The Inaugural Luncheon : Tasty Tidbit or Fatty Feast?

Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness OBAMA by Janice Taylor
NOT invited to the Inaugural Luncheon in celebration of the swearing-in of our great nation’s 44th President? Don’t feel bad! As it turns out the meal that they are serving, is NOT Our Lady of Weight Loss approved. Oh sure, I realize that it is an important occasion; more than important – an historic occasion!
Nevertheless, as the world faces an obesity epidemic, you’d think they would have conferred with Our Lady of Weight Loss for some lean advice???
INAUGURAL LUNCHEON … Feast or FAT???
It is rather stunning, isn’t it? If you had been invited to the luncheon and ingested every bite, you may have had an amazing time, but you’d come home one pound heavier!!! Here’s the official doc-2009-recipes.pdf of the menu with the original recipes from the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies….

Seafood Stew, paired with a 2007 Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc
631 calories and 32 grams of fat
A Brace of American Birds (pheasant and duck) with Sour Cherry Chutney & Molasses Sweet Potato, paired with a 2005 Goldeneye Pinot Noir
1,534 calories and 77 grams of fat
Apple Cinnamon Sponge Cake and Sweet Cream Glace’, paired with Korbel Natural “Special Inaugural Cuvee”
883 calories and 33 grams of fat
3,048 calories! (wine and champagne not included) for lunch!!!

To those in the White House kitchens …
All Is Forgiven, Move On!
Enjoy this glorious day!

In Pursuit of Happiness: Give and Give Some More

As we approach a most significant mile-stone in our great nation’s history … as we witness the swearing in of our first African-American President … let us reflect on one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence.
“Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” – three aspects that are listed among the “inalienable rights” of man.
How can you live a life of happiness?
Be the GIVING; be the CHANGE … put others before yourself – volunteer on Monday, January 19th – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day … and going forward. SIGN HERE, The Declaration of Service.
MY PLEDGE
Happily, in exploring USA Service, I found that I can visit a local school and do some hand’s on work with the students. I am going to put together ‘happiness art projects’ to hand out to the children who would like to bring home a “Pursuit of Happiness” project.
PLEDGE NOW! Sign the Declaration of Service! Give and Give Some More.

Kill that Nagging Voice Once and For All!!!

This morning this Beliefnet WEIGHT LOSS GURU got on the Scales of Injustice and weighed-in 3 pounds UP for no reason. I SWEAR!!! Truly, no reason …
And even though, I know that there is no real reason for this to be happening. (Let me say it again, truly no real reason. I’ve had a cold and have been barely eating!!! … Note the neuroses setting in.)
Even though, I know that it must be water weight, cold weather weight (the wind can make you weigh more), full moon weight … still that nagging voice a.k.a. my “Evil Twin” appeared.
We all have an “Evil Twin” that pops up every so often who says stuff like, “Wow, you’re fat.” “Your face is unbelievably puffy today.” “You may as well eat the entire box of donut holes.”
Would you like to know how to quiet that voice? Or even KILL IT!!! (Sorry to be so violent, but the scale was 3 pounds up!!!)

Our Lady of Weight Loss Weighs-In on How to Quiet (or Kill) that Nagging Voice


Step One: Notice where that voice comes from. Do you recognize the voice? Is it your voice or someone else’s voice?
Step Two: Now that you have a clear vision of where that voice is coming from and what it sounds like, let’s change it.
Step Three: Change the voice to either: Donald Duck, Bugs Bunny, or you after having sucked on a balloon filled with helium. To help you come up with a funny voice, check out this video (100 Funny Voices in 5 Minutes.)
Step Four: Add sound effects. I like gongs! Here’s a link to all kinds of free sound effects.
Step Five: Laugh at your Evil Twin, at yourself! Lighten up!!! Seriously now, do you see that we don’t have to be soooo serious? We can laugh at, give new voice to, change the voice of our nagging self … WE CAN laugh it up, while we slim down!!!
How do you handle your Evil Twin? Please let us know!!!
Spread the word … NOT the icing!

Starve a Fever? Feed a Cold? Starve a Cold? Feed a Fever?

Our Lady of Weight Loss KILLS the Flu
Oh Me, Oh My! “IT” came out of NOWHERE … I was feeling absolutely fine one moment and the very next I was overcome with aches, pains, fever, stuffy nose, cough! And I couldn’t remember if I was supposed to feed ‘it’ or starve ‘it.’
So, I crawled into bed with my laptop and a cup of hot tea and asked Our Lady of Weight Loss to give me the strength to do a bit of Internet research. Never mind that I wasn’t hungry – never mind that I had a 101 fever … As any good foodie would do, I searched for permission to FEED this BABY!!! Here’s what I found out!!!

Our Lady of Weight Loss’s TIPS on How to KILL the COLD


1. GET PLENTY OF REST!!!
… Yahoo!!! Get out your flannel p.j.’s and ‘chill.’
2. DRINK PLENTY OF LIQUIDS …
… Primarily water. Your body cannot function properly without the right amount of water.
… Natural juices.
… Vegetable juices.
… Hot Grapefruit juice (haven’t tried it yet).
3. INCREASE VITAMIN C
… ‘They’ say that a healthy person should ingest 3,000 to 5,000 mg’s of vitamin C. And there are Vitamin C powders and Vitamin C crystals that you can mix with water! (another way to get the water in). Try 5,000 mg’s or more!!! (Ask your doctor!)
4. KEEP WARM …
… Socks, hats, gloves; even if you’re in bed! It’s okay to look silly. You’ll get more sympathy.
5. ZINC LOZENGERS ...
… Some swear by them and they say that zinc will kill the cold in its tracks.
6. FOOD!!!!!! (Drum roll … here comes the answer to the starve it/feed it question!)
… If you are hungry, eat; If you are NOT hungry, don’t! Soup is a good idea because it’s warm, has plenty of nourishment in it and it’s liquid.
SORRY! Our Lady of Weight Loss did not lead me to even one tiny little article that said that I should stuff myself; eat French fries dipped in Ketchup; order a pizza; eat ice cream or candy. Common sense, once again, prevails.
In the meantime, I have flushed the fever out of me!!!
And here is a link to Fiona Hayes’ recipe for LOW FAT CHICKEN AND RICE SOUP.
You can sign up for her newsletter! Fiona rocks!!!
What do you do when you have a rotten kick-tush cold? How do you stop ‘it’ in its tracks!?!!! Leave comment below.
Spread the word … NOT the icing!
