For Oprah: 200 Pounds of Weight Loss Tips

I’m still wrapped up, more or less, in Oprah’s 200 pounds. I can’t stop thinking about her process, and wondering what she might have thought or felt the first time a zipper busted along her 40 pound weight GAIN journey. Yup, quite the journey!
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not coming from a judgmental place. I mean, I’ve been there. Oh yeah! More than once. More than twice. I’ve yo’yo’ed my share! I’m in sympathy with Oprah and at the same time I really want to give her one mighty KICK in the TUSH!!!
So, while I say “Oprah, wow, you must feel really crappy; and wow! It must be really hard for you to be center weight loss stage again!” I also want to say, “Oprah, what were you thinking? Clearly, you haven’t been paying attention to anything that I’ve been saying. The first rule of permanent fat removal is to make your home your safe haven. And you did NOT!”
Permanent Fat Removal Tip #1 – Guaranteed to Save you at Least 10 Pounds Worth of Fatty Upset … MAKE YOUR HOME YOUR SAFE HAVEN.

If the Devil’s food knows your name and calls out to you, teasing you and tempting you, and you feel compelled to answer it, touch it, lick it, or nibble on it, best get rid of it NOW!
I realize that this may be a jarring thought. Perhaps your relationship with cake has been your most successful and long-standing relationship to date, and you are reluctant to give it up. Permit me to assure you that you will survive. While separation anxiety can be painful, it will pass, allowing you to go into the ‘lite.’
Keeping your home clear of these items; in essence making your home a safe haven affords you an opportunity to establish healthy, solid habits. It is essential that you create an environment that supports your permanent fat removal efforts; a place where you are as free as possible from excessive food thoughts.
Now, give the Twinkie, the Devil’s food, or that chocolate bar that you have hidden in the back of your refrigerator to your neighbor or the doorman, or donate it to your local church or ship it overseas.
(FYI … More great fat burning steps available in: ALL IS FORGIVEN, MOVE ON, the best permanent fat removal book ever! And yes, 190 pounds of weight loss tips to come from me to you and Oprah!

Oprah: 200 Pounds and Embarrassed? Let it go, you’re the Big O!!!

Some time ago, I wrote Oprah a letter and posted it on her website.
“Dear Oprah,” I wrote, “If I can permanently remove over 50 pounds, so can you. Why don’t you come and visit with me. Stay a week. I’m willing to bet you’ll lose weight. And it’s not like I’m starving myself or doing much exercise either. It’ll be fun.”
After I sent this note via her website, I totally freaked out. I mean, what is she actually showed up? Without warning? She does that kind of surprise stuff on her show. What if the house were a mess? Would she sleep on an air mattress? What about the floors? They needed to be buffed up for sure!
I got so wound up and caught in the web of my own fantasy that I actually ran out to Bed Bath and Beyond and stocked up on cleaning fluids and a Swiffer floor cleaning kit. It’s still in the closet. Floors still in need of polish!
So, when I read in today’s AP article that Oprah weighs 200 pounds and she’s embarrassed about it, I had the same urge to reach out.
So here goes … Oprah, if you are reading this, seriously … come and visit with me. I’m in NYC, in fact, around the corner from Maya, so we can all hang together. I’ll make huge batches of vegetable soup. Are you good at chopping? Because I’m not.
We can walk around the park, go to the post office together. And watch Oprah at 4 p.m. together. How funny would that be!
And I am willing to bet you whatever it is that you’d like to bet that if you stayed with me, a 50 pound big-time-loser, you’d be a loser, too!

Note that O, the Oprah magazine says I am a ‘kooky genius.’ Wild coincidence!!!
Oprah, If I can, you can. For goodness sake. Come! Stay! We’ll talk; we’ll walk; we’ll eat fruits and vegetables; we’ll laugh it up while we slim down together.
I’m taking a risk, you know, by posting this. Oprah could show up. I better get crackin’ and cleanin’!

Recession Proof Laughs: Cheap and Easy

Slim Down While You Laugh It Up! by Janice Taylor
Did you know that laughter~
* Reduces levels of certain stress hormones.
* Boosts the immune system.
* May lead to hiccupping but will dislodge mucus plugs from the respiratory tract! (Oh, how appealing!)
* Gives you a full body workout (works the diaphragm and abdominal, respiratory, facial and back muscles).
* Ever feel exhausted after the giggles? You just had an aerobic workout. (My kind of exercise!)
* Gets those positive endorphins pumping! Laughter invokes feelings of happiness and joy!
* Promotes creative thoughts.
* Creates bonding with your fellow human. Nothing better than a shared laugh!
Here are a few yuks to start your week and to help you bond with your neighbor!
“My wife will say this to me – “Honey, I want you to tell me if I’m getting fat.” And I say, “All right, and you tell me if I start getting retarded.” ~ Jeff Foxworthy
“It serves me right for keeping all my eggs in one bastard.” ~ Dorothy Parker
“Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and give her a house.” ~ Lewis Grizzard
“My mother buried three husbands – and two of them were just napping. ~ Rita Rudner
“We never talked to each other in my family. We communicated by putting Ann Landers articles on the refrigerator.” ~ Judy Gold
CAUTION: Don’t Tease, If You Please … New York University’s latest research indicates that a well-meant joke is more than likely to be taken the wrong way. To avoid unknowingly hurting someone’s feelings make yourself the butt of your jokes.
What’s your favorite one-liner (or two)? Comment below!
