Lose Weight: How big is your ‘want’ power muscle?

Goddess of Lost and Found Pounds
Land of the Lost and Found Pounds by Janice Taylor, Beliefnet Health and Happiness Blogger
Once upon a time a chubby young woman was wandering about in the Land of the Lost and Found Pounds thinking self-deprecating thoughts when she ran into the Goddess of Forever Thin.
She said, “Hi Goddess. You are wise, and I am desperate. I want to lose weight once and for all. My triple X elastic waistband pants are tight and leaving skid marks.” (She showed her the marks.)
The Goddess asked, “How strong is your desire to permanently remove your excess weight?”
“Hey, are you kidding? Am I not in the Land of the Lost and Found Pounds, and did I not just show you my skid marks!” she replied.
The Goddess calmly continued, “Will you plan your meals, shop for fresh fruit and vegetables, power walk around the park at least three times a week?”
“Oh, dear,” the chubby young woman replied, “I just don’t have the time. I’m way too busy during the day and, at night, I am way too tired.”
“What personal sacrifices will you make to ensure that you will reach your goals?” asked the Goddess.
“Sacrifices?” she answered.
“Until you build your ‘want power’ muscles, you will aimlessly move up and down, in and out of the peaks and valleys in the Land of the Lost and Found Pounds.” said the Goddess.
Thankfully, the Goddess of Forever Thin then handed the chubby young woman a little pamphlet to read and digest, giving her much food for thought.

“The Goddess of Forever Thin’s Guide to Building Your Want-Power Muscle”

Think “I can” thoughts. Repeat after me… “I can. I can. I can.” You are starting to feel more confident, aren’t you?
Stay clear of the naysayers. You will undoubtedly find those who say, “You’ll never make it. It’s too hard. How can you live without cake 24/7?” etc. etc. etc.! Don’t let the naysayers embed their negative thoughts into your clear mind. Smile and move on, fast.
If not now, when? You have a responsibility to yourself, first and foremost. Tomorrow never comes.
Imagine! Yes, just imagine the level of satisfaction, pride, happiness that you will ultimately experience when you develop positive habits – when you believe in yourself – when you reach your goals.

New Point of View: Developing your ‘want power’ muscle will deliver you from The Land of Lost and Found Pounds to The Land of Forever Thin.

    Recently I was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis (fatty liver) and told that I am not metabolising food as I should. The cure…lose weight or die! My “want power” mantra has now turned into “I MUST”! This was a real “kick in the tush” for me and I will be using your books and motivations to literally keep me alive! Thank you so much!

    Ahhh! I have been working out and changing my eating habits for 4 weeks now and I’m on the very edge of getting discouraged. I’m running 5 miles a day and so far the only difference I can tell is that my arms are getting smaller. Which is fine, but I didn’t start this because my arms were big – I started this because my belly was starting to stick out past my boobs! I want my belly to go away! I don’t care so much about my arms! I want, but it’s awfully discouraging to be working out for an hour a day, five days a week, eating salads and guzzling water and not see the results you want. I don’t suppose I’ll stop, but I’m going to catch a bad attitude pretty quickly here if the belly doesn’t start to budge soon. :(

Hello Tushkateers,  This morning, I woke up with money on my mind.  It could be because this past Tuesday was April 15, Tax Day.  It could be because yesterday’s mail delivery was chock-full of bills.  Or, it could be because as I was drifting off to sleep, a lottery commercial was airing.  (
