Monitoring and Manipulating My Emotions
Monday, January 19, 2015      24 comments

Siebold says it's important to monitor and manipulate emotional responses to the pressures of changing habits. I can train myself to monitor my emotions -- to be aware of them at various times of the day. And this is helpful because I... Read more
Addiction to the Approval of Others
Sunday, January 18, 2015      17 comments

Siebold says, this is the most insidious addiction of all. And it's not an addiction that he suffers from a whole lot. Clearly. He's prepared to address the "hot button" topics: religion, politics (in other contexts . . . ). He's... Read more
Harnessing The Most Powerful Emotional Energy
Saturday, January 17, 2015      17 comments

Oh yeah. We know what that is -- the energy that results in propagation of the species. Sex. And most diets never deal with sex head on. (Does Beck? Does Berkeley?) But Siebold says acknowledging the power of sex is key to grow... Read more
Growing Up Emotionally
Friday, January 16, 2015      24 comments

This is a tough day when Siebold knows he comes across like a jerk. But he lays it on the line: if I'm an adult I've grown up physically. And most people would think I've grown up intellectually too, through school. But I didn't get any... Read more
It's Going to be Glorious!!
Thursday, January 15, 2015      20 comments

What, my life? Glorious? Sure, says Steve Siebold -- if I give up my fear and scarcity mindset. If I replace that belief, deeply and unconsciously inculcated since childhood, with the belief that the world is a place of love and abunda... Read more
Changing My Beliefs
Wednesday, January 14, 2015      24 comments

We believe that we believe what we believe because it's "true". But mostly, says Siebold, we believe what we believe because that's what we were "told" (out loud, or implicitly) was true by the influential adults in our lives when we were t... Read more
Be Prepared
Tuesday, January 13, 2015      68 comments

Oh yeah. I KNOW this, right? I KNOW I've gotta have the appropriate foods readily available so that I don't grab whatev just because I'm hungry. Or tempted . . . I KNOW that I've gotta be prepared to deal with parties and travel and ... Read more
Negotiating The Price of Success
Monday, January 12, 2015      21 comments

Why do I fail to succeed at my goals -- including weight loss/maintenance? I want to "negotiate" the price of success. I want to "beat the system" or "phone it in". And what do I have to do? Whatever it takes. It's a linea... Read more
Attitude, Motivation, Momentum: Keeping My Word to Myself
Sunday, January 11, 2015      17 comments

Yesterday Siebold told me that he'd be "right beside me". And today he tells me, I've ALSO gotta keep my word to myself. Then: he explains HOW. Terrific stuff, short and rather sweet. So: here are the steps: I know (logically) why... Read more
No Excuses and Right Beside You
Saturday, January 10, 2015      28 comments

Sound familiar? NO CHOICE (Beck). Forget Moderation (Berkeley). And Siebold at Day 6 says the same thing. Excuses ("Just this once won't hurt") exhaust the mental energy required to focus on success. Excuses subject us to the torture ... Read more
Forgive Myself for Being Fat: Let It Go!
Friday, January 09, 2015      23 comments

Siebold knows that he annoyed viewers at Day Four -- and a lot of 'em quit. Today he asks me to think about why I am fat. What's the logical reason? And inevitably, he says, it's because of emotions, uncontrolled emotions that caused me... Read more
Who Am I?
Thursday, January 08, 2015      21 comments

Am I a fat person who can't control herself? Is that what my body is telling me and telling my kids and telling my friends and acquaintances and business colleagues? Steve Siebold continues to tell it like it is. At Day Four (a day ... Read more
Grow Up, Suck It Up!
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      23 comments

As ONEKIDSMOM points out in her comment to yesterday's blog, Berkeley and Beck say the say thing. Be tough. No Choice. And . . . so does Siebold. His version: that's the headline up there. A bit more "in your face"? Not so much "c... Read more
Siebold -- SO BOLD!
Tuesday, January 06, 2015      26 comments

www.fatlosers.com Just taking a refresher jaunt with another Sparkie through the free (used to be $500) 21 day video coaching offered by Steve Siebold -- multi-millionaire corporate motivational speaker. Link above -- and ... Read more
Short Order Cooks
Monday, January 05, 2015      23 comments

Interesting wrinkle on the "salt/sugar/fat" theme of manufacturers deliberately making addictive foods. One result, apparently, is that "home cooks" (especially those trying to make reasonably healthy meals) can't compete with deliciousness... Read more
