Weight Loss Wisdom: Stuck On Chocolate

ART Stop.jpgJanice Taylor, Beliefnet blogger, reporting in from Omega Institute of Holistic Studies in The Catskills, New York.
Our Lady of Weight Loss and I are leading a workshop entitled “Our Lady of Weight Loss EnLIGHTens.” (She always gets top billing!) There are about twenty fabulous people in Our Lady’s group.
Yesterday’s afternoon session centered around taking a good long and honest look at our self-limiting beliefs and excuses. In other words, we explored our very brilliant “Stay Fat Strategies.”
Think about it. If you have been ‘trying’ to lose weight, permanently remove the excess and have not succeeded, then you’ve implemented your very own ‘stay fat strategy,’ haven’t you? And it stands to reason that if you have figured out how to stay fat or stuck, then you are capable of turning your strategy around, doesn’t it?
As you know, it is Our Lady of Weight Loss’s mission to make weight loss fun. So we are most definitely having lots of laughs as we learn about ourselves and ‘let go’ of our excuses, ‘let go’ of what’s holding us back.
Here are some of the fun strategies from us at Omega to you (wherever you might be)!
Top Ten Strategies on How to Stay Fat!
1. Blame someone else; our mother, husband, kids … anyone else!
2. Wear stretchy clothes.
3. Never partake in activities that make you sweat.
4. Go grocery shopping when hungry, and be sure to bust open a bag of chips before you hit the check-out line (yes, do pay for them).
5. Declare Friday greasy pizza day.
6. Delude thyself … often.
7. Believe that food tastes better at midnight.
8. Eat out A LOT.
9. Drink alcohol when eating out.
10. Chocolate always and forever!
How are you keeping yourself stuck?

Coach Yourself Thin: How difficult is your weight loss journey?

Weight Loss Coach logo.jpgToday’s weight loss question was inspired by The North Wind from Aesop’s Fables.
The North Wind boasted of great strength. The Sun argued that there was great power in gentleness.
“We shall have a contest,” said the Sun.
Far below, a man traveled a winding road. He was wearing a warm winter coat.
“As a test of strength,” said the Sun, “Let us see which of us can take the coat off of that man.”
“It will be quite simple for me to force him to remove his coat,” bragged the Wind.
The Wind blew so hard, the birds clung to the trees. The world was filled with dust and leaves. But the harder the wind blew down the road, the tighter the shivering man clung to his coat.
Then, the Sun came out from behind a cloud. Sun warmed the air and the frosty ground. The man on the road unbuttoned his coat.
The sun grew slowly brighter and brighter.
Soon the man felt so hot, he took off his coat and sat down in a shady spot.
“How did you do that?” said the Wind.
“It was easy,” said the Sun, “I lit the day. Through gentleness I got my way.”

With regard to weight loss, are you the Wind or the Sun?
How difficult do you make your weight loss journey?
How could you make the journey more manageable, less overwhelming and happier?

Coach Yourself Thin questions:
What are you willing to do to lose weight?
How do you stop yourself?
Will being overweight kill you?
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
Janice

National Donut Day: Our Lady of Weight Loss takes on Krispy Kreme!

Art Avocado Angel2.jpg
As an antidote to National Donut Day, Our Lady of Weight Loss gave a shout out to the Angel of Avocado. “HELP! Send a healthy recipe, now! Look what the big chains – Dunkin’ Donuts, Krispy Kreme – are doing to our people? Giving out free donuts?! They’re not really free, if you get my drift! Oy Vey, it’s unbelievable.”
The Avocado Angel responded immediately with an amazing recipe that will delight and help to make you healthy! You are ‘bigger’ than the call of the donut. Don’t give in! Get Political: Be Healthy!!!
The Avocado Angel presents a
Super Summer Salad:
Two fruits are better than one!
Interestingly enough, the two main ingredients of this super summer salad are both fruits, though they are thought by many to be vegetables.
True fruits come from the ovary in the base of the flower, and contain the seeds of the plant. Therefore, both tomatoes and avocados are fruits!
Avocado: This fruit is harvested from tall tress, which grow in groves in tropical climates such as Mexico, California, Hawaii and Florida. Its rich, pale yellow-green flesh has a smooth-buttery texture with a faintly nutty flavor.
Tomato: This fruit is a member of the nightshade or Solanaceae family, a cousin to the eggplant, pepper, potato, ground cherry, tomatillo and the highly toxic belladonna, as known as the deadly nightshade! Tomatoes come in a variety of sizes, colors and shapes. From tiny currant tomatoes to cherry tomatoes, to large tomatoes.
INGREDIENTS
3 large tomatoes, chopped
3 avocados – peeled, pitted and diced
1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced
ground black pepper to taste
1/2 (8 ounce) bottle balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing (read the label and please – make a healthy choice)
DIRECTIONS
In a large serving bowl, toss together the tomatoes, avocados and red onion. Sprinkle black pepper, to taste, and then gently pour (go easy) salad dressing over. Cover and chill for at least one hour before serving to blend flavors.
Enjoy!
