Kate Gosselin: Naked for Playboy? (Vote here!)

My sources tell me that according to Star magazine Kate Gosselin was offered $400,000 to pose for Playboy. It got my mind to spinning naked thoughts and wondering, if Hugh called me, would I say “yes?” How confident do I feel about my body? How confident do you feel about your body? Is $400,000 enough?
Even though I permanently removed over 50 pounds and went from a size 18 to a size 4 (or six, depending on cut – I like to keep it honest); even though I look kick tush in skinny jeans (if I say so myself); even though I appreciate my body and all it does for me; even though my body is the epi-center of my life, from which I experience my thoughts, feelings, physical sensations; even though I sure could use an extra $400,000 (remember though, you’d have to pay taxes on that money and lawyer’s fees, etc.) …
Let’s get real. $400,000 wouldn’t do it for me. Getting naked for the world would give me a headache. I’m not that secure…
Unless, of course, my contract included lots of airbrushing, final approval, and royalties!
And You? Would you pose for $400,000? How much would it take for you to get naked? Comment below and Pass it forward!
As for Kate, she declined. She was reported to be “mortified.” She didn’t think it appropriate because of the children.

6 Billion Pounds Overweight: Dr. Ian Smith gives America a kick in the tush

One out of three Americans is obese. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report confirms that America is experiencing a national obesity crisis.
What to do?
Enter Dr. Ian Smith!

Dr. Ian Smith, author of The 4 Day Diet, got tired of reading the ever-increasing headlines about our ever-increasing waistlines, so he decided to do roll up his sleeves, jump in head first and do something about it. With the support of State Farm, in April of 2007, Dr. Ian founded The 50 Million Pound Challenge.
I am thrilled to have this opportunity to interview Dr. Ian, as I am hoping to get the inside-skinny on the 50 Million Pound Challenge!
JT: Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to me today, Dr. Ian. As a Life and Wellness Coach, author of Our Lady of Weight Loss: Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal and 50-pound big-time-loser, I am genuinely interested and excited to hear about the work you are doing to reign-in the ever increasing American waistline!
But before you tell me about your work and The 50 Million Pound Challenge, I’ve just got to ask … How did you get into this line of business? As they say … funny, you don’t look like a fat person (past, present or future)!

Dr. Ian: I’ve never been overweight.
If, ten years ago, you’d told me that I would be doing what I’m doing today, I would have laughed. I was a health columnist for Time magazine, and I received numerous emails from readers seeking information about weight loss, supplements, and metabolism. There was a huge hunger (pun intended) to know the truth about these things.
I felt I owed a great service to my readers, and so I set out to learn about these different topics. And I was truly disgusted by the predatory forces that were taking advantage of desperate people.
Many of us sit on the morning shows and talk about the problems, but few actually get up and do something about it. I got tired of reading about it and hearing about it. I decided to do something about it!
With the help of State Farm, we launched at the nation’s capital in Washington DC, The 50 Million Pound Challenge.
JT: 50 Million Pounds sounds like an awful lot of weight! Tell us more about it.
Dr. Ian: Considering that America is 4 to 6 million pounds overweight, 50 millions pounds isn’t that much!
The 50 Million Pound Challenge offers Americans the free accessible tools they need to combat obesity. The Challenge provides a 24/7 – 365 day support network or all those who participate. Cities, churches, civic groups, friends and families across America are teaming up to help reverse the obesity epidemic and work toward a culture that embraces healthy living.
Our website tallies total pounds lost and offers free resources including a 30-day diet plan, online journal, personal weight and activity trackers and Challenge teams that make it that much more fun. There are over 38,000 teams and 1.4 million members to date.
JT: And what specifically is happening on September 12?
Dr. Ian: Since so many medical illnesses have walks and special days, we decided to walk against obesity. We are teaming up with communities and leaders from across the country to host the first annual series of Walk Offs on September 12.
Sixteen majors from major cities nationwide including Houston, Phoenix and Philadelphia are hosting 50 Million Pound Challenge Walkoffs in their cities. Everyone is invited. You can go to the website and sign up to host a walk in your city.
It’s a great opportunity to get up, get out, get moving with your family and friends and an opportunity to put a dent into the obesity issue.
JT: It’s a wonderful start, and I applaud you for taking action. And, it’s great that State Farm has stepped up to the plate (no pun intended), but what about the other corporations?
Dr. Ian: State Farm has been extremely generous in their support of the 50 Million Pound Challenge. And corporate America is doing more than it has in the past, but there still is a big gap.
JT: What about the Food Industry? How do they fit into this obesity epidemic? I’m angry at the industry for blatantly producing foods that I consider to be unhealthy. I find their lack of morality appalling, to say the least.
Dr. Ian: The food industry has huge culpability as to why we in America find ourselves where we are. The food industry is not a non-profit agency. They are in it for the profits. I don’t have much confidence that the industry will change or that they will self-regulate. Yes, they are major league culpable for this nonsense.
JT: Weight loss isn’t easy; in fact some find it difficult to not only lose weight but to keep their motivation in high gear. Do you have any tips that you can share with us?
Dr. Ian: Weight loss is 80% mental and 20% physical. The first seven chapters of my book, The 4-Day Diet, speak to the psychology of weight loss. You need to understand that motivation is not something that can be given to you or purchased. The motivational engines are in us. I tell people to look inward. What has worked for you in the past? Perhaps, you want to live a healthy lifestyle for your children or grandchildren. Perhaps, you’re afraid you are going to develop diabetes.
JT: What about fashion … you know, wearing sexy or cute clothing? I know that’s motivating for me and for a great number of my clients. Of course, we want to be healthy, but we want to wear regular sized clothing and feel good about the way we look. It’s a thrill and it reflects our new selves … our transformations!
Dr. Ian: In the old days, I was judgmental about motivating people.
Now I know that it’s not for me to judge. You define what motivates you and keep it going! The honest truth is that weight loss is not easy; it does require work. But it is doable.
JT: I’m happy to spread the word (NOT the icing) through the Our Lady of Weight Loss world. I know that people will want to join the 50 Million Pound Challenge and help be a part of this movement. Any final thoughts?
Dr. Ian: Movements start with small numbers of people. If enough voices are lent to a cause, the voices synchronize, and a loud and powerful sound emerges, “Enough is enough!”
Let’s get busy; let’s do something about it now. Let’s set a healthy example. Make a difference!
JT: Thank you Dr. Ian. I’m all pumped up and ready to join The 50 Million Pound Challenge.
And YOU!!? The 50 Million Pound Challenge. Help America shed its 6 billion excess pounds!
More food for thought.
Harmful chemicals in YOUR mac & cheese?!

Are YOU a food addict?
Spread the word … NOT the icing,

09 09 09: 9 tips, 9 pounds in 9 minutes

It’s 09 09 09 and Our Lady of Weight Loss has 9 tips to share with you that can help you to lose 9 pounds in 9 minutes.
How it works: Read these 9 tips slowly. One minute per tip, equaling 9 minutes. Make these tips a part of your healthy lifestyle and over time, you will easily and effortlessly shed those extra 9 pounds!
1. Savor the Flavor. Practice mindful eating as you focus on each and every bite. Slowing down provides an opportunity for you to not only savor the flavor, but to also get in touch with your feelings of hunger and satiety. Stop eating when sated!
2. No Bag Policy. Make it a rule to never, ever eat out of a bag. Count your crackers, put them on a pretty plate. Put the bag away. NOW! And re-read tip 1 – savor the flavor.
3. Small Dishes Delite. It’s a scientific fact (published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine). People eat more when they use big plates and bowls than those who use small dishes, and they are equally as satisfied! Go small.
4. Can’t Say No? Make a list – right now – of the foods that you absolutely cannot say no to. Now, go through your cabinets and toss them! Make your home a safe haven.
5. Bite it/Write it! Studies show that those who track their foods statistically lose twice as much as those who don’t. Writing it down keeps you honest and conscious.
6. No Seat/No Eat. Do sit at your dining table. Do NOT stand and eat over the sink. Plain and simple.
7. Appetizer-Size Me. Most restaurants super-size their portions. Either order an appetizer as a main dish (if it’s not enough, you can always order a second one) or doggy bag your food at the beginning of the meal. Ask your server to pack up half and bring half!
8. Eat Breakfast. Studies show that people who skip breakfast consume more calories during the course of the day. Eating breakfast kick starts your metabolism and gets the energy moving. Make it a part of your healthy lifestyle plan.
9. Fruits and Veggies as the Main Event. In order to ingest the suggested 5 to 9 servings daily, pile high your plates first with fruits and veggies. They provide fiber, minerals, vitamins, that not only help to fight disease but also help to control portions of starches and proteins, which for the most part, are way more than necessary.

Obama Speech: Get back on the wagon presidential style.

 ART egg story copy.jpg
The holiday weekend is over. It’s time to get serious!
This weight loss riddle will get you back on track, back on the wagon … presidential style. There’s no need to give up!
You’ve decided to make scrambled eggs for breakfast. You take three eggs from the refrigerator. As you are oh so gracefully moving toward the counter, one falls from your hand and smashes on the floor.
What do you do?
1. Clean it up.
2. Make two scrambled eggs instead of three.
3. Get another egg from the fridge.
-or-
4. Throw the other two eggs on the floor and say ‘screw it!’

Weight loss is a process. Falling off the wagon and finding yourself a bit bruised and bloated is par for the course. There’s no need to throw your eggs on the floor and give up!
Those who reach their weight loss goals are simply the ones who get back on the wagon – again and again. (Personally, I’ve fallen so many times, it’s become a part of my exercise program.) Those who succeed experience these setbacks as temporary lapses. They understand that there are no magic bullets, no quick fixes. The turtle wins this race.
Here are a few thoughts and tips to help you pick yourself up and climb back on the wagon!

How to Pull Yourself Up from the Boot Straps in Seven Easy Steps

1. Practice Loving-Kindness. Please stop being hard on yourself and saying mean things to yourself, too! (If someone else called you a fat pig, you’d punch them in the nose!)
2. Postcards from the Edge. Send an inspirational and motivational weight loss e-card to your friends. Helping others stay on track is a way of keeping yourself on track. (Here’s a link to the BEST e-cards EVER – and they’re FREE).
3. Write Out Your List of Reasons: I want to lose weight because ____________. (fill in the blank and be honest) “Be healthy. Look younger. Be socially acceptable. Make that rat who left me feel real bad.”
4. The 80/20 Rule. No one is perfect 100% of the time. If you follow your weight loss plan 80% of the time, and treat yourself to an occasional treat 20% of the time, you should be able to achieve and maintain your weight loss goals.
5. Five Easy Pieces. Listen to the five “easy” classical pieces played in the movie “Five Easy Pieces” (1970) The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Jack Nicholson), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Karen Black), Best Picture and Best Writing, Story and Screenplay Based on Factual Material or Material Not Previously Published or Produced.
* Chopin – Fantasy in F Minor Op.49, played by Dupea on the back of a moving truck.
* Bach – Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, played by Dupea’s sister, Partita, in a recording studio.
* Mozart – E-flat Maj. Concerto K.271, played by Dupea’s brother, Carl, and Catherine upon Bobby’s arrival to the island.
* Chopin – Prelude in E Minor Opus 28 no. 4, played by Dupea for Catherine.
* Mozart – Fantasy in D Minor K.397
