Our Lady of Weight Loss

Our Lady of Weight Loss

What will happen when you become fit & healthy?

No one is an island, unto themselves.
People belong to wider systems, and it’s useful to think through, to know how a change will affect those systems. As you let go of your excess weight, become slim, fit and healthy, it may have an affect on your family, your friends, your job.
And so I ask these powerful weight loss questions …
… How will becoming slim, fit and healthy affect the wider systems you belong to?
… How will your losing weight affect your family?
… How will your becoming more energized and self-loving affect your friends?
… How will your becoming more powerful affect your job?
It may all be good. Nevertheless, it’s good to think through and be curious about.
How will losing weight affect the other areas of your life?
Hungry for more food for thought?
What if weight loss were no longer an issue?
What’s fear got to do with it?
Are you drowning in drama?

Mother’s Day Recipes – Satisfying and Scrumptious (video included)

We are visiting my 93 year-young mother on Mother’s Day. While she lives along, drives and is A-okay in every way, she no longer cooks! (Not that she was much of a cook to being with … oops, don’t tell her that I said that.) Anyway, I was agonizing over lunch. What to cook up and bring with us? I was reading recipes on the Internet for hours and hours and then it dawned on me – the biggest ‘duh’ moment ever. “For goodness sake,” I said to myself, “You’ve written two fantastic books that are chock-a-block full of recipes.”Here follow some of my personal favorite recipes from Our Lady of Weight Loss: Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal as well as All Is Forgiven, Move On: Our Lady of Weight Loss’s 101 Fat Burning Steps on Your Journey to Sveltesville. These recipes are beyond good; they are GREAT … and they are basically one-bowl, easy to whip up recipes with easy to find ingredients. They are “to die for,” as we like to say in New York City!Simple Salmon SaladIngredients:1 lb. Salmon fillet, poached and cooled to room temperature2 celery stalks; finely chopped.1/2 red onion, peeled, finely sliced2 tablespoons capers (strain out the pickling juice) (I love salty capers; you might want to put 1 tablespoon in and see how it tastes before adding the 2nd spoonful.)juice from 1 freshly squeezed lemon2 tablespoons, fresh dill, choppedsalt n’ pepper to taste!Directions:Combine all ingredients in bowl and serve, on a nice 7 grain or whole wheat bread (read the label; no high fructose corn syrup please!) Alternatively, on an artfully arranged bed of lettuce.

Waldorf a la Our LadyIngredients: 4 apples, unpeeled, cored and chopped into bite-size pieces Juice from 1 fresh lemon1/3 cup raisins (plumped*)2/3 cup chopped celery1/4 walnut halves1/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise (15 to 25 calories per tablespoon; no need for full-fat!)1 Tablespoon RAW Sugar (let’s let go of the refined stuff)Directions:Mix everything together in a medium-size bowl. Let it chill overnight. Something yummy and crunchy to look forward to!!!*Plump Your Raisins (not thyself)Place raisins in bowl and add enough warm tap water to cover them. Let them sit for a few minutes, absorbing the water, as they happily and peacefully plump up. After they are sufficiently plump, carefully and with love squeeze out excess water!

The Devil’s EggsIngredients:1 dozen hard-boiled eggs, preferably free range and organic1/3 cup reduced-fat mayo1 sweet pickle, diced (or 1 to 2 tablespoons sweet relish!)2 heaping Tablespoons of Dijon mustardjuice from 1 fresh lemonhot sauce, 2 major shakes – 3 if you like it spicy! (Jsalt n’ pepper to tasteDirections: Take hard-boiled eggs and cut the long way. Remove yokes from eggs and put in medium sized bowl. Add reduced-fat mayo. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until smooth and yummy.Then take a teaspoon of egg mixture and neatly place in the whites. (Do your best NOT to lick your fingers!)If you like, sprinkle a little bit of paprika on top! The red looks so nice against the yellow. Very artistic!

Mother’s Day: Best Mother Ever Award Goes to …

MANGO mania.jpgTell the truth. Are you a bit cranked out, disillusioned or just plain tired? Are you giving, running, doing until you are dry? If yes, I’d like to encourage you to stop it, right now! There’s no way you can be the ‘best mother ever’ or even come close to it if you are running on empty!
PUTTING YOURSELF FIRST ...
… a revolutionary idea whose time has come!
Do you put everyone and everything before yourself? The kids, your partner, significant other, spouse, your job, family members, community obligations, friends, and goodness knows who or what else?
Are you cranked out? Annoyed? Maybe even angry and bitter? How about drained and exhausted? Do you feel like you’re juggling so many balls, you may as well join the circus?
And to add insult to injury, your healthy eating plan has gone out the window, hasn’t it?
I could hypothesize as to why we put everyone else’s needs before our own, but it matters not why we do it. What matters is that we STOP doing it.
When you put everyone before yourself and stop paying attention to your own needs, stop doing the things that you love to do, stop connecting to yourself, you effectively don’t exist. You’ve lost your identity, and run the risk of playing the victim.
I’m not saying that you should abandon others or neglect others, I’m simply suggesting that you take care of yourself first.
Let go of the guilt of getting your own needs met before others. Those who neglect themselves often experience deeper levels of unhappiness, low self-esteem and resentment than those who take the time to nurture themselves.
Taking care of yourself, nurturing yourself, nourishing yourself, appreciating yourself, and loving yourself allows you to give to others from a satisfied and happy place (vs. bitter and empty).
PUTTING YOUR SELF FIRST. If you lose yourself, you gain weight. Interesting how that works!
Here are some suggestions of things to do that may help you to get reacquainted with yourself.
Take a bath.
Listen to music.
Read a book.
Sit and stare.
Write in your journal.
Take a walk.
Go to the movies.
Go to a museum.
Sing at the top of your lungs.
Ask for what you want!!! (They are not mind readers.)
Say “No.” (In any language.)
Sleep when needed.
Smile.
Laugh.
Take a Leap of Faith.
Make your own list and schedule some time for yourself, TODAY.
I understand that it’s difficult to prioritize something like taking a bath when the sky is falling, but self care is so very important, and you so deserve to take care of yourself.
Taking care of yourself sends a message to others that you and your needs are important, too. Carve out some time TODAY to do something meaningful and pleasurable. Rejuvenate NOW!
Leap NOW!
How to Take a Leap of Faith (without crashing).

OVERWEIGHT: Will It Kill You?

A new study led by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health reports that hundreds of thousands of deaths each year are due to diet and lifestyle.
Below are the numbers of annual deaths in the United States due to each of the individual risk factors examined, all of which are preventable. (Source: Harvard Science Foundation)
• Smoking: 467,000
• High blood pressure: 395,000
• Overweight-obesity: 216,000
• Inadequate physical activity and inactivity: 191,000
• High blood sugar: 190,000
• High LDL cholesterol: 113,000
• High dietary salt: 102,000
• Low dietary omega-3 fatty acids: 84,000
• High dietary trans-fatty acids: 82,000
• Alcohol use: 64,000 (alcohol use averted a balance of 26,000 deaths from heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, because moderate drinking reduces risk of these diseases. But these deaths were outweighed by 90,000 alcohol-related deaths from traffic and other injuries, violence, cancers, and a range of other diseases).
• Low intake of fruits and vegetables: 58,000
• Low dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids: 15,000
“The large magnitude of the numbers for many of these risks made us pause,” said Goodarz Danaei, a doctoral student at HSPH and the lead author of the study. “To have hundreds of thousands of premature deaths caused by these modifiable risk factors is shocking and should motivate a serious look at whether our public health system has sufficient capacity to implement interventions and whether it is currently focusing on the right set of interventions.” Majid Ezzati, associate professor of international health at HSPH, is the study’s senior author.
