the point where I was in the premenstrual phase of my cycle. And I was just so starving that I felt like I couldn't do the deficit. I just felt like it was impossible and I needed to eat more. But I felt bad about it. And then I ended up just eating even more because I thought that. You know, I'm already going over my calories. I might as well just eat as much as gonna satisfy me. So then I decided to reach out to you. I'm so glad you did. Because you know, it's funny. I had a coaching client who had that exact same issue. She was able to be compliant with her calorie target at least two to three weeks out of the month. But the week prior to recycle is actually a good three to five day span would one eat everything all the carbs, right? All the pizza all the things and she felt so guilty because she this is somebody who struggle with binge eating as well. And you know, that there's a lot of guilt that goes in with binge eating. And so would it was is she would eat off she'd feel guilt. She would binge for that three to five days. And it was it was causing her progress not to happen. And I finally said to her would if he actually just eat it maintenance, what if you actually plan in the pizza and the brownies and give yourself permission to eat. Those at maintenance calories. An issue is very resistant to doing it. But when she did she found she would coast through that week. She didn't lose anything, but she wasn't gaining crazy amounts of weight either. So for you when I made that recommendation, how did you feel about it when you made that recommendation? I was excited. Actually, I was like permission. I have the permission permission to eat a little bit more. And you know, I had already heard about I had known about maintenance calories. So in a way, I was excited. But I think on the other hand I was also hesitant because I was like, wait. I don't I don't wanna be in maintenance for five or for me. Maybe even more days every month because my progress it's going to stall for that many days every month. So I was excited, but also resistant toward it. But I was at the point where I was really willing to try it because because that was just a pattern that I had seen every single month. That no matter what diet I was trying to follow or. Matter what what kind of eating habits, I was trying to adopt. Even even now still I've really just cannot control my cravings. And I and my body's so driven by hormones that you know, there are days when I end up eating half of my calories and chocolate, but I track it, and I make through and I followed the maintenance calories, and I limit it to that. But yeah, I was definitely very excited. And scared when I first started it. But now, you know, it's it's what's working for me. And it's what I have to do. So let's just think about this mathematically first second, right? Let's just say we're going with the old way of doing it the five days of your cycle where you just say, screw it. I'm gonna eat everything. I'm not I'm assuming you probably didn't track. Is that correct? Before you were doing this maintenance calories things. That's correct. And I felt so guilty. I felt so guilty. I mean, I would have. Like a thousand calorie binges because of the hormones it was it was so bad. So let's just think about this really logically scrap emotion scrap hormones. Let's just let's just talk numbers right of the five days. You would have been having your cycle. Let's just pretend you're maintenance maintenances two thousand calories. I have no idea. What it really is bullish pretend legislates two thousand dollars, and you actually fairly will adhere to that two thousand calories for those five days. So you're not losing weight. You're not gaining weight. Right. You're eating at maintenance, you're maintaining your weight,.

How did you want to go back to the dieting at what I guess, maybe the better question say is at what point did you decide you weren't going to follow that protocol anymore that that Moore yoyo cycle dieting, and the obviously extreme extreme re repercussion of the binge eating. It took me a while. Because honestly, the next four years. I think the next four years literally flew by in two thousand fourteen is when I actually found your podcast. I started listening in two thousand fourteen and it was it was mind blowing like it was. I just couldn't. I was so amazed by the progress that you had made. I was so amazed by like listening to the stories of everyone that you had on in. I guess maybe you could say at that point. I was ready at least mentally I was so ready in. I really did think that two fifty was going to be like my max. And I and I was ready and I wanted to go back to my pre pregnancy weight, which which was a healthy weight..

"Shoes. I understand my first binge episode was when I was eight and so really food and weight have been a constant struggle for me. So keeping it off every single year is truly the best gift I've ever given myself. It is worth every ounce of my energy that goes into that process. It's so. Worth it for me to be here sharing this with you. Because if it's true for me, it's true for you. Now in this particular episode, I had the very distinct pleasure of talking to one of the listeners. Her name is Robyn she had reached out to me for help about two and a half years ago, and it was around her eating from her menstrual cycle, and creating overeating tendencies, and she is currently down thirty pounds when she reached out to me. She really didn't know what to do. And I offered her some suggestions that I do with my coaching clients. I loved this episode with her because she shares how she had invested twenty years and doing weight loss in a way that ultimate caused her to gain ninety pounds. And now, this more slow sustainable approach is actually helping her make progress, and she said that she was willing to learn how to silence her inner critic, so she can make choices that would actually create a different outcome. So I know you're going to get a lot of value from hearing from Robin. And I just want to encourage you Robin reached out to me. Two and a half years ago. Had she not done that. She might not be where she is today from the standpoint of she would just be doing the same behaviors over and over and over again sometimes in order to change that pattern. We have to take in a new idea a new thought and one of the things that I want to encourage you is to think about getting on her new newsletter. I am really working on revamping that twenty nineteen the big change is going to be the newsletter. And how I help you through it one of the things you will get is a mindset tip. So your mind is your most powerful tool, and if your mind is telling you to do the same things over and over again, yet, you don't get the results you want you need to work on refocusing your mind. So you get a mindset tip.
