Oprah: 200 Pounds and Embarrassed? Let it go, you’re the Big O!!!

Some time ago, I wrote Oprah a letter and posted it on her website.
“Dear Oprah,” I wrote, “If I can permanently remove over 50 pounds, so can you. Why don’t you come and visit with me. Stay a week. I’m willing to bet you’ll lose weight. And it’s not like I’m starving myself or doing much exercise either. It’ll be fun.”
After I sent this note via her website, I totally freaked out. I mean, what is she actually showed up? Without warning? She does that kind of surprise stuff on her show. What if the house were a mess? Would she sleep on an air mattress? What about the floors? They needed to be buffed up for sure!
I got so wound up and caught in the web of my own fantasy that I actually ran out to Bed Bath and Beyond and stocked up on cleaning fluids and a Swiffer floor cleaning kit. It’s still in the closet. Floors still in need of polish!
So, when I read in today’s AP article that Oprah weighs 200 pounds and she’s embarrassed about it, I had the same urge to reach out.
So here goes … Oprah, if you are reading this, seriously … come and visit with me. I’m in NYC, in fact, around the corner from Maya, so we can all hang together. I’ll make huge batches of vegetable soup. Are you good at chopping? Because I’m not.
We can walk around the park, go to the post office together. And watch Oprah at 4 p.m. together. How funny would that be!
And I am willing to bet you whatever it is that you’d like to bet that if you stayed with me, a 50 pound big-time-loser, you’d be a loser, too!

Note that O, the Oprah magazine says I am a ‘kooky genius.’ Wild coincidence!!!
Oprah, If I can, you can. For goodness sake. Come! Stay! We’ll talk; we’ll walk; we’ll eat fruits and vegetables; we’ll laugh it up while we slim down together.
I’m taking a risk, you know, by posting this. Oprah could show up. I better get crackin’ and cleanin’!
Spread the word … NOT the icing,

Recession Proof Laughs: Cheap and Easy

Slim Down While You Laugh It Up! by Janice Taylor
Did you know that laughter~
* Reduces levels of certain stress hormones.
* Boosts the immune system.
* May lead to hiccupping but will dislodge mucus plugs from the respiratory tract! (Oh, how appealing!)
* Gives you a full body workout (works the diaphragm and abdominal, respiratory, facial and back muscles).
* Ever feel exhausted after the giggles? You just had an aerobic workout. (My kind of exercise!)
* Gets those positive endorphins pumping! Laughter invokes feelings of happiness and joy!
* Promotes creative thoughts.
* Creates bonding with your fellow human. Nothing better than a shared laugh!
Here are a few yuks to start your week and to help you bond with your neighbor!
“My wife will say this to me – “Honey, I want you to tell me if I’m getting fat.” And I say, “All right, and you tell me if I start getting retarded.” ~ Jeff Foxworthy
“It serves me right for keeping all my eggs in one bastard.” ~ Dorothy Parker
“Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and give her a house.” ~ Lewis Grizzard
“My mother buried three husbands – and two of them were just napping. ~ Rita Rudner
“We never talked to each other in my family. We communicated by putting Ann Landers articles on the refrigerator.” ~ Judy Gold
CAUTION: Don’t Tease, If You Please … New York University’s latest research indicates that a well-meant joke is more than likely to be taken the wrong way. To avoid unknowingly hurting someone’s feelings make yourself the butt of your jokes.
What’s your favorite one-liner (or two)? Comment below!

What is the flu and will it kill you?

Flu.jpg
Flu (noun):
1: an acute febrile highly contagious viral disease [syn: influenza, grippe]
What is the flu and will it kill you?
The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can be mild or severe and at times, it can even lead to death.
Statistics show that on average, in the United States, 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu (some years are clearly more virulent than others); more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from complications and approximately 36,000 people die!
How does the flu vaccine work?
The influenza vaccine is made by first growing the influenza virus in eggs. It is then killed and processed to create the vaccine, which is then injected under our skin. Note: if you are allergic to eggs, you better tell your doctor fast.
Over the next two to four weeks, the body then produces antibodies to the virus. If you come into contact with the influenza bug, your body is set to attack and kill the virus before it has a chance to swing into full force. The vaccine covers the three most likely strains to arrive during the flu season.
What happens if you are either infected before the two to four weeks that your body is busy producing antibodies? What happens if you are attacked by one of the less likely strains to attack during the flu season? The flu shot is 80% effective, but that’s if it’s for the right flu, and the shot is administered at the right time.
Who should get the flu vaccine? And who should not?
The Center for Disease Control suggests that the following people get flu shots:
• all children aged 6-23 months;
• adults aged 65 years and older;
• persons aged 2-64 years with underlying chronic medical conditions;
• all women who will be pregnant during the influenza season;
• residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities;
• children aged 6 months-18 years on chronic aspirin therapy;
• health-care workers involved in direct patient care; and
• out-of-home caregivers and household contacts of children aged 6 months.
And the CDC suggests that the following people do NOT get flu shots:
• persons with a severe allergy (i.e., anaphylactic allergic reaction) to hens’ eggs and
• persons who previously had onset of Guillain-Barré syndrome during the 6 weeks after receiving influenza vaccine.
What does Our Lady of Weight Loss say?
Natural flu busters are a good idea.

* Green tea – Studies show that Green tea is a natural anti-viral and anti-bacterial remedy. It is natural immune system booster that may help you get you through this flu season (and it has been reported that it aids in weight loss).
* Garlic – Long used as a natural antibiotic and antiviral, Garlic acts as a “mucokineti” agent. It alleviates congestion commonly associated with flu. Caution: Garlic is a blood thinner. Be sure to consult with your doctor if you are currently on an aspirin or prescription blood thinner regimen.
* Vitamin C – Many studies have shown Vitamin C to boost the immune system.
* Fruits and Vegetables – be sure to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
* Water – drink plenty of it. Flush those toxins out of your body.
* Sleep – get enough rest.

Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Tush Kickin’ Survival Guide to the Holidaze Glaze

1. Recycle Food Gifts. FAST! Don’t even think about crackin’ that box of chocolates open. Send ‘em right out the door.
2. Steer Clear of the Buffet Table. What kind of masochist are you, anyway?
3. Keep on Talking. It’s difficult to eat and talk at the same time not to mention terribly uncouth.
4. No Sweat Pants Allowed. Leave no room for expansion; wear snug clothing!
5. Keep Your Hands Busy. Try knitting, crocheting, cutting and pasting, needlepoint, draw, write – anything to keep your hands busy. Give your creations as gifts!
6. Ask Santa for a Pedometer. And then, for goodness sake. Use It!
7. Eat Before the Party. Make yourself a huge (and I mean huge) salad and eat it before heading out, lest you get hungry and act like a reprehensible pig.
8. Learn how to say “No, thank you” in several languages. You’ll be saying it a lot, so keep it interesting and fun. French is always lovely. No merci. Je suis a la diet.
9. It’s a holiDAY. Not a week or a month or the entire season.
10. Should you succumb, over-indulge, carbo-load or drift off into a burnt-marshmallow-sweet-potato-sugar-induced coma, confess your sins to Our Lady of Weight Loss. And remember “All Is Forgiven, Move On!”
