The ducks love me. And, rightly so! 🙂 My office is in the most beautiful location, trees, water, fresh, green, lush, and…sinking. It’s a wetlands. And it’s wetter than usual. We’ve had some flooding.
What used to be the tenant office parking area for my building is now part of a giant mud puddle, or as I call it, “the swamp.” While it’s harder for us humans to scrounge for parking spaces, the ducks and other wildlife love it! And the ducks love me.
I feed them. Duckbread.
Yesterday I was walking to my office by way of the swamp, and in it were 7 tiny baby ducks, several adults and one “half-pint” sized duck. I see them every day! Those are “my ducks.” 🙂 They were all hungry, apparently. I had made a special trip to the Orowheat bakery thrift store (again) here in Bellevue to get a big package of bread for the ducks, and now…feasting time. Duck frenzy. A happy frenzy.
It is so cute to see those baby ducks eating. And the happy sounds! 🙂 One thing I’ve noticed about ducks, though, they stop eating when they’ve had enough. I’ll be tossing out the breadcrumbs and they’ll be scarfing them down, then suddenly they’re swimming away, totally disinterested. Done! Time to preen, time to sit in the sun. The rest of the bread gets picked up and whisked away by the giant crows that also live in the area.
These ducks look VERY healthy.
What a good lesson for humans, too. Stop eating when you’ve had enough. In fact, that’s part of the “Naturally Slender Healthy Eating Strategy” I help install in clients during hypnosis. NLP studies excellence and “what works.” I help people take on the unconscious patterns of naturally slender people–and my clients become slender. It works! Goodbye, bored eating. Goodbye, stress eating. Goodbye, I have to finish my plate eating. Goodbye, I see it so I have to eat it eating. Hello, healthy eating. Hello, in-tune-with-the-body eating.
Ducks know things. Useful things. And they know that I’m a friend and want the best for them. I want that for my clients, too. If you would like to eat healthier and take on the habits, thoughts, feelings that go along with healthy and result in weight loss and ongoing weight management, maybe it’s time for hypnosis.
I know whereof I speak. I live the “healthy eating strategy” and it’s a huge part of how I lost 80+ pounds. Now, whether you’ve got 8 to lose, or 80, these tools will reshape your life and body. Call me and find out more: (425) 564-8608. http://www.loseweightseattle.com.
