Make Weight Loss Easier With Fight Or Flow

Thursday, December 30th, 2010 by admin

I heard the term “fight or flight” growing up. It’s a simple concept explaining the choices we make  during confrontation, and challenges. We do this today even in the simple things, like a disagreement with our child or even just a coworker. Do we stand our ground or let it go?

I would like you to try to choose instead “fight or flow.” The stress we experience every day is a huge contributor to why we ignore our health. It’s why some of us choose food to shove down our feelings. But try this: with every day-to-day challenge or obstacle, you just take a beat and ask yourself, ‘What would bring ease and happiness fastest?’

It’s just an experiment right? So choose Flow… Easy… Happy. It’s good for your body and keeps you upbeat and able to maintain your focus.

What do you find makes things flow for you? What makes you happiest?

“Fat Women Look Better Naked,” Says Tom Ford

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010 by Fable

Former Gucci designer Tom Ford has a unique perspective on overweight women.

“You know, most people actually look better nude. We are all one harmonious color, with a symmetry and an innate elegance,” he said.

And especially larger women, according to Ford.

It’s a rather unusual position to take, especially considering Mr. Ford spent a good deal of his career at Gucci making sure people (women) looked good IN clothes. According to French Vogue’s Editor Carine Roitfeld, Ford “loves beautiful wrinkles” as well.

What do you think?

Look Better Naked? An Overweight Woman’s Biggest Fear

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010 by Fable

Look better naked? OMG!

That’s the position being put out there in a new book by Woman’s Health magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Michele Promaulayko.

Here’s what she says about her new book:

“Look better naked. Does any word cut so close to the core of our deepest insecurities? When we’re naked, it’s not just our bodies that are on exhibit—it’s our hearts, our souls, our very self-worth that feels exposed and ripe for criticism. And if you’re like most women, you know that no one can be as hard on you as well, you.

As the editor-in-chief of Women’s Health, I hear from women every single day who share their greatest fears and their deepest anxieties about their bodies. And invariably, those stem from one thing: how they look naked.

That’s why this book is for you: If you’ve ever looked in a mirror at your naked self and felt anything other than spectacular, then you’ve come to the right place. Look Better Naked is for women who want to look hotter, live healthier, and—perhaps most important of all—feel more confident, in clothes or out of them.”

What do you think about Michele Promaulayko’s book? Do you think 6-weeks gives you enough time? Probably a little tough right now, given the holiday season, parties, food, family, and stockings stuffed with goodies.

Where Are You At Today In Your Weight Loss Journey?

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010 by Fable

Where are you at this morning? Do you feel fat?  Do you feel spunky?

If fat, then spend extra time putting yourself together, to look your slimmest.

If spunky, take this chance to dress a bit sassier, and get ahead of the weight loss project.

We are creatures of how we feel at the time. So use that to your advantage, don’t fight it. When we have a “FAT” day,  it’ll set a whole series of bad eating days in a row if we don’t acknowledge it right off.

NEVER DENY WHAT YOU’RE FEELING! A quick “ok- this is where I’m at today” makes all the difference in how fast we turn around those weaker days.

But when you have a powerful day, acknowledging that can set in motion several strong healthy days in a row just as easily.
