Discover Me JigSaw Sundae by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader & 50-pound Big-Time-Loser!
“Discover Me” is inspired by a touching tale of woe. When I was 8 years old, and weighed 112 pounds – I secretly wrote letters to Hollywood producers, asking to be discovered.
Dear Hollywood Producer,
I am a chubby girl. I wear pointy glasses. I could be a great character actress. Please discover me.
Hurry!
Janice

After writing, I thoughtfully put my missive in an envelope and wrote “Paramount Studio, Hollywood.” I neglected to include street, etc. as I didn’t have it handy (no Internet to look it up!), nor did I bother with stamps (didn’t have any and figured they’d pay on the other side).
Sadly, no one came and discovered me!
Life Lesson: If you want to be discovered, fully address your envelope and use USPS stamps!
Happy Sundae of a Non-Fattening Kind!

PLANNING: A Winning Strategy

How important is it to plan? VERY! By Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Certified Hypnotist, Neurolinguistic Practitioner, Author, Seminar Leader & 50-Pound Big-Time-Loser! (write Janice for free consult)
Many of you exhibit quite a bit of resistance around planning your meals, making time for food shopping, and exercising. Is it really that complicated to buy fruit and vegetables? Throw a sandwich together in the morning? Or walk around the block?
Doing nothing is something! By not planning, by not actively creating health, you are planning and manifesting in the negative.

Seven Dull but Nevertheless Useful Planning Tips that Will Help You Plan a Most Succulent and Exciting Life

  1. Schedule planning time on your calendar and adhere to it!
  2. Anticipate problems and plan for them! Life happens. Hold 1/2 hour blocks here and there throughout your day. Consider it catch-up time.
  3. Schedule thinking time! Yes, that’s right… you have to think!
  4. Plan for tomorrow, tonight. You will be amazed how well you will sleep.
  5. Plan day-to-day and week-to-week. Once a week schedule time to look at the week to come.
  6. Plan on paper. You’ll never remember all you need to remember. Trust me!
  7. Take your time. No point in rushing and missing something important!

Tell the Truth: Crumbs Don’t Count!

Who’s Foolin’ Who? by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Certified Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader & 50-pound Big-Time-Loser!! (write Janice for a Free Consult!)
Self Talk: Sometimes, when biting, tasting and licking other people’s foods, I have to stop myself and say to myself, “You might not be counting what you’re eating, but your body has a built-in calorie counter. Who are you foolin’?”

Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Baker’s Dozen Who’s Foolin’ Who Compilation of Things We Say to Fool Ourselves

1. Crumbs don’t count.
2. Eating while standing up, doesn’t count.
3. It’s only one bite.
4. I won’t eat the whole thing.
5. Just this one time.
6. I deserve it.
7. It’s a celebration.
8. I don’t want to hurt my mother’s (my sister, my friend, my boss’s) feelings.
9. Samples at the supermarket are unexpected. Surprise!!
10. Licking doesn’t count.
11. It’s free.
12. They’re eating it.
13. Life’s short.
These ‘thoughts’ might not hold much power on the page in this moment, but when you are of the mind to eat something, they may seem perfectly rational.
There is an infinite assortment of circumstances in which we encourage ourselves to tell little white lies in the Land of Weight Loss (note I did not say Permanent Fat Removal; because there is no need to lie to oneself in the Land of PFR).
In the face of food, fooling oneself, lying to oneself may seem easier, but in the end you are planting seeds of unhappiness, guilt, and well – fat cells! Fat cells in your mind as well as your body.
What to do? Try this exercise in awareness. Tell the truth! Carry a little notebook with you and write out all your little white lies without judgment.
Then ‘leave’ one of your white lines in the comment section below or in the Kick in the Tush Club community! It will be deposited in Our Lady of Weight Loss’s White Lie Bank. For every 3,500 white food lies deposited, you will permanently remove a pound!

Go Healthy: 13 Cooking Tips

On Your Mark, Get Ready, GO HEALTHY! – Simple and Easy Tips by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Certified Hypnotist, Syndicated Columnist, Seminar Leader, 50-pound big-time-loser. (Write Janice for free consult!)
People ask me about my eating habits. They’re curious about what lifestyle changes one has to make to permanently removed excess weight (a.k.a. lose weight). So, I thought I’d ask Our Lady of Weight Loss to put together her top 13 (a baker’s dozen) tips! And … here they are! Nothing dramatic, but each and every one hugely important!!! Small changes = Big results!


13 Top Tips from Our Lady of Weight Loss’s Kitchen

1. Add dried fruits to baked goods.
2. Substitute apple sauce or mashed bananas instead of butter.
3. Instead of globbing on the butter, use olive oil.
4. Saute vegetables in vegetable juice.
5. Squeeze a fresh lemon on your salad, in lieu of salad dressing.
6. Make a list of your favorite fruits and vegetables and then seek out recipes! If you like banans (and chocolate), try “A Royal Flush” bananas! (see recipe below from my first book, Our Lady of Weight Loss).
7. Air popped popcorn is high in fiber and low in calories.
8. Add veggies whenever possible. To stews, sandwiches, casseroles and salads.
9. Try more fruit desserts (fresh, stewed, and cobblers) instead of cakes and cookies.
10. Remove deep-fried from your vocabulary! Roast, grill, broil, grill, bake, poach, steam, and stir-fry! Resolve to remove deep-fried from your vocabulary, now!
11. Eat unpeeled fruit! The nutrients are in the peel!
12. Use evaporated skim milk in place of half-and-half. Lasts a lot longer, too!
13. Create a healthy pantry. Keep canned beans on hand: chick peas (garbanzo), black beans, black-eyed peas, pink bean, pinto beans, red or kidney beans.
A Royal Flush (a.k.a. Chocolate Banana Delight!)
Servings: 1
Ingredients:
1 medium banana
5 chocolate chips, dark chocolate
1 tbsp slivered almonds, toasted
1 tsp cocoa powder
Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 F
2. With the help of a paring knife carefully open the middle part of the banana, making sure the top and bottom is left intact. Press slightly to open banana. Make five incisions. Place banana on a piece of foil.
3. Press chocolate chips into the incisions and top with almonds
4. Dust with cocoa powder and close the foil around the banana; making a small package
• Bake in oven 15-20 minutes.
