My First Blog Post:

Do You Want to Learn How to STICK to Any Healthy Weight Loss Plan?

The Purpose Of This Blog

To teach yo yo dieters (those desperate souls who lose and gain and lose and gain over and over and over) how to STICK to any sensible weight loss or weight maintenance plan(s) they choose.

To share proven ways to organize your head, heart, and hectic life for PERMANENT weight maintenance AND peace with food.

To be informative, motivational, supportive, and kind of fun to hang out with.

(The first few blog posts involve you just reading, but I think it is important for you to get an overview of what you can hope to finally accomplish by hanging out with me on my blog.

As soon as you have skimmed through this post, please leave me a comment–or email me–and tell me what you think and how I might be most helpful to you.)

  • Anyone seeking specific diet plans or diet recipes—there are already tons of good diets and recipes available.
  • Anyone wanting silly, or unhealthy, or simplistic, or trite answers to our complex, unique issues with food.

How Is Judy Payne (Me) A Different And More Effective Diet “Expert”?

  • I Used My Weight Problem As A Catalyst To Become An Introspective And Better Person—And You Can Too!
  • I have been successful at maintaining my 100-pound weight loss for over 35 years. (do you know how rare that is?)

I Will Be Your Skinny School Teacher and Friend.

  • I am not just a teacher of theories I LIVE what I teach.
  • I believe diets are simply basic training for maintenance.
  • I have spent years helping other compulsive eaters and yoyo dieters
  • I teach “How-To-Stick-To-Any-Good-Weight Control Plan”.
  • My attitude toward fellow fat fighters is one of empathy and understanding.
  • Even more importantly, I can help you quit being prejudiced against yourself and to claim your dignity and develop the self‑esteem that are your due‑‑regardless of your size.
  • I have documented my fascinating, successful journey as I have lived it.
  • I am old, thus I have had 35 years of practice and can give you my wisdom and evidence of what has worked (and hasn’t worked) for me.
  • I am not “skinny”. I maintain between 150 and 155 lbs.
  • I don’t exercise any more than I have too.
  • I don’t weigh very often. (I will explain in another blog post.)
  • I am kind of funny.
  • I used my own unique, but logical, 4-step approach to achieve my life and weight goals.
  • I never wanted to be a speaker or a writer, but I have some important help I HAVE to share.
  • Finally, I want you to know that the reason I am writing this blog is not because I think all people should want to fit society’s rigid weight standards. I am doing it because of my desire to use my experiences and findings to help other women “get it all glued together” so they can live their lives more abundantly—and share their love and gifts with the world.

I hope I don’t sound like a know-it-all!  I don’t know it ALL, but I know a heck of a lot more than most diet “experts”.) read more

What Are the Differences Between Other Good Weight-Loss “Experts’” Approaches and My Long-Term, Effective, and Proven Hybrid Approach?

Two Prevalent Kinds of Good “Experts”:

1. Credible, well-intentioned (often male) diet experts who may be boring and life-long thin. They have a remarkable grasp of the obvious but not the physical and emotional ability to feel our pain and frustration. They can give us nothing more than short-term easy answers to our long-term complicated problems. They tell us it is “simply a matter of eating less and exercising more.” For crying out loud—we know that!  The devil is in the crippling details that keep sabotaging your long-term success. Nevertheless, you still need to rely on their conservative, irrefutable, scientific, short-term facts. read more

Blog Post 4:

What Is The 4-Step Plan?

Your Skinny School Guide For Learning
How To Organize Your Head, Heart, and Hectic Life!

The explanatory picture below is loaded with cheesy symbolism.

  • The bottle of DietGlue that you will use to learn how to STICK to a diet and get your whole like glue together. (Notice the word DietGlue is STUCK together.)
  • The 4 steps you will use to achieve success.
  • The four shades of gray on the four steps, and on the chevrons on my dress and on the nozzle of the glue bottle. They are to symbolize that our  problems aren’t just black and white, but complex shades of gray.
  • A little Judy will be your guide.

* There is an  animated version of this image, at the bottom of this page. I spent hours learning how to do that darn animation and my son wrote the little jingle that goes with it.)

Only in retrospect, did I realize that I did these 4 effective steps to achieve my weight loss and permanent weight maintenance. Now you have the huge advantage of a guided tour through these 4-steps. (Most dieters just do some of the stuff in Step 4–over and over and over—and over.)

If you are ready to start peeling back some of those fat layers of self-deception and go on an interesting learning adventure into your own head, heart and hectic life, I will guide you through the basics. read more
