Don’t get spooked by the Halloween Candy!

Here is an excerpt from my book TimerDiet Chapter 7—Holidays and Various Events: “Halloween: Don’t buy candy that you will want to eat yourself. There is usually some kind of candy that is not very tempting to you. For me, these candies are Almond Joy, Hot Tamales, and Gummy Bears—they just don’t do it for me, so I feel very safe buying them. However, do not get me around a bag of Snickers, Reese’s, or M&M’s. I will eat them in a heartbeat! Keep this in mind when you pick up goodies to hand out. No one needs to know that you are not crazy about the candy you hand out. When there are leftovers, you won’t be tempted to eat them, nor will you be tempted to open the bags ahead of time to get a taste.

If you have children and are used to getting into their candy, decide this year, it is hands-off! How much and how often you allow the kids to eat is a personal decision that you will need to make. If you can give some away to a good cause, do so. Some dentists have a program in which you bring in your Halloween candy and they donate it to the troops.”

Get a Head Start on the Holidays!

With all the “eating” holidays coming soon, it is important to have some good information to make sure that you don’t gain weight and if you are in the middle of losing weight to make sure you stay on track!! (It CAN be done xoxo)

Accountability

Diet Plans Where You are Accountable to Someone Else May Backfire!

We hear about having an accountability partner and be accountable to someone else for your diet plan. Is this really working? I can’t imagine asking my best friend to tell me to my face when they think I am screwing up and being “happy” about them telling me. Let’s even go to a worst case scenario. Your friend is also losing weight and by all accounts is being perfect and losing weight faster than you. Now you have your best friend on your case and losing weight faster than you are. Will this motivate you? Or make you give up and say, “I just don’t want to play this game anymore!”?

So try these new rules for being accountable to you and only YOU:

Exercise for YOU!

Exercise for YOU!

  1. Do not tell anyone that you are planning on losing weight
  2. Keep a journal of what you ate so you can learn how certain foods affect you
  3. Always do things that you love to do
  4. Never create a reward system for reaching your weight loss goals
  5. Keep a journal of your exercise progress, see how much you are able to increase in time and weight, it is exciting!

Diets and weight loss plans are all over the place right now and it can be a little overwhelming. Just remember that you have the power to lose the weight you want within you! Keep your friends for fun, sad times, and someone to talk with.

The Scale!

My Scale IS My Best Friend

This morning I woke up and I was at my “Whoa” weight…a first in at least 6 months. I don’t say this to brag, but to tell you that my scale is really my best friend.

  • She tells me when I am doing good
  • She tells me when I am in danger
  • And like a real best friend–she only tells me when I ASK!!You Have Lost the Weight!

If you haven’t finished my recent book TimerDiet, then you may be asking what the “Whoa” weight is. In Chapter 9—Now That You Have Lost the Weight, I discuss how to maintain your weight in great detail so that you do not end up gaining the weight back. I found that when I had lost weight in the past (not weighing myself daily) there was usually a time where I was a size smaller than I had planned. I would stay there for a few weeks and then go back up even more than where I wanted to be. So I discuss how to avoid this in Chapter 9.

I hear so many times all the downfalls of my “best friend” the scale:

  • There could be other things happening that affect your weight like muscle mass
    • So she may not have the whole picture
  • You will go crazy if you check your weight every day since it fluctuates
    • So she may constantly give you feedback that you cannot handle
  • Once a week is more than enough to weigh yourself
    • So much could happen is a week, that she wasn’t able to warn you about
  • You missed some days where she wanted to tell you—You did a great job!!
  • You should just know by the way your clothes fit
  • You shouldn’t need to ask your best friend since you are all knowing

To all these objections I say, “Hogwash!” It is just her reflection of the situation, she is unbiased, and she has nothing to gain by giving you inaccurate information. It only takes 15 seconds every morning after you have woken up and emptied your bladder. And just like a best friend, you don’t have to agree with her!!
