From Heart Surgery to Karaoke!

The beginning of 2011 ... and it's happy ending!
I usually post stories on Tuesdays, but this one won't wait! Carrying excess fat isn't good for our health and can lead to years of frustration and misery.  And, if the toxic load doesn't kill us quickly, it can lead to rather unpleasant, very intimate encounters with the medical professionals and mega bills!  

This is my friend Peggy's Husband, Chuck. She shared that 2011 ended much better than she could have ever have hoped for ... She had the joy of watching Chuck dance and sing karaoke!! The "before" picture is very hard for her to look at, but having the very happy ending really makes the point: being overweight and eating poorly does not just effect the outside. It's what is happening to the inside that really matters!! Peggy almost lost him, but now he's trim and healthy. INSIDE AND OUT! 

Please let this be the moment that you decide to work on your health. It's a brand new day and just ripe for a new start. Healthy feels SO good! Thanks Peggy for allowing me to share Chuck's story!

Don't wait any longer, give me a call ... let's put a plan into action now!

Charity got kicked off the Roller Coaster!

This just in from one of TSFL's coaches:

Please welcome Charity! She lost 110 lbs in 10 months. She started the program after flying to southern California to go roller coaster hopping with her daughter. She first had to get a seat belt extension on her flight, had a panic attack in the airplane bathroom and was kicked off the roller coaster at Six Flags because they couldn’t lock the safety bar. "Even with four attendants jumping on the safety bar, nobody could close it ... Everyone was watching me. So humiliating. Ruined the whole trip."


Charity has a very adventurous spirit but didn’t have the body to accommodate. Now she enjoys being an active able mother and wife. She has participated in the Wild Canyon Games, loves to go hiking and pushing herself to the next goal. She is now down 130 pounds and her future is full of delightful roller coasters. CONGRATULATIONS!

Taking the weight off isn't as difficult as you may think. We understand that it's not about losing weight, it's all about gaining knowledge, skills, and health!!! Don't hesitate any longer. 
We can help you! Call me today, 503-313-4820.

Monday is my Favorite Day!

Angela, down 210 pounds!

Happy Monday!  
Call, text or e-mail.
I'm enjoying the check-ins - several clients talked about how to stay on Program, make it work for them, and keep the momentum ... 

Favorite Story this week:

Favorite TSFL YouTube: 
Free to Be full of Hope ... this is a lovely!  The best part is that I know these folks ... Kipp's "shrinking over time" pictures really inspired us when Greg got started 3 1/2 years ago.  

Favorite Quotes:
I am feeling soooooo good. Not one little cheat since we met up on Sunday. I am down 7 lbs, determined to stay the course!

I am reading up on all my literature, and sticking to the program.
I feel better than I have felt in a long, long time. My inflammation is way down, I can feel it! I have been sleeping sooooo good through the night. No night sweats, and “two hour middle of the night thought sessions” Yay!

My leg is better.  I don't have as much pain anywhere as I did just 3 short weeks ago.  Wow!  

I used to swell so badly that I could hardly move and had to spend most of my time laying down and even then had to worry about my lower legs getting infections from the damage to my skin by being stretched so much.  I feel swollen and uncomfortable but not unbearably so and I am not confined to bed by it.  My legs are handling it fine with no signs of infection.  That is a major improvement in my world.  :) 

One little piece of advice, just do the Program for today ...  Don't worry about tomorrow or 50 pounds from now. If you are female, you are going to be losing 2-5 pounds.  Guys lose it the fastest and you can put it on your calendar! 

The key is to stay in "Fat-Burning" otherwise people feel hungry, crabby, and tired - the feelings that make typical "Starve and Sweat" programs so miserable and unsustainable.  This means keeping the carb intake under 85 per day.  Carbs, including bread, pasta, crackers, and sweets, should be thought of as being highly addictive, just like cocaine!  Don't let them anywhere near you!!!!  Fruit is also avoided during the weight loss phase because of the sugar/carbohydrate level even though they are very healthy and will become an important part of your maintenance plan.
Here are some earlier blogs that shed light on the subject of fat burning:

I have a couple of questions ... 
Why is it important to you to lose the excess weight?
What will change for you as the weight comes off?
Who is on your personal "Support Team?"
Who might sabotage you and not really want you to change or lose weight?

Favorite Recipe of the week:

Have a Great week, I look forward to getting you started as a coach ... remember to check in regularly!  Polly.

Left over veggies? Make "Goulash Stir-Fry"


This recipe is from a delightful TSFL coach, Molly, who has taken off 150 pounds and gained years of health!  Her photo is at the end of the recipe.  Enjoy!

Goulash Stir Fry

It has been a while since I posted a new recipe … busy, fun, exciting summer … but it left little time for blogging! And this one was borne out of a need for a last-minute meal based on what was in the fridge. I had stir fry on the menu, but all we had thawed was ground elk meat. In the past, these creations were referred to as Refrigerator Goulash at our house. I opted to combine that concept into a stir fry this time around. You can decide which it actually is … either way, it was super yummy and well-received!
The zucchini, green beans and some of the tomatoes were from our own garden. And the elk was from my hubby’s hunting trip last fall. So this was a VERY economical meal for us!
From beginning to end … yum!!!
Ingredients:
1-1/2 lbs lean ground elk meat
1 cup chopped white mushrooms
1 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers, assorted colors
1 cup chopped zucchini
1 cup chopped green beans
1 cup shiritaki rice
6 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp lime juice
1/2 tsp Mrs Dash garlic & herb seasoning
Directions:
1. Cook ground elk until cooked all the way through. Remove from pan and set aside.
2. Add chopped peppers, zucchini and green beans. Saute until veggies start to soften, approximately 5 minutes. Add broccoli and continue to saute, approximately 2 more minutes. Add mushrooms and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms start to “shrink”, approximately 3-4 minutes. Add tomatoes, and continue to saute for another minute or two.
3. Mix soy sauce, lime juice and garlic seasoning in a separate dish. Add to veggies, stir well, and let simmer for 3-4 minutes.
4. Add (blanched) shiritaki noodles to veggie mixture (if there is not enough liquid to cover everything, add a little water). Cook for about a minute.
5. Add meat back into veggie mixture and cook until heated through.
Serve and enjoy!
Stick to the Plan - you can do it too!
Nutritional Breakdown:
Makes 3 lean & green servings. Each serving consists of:
1 leaner portion (I’d say leanest, but there is some fat added to our ground elk)
3 veggie portions
3 condiments

Laura's Story ...

Laura
Congratulations Laura!


"Several of you have seen my before and after picture now. However, very few know my story. And with some help, I realized I was being selfish in not sharing. So, here goes. . . Stage 4 gastrointesti
cal cancer had me going through so many treatments and feeling pretty miserable. After 9 years of the back and forth battle, I just couldn't take the treatments anymore. My doctors said to lose a minimum of 20 lbs to get started. Here I am, 40 lbs lighter feeling better than ever and last week, I was told that I am a stage 0! Trust me stage 0 is way more exciting than being a size 0 in jeans!"

Monday is one of my Favorite Days!


Monday is one of my favorite days because it's the day that we:
  • Hear from many of you about your health journey - I get to hear the "good, bad & and the ugly!" 
  • Celebrate pounds and inches down,  lessons learned, decisions made,  resolve to strengthen the vision and restart as needed.
  • Get stories, photos, and referrals for friends who want to get started too. Thank you for the referrals - reaching out to help friends and family members builds your support network.  When you begin helping and coaching others on the path to gaining health, it reinforces your inner resolve and increases your own chances of success.
Tips for the day:
Speaking of success, remember that we (and that includes you!) are not "Weight Loss" coaches ... we are Health Coaches!  We promote, mental, financial, and emotional health as we gain understanding of what it takes and means to gain physical health.  I believe that anyone can lose weight ... what we are after is sustainable health and happiness for a life time.

Be sure to take a few minutes thinking about you goals each week.  Picture what it will feel like to be your preferred, slim and strong self.  Make a list of the things that have changed and will continue to change ... what you will do, feel and look like as you burn though the storage tank of fat inside.  When you identify obstacles, see yourself conquering them boldly and with ease as you keep your eye on the prize!!!  Share these notes and pictures with me as they come up.

Also, when adjusting your BeSlim order, don't ever enter your credit card number!  If the system asks you for your credit card info, it indicates that you are making a seperate order and may be getting an additional shipment (without the 5% discount or free shipping!)  Call me and I'll help prevent this from happening.

Favorite quotes of the week: 
One client wrote:
I have found that the cafeteria is no longer a challenge but every Friday at work throughout the summer we have a BBQ so that is a whole new challenge. It may seem a little strange but I like the challenges because I feel it makes me really relay on the things I know to make the best choices for myself!

Another client wrote: 
This is just so simple!  I have more time for all the other things in my life now ... I am not controlled by cravings anymore! 
I used to be a closet eater - I'd come to the cemetary and eat a Ben and Jerry's ice cream ...
I would be filled with self hate and remorse from the binging ... I was in the clutches of sugar and cravings!!
It's so nice to be free and liberated ... To wake up with a clear mind, clear head ... this is priceless.
I now have "space" between me and the food, I have options and support.   
It's a miracle ... I keep thinking about where the message came from to do this.
Today, I've been up since 5am, been to (the store), gotten all my chores done, and am going for walk in the woods with my camera.
When I get home, I'm going through all my clothes ... Keeping my largest pair of pants ... everything else has got to go.

Have a great week! 
Share your stories, send photos, paint your vision ... this is your life and you can make decisions to make it happy, healthy and fruitful!

What do Midwives and Health Coaches have in Common???

With tape to hold up my glasses!
I just read a lovely blog that really resonated with me about taking care, nurturing, and seeking alignment.  It reminds me of my many years of caring for moms, catching babies, and witnessing the birth of families.

The concepts presented describe what Midwives and Health Coaches have in common and do every day.  Just as there are not enough midwives, there's a real need for more Health Coaches too ... Both careers are fun but I'm happy to say that being a Health Coach doesn't require the time and expense of additional years of training or necessitate staying up all night!

I'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to contact me for more information on becoming a Health Coach.  Helping someone gain health and lose weight with a program that actually works, is affordable (cost neutral), and has sustainability, is rewarding beyond my wildest dreams!!!  I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Enjoy the article! Polly.

"Nurture, Nurture, NurtureWhat would our lives look like if we consciously brought the value of taking care, of nurturing to the fore. How would aligning ourselves with that single focus impact our lives and the lives of others? More  Posted by Ode Editor, August 15, 2012, 4:57 pmSEE MORE POSTS

Fast Food: Not Our Friend




Fast Food: Not Our Friend!
Despite what the fast food industry wants you to believe, the majority of the food served in fast food restaurants are high in the things that are not good for our bodies and low in quality nutrition.  Decide to be an informed consumer, make good food choices and you can bring health into your life.
The following article is just further evidence on what is happening, not just in the United States, but all around the world.   To use an election year slogan, “vote with your dollars.”  We at Health Coach Resource, encourage you to take a stand and do what is right for you and your family.



Are Global Market Forces Linked to Obesity Epidemic?
By Robert Preidt
Thursday, December 29, 2011ages

THURSDAY, Dec. 29 (HealthDay News) -- Nations with open trade policies have greater densities of fast food restaurants and higher rates of obesity than those with more trade controls, a new study has found.
"It's not by chance that countries with the highest obesity rates and fast food restaurants are those in the forefront of market liberalization, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, versus countries like Japan and Norway, with more regulated and restrictive trade policies," lead researcher Roberto De Vogli, an associate professor in the University of Michigan School of Public Health, said in a university news release.
For example, the analysis of data from 26 wealthy nations showed that the United States has 7.5 fast food restaurants per 100,000 people, and the density in Canada is 7.4 per 100,000. Obesity rates in the United States are 31 percent for men and 33 percent for women, and obesity rates in Canada are about 23 percent for men and women.
In comparison, Japan has 0.13 fast food restaurants per 100,000 people and Norway has 0.19 per 100,000 people. Obesity rates in Japan are 2.9 percent for men and 3.3 percent for women. Obesity rates in Norway are 6.4 percent for men and 5.9 percent for women, according to the study published in the December issue of the journal Critical Public Health.
The effect that market forces have on obesity is largely overlooked, according to De Vogli.
"In my opinion, the public debate is too much focused on individual genetics and other individual factors, and overlooks the global forces in society that are shaping behaviors worldwide. If you look at trends over time for obesity, it's shocking," he said in the news release.
"Since the 1980s, since the advent of trade liberalization policies that have indirectly . . . promoted transnational food companies . . . we see rates that have tripled or quadrupled. There is no biological, genetic, psychological or community level factor that can explain this. Only a global type of change can explain this," De Vogli stated.

Learning to Ride a Bike

What it means to "Iterate."

Robin Sharma's Tip #57 from "60 Tips For a Stunningly Great Life" is "Innovate and Iterate."  Having never used the word iterate without an "re" attached to the front of it, I had to look up the word.  It comes from the Latin word meaning "again."  From Wikipedia comes this definition:

"Iteration means the act of repeating a process, usually with the aim of approaching a desired goal or target or result. Each repetition of the process is also called an "iteration," and the results of one iteration are used as the starting point for the next iteration."

When combined, innovation and iteration become the learning processes by which we grow.  This is how we learned to ride a bike as a child.  We first experienced a burning desire to ride, tried it, failed, and tried again until we got it!  Progress requires innovation - 
incorporating what we have learned and repeating it until we get it right. When we do not incorporate innovation and iteration, we experience irritation and just stop trying.

Do not become frustrated by failure, we all fail.  Pick yourself up, brush yourself off, apply what you have learned and keep on keeping on.  Have a "stunningly great life."

Tempeh Stuffed Mushrooms


Just thought I would share a recipe for the stuffed mushrooms we cooked up for dinner tonight.  Start by cleaning the mushrooms and popping out the stems.  Lightly oil the caps, place them on a baking sheet upside down, preheat the oven to 400 and set the caps aside while you prepare the filling.

In a lightly oiled pan, on medium heat, saute the onions, garlic, tempeh, mushrooms stems and greens.  When the mixture has just about finished cooking add the Tamari, blend in and turn off heat.  If you choose to use cheese, blend in now.  spoon filling into caps, rounded just slightly.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until mushrooms have wilted and are hot.  Serve with a salad or your favorite green vegetable.  Polly gives this 5 stars.

Ingredients: 
12- large mushrooms, finely chop stems.
1- medium-small onion, finely chopped.
2-4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped.
1-8 oz package organic 5 grain Tempeh, cubed and finely chopped, or substitute lean ground meat.
1-Tbs Tamari or soy sauce.  I use Tamari because all my recipes are gluten free.
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese or for vegan use soy cheese.
1-cup finely chopped greens.  I used kale.  Parsley or any other greens you would stir fry works well.

Create, cook and enjoy.  Tell us about any variations you use or share with us your favorite stuffed mushroom dish.  The Tempeh is a little high in carbohydrates if you are following a Medifast 5 and one plan.  You can substitute ground meat, low fat cottage cheese or tofu for few carbs.  The Five Grain Tempeh we used has 15g carbohydrates and 13 g protein per serving. Garnish.
Serves 2-3 as a main dish.

OMSI Anyone?

Polly doing the "Fat and Sugar Show"
Five of us from Health Coach Resource had the privilege of being part of OMSI's first annual "Dirt to Dinner" Fair this past weekend.  OMSI is the Oregon Museum of Science and IndustryWe learned about composting, growing a vertical garden using recycled materials, keeping bees, butchering a chicken, catching rain water and so much more!  Thank you to all the food vendors and staff - what a great event!!  Health Coach Resource looks forward to being part of it again next year!!!  

Greg explaining the wonders of kale!

Bruised Kale, Tabbouleh Salad



We recently discovered how wonderful kale is raw.  Previously we assumed that this nutritious green was too tough to eat raw.  We have now found that, "massaging or bruising," kale makes a wonderful salad green.  We use kale with, or in place of, parsley in Tabbouleh Salad.  I prepare the kale by cutting out the stem, bruising it with a rolling pin on the cutting board and chopping it to my desired size with my chefs knife.  There are other methods and recipes you can Google.


This tasty salad has 6-7 raw vegetables.  Add the low calorie, low carbohydrate dressing below and it will easily feed six people.  Makes a very tasty and colorful potluck dish.


Recipe for "Bruised Kale Tabbouleh."

Vegetables:
1- Bunch kale, "bruised."
2 cups- grated cauliflower or cooked quinoa.
1- Bunch green onions, chopped.
2- Carrots, finely grated. (Optional)
1- Medium zucchini, sliced and diced.  (Little cubes.)
2- Stalks celery, sliced and diced.
8 oz- Cherry tomatoes, halved length wise.

Dressing:
3 oz- Lemon Juice
1- Rounded TBS Red Miso paste.  (Vegetable bullion can be substituted.)
2oz- Olive oil.

Method:
1.  Blend all prepared Vegetables in large bowl.
2.  Prepare Dressing in shaker jar.  Be sure to shake vigorously to dissolve miso.
3. Blend Dressing into Vegetables and chill.

Note:
This recipe can be varied to suite the vegetables you prefer and have in your refrigerator.
We often add our protein to this salad for a one dish, Lean and Green compliant meal.
There is no right or wrong way, it is a very nutritious salad and however you tweak it is the right way.

Obesity Research and the National Institute of Health

The government agencies alone cannot make change.  "Weight of the Nation" takes a look at how the NIH is working to understand the complex problem of obesity.  NIH spends over $800,000,000 a year trying to find the answers.  Even spending all that money will not make a difference without you and I willing to take action.  It is time to step up to the plate, or step away from it.  Contact us today at Health Coach Resource and take action towards better health.



HBO recently released a new series entitled "The Weight of the Nation."  HBO is offering this presentation to anyone that wants to take action to help reverse this epidemic which is crippling our nation and the world.  Over the summer Health Coach Resource will be sharing short sections of this series as well as hosting a community showing and discussion this fall.  This is a message that needs to be shared everywhere, so please go online to http://theweightofthenation.hbo.com/ and share with your friends and community.  Take action for better health now ... don't hesitate, contact us today!

Kim's story ... gotta love it!Kim Fisck

Kim Fiske

One of the best things I love about coaching is the stories ... and the photos ... oh, an the smiles, and determination, and transformation and ... everything!!! 

I have never been able to stick to any eating plan, and had decided I was a hopeless foodaholic! I had ZERO self-control or willpower. Although I had no belief this program would work for me (I had just finished failing yet another plan) I thought I would give it a try...mainly to keep my story straight that I have tried EVERYTHING! Even without massive exercise...I lost 50 pounds and went from wearing size 20 to size 10. (now even some 8's!)

Friday, August 3, 2012

I'll chose this guy for my coach any day!


This is so inspiring ... I've watched in three times already and will watch it any time I'm having a "Pity Party" or "Wish I were Better" moment!  It's like a gift to savor and share ... This is how I feel about our clients and coaches!!!

In addition to doing a presentation, Greg and I (and three of our coaches) are going to be one of the 27 vendors!!  We are so excited and would like to invite you to come see us on Saturday and Sunday.  Here's the info:


Health Coach Resource invites you 
To Participate in OMSI’s New Dirt to Dinner Event this weekend!
Visitors are Invited to Get Hands-on at Free Bilingual Festival that Celebrates Food Sustainability

Health Coach Resource will be one of dozens participating in a one-of-a-kind, free, bilingual festival at OMSI that explores the life cycle of food – from farm to table and beyond. The Dirt to Dinner event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, August 4 and 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and highlights activities and organizations, like Health Coach Resource, that support sustainable food choices.

Dirt to Dinner will help families learn more about the different stages of food -- where it comes from and how it gets there.

Afraid of Failure?

People have many reasons for not contacting us, not accepting the invitation for coaching, not trying the Program ... The biggest reason is Fear ...

  • Fear strangers: "What will they think of me?  What if it's another hyped up scam?"
  • Fear of getting hopes up and having them dashed: "What if I can't do it?  Or hate it?" 
  • Fear of change: "When I was slim, guys looked at me and I was vulnerable ..."
  • Fear of failure:  None of us want to start a program to lose weight and gain health then experience the deep disappointment of regaining the lost pounds of fat with interest! Click here for more info on Fear of Failure

As a Health Coach, my "job" is to present the information, show the way, and mentor you through the process of losing weight without hunger or typical dieting frustration.  My REAL goal is to discover YOUR goals, guide you through our rapid weight loss program and help you regain health beyond your wildest dreams!!!

Finally, each client is unique and wants a slightly different style of coaching.  Each of our Health Coaches is willing to invest the time and energy to match the style of coaching and connection you need so that "Fear of Failure" need never be a reason for putting off coming on program, setting your goals, and getting on the path to regaining your health!
