Walk Away the Weight

    
Walk Away the Weight

"How is it that Monica does all of that kick boxing, and she's still FAT?" Ouch. Yes, someone actually said that about me just last week. Instead of crawling into a dark corner and crying my eyes out, I took that statement as motivation to recommit to living a healthy lifestyle.

I've never stopped working out, but other circumstances in my life have caused increased stress and anxiety which lead to behaviors such as emotional eating. Stress also causes some to hold onto and ultimately gain weight. Another factor that contributes to my lack of weight loss is that when we continue to do the same type of exercise our body reaches a plateau and needs to be shocked by doing something different.

I took all of these things into consideration and used them as a catalyst to launch my Walk Away the Weight program. So often we get fixated on physical weight loss. Maintaining a healthy weight is important to ward off illnesses such as high blood pressure, hypertension and diabetes, but very ...READ MORE

Don't Wait for the Weight

    
Don't Wait for the Weight

This morning I almost got discouraged when my weight had increased by 5 pounds from yesterday's reading, but then I had to catch myself and remember how the scale can be a true set up. Several factors contribute to the reasons why our weight on the scale may fluctuate from day to day and sometimes throughout the day. From my research I have found that our true weight is the weight that we see first thing in the morning when we wake up after we have used the bathroom. We also must keep in mind that different scales are calibrated differently thus giving us a different reading. Don't pay so much attention to the number. Pay attention to the gain and loss and try to stick with one scale. No matter what actual weight any scale may say, if you lose 5 pounds, you lose 5 pounds, just as 5 pounds of feathers weighs the same as 5 pounds of bricks.

I came to the conclusion that my weight had increased so rapidly due to two factors. One was that I had not used the bathroom yet as I always do w ...READ MORE

Every Wall Has a Window or a Door

    
Every Wall Has a Window or a Door

Recently I took a mini vacation to visit my older brother at his beautiful historic home in Springfield, Massachusetts. There was a door in the room where I slept each night that I hadn't used and I wasn't sure where it led to so I asked him. He explained to me that it led out to the family room before saying, "Every wall in this house has a window or a door." As simple as that sounds, I found it to be quite fascinating. It made me think about how it could be a perfect analogy for how we view our lives.

In life, we come up against many obstacles, barriers, or walls. These walls might be financial hardship, relationship related heartache, neglect or abuse, health issues or loss of prized possessions or loved ones. More often than not, even though they are walls that we cannot literally touch or see, we tend to look at them as very real set-backs or dead ends. Since we cannot see these obstacles with our eyes, why not throw in a bit of blind faith and believe that each wall th ...READ MORE
