Motivational Monday: Quick Weight Loss, 5 Pounds Thinner!

Want to look 5 pounds thinner, be more confident, sound better and feel happy? Just stand up straight – it’s that simple.

Look 5 Pounds Thinner NOW!

Good posture instantly takes off 5 pounds!
Stand erect and your clothes will hang gracefully on your body, you’ll look five pounds thinner, and you are sure to feel more confident.  If you don’t believe me, take a look around the office, the cafeteria, the department store, or the line at the grocery store. Notice how people sit at their desks, how some hunch over their meals, slouch, stoop, droop, slump, sag and hunch!  Who looks more confident and elegant? (No need to answer!)


In addition to looking better, you’ll sound better. When you stand straight and maintain good posture, your chest stays open on the ‘exhale,’ your diaphragm automatically opens and rich, mellifluous tones emanate from your throat.

The way you stand greatly influences your state of mind.
Happy people tend to stand up straight.  Depressed people tend to slump.  And happily, if you are feeling depressed, you can change your state by standing and breathing deeply and fully. Just the physiology of an erect body, sends happy signals to the brain.

Look 5 Pounds Thinner Today!
1. Stand tall and erect!
2. Speak in rich tones.
3. Smile.
4. Breathe.
5. Appear 5 pounds thinner!


Here’s a simple exercise that can help you to stand tall and walk gracefully with confidence:

1. Place a book on top of your head.

2. Place one leg in front of the other and be sure to keep your head elevated and your neck elongated (pretend you have the neck of a giraffe or an elegant swan).

3. Move your arms in the opposite stride of your legs.

4. Walk back and forth with the book on your head.

5. Focus!  Straight ahead for a straight posture.

6. Feel light.

7. Be ‘lite!’

Spread the word … NOT the icing,
