January 23rd, 2018 In It

January 23rd, 2018 In It

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with great support.

It's been a long day. Stressful too, in many ways. As a first-class emotional/stress eater, it takes intentional actions to not go the way of the food. I stay connected more, I pause more, I plan and prepare more--and I do because if I'm not "in it" than I'm "out of it," and I love being "in it" too much.

I had a late visit with mom tonight. She's feeling some better and her spirits are much better tonight since she got her hair done today. It looks great! And she feels better when the hair is better. It doesn't matter how many times I tell her how beautiful she is with or without her hair fixed, it's what she believes that matters. She's battling a persistent bronchitis type cough. And she's still being treated for infection and various side effects of medicines, but all things considered, she's doing better. Except her blasted phone--the ringer isn't working!! I fiddled with it for awhile tonight and I'm convinced it's broken somehow, someway. 

The next session of the weight loss accountability & support group I co-facilitate with Life Coach Kathleen and Jordan Burgess is set to start in less than a week!! I made a video earlier this evening all about this next session:

January 22nd, 2018 Someday

January 22nd, 2018 Someday

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with wonderful support.

I mentioned the other night about how I used to stay up late watching Richard Simmons infomercials for inspiration. I always found it with anything Richard did, because he was so real and so compassionate. When he looked at and spoke directly to the camera it was as if he was speaking directly to me--like he knew me so well.

Richard always featured real people too, like my friend and co-facilitator of A Better Weigh Weight Loss Accountability and Support Groups, Coach Kathleen Miles. Kathleen worked closely with Richard, from infomercial appearances to QVC, and talk shows.

What I didn't know all those years ago was, someday--years later, Kathleen, whom I certainly watched numerous times with Richard, would someday, many years later--join my group as a member. Kathleen had remarkable progress as a member of this group and now, she continues her personal progress and daily practice right along with the rest of us as a trained and certified Life Coach.

You see, that's part of what makes this group work so well because each of us works our personal plan.  I do, Kathleen does, so does Jordan--all of us are "in the same lifeboat!" We mentor and coach from a place of experience. We can help you define the "You Plan" that works for you--and as a support team, you're getting our best each and every day.

Kathleen produced a wonderful video today describing the group and explaining how it works. I'd love for you to give it a watch and listen.



To find out more-- email: betterweigh@outlook.com or send an email to my personal email account: transformation.road@gmail.com

Our next session starts January 29th and 30th. Are you ready for something different? Are you willing to try a different approach and perspective? Kathleen, Jordan, and I would love to have you on our team!

Make your "someday" today. Contact me and let's do this together!

January 21st, 2018 Small Stuff

January 21st, 2018 Small Stuff

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with support.

I've been working on my move most of this day. All the big stuff is done--now it's small stuff. I'm taken breaks for meals and a couple visits with mom today and tonight. She's taken a couple steps back in her recovery. In fact, they (her nursing center) called in the middle of the night because they thought I might want to take her to the hospital again. Instead, the doctor was called and they decided on a course of action to treat the lingering issues.

My food has been good today--and by good, I don't just mean delicious! You know what I mean.

I'm tired tonight--getting to bed very soon.

January 20th, 2018 Powerful Ten

January 20th, 2018 Powerful Ten

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with good support.

Remember the late night infomercials that brought about your greatest dreams and desires? I do. I'd stay up late watching Richard Simmons infomercials mostly, and others too--whatever inspired me in those moments. The testimonials always got me good, bringing emotions to the surface as I watched people speak of their weight loss and how it changed their lives. I wanted it too. But inspiration fades when it's clouded by self-doubt--and that's mostly what I had for nearly twenty years near, at, and above 500 pounds.

Things changed dramatically for me when I changed my approach and perspective. When the clouds of self-doubt started to clear, I was able to embrace a plan I could live with each day. As consistency brought steady results, it fueled an empowered enthusiasm. Even though it wasn't and isn't perfect, ever--the change in perspective and approach continues to this day, and it helps keep me in a position to grow--to evolve, to transform. 

I wish there were magic words I could type that would clear your clouds of self-doubt. All I can do is simply type: I know it's in you too because I'm here. And I'm not different from you or anyone else. 

I was approached by a very nice lady at an event today. She wanted to talk about this transformation stuff--and prefaced her words with, "I don't want to bother you with this because I'm sure you get it all the time--you're probably tired of talking about it!" I assured her it wasn't a bother in the slightest--in fact, talking about this is something I'm most passionate about. We proceeded to have an amazing conversation about the patterns of struggle and also about ideas on how to change those patterns. She lit up as if she'd discovered something hidden within her forever. It was only a ten-minute conversation, but it was a powerful ten minutes.

If you think this is simply a sales pitch to get you to join the accountability and support group I cofacilitate with Kathleen Miles and Jordan Burgess, you're wrong. It's a sales pitch to get you to look at what's inside you. You certainly don't have to join our group to find it.

Whatever you do, I hope you'll create strong accountability and support measures--and I hope you'll surround yourself with people that truly understand the struggle and pursuit of something different.

If you do choose to join our team, we have a spot for you in our next 8-week session starting January 29th and 30th. I highly recommend the new Monday late group conference call at 7:10pm Central/8:10pm Eastern. It requires a $120 investment. It also requires a willingness to embrace an open mind, look at different approaches, and consider new or different perspectives.

January 19th, 2018 A Difference

January 19th, 2018 A Difference

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with support.

It's not a weight loss plan. It's a tool to help strengthen and support the plan that's working and sustainable for you. And if you need help identifying what works well for you, we can help you fashion your plan!

This group is all about support and accountability.

I co-facilitate the group with certified Life Coach Kathleen Miles and Jordan Burgess. It's a diverse group! Members range from just getting started with more than 100 pounds to lose to maintenance mode and everywhere in between. It really doesn't matter where each of us are along this road, we can all relate, and that's one of the key elements in why this group works.

The mental/emotional dynamics of weight loss and the power of good accountability and support is universal. This group makes a difference.

We currently have openings for our next session starting Monday January 29th and Tuesday January 30th. The group uses one "secret" and secure Facebook page with four different weekly support group call options. The accountability and support of the group are ongoing daily within the group page--the group calls via conference line are weekly.

If you're ready to discover the difference solid accountability and support can make for your weight loss goals, I highly recommend joining us for this next session!

The regular group session fee is $120 for 8 weeks. The one-on-one package is $200 for 8 weeks of direct-dialed sessions.

January 17th, 2018 Back To Work

January 17th, 2018 Back To Work

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with support.

I felt remarkably better today. Obviously, the Tamiflu is working well!

I'm headed back to work in the morning. My sleep schedule is a little wonky at the moment because I've slept a bunch over the last three days. But I'll adjust!

It's back to work day tomorrow and it's move day! I'm moving to another apartment in the same building; no truck needed! I've recruited some help because it is down a flight, around a sidewalk, and up another flight of stairs. This move was supposed to happen sooner--but the whole sickness thing happened.

I looked back in the archives and discovered I was sick this same week last year.

It'll be good to get back into the work groove tomorrow.

We have spaces available in the next session of the accountability and support groups I cofacilitate with Kathleen Miles and Jordan Burgess. Our next session starts January 29th and 30th.
We would love you to join our team!

January 16th, 2018 One More Day

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with great support.

Stayed home again today. Taking the Tamiflu and sleeping.

I'm out at least one more day. I'm feeling much better tonight, though, and I fully expect to be back at work Thursday morning.

Mostly Tweets only, tonight.

January 15th, 2018 A Different Story

January 15th, 2018 A Different Story

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed connected with great support.

I started not feeling well yesterday, but it wasn't too bad. Then, I woke with chills in the night--I just couldn't get warm. It started a general ickiness, with a fever, so I stayed home from work. I've been sick more in the last year than the previous five years or more combined. My boss suggested I get tested for flu, and honestly, I didn't think it was necessary. But I'm glad I did go. I tested positive for flu, again. I have the Tamiflu. It'll be fine.

I've kept my food plan up fairly well. I think it's important to keep the food plan fairly stable unless it's impossible. If I couldn't keep it down, clearly it would be a different story. Once again I came in three hundred calories under budget--and I'm perfectly okay with this.

Flu seems to be everywhere right now. My oldest daughter also tested positive for flu today. She's 7 months pregnant, so naturally, she's very concerned--and so are we. But she has a great doctor, good medicine (Tamiflu), and she's staying hydrated.

January 14th, 2018 Rhythm

January 14th, 2018 Rhythm

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I'm 4oz short for my daily water goal (I'll take care of that before bed!), and I stayed connected with great support.

I slept in very well today. It didn't start that way. I was awake too early but managed to go back to sleep until late morning. It was great because I needed the rest. The downside is how it tilts my schedule--more specifically, my food rhythm.  There's a rhythm to what I do and when it's off, I'm extra cautious. Bottom line for today: It was fine. I'm 330 calories under budget and I'm just going to be okay with that today!

Keeping it short tonight!
