Weight Loss Tip: Travel Survival Kit

Traveling with Janice by Janice Taylor
Sometimes you’ve just got to laugh … at yourself!
I’m headed out of town this morning for 2.5 days … woo hoo! I love packing up my little suitcase, rolling it and myself out to the curb and hailing a cab. I’m leaving on a jet plane!
Anyway, I packed last night. And this morning, as I added the last of what I’m taking with me and made a quick sweep through my bag, double-checking the essentials, I really had to laugh at myself.
My suitcase is stuffed with the following:

  • a small little plastic container of artificial sweetener (do NOT lecture me, please, about how it’s not good for me)
  • a big box of melba toast rounds
  • 6 tiny boxes of raisins (1 oz. size … they come in 1.5 oz. size boxes, but I stick to the 1 oz. size)
  • 6 fruit strips (from the organic grocery store)
  • 5 real apples
  • 3 healthy power bars (under 150 calories)

In addition, I made breakfast and packed it in my pocketbook. Two English Muffins with scrambled eggs! One for the airport while waiting to board; one for the plane before landing. Plus an additional apple.

  • 3 books (like I’m going to have time to read 3, but I don’t know what I’ll be in the mood for)
  • travel board games
  • i-POD loaded with self-help CD’s

The last time I traveled, I was so intent on bringing enough food with me and stuff to do at night, so I wouldn’t get into food trouble – no kidding – I forgot my pants. I almost did it again, but caught myself this morning and now, yay!! I have pants and underwear packed, too.
So, on the one hand, I am truly laughing at myself. I am a kooky weight loss artist, for sure! A fundamentalist dieter … an orthodox dieter. Call me what you like. Laugh with me, too. BUT, on the other hand, I permanently removed 50 pounds.
Is it worth the effort? You bet it is!
Join with me and lose weight HERE, Now! How much do you want to lose, get rid of, let go of, permanently remove? Leave your pledge below! Commit to yourself!!
And for extra support, join The Christmas Diet!
Spread the word … NOT the icing!

    Hi Janice,
    I am so down. I had the gastric bypass on February 4, 2008. When I went for my 3 week check up I lost 22 pounds. Now at my 6 month check up I have gained 7 pounds and my surgeon tells me I only have three more months to lose all of my weight before it plataues. I need to lose 100 punds. Help.

    The winner of the NBC show, The Biggest Loser, always takes home quite the payday, and this season was no exception. Michelle Aguilar went home with $250,000 this season, winning as the heavy favorite, beating underdogs Vicky Vilcan and Heba Salama. This season was an eventful one, as Michelle, during the course of the season, reunited with her mother who she hadn’t talked to in over 6 years, and then Heba was pitted against her husband Ed for third place. Ed, ever the dutiful husband, urged voters to vote for his wife. She agreed with his suggestion, and said that she deserved the win. Well, just like in Greek myths, the gods decided to punish her for her solipsistic display of hubris. Ed won 84% of the vote for third place. For more about “The Biggest Loser” finale and to find out who else took home a payday, check out this article.
