Our Lady of Weight Loss

Our Lady of Weight Loss

DIET Re-defined! from the Our Lady of Weight Loss Dictionary

Our Lady of Weight Loss spoke to me in my sleep last night. Actually, I wasn’t quite asleep. I was dozing … in the delicious half wake/half sleep state. Yum!
SHE has been communicating with me in this fashion for close to a decade now (Whoa! Time flies!). When she has something important to say, something she wants me to pass along to you, she nudges me just as I am drifting off. I keep a notebook and pen next to my bed, for such occasions. I jot down the message and then continue to drift, drift, drift … ahhhhhh.
Anyway, before I get so comfortable and drift off again … this time SHE specifically asked – more like instructed – that I reach out to YOU (yes, YOU!!), and see if you might be interested in joining us (OLofWL and me) in changing the agreed upon meaning of the word “DIET.”
The WORD: DIET
According to Webster’s dictionary the word ‘diet’ is not limited to what we eat or drink. Its number 2 meaning is: “something provided or experienced repeatedly, i.e. ‘a diet of Broadway shows and nightclubs’ ~ Frederick Wyatt.”
A diet of Broadway shows and nightclubs appealed to Our Lady. It seems like a diet she could live with. She also expressed interested in a ‘diet’ of happiness, love and gratitude. Yes, imagine ingesting daily platters of happiness, filling up on love! Wow!
OLofWL is very interested in re-defining ‘diet’ as a regime that moves us away from feelings of deprivation, defeat and depression (our past association to the word diet); and rather a regime that moves us toward happiness!
She is therefore suggesting a daily diet consisting of: happiness, creativity, self-love, and positive energy and that we feed our minds, spirit, and sense of play. That’s right!
We can follow The Happiness Diet and have our daily intake of happiness. Happiness includes (but is not limited to) talking to friends, enjoying a walk around the park, deep breaths of fresh air, buying flowers and arranging them in five vases around the living room!
Our Lady of Weight Loss wants to know …
What would you like to fill up on? What would you like to experience repeatedly? What new definition would you to give the word “diet?”
DIET: from the Our Lady of Weight Loss Dictionary
“Something that you experiences repeatedly that fills you up in the best sense … with non-food related items! For example: The Happiness Diet consists of daily platterfuls of beautiful morning skies, Mozart and/or John Lennon, dishy conversations with good friends, hugs, kisses, and cozy slippers.
Spread the word … NOT the icing!

Want to FEEL BETTER, LOOK YOUNGER and GET A RAISE???

One of the best things you can do for yourself and for everyone around you is to smile. Smiling brings oxygen to your brain, immediately makes you feel better, and sends out comforting messages to others. Smiling pulls people in nice and close.
A true smile comes from genuine pleasure. Two sets of facial muscles are used to create this smile. The first set is in the cheeks that pull up the corners of the mouth; the second set is around the eyes. These muscles cause the eyes to narrow and crinkle.
Smiling can make you look like an inviting, accepting, likable and pleasant person (even if you’re not). When you first meet someone, if you don’t smile that person is likely to think that you’re not interested in or attracted to them. They may even think you are a cold potato. So, even if you’re feeling blue or simply not in the mood to smile, do yourself a favor – smile anyway. Fake it until you make it!
The health benefits of smiling are plentiful.
Smiling~

  • 86% of people are more likely to talk to strangers if they are smiling;
  • bosses are 12% more likely to promote people who smile a lot;
  • research shows that 65% of communication is non-verbal (some say even higher); and
  • studies show that happiness is a by-product of smiling, not that those who are happy smile as most people assume.
  • The simple act of smiling can change your day.
