Episode 165: Are You Making Your Health and Wellness a Priority?
IS your health and IS your overall wellness a priority in your life? Well… how can one know!? I’ll tell you! When I look at your lifestyle, the choices you make, the values you live by, the significance that your health plays in your life… I know. And so do others… by seeing how you treat yourself and how you take care of yourself… or not. And if you’re willing to be honest with yourself, you know the truth about whether or not you are prioritizing your health and wellness. In this episode, I ask some tough questions so you can assess how much of a priority health and wellness are in your life. If you’re talking the talk, but not walking the walk, then is your health NOT actually a priority OR is a lack of self-worth an obstacle? I also invite you to a FREE online Chat with Laura Preston and myself on March 5th, 2024 at 7:30 PM EST. Listen and get the details or go to my website, www.conniestapletonphd.com and sign up now!

Episode 164: The Un-Sciency Version of The Science of Vitamins
I’m gonna sound like everyone’s mother here for just a minute: TAKE YOUR VITAMINS! Not just any vitamin! TAKE YOUR BARIATRIC-SPECIFIC VITAMINS. And listening to Heather Mackie, a Registered Dietician who has worked in the bariatric field for over 18 years will hopefully be the reason you become the reason you never miss another day of taking your bariatric specific vitamins. The information in today’s video is some of THE most RELIABLE information you will get when it comes to Bariatric Vitamins because it comes to you from one of the most respected professionals in the bariatric industry.  In last week’s episode, Laura Preston mentioned she was had three to four-hour tutoring sessions about vitamins from a woman who knows bariatric vitamins, literally from the inside out! Heather Mackie is the woman who taught Laura all about the science of vitamins when they both worked for the same bariatrtic vitamin company. Laura and Heather will share with you how together they began a movement of sorts within the bariatric vitamin community that has benefitted all bariatric patients. Heather now works for ProCare Vitamins and will be helping them as they continue to provide quality products AND patient education. By the way, you can get 10% off your orders from ProCare Vitamins using the discount code CONNIE STAPLETON.  Now let’s listen as Heather and Laura give you information you will absolutely want to share with every bariatric patient you know!Resources:BariAfterare: www.bariaftercare.comConnie Stapleton PhD website: www.conniestapletonphd.comHeather Mackie Mackieh@procarenow.comBariAftercare website: https://www.conniestapletonphd.com/bariaftercareBariAftercare Facebook page (for members only): https://www.facebook.com/groups/BariAftercareInstagram: @therealbariboss (Tabitha Johnson)Instagram @drsusanmitchell (Dr. Susan Mitchell)Instgram: @lauraleepreston (Laura Preston)Instagram: @chefhealthyhenry (Henry Baker)Please subscribe to the show and rate it on Apple Podcasts, download free information at www.conniestapletonphd.com, and follow me on Twitter (@cstapletonphd), Instagram (@cstapletonphd), YouTube, LinkedIn, and on Facebook.

Episode 158: Get BariEDucated
For this episode I am joined by two amazing women who thoroughly understand the bariatric community. Kelly Broadwater is a certified eating disorder specialist with extensive experience working in the field of bariatrics. Chaundra Evans is a registered dietician who specializes in bariatrics and eating disorders. They have been working together to help hundreds of bariatric patients over the past 20 years and have recently published a book, aptly titled BariEDucated. While this book is geared more toward bariatric professionals, their work is with patients. These two women totally understand the bariatric population and, in addition to working with patients individually and in groups, they are reaching out to professionals in this book to help them learn and understand what patients want and need them to know about working with them! Listen in and hear the reasons I asked them to be guests on this podcast! You’ll love the work they do! I know I do!Resources:BariAfterare: www.bariaftercare.comConnie Stapleton PhD website: www.conniestapletonphd.comBariAftercare website: https://www.conniestapletonphd.com/bariaftercareBariAftercare Facebook page (for members only): https://www.facebook.com/groups/BariAftercareBariEDucated: bebarieducated.com and info@bebarieducated.com  Instagram: @therealbariboss (Tabitha Johnson)Instagram @drsusanmitchell (Dr. Susan Mitchell)Instgram: @lauraleepreston (Laura Preston)Instagram: @chefhealthyhenry (Henry Baker)Instagram: @cale101 (Caleshia Haynes)Instagram: @myweightishistory (Rob Dimedio)Busy Bariatrics: https://busybariatrics.com/Please subscribe to the show and rate it on Apple Podcasts, download free information at www.conniestapletonphd.com, and follow me on Twitter (@cstapletonphd), Instagram (@cstapletonphd), YouTube, LinkedIn, and on Facebook.

Episode 151: Passive-Aggressive Communication
Wait… What? There’s passive communication… we’ve gone over that. There’s aggressive communication… we’ve talked about that! What then, is passive-aggressive communication? I mean, passive communication and aggressive communication couldn’t be any more opposite? What’s up with combining the two into a category of communication all its own?! Passive-Aggressive communication. Yep – it’s a thing. A not-at-all healthy thing! Listen in and hear how this interesting combination of behaviors converge into one confusing, and one very unhealthy way of expressing yourself… again possibly leading to emotional eating and the ultimate result of that… the dreaded regain.

Episode 150: Passive Communication

Episode 150: Passive Communication
We’ve discussed the most healthy form of communication, Assertive communication, and we’ve discussed a pretty detrimental form of communication, Aggressive communication! In this episode, I’ll be explaining what is referred to as a PASSIVE communication style. Passive communication is another form of less-than-healthy communication and one used by a LOT of folks… namely those who “want to avoid conflict at any cost.” Sound like anyone you know? Sounds like a LOT of people I talk with in my work! Listen in and learn how to break yourself of passively communicating (which, by the way, sets you up to be taken advantage of, which can lead to feeling resentful, which can lead to emotional eating, which WILL lead to weight regain)… Let’s DEFINITELY avoid THAT at all costs!
