Weight Loss Artist*, Janice Taylor, most certainly did not wake one morning with a smile on her face and enthusiastically say, “Whoopee, I’m fatter than ever. I’ll go on a diet. This will be fun!”
No. She rolled out of bed, pulled up her size XXL elastic-band pants and said, “Oh my, even these are tight. I must stop the fat monster from further multiplying before HE takes me over entirely.” She prayed for guidance.
That’s when Our Lady of Weight Loss entered the picture. “Who is Our Lady? Where did she come from?” you ask. Janice wonders as well, “Is Our Lady a higher-power, the higher-self, the ‘good’ Mother that lives within each of us, or is she just a fig newton of my wild imagination? Does it really matter?”
What matters is that instead of eating crazy amounts of fried foods, heavily buttered bread and chocolate in any form, Janice was able to permanently remove over 50 pounds of excess weight 5 years ago.
“I exchanged fat for art,” she explains. “Our Lady guides me and ‘feeds’ me messages, and I illustrate them. At first, I created the art just for myself, but soon friends and acquaintances wanted to know the secret to my oh-so-fabulous success.”
Our Lady of Weight Loss instructed Janice to write and illustrate a book. Our Lady of Weight Loss: Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal – is divinely delicious. A five-course meal consisting of Motivational Musings, faToids, Righteous Recipes, Chewing the Fat (letters to Our Lady) and Weighty Confessions (forgiveness guaranteed!).
Janice wants you to know that “She’s not MY Lady of Weight Loss. She’s OUR Lady of Weight Loss. She’s here for all of us!”
O, the Oprah Magazine deemed Janice a “kooky genius,” and further suggested that Janice’s “idiosyncratic diet plan may work for you.” True enough!
*What is a Weight Loss Artist™??? You ask? A Weight Loss Artist is someone who makes art about food instead of eating it and loses weight in the process.
