Kirstie Alley: A puzzle for these fat times.

Click to Mix and Solve
This week’s jig-saw weight loss art was inspired by Kirstie Alley’s appearance on Oprah (Thursday, April 30). I empathize with both Kirstie and Oprah. I’ve lost ‘it’ and found ‘it’ more than once.
Here’s a link to my this week’s post about the show:
Kirstie Alley & Oprah: Stuck In a Fat Suit?
In the mood for more celebrity weight???
Kathy Ireland: Overweight. Overwhelmed.
Star Jones: Addict, Depressed and Honest.

Boost Your Immune System: Survive Swine Flu

Dramatically Increase Your Ability to Survive Swine Flu
Avoid airplanes, subways, confined spaces and BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM!!!
Imagine that your immune system is your own personal army. Your troops guard against attacks from ‘alien’ forces, and they defend against invaders. If we ignore, abandon or mistreat this system, it weakens.
However, when we take care of our personal army, when we keep the troops happy, energized, and performing at their peak, we can boost our immune system and our chances of staying healthy are increased dramatically.
How to Defend Against Swine Flu and Boost Your Immune System
1. SLEEP DEPRIVED NATION – The body rejuvenates and strengthens itself when it is at rest. For the most part, we require approximately 8 to 10 hours per night. Sleep has been linked to balanced hormone levels (including human growth hormone and the stress hormone, cortisol). The right amount of sleep can help to keep weight down, clear thinking and reasoning, improved mood, and vibrant, healthy skin.
Specifically with regard to our immune system, a study published in the journal Seminars in Clinicial Neuropsychiatry indicates that “significant detrimental effects of immune functioning can be seen after a few days of total sleep deprivation or even several days of just partial sleep deprivation.” Get your zzz’s!
2. WATER, WATER, WATER – Staying hydrated can alleviate headaches, alleviate depression, hydrate skin – keep you youthful and happy! AND … Water flushes the body of toxins! You should be drinking daily, your body weight in pounds, divided by two = number of ounces of water per day.
3. ELIMINATE REFINED WHITE SUGAR. If you really want to boost your immune system, experts suggest that you eliminate sugar. Your energy levels will improve, your weight distribution will change, you will think more clearly, have less cravings, and your immune system will be strengthen … dramatically!
4. FILL UP YOUR PLATE (and YOU) with Fruits and Veggies! The nutritional value that you receive from raw fruits and vegetables is unparalleled. Their vitamins (with an emphasis on Vitamins A and C), phyto-chemicals that give fruits and veggies their color and antioxidants protect cells against environmental toxins and give your immune function a real big boost!
5. TEA TIME. Green tea is a rich source of a type of antioxidant called a catechin. Preliminary research has found that a specific catechin called epigallocatechin gallate (egcg), may give the beverage antigen-fighting abilities. In other words, it may well boost your immune system.
6. INGEST FRIENDLY BACTERIA. Foods that contain probiotics, bacteria that stimulate immunity cells in the gastrointestinal tract, are found in yogurt or kefir drink. One drink per day may well keep infections away! Make sure that you look for yogurt (or kefir) that contains ‘live active cultures.’
7. STRESS-LESS. Our bodies respond to our emotions, to stress and upset, to feeling anxious or harassed and can manifest a cold, sore throat or more. Do create a space within yourself, within your physical environment (home or office) in which you can relax, calm down, take in a deep breath and let it go.
8. SHAKE IT! Exercise makes our body stronger, it increases the circulation of blood and nutrients, and it helps flush the body of toxins.

The Ultimate Weight Loss Question-The Ultimate ANSWER!

How Can I Lose Weight???!!?
I received an email from a reader enquiring, “Can you give me some pointers on weight loss?”
To which I replied, “might you please be more specific?” After all, I could write volumes on the topic, from top to bottom and bottom to top, which I have (two fabulous books thus far, in fact, chock a block with vital, useful and fun – yes FUN – weight loss information!).
More information poured forth from said reader, “What SHOULD a person do to lose weight? … One who has high blood pressure and diabetes? I know that I SHOULD eat less and exercise more. But I CAN’T seem to make myself do all that. I might not be TRYING hard enough. What SHOULD I do?”
My philosophy about weight loss is that the food plan is a part of the equation, because one can NOT lose food without a solid, healthy food plan, BUT it is only a part of the equation! What carries you forward into your compelling future, what keeps you motivated, what turns weight loss into permanent fat removal (ahhhh, chew on that for a moment before you move on) is your mind-set, your belief systems, which start with the words that we use.
STOP TRYING!!!
As Yoda from star wars says, “Do or do not … there is no try.” Every time you say that you are ‘trying’ to do something, you are essentially making certain that you have a way out. There’s no commitment in ‘trying.’ How many times have you said, “I’ll try to make it to your party.” -or- “I’ll try to stop by.” Did you? So, please. just DO. DO eat healthy, DO move and shake thy booty.
STOP SHOULDING ON YOURSELF!!
Nobody likes to hear “You SHOULD” …”You MUST” … “You HAVE to.” And yet … we are constantly telling ourselves what to do. These words imply obligation. You agree that you ‘should,’ but you don’t ‘want to.’ So, if you do what you ‘should do,’ resentment bubbles up, and if you don’t do what you ‘should’ do, you feel guilty, bad, feelings of failure surface. Work on your WANT POWER muscle; move toward ‘want’ and away from ‘should!’ Let go of the should, the guilt, the negative thoughts and move toward being excited that you are creating a new and wonderful life. What do you WANT to do?
YES, YOU CAN
If you tell yourself that you can NOT do something; then you cannot. If you tell yourself that YOU CAN, then you can. Start by acknowledging your thought and begin to turn it around by saying, “It’s not that I can’t; it’s that I just don’t know how.” Yes, you can lose weight, and yes you can figure out how. Get it?
If you TRULY want to Get UNSTUCK, then read these articles, ingest every morsel and THINK about your mindset!
