Passionate Living 101: Burn fat & live life large

Weight Loss Coach logo.jpgMotivation is not task driven. It’s all about emotion. It’s fire driven. In order to permanently lose weight, we need to be passionate.
And … you’ve got to fuel your passion (just like you have to fuel your body and fuel your car!). You have to set yourself a goal that connects to an all consuming desire.
How to Move from Stuck to Unstuck
Our Lady of Weight Loss believe that questions are powerful. They automatically shift your mind into a different space. Questions can move you from stuck to unstuck.
Here are some questions from Our Lady of Weight Loss that will help you to dig deep, tap into your core strengths and find your passion!

What gives you lasting satisfaction?
What energizes you?
What makes your heart sing?

Please answer these questions in your Our Lady of Weight Loss notebooks, so that you can keep adding to your thoughts and insights as the day and week moves along.

“You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.” ~ Albert Einstein

Drop Dead Diva: Thin Girl Dies, Steps Into Fat Suit

Drop Dead Diva, starring the uber-talented and lovely Brooke Elliott, premiered on Lifetime last night, and let me say right up front, this Beliefnet.com blogger LOVED IT! I mean, who doesn’t love a good transformation! The Premise: Deb, a blonde, size 0, vapid, aspiring model crashes her top-down sports car into a truck that is transporting oranges. The visual of Deb and her car buried in thousands of oranges adds a colorful and ‘light’ touch to her death.That’s right – Deb dies, and through divine intervention (they should have brought Our Lady of Weight Loss in on this one), she is transported into smart, giving, kind lawyer Jane’s size 16, frumpy body. It’s 2 cups of Freaky Friday, plus 3 cups Legally Blonde with a shake of Heaven Can Wait and a pinch of Hairspray (the fat girl ultimately wins the guy).And sure, just as you would expect, Drop Dead Diva utilizes the lame idea that all size 16 girls are smart, frumpy and kind (NOT!) and all size 0 girls are shallow, mean and dumb (NOT!), to establish a plot line. I don’t think the show will ultimately change how people feel about being ‘fat,’ nor do I think the show is going to create a donut shortage (although I confess that plate that was calling out to Jane was whispering my name, too), or an increase in gym memberships (wow, did you see the tone and definition in Jane’s clients’ arms?). Drop Dead Diva, at its heart is charming, ‘light’ comic fare – a romanic chick-flick-series if ever there was one. Escapism, fun, and fashion friendly.Celebrity Weight Central:Rebecca Romijn: 60 pounds gone?Kirstie & Oprah: Stuck in a fat suit?Is Oprah Hypnotizing YOU?Spread the word, not the icing!Janice——————————————————Follow Janice on Twitter and/or Facebook!

The Secret Power of Ganesh: Remover of obstacles (belly fat or otherwise)

DOG Ganesh JIG 2.jpg As Our Lady of Weight Loss was moving into a state of bliss on a leisurely and contemplative stroll on the “Road to Svelvesille,” she bumped into Lord Ganesh, the oh-so-chubby and wise, elephant headed Hindi God, who is best known to be the remover of obstacles.
Just as one might expect, Ganesh was carrying a ‘laddus,’ a bowl that was filled with sweet meats. His appetite for sweets is legendary. So legendary that offers of them are often left at his shrine!
“Oh Ganesh,” Our Lady of Weight Loss said, “It is so good to see you. It’s been far too long.”
“Yes,” Ganesh replied, as he offered Our Lady one of his sweet meats.
Thanks, but no thanks, Ganesh. I’m not hungry. And truthfully, I just saw the movie, “Food, Inc.” and unless that meat you’re carrying is organic, I’m not interested.”
Our Lady of Weight Loss continued, “But you know, there is something you can help me with. Many of my Weight Loss Coaching clients struggle with obstacles that are continuously tossed left and right in their paths. In addition to the usual ‘natural’ obstacles such as lightning striking trees and then toppling on a car, it seems they are confronted by their husbands bearing ice cream pops, their mothers baking cookies, the ubiquitous candy bowls in their offices, and so much more.”
“Oh, I know,” replied Ganesh. “Just the other day I was shopping in Gourmet Garage and just the amount of free samples was enough to feed my village for a day.”
“Yes, there’s that too. Obstacles and temptation everywhere. What can you offer to my peeps that might help to free them from food obsessions and move them forward with grace and ease?”
“That’s easy, Our Lady,” Ganesh responded with glee. “I can provide a mantra, a religious and mystical series of words that can be chanted aloud or silently. Mantras are, in a certain sense, the most ancient method of using affirmations that can bring change to one’s life.”
Ganesh enthusiastically continued, “Hey, isn’t “Step 75″ in your fabulous book, All Is Forgiven, Move On about mantras? And by the way, congrats on your first book, Our Lady of Weight Loss being a part of Oprah Book Club, Summer Reading, 2009!”
“Thank you, Ganesh!” Our Lady smiled. “It is a thrill to be on the same page as Oprah, and yes, “Step 75″ in AIF, MO is entitled “The Mother of All Mantras.” Now … please … what is the mantra you can offer my peeps so that they can easily and effortlessly plow through their obstacles.
“Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha.” Ganesh chanted 108 times.

* * *

There are many chants to Ganesh, but a simple and powerful one is this:
Om gam ganapataye namaha!
A simple and loose translation might be:
Om = Salutations! Everyone wake up!
Gam = The secret power sound of Ganesh. It is his “seed syllable” or bija mantra.
Ganapataye = Another name of Ganesh, the breaker of obstacles.
Namaha = Yo! Ganesh! You da God!
And here’s how to pronounce it!
Om = ohm or aum
Gam = Somewhere between “gahm” and “gum”. In some dialects it is “guhng”.
Ganapataye = gah-nah-paht-ah-yeh
Namaha – nah-mah-hah
Take your time learning this mantra. And then, as you chant your first round of 108 repetitions, slowly speed it up.
Om gam ganapataye namaha!
Om gam ganapataye namaha!
Om gam ganapataye namaha!
And to further embed, infuse, soak in the mantra, and the power of Lord Ganesh, Remover of Obstacles, chant while working on your Sunday Jigsaw Puzzle!!!

Our Lady of Weight Loss speaks: Hear her roar.

Our Lady of Weight Loss: Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat RemovalRecently, Yolanda Renee interviewed this Beliefnet.com blogger, Janice Taylor, a.k.a. the voice of Our Lady of Weight Loss on her blog-radio show.
I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to Yolanda and sharing all my weight loss secrets, but to tell you the truth, I haven’t listened to the recording. Listening to my NuYawk accent is painful, and I always think, “Wow, I could have said that better.” I guess It’s kind of like actors who don’t watch their own movies – just too uncomfortable.
Nevertheless, Yolanda Renee went to great lengths and put in a good deal of hard work into creating and sending out our interview. And what’s the point of doing it if I don’t share it?
So, here, in my honestly uncomfortable state of being, I share the link to the interview.
From Yolanda Renee:
“Amid the vast landscape of weight loss books (and by vast, we mean headache-inducingly assive), a few stand out. One is Janice Taylor’s “ALL IS FORGIVEN,MOVE ON,” a follow-up to her 2006 book “OUR LADY OF WEIGHT LOSS (Oprah Book Club, Summer Reading 2009),” The second like the first, ‘is a funny, informative, enlightening and uplifting look at losing weight — and it even includes crafts! Join us for a lively discussion and check out Janice Taylor and her work at Our Lady of Weight Loss.”
Listen up and lighten up!
