1.   Losing Weight - The Addiction of Comfort Food by Larry Tobin
    Its very name is appealing - comfort food. What could be more wonderful than a food that helps us feel better? Almost everyone can name something that they eat when they're just feeling sour or sad. Of course, we know that food can't be the solution to our problems, especially the problem of trying to lose weight and keep it off. So why do we find ourselves trapped in the eat/feel better/feel worse/eat some more cycle?

2.   Stop Stressing - Sacred Time and Space by Larry Tobin
    In addition to the way that stress becomes quite relentless and ever present in our lives, it also has a terrible habit of refusing to respect boundaries. If we learn the process of establishing boundaries and creating opportunities to rest - instead of just utilizing them as they show up - we can multiply the power of this rejuvenating phenomenon so that we feel more calm, empowered and at ease with our lives.

3.   Stop Stressing - Do, Defer, Delegate by Larry Tobin
    Sometimes the problem that we're dealing with isn't necessarily a matter of the stress itself, but rather the way we're approaching it. Fortunately, this also means that we can correct those same problems that we've made. What we need to learn to do is analyze, categorize and prioritize our efforts.

4.   Stop Stressing - Stressors and Themes by Larry Tobin
    One of the most important ways to identify stressors and their role is to figure out their theme. A theme is a sort of thread that ties seemingly different elements into the same whole. What seems like many problems is actually just one related, overall problem. Once we know our major stress themes, we can begin taking more appropriate big-picture steps along with smaller ones.

5.   Losing Weight - A Body in Motion by Larry Tobin
    Newton tells us that a body in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon; likewise, a body at rest will stay at rest until acted upon. This gives us a powerful metaphor for the difficulties of getting into a proper, healthy exercise habit that can help shed weight and keep it off. If we can break our old habits and get ourselves into a good, strong routine of healthy habits, we will find they are much easier to maintain. This applies just as much to exercise as to any other habit we have in mind. Taking it step by step (literally!) can make all the difference in the world.

6.   Stop Stressing - External Checks on Internal Perceptions by Larry Tobin
    It's very easy to take our perception as reality. We see a wall six feet away, we say it's six feet away. We feel hot, we say it is hot. The problem is, perceptions are a matter of perspective and information. This is one of the most important stress management tools available in our toolkit. Let's look at a healthy habit we can build to help combat our internal perceptions with external information.

7.   Stop Stressing - Using Systems to Gain Control by Larry Tobin
    So far, we've been focusing on using small steps and independent techniques to help deal with the stress which piles up in our lives. Each of these techniques is a good and proper one for dealing with stress. However, there is another technique that takes advantage of all the things we've talked about and makes them even more effective. This technique is called "system building."

8.   Stop Stressing - Finding Choices by Larry Tobin
    It's hard to make a good choice instead of a bad one. It can be even harder to go back and undo a bad choice that we made some time ago. Instead, many times we stubbornly reinforce it again and again, letting it build up over time to continue burying us in worry, regret and stress. If we genuinely want to build lifelong habits that will benefit us and reduce the amount of stress in our lives, we have to look seriously at every aspect of those lives and improve them.

9.   Losing Weight and Building Confidence by Larry Tobin
    Having confidence in your goal is important. It's tough to stick to something we don't believe we can do, after all. Just like all of our other behaviors, confidence also is a habit. It's a way of thinking that, if we cultivate it properly, will become automatic. People with more confidence try more things, take more risks and have more experiences overall than those of us without it. So let's look at a few ways we can cultivate that kind of confidence for ourselves.

10.   Stop Stressing - Don't Look Back by Larry Tobin
    The past can be a problematic albatross to carry around. We'll forget where we left our keys 20 minutes ago, but ask us to remember an embarrassing moment from our childhood and it will come to mind like a flash. For some reason, we seem incredibly predisposed toward reminiscing over troubling events. We replay and replay them in our minds until we can't focus on anything else but feeling mortified and wondering if we made the right decision. What's needed is a system - a way of approaching the problem piece by piece and addressing each part until we can settle it logically.

11.   Stop Stressing - Breathe Deep by Larry Tobin
    We can turn breathing from something that just happens automatically into a powerful, stress-controlling habit that allows us to regulate the way our body processes its energy. For those of us looking to reduce stress in our lives, following are a few tips on how to make breathing into a life-affirming habit.

12.   Stop Stressing - Resist the Urge to Time Travel by Larry Tobin
    For creatures that supposedly only exist in the present, we sure do a lot of time traveling. We worry about tomorrow, we fret over yesterday, and all the while our current status gets neglected. If we're going to make the best of our efforts to relieve stress and get to where we want to be, we need to make a habit of making the most out of the present, instead of letting time-traveling worries get the best of us.

13.   Losing Weight - Weighing In by Larry Tobin
    Part of our ultimate goal in doing all this habit changing is to lose weight, of course. Part of that is the practice of weighing in and seeing what our progress has been. Unfortunately, this is another area where people too frequently miss out on developing a good habit, and find instead discouragement and frustration. However, just like all other problems, there is an explanation and a habit that can help solve it.

14.   Stop Stressing - Just Say No by Larry Tobin
    As many people have commented at one time or another, we could get so much more done if there were just more hours in the day. So what's the problem? To be entirely fair without being harsh, we are the problem. More accurately, it's our inability to say no. If reducing stress is the goal, it's time that we learn to use the power of a well phrased 'no.'

15.   Stop Stressing: Visualize Success by Larry Tobin
    We're going to discuss a few ways to turn our mind from an enemy into our friend. Once we're in the habit of calling out our bad thoughts and pushing them out of the way, it's time to put good thoughts and positive visualizations in their place. The mind will fill up emptiness with more thoughts, so why not use these techniques to make sure they're thoughts that help, not hinder?

16.   Stop Stressing - Getting Away from Should by Larry Tobin
    People like to have a sense of purpose about things. We want to know that we're doing the right thing, and that our activities are going along according to "the plan." In short, we spend a lot of time either saying "I should..." or asking ourselves "what should I..." Instead of getting hung up on the "I shoulds" that keep tearing our confidence down, let's look at the way we can harness the power of "I want," and "I will."

17.   Stop Stressing - How to Log It and Block It by Larry Tobin
    An interesting thing about the human mind is that it tends to work largely on autopilot. Whether it is showering, driving to work, or making breakfast, there are large parts of our daily routines that occur without needing much conscious thought. Just as the mind can adopt behaviors as automatic, it can be made to think about them and break them down into meaningful pieces of information. To that end, we're going to look at a life-building habit called a Stress Log.

18.   Losing Weight - Share the Health with Family-Friendly Habits by Larry Tobin
    Kids pick up their eating habits from their parents. They get used to eating what their parents serve, and while they don't share all tastes with their parents, there ends up being a lot of commonality. Children pick up habits just like adults do, through repetition and example over a period of weeks and months. Making sure these habits are healthy is an important part of parenthood, and fortunately we have some advice to help make this process a little easier.

19.   Stop Stressing - Building Your Support Team by Larry Tobin
    There are many ways that we can allow others to help and encourage us in our efforts. The ultimate responsibility may come down on our shoulders, but that doesn't mean we're islands that have to stand entirely on our own. Families, friends, and oddly enough even entire strangers can be an amazing resource in our efforts to de-stress our lives. Here, we focus on some of the ways we can build a strong support group as we endeavor to kick the stress habit.

20.   Stop Stressing: the STOP Method by Larry Tobin
    Stress is a universal part of the human condition. In short, just about everything in our lives can be a source of stress. The key is not avoiding stress, but learning how to filter what kinds of stress we allow to affect us, and to stop the influence of the worst sources. With this in mind, we're going to take a look at the Habit Changer S.T.O.P. method of thought management.

22.   Losing Weight - Counting and Setting Goals by Larry Tobin
    Effective weight loss hinges on goal setting. While weight loss itself is our final goal, the end product we want to achieve, our weight loss journey isn't just a one-step process. If it were that easy everyone would likely have done it already. Here are some tips and tools to help you form the goal-centered habits needed to lose the weight, but gain a sense of accomplishment.

23.   Losing Weight - 3 Steps to Mix Socializing with Dieting by Larry Tobin
    We are a social and habitual species, so it's natural that we build up patterns of behavior related to socializing. While many calorie-centered rituals have the potential to thwart effective weight loss, socializing does not have to be in conflict with healthy eating habits. Here are three steps toward building positive weight management habits while you enjoy time out with your friends.

24.   Losing Weight - Taming Your Trigger Foods by Larry Tobin
    There are certain things we just cannot stop eating once we've begun. A bag of chips, bread, a favorite chocolate or candy, whatever it is that sets us off makes us keep eating until we feel over-full or finish the bag. These are what we call trigger foods, and they can be a serious stumbling block to trying to lose weight. Incorporate these two techniques into your routine over the next 30 to 60 days to take charge over those trigger foods.

25.   Losing Weight - The Power of Practicing No by Larry Tobin
    As a species, we are naturally inclined to say 'yes' to others. Unfortunately, sometimes we find ourselves saying yes even if it sets us back on our own goals and efforts to build good, healthy habits. Over the next 30 to 60 days, incorporate the tactics below to build your "No" muscle, and help yourself to healthier habits.

26.   Losing Weight: Redefine Full in Four Steps by Larry Tobin
    Overeating is about more than reckless epic binges or always ordering the double large portion from your favorite restaurant. In many cases it can actually be a very subtle occurrence, done one small step at a time rather than in a big and noticeable way. There are classic signs of overeating, and they are entirely manageable with good habit building.

27.   Losing Weight - STOP and Shed Inches by Larry Tobin
    One of the most interesting truths is that we are our own worst enemies. We can be full of confidence, exuberance, and encouragement for our friends and families.

There is a method for taking control of our thoughts and that little voice in our heads, a method called S.T.O.P.

29.   Losing Weight - A Pattern of Portion Control by Larry Tobin

31.   Weight Loss - Walking off the Pounds by Larry Tobin
    Walking is a near universal opportunity to burn a few more calories every day, everywhere we choose to go. It is the most basic exercise. We move muscles, and those muscles burn calories as we go. But it's such an automatic thing to do that we often forget the benefits that a good walking routine can provide us. So, let's take a look at five quick ways we can take advantage of our walking habit without going out of our way.
