The Christmas Season is upon us. There are beautiful light displays, lots of laughter, children bouncing in the stores and shopping is the number one game in town.

Al and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It looks like we have time for one more visit before 2008 arrives so let's pull up that comfy chair with our tall glass of refreshing water in hand, and get started. Don't forget to bring your beautiful SMILE.

Making Your Dream a Reality
    By Dotti

DottiLast time Al talked about "Your Christmas Resolution", about getting started now instead of New Years. Today we are going to talk a little about your dreams and how you can make them a reality. I'd like to start out with some motivational words from Rosemary DePaolis which describes our talk today.

Never stop believing in your dreams…

Goals are dreams and wishes that are not easily reached.
You have to work hard to obtain them, never knowing
When or where you will reach your goal.
But keep trying! Do not give up hope.
And most of all… never stop believing in yourself.
For within you there is someone special…
Someone wonderful and successful.
No matter what you achieve, as long as you want it
And it makes you happy, you are a success.

Wow! That surely does say it all, doesn't it? What is your dream for 2008? Better health? Thinner YOU? Better eating habits? Whatever your dream is you will make it a reality in 2008! Mine is to get back to Goal, never giving up! Giving up is not an option to me no matter how many life scenarios get in the way; no matter how many times I get fed up and just want to throw in the towel - I will NOT give up! Neither will you.

Let's plan our strategy to begin making our dream of a healthy, thinner ME in 2008. What are some of the ways we can prepare for our Journey? I've got a few and I'll talk about them but I'd also like for all of you to be thinking of some ideas of your own which will help you start/restart this Journey.

  1. Ask some of your friends or family for some ideas on how you can make your dream a reality. You will probably get many useless ideas or ones that would never work for you but you will most likely get one or two great ideas!
  2. Let's make a game of it. There are many different games you can play which will result in a visual of the progress you have made. Set up a small tin of paper clips (I like the large colored ones). For every pound (or any amount you prefer) lost you add a paper clip to the starting one. You are creating a beautiful, colorful necklace which shows you how much weight you have lost.
  3. For a small visual you can use two pencils, a large piece of styrofoam and a roll of Life Savers. Stick the two pencils into the styrofoam and hang the Life Savers on the left. As you progress through your milestones transfer a Life Saver to the pencil on the right. When all the Life Savers are on the right it's time to celebrate!
  4. Make sure you know your boundaries, which means don't try to plan to do something that you know you won't accomplish. Remember that we are all on the same Journey but we do the Journey in different ways. If you come upon a part of your Journey that you just cannot do, then don't. There is always an alternative. Making this Journey your Journey is what makes us all unique and a Success.
  5. Get enough sleep. Believe it or not, getting enough sleep will help make your Journey so much easier. I've certainly proven that concept to be correct.
  6. Find at least one friend that is highly motivated like you are. Of course not all your friends will be, but I will bet that you can find one that will be. If not, remember there is a ton of support at your meetings and on the Internet; at DWLZ for instance.
  7. One step at a time. Try journaling for one week, drinking water for the next one, walking a couple times a week for the next week, etc. Trying to do too much at once can be overwhelming. Take baby steps.
  8. Visualize the reality of your dream. Look into the mirror and think about the compliments you'll receive on your new look; see yourself at your goal weight and let yourself feel proud of what you've accomplished.
  9. Do you have any past important moments in your life that you treasure in your memory? Or have you had a previous longtime dream come true? If you did, think back to those times and feel those feelings again. Let those feelings into this dream, your Journey. Positive recollections are a great way to get into the right frame of mind for your dreams to become a reality.
  10. Write down all the positive affirmations (I will do this, I can stay on Program, I'm worth it… ) you can think of. Cut into strips (use different colored paper. Find a pretty jar (decorate it too!) and add the motivations to them. Pull one out every time you need that extra push of motivation to stay on your Journey.
  11. Storyboard your Journey? Think of a starting point and an ending point, filling in the interim steps. You can write out the steps but drawing out the steps or using pictures are a great visual of your Journey. Hang it up where you'll see it.
This Journey you are about to embark is not only about conquering your dream but it is also about conquering your doubts. Sir Edmund Hillary was the first climber to scale Mt. Everest. When he succeeded he said,

"It's not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves."

Let's face it. We are going to have obstacles along our way. It's called Life. But… we don't have to let those obstacles stop us. They may slow us down but we must never, ever give up wanting this dream of ours. Obstacles will help us grow to be stronger on our Journey and to help us remember that it is truly a One Day at a Time Journey that is worth being on. You didn't see Sir Edmund quitting, did you? He wanted to scale that mountain and scale that mountain he did!

Do you know you can make your dream a reality? Do you know you can become a healthier, slimmer, new YOU? Do you know you can become the person you want to become? Did I hear someone say, "No, I don't. How can I get that confidence that I can make my dream a reality?"

The number one way to get that confidence is to make a plan to become a bit selfish with yourself. No, I'm not talking about becoming self-centered and all self-absorbed. I'm talking about selfishly taking the time to plan your meals, journal, exercise, relax; you get the picture. I like to sometimes just sit and relax with NO obligations for a bit. That is relaxing to me and a huge stress reliever. How many times did you not take that relaxing bubble bath with the candles burning because you felt you did not have the time? The same with getting some exercise in - walking, going to the gym, etc. Believe me, there are extra minutes in your day to grab for your own.

It took me a long time to realize that when I'm taking care of ME I'm taking care of my loved ones. I'm a much nicer person to be around (ask Al). I'm on Program and in control of what goes into my mouth. I'm smiling more and generally a happier person, inside and out. I'm getting my sleep and waking up refreshed. I KNOW I can do anything - just call me Super Woman! No kidding. Try it, you'll like it!

If you never thought you could succeed on this journey, ponder this:

Abraham Lincoln...
  • Failed in business at age 21.
  • Was defeated in a legislative race at age 22.
  • Failed again in business at age 24.
  • Overcame the death of his sweetheart at age 26.
  • Had a nervous breakdown at age 27.
  • Lost a congressional race at age 34.
  • Lost a congressional race at age 36.
  • Lost a senatorial race at age 45.
  • Failed in an effort to become vice-president at age 47.
  • Lost a senatorial race at age 47.
  • Was elected PRESIDENT of the US at age 52!
Abraham Lincoln never gave up on any of his dreams and neither will you! 2008 is your year to make your dreams a reality. 2008 is your year to get back on track if you've taken a wrong turn.

2008 is YOUR year!

Have an awesome couple of weeks everyone, with a very safe and enjoyable holiday season! Remember to SMILE that beautiful smile of yours all the time. You will cheer up all those you come in contact with, leaving you with a good feeling. It doesn't get any better than that.

Hugs! Dotti

An Update on my Journey

Hi everyone! I've had a busy couple of weeks. It's been a bit difficult to get back on track with my exercise and routine that I was on before Thanksgiving but I will conquer it, don't you worry.

The last couple of weigh-ins resulted in a half pound loss on Dec 12th and a 2 lb gain on Dec 19th. Like I said it's been difficult.

I had one family celebration last Sunday and had a great time. I did plan ahead, and I had healthy foods available, but I just didn't pay attention like I should have, and I ate too much of the not so healthy, high calorie foods also. What is that saying that I love so much?

"If you always do what you always did, then you'll always get what you always got."

Yep, that's the one. I need to stop doing what I always did and start doing differently to start seeing different results.

Al is being a strict Drill Sergeant when it's my bedtime, 10:30 -11 pm and there are days I want to fire him but he is my strength when I'm weak; guess I'll keep him.

A huge WOO! HOO! to all our successes out there. I'd also like to say to all who are feeling under the weather that I hope you are feeling yourself in no time.

Onward and downward,

Until next time, take care and remember to SMILE

Hugs!   Dotti


This poem is dedicated to my sister Debi. She passed away at 38 years old. I know, not very old. I won't get into details but she died of complications due to years of obesity. My sister endured years of torment from folks all around her because of her weight. I truly believe they added fuel to the fire. She turned to food as her comfort. It only takes a smile to put a little sunshine in someone's day. Don't pass up the opportunity to do that. Whether it is a smile, telling someone they look nice or holding your child and telling them you love them. It is easy to give compliments to family and friends. Try randomly picking someone off of the street and just smile. Yours could be the only one they get or have gotten in a long time. -Chiryl Arnott

Winning With Grace

For years I've struggled with my weight,
Believing somehow it was my fate.
Peers and so-called friends have ridiculed me,
Asking how fat I intended to be.
Their jeers and staring hurt me so much,
When all I wanted was a gentle touch.
Some one to love me for who I was,
Lord, I wished it would happen but it never does.
As the years go by, I retreat into my shell,
Deeper and deeper so no one can tell,
The hurt and the pain was buried so deep,
All I wanted to do was eat and to sleep.
I turned to food as comfort to hide my pain
It was not healthy but, was I to blame?
Magazines and commercials with women so slim,
Telling me being overweight is so grim.
One day I decided my life must change,
It meant that my lifestyle needed to be re-arranged.
Did I do it for those who were cruel to me?
No, it is because of the person I want to be.
As I travel this road with it's ups and downs,
Never will I walk with my head to the ground.
That part of my life is over and gone.
Of myself I have grown quite fond.
I've learned that my life and meaning and worth,
To others I give plenty of wide berth.
My goals are set and I am running the race.
With God's help I will win with grace.

Dedicated to my sister Debi who passed away in 2002.

Comic Relief

T'was The Week After Christmas

T'was the week after Christmas, and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.

The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).

I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,

The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt---

I said to myself, as I only can
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"

So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip

Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
"Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.

I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore---
But isn't that what January is for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot
I KNEW I couldn't stick to THAT kind of diet.

I decided right then to a change of lifestyle
So back to Weight Watchers I went with a smile.

And knew that 2000 was the year I would WIN
And NEVER go back on that cycle again.

This time it's to GOAL - watch that cake, watch that beer!

Ways to Burn 100 Calories

Holidays are a time when extra calories seem to make it into our mouths so why not burn them off in fun ways ~ Here are a few ideas of how to burn 100 extra calories…
  • Gardening ~ Plant three of your favorite flowers. While you are raking and digging you will feel the burn.
  • Ballroom Dancing ~ Grab a partner for 30 minutes of ballroom dancing.
  • Sewing/Mending ~ Grab that sewing kit and while watching TV for an hour get all your mending done along with burning some unwanted calories.
  • Iron ~ 20 minutes of ironing will burn off 100 of those extra calories. Carrying the ironing board and putting it away is an added bonus!
  • Wash the Dishes ~ Instead of using the dishwasher try washing them by hand for 40 minutes. You'll have clean dishes and 100 calories will be gone!
  • Play a Board Game ~ Play a friendly game of Monopoly for an hour. You'll have so much fun you won't even think about burning calories.
