What is Amy Winehouse, Miley Cyrus,and Mike Golic Doing For Thanksgiving?

I have no idea!!!! but I hope Miley Cyrus keeps on singing since my soon-to-be stepdaughter, Rebecca, LOVES her. Former Pro Football Star Mike Golic is a great radio announcer and thanks for admitting to using steroids...10 years after you retired from football!!! I am sure you have helped many aspiring young lineman choose not to use steroids. It's plain and simple... Steroids are for cheaters!!!! I hope Amy Winehouse stays away from drugs and just as important, cigarettes, since she has such an amazing voice....what a talent!!!

Here are some of my tips for those who are trying to help there close ones quit smoking:

1. help lighten their stress levels. help the quitter with a few chores like watching their kids, cooking -- whatever will help of quitting

2.Don't take the quitter's grouchiness personally during his or her nicotine withdrawal. The symptoms usually dissipate in about 2 weeks.

3. Studies show that most people try to quit smoking 5 to 7 times before they succeed. If a relapse happens, think of it as being one step closer to succeeding and not failing!!!!

Brad and Angelina Never Struggle As Emotional Eaters Struggle Most At Dieting and Weightloss!

Get ready for this emotional eaters....like me.....when we eat feeling lonely or blue, tend to lose the least amount of weight and have the hardest time keeping it off. Doesn't that stink! Heather Niemeier, an obesity researcher at The Miriam Hospital and The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, said in a statement. "We found that the more people report eating in response to thoughts and feelings, the less weight they lost,"
The study included 286 overweight men and women who were participating in a behavioral weight loss program.

A second group consisted of more than 3,300 adults who have lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for at least one year.Niemeier and her team analyzed responses to an eating inventory questionnaire.They focused on people who ate because of external influences, such as people who eat too much at parties, and people who ate because of internal influences, such as feeling lonely or as a reward.

What they found is that the more a person ate for internal reasons, the less weight they lost over time."Our results suggest that we need to pay more attention to eating triggered by emotions or thoughts as they clearly play a significant role in weight loss," Niemeier said.

So, what can you do if emotional eating is a problem?
Make a conscious effort to become more aware of how and why you may be using food or what is going on around you while you are eating. Develop new skills for mood regulation. If you need support to do so, find a professional. The focus should be on improving your emotional and physical well-being not just weight loss.

You must check out a delicious healthy carbonated drink called "Fizzy Lizzy" from Lizzy herself Lizzy Morrill. Lizzy shared her amazing journey from coming up with the idea all the way to producing it. This amazing beverage is spreading like wildfire all over the country. Some of the great flavors it comes in are: Red Hill Pomegranate, Gulf Coast Tangerine, Pacific Raspberry Lemon, Mount Fuji Apple, Yakima Valley Grape, Costa Rican Pineapple, Northern Lights Cranberry and Lone Star Grapefruit. Eight great fruity bubbly flavors. For more information about Lizzy and her Fizzy fun drink check out her website www.fizzylizzy.com and make sure you ask the store manager of your favorite grocery store to stock it if they don't already. I have tried Pineapple and Pomegranate and loved them both. What I like about it is more fruit juice less calories and for an alternative for the kids or adults, this can't be beat!!!! I'm not even on the payroll!!!
