Counting calories, eh? Well, how about cutting out all sugar? (That was Heather's suggestion to me since sugar is just empty calories. I couldn't do it. I'm a total failure.)

Try a mantra. I remember it worked for me 100 years ago when I wanted to get down to a size 6. When I was really hungry and reaching for the fridge door, I kept saying over and over again in my mind, "....for the joy of a slender figure..... for the joy of a slender figure ...... for the joy of a slender figure ......" I know, it sounds stupid -- but it worked for me -- back THEN.

How supportive is Shane? He works out regularly -- an hour at the gym is good stuff -- and you guys go together, right? What all can you do at the gym? What equipment do they have there? Can you run, Shell? When I used to run, I had no problem keeping the weight down. Do they have treadmills at your gym? What about Winsor pilates? Do you have the tape? You can get a helluva workout on the floor with pilates! Oh yeah.

Girlfriend, this is a very important event to you. You want to look back on it for a very long time afterward, and you want to do so with fond memories of feeling really great about yourself. If that includes losing weight -- and it apparently does -- then you'll do what it takes to get there. Your post about that horrible stabbing you went through and how you fought off your attacker showed me just what you're made of.

You can do this, oh yeah -- I have no doubt whatsoever!

You GO, Girl!

Bevvy

P.S.: Michael can help you out here as well. Here's what he told me:

Quote:

When I see people in my practice who want to lose weight, the first thing they have to do is cut away the importance of the weight. The more important we make it the more difficult we make it to lose weight. The next thing is to decide how you gained the extra weight -- is it through lack of exercise, overeating, particular foods, out of boredom, loneliness, tiredness, whatever? Then to change our thoughts. If you have listened to "Reflections on Life," remember the equations of life, one of them being, "If you say yes to one thing, you say no to something else." If you say yes to unnecessary food or beverage, you are saying no to yourself, no to feeling fitter and happier, no to being more active and more confident. But when you say no to unnecessary, unneeded food, you say yes to yourself, yes to better health, yes to being more comfortable in both your body and in your clothes, yes to being more active too. But also remember, food is the life force; if you don't eat enough food, you will become ill. So keep this equation in your thoughts; it might help you more than you initially think.




Hope this helps, Sugar. (Oops, sorry; bad word, BAD!)
