MYST 198: I Feel Guilty

In this holiday season, many of us tend to eat more than might be optimal. I posted on my LoseIt page about my upcoming Christmas Dinner and a friend named Gordon responded with “Enjoy….no guilt!” And I thought, “I never feel guilty about what I choose to eat.” And why should we feel guilty? It is ... Read moreMYST 198: I Feel Guilty


MYST 197 How Do You Do It?

Success is the result of finishing a task. But the ability to finish a task is dependent on whether we work toward our goal consistently, and if we enjoy what we are doing to reach that goal. That applies to weight loss, writing a book or running a marathon. If we don’t enjoy the process, ... Read moreMYST 197 How Do You Do It?


MYST 196 Trained Fleas

We trap ourselves with our beliefs. We let our previous stumbles define our total capabilities. Weight loss is hard, and it never ends. We sometimes find ourselves stepping on the scale and seeing a number that our mind says “Nope! That’s it! We can’t lose more!” And you don’t lose more. You have reached your limit, ...

MYST 195 Good Enough

Are you good enough? How about your weight? Is it “good enough”? Are you quitting? “Good enough” implies that you are complacent now and that any further progress is not worth the effort. And if that’s the case, then just say “I’m done”. To do anything else is to play word games with yourself. You ... Read moreMYST 195 Good Enough


MYST 194 Family Advice

“Wow! You’ve lost a lot of weight. I think you might be getting too skinny!” “Huh. Sure, I suppose YOU are going to just eat a salad while we all eat real food!” How do those comments make you feel about yourself, about your progress, about your self-worth? Your friends and family might actually think ... Read moreMYST 194 Family Advice


MYST 193 Sharp Spikes

Winning a race and setting a record does not happen by accident. Without the proper preparation, planning and the ability to choose the environment–and reject unhealthy environments–success will not happen. And even then, usually success only occurs after at least one failure. Roger Bannister set a new record in the one-mile race on May 6, ... Read moreMYST 193 Sharp Spikes



In this show, I am not talking about just any food, but food kryptonites. Those are food that will trigger a binge. These are foods that you truly cannot “eat just one” because once you start it as though someone opened the floodgates of hunger and you won’t stop eating until it is all gone ...

MYST 191 Preplan

We plan our work days and work weeks months in advance. We keep our calendars with us at all times. In the “old days” we used paper day planners (remember the big “Franklin planners”?) Now all of our calendars are on every digital device we have. Why? It’s because we are busy! We have so many demands ... Read moreMYST 191 Preplan

MYST 189 Next Step

What are you going to do when your current plan falters? Yes, of course, you can keep doing what you have been doing, but when that fails what will you add? In episode 187 I talked about FOCUS (Follow One Course Until Successful–or Stagnant) and I believe that is the most basic action. Find a ... Read moreMYST 189 Next Step


MYST 188: K.I.S.S.

KISS: Keep it Slow and Simple Success requires changes in actions and attitudes, and not all changes are simple. When you choose a plan–for a weight loss goal or any other goal–if the plan is complex, it is more likely to break down. Compare a boiled egg with a basic souffle. Each recipe uses the same ...

MYST 187 F.O.C.U.S.

Photos via Pixabay by Pexels (camera) and Skeeze (archery) FOCUS: Follow one course until successful (or stagnant). And in weight loss, “stagnant” does not mean “Oh, woe is me, I haven’t lost weight in two days”. It means no change in more than a month. (And “no change” is exactly that. If you’ve lost one ...

MYST 186 Simple and Easy

Things can be simple. Things can be easy. Some things are both. But not weight management. The rules of weight loss–whether it is CICO or keto, or Nutrisystem–are simple. Rules and instructions can be simple. It is the performance and follow-through that is not necessarily easy. And is even harder to continue indefinitely. Photos via Pixabay ...

MYST 185 Grab Your Success

How do you find success? You don’t find success. You make success from the raw materials you are given. That means you don’t lose weight magically. You need to eat less. Or move more. Or both. You may want to lose weight at two pounds a week, but you may only be capable of losing ... Read moreMYST 185 Grab Your Success


MYST 184: Log Your Food!

Accountability is one key to success. Do people know what you eat? Do they know how much you eat? When those details are hidden, it is easier to apply a veneer of misleading success to an otherwise successless journey. I have decided to post more frequent shows, and for every show, I will have a ... Read moreMYST 184: Log Your Food!


MYST 183: Chickens and Other Changes

So, backyard chickens alone won’t disrupt a weight loss plan. But if you decide to get backyard chickens, and then other life events strike (and nothing that is considered a “strike” is usually good) then the combination can roll into a mess. That’s what happened to me. I received three new chickens in April. Coop ... Read moreMYST 183: Chickens and Other Changes


MYST 182 Prospective Statements Bring Power!

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.

MYST 181: Talking to the Expert

There are tens of thousands of books on weight loss. Maybe hundreds of thousands. All of them are correct. And all are wrong. See, here is the thing. Those books are written by experts. They know exactly what you need to do to have weight loss success. And every authors says “This is the best ... Read moreMYST 181: Talking to the Expert


MYST 180: Forget Inspiration!

Lawn Care, Ego, and Habits The Wisconsin seasons are beautiful and messy, wonderful and terrible. (If you didn’t know, Wisconsin has weather that can change rapidly.) But the weather can also be used in weight loss. Winter snows bring Fitbit Adjustments, especially if you have a moderate-sized driveway and a sidewalk to clear. Spring brings yard ...

MYST 179: Chaos, Confusion and the Bathroom Scale

Bathroom scales. We love them. And we hate them. But mostly we hate them. I mean, think about it. When you see a weight drop, you think to yourself “Well, finally!” as if the scale had been cheating you recently but not showing a loss. When you see a weight gain—and we all see ...
