Our Lady Mashes UP Water.gifIf the most healing, mineral filled elixir ever – the one that comes straight out of your faucet – is too dull and uninspired for your exotic, creative self, then read on. Because, Our Lady of Weight Loss has some water ‘jazz-ups’ that will delight your soul!
Lemons, limes, grapefruits, oranges … oh my! Serve up a large iced-pitcher of water, toss in some sliced-up citrus with a twig or two of fresh mint! And wowzer, you’ve just created an amazingly beautiful, fragrant and festive mineral water.
Fizzle Me Orange! Crack up a bottle of sparkling water a.k.a. seltzer or club soda, and mix in 2 ounces of orange juice, or any of your favorite citrus juices. Add more or less to taste.
Berry Mash-Up! Mash up blueberries or raspberries (or both) and add sparkling water. And, oh yes, if you want to add a splash of red wine to your dinner water, feel free! Am I reading your mind???
Sophisticated Savory! Grab a handful of fresh herbs from your herb garden! Infuse your water with rosemary, parsley, mint … go herb crazy!
Cucumber Fresh! Slice a half a cucumber nice and thin and add it to your iced water. It’s one of my all-time water favs … so cleansing, satisfying and spa-like!

Sexy 101: 9 One-Size-Fits-All Tips on How to Let Your Sexy Rip

 ART egg story.jpgJust in case you haven’t noticed, extra large portions of ‘chunky’ are being dished out this summer television season. In the midst of this schizophrenic landscape that sports fun-house mirrors, moving my psyche from thin to fat, and then back to thin once more, I began to wonder … what’s the summer takeaway? Is there a lesson to be learned from these shows? Is there a golden nugget to be found?
Is ‘chunky’ in or out?
The shows – Drop Dead Diva, More to Love, Dance Your Ass Off and Ruby – range from dance to comedy to reality – some promote health and weight loss, some say you’re fine just as you are, as they light up the grill and fill up on dessert. Mixed messages for sure.
Alas, the sought after nugget of gold came to me during Episode #5 of Dance Your Ass Off, when Shayla showed off her hip hop moves to “Low.”
Shayla, a 200+ pound beauty, rocked it with confidence. She oozed sexy. And there you have it, sexy has absolutely nothing to do with the number on the scale. It has all to do with turning off the criticizing chatterbox in your head that stops you from seeing and appreciating your unique and beautiful self.
Sexy people have an ‘air’ about them. They know how to ‘claim what’s theirs;’ they know how to ‘mark their territory.’ They know how to stand tall and through body language and words send out a positive message to the Universe. “Here I am! Happy to be alive. Confident, self-assured, and sexy!”
Sexy people ooze confidence, attitude and love. Want to ooze sexy with Our Lady of Weight Loss and me?
Sexy 101: 9 One-Size-Fits-All Tips on How to Let Your Sexy Rip
1. Shake It, Move It – From Jive to Meringue. Step it up and find a new way to shake your booty that connects to and energizes your soul. Nothing sexier than a high energy happy!
2. Wear Clothes that Fit – No matter what your size, there’s nothing less flattering than wearing clothes that are either too big or too small. Just take a look around you. Am I right, or am I right?
3. Smile Bright - There is nothing more alluring than a happy smile. Show off those pearly whites, and if they are not so pearly, get them whitened. It’s totally worth the investment.
4. Good Skin – Glowing skin adds to your glowing aura. Be sure to wash your face before you go to sleep as well as when you wake up, and throughout the day if you live in a dirty, gritty city like I do.
5. Smell Like a Million Bucks - Consider getting a new perfume and dabbing on a drop or two (don’t go crazy), or using a great smelling soap that lingers. Bottom line, you sure don’t want to smell bad, do you?
6. Focus on Personality - Forget what the scale says in either direction. If you are thin, and you are oozing sexy based solely on your looks, watch out. It won’t last forever. And if you’re on the chunky side, let it go as well. Let the real fun, energetic, loving and caring you shine through.
7. Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. – Everyone has something to offer to another person. You are loveable, creative, talented, and worthy of love. Just make sure that the person you are lovin’, is worthy of you!
8. Walk with Confidence – Now that you are energized, clean, smelling good, and you teeth are shining – step out with confidence. Believe in yourself. Strut your stuff and …
9. Have Fun - Lighten up, have fun. The definition of sexy should be: someone who is laughing, smiling, being real and having fun!

Happy Birthday Obama: Sugar-free Cake for the President

Weight Loss Art: Pious Project #1 - Sewn Birthday Cake
In honor of President Obama’s 48th birthday, I sewed him a piece of sugar-free, carb-free, fat-free cake! Yes, you heard me right.
Given President Obama’s healthy lifestyle and ability to think out of the donut box, I thought he would appreciate the concept of an everlasting piece of cake. So instead of baking him a cake, I sewed him a piece.
It’s what I do. I am a Weight Loss Artist. Instead of eating (certain) foods, I make art about them, and in the process lose weight. (50 pounds!) Sound kooky? Well, you know, having fun and being creative is essential when it comes to the battle of the bulge. Seriously, how many people are successful following the old way that solely focuses on food and exercise?
Here, at Our Lady of Weight Loss, we believe in fun. So, if you want to know how to sew yourself a piece of cake, write me. I’ll send you the instructions. FYI … if you are interested in more Weight Loss Arts & Crafts, pick up a copy of Our Lady of Weight Loss: Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal. Chock a block with motivation, useful information, recipes, fun and easy art projects and it’s an Oprah Book Club, Summer Reading 2009 pick!

Stressed to Refreshed: 7 simple things to do.

DOG Ganesh JIG 2.jpgPeople are stressed from their jobs, relationships, finances, health issues; people are stressed from their daily attempts to juggle all and find balance in their lives.
As it turns out, letting go of stress is a relatively easy thing to do, if you can simply remember that you can let go of it. Sometimes we get swallowed up by the drama of it all, and then we lose perspective and forget that we do have a choice.
Yes, it is a choice. We can either focus on the stress and ratchet it up a notch or two, or we can remember these:
7 simple things to do to “move from stressed to refreshed!”
1. Be in the now … There is no stress in the moment. Stress comes from worrying about what may have happened or will happen. “I’ve got too much to do, I’ll never get it all done.”
2. Move from here to there … The very act of getting up and moving from one chair to another, from one room to another, can help to ‘move’ your mood and shift you to a better place.
3. Flush your stress away … Drink a full 8 ounces of water. The healing properties of water are plentiful.
4. Eat healthy … Do not reach for sugary treats, fatty fast foods, alcoholic beverages, et al., as it will only add to your stress level.
5. Let go of the “victim” … Claim what’s yours and own your power. Let the warrior in you surface to the top and take control.
6. Open the windows and shout … I’m alive! Again with conviction. Again and again until you fully get the miracle of it all. Wow – you are alive!
7. Breathe deep … Breathe in experience; breathe out poetry ~ Muriel Rukeyser.
Everyday, think as you wake up, ‘today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others as much as I can.’ ~ Dalai Lama
Let it all go:
The word of God: Weight loss sabotage?
Depressed? Stressed? Overweight?
Feeling Blue? A mood lift.
Spread the word, not the icing!
