GO CRAZY! Your Life Salad

GO CRAZY! It’s Your Life, is it not?
Create It the Way You Want it – Off-the-Menu Salad!


This beliefnet blogger has been on the road, promoting the best Permanent Fat Removal book ever (if you LOSE it; you will FIND it)All Is Forgiven, Move On: Our Lady of Weight Loss’s 101 Fat-Burning Steps on Your Journey to Sveltesville … and I’ve got to say, eating on the road is easy! Not because the menu that the restaurants and hotels offer are fully loaded with low-cal, low-fat choices! Far from it! It’s easy, because I got creative and found a new way to order!
Here’s how you can ORDER off the MENU!
1. Read the menu. Note the ingredients used in the various dishes offered.
2. Make a list of what ingredients work for you (mental list or on paper).
3. Then, put the ingredients together in a new way.
4. If they say, “Oh, that’s not on the menu.” … You can reply, “Oh sure, it is.”
Here follows the best salad I ever that I created!!! As Our Lady of Weight Loss says, “You can order off the menu in a restaurant, as well as life.” If what’s offered doesn’t work for you, tweak it, change it, create it. It’s YOUR life!
It’s YOUR Life Salad!
Ingredients: arugula lettuce, chick peas, roasted beets (yellow), nicoise olives, feta cheese (a sprinkling), mandarin orange slices, 3 ounces of seared fresh Tuna steak.
Instructions: Place layer of arugula lettuce on your plate. Then add yellow roasted beets (slices), a few nicoise olives (pitless), a sprinkling of feta-cheese (one or two ounces tops), a 1/4 to 1/2 cup chick peas, mandarin orange slices (6 from the can; wash off or pat off the syrup) and a few slices of freshly seared tuna steak.
Note: There’s so much delish taste from the mix of foods, in particular the feta cheese, that there is absolutely no need for salad dressing. And you’ve just saved hundreds and hundreds of calories! BRAVO!

Easy Weight Loss with Antonio Banderas

What a Day for a Daydream by Janice Taylor, Health & Happiness Beliefnet Blogger.
While waiting for the 6 train on 116th and Lexington Avenue (not the most beautiful subway stop in Manhattan), I took the opportunity to mentally review my to do list: pick up low-fat milk, watermelon, multiple bags of salad, one-calorie per spray dressing; drop off dry cleaning; call my cousin; sign up for meringue lessons …
The thought of learning how to dance the merengue – gliding gracefully and sensually across the dance floor set my mind off and well – dancing . . . into a beautiful daydream. I mentally drifted onto the dance floor. I could hear the music, and I could feel my hips swaying. I was energized, happy and feeling alive.
Just as Antonio Bandaras was reaching his hand out to mine, our fingers just about to touch, the train screeched into the station. I didn’t get to dance with Antonio, but I realized that daydreaming is a type of trance state.
Daydreaming is a fantasy that one has while awake – often spontaneous, as was my daydream. Some daydreams are about future scenarios, some replay past experiences, and many daydreams are connected to some type of emotional experience.
Einstein daydreamed his way to the Theory of Relativity. Proof positive that daydreaming both stimulates the mind, relaxes the body, and is a process that can help to set goals, manage conflict, boost productivity, increase creativity, achieve goals and relieve boredom. (Go, Einstein! Go.)
Be A Daydream Believer
Daydreams with intention are a form of self-hypnosis. You effectively release all conscious control in the moment, and simply allow yourself to go with the flow of your sixth sense.
Go for a mental ride, allowing your unconscious mind to pretend to imagine. You can easily allow your attention to be directed inward and reach a part of yourself that you cannot reach while conscious or while sleeping.
New Point of View: Daydreaming is as important to permanent fat removal as food and movement (a.k.a. exercise). Make it a part of your day.

Lose Weight: How big is your ‘want’ power muscle?

Goddess of Lost and Found Pounds
Land of the Lost and Found Pounds by Janice Taylor, Beliefnet Health and Happiness Blogger
Once upon a time a chubby young woman was wandering about in the Land of the Lost and Found Pounds thinking self-deprecating thoughts when she ran into the Goddess of Forever Thin.
She said, “Hi Goddess. You are wise, and I am desperate. I want to lose weight once and for all. My triple X elastic waistband pants are tight and leaving skid marks.” (She showed her the marks.)
The Goddess asked, “How strong is your desire to permanently remove your excess weight?”
“Hey, are you kidding? Am I not in the Land of the Lost and Found Pounds, and did I not just show you my skid marks!” she replied.
The Goddess calmly continued, “Will you plan your meals, shop for fresh fruit and vegetables, power walk around the park at least three times a week?”
“Oh, dear,” the chubby young woman replied, “I just don’t have the time. I’m way too busy during the day and, at night, I am way too tired.”
“What personal sacrifices will you make to ensure that you will reach your goals?” asked the Goddess.
“Sacrifices?” she answered.
“Until you build your ‘want power’ muscles, you will aimlessly move up and down, in and out of the peaks and valleys in the Land of the Lost and Found Pounds.” said the Goddess.
Thankfully, the Goddess of Forever Thin then handed the chubby young woman a little pamphlet to read and digest, giving her much food for thought.

“The Goddess of Forever Thin’s Guide to Building Your Want-Power Muscle”

Think “I can” thoughts. Repeat after me… “I can. I can. I can.” You are starting to feel more confident, aren’t you?
Stay clear of the naysayers. You will undoubtedly find those who say, “You’ll never make it. It’s too hard. How can you live without cake 24/7?” etc. etc. etc.! Don’t let the naysayers embed their negative thoughts into your clear mind. Smile and move on, fast.
If not now, when? You have a responsibility to yourself, first and foremost. Tomorrow never comes.
Imagine! Yes, just imagine the level of satisfaction, pride, happiness that you will ultimately experience when you develop positive habits – when you believe in yourself – when you reach your goals.

New Point of View: Developing your ‘want power’ muscle will deliver you from The Land of Lost and Found Pounds to The Land of Forever Thin.

Measure Success: Crafty Fashionistas Weigh-In

<img alt="ART%20tapemeasure%20bracelet.jpg" src="http://blog.beliefnet.com/ourladyofweightloss/ART%20tapemeasure%20bracelet.jpg" width="252" height="189" style="float:left; margin:5px;"
One day, as Janice Taylor, Beliefnet Blogger was negotiating her way along the rocky road to Sveltesville on her 50 pound weight loss journey, she got fed up with measuring her thighs and waist, so she got busy and found a new way to measure success!
How do You Measure Success?
To be perfectly honest, one day while standing on a plateau of enormous magnitude, I snapped. I screamed, I cried, I felt sorry for myself. The Scales of Injustice would just not budge.
Truly, is not measuring oneself a masochistic act (especially if you are doing it hourly)? Is success limited to the movement of the scale? The tightening of the tape measure?
If the thought of wrapping a tape measure around your waist, hips or thighs is just too overwhelming, why not make a groovy, funky, fun bracelet out of it?! I wear mine all the time, and it never ceases to amaze and delight!
How to Make Your Tape Measure Bracelet
Supplies:
black elastic thread
one needle with eye that is large enough to get black elastic thread through it
one tape measure (color of your choice, although I must say red is simply fab if you are wearing red glasses, have on red nail polish, a red shirt … go RED!)
Instructions:
Thread your needle with the black elastic thread; knot it at the end.
Place needled at the 1/2 inch mark and sew through, then loop the tape measure to the left and put the needle through at the 1/2 inch mark, and now go to the next 1/2 inch mark (should be inch 1) and pull through; and then up through 1.5 inch mark; and back down again at the 2 inch mark. Get it? You are looping in and out, making a ruffle.
When you get to the end, tie a knot and cut the elastic. Tie the ends together. Make a bow. Now you’ve got a tape measure bracelet! Woo hoo!!!
Consider yourself a success … at the very least you are making a grand fashion statement!!
