Change Your Life With a Commitment to Weight Loss

Anyone who has ever had to lose weight can attest to the enormous commitment the endeavor demands. Dropping pounds requires you to substantially alter your life style. Eating habits must be changed, physical activity must be incorporated and a general healthier approach to living must be embraced. For many individuals, the promise of a thinner self is the inspiration to maintain a weight loss regimen. Losing weight can have not only a significant effect on your health, but also on your self-esteem.

Undoubtedly, weight loss has the power to change your professional life, but it also has the ability to change your romantic life.

Feeling good about your physical appearance benefits your self-esteem in many ways. For many people, not being proud of their body prevents them from attaining what they want in life. It is exciting to think of the many areas in your life that can potentially change when you lose the weight.

Changing Your Attitude about Weight Loss
Losing weight can give you the confidence you need to win the position at work that you have always wanted. When you are not positive about your appearance, it shows, and often your career is negatively affected. Knowing that you look and feel good results in a positive attitude and people will respond accordingly. It is not only your attitude that will change, but also the way you interact with people. Weight loss can help you be more assertive, direct and convincing- factors that can get you ahead in your career!

Visualizing a Thinner You
Whether you are attached or single, a new thinner you will have more confidence in the field of love. Perhaps you will surprise your husband by wearing that sexy dress you had always thought of wearing but never had the courage to do so. Or, maybe you will finally ask that gorgeous librarian out on a romantic date. Losing weight not only sheds extra pounds from your body, but it also does away with feelings of fear and intimidation. Once you conquer weight loss, you will feel as if anything is possible, and it is!

When you start to feel as if you will never lose the weight and dieting is just too hard, think of the new thinner you that is just around the corner. Imagine the added energy you will have, the increased confidence and the overall feeling of well being. Weight loss is hard work, but the end result is well worth it!

A New Option for Weight Loss Surgery

 

These days, Jennifer Secrist has little interest in idle activities. The 23-year-old loves to rock climb, hike, ride her mountain bike, and do almost anything that gets her outside and moving.

"I can't stand to sit around," she tells WebMD. "I have so much energy now it's amazing." Weight Loss Surgery
---------------------------------------------------
Her secret: weight loss surgery that leaves her with a smaller stomach while leaving her with smaller scars than the traditional surgery. What makes Secrist's story truly amazing is that in less than two years she has lost 107 pounds, thanks to adjustable gastric banding, a surgical procedure that is commonly performed in Europe, but has only been recently approved for use the U.S.

The surgery can be performed laparoscopically, which means small tools are guided by a small camera through small incisions in the abdomen. The traditional weight loss procedure in the U.S., gastric bypass, involves a large incision to surgically alter the stomach and make it smaller. The Midland, Mich. woman traveled to Sweden to get the surgery, and her mom and dad later made the trip for the same reason.

Adjustable Gastric Banding
-----------------------------------------
Adjustable gastric banding is far less popular here than gastric bypass surgery. Banding has been done in the U.S., yet previously required open surgery, with all its potential complications.

But two new studies find the laparoscopic approach for banding to be a safe and effective weight loss option for people who are 100 pounds or more overweight. The studies, reported in the latest issue of the journal Annals of Surgery, found that patients who underwent gastric banding surgery lost roughly 50% of their excess body weight within two years.

The procedure involves the implantation of a hollow silicone band placed around the top of the stomach, which is adjusted to determine how much food the stomach can hold. The adjustment is made by inflating or deflating the band using salt water piped in trough a tube attached to a port placed under the skin near the breastbone. Several types of bands are available in Europe, but the FDA has approved only one - the Lap-Band system made by the California firm BioEnterics System.

One of the newly published studies evaluated the Lap-Band device in 500 morbidly obese French patients. Researcher Franck Zinzindohoue, MD, and colleagues reported a 53% excess weight loss at two years, with 10% of patients having to have second operations due to complications. No deaths were reported among the patients. The outcomes were much better than those reported in a recent study finding that more than half of patients abandoned the band in favor of gastric bypass surgery.

The authors attribute their good outcome to a procedure they developed to reduce the incidence of band slippage, one of the most common complications of gastric banding.

Some Patients Are Unhappy Because They Did Not Loose As Much Weight As They Wanted
-------------------------------------
Still, in an accompanying editorial, weight loss surgeon John M. Kellum, MD, says surgeons in America may want to think twice before recommending gastric band surgery over gastric bypass. He no longer performs gastric banding, and says most of his patients who had the banding procedure were unhappy with it because they did not lose as much weight as they had hoped to.

In the second new study, authors claimed a lower rate of band erosion and slippage. But the procedure is not recommended for all patients, especially the heaviest, which Kellum says could restrict its usefulness among American patients.

"American patients tend to be heavier than those in Europe, and the heavier the patient the higher the likelihood that complications will occur," he says.

Jennifer Secrist, who now weighs 140 pounds and is a size 6, says she knows of a few gastric band patients, or "bandsters," who have had trouble losing weight with the procedure. But she would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone whose health is jeopardized by morbid obesity. She publishes a web journal of her process to inspire others.

"I want people to know there are alternatives to being heavy," she says. "This has done so much for me. I can't begin to describe it."

The Most Important Tip for Permanent Weight Loss

 

The Most Important Tip for Permanent Weight Loss www.ThinChoices.com If you want to become thin, think as your thin friends do. The Hunger-Satisfaction Scale (shown below) can help you learn how to do this. Every time that sit down to eat a meal or a snack, ask yourself where you fit on the HSS scale. In the 'thin world', you would remain between a four and a six most of the time. This is the secret to how thin people always appear to be so in control of their appetites.

 

"Some of my patients actually gained weight, which never happens with gastric bypass," he tells WebMD. "We were also troubled by the fairly high number of patients who had complications with the band." Kellum says a newer type of band from Sweden may be safer for patients than the Lap-Band, but it has not been studied in the U.S.

 

Hunger-Satisfaction Scale (HSS):

1: Starving, can't concentrate, dizzy
2: Extremely hungry, irritable
3: Very hungry
4: Hungry, ready to eat
5: Just noticing the first signs of hunger
6: Comfortable, satisfied
7: Feel you have eaten just a little bit too much
8: Uncomfortably full
9: Very uncomfortable, tired
10: Stuffed to the point of feeling sick ("Thanksgiving-full!")

The Importance of Snacks to Weight Loss

The Importance of Snacks to Weight Loss www.ThinChoices.com Carrying snacks at all times has helped me remain in control of my appetite. I always have a box of Triscuits or Quaker Oat Squares in my car. I regularly carry apples, bananas, nuts and cans of V8 juice in my brief case. I find that if I don't eat a snack when I first begin to feel hungry, I will get that out-of-control urge to binge within an hour or so.

After losing 40 pounds and keeping it off for 12 years, I realize that permanent weight loss is less about willpower and more about planning ahead. I pride myself on always being in control of my appetite, but I know that this wouldn't be possible without having access to my snacks.

Quaker has developed a new line of snacks that I have found to be very beneficial for my weight loss clients. These products are baked instead of fried, making them much healthier. They satisfy the urge for something salty that crunches without the excess fat and calories that are found in potato chips.

These new products include:

•Quaker Quakes Rice Snacks. They come in several flavors, but Cheddar Cheese seems to be the preferred flavor of my clients. One serving is 9 mini cakes with only 70 calories and 2.5 grams of fat.

 

•Quaker Potato Sticks. They are shaped like crinkle-cut French fries and come in Sour Cream and Onion or Chili Cheese Flavor. The Chili Cheese Flavor has quite a kick. One serving is 31 sticks and contains 110 calories and 4 grams of fat.

 

•Quaker Corn Rings. These rings can be compared in flavor to Cheetos. The flavors are Cheddar Cheese, Nacho Cheese and BBQ. One serving is 24 rings with 110 calories and 3 grams of fat. I need to make healthy choices everyday to keep my weight where I like it. The 40 pounds that I lost 12 years ago is never far from my mind. Eating is one of my top five most enjoyable experiences in the world, with snacking being a large part of the calories that I consume daily.

The Quakes snacks are loaded with flavor and keep my fat intake under control, even if I do choose to eat more than just one serving. My favorite snack is the Sour Cream and Onion potato sticks. I will count out a serving size (31 sticks), put them into a bowl and put the bag away. I have found that this will prevent me from eating the entire bag.

Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #4

 

How's the practicing going?

Are you spending time each day to practice RET, EFT and affirmations?

When you make yourself a priority, then everything else falls into place. When we lose our connection to God, to ourselves, then we get off track. The answer is very simple! Spend time with yourself each day and focus on you.

Do you make excuses why you can't spend time with yourself? Do you come up with all sorts of reasons why you couldn't do it?

Take some time right now and write down the excuses you generally use when you don't focus on you?

Example: I couldn't exercise because I had to do the laundry. Just name everything you use as an excuse. If you have weight issues, I guarantee the list will be long. God created you as the most awesome person in the Universe and spending time with yourself would please Him. He wants you to feel that joy and love of yourself. One way to spend time with yourself is being thankful.

Remember also that every person is unique, and all women will respond to an exercise and fitness plan differently. You may put two women on the same program that have the same amount of weight to lose, yet there results will ultimately be different depending on a number of personal and biological factors.


I thought it would be appropriate to take some time to be grateful. Expressing gratitude is important to adopt as a daily practice. When you're thankful for all you've received, it opens your heart up to attract great things. You look at everything in such a different way and realize all that you have is given to you by God. How powerful is this?

A great daily practice is seeing the Divinity in all things and this is what I would like you to do right now. Take a look around you in the room you're in and notice everything. Now, we're going to be thankful for all that you see. I am grateful for the walls I am grateful for the paint I am grateful for the computer I am grateful for the windows I am grateful for the doors I am grateful for the lights You get the picture. See how many things you can say or write down that you're grateful for in just that room alone. You'll feel a sense of calm and won't be stressed. You can expand on this to include your body. Remember to act as if it is already happening.

I am grateful for my thin body I am grateful that food nourishes me I am grateful I no longer have cravings
I would like to express my gratitude to you and how much I appreciate you being a part of my life. I know your weight has been (I'm using past tense here) an issue, but remember I will be the light that helps you know you have everything within you now to overcome this. I'm destined to help you uncover those layers you're using as protection. The big lesson today is focus on you. There is no bigger priority than you. You deserve it!

Weight Loss After Pregnancy - The Final Word

One point can't be emphasized enough. Weight loss takes time after pregnancy. A sensible goal would be to lose 1-2 pounds per week, particularly if you are looking for the weight you gained to stay off.

Eating a well balanced diet and partaking in regular exercise are the critical success factors for weight loss after pregnancy. Fad diets will not work, and may actually work against you in the long run.

Exercise is a vital component of weight loss after pregnancy. Many people simply are not able to lose the weight they gained unless they exercise, particularly if there metabolism has slowed at all in the months post partum.

If you are getting exercise on a regular basis and eating well, but still not losing weight a year or more after you give birth to your baby, seek out the advice of your health care provider. There are a number of conditions that may arise after delivery that can contribute to weight gain, none the least of which are thyroid abnormalities which are sometimes very common after pregnancy.

The point here is that you should not compare yourself to others! Remember that as long as you are eating well and exercises, you are creating a lifestyle of healthy living that will ultimately benefit you individually as the unique person that you are.

And finally, remember to stay positive. Society puts far too much pressure on women to lose the weight they gained during pregnancy. There is no rush, you will lose the weight and feel great in the process. In the meantime be sure to be good to yourself, reward yourself for your successes no matter how small, and remember to smile from time to time!
