Our Lady will inspire women everywhere to “lighten up”—in more ways than one!

As millions of women can attest, losing weight is hard work, and even the most resolute of dieters often fail. What’s missing from nearly every diet program is the support and humor women need to keep on track and lose those pounds for good. Here, Our Lady of Weight Loss—the patron saint of fat removal—comes to the rescue with miraculous motivation for all!

In this unique book, Our Lady shares her tried-and-true gospel of weight loss guaranteed to lift readers’ spirits and finally make dieting fun. A fat-free, calorie-free, carb-free, guilt-free helping of divine inspiration, Our Lady of Weight Loss is the ultimate cheerleader for women everywhere and the best friend who will keep them on course even when the brownies beckon like a siren. With the help of Our Lady readers will:
• Stay inspired with “motivational musings” and tips
• Curb their cravings and keep their creative appetite satisfied with “pious projects”
• Confess their chocolate or french fry transgressions and move on
• Indulge in healthy and simple “righteous recipes”

Part art object, part craft project, part bedside companion, and part cookbook, Our Lady of Weight Loss is perfect for any woman following a diet program and still searching for her “thinner core.” Quirky and soulful, with gorgeous four-color artwork throughout, this book will keep readers laughing on the rocky road to sveltesville and change their relationship with food forever. BACKCOVER: “Janice Taylor and her alter-ego, Our Lady of Weight Loss, give us just what we need—a lift, a laugh, and, of course, a kick in the tush. Taylor has found a unique way to fuse weight loss with creative expression, and she puts it out there to help others with wit and warmth."

Blueberry Sauce

From Abby, my daughter.

Pour this sauce on your toast or fruit, mix with yogurt, or just eat it by the spoonful. It is divine.

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • juice from freshly squeezed lemon
  • 1 pt. of blueberries
Heat water with light brown sugar until dissolved. Add lemon juice.

Then the blueberries. Just keep cookin' and stirrin' until it breaks down and it's all saucy.
