Our Lady of Weight Loss

The Answer

A friend confessed that she frequently, throughout the day and sometimes throughout the night, visits her refrigerator, tugging on its door – opening and closing it – looking for an answer. Sometimes she looks in the vegetable bin – sometimes in the egg crate or in the freezer. She even looks under the ice trays. On occasion, she gets down low on her knees and peers behind the bottles of ketchup, mustard and mayo. But to no avail.
There are no answers in her refrigerator.
If you hare having difficulty receiving the ‘answer,’ here are few techniques that may help you to dig a little deeper. You may be surprised to find that you uncover a gem!

Chocolate Always and Forever

Janice here, reporting in from Kripala Yoga & Health Center, the Berkshires, Massachusetts, where I am in the midst of leading a workshop entitled “Into the Lite: The Hypnosis Diet for Health, Weight Loss and Well-Being.”
There are thirty tush-kickin’ women in the workshop. This morning’s session centered around our “How to Stay Fat Strategies.” One of the first steps in permanent fat removal is to realize that you are actually a brilliant strategist. As you have figured out how to stay fat, you are most definitely capable of turning the strategy around and figuring out how to permanently, once and for all, removal excess poundage!
I thought I’d share some of these women’s strategies!
We are having a great time. Lots of laughter weaved into solid learning and plenty of aHa moments. It is my mission, after all, to make weight loss FUN.
Our Top Ten Strategies on How to Stay Fat! (direct from Kripalu to You!)
1. Blame someone else; our mother, husband, kids … anyone else!
2. Wear stretchy clothes.
3. Never partake in activities that make you sweat.
4. Go grocery shopping when hungry, and be sure to bust open a bag of chips before you hit the check-out line (yes, do pay for them).
5. Declare Friday greasy pizza day.
6. Delude thyself … often.
7. Believe that food tastes better at midnight.
8. Eat out A LOT.
9. Drink alcohol when eating out.
10. Chocolate always and forever!

Feeling a Bit Like a Puffy Blimp?

Click to Mix and Solve
Is the heroine of our puzzle a fashion victim, screaming from the sheer frustration of it all or just a bit puff-ed out from too many margaritas with salt, sushi dipped in soy sauce and/or popcorn sprinkled heavily with salt?
In other words, someone who is feeling a bit blimpy?
Instant help is on the way. Here’s what to do!
Eat fabulously rich sources of potassium, such as bananas, sweet potatoes and edamame (minus the salt, duh!). Potassium is sodium’s kryptonite. It captures the sodium and flushes the excess out in your urine. Bloating relieved; blimp challenge solved!

More on Water – Part II: Water Fights Bad Breath

Further yesterday’s Water – PART I, where we learned that water is a natural appetite suppressant and helps us to digest our food. It even promotes weight loss and helps the body to metabolize fat into energy, I’d like to take this time to point out some of the other virtues of water.
Water …
fights bad breath!
Carry an extra bottle on you at all times and hand it over when necessary!!!
Water …
helps us to look younger. Skin that is sagging (due to the aging process or weight loss) plumps up beautifully when the skin cells are hydrated.

Water …
improves muscle tone. Hydrated muscles contract more easily, which makes for a more effective workout.
Water …
regulates body temperate,
carries nutrients to and oxygen to cells,
cushions joints,
protects organs and tissues.
Water …
is a natural lubricant. It helps everything slide through your system.
Water …
helps to alleviate depression!
Drink on that!
