For the past 17 months I have been on a journey to transform my life and my body. Over this time I have seen my life transformed from a woman that physically was 330 pounds and could not walk 15 feet without gasping for air.… Continue

My weight was reaching heights. All the excitement in my life was over. I used to get tired very soon. I had tried many weight loss products to get rid of the excessive weight. But all in vain. And then I came to know about the Jenny Craig
Weight Loss Program. And I decided to go for it. And the results are amazing.
The Jenny Craig method is a three-level food-mind-body plan to help people lose weight and… Continue

Things don't really irk me much and once I write this out, it'll be GONE! DONE! I don't dwell anymore like I use to because life is SO grand and wonder-filled that I just don't have time for it so, gonna put it out here and let it go!
(What I'm doing here is showing you how to live a stress-free life! So many would let something like this go on and on in their heads for DAYS! ... and be binging while doing it. lol)
Anyway, I put out my blog from yesterday on a few sites… Continue

I awakened this morning contemplating weight gain. How fun is that? lol
There are a few ways and reasons I gained in the first place.
First was possibly menopause yet, I'm not sure of that one. I hadn't gained before I got married at 55 and I'd gone into it a few years before OR, maybe I just didn't notice which we'll get into in a bit ~ the noticing, I mean.
One thing I'm sure of is going out and eating. Once I realized how much I'd gained since getting married… Continue

When I first began learning EFT, I had a hard time with tapping on the negative part of the sentences. For so many years, I’ve been saying “Acknowledge but don’t focus” and here, we’re saying something negative and tapping on it?? To me, that was like tapping the negative INTO myself and I had SO much resistance.
What I have found since then though is that the reason we say the negative is to acknowledge and accept where we are. For instance, if someone says, “Even though I… Continue

Christmas parties can be a bane for slimmers trying to lose weight. Not only do they offer the temptations of excessive alcohol consumption and fatty buffets, but for many slimmers the idea of dressing up in front of their work colleagues can be intimidating.
Yet Christmas does not have to embody weight gain
. By incorporating the following tips into your weight management program, it is… Continue

One of the fears I encounter with people who are interested in joining my program
is, that they can’t have something. What happens when emotions come up and they can’t have that comfort food? Those starches? That chocolate? or, whatever it is they crave?
Well, the difference between my program
and weight loss diets is, there is no “can’t have”. What it will come down to is “want to have”.
One of the most… Continue

Last Monday night when training with my teacher and the group, I noticed that my teacher was looking like he'd gained some weight.
After class we were talking and he'd mentioned he'd gained back about 8-10 pounds.
He told me he realized it wasn't about the food; he'd not been doing his former habit of binging and throwing up BUT he was overeating. What he did realize, for himself was that it was about having the good. This makes sense because when we reach a certain level… Continue

I'm sitting here eating one of Rawmazing's
wonderful crepes and marveling at the last 4 days or so.
One thing that's amazing to me is how many people say to eliminate weight, cut out the fats. I don't know what fat they're talking about because I ate 4, count 'em 4 crepes last night and this morning I'm down another pound. When I went raw about 14 years ago, we really didn't have the resources that are available now so pretty much all… Continue

Last night part of the neighborhood got together for a local book signing
. Pretty cool! It was held at Webster's Fine Stationers and we were all right by the door when folks came in.
I also had an opportunity to do smoozie demos. I didn't get a lot of action but some of the other authors did. People either knew them or had heard of them. No one knew me unless they were "friends" from Facebook. Was nice to meet the other authors, one I… Continue

We vacated Sunday because the air here is so bad from the La Canada/Flintridge fire
. The a.m.’s here are really rough because the marine layer presses the smoke down to the ground. The house still smells like a chimney and we really can’t go outside. Inside is very bad air even with fans and a/c.
My throat is hurting again. We were thinking of going back up to Big Bear but are hearing the smoke is traveling up there as well ~ from… Continue

Crap! Woke up this morning with mild headache, sore throat, stuffy nose and such. Got fires near us so, breathing smoke from two directions.
We saw the "Morris Fire" just as it was beginning on Tuesday when we came down from Big Bear Lake. The La Canada/Flintridge fire began yesterday afternoon. The first is only 10% contained; the second, about 20%. As long as the winds stay down, they should get a handle on them. The temps have been VERY high with very low humidity. I'd hate to be… Continue

Ever get to that point where the scale just WONT move??? How frustrating is that? For tappers
, here ya go ~ "Even though I'm often frustrated when looking at the scale, I choose to remain focused on my outcome".
Today, I got on the scale FULLY clothed and it was down to below where I was totally nekkid!!! YAHOOOOO!!
Really been getting some great awarenesses while out walking, in the shower.
Last night in class, one of the… Continue

Yesterday, got up about 4:45 and was out the door by 5 a.m. Had done 8,759 steps by 7:12 so, IF my focus was on 10,000 steps, wouldn't take much more. Didn't go out walking again yet, what I did at home brought me to 10,455. Shows me I don't sit as much as I sometimes think I do.
This morning, thought I'd change up. Fitness is not just about cardio. It's about strength, balance, flexibility as well. I've got all the dvd's yet, one of my favorites is Turbo Jam. Went down to the… Continue

Since I've been really looking at the Fat to Fit program, movement and working/playing with the "Tap Into Your Ideal Weight
" program, I've come to realize how "counting calories" really has very little to do with eliminating excess weight.
Yesterday, I read an online article from Time magazine on "Why Exercise Won't Make You This". Makes total sense to me.
One statement made in the article is, "... while it's true that exercise burns… Continue

Since getting married and going out a LOT and eating whatever's been on my plate AND lots of what HE tends to eat over the last 5+ years, I've found that, eliminating excess fat isn't as easy as it was not so long ago.
I've tried LOTS of things ~ upping my exercise being one. Now, with that, my actual body shape has changed. I've got more muscle; back, legs, arms are stronger; stomach flatter; more stamina; definitely fitter!
I've added more fluid ~ mostly LARGE glasses of… Continue
