If my brain gets that I’m unpredictable in my food consumption choices within the category of animal-free, then that’s what it will expect as being okay with me. I’ll stay in the unpredictable category and my brain will rest easy with that, since there’s a lot going on there to focus on without needless worryContinue reading “Working It Out With The Main Brain”

After two weeks of reducing fat in my diet, I don’t crave it as much. Even if I start to eat something fatty, it’s easier for me to say no to more. That’s a healthful, helpful result of restricting the amount of fat I eat. Conclusion: The more fat I eat the more fat I want.Continue reading “Fat-Cravings”
Walking Talking To-Do Lists
Just do it and stop talking about it. When I announce in advance that I’m going to do something, it almost feels like I’ve already done it, so I’m not as compelled to complete the pursuit as I might have been had I kept quiet and just done it.
Switch To Boss Mode
STOP FEEDING THE MONSTER. Starve IT. Show IT who’s BOSS.
Skinny people don’t need more fat. They need more healthy food that tastes good in all the plant categories.
Unreasonable Food Expectations
People want me to take an apple and transform it into a thick, juicy, fatty steak, while keeping it raw, that when ingested will melt their excess fat baggage down the toilet in thirty days or less. Why don’t you just stop eating and drinking high caloric foods and beverages? Because when I lose weightContinue reading “Unreasonable Food Expectations”
Dandelions Wanting To Make Your Wish Come True
While walking out and about a few days ago, I came across a patch of dandelion fuzz heads, separated from their stems, just laying on the ground in perfect round form, ready to be picked up and made a wish upon – outside of course, so you can spread the seeds. Seems these dandelions wantedContinue reading “Dandelions Wanting To Make Your Wish Come True”
Gain Reduce Or Stabilize
Cannabilizing other animals is not a smart weight reduction method – short or long-term. It isn’t healthy; it isn’t kind and neither is it efficient. Plants are the only wise choice to make when looking to gain, reduce or stabilize weight.
Everything About It Clicked
Recently I started holding back posts for the purpose of releasing them on the same day every week, in response to reading someplace that people like the consistency of knowing what day new posts are scheduled to be released. In doing this, I sometimes forget to post on the day I commit to, due toContinue reading “Everything About It Clicked”
This Is Crude…but…
Okay, so Steve calls me and says he has an idea. He prefaces it by saying it’s crude, well not so crude, but still crude – a way to lose weight. Or something that could jolt a person into getting serious about losing weight. Of course it wouldn’t be for everybody, but it could helpContinue reading “This Is Crude…but…”
“Two Days At A Time”
Instead of living one day at a time, how about two? What’s wrong with two at a time? Live today cognizant of how you want to feel tomorrow. That gives you more control over what you do today. No ‘Last Supper’ scenarios. Doing for one last time whatever you want to do before the bigContinue reading ““Two Days At A Time””
Lose It, Or Reduce It?
Nobody likes to lose, so ‘losing weight’ might not be the best phrase to apply to your goal of weight reduction. I’m not losing any weight. I’m not losing…is a positive phrase that every human loves to hear or to say to themselves. Yeah I’m NOT losing. I’m not a loser. I like that. MakesContinue reading “Lose It, Or Reduce It?”
Feel Your Weight
I want to feel my weight. Being numb to it isn’t helping to reduce it. When factoring in the time and effort it takes to wake up to it and stay awake, it isn’t worth whatever short-term benefit the ‘numb to it’ provided. So each day for a while, in my mind, I will weighContinue reading “Feel Your Weight”
We tend to think discipline is doing something we don’t feel much like doing, but we suck it up and do it anyway, because it’s good for us or somebody or something else. Quite the contrary. True discipline is finding that which we enjoy doing and then doing it. Suffering is not a by-product ofContinue reading “Discipline Leads”
This Is Why You’re Obese
BECAUSE YOU’RE AN ANIMAL-EATER I can’t help but think of the families of all those enslaved, tortured, slaughtered, broken up, destroyed forever, by the Hand of Human Men & Women & Children who through their actions say, YOU DON’T MATTER BECAUSE WE DON’T CARE.
Can A Strict Eating Schedule Prevent, Treat Or Cure Diseases?
FFC COMMENT > A strict eating schedule could probably assist in weight control as well as lessening the ravaging effects of some diseases and disorders. The world is out of control with its eating habits of eating and drinking something all the time. Even in poor countries I see lots of fat people. I don’tContinue reading “Can A Strict Eating Schedule Prevent, Treat Or Cure Diseases?”
TOO LITTLE – TOO MUCH
Eating nothing makes me weak. Eating too much makes me weaker. That’s my experience with too little and too much. Others go into a panic on your behalf when you don’t eat enough, but they don’t do that when you eat too much.
Something About Weight Watcher’s That Came To My Attention
Curious about their 200 zero points food list that everybody’s been talking about, I surfed the net looking for it, and found I had to go all the way to Canada to get it. It just didn’t seem right. Weight Watcher’s in the USA under the direction I’m assuming of multi-billionaire Oprah Winfrey – she’sContinue reading “Something About Weight Watcher’s That Came To My Attention”
The Urgency Of Now
What am I going to do, sleep the rest of my life away? No. I’m going to get up and greet the day as if I have my whole life in front of me – even though I don’t. If I can pull that off, I’ll be in a good place. Age naturally restricts aContinue reading “The Urgency Of Now”
It’s not the feeling of hunger we need to shut off. We who are fat rarely ‘feel’ hungry. We think it. And right now the brain is more powerful than the gut in those who are overweight. We feel full nearly all the time. It’s when the level of full drops a slight amount thatContinue reading “Eat-To-Store”
Are You Hungry?
Am I hungry? I am not. Am I hungry? No. You sure? I am not hungry, so shut up. You say no, but your actions say yes. You eat anyway. Boundaries need to be repaired. You’ve got a huge leak, when you say no, but act yes. Retrain your brain to accept no as theContinue reading “Are You Hungry?”
Listen While You Work
TIP > I like to watch videos, as I’m sure most of us do, otherwise there wouldn’t be a zillion of them produced on You Tube and other venues. However, watching is time-consuming, so I go for the short clips. But with the talking videos it isn’t necessary to watch – generally speaking – soContinue reading “Listen While You Work”
Tell the voices in your head, no, I’m not going to do that. Tell them no. You’re in charge. Not them. They’re only there to assist not to commandeer your thoughts and take you over. You’re you, not them. Those are only suggestions that you fixate on. Unfixate yourself. You can do it. I knowContinue reading “Unfixate Yourself”
Performing CPR On Yourself
Please pause for 2 minutes and read this: 1. Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job. 2. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. 3. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and upContinue reading “Performing CPR On Yourself”
Old Habits Never Die?
Old habits die hard? Not so fast. Old habits can die and they can die easy. I go to bed earlier than I used to. I feel more refreshed in the morning, and feel better about the day I’m in.
A Motivating Tool|Or Exercise
Yes, making lists is a form of exercise – mental/brain and physical. For me, rarely if ever do I follow the list. It’s the making of one that motivates me to get going again. It doesn’t matter at what. One thing leads to another thing is the continuing motivating force that leads to success inContinue reading “A Motivating Tool|Or Exercise”
Bottled Salad Dressing – cut cost and fat
This is how I extend the more expensive bottled salad dressings, while reducing the fat on my green salads. Follow Your Heart makes good vegan Caesar and vegan Bleu Cheese salad dressings. Steve and I both like them. What I do is drizzle half of one or the other onto my green salad, then addContinue reading “Bottled Salad Dressing – cut cost and fat”
You’re Flooding Me
When you drink a half gallon of carrot juice your brain screams STOP. What are you doing? I don’t want all that vitamin A. Don’t need all that. Slow down. What am I going to do with all that? Where am I going to put it? It’s too much. You’re flooding me. I’m on overload.Continue reading “You’re Flooding Me”
Not Every Day
Not every day. It gets too old, too familiar, too fast. Break it up. Doing something every single day, at the same time in the same way creates a need for it. Rather than helping as designed or expected, it harms. Or it creates a resentment. Boredom sets up a mindset that affects how theContinue reading “Not Every Day”
Control Your Addiction
When you say ‘I can’t help myself’ you relinquish control to food or drink or whatever else you allow to control you. We allow ourselves to be controlled by whatever pleasures us – until it becomes an addiction. Over-eating or under-eating are addictions of control. That being the case, you can control what is controllingContinue reading “Control Your Addiction”
Use Your Instincts
Eat wiser today. You know how to do it. All humans instinctively know what’s good for them to eat and what is not good for them to eat. How many times do you think to yourself or say out loud, ‘I really shouldn’t be eating this?’ That goes for amounts too. Why do you thinkContinue reading “Use Your Instincts”
A Time To Be Careful
I lost a pound today. Well, I was one pound lighter when I weighed myself this morning than I was yesterday morning. This is the time to be careful. There’s something in my brain that happens when I lose one pound. For some strange reason I think, now I can eat, and for another strangeContinue reading “A Time To Be Careful”
We can all do better – at something – than we’re doing now. Choose what you can do better now, then do it. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
GO GET ‘EM TIGER
You’re not the problem. You’re the solution. Hail YOU.
If I were thirty pounds lighter I would do this, do that, go here go there, accomplish something – everything I ever wanted to do, conquer all that needed to be conquered, make all my dreams come true, climb that mountain, reach the sky, be the star I know I am. Do it while you’reContinue reading “WHY WAIT?”
LAY THE FOUNDATION FIRST
Right now I’m not so much concerned about weight, as I am focused on establishing new habits that will eventually lead to the weight loss I desire. Laying the ground work – the foundation – I am. P.S. I’m not sure if this is a rule or a tip. Guess I’ll go for both. No.Continue reading “LAY THE FOUNDATION FIRST”
BEST FOR YOU
Best in your own hands is where your life ought to be. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
MAKE A BIG WISH OUT OF LOTS OF LITTLE ONES
Stop wishing for the big stuff. In order to get the big stuff, lots of little stuff has to happen in the meanwhile, along the way, to pave the way for the big wish to come true. So start working on wishing for the littler stuff, then you make every little wish you make happen.Continue reading “MAKE A BIG WISH OUT OF LOTS OF LITTLE ONES”

CUTTING BACK ON SALAD DRESSING
When I eat out and order a salad, the salad dressing is usually placed on the side of the plate or bowl. In the past I would pour the whole container of dressing over the salad, then ask for another one. Now what I do is keep it to the side and dip the veggiesContinue reading “CUTTING BACK ON SALAD DRESSING”
