The Alien Made Me Eat It!

Our Lady of Weight Loss Alien.jpgAlien or Addict? by Janice Taylor Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner, Author, Columnist and 50-pound-big-time-loser. (Write Janice for a Free Consult).
I received the following E-emergency note the other night from a client of mine – who by the way – has permanently removed 18 pounds in the past 12 weeks.
I thought it worth sharing, because I know that we all have ‘alien’ voices in our heads that ‘make’ us eat the donut, cookie, ice cream, pizza. That’s right … you are not alone. Seems we all have an alien voice that ‘makes’ us go hog wild.
Janice!! HELP! There is some alien in my body trying to tell me I want cookies, ice cream, candy. Make it stop!! ~ Love, Joy
Dear Alien … Joy promised herself that she would NOT eat JUNK food today. A simple promise.
If she gives into JUNK, she will feel bad. She will feel a kind of loss. Thing is once one sets a goal or promises themselves something, their brains believe it to already be so. So, on the deepest levels Joy’s brain believes that she already let go of JUNK. As you can imagine, if she now has some, she will feel just awful. She will feel loss.
Now, I’m guessing – Ms. or Mr. Alien – that neither one of us want Joy to feel bad. Do we? We want her to be happy. Right? We want Joy to be joyful!
I know it’s tough for you, Alien. You’re voice has been heard, loud and clear, for a long time. We respect your power. We (Joy and I) are going to take some time together and see if we can’t find you another job. Something else for you to be in charge of. If you, Alien, have any helpful thoughts on what you might ‘man’ for Joy, let us know.
That’s right – Alien – you can help Joy focus on something positive. Yes, you can!
Joy deserves to have a happy and healthy life. Junk won’t do it. So, Alien, again, we welcome your helpful and useful suggestions. Love, Janice
My response to Joy’s email, FYI … helped her enormously. Not only did she smile – even laugh – she got into it. She’s busy creating new and useful inner-positive-conversations, as she not only permanently removes her excess weight – but as she changes her belief systems and thinking. Cheers and Kudos to JOY!! You Rock, Joy!
Now, I’d like to ask YOUR inner-Alien … “Alien to my Beliefnet friends and Kick in the Tush Club members and all those out there who happened to stumble across my blog, How might you create a new position for yourself? You sure are powerful, smart, clever and have a strong voice that we all hear. You can still be an Alien. We don’t want to take anything away from you or make you go away. We just want to live in a more harmonious inner-house with you.”
Please … do let us know … me and Joy – what your Alien is up to and what your inner-conversation with your alien looks like!
Spread the word, NOT the icing,
Janice

Lose Weight: The Fat Gene Diet

fat gene artDo NOT Accept Delivery of Your Ancestors ‘Fat Genes’ by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader & 50-pound big-time-loser. (write Janice for free consult)
It is a w i d e l y held belief within my family of origin that all us women are ‘naturally fat.’
I get a giggle from that, don’t you? So much energy expended on wishing to be ‘naturally thin,’ when the ‘naturally fat’ gene was implanted, like a computer chip, before I was born.
The Taylor ‘Fat Gene’ Theory has been passed down from generation to generation. It was seemingly predetermined. And, as a member of this illustrious group, I complied. As you know (or may not know), I was born fat – the only baby in the hospital nursery to gain weight.
So why would someone like me, or you, who has this deeply rooted belief about themselves, whether passed down from mother to daughter, or father to son, or mother to son, or father to daughter … generation after generation, or a relatively new self-imposed belief that you are ‘naturally fat,’ even try to lose weight?

Our Lady of Weight Loss Invites You to
Refuse Delivery of the Family Fat Genes


Take in a deep breath and let it go … on the exhale, see this negative belief float out the sides of you with the fall of your chest or stomach (note where your exhale is coming from), hear it gurgle, buzz, or even clink or clank its way from the inside to the outside, feel the possibilities and know that you now have a clear path to dream. Do NOT accept delivery of your ancestors’ ‘fat genes.’
Take stock of the various ideas, dreams and visions that are buried within. Be willing to invest in your dreams and yourself.
Have faith in yourself. Trust your instincts.
Question your beliefs that stand in your way of your ability to fully commit to yourself.
Own your power; claim what’s yours!

BREATHE DEEP: Lose Weight

Your Breath, Your Metabolism, Your Weight by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader & 50-pound Big-Time-Loser! (write Janice for free consult)
Our weight depends on a complicated blend of variables – from how much we move (exercise), to what we eat, how much we eat, how we feel about ourselves, to hereditary factors.
Our weight is even linked to how we breathe.
Breathing can:

  1. Affect our metabolism.
  2. Affect the quantity of food we ingest.
  3. Make us feel better mentally, physically & emotionally.
  4. Calm us.
  5. Release endorphins, which help us to feel happy.
  6. Enhance our appearance.
  7. Make us feel instantly stronger and thinner.
  8. Revitalize and energize every cell in our bodies.
  9. Increase our energy level.

All of this can aid our weight loss effort. Healthy breathing helps us maintain the right balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in our cells, which has a favorable impact on our metabolism.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, University of Massachusetts Memorial Health Care Center, says “Every breath, actually, is a release not only of air, but all the pent-up energy in the body. Every in-breath can be restoration or revitalization, and every out-breath a letting-go of anxiety or anger or tension or irritability.”
Instead of stuffing down your feelings with food, breathe.
It’s natural. It’s free. And it’s easy.
Try some basic breathing!

Emotional Eating Bail Out

Leave Your Rage On the Page by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader and 50-pound big-time-loser! (Write Janice for free consult)
In these particularly precarious and nerve-wracking times of Wall Street meltdowns, plummeting portfolios, free-falling 401Ks, decreased property value, companies crashing, and a $700 billion Bail Out – all happening within the span of a few days – some of us may find ourselves reaching for the tried and true, all time feel-better fix – food, food and more food!
While the financial Bail Out may be necessary (the Democratic pundits make sense; Wall Street is mega-screwed up, but we must protect Main Street), I’m definitely NOT in favor of the Emotional Bail-Out!
People, let’s get a grip on our emotions. Let’s face the anxiety, stress, anger and dismay together. Let’s seek non-food related ways to calm ourselves. Let’s not use these crazy times as an excuse to stuff copious amounts of sweets, carbs, cakes, 32 oz. porterhouse steaks in our mouths to quiet and placate.

There’s no point in trying to escape the upset, frustration, rage, or the disappointments. I, for one, will not let this fiscal crisis wreak havoc with the one thing I can control – my food! I will not let it intrude upon my healthy life. They may have stripped my retirement fund of cash and dignity, but not my resolve.
So, while it is begrudgingly okay to say yes to the Financial Bail Out, I say NO to the emotional eating bail out! No back room deals, rationalizing that you’re stressed out, so it’s okay to go off half-baked and eat a freshly baked anything!
Let’s remain vigilant. Do NOT stuff it down. Do NOT let the weight of the world’s financial woes weigh you down. Here is one sure way to hold on to your healthy way.
LET IT OUT! Join with me, and leave your rage, anger, upset, frustration, sadness, hopelessness, incredulity on the page (and not on your hips, thighs, and stomachs).
Comment … more than once if necessary!!!
