SAY WHAT? Student Refuses To Be Weighed; Sent to Principal

Your GAIN is My PAIN, Call me! ~ Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Did you hear about Ireland Hobert-Hoch, the student from Southeast Polk Junior High in Pleasant Hill, Iowa, who refused to get on the scale to have her height and her weight recorded and was promptly sent to the principal’s office?

According to the Des Moines Register, as part of the FitnessGram program, Ireland’s class was having their height and weight measured to calculate their body mass index (BMI).

Ireland said that she didn’t feel like her weight was the school’s business, and her refusal to have her weight evaluated in front of the class inspired other girls to follow suit.

I wish that Ireland had been in my class or that back in my day I’d have had the courage to say “No!” to that type of humiliation.

For you see, when I was weighed and measured in second grade we girls were told to strip to our underwear, stand in line, and wait our turn on the scale.

I remember it well. The school nursed who frighteningly towered over all of us bellowed, “Next.” I approached the official doctor style scale and timidly climbed on. The nurse fiddled with the iron weight and once it held steady, she roared for all the world to hear, as her very quiet assistant charted it for the official records, “Taylor, 112.”

There I stood, not so tall, seven years old, 112 pounds. I was the fat one. “Next.”

I understand that Principal Daily with the school board will be discussing the matter at an upcoming meeting, at which time they will decide whether to continue weighing children.   My vote: A Big FAT NO to weighty shame and humiliation!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: How to Lose 10 Pounds in 3 Minutes?

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

Tushkateers (members of the Kick in the Tush Club), devotees of Our Lady of Weight Loss, How would you like to drop 10 pounds in 3 minutes? “Impossible,” you say. Short of chopping off your head, you are right. But you could look 10 pounds thinner in 3 minutes or less!

Here’s how:
Wear clothes that fit and go monochromatic!

If your clothes are too tight or too loose, then trade them in for clothes that actually fit. You will look a whole lot thinner. And then for a longer, leaner look, wear just one color from head to toe.  To add a layer of interest, try a nice mix of textures. Cashmere, suede, velvet, soft wool—all delicious!

Other “thinning tricks:”

Deep-six the ruffles and the pleats.
Make sure that your skirt is longer than it is wide.
Hemlines should hit the narrowest part of the calf.
Wrap-around skirts can effectively camouflage bulging stomachs, hips and tush.
Single-breasted jackets are better than double.
Tight belts and hidden pockets add bulk and attention to the midriff.
Wide-bottom pants widen, so go with straight-legged pants.
Wear hosiery the same color as your shoes.
And then…there’s always control top pantyhose and Spanx.

Sometimes it’s that simple!

Enjoy feeling svelte, thin, and slim in your ruffle-free, belt-free, monochromatic outfit!

Thanksgiving QUIZ: How Ill-Mannered Are YOU?

You Can Never Lick Cake by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert, Author, Artist, Positarian

You Can Never Lick Cake by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Weight Loss Expert, Author, Artist, Positarian

Dearest Devotees of Our Lady of Weight Loss, Tushkateers and all who have mysteriously landed on this page, as Thanksgiving is around the corner and you and your families will be gathering around the dining room table,  Our Lady of Weight Loss thought it would be fun to know, “How Ill-Mannered Are YOU?”

After she did a bit of research on etiquette, she was shocked to learn that her family (as in my family) is made up of a bunch of ill-mannered heathens. And, if I were to be perfectly honest, I’d have to say that I’m in violation myself and therefore, not a candidate of the Emily Post Manner Award.

How does your family measure up?

The Rules of Etiquette
One should …
* arrive at least 10 minutes early unless otherwise specified. (Whatever happened to fashionably late?)
* pass food from the left to right. (So if someone is on my left, should I pass it around the table?)
* pass both the salt and pepper together, even if only asked for one of them.
* place food item directly in front of the person asking for it, rather than handing it to them (hand-to-hand). (No tossing the roll across the table and saying ‘head’s up’)
* never even think to grab a roll out of the breadbasket as it’s being passed to someone else. (Are you kidding? I’d never get a piece. It’s every man for himself here.)
* serve food from the left; remove from the right.
* put the butter or spread on your plate before you spread it on your food. In other words, do not take butter and directly spread it on the bread.
* scoop the food away from you. (I do that with soup, but I didn’t know you’re supposed to do that with all food!)
* taste your food before seasoning it.
* never blow on your food to cool it. If it’s hot, you just wait for it to cool.
* keep elbows off the table. Keep your left hand in your lap unless you are using it.
* not talk with your mouth full. Chew with your mouth closed.
* cut only enough food for the next mouthful. Eat in small bites and slowly.
* not blow your nose at the dinner table. Excuse yourself to visit the restroom. (What if I have a cold? I might spend the evening in the restroom.)
* wash hands before returning to the dining room.
* cover your mouth if you cough with your napkin to stop the spread of germs and muffle the noise.
* not use a toothpick or apply makeup at the table. (Even we’re not so uncouth as to apply make up at the dinner table, especially the boys.)
* stand when a woman leaves the table or returns to sit (For the men). (As if!)

Emily Post ” . . . . manner is personality–the outward manifestation of one’s innate character and attitude toward life.”
How ill-mannered are you?

Feel free to print and bring to your Thanksgiving dinner!  Big Family Fun, hey?!

Spread the word–NOT the icing!
