weight loss through EFT

I was sitting on the sofa with my 5-year old reading stories when he suddenly exclaimed in amazement: “Mommy, how do you do that?!” He was pointing at my tummy.

There it was, sticking out like a soccer ball, plump and solid.

Unfortunately, it was not due to another pregnancy or bad posture. No, my son simply pointed out the obvious: mommy had a gut.

For some reason, I was not able to reciprocate my son’s enthusiasm and admiration.

Instead, I felt embarrassed to see myself like that. However, I was not ready to do anything about it. Not yet.

The life-changing insight did not come until about a month later when my husband and I were sitting in an elegant Vancouver restaurant, enjoying a sumptuous lunch buffet. That’s when it hit me like a ton of bricks – or a barrel of liposuction fat:

“I cannot go on living like this! I cannot go on pretending that every meal is an all-you-can-eat feast, and he or she who eats the most, wins. I don’t think this will be good for my waist line!”

What waist line?

It was on this late December morning that I found the resolve to change my ways with food. My desire to be slim, fit, and healthy was over 40 lbs. slowly and steadily. It is a personal transformation that changed my life in many wonderful and sometimes surprising ways. Read more

Overcome Sense of Being “Stuck” – Learn to Live Life “Full-Throttle”

“I accidentally removed my hand from the motorcycle throttle while in first gear. The next instant I was slammed onto the garage floor, the air knocked out of me, with a 500-pound motorcycle covering my body…

The owner anxiously asked, ‘Are you still going to buy it?’ I jumped up, dusted off my jeans and responded, ‘Absolutely!’ ”

This dramatic story of a sudden and spontaneous motorcycle purchase opens “Repotting Yourself, Financial-Emotional-Spiritual Flow”, the second and newest book by award-winning sales professional Mary Lou Dobbs.

The motorcycle incident is the catalyst for the 60-year-old Dobbs’s journey of profound personal transformation. Despite all of her substantial professional achievements and financial security, she realizes she is actually living a self-imposed “root-bound” life dedicated to staying small and fitting in.

When she learns to embrace change, rewrite her life story, release fears, be conscious of her intentions, words and actions and activate her “fun meter,” she moves in a direction of flow and ease and begins to live life “full-throttle.” Her business thrives in this prolonged recession, even while she writes “Repotting Yourself” full time, and she attracts an editor and publisher for the book with minimal effort.

In turbulent times, when so many are working harder and longer – with a sense of being frustrated and “stuck” – Dobbs’s story inspires readers to discover how they can transform their own lives.

Mary Lou Dobbs has always been a high achiever and Number One in her chosen field of insurance sales. At Lincoln National Life, she became the only woman in the company’s 75-year history to win a national sales contest. During her eight-year tenure with Wells Fargo, the fourth largest bank and financial institution in the United States, Dobbs functioned as a master coach, working with bank presidents and managers to embrace change and then coach and mentor their own employees. When she assumed the position of senior vice president of the company’s new Insurance Department, she became the top national salesperson six consecutive years in a row.

The innovations she introduced to transform what she calls “a stodgy bank culture” included building and reinforcing employee self-esteem through coaching sessions, goal setting, praise and power phrases — which successfully transitioned bankers into a dynamic sales culture.

Before writing “Repotting Yourself…” this outstanding professional, keynote speaker, coach, seminar leader and owner of the Albuquerque, NM-based firm, Executive Benefit Strategies penned “The Cinderella Salesman” (Farnsworth: Rockville Centre, NY, 1982).  Endorsed by Og Mandino, and with a forward by the then president of Lincoln Financial, Ean M. Rowland, it was a pioneering guide to building a career in sales.
