Still Getting Real

Sunday, December 28, 2014

We've all wanted, needed to lose weight for a very long time and we must admit we've never before had a better shot at it than now.
Our journey to better ourselves, to make ourselves healthier has taken us down many a misguided, misdirected passage way with this program and that program promising that magic bullet to immediate results to that finish line we've all desperately desired.

My name is Gayle AKA NOMORESTALLING and for most of you who already know my journey and for those who don't. I have had a really cockamamie relationship with food; I've tried and failed at so many of the diets on the market. Consequently, I've lost and gained hundreds of pounds. I've kept four different sizes of clothing in my closet, and felt tremendous shame and sadness about my relationship with food and inability to keep my weight in line.
Now, finally after following the wisdom of both Dr Phil's 7 Keys : The Ultimate Weightloss Solution and Dr. Joel Furhman's 3 Steps to Incredible Health & Weightloss ;changing and accepting these thought processes because it is a unity of mind body and spirit that brings success, I've not only lost the first 100 pounds without worry or effort I continue to lose and maintain knowing that I'll never gain the weight back. Why? Because I won't. I don't think about food anymore and if I don't think about it, I can't desire it and if I don't desire it, I won't eat too much of it, and I won't gain weight. 

I really want to commend you for embarking on this journey with me. It is a courageous choice to change habits that have caused us to suffer physically, mentally & emotionally. I call it the hero's journey. As we venture forth, we will uplift ourselves and everyone around us. It is a truly courageous and generous act to embrace your own growth and evolution.
Changing mind body and spirit is a spiritual journey that will lead us in the direction of true happiness and deeper into the cave of your own heart. 

Without further ado, let's get started. 

Here is the wonderful news I want to share with you! Yes, it is possible to be free from obsession with food and body weight! It is possible to live without worrying about what you will eat next, whether it will make you fat, or whether you'll have the willpower to eat in a way that keeps you from busting out of your jeans. 

The most important key to this is seeing the whole truth about food and what's been going on in your relationship with it. No matter how long you've been struggling with food, you don't have to take your eating, weight, and body image issues to your grave. You can free yourself of them for good.
We are worth it! We can do this!

This is where I've come from and the journey that continues

The magnificence of you!

Sunday, December 14, 2014

Our lives are a learning process - we only become wiser from learning. It's unfortunate but sometimes it seems in learning a life's lesson we have to attract making a painful mistake to learn something important. IF we learn from it the first time after the mistake, we have far greater wisdom. Wisdom cannot be bought - it can only be acquired through living life. With wisdom comes strength, courage, knowing, and an ever-increasing peace. However, some are destined to repeat a lesson sometimes more than once before they realize the lesson they are to learn is guiding them to their actual life's purpose.

When we find that purpose, it is like our hearts have been set alight with passion. We know it absolutely, without any doubt.

Everyone is entitled to seek out their own path leading from the darkness into the light.


Watching a loved one or a peer traverse a path littered with stumbling blocks can be immensely painful. We instinctively want to guide them toward a safer track and share with them the wisdom we have acquired through experience. Yet all human beings have the right to carve their own paths without being unduly influenced by outside interference. To deny them that right is to deny them enlightenment, as true insight cannot be conveyed in lectures. Rather, each individual must earn independence and illumination by making decisions and reflecting upon the consequences of each choice. In allowing others to walk their paths freely, you honor their right to express their humanity in whatever way they see fit. Though you may not agree with or identify with their choices, understand that each person must learn in their own way and at their own pace.

The events and circumstances that shape our lives are unique because each of us is unique. What touches one person deeply may do nothing more than irritate or confound another. Therefore, each of us is drawn to different paths—the paths that will have the most profound effects on our personal evolution. If you feel compelled to intervene when watching another human being make their way slowly and painfully down a difficult path, try to empathize with their need to grow autonomous and make their own way in the world. Should this person ask for your aid, give it freely. You can even tell them about your path or offer advice in a conscious loving way. Otherwise, give them the space they need to make their own mistakes, to enjoy the fruits of their labors, to revel in their triumphs, and to discover their own truths.

The temptation to direct the paths of others is a creature of many origins. Overactive egos can convince us that ours is the one true path or awaken a craving for control within us. But each person is entitled to seek out their path leading from the darkness into the light. When we celebrate those paths and encourage the people navigating them, we not only enjoy the privilege of watching others grow—we also reinforce our dedication to diversity, independence, and individuality.

When we look at ourselves and feel dissatisfaction about any part of you, we will continue to attract feelings of dissatisfaction, because the law mirrors back exactly what we are holding inside.
If we can access that consciousness and turn it around a whole new world opens up and we are and can be in awe and in wonder at the magnificence of you!

What if you, truly being you, is harmony in motion?

Saturday, December 13, 2014

Are you aware of the intense disharmony most of this world functions from? I would say that would be a big, big … Yes!

By the way, the plants, the animals and our very planet function from harmony. It's just us stupid two-leggeds that don't.

And have you been trying to create harmony in a world where most people seem to value and choose disharmony?

Hint: If you're the one who tries to make everyone in your family (workplace, world ...) happy, this applies to you. And in order to do that, you will often try to lock all their patterns of disharmony into your body, thinking that will take them away.

It actually doesn’t work … (annoying, right?).

What if there could be an easier way to change the patterns of disharmony you are so keenly aware of?

What if you were willing to start functioning from patterns of harmony?

That is what this video is about (that and a great tool for changing the disharmony).

Would you be willing to try this? Just today, as a start?

What if you, truly being you, is harmony in motion?

    Interesting. On right side of YouTube screen I see many more links to postings by him so I bookmarked this to look and listen a little more. Thank you. When asked what I want for Christmas my answer has been 'peace of mind' which is now revised to 'harmony with nature.'

Growing older gracefully

Saturday, December 13, 2014

As we cultivate our life, our beauty becomes as much about what we are creating and doing as it is about our appearance.


We all tend to associate youth with beauty, right? The truth is that beauty transcends every age. Just as a deciduous tree is stunning in all its stages—from its full leafy green in the summer to its naked skeleton during winter and everything in between—human beings are beautiful throughout all stages of their life.

During the early years our lives tend to be about learning and experiencing as much as we possibly can. We move through the world like sponges, absorbing the ideas of other people and the world. Like a tree in spring, we are waking up to the world. In this youthful phase of life, our physical strength, youth, and beauty help open doors and attract attention. Gradually, we begin to use the information we have gathered to form ideas and opinions of our own. As we cultivate our philosophy about life, our beauty becomes as much about what we are saying, doing, and creating as it is about our appearance. Like a tree in summer, we become full, expressive, beautiful, and productive.

When the time comes for us to let go of the creations of our middle lives, we are like a tree in autumn dropping leaves, as we release our past attachments and preparing for a new phase of growth. The children move on, and careers shift or end. The lines on our faces, the stretch marks, and the grey hairs are beautiful testaments to the fullness of our experience. In the winter of our lives, we become stripped down to our essence like a tree. We may become more radiant than ever at this stage, because our inner light shines brighter through our eyes as time passes. Beauty at this age comes from the very core of our being—our essence. This essence is a reminder that there is nothing to fear in growing older and that there is a kind of beauty that comes only after one has spent many years on earth.

I'm now 53 and my life stage is as beautiful as it was when I was a young'n I've love my life, as I love it now. Growing older is just another stage in our lives. How we decide to grow older is all about mind, body and spirit. We're as young as we feel.

    I love how my life & where my choices have taken me. I have some great people in my life. I journal a fair amount which does help me understand myself & the universe much better. I have revealed great truths during these quiet times. I love being a daughter, sister,mother, & grandmother. My body is aging but it has taken me down a great path. I'm blessed & have been so thankful that God has put me right here, right now so many times. emoticon

Here's to the first 6 weeks!

Saturday, December 13, 2014

And my huge bowl of salad and vegetable stew are ready for the day so that any time I find I'm hungry I just make a withdrawal. LOL Sounds like a bank account LOL

It's already working!
As of this morning I'm already down 2 lbs and have only started 24 hrs ago! He said done right; without deprivation, the fat would literally melt off my body.

The vegetable stew is really easy and very delicious! You put the ingredients into a pot and let it simmer until all vegetables are soft enough to put a fork through them. Let it cool and then take a blender full blend it and ad it back into the pot. VOILA the blended veggies thicken it to a stew like consistency! And I've made good and sure that with the exception of lettuce and nuts I have all my G-BOMBS in it!
