The Weekly Vlog

Explore by topic

Category: Susan’s Musings


Last week, I didn’t release a Vlog, and I believe that’s only the third time in seven years that I’ve missed a week. All three of those times have been for pretty much the same reason: life got so intense that the only sane thing to do was to give myself a break. I wanted to check in this week to explain a bit about what happened and how it relates to your Bright Line Eating journey.

From Sponsor to Guide

We have a lot of support structures in our Bright Line Eating community. There’s buddies, Mastermind Groups, and, up until now, something called sponsorship. Watch this week’s Vlog to hear why we’ve decided to change our terminology from “sponsor” to “Guide.”


One of the Bright Line Eating coaches recently suggested that I shoot a Vlog on marijuana because there are members of our community who are struggling with their use of it. I initially didn’t know what I’d say, but the more I thought about it, I realized I had some interesting points to discuss. Watch to hear them.

Comments on Our Weight

I’ve been a regular at a local Thai restaurant for over 20 years now, and, more than once, a waitress who knows me by name has remarked that I’ve gained weight. I decided to record a Vlog about it because as we progress along our weight-loss journeys, we will all likely get comments about our changing appearances. Watch to hear my thoughts.

None Is Easier Than Some

The other day, I was out to dinner with one of my kiddos, and after we ordered, a bunch of NMF (Not My Food) was brought to the table while we waited for our meals. I decided to have a small taste of the parmesan cheese sitting in front of me, and the experience that followed is probably one you can relate to. Watch this week’s Vlog to hear all about it.


As 2022 began, I saw a prompt online from the New York Times asking me if I wanted to see the most-read articles of 2021. And I did. It turns out the most popular article was an op-ed called “There’s a Name for the Blah You’re Feeling: It’s Called Languishing.” Watch this week’s Vlog to hear my thoughts on the topic and why it resonated with me so deeply.

Optimize Your Purpose

When people do Bright Line Eating, we aim for them to lock into a rhythm of eating that helps them lose their excess weight, stabilize at maintenance, and create such automaticity with their food that they unlock the human potential buried under all the weight. But then…what’s next? What do you do with the huge amount of space that’s freed up when the food and weight problem isn’t there anymore? Watch this week’s Vlog to hear my thoughts.

Food Policy and BLE’s First Op-Ed

Welcome to the first Vlog of 2022! This year, I’m committed to being more publicly vocal about topics like food addiction and the types of programs that will be successful in treating it. I’ve been on TV a few times a week for the last couple weeks, I have a ton of podcast interviews scheduled, and…I just published my first op-ed piece! Watch this week’s Vlog to hear all about it.


The Vlog is early this week because today is a very special occasion. Today is the publication day of BLE’s third book!!! Rezoom: The Powerful Reframe to End the Crash-and-Burn Cycle of Food Addiction is finally available in bookstores everywhere. If you pre-ordered, has it arrived yet? If you haven’t, there’s a convenient link to order below the Vlog. This book has a huge job to do in the world right now, both in our BLE community and beyond. Watch the Vlog to hear all about it.

Creative “No, Thank Yous”

It’s been a long year, and we’re in the midst of the holiday season right now in many parts of the world. In this week’s Vlog, some participants from our Bright Line Holiday course make surprise guest appearances to share their best tips for how to say “no, thank you” to any food you might be offered. During this time when so many festivities revolve around eating, having a few quick and polite responses at the tip of your tongue may be just the thing you need.
