Weighty Confession
Forgive Me for I Have Sinned

I found myself in the grocery store spending $48 on nothing but junk food.  I came home, ate two huge fried rolls then Sun Chips, Cheetos, BBQ beef on three buns, a huge box of drumsticks, and candy.
~ Jennifer M.

Motivational Musing
The Greatest Love of All

St. Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and I want to remind everyone that the greatest love of all is self-love.  That’s right … hug yourself, love yourself, and if possible, bestow multiple gifts upon thyself this St. Valentine’s Day!  (gift links below!)

Self-love and weight loss go hand-in-hand and thigh-to-thigh, if you will.

I know how it feels not to like myself and to lead a life of compromise. It’s a big, fat drag.  And now I know how it feels to like – even love myself.  I promise you, it’s a whole lot better and there’s no pastry, chocolate bar, or basket of bread that’s worth it putting self-love on the back-burner.

Love is an art that requires conviction, faith and daily practice. Self-love is within you, always available – ready to comfort and embrace.

Fully accept yourself this St. Valentine’s Day.  You deserve to love yourself, no matter your size, hairstyle (I had the ultimate bad cut a few weeks ago and struggled with self-love.),or  I.Q. (my brother was the smart one!).

Five Fabulous Tips on How to Exercise Your Self-Love Muscle

1. Write out a list of all the things you like about yourself.  If you are short on ideas, ask a couple of good and kind friends.  (Caution: steer clear of critical relatives.)

2. To get your day headed in the right direction, start the morning with a few self-loving affirmations.  Write them first and then say them aloud.  “My loving energy flows through me and out into the universe, connecting with all the Gods and Goddesses of love.” (Okay, a little over the top. I like a touch of drama.) 

3. Every night jot down three things that you are grateful for. “I am grateful that I love myself.”

4. Praise and compliment yourself as often as possible. Criticism is soul crushing. Praise builds.  “Wow, that chocolate smoothie I just whipped up was awesome".  "I am great.” “And woo hoo! Girlfriend, look at yourself in those tight-ass jeans.” 

5. Look adoringly at yourself in the mirror.  Accept yourself just the way you are.   No kidding, you are really fabulous. No need to wait. Love yourself NOW.

Chewing the Fat
Dear OLofWL ~ Shall we make it a Lent to remember to be 10 lb lighter at Easter?  How about that sweetheart? Best wishes, John

Dear OLofWL ~   I'm not Catholic (nor Protestant), but I decided that I would use Lent to sacrifice certains foods, hoping that these sacrificies are enough to support my spiritual growth as well as weight loss!  A Lenten Sacrifice leading to eventual triumph! ~ AG

Dear OLofWL ~ I'm delighted to say that since Lent started on Wednesday, I have given up carbs and chocolate and have permanently removed 2 pounds. ~ PW 

Dear John, AG, PW and all... As you can see, I've recieved a bunch of emails (sampling above) regarding Lent, and it occurred to me that Lent is about sacrifice and repentance and so ...  I ask the following question (without judgment).  Is it kosher (ha!) to give up certain foods for Lent in hopes of a secondary gain (in this case a secondary lose, as in excess poundage)? Just curious how you 'hold' Lent.  Please - do write me!  ~ OLofWL

All Is Forgiven, Move On

Our Lady of Weight Loss™ created the All Is Forgiven, Move On™ (blue) wristband, designed to once and for all put an end to Yo-Yo Dieting.

Our Lady explains why people fail to reach their weight loss goals. “People fail because one dietary transgression sends them into the dark abyss of despair, opening up the floodgates to bingeing and self-deprecating thoughts.

“Forgiveness is the secret to ever-lasting weight loss (a.k.a. permanent fat removal).  To forgive yourself and move on is the most effective way to move you towards your weight loss goals.”
