Jan's coal furnace

Jan wrote: I kind of think of my body as a coal burning furnace the good food is the coal that burns the fat the more good food I eat the hotter the fire that burns the fat but if I eat even a little bad food for me it is like poring cold water on my fire and it then takes time to get the fire back up to the temperature again. So until it does even thought eating right again it slows everything down again. The exercise just intensifies the heat. I know this might sound nuts but it helps me to visualize things so I see the fat just melting off as I eat healthy and exercise I see it literally flowing down off me into the sewer LOL Hi Jan, this visualizing of the coal furnace and fat dissolving effects..is EXACTLY what Dr Lawliss describes on his wt loss CD's (for new people, they were recommended by Dr Phil, info on drPhil.com). He talks about the research that confirms the effect on the physical body that the mind has...so great work! Right now I am using the one on Relaxation; I only get about 2 minutes into listening, and I am out like a light! For anyone having trouble falling asleep, forget the sleeping pills, use the CD; it works!

it chopped me off...here is more

Don't know why it chopped me off, I am not trying to hide my name--LOL. I also just noticed that my picture has changed again. Been having trouble; this is my little Butterfly, at about 4 months old. How do you guys post pictures with your messages??? I didn't see anywhere to click to include a pic with a post (other than the one we normally use at the left). The hairless kitty was pathetically adorable. I wanted to put a sweater on it!

Hi Greg

I loved the idea of a video journey. Even if Dr Phil does not use it, I am sure, since this topic is so universal, that SOMEONE would want to use it...ever see that show "30 Days"? The guy who did "Supersize Me". Question: there are alot of us who only have digital cameras. Is there any place in your project for those? I love to go to websites and see the progression from start to goal in the photos. It is inspiring. Just a thought. With all the people here, you could have quite a collection of people "morphing" from larger to smaller. Anyway, good luck with this project...I look forward to seeing more of it. I plan to tell my hubby about it; he shys away from interacting with a bunch of gabby "gals", but I am sure he would check out your website.

Cindy,

Isn't it a great book? I have been trying to pick it up daily and it helps me tremendously. I wonder if Dr Phil has ever been to his church..I want to visit there someday. They just moved into where the Houston Astros used to play and the 1st service there had 16,000 people! But I guess you may already know that:)

Stacie

I watched it this morning live on his internet site.  Very impressive! I was able to watch the whole service without any problems. The place is huge! He said they were having some bugs with traffic......I imagine!

On the tool bar above where you type your message, there are icons for bold or italics, to use bullets, spell check, color of ink, remove format and then the next one is insert/edit imagine.

 

Click on that one and it will bring up a photo editor very similar to the one we had before for pics. This is the boss of my household! As you can see he sits on top of the printer or hides in the computer keyboard drawer and surprises me! 

 

 

Hope that helps. Cindy

Top Weight

I'm at my top weight -- I reached 466lbs this week. I was only 380lbs when Dr. Phil did his big challenge show I was on. WOW! Time has flown by and I've BLOWN UP. I'm at a loss and feel pretty desolate. I never thought I'd ever go UP again. This is the 5th or 6th time I've gained over 100lbs is my life. Whew!
