Wouldn't it be great if there existed in this world a singular person or entity who had all the answers to your questions regarding health, nutrition, and weight loss? This person would know exactly what to say about your specific circumstance and present the information to you in such a way that you felt good about yourself and honestly believed you could make the necessary changes in your life with little pain. For the millions of overweight and obese, that would be a miracle.

Well, I hope you believe in miracles because such a person DOES exist. Her name is Our Lady of Weight Loss and she spoke to a woman named Janice Taylor at a weight loss clinic of all places in 2001. From that day forward, Janice saw a change in her life like she had never experienced on any diet she had ever been on and completely turned her life around.

Does all this pseudo-religious talk sound a little spooky to you? LOL! Yeah, it did me, too. That is, until I kept reading and found out how these principles are what helped Janice Taylor shed 50 pounds and keep them off.

For the past five years, she has been helping others hear the voice of Our Lady of Weight Loss through her life coaching, motivational speakin, creative artwork, and Kick in the Tush Club (visit [...] for more information). And because of her growing success, she decided to write a book about her experiences to help even more people discover what she and her faithful flock have found. The book is entitled "Our Lady of Weight Loss: Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal.

Janice Taylor has written a book that *every* women needs--because although it's about weight and healthy eating, it's also about self-care, self-love and positive living (and don't all women need this?). It's about putting healthy, loving morsels into your mouth, not about beating yourself up when you don't. Her artwork, her humor, her message "of course you can do it!" and when you can't "confess and move on" ...are highly original and make you smile. I showed my office of 7 women this book, and everyone, all generations, laughed out loud and instantly loved the artwork, information, and attitude. She has fabulous rituals, recipes, motivational musings, art projects and assignments (make art about food instead of eating it!), and lots more. It has the nuts and bolts of dieting and healthy eating, but it has much more: her unrelenting belief that we all can change our life; her personal, inspiring story; and a humorous, creative approach in a normally droll topic. It's on my nightstand.

(And her "Ten Commandments of Permanent Fat Removal" you just might to put on your kitchen wall!)

I have been an avid reader of Janice Taylor's Kick in the Tush Club e-newsletter for ages, and I'm thrilled her book is finally available! Her advice is warm, wise, and witty; her recipes are a snap to make even for the culinarily-challenged; and her art projects are so simple they can fit any busy person's day. My favorite? The Weighty Bookmark. Our Lady of Weight Loss transforms eating healthfully from a chore into an artistic statement.

I'm a very artsy person and I've never been able to relate to straight-laced dieting/healthy lifestyle books. Thank God for *Our Lady* - all the ideas within the covers are presented so uplifting and entertaining that you can't help but have fun on your journey to slimville. Janice Taylor presents all of this valuable information in a yummy, lip smacking, hard-to-resist package, and I think combining the self-empowerment craft projects with the nutritional info is pure genius! Graditude girdle? Sign me up!! Finally, after reading this book I feel like I CAN REALLY DO IT!! Thank you Janice!

By Bonnie Neely on January 29, 2007
Format: Paperback
Our Lady Of Weight Loss has Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal...written and illustrated by Janice Taylor. This vividly and imaginatively illustrated book depicts the patron saint most Americans wish would help cure obesity or simple over-eating. Taylor describes the saint's warnings and advice in humorous fashion. However, the author, who had for years fought the battle of ping-ponging many pounds off and on again, shares very useful tips and tricks that have helped her achieve her weight goal and maintain it. I have read and followed many diet books through the years, and this one is refreshingly new and has sound ideas with terrific whimsical illustrations that stick in your mind and help keep you on track and away from the refrigerator at midnight. Read the book, stare at the cute pictures, and voila! you'll have a diet angel sitting on your shoulder warning you about what you eat. A good one!

I'm not much of a dieter, and let's face it, my relationship with food has been rocky at times. And I just don't like self-help books that preach at me to mend my ways. But this colorful, lighthearted, honest and entertaining look at how to eat and live well isn't like a diet book--every page puts a smile on my face. The recipes are great--we've become hooked on kale (now that's miraculous).
