Gary’s #1 Fat Loss System: Lose it Quickly & Safely

by Gary Loper on December 29, 2012

Greetings & Welcome


Welcome backIn the month of December Caryl and I celebrate our anniversary. Also, like many other people, the last few weeks of December are packed with celebrations, with company parties, friends and family gatherings and intimate get-togethers. Holidays are a time for rejoicing, to celebrate the journey in the past year, the promises of tomorrow, and to share joy and love with those that matter.


Around our anniversary Caryl baked our favorite cake, a coconut/pineapple cake with whip cream frosting.  We included chocolate in our ritual. I found that as I increased my sugars, I gave into my periodic cravings, like the candy, Hot Tamales. That desire for sugars again increased.

The festive holiday celebrations were rich foods, high in fats and sugars.  One of my drink attractions over the years has been Mountain Dew. Yes, I know there are much better choices; and yet, there are times, especially around the holidays I choose to eat rich desserts and drink soda.  I made a personal agreement: to eliminate the guilt trip, and eat/drink in moderation. I realize that I made a conscious choice, and to badger or punish oneself is counterproductive.  So, around the holiday celebration I moderately ate rich foods and had my favorite drink, Mountain Dew.  After consuming foods laden with sugars, simple carbs and gluten, my body began to react. Clearly it was stating …. “Don’t do that anymore.”

During this time period, I did add walking. I noticed that with repetition that my stamina increased, I didn’t need to take a nap (which had been equal to the time I took when walking). Napping diminished and was eliminated over time. I found the benefits of walking huge physically and psychologically.  The ability to move and sweat, and take in the positive of attributes of being in the environment and soaking up sunshine was most beneficial. Most importantly, as I learned from my yoga instructor, it was critical to do breath work and limit water intake; it turns up the furnace.  However, for safety factors, if you feel faint, certainly drink! Otherwise, allow that internal fire to burn, to burn up the fat.

With my commitment to moderation, in spite of the added fats and sugars, and continuing with my Fat Loss System, I was able to maintain the weight and still lose inches!  I have lost 36 7/8” in total!  Now I am totally back on track.

I welcome you to continue with me on my personal journey of fat loss. The purpose of my blog is to touch other people’s lives, share my story, so they can find HOPE …. There is something that does work!

Good for you GARY! Due to chronic pain it is very important for me to exercise. If I miss a week I feel it. food plays a huge part in how I feel. I can’t eat things I used to and feel good. I do believe it is so important for people to have a small piece of cake if they want, our problem is we don’t stop at the small piece. Potato chips are my downfall…could eat the whole bag! :) I quit buying soda and hardly ever drink it now. It’s amazing how eating “clean” for a few weeks gives you more energy and takes away the cravings of the high sugar foods. Glad you are finding something that is working for you. I have 2 teenage daughters and at times I want to throw the scale away! It is about feeling good and looking good. many times your skin reflects what you’ve put in your body, same as your energy level. Have a great new year, and stay healthy!

Greetings Eva, So true regarding exercise, I have just completed my 1100th straight day of yoga. I’ve been practicing for almost 20 years and my body craves it, going a couple hours out of routine leaves my body & mind restless. You bring a great point & something I will explore in part 5, is that my body senses the nutritional value in the food I see. At a couple recent events I noticed the food on other people’s plates and saw that food as being dead – no good stuff that my body could use as fuel. I am still working on my soda cravings – but did notice the last time I drank some how it made me feel and it was not good after the first couple sips. Let me know how you are progressing in your journey.

Gary, tnx for sharing your experience on weight loss & body transformation. It is informative & inspiring. My husband & I just started a devotional-walking exercise, 30mins, thrice weekly. The fresh air and seeing the day break as we walk along has been awesome. We are coping well with the body pain. ‘no pain without gain.’ Exercise is truly worth it.

Gloria, Gain can be accomplished without pain. In yoga we learn to keep control of our breath while pushing to the edge. When the breath become short, we’ve gone to far and need to back off to where we can be on the edge and still maintain control of breath. In doing this both on and off the mat, I feel energized with each exercise session – and looking forward to the next session. When we create pain for ourselves we will not be looking forward to the next session and will not give it the energy to receive the best results. It’s a little shift of thought & words that could make an even better result for you both. Blessings
