Hyacinths in Winter
Tuesday, January 28, 2014      23 comments

All winter long, I buy pots of hyacinths at the grocery store. Right now I have deep purple blue flowers in the kitchen. And an extraordinary pot of pink ones on the bedroom window sill -- each of the three bulbs has two flowering stalks,... Read more
Small Kindnesses

I'm sitting at my computer in the study on the third floor. DH just brought me up a red mug full of steaming hot coffee. And a piece of his breakfast orange. This cold dark January morning is feeling better already! ... Read more

The Toronto Star has an article today concerning new research on potential heart issues for women who've had breast cancer radiation and chemotherapy. Apparently it may manifest as shortness of breath and pain in the chest which can be mi... Read more
Fatloser Day 21: Maintaining Urgency
Friday, January 24, 2014      29 comments

Steve Siebold's final day is pretty poignant. He's mourning the unexpected death of a good friend, and vividly aware that today is all we have. Life is fragile. "Tomorrow is a promissory note, yesterday is over, right now is all we have and w... Read more
Fatloser Day 20: Discrimination, Plateaus and Stages
Thursday, January 23, 2014      21 comments

Today Siebold focuses his discussion on preparing for plateaus in the weight loss process and staying conscious of the stage we're in at any given time. We all remember that the first stage us "excitement" (but at Day 20 we're probably past tha... Read more
Fatloser Day 19: Taking Inventory of Core Beliefs
Wednesday, January 22, 2014      27 comments

It's hard to imagine a more practical and useful piece of advice than Siebold offers today. He says, if your beliefs are standing in the way of your success with losing weight (or anything else) then: 1. take an inventory of your core be... Read more
Fatloser Day 18: Cause and Effect
Tuesday, January 21, 2014      22 comments

Simple message today: it's important to distinguish between cause and effect. All of us act on the basis of our core beliefs (the cause of our behaviour) so it's important to be aware of our core beliefs. Most of us would prefer to be ... Read more
Fatloser Day 17: Building Better Habits
Monday, January 20, 2014      25 comments

Siebold is today essentially reinforcing his theme that we need to use our brains to make our lives work. And that we can deliberately engineer the habits required for success at weight loss. He's already talked about monitoring emotions... Read more
Fatloser Day 16: Critical Thinking
Sunday, January 19, 2014      21 comments

"Critical thinking" doesn't sound attractive, particularly, does it? We don't much like critical people, sitting in judgment on us and telling us we're bad bad bad. And that it's our fault if we're fat. We like positive thinking. "Ever... Read more
Fatloser Day 15: Monitoring and Manipulating
Saturday, January 18, 2014      23 comments

Pretty simple message today, not too "in-your-face", and very useful. To practice mental toughness for the purposes of weight loss (or any other area of my life) I need to practice mind control. That means I need to: ... Read more
Fatloser Day 14: Addiction to the Approval of Others
Friday, January 17, 2014      17 comments

Once again, Siebold begins by acknowledging he knows he's probably offended a whole lotta people. Politics, religion and sex are "hot button" topics. It's risky to talk about any of 'em and probably the riskiest topic is . . . sex. (Worth not... Read more
Fatloser Day 13: The Weight Loss Topic Nobody Addresses
Thursday, January 16, 2014      33 comments

OK then. Were you offended at Day One when Siebold said if you're fat it's your fault? Were you offended at Day Four when Siebold said that fat people are bad parents? And were you offended at Day Twelve when Siebold said fat ... Read more
