Safeguard Your Resolutions

Jan 11, 2018

 

If someone asked me to name what I teach in one word, the answer might surprise you.

 

It’s not “Maintenance” or “Prevention” or even “Weight Loss” (ok, that’s two words). 

 

What I ultimately teach is Compassion

 

Self-compassion, more specifically. 

 

In the almost 2 decades I’ve been working with people to lose and keep off weight, it has become increasingly clear that self-compassion is the...

Happy New Year!

Dec 28, 2017

 

January 1st can be a great time for reflection and goal setting. 

 

Really anytime can be. 

 

Birthdays are a good one.  Beginning of any month.  The start of a season.  Monday.

 

No matter the day, the feeling is the same—renewal and hope.

 

I love those feelings.  Clean slate.  The whole year/month/day ahead of you. 

 

Possibility

 

Many of us want to act on that feeling—let’s get stuff...

Hey, Sugar!

Dec 21, 2017

 

Is it just me, or is this year’s Holiday Season particularly egregious when it comes to the amount of refined sugary treats around?

 

I know Holiday time is bound to have sweets, but really . . .

 

Here’s what I’ve been reminded about concerning the white, processed, powdery substance:

 

1. Sugar is addictive—and I don’t mean kinda like addictive, I mean in every sense of the word addictive.  Not everyone is susceptible (like alcohol),...

Hearts and Bellies

Dec 14, 2017

 

This time of year always reminds me of a story:

 

There was a wise, kind King, beloved by his subjects, who was about to retire.

 

(OK, so when I first heard this in the late 1970’s, the King wanted to marry off his daughter to the suitor of his choice. I’ve tweaked the story a bit to keep the good and eliminate the misogynistic.

 

He had no children and loved his kingdom, so he wanted to leave it in good hands. 

 

He devised a contest, and...

Gifts of the Season

Dec 07, 2017

 

It’s gift-giving season. And I have a confession to make.

 

I’m a terrible gift giver. 

 

I was born this way.

 

I’m just not the best shopper.  If it can’t be found on Amazon, I’m not finding it. 

 

I’m ecstatic when someone tells me what they want.  I’m great at getting things done.  Checked off the list!  You got it. 

 

I know, I know, it’s not that romantic or surprising or...

Postmortem

Nov 30, 2017

 

How did your Thanksgiving go? 

 

I know for many of you, planning worked—congratulations!  You discovered that it’s possible to have a meaningful, memorable time without regretting food choices. 

 

Nice job.

 

For the rest of us—we can love ourselves anyway and learn from the things we could’ve done better. 

 

In fact, it’s one of the ways humans learn best—from things going awry.  But the learning only...

Just a quickie this Thanksgiving to say I am grateful for you, your friendship and following.

May you and your whole family enjoy health, happiness and peace this season and always.

And laughter too . . .

I leave you with this sincere Thanksgiving Day wish:  (found on quotesgram.com)

 

 

Plan, Plan, Plan!

Thanksgiving is . . .

Nov 16, 2017

 

. . . many things—family, warmth, love, friends, gratitude, service and food.

 

But it’s just one meal. 

 

One meal.

 

Lots can happen in that one meal, but if it stops there—no major problem.

 

The bigger issue is the long weekend associated with Thanksgiving and the potential for a slide on the slippery slope through the rest of the Holidays. 

 

The key here is to put the Thanksgiving meal in its place.  One meal.

The Gifts of Daylight Saving Time Ending

Nov 09, 2017

 

Daylight Saving Time ended last weekend and while we are still adjusting to the darker evenings, consider this:

 

We have a golden opportunity here. 

 

We can fix two problems in one fell swoop: the problem of getting to bed too late and the problem of not having enough time in the morning.

 

Many people struggle to get to sleep at a reasonable time. 

 

Getting to bed may not be the issue. 

 

Often we get into bed early enough, but then we watch...
