DEAR SAGE:  When I was younger, I was able to eat whatever I wanted and the weight would magically melt off! Now that I’m a little older, that magic is gone. I try everything, but I just can’t seem to lose weight and keep it off. I get sucked in by every magazine cover that promises to help you lose 10 pounds in a week. It never really works out. Please help me to get out of this weight loss merry-go-round!

DEAR DIETER: Thank you for your question! This is a huge subject of great importance…for in this life, we only have one body and our livelihood is dependent on how well we take care of it. I think the real issue here is that the focus has become on weight loss instead of having a healthy lifestyle.

So you’re right…thinking about weight loss is a lot like a merry-go-round! You will have ups and downs and feel like you’re spinning round and round, but not getting anywhere. Getting off the ride involves re-evaluating your habits and making some different decisions. Let’s begin!

DEAR SAGE: Ok so at the beginning of the school year, I developed a crush on the boy in my class. So I told my best friend. She had also developed a crush on the same guy! But she never told me until a couple weeks ago! So a couple weeks ago, I heard that the boy that I had a crush on was gonna ask my best friend out!!!!! And guess what she said…. YES!!!!!!

So after she said yes, I got really mad at her because she knew that I had a huge crush on him!!! I really don’t trust her as a friend anymore! But she has done so many more things that really hurt my feelings! it’s not just this incident!!! I don’t know what to do… I REALLY LIKED HIM!!!!!! :( :( :( :( :*

DEAREST LOVE: O.M.G! This is a tricky situation! Let me ask you a question…what would have happened if your crush asked you out and you said yes? What would that have been like for your friend? It is dangerous business to base a friendship on which one of you the guy picks! Someone is going to lose in that situation. True friendships are based on how you treat each other…it should not be about people outside of your friendship. Crushes come and go, best friends are true friends that are there for you through all of that!

DEAR SAGE: Greetings. One of my greatest issues is putting things off and never see the “yield” of great ideas and promise. I can’t seem to stay excited or motivated to see things through. So my question is: Am I self sabotaging? Am I lacking confidence? Or am I just plain lazy? I have a wealth (literally) of ideas but can’t seem to get them from my head to fruition! I pray I’m not a lost cause. Thank you in advance for your response.

DEAR DREAMER: You are not a lost cause! And you are not alone in this struggle! And I thank you for bravely identifying and communicating this area of opportunity for yourself. I suspect that your dreams are so big that you may have a hard time knowing where to start. Here’s my advice for you: first start a dream journal and record all of those brilliant ideas! Take some quiet time out to record all of your genius. Write out everything! No matter how crazy and impossible it seems. Next, take a look at all of your great ideas and pick the easiest one! Yes…the EASIEST!
