Our Lady of Weight Loss - Great, Wonderful, Fantastic!


So I was reading through one of my favorite blogs, and ran across an article by Janice Taylor. She is an artist and writer who started "Our Lady of Weight Loss." Here's a little bit of her story from her site:

"Who is Our Lady? Where did she come from?" you ask. Janice wonders as well, "Is Our Lady a higher-power, the higher-self, the 'good' Mother that lives within each of us, or is she just a fig newton of her wild imagination? Does it really matter?"

What matters is that instead of eating crazy amounts of fried foods, heavily buttered bread and chocolate in any form, Janice was able to permanently remove over 50 pounds of excess weight 5 years ago.
"

I love some of her insights in to weight loss, she talks about "Permanently removing" weight, instead of weight loss...which she argues you can always find something that's simply been lost...you must permanently REMOVE it...I agree!!! I also love her idea, to CREATE ART, instead of eating. That's a PERFECT idea for us Etsians! Take a look at her site and her work, and let us all know what you think. I just purchased her book on Amazon, I'll let you all know what it's like!
