Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #13
Life is great, isn't it? Stop and just look around you as you're reading this and breathe in all that you have to be grateful for. You have a computer; you have the Internet; you have the ability to type; you can read; you have an attractive, intelligent, vibrant 50-year old woman who cares about you-that's me! Remember to define yourself as Divine. The One who created you wouldn't have it any other way. He expects you to let people know who you are and shout it out your car window if you have to. I prefer to wear a t-shirt that reveals who I am. I celebrated my 50th birthday on March 11 and got a t-shirt that says, "I'm 50 and I'm a Hottie!!"
You're a Hottie too!! Take a few moments and get up and do the Hottie dance. Shake your booty and let's hear the roaring sounds of, "I am a Hottie! I am a Hottie! I am a Hottie because I have a nice, sexy body! Go ahead and shake it all around! Being a Hottie is wear it's at and you are definitely where it's at.
In order to retain the Hottie title, you must take care of your body. What I'm discovering more and more as I work with clients is the emotional component that keeps people from achieving their weight loss. When you are hold things in, your body stays in an acidic state which creates a harmful environment. The stress can affect your entire body and can literally shut down your adrenal glands. It's as if your body is in a fight or flight mode all the time with all the worry. Your body wants to be in an alkaline, balanced state for its optimum health.
Also when your body is acidic, it creates a haven for Candida Albicans, which is an overproduction of yeast in the entire body. The yeast is a parasite and doesn't need a partner to reproduce. Thus, when you're under stress, the yeast has a field day because it thrives on an unhealthy body. Also Candida thrives on sugar, whether it is processed sugar or carbohydrates like breads, pastas or rice that turn into sugar in the body.
I know about Candida as I had it when I was very ill. In my healing book, it states that people who have Candida experience a lot of frustration and anger. That was me once upon a time. I thank God that I was shown a different way and I can show my body how much I love it by being kind to it. God gave me a wonderful body and I express gratitude to Him everyday by what I put in it, my exercise program, the words I use, giving it time to relax and nurturing it. I am a Hottie and I wear that t-shirt with pride.
Take a moment right now and express gratitude to God for your body. Thank you for my eyes that see, my ears that can hear, my heart that beats, my blood that flows, my mouth to wear bright lipstick, my voice to express who I am. He gave it to all to you so that you would take care of it and be all you can be.
So, Ms. Hottie, releasing those emotions is the key. Keep using those Rapid Eye and Emotional Freedom Techniques to release those negative emotions. Use those affirmations throughout the day to keep the positive energy flowing. Express gratitude when you drink a glass of water, have a hot shower, skip down the road. Forgive others and yourself. Meditate and pray to be closer to God. God only knows peace and wants the same for you.
You are absolutely incredible and deserve such huge pats on the back. Go ahead and reach way back and give yourself a few pats. Your hard work is paying off and I'm proud of you!
