Our Lady of Weight Loss

Failure is NOT an Option!

Our Lady of Weight Loss wants to know …
… Are you afraid to commit to yourself fully? Are you terrified to lose weight, to fully take-in, ingest, go hog wild for your healthy living plan? Are you just plain afraid to push your envelope in any direction? Are you afraid to let the buried, the ‘real’ you – OUT? Afraid that you are going to fall on your tush again and again and eventually you will have broken it and seriously won’t be able to get up?
Are you afraid of failure?
Great! You are NOT alone. Fear of Failure is the Number ONE KILLER of Grand Plans and Great Schemes!
In all likelihood it started when you were young; you failed at something, maybe got a big fat “F” in school, or failed to get on the cheerleading squad. (Ha! Like I even tried.) Who knows what you failed at, but you did … we all did … and some of us soaked in those feelings from failure and decided consciously or unconsciously in that snapshot of a moment, on a deep level, to protect ourselves at ALL COSTS!
And so I say to you today, let’s turn that all around and
“Let’s CELEBRATE failure!”
Let’s acknowledge that no one was born with a ‘this is how to walk’ manual. We all fell on our tushes multiple times and were applauded for it; encouraged by our parents to get up and try again! Until we finally just figured it out.
Rather than crumble and never ‘walk’ again, I am going to ask you to applaud every failure today (and henceforth). Each and every time you fail, I want you to resist all urges to say mean things to yourself. I want you to resist all urges to crawl up in the corner in a fetal position and EAT! I want you to resist the need to protect yourself.
Yes, I am suggesting that we together celebrate failure!
I’m betting that you will inadvertently or intentionally fail (if you consciously decide to push your envelope) today. And you are now free to say “Yahoo. I failed.” And you are now free to learn from your failure. You are free to stretch and grow!
There is a BIG difference between failing and being a failure. Got it? You are NOT a failure. On the contrary. Your true nature is whole, creative and resourceful. There is no reality to FEAR. It’s a mindset! Reset your mind.
Failing requires courage. I understand that feelings of disappointment accompany failure. And that’s okay. Feel them. Fully! And then learn from your failure and say to yourself, “YAY! I am not frozen in fear. I am one of those rare people in life who are willing to put it out there and fall on my tush, get up, dust myself off and move forward.”
Celebrate failure. Celebrate YOU!

Scientists: Obesity Causes Global Warming

Oh My … more bad news for those (34% of Americans) who are obese.
In a study released by researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine scientists found that overweight people emit more carbon emissions than slim people, because they consume more food and fuel.
The study pointed a finger at the increased demand for livestock production for meat. Cows emit toxic methane. The research also sited higher dependency on cars as a contributing factor.
The authors of this report, Phil Edwards and Ian Roberts, said: “When it comes to food consumption, moving about in a heavy body is like driving around in a gas guzzler.
“The heavier our bodies become the harder and more unpleasant it is to move about in them and the more dependent we become on our cars.”
As I read this information, it seemed clear to me that the global warming blamed on obese people is overwhelmingly a by-product of more meat (toxic methane) and the increased use of cars (carbon emissions).
So let’s be clear to not blame ‘fat’ people, once again. Let’s agree that it’s a good idea to eat less meat, drive less and move more and reverse global warming and obesity trends.
After all, slim people eat meat and drive, too.

United Airlines: Double Your Fat, Double Their Pleasure.

Fat Suit.jpg
United Airlines is the latest airline to jump on the anti-fat bandwagon and penalize their overweight passengers by charging them, should they not fit ‘comfortably’ into one seat, for two seats! They say that they are doing this because they received 700 complaints last year about overweight passengers.
In my capacity as someone who knows the ‘overweight’ landscape well, as an ‘ex-fatty’ (50 pounds permanently removed 8 years ago), author of two best-selling weight loss books, seminar leader and Life & Wellness Coach, I have a few questions for United Airlines and the other carriers who have adopted this two-seats/two-faced policy.
What other complaints have you received in the past year, and how many? Has no one mentioned the delays, cramped seating (no matter your size), or poor food choices? I’d like to see a full report on complaints.
You say that your criteria for double charging is, “if a passenger cannot close the arm rest, or cannot fasten the seat belt with and extension.” Given that 34% of Americans are obese, might you consider making the seats larger?
What if you still receive complaints about those who manage to ‘fit in’ their seats, but nevertheless, a bulge or a ripple of fat ungulates across the divide? Where will you draw the line or the tape measure?
Will you have a “model” at the gate, as you have a display/image of what size luggage constitutes a carry-on?
You penalize overweight people yet you offer no real healthy choices when distributing your peanuts, snack bars, cookies, et al. Why not offer fresh fruit?
Instead of adding to the problem, creating even more of a stigma for those who are over-weight, why not become a part of the solution? Partner with Life & Wellness Coaches, fitness centers, nutritionists alike. Offer frequent flyer miles to those who create healthy lifestyles. Dedicate a section of your flight magazines to health education.
Step up to the healthy plate and make a real difference.
