Our Lady of Weight Loss


DROWNING in DRAMA

I’m STUCK, SWIMMING, DROWNING in My DRAMA and I CAN’T GET UP.
from Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach and Beliefnet Blogger.
Dear Our Lady of Weight Loss (and Janice), I am OUT of CONTROL. Honestly … OUT OF CONTROL. I did lose 21 pounds some time ago but have gained nearly all of those 21 pounds back. I Have NO CONTROL. I eat whatever, whenever. Please HELP! ~ Jess C.
Dear Jess, In order to permanently remove excess weight we need to change our internal landscape (I don’t mean move your stomach to a new location).
1. Watch and become aware of your language. If you say, “I am OUT of CONTROL,” you are out of control and reinforcing that belief.
2. Let go of ‘the WHY of it’. Asking WHY questions … “Why am I doing this?” “Why me?” may well yield an answer, but not necessarily a strategy to effect change.
3. Ask yourself, “WHAT can I do to move forward?” And then ask yourself “What else can I do? What else? What else?” Make a list of ten actions that can and will move your forward.
4. Stay out of the DRAMA. When you hear yourself saying “The problem is …” watch out! Your drama is fast approaching.
“The problem is that I can’t find a job, because I can’t buy a suit, because I don’t have the money, because my husband left me and took the piggy bank with him, because he was a misery … ” Got it? DRAMA drains our energy and moves us away from implementing positive change.
5. And finally for Jess and anyone out there who thinks that they are out of control … If there is no food in your mouth right now – you are back in control. If there is food in your mouth … spit it out … and you are back in control.
Spread the word (NOT the icing!),
Janice

Pat Farnack, WCBS 880 radio said that I was “profound.”
O, The Oprah Magazine proclaimed me a “kooky genius.”
And the Chicago Herald said that I may seem … “one French fry short of a Happy Meal, but when you think about what she’s saying it begins to make sense.”

    I have been babysitting for my 5 year old grandson. I have been giving him Kid Cuisine meals, and fun snacks. He’s small for his age, very thin, has a high metabolism, and needs the extra calories. Well, now I see why I gained 40 lbs when my kids were little. They eat part of the food, and leave the rest on the plate, and I start picking at the leftover. So today I found myself eating the leftover macaroni and cheese from the Kung Foo Panda chicken nugget meal. I stopped in mid bite, and realized that I would totally screw myself up if I did it. I put the leftovers under the faucet, and flooded it with cold water, and put it down the disposal before I did any more damage. I had to break the spell.
