Ever since my early 20s Wayne Dyer has been a voice in my head guiding me. I thought of him as a wise elder, his earliest cassette tape recordings were unquestionably a touchstone.
“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” – Wayne Dyer

Inspired by Wayne Dyer and his conviction to his own 40 day Bikram yoga challenge, I joined in with my own version. Forty four days before my 44th birthday, a devoted and desperate yoga challenge. It was early 2016 and I needed to make big changes and I heard yoga will brighten your day and prepare your mind to enter a calm and relaxing world of blessedness…. aah yes, bring on the good feels.

So it began, yoga every day – sometimes twice.

Boy was I wrong!!

I freaking hate it, I hated it. Constant mind racing, tense muscles, and fighting the urge to bail in every class. Yoga was not the answer, and practicing an extra long savasana was the only solution to get through the forty four day battle. Finally deciding yoga was the problem, yoga was simply a no go- nope yoga was not for me.

Of course as a strong woman with fortitude and intelligence I thought I knew how to deal with this wild outrageous awkward awareness. Guided by the spirit within I tried to make good decision. I had to grant myself permission to give the deepest love, kindness and grace with selflessness and servitude and forgo yoga.

The quest didnt just start with combining full forced love of yoga and a deep desire to create a bigger relationship with my body. Soon realizing there was just no finish line to this race, even with as much effort as learning to love and accept unconditionally, it was easy to invent new things to hate. All of this felt hopeless and painful.

To feel bad about one more fiasco was surely not an accident.

The dream of being a blissed out yogi was history but still a divine blessing as it may be.

So let’s get to it.

Always genuinely en route to the truth, pursuing peace or a light in the dark, pining for a pioneer or way shower, my Wayne Dyer yoga trail wasn’t it, but why not persevere?

Everything else – the rainbows, the unicorns, the world of blessedness – will come eventually.

Forging ahead humbled, deciding to just stick with what works. Meditate, pray, make a vision board, get another dog?

We’re complex beings, and clearly we can’t address just one isolated problem with a magic bullet solution and hope to make meaningful lasting change. There for one must continue on more persistent and determined. The most important thing about stopping, is starting again. Meditation has always offered plenty of goodness.

But only if you start. Just like how climbing a mountain works.

Introducing Bright Line Eating. How it Works.

Because of agony in the yoga exploration, through meditation freedom and healing showed up.

Then very subtly, just like the way clouds sometimes just break up, something started to sort of dissolve, and as it dissolved, it started to be more quiet and clear. Cosmically birthed –Bright Line Eating materialized. A scientific solution for food addicts to help simplify and find peace, vitality and clarity.

No more lollipops and bubblegum folks, the statistics are dreadful. The demographic points to more than 2/3 of our population, people everywhere are overweight or obese. Literally, every 1 in 3 people are on a diet. Top that off with the average dieter makes three or four attempts each year. But less than 1% of these attempts lead to sustained and successful weight loss. Research has found  that people who have distinctly addictive brains that are high on the Susceptibility Scale can’t have “some” sugar, or “some” flour. No wonder we are so afraid to get our hopes up!

Bright Line Eating is substantialized formula based in neuroscience to achieve weight-loss long-term! Declaring the most successful weight loss program on planet earth. Long-term data will take decades to come in, but so far Susan Peirce Thompson has a program that is generating results that have never been seen before in any documented weight-loss related program.

Bright Line Eating would take guts but I had get going. Godspeed, the reality of how life changing it would be to follow a logical scientific path through this complex and arduous, even convoluted pledge to restore wholeness began.

Ancient wisdom for modern times.

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” ~ Rumi

One of the comments from my massage therapist that comes back to me a lot, she said (and I’m paraphrasing here) that when you’re having trouble making a decision, there’s often a lot of noise in your head around it. But when you finally make that right decision, suddenly it goes quiet. I remember that comment really resonating with me at the time.

Feeling barely qualified to take another precarious plunge into self-love and discipline, this exact experience emerged. Disappointment and at times feeling cheated by the universe… while battling mistrust and fear of failure, faith restored from darkness and through the toughest times, even after a series of rock bottom moments, for the first time the noise in my head was quiet.

There it began,  finally a holistic approach to total life mastery.

Today, for the first time, I really don’t think about my body much. But maybe this is undermined by the fact I am currently thinner than I have been in my adult life, literally 30 years.

Personally, I made a great choice. Bright Line Eating is the most effective weight loss program in the world and accumulating the real life data daily to prove it.

But it’s not always easy to make the right choices. Some are easy, and some… not so much.

Grow into your greatness

Remember the disaster with yoga when I divorced the dream of perfecting poses and abandoned my mat? Well, in early 2017 ( newly graduated boot camp turn Bright Line Eating lifer) I attended a beautiful retreat for some R&R. The agenda mentioned exercises that would clear the body’s energy, calm the mind, boost our vitality, and relax our souls…. in particular Yoga!! To my demise this part of the retreat was not noticed prior, nor optional. Devoted to the moment, with an open-heart I surrendered to an incredibly powerful, loving intention and adoring practice, in an instant I learned I hated yoga less when I hated my body less.



Seven Steps to Developing Growth

The thing is, we are not always going to know which one is the “right” decision. But it’s not really about being “wrong” or “right”… every so often those pebbles of “wrong” lead to a rock-solid plan.

Your view of yourself can determine everything, get the foundations in place first. This both propels us and prevents us from fulfilling our potential. Changing our mind has a powerful impact.

  1. Everything is Possible- Dream big, be creative, expect great results and keep going
  2. Passion First- Pursue your authenticity and deep interests
  3. We Are Connected- Explore harmony in all relationships and empower one another
  4. 100% Accountable- Be responsible for your happiness and success, and even your failures
  5. Attitude of Gratitude- Be thankful
  6. Live to Give- to serve others with your certain kind of greatness
  7. The Time is Now- Your power is in this moment, be deliberate and make meaningful choices

Our ideas about risk and effort come from our mindset. Some people realize the value of challenging themselves, they want to put in the effort to learn and grow. In the modern world resources to maintain you can unstick the places you’re stuck, unblock the places you’re blocked, and become the best possible version of YOU.

If you’re ready to get into a real practice that’ll shake out the crazy and bring you back to your true nature, then you’ll want to watch this video. Trust me on this.

This is the beginning of a journey that can be considered a homecoming. You’re better when you’re whole — you spinning out of control doesn’t serve your health, your future, or your family.

The success of this planet needs you.

YOU need you.

Come join me in this beautiful science where we’ll get into the mindset and help you find the person you’ve always been destined to become. The rest of your life will be positively affected by this decision. It’s time to show up for yourself.

Bright Line Eating is the most successful weight loss program on planet earth. I promise.

    Hi Kathleen, thanks for post. I too share your dislike of yoga. I just don’t get it and it does not work for me at all. However, as I’m getting older my body is changing and I don’t like it. I feel fat and sluggish all the time, and I eat quite well. That said, I’m also just also just trying to accept that my body will naturally change as I get older, and that I am worth more than whether I still feel comfortable wearing a bikini. Just trying t reconcile it all in my mind and be happy with who I am.
    Thanks Kathleen. I’ll be visiting your site often x

  • Melinda

    I’m still a bit confused about the Bright Line Eating. What is the concept behind it? It is a formula based in neuroscience? Is this a product or a way of eating?

    • Kathleen Milligan

      Thank you for the message! Yes, exactly, a formula based in neuroscience. The program is developed by and for food addicts. Bright Line Eating is offered through purchasing a 14 day challenge, or you can join Bootcamp or buy the book. Have a great day my friend!!

      • Manika-Nia

        Hi Kathleen,

        I would like to know more about it as well. After the 14-day bootcamp, is bright line eating something that one can continue doing or is it something that one does once? How much would one expect to lose?

        • Kathleen Milligan

          Thank you for the awesome question! Because Bright Line Eating is a formula to help recovering food addicts. The foundation is based in abstinence from certain addictive foods and only 3 meals/day. This is an excellent protocol for weight loss but for the majority following this program it has to be a full lifetime commitment for long term health or it becomes a series of loss/gain, relapse and recovery. The plan estimates the 1.7-2.5lbs loss/week. I appreciate getting to know you, thank you for connecting.

    This has really given me an real avenue that i should take in terms of my weight loss journey,i am a very lazy person and for sure weight is catching up with me especially the belly fat! Its becoming bigger and bigger and the convidence in me is diminishing with time, Thank you so much for introducing brighter line eating. Very sure it will help me thank you again

    • Kathleen Milligan

      Thank you for this honest message!! I am happy to report that the foundation of the weight loss component with Bright Line Eating is recommending no exercise!! Seriously!! You can check out this blog post for the science behind why!! I hope you are inspired and your can get that confidence back on track!! Much love to you!

  • Melissa

    Great post here. I am also not a person who is a fan of yoga so I understand where you are coming from haha. I’ve also struggled for so long trying to lost weight that I need a new form of mindset to stay motivated and your post has definitely pushed me in the right direction. Thank you so much

    • Kathleen Milligan

      Thank you Melissa! I am so happy we connected. It is a good direction, I promise!! All the best my friend!

  • Alenka

    Dear Kathleen
    I find your writing and your story very inspiring! Would love to find out more about the Bright Line Eating program, so I’m going to come back to your blog to read the other posts.
    How right is your massage therapist?!? It is exactly like that. I never thought of describing it in that way, but it’s so true. Once we make the right decision, everything else (including other people’s opinions) just fade into the background, and you know you are going to be ok.
    I also, very much agree with the fact that we need to be responsible for our own happiness, success, and failures. Taking the responsibility and hopefully learning something in/from the process, makes all the difference between feeling lost and finding your feet, especially, when the times get tough.
    I have been trying to lose some weight for the past year or so, but it has not been going well. Bright Line Eating very possibly holds some answers for me and how to go about it!
    Thank you for introducing BLE to us who have not heard of it as yet!

    • Kathleen Milligan

      Alenka you are so amazing! I really love how much you get this, it makes me so happy to know my audience is JUST like me!! We are all doing our best, although as a community of way finders it is great to have each other as resources. Super success to you and the journey forward, many blessings!

  • Ivan

    Hey Kathleen.
    Thank you for this amazing post. I will always listen to the advice from someone who has more knowledge and experience that I do. This is, for me, the only true way to grow. You have said, and I quote ” I learned I hated yoga less when I hated my body less.” This is our self-image in work. We cannot become happy if we see ourself sad, we cannot be healthy if we see ourself ill, we cannot be wealthy if we see ourself poor. I like how you have gone through a change of your self-image with the help of this program.
    Thank you once more,

  • Susan Carter

    What a beautiful and enlightening post. As a person that teaches meditation and the power of words, I find this article to be so very powerful. Keep up your good work. Love yourself deeply inside and out.
    although i personally don’t have the overweight issue, I still clicked on the links to see what it was all about Congrats beautiful woman

    • Kathleen Milligan

      Thank you beautiful friend! I love your amazing attitude and your willingness to be curious. I appreciate your encouragement, much gratitude!!

  • Nicholas

    We are so diverse that what works for person, may not do well another. I am always open to hear about “new” weight-loss programs. Although I may not use a program I know about, I can bring the awareness to someone it may help.

    Thanks for sharing

    • Kathleen Milligan

      Absolutely bang on Nicholas!! Spread the good word my friend!! We are all in this together. Thank you for stopping by!! Much happiness and success to you!

  • Emonne

    I love this, it’s so motivational and inspirational. It really resonated with me because I too am not happy with the way I look at the moment. However, I have recently realized that nothing will change if I keep complaining and putting myself down. I have to get up and do something about it. This really makes me want to stay committed to my journey of self health and mindfulness. Your story is a great example of realization and change.

    Thank you for sharing your story!

    • Kathleen Milligan

      You are such a beautiful soul. I am here to answer any questions or help in what ever way you may need to get the happy back!! Reach out anytime!

  • Sammy

    This is an amazing article, full of information providing so much food for thought! I really enjoyed reading it. And I can relate to your yoga experience. I tried it many years ago but decided it was not for me. It was also very interesting to read about Bright Line Eating. What I like about it in particular is the fact that it isn’t just a ‘starve-yourself’ diet, but a sustainable program and a lifestyle choice. Although I’m not obese, I always try to find a well-balanced diet that harmonizes body and mind. I really like chocolates and sugary food, but only feel great whilst eating it, not afterwards. If I understood it right, those cravings for chocolates and sugars will stop with the help of Brigt Line Eating. So I should definitely give it a go. Can I start at any time or are there any points to consider – e.g. is it okay to start before a stressful week or month or is it better to start when you are generally well rested?

    • Kathleen Milligan

      Hello Sammy!! Sugar is not your friend my friend!! Wow!! Thank you for this comment, especially since you are not overweight. Our brains are wired differently and if you are craving sugar but feel crappy after then for sure you can feel better off of it… the best time is when you are ready, with not a lot on your plate and you have time to rest. It can be treated like rehab! Take it easy and drink lots of water and herbal tea. Contact if you have any questions, I am here to help!

  • Miranda

    Hey Kathleen, what a great post! You have made me realize that I need to get off my butt if I want to achieve greatness! I have been struggling with weight loss for awhile, but now I will take your article into consideration and start to better myself. Thank you!

    • Kathleen Milligan

      I am so happy to hear you are inspired!!I am proud of you for taking the step towards success. Take it one day at a time and reach out if you need support or have any questions.

  • Barbara Kramen-Kahn

    “in an instant I learned I hated yoga less when I hated my body less. Tada!!” Profound awareness, profound statement. Self-love in progress. Congratulations with your success.

  • Veronica Robinson
