Be the SMARTEST SMARTASS Ever!

There are the SMARTEST Goals. And THEN …
… and only THEN
… there are SMART-ASS Goals.

I thought that now might be a good time to revisit goal setting! After all, it is a New Year, and while I don’t necessarily believe in resolutions, since we rarely stick to them, I do believe that the New Year presents an opportunity to reflect, to be contemplative and to set “Smartest Goals!”
When I first started my journey on the rocky road to Sveltesville with Our Lady of Weight Loss at my side, I did not know how many pounds I wanted to permanently remove. Nope, no number in mind.
I figured I’d take it one day at a time, one pound at a time! And that ranks up there as being one of the SMARTEST things I’ve ever done. If I had thought “I must lose 50 pounds,” I probably would have felt completely overwhelmed and consoled myself with a trip to the bakery!
Here follows my guidelines for SMARTEST goals. The perfect yardstick, so to speak, to know if you need to tweak your goal or not. Remember, we are picking small goals … taking it one day at a time … one pound at a time.
S – Goals must be SPECIFIC and the more specific the better. State your goal in as exact of terms as possible.
M – Your goal should be MEASURABLE. Think about what will be the measurement of your goal. (It’s not always about pounds lost. Could be to stay away from candy bars today!)
A – Goals should have ACCOUNTABILITY. Who or what are you accountable to for your goal? Our Lady of Weight Loss, of course!
R – Goals must be REALISTIC. Unrealistic goals will lead you off the path of health and happiness and straight into destruction valley! Yikes.
T – Targets should be TIME based. What’s your time-table for completion, and stick to it. FYI, when it comes to Permanent Fat Removal, I generally advise that one’s goal be: I will eat healthfully and stay on plan for (period of time). This way, I’m not driven mad by the scale, knowing that if I am eating healthfully and on plan, the pounds will have to move out.
E – Goals should be EXCITING! Woo hoo EXCITING and you will meet them faster. So now add on a reward or an event or something that links your goal to excitement. Or just imagine what’s at the other side of the rainbow. Wow, that IS exciting.
S – If you STRETCH yourself ever-so-slightly, outside your comfort range, your brain will manufacture dopamine – a happy drug.
T–Does your goal speak to your TRUTH? Is it in alignment with your bigger picture?
Oh, now for SMART-ASS goals!
I was telling my husband about my SMARTEST Goals.
And he said, “How about Smart-ass goals. If you are the SMARTEST, then you can be a SMART-ASS.”
I said, “Be serious.” To which he responded, “I am serious.”
“Then what does the A-S-S stand for?”
“AUTHENTIC * SASSY * SATISFIED (and Satisfying!)”
So – if you want to be a SMART-ASS, be the SMARTEST!
Spread the word … NOT the icing!

Bob Greene, I Have 5 FAT-Burning Questions for YOU!!!

bob greene.jpg
If you’ve been following the “Oprah Weight Gain, 200 Pounds of Pure Love Series,” then you know that Bob Greene, Oprah’s personal weight loss guru (who – to my knowledge – has not personally experienced the battle of the bulge) is leading a ‘weight loss/best life‘ webinar on Monday night. He has put forth his five ‘deep-thinking’ (NOT) questions for all who struggle with weight loss to ask themselves. (See below.)
Here follows what I have to say to Bob … and to you, too!
Dear Bob, Your 5 questions are pretty good. BUT, if I were to be perfectly honest, which I have a tendency to be, they’re not extraordinary. They are milk-toasty simple. In other words, while your questions are sound bitable, they do not ensure deep-get-to-the-core-of-the-issue thinking.
I, Bob … on the other hand… have come up with five fat-burning questions that will not only blow-the-fat-cells-out-of-your-mind, present an entirely new perspective, but they will also bring a smile to your face (giving a-HA moments a new meaning)!
It is my mission, you know, to MAKE WEIGHT LOSS FUN! Truly, does it have to be so heart-breaking, heavy? If you can’t laugh at your fat … and Oprah, Bob … I do not see you laughing – then you are sunk! Aren’t you?

Five a-HA! Questions from Janice Taylor, 50 Pound BIG-TIME-Loser
(who has kept the weight off for over 7 years!)
designed to BLOW the FAT CELLS Out of YOUR MIND, Bring a SMILE to Your Face, Energize, Empower, Motivate, Inspire and More! (WOWZER!!!)

1. What is your STAY FAT STRATEGY? Yes, you have one. You are very successful at staying fat, aren’t you? (You will laugh hard when you read this one!)
2. What are you TOLERATING? What are you STOMACHING, PUTTING UP WITH? Here, we explore, discover and investigate the various things that are 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.’
3. What’s FEAR got to do with it? Hmmmm … everything! DUH!! Truth be told, there’s no way around fear … you can only move through it!
4. How will you FILL UP on HAPPINESS (Video included!!!)! Watch before breakfast! I was recently talking to one of my star coaching clients (each and everyone of you a star in your own way). Betty (the names have been changed to protect the innocent) said, “I know I should fill up on happiness instead of food.” Now, you can fill up on happiness … get your gluesticks ready!!!
5. Are you DROWNING in DRAMA? (I’ll say YOU ARE!) 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. (Bob, three of your five questions are ‘why’ questions. Why is a dead-end.) When you hear yourself saying “The problem is …” watch out! Your drama is fast approaching.
Here are Bob’s questions:
1. What are you hungry for?
“The weight is always representative of something other than what it looks like,” Oprah says. “You don’t have a weight problem; you have a self-care, self-love problem.”
2. Why are you overweight?
“It’s not because you like a certain food,” Bob says. “Get deep into it.”
3. Why have you been unable to maintain weight loss in the past?
“This one is really more about ‘Why have you failed?'” Bob says. (PS from JANICE: Celebrate Failure! You really need a new perspective on this one.)
4. What in your life is not working?
“You’re going to find the answers in those areas that you say are really important to you,” Bob says. “But they’re not doing well.”
5. Why do you want to lose weight?
“If any part of your answer hints that you’ll be happy at a certain size or weight, you’re setting yourself for failure because [there are] two outcomes,” Bob says. “You never reach that size or weight and you’re never happy. And even worse, you reach that size and weight and realize it has nothing to do with your happiness.”
Bob, feel free to write me. You guys can, too. FYI Bob … you and I (I’m sure you don’t remember) appeared on the same bill in Seattle, at the National Northwest Women’s Show. I spoke before you and we signed books together. I gave you one of my books. If you misplaced it or need a new copy, let me know! :)
Respectfully, with love and humor!
Spread the word … NOT the icing!
Janice

The Laws of Accountability

ACCOUNTABILITY POWER: One of the most powerful principles you can follow in your quest to be the best you ever (as if you’re not good enough already?????) is to follow the Laws of Accountability.
Accountability will keep you on track!
Just knowing that someone is going to ask you about your progress with your weight loss (or any other) goal can keep your fires burning bright and ensure that you stay steady the course.
How to Stay Accountable!
FIND YE AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER: You cannot be accountable to yourself. It NEVER works. You need to partner with someone, a close friend, co-worker, a virtual buddy … someone with whom you set a time and date to ‘account’ to every week. You don’t have to make a big deal over it. You can e-mail each other; talk on the phone for a few minutes. But this is ONE INGREDIENT in your WEIGHT LOSS Recipe that is a must; no substitutions allowed!
WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS. 75% of what we write down happens. It sets the brain in motion.
CREATE A WEEKLY ACTION CHECKLIST. What MUST you do to ACCOMPLISH your goals?
DECLARE IT. Tell people what you are going to achieve and by when (be realistic). If you are adamantly against declaring your weight loss goals to your family and friends, then find a group of people on-line that you do NOT know and tell them. Stand on your roof top and yell it to the world. I don’t know how you will declare it, but I trust you will find a way to DECLARE IT TO BE SO.
CELEBRATE YOU. Jump up and down and celebrate how fabulous you are; how committed you are to yourself. How you keep on moving forward in the face of chocolate, the holidaze glaze, and life in general.
I INVITE YOU to be Accountable to Me!
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
Janice
