Water Day: Drink Enough Holy Water to Frighten Noah …

The Ten Commandments of Permanent Fat Removal: Commandment #7: “Thou shalt drink enough Holy Water to frighten Noah and map out all the restrooms in thy village.”10CommandFRON.jpg
Today is National Water Day!
A good time to remember that drinking water is IMPORTANT!!!!
Because …
We are mostly water. Between 60% and 70% of our body weight is water; our brains are 75% water. Imagine how dried up your thinking is without water? Your skin? Wrinkle city!!! Your intestinal track? Can anything glide through it??? A deficiency of water can alter the concentration of electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and chloride. Water has a profound effect on brain function and energy levels!
Drink at least half your body weight in ounces of fresh water daily! I know that you think you’ll have to stop at every bathroom from here to Timbuktu, but not true. Your body will adjust rather quickly and happily!
For those of you who are just not into water, try fruit flavored water.
Fruit2O has just come out with a new line of flavored waters that are drenched in vitamins and minerals!
Bottoms Up!

Spread the Word … NOT the icing,

How to Make an AFFIRMATION CONTAINER (and change your life)!

Affirmation Container Top.jpgAn affirmation is a form of auto-suggestion a.k.a. self-hypnosis, in which a statement is made about the future in the present tense, as if it had already happened in the past.
Yes, that’s right. Repeat, please … An affirmation is a statement about the future, made in the present, as if it had already happened in the past!
It is a statement or a desirable intention that you can deliberately meditate on, or repeat in order to embed in both your conscious and unconscious minds. It is a statement that transcends time and space.
Repetition opens the door to your unconscious mind. And your unconscious mind is much like a computer. Today, you are beginning to input the right program into your mind. Your programming is called the “I CAN.” Program and it is designed by YOU!
When we speak in ‘affirmations…’
“I am in control of my life, and I am committed to my goals.”
… our unconscious hears the affirmation as a fact that is yet to be and it immediately seeks ways in which to manifest this new fact. Yes, your unconscious is taking your affirmation in as fact.
You can ‘give yourself’ a positive affirmation to repeat as you settle into a calm and quiet place; or you can recite your affirmations throughout the day, while awake and alert. Perhaps while brushing your teeth, or walking, or you can even sing your affirmation in the shower. It works best to recite each affirmation five times.
Such a simple thing to do, isn’t it? With such wonderful results, as well!
And now, as YOU begin to create affirmations that work best for YOU, as you do know best, you can be very curious as to how your unconscious is going to find the right path to guide you to your goals. So often the goals are much closer than we imagine.
The most powerful way to use an affirmation is to say “I am” before that which you want to be, do or have. The words “I am” is your primary link to your identity. “I am” makes a very strong impression on your unconscious mind a.k.a. your inner computer. Be careful NOT to link any negative thoughts with the words I am, I, me or mine.
Here follow a number of affirmations to get you started. If they resonate, ring true, sound good, feel right, give you chills or aHa moments, use them. If not, you can write your own affirmations with ease.
TRY ON these affirmations!
I am smiling.
I am happy and content – and so relaxed.
I love myself as I am.
I choose to be healthy.
My thoughts influence my body.
I choose to think positively about my body.
I now believe and I know that I control my weight.
My new reality includes my ideal weight and shape.
I am my happy weight.
I am happy to be alive!!!!!
(Excerpt from the FILL UP ON HAPPINESS e-Program!)
Affirmation Container inside.jpg
And NOW for your AFFIRMATION CONTAINER:
Materials Needed:
one empty tin (Altoid containers are great!)
gesso (gives metal ‘tooth’ so paint and paper will stick to it, rather than peel off)
sponge brush, 1″
pretty paper, images
glue stick
faux fur tape, fringe, any decorative touches that delight your soul!
card stock (to write affirmations on)
Instructions:
pour a little gesso into any container * use sponge brush to ‘paint’ gesso onto container, all sides, everywhere * cut up pretty paper into all shapes and sizes, and with glue stick place onto container. * if you like, decorate with faux fur tape (just peel and stick) and/or fringe or ‘diamonds’ … truly anything that is fun for you!!!
Spread the AFFIRMATION … NOT the icing,
Janice

What YOU Say: Food Demons and Voices of Doubt

A Kick in the Tush Club member writes about the her Food Demons and Alien Voices.
Dear Janice ~ I was reading your book, Our Lady of Weight Loss, and when got to the evil twin chapter, I really paused right there to meet that voice (I might say I was given an opportunity to see – because I do think this was a gift from God) and it wasn’t pretty! In fact in my mind’s eye, I caught the literal red eyes of my ‘evil twin.’ This may sound creepy in a way, but this story will conclude with how this relates to my theology/belief system as well.
Anyway, at that moment – I took my journal and wrote down all the things my ‘evil twin’ and/or the Alien voice tells me (this list is on-going) – and so this is my list (thus far):
Things my “Evil Twin” says to me:

  • “You will never reach your goal.”
  • “You are proving to the world you can be a happy, successful ‘heavy person’.”
  • “You speak to me with a ‘shades of doubt’ and deceptive vocabulary with words like “hopefully”, “I think I now get it”, “God willing” – you always leave an escape route so that I am not really held accountable.
  • “At least you are holding your weight (for 5 years) and have not gained back the 25 pounds.”
  • “Maybe you can’t lose any more than this – perhaps you are just stabilized here.”
  • “You’re on vacation – there’s always tomorrow.”
  • “Well, at least you are trying.”
  • “Well, at least you keep trying.”
  • “You only lost 0.8 lbs this week, and that was with a perfect journaling week”” (implying what hope is there?).
  • “You might as well give up.” – this one followed the above one of course.
  • “You’re never going to be thin, never have – never will.”
  • “People like me are never thin.”
  • “You don’t know how to be thin.”

    Anyway, my revelation was as follows just a few days after making this list.
    The Origins of the Evil Voice - My Truth: Adam & Eve’s sin in Genesis was a ‘fall for all persons’ – and at the point of that fatal temptation – Satan was externally spewing words of doubt , like “surely God can’t really mean this” in Eve’s ear – words she’d never heard before…temptation (and with fruit no less! ! !phith).
    At that very point of the ‘fall’ – at the point of the bite (again, funny it happened through eating-yes?) – at that cosmic moment, the external voice became our internal voice (forever and in all of us until Christ comes again), our evil twin inside was born. Now that I see and I know the voice, I can really hear the lies in it – I know now as I have never quite before.
    For the first time in my life I really did catch the spiritual nature of the trip to Sveltesville. Now I listen far more closely for what that ‘voice of doubt’ tells me, and I treat it way more seriously.
    Suffice it to say, thank you again for your part in it! Kathleen A.
    Dear Kathleen ~ Thank you so much for your thoughts and insights on your inner Alien a.k.a. Evil Twin. I am sure your words hit a chord with many. We have all heard that voice – to one degree or another – in one form or another.
    Weight Loss is a spiritual journey, most definitely! And I am honored to be a witness to your success. Keep up the great work!
    Spread the spiritual word … NOT the icing!
    Janice

  • Just Listen

    “No one is as deaf as the man who will not listen.” ~ Jewish Proverb
    Imagine what it would be like if we really listened to each other? You know, instead of half-listening; instead of ‘sort of’ paying attention while multi-tasking, or just plain zoning out, or – most commonly – anxiously awaiting for the ‘listenee’ (a.k.a. speaker) to pause for a millisecond, so that you can jump right in with your brilliance.
    Well, for one thing, the person to whom you are listening would enjoy the extraordinary experience of being ‘heard,’ ‘seen,’ and ‘witnessed.’ And YOU, the person who is actively listening, would be exercising your observational powers and, in so doing, you might just perceive more than you normally do. You might understand the ‘listenee’ on a whole new level. You may have even ‘heard’ the golden nuggets of what was left unsaid!
    While you are chewing on that, read on
    The DO NOT’s of ACTIVE LISTENING!!!
    Do NOT allow your brain to race ahead of your lips! We speak at about 100 to 150 words per minute, but we think at 250 to 500. Just listen!
    DO NOT anticipate what will be said. Just listen!
    DO NOT be distracted by the people or things around you. Keep your eyes focused on the “listenee.” Just listen!
    DO NOT interrupt. Allow her/him to finish their thought. Just listen!
    DO NOT plan your responses as the speaker is speaking. Just listen!
    DO NOT give advice unless specifically asked for it. Just listen!
    DO NOT share every single story from your own life that might relate to what the “listenee” is saying. Just listen!
    It’s not as easy as it sounds!!!
    WHAT does this have to do with Permanent Fat Removal a.k.a. Weight Loss?
    Our Lady of Weight Loss works in with a WHOLE LIFE MODEL, which means that weight loss does not live in its little fat-free container … alone. One area of life impacts on the other. Certainly, your ability to build strong relationships with the people in your life can help to support other areas of life. Think about it!
    And when you are truly paying attention to another, you are NOT thinking about yourself, or food. Isn’t that a relief?!
    Spread the SILENT word … NOT the icing,
    Janice
