Our Lady of Weight Loss

DROWNING in DRAMA

I’m STUCK, SWIMMING, DROWNING in My DRAMA and I CAN’T GET UP.
from Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach and Beliefnet Blogger.
Dear Our Lady of Weight Loss (and Janice), I am OUT of CONTROL. Honestly … OUT OF CONTROL. I did lose 21 pounds some time ago but have gained nearly all of those 21 pounds back. I Have NO CONTROL. I eat whatever, whenever. Please HELP! ~ Jess C.
Dear Jess, In order to permanently remove excess weight we need to change our internal landscape (I don’t mean move your stomach to a new location).
1. Watch and become aware of your language. If you say, “I am OUT of CONTROL,” you are out of control and reinforcing that belief.
2. Let go of ‘the WHY of it’. Asking WHY questions … “Why am I doing this?” “Why me?” may well yield an answer, but not necessarily a strategy to effect change.
3. Ask yourself, “WHAT can I do to move forward?” And then ask yourself “What else can I do? What else? What else?” Make a list of ten actions that can and will move your forward.
4. Stay out of the DRAMA. When you hear yourself saying “The problem is …” watch out! Your drama is fast approaching.
“The problem is that I can’t find a job, because I can’t buy a suit, because I don’t have the money, because my husband left me and took the piggy bank with him, because he was a misery … ” Got it? DRAMA drains our energy and moves us away from implementing positive change.
5. And finally for Jess and anyone out there who thinks that they are out of control … If there is no food in your mouth right now – you are back in control. If there is food in your mouth … spit it out … and you are back in control.

Pat Farnack, WCBS 880 radio said that I was “profound.”
O, The Oprah Magazine proclaimed me a “kooky genius.”
And the Chicago Herald said that I may seem … “one French fry short of a Happy Meal, but when you think about what she’s saying it begins to make sense.”

A YUM Delicious Day: Graciously Gingered and Powerfully Pineapple

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” ~ Galatians 5:22

A YUM Delicious Day! from Janice Taylor, Beliefnet Blogger
Pineapples are juicy, delicious and good for you, too. They are loaded with fiber, manganese (a mineral that helps with digestion), and vitamin C, which is helpful when fighting colds and coughs.
And if I may be so bold, I dare say that pineapples are filled with the juicy and scrumptious spirit of love, goodness and self-control. Fresh pineapple is a natural and delicious way to enhance your health and improve your ability to heal.
The Healing Pineapple also contain an anti-inflammatory enzyme called bromelain.
Bromelain is believed to help:
* reduce inflammation and swelling,
* strengthen bones,
* reduce symptoms associated with sinusitis,
* alleviate symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis,
* promote the healing of injuries (including sprains and strains),
* lessen post-operative swelling, and
* relieve indigestion.
Pineapple is a good source of Vitamin B1, which helps metabolize carbohydrates! And you get a lot of bang for your calorie buck! Only 74 calories per cup.
Note: Pineapples lose bromelain when cooked or canned. Fresh is best!
Righteous Recipe:
Graciously Gingered and Powerfully Pineapple
Serves: 4
Ingredients:
1 juicy, fresh pineapple, with green leaves
1/3 cup light rum or apple juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger root
Fresh Mint Leaves (for garnish)
Directions:
Cut pineapple lengthwise into fourths; remove core (leave green leaves – so pretty!). Cut along curved edges to loosen pineapple from rind without cutting rind. And then cut into 1/2 inch slices. Basically, you want to cut the pineapple so that the pieces will be easily picked up and eaten, and the shell with the green leaves are your serving plate.
Mix rum and ginger root; spoon over pineapple. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Garnish with mint leaves.
Enjoy!

What are you tolerating? Putting up with? STOMACHING?

If you wish to drown, do not torture yourself with shallow water. ~ Bulgarian Proverb
This Beliefnet blogger is just back from teaching a week-long workshop (entitled: Our Lady of Weight Loss ~ Your Fat-Burning Journey to Sveltesville) and wants to know …
What are you tolerating? Putting up with? STOMACHING?
An Illuminating Question that LIGHTENS.
This question was discussed at length this past week, as we explored, discovered, and investigated the various things in our lives that are WEIGHING us down. Things from dust behind the refrigerator to people in our lives; from bad hair days to our own thoughts and beliefs.
I promise you that as you take the time to be honest, be brave, look deep and write down at least 50 things that you are STOMACHING, you will be brought to a place where you can see, feel, experience and even taste your ‘lite.’
The things that you are STOMACHING are in your WAY.
Imagine all your tolerations as stones, twigs, and rocks – maybe even fallen trees – which you have essentially placed (tossed or thrown) onto your path; that you now unconsciously maneuver around.
These stumbling blocks slow us down and sap our energy. As you clear your path, you will build your ‘clear sailing muscle.’ It will become increasingly easier to recognize and to say no to anything that would slow you down.
Have Second Helpings.
Let the weight and heaviness of your tolerations go. Create an airy and spacious path. Have second helpings of fun and happiness.
What are YOU stomaching? What’s weighing YOU down?
Spread the word (NOT the icing!),
