Living to 100, Our Lady of Weight Loss’s mother, Harriet Taylor (94 years young; sure to live past 100) shares her anti-aging secrets! Amazingly young and active, an inspiration to us all.
Top Ten Longevity Tips Straight from the Mouth of The Almost Ancient Wise Woman
1. Surround yourself with friends. The ones who are still living.
2. Read all the time; romance novels primarily – with happy endings. I’d prefer to read about sex. I’ve looked around, and believe me, reading about it is better than doing it with what’s available.
3. Watch news only once a day, or I’d be stark staring mad.
4. I don’t bother my children. I’m the ideal mother. I don’t haunt them. I would never come uninvited, even if you lived one block away.
5. I don’t over eat, but I don’t eat health food like you all do.
6. I have a good disposition. Don’t get depressed. Sad here and there, but don’t let it carry into my every day life.
7. Watch television selectively. Not all day long. Particularly like Oprah, tremendously. Don’t you?
8. That’s enough? Isn’t it … oh, I’m not a big shopper – don’t buy a lot of clothes. I manage to look all right.
9. Keep sadness out of my conversations with friends. Focus on what’s good in life. Should one of the ladies get maudlin, I change the topic.
10. You want to know what my big trick is … my ‘secret’ to living long? Don’t die! (peels of laughter … she cracks herself up.)

People write me and say that they stay happily on their ‘healthy lifestyle path,’ until the sun goes down. That’s when the demons (Halloween or not) come out in full force, tempting, teasing and pulling them mindlessly into the kitchen. Mindless – the operative word here. They awake from their stupor covered in crumbs, and they wonder, “Where did my focus, determination and resolve go? Who was that alien that took me over?”
KICKOL-LOGO.jpg
Mindless eating occurs primarily at night, after dinner, when – after a long, sometimes difficult day – you sit down and relax. What to do? Understand it and plan for it!
Here, Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Coach and Our Lady of Weight Loss, the patron saint of permanent fat removal (she who guides her), give you:
10 Ways to Curb, Conquer and Control Nighttime Eating
1. Awareness First. Nighttime is often a vulnerable time of day. You might be tired. You may have said, “No, thank you,” numerous times throughout your day, and you’re worn down. It could be, more likely than not, that this is the first time that you are able to focus on your personal life and it’s bringing up anxiety. Know that you are not alone. We could all (me especially) blow a day of healthful eating within 10 minutes of nighttime snacking! Just knowing what to expect is helpful.
2. Keep Low-Fat, Low-Cal Snacks on Hand. It seems that our evening meals and snacks are higher in fat than breakfast or lunch, so it is especially important to make healthy nighttime choices. Perhaps some air popped popcorn, or a 1/2 cup of low-fat ice cream, or a little bit of protein.
3. Late Night Tea. Brew yourself a pot of delicious, decaffeinated tea and make it your end of night ritual. Nothing passes through your lips after the tea!
4. Get Creative. Like to knit, crochet, and/or cut & paste? Keeping your hands busy is helpful. The trick is to set up your ‘craft’ ahead of time. Just like you plan your meals; plan your after dinner activity. If you don’t have the yarn and crochet hook right there, next to the sofa, you are likely to take reach for food instead.
5. Get Busy. Many people eat at night because they are bored. Take a dance class or join a book club. Make your nights fun and interesting. Get out of the house!!! Socialize.
6. Turn Television Commercials Off. If seeing food is a trigger, mue the food commercials, switch the channel or turn it off!
7. Eat Breakfast. One study after the other shows that those who skip breakfast end up eating more calories by the end of the day.
8. Take A Breath. Step outside and breath some fresh air for a few minutes.
9. Stretch It Out. If you are watching TV, stand up, sit down and shake it all about! Get on your stationary bike or the treadmill.
10. Play Musical Chairs. Sometimes the simple act of ‘moving,’ ‘moves’ a craving, ‘moves’ a mood. Moving changes your internal state. Move from one chair to another.

Our Lady of Weight Loss ON-TV.jpgNever too thin. Never too rich! Never too famous?
“They” say that financial incentives give a better chance at successfully losing weight. That being said, just how much money would it take for you to commit to losing weight?
Now casting: 100 LOST
Head’s up from Our Lady of Weight Loss. She heard through her sources that there’s a new reality show in town and they are casting, now! Here’s the info! What do you think? Are you up to the challenge?
A hit cable network is looking for teams of two who are a combined 100+ pounds overweight to compete to be the first team to lose pounds with the help of top health professions and fitness experts. Teams will have a chance to bet their own money, banking on their ability to lose the pounds. So ante up and get ready to be RICH and THIN!!!! (and famous, too?)
If you and a friend, spouse, family friend or co-worker think that you have what it takes, if you think that you can bring forth the Weight Loss Warrior in you (let it roar!!!), if you want to give it a go, and if you are over 18 years of age … then email 100Lost@iconicasting.com … and tell them that Our Lady of Weight Loss sent you!
Be sure to include both of your:
Names * Ages * Occupations* Cities and States where you live * Contact phone numbers * Emails for each of you * Each of your current weight * Facts about your relationship (friends, lovers, enemies? – oh that would be interesting, wouldn’t it!) * Attach current photo of the two of you.
Remember, that’s 100 pounds combined. It doesn’t have to be 50/50. Any combo you like, and as I understand it, you don’t have to be living in the same town. So start thinking out of the donut box and find a weight loss buddy so that you can lose the weight, find the money and get famous, while you’re at it!
Step out of your comfort zone and try on something new!
Spread the word … NOT the Icing!
