HASAY Secret Strategy Revealed

Sometimes, you just fall into something that works for your dieting efforts without really trying. That's just the way the world works. I have learned that running around the house half-naked is a great way to curb your appetite and lose those stubborn pounds, even if I feel a little foolish doing so.

It all began with my thought to wash all the windows of the house prior to everyone arriving for the Thanksgiving holiday. For the exterior windows, I attach the hose to the Windex Outdoor window product to get the windows to really shine. I usually get very wet and now I have Wrigley (14 month old golden retriever) to "help me" wash the windows, so there's a greater chance of getting wet and dirty, too.

I chose a bathing suit top and shorts for this chore, which looked pretty bad even to my loyal dog companion. When I went by the TV room where Bill was watching football, I sucked in my stomach and held my breath until I got outside. I prayed golfers wouldn't get too close to my backyard and get an eye full. Still, I had a job to do so got started. I know what you're thinking. The vision in your head just now is:

(You're welcome, Chris). Not exactly! It was more like:

And now for the ladies, a little window washing treat...

So many window washing videos, so little time!

Still, I find it fascinating that wearing less, changed my behavior and eating habits so drastically.

Original HASAY weight: 135 pounds

Holy crap woman, you're down six pounds already? Awesome! I like how you sucked in for your husband, that's true love right there! I do the same thing...
Oh, and my HASAY epiphany was today when I was trying on clothes in a dressing room. Not good. Keep it up, you'll look like that first video soon. And who keeps a kitten in their pants? That didn't come out right...

Way to go on the weight loss. I wish I could run around with less clothing on but I would freeze to death - it's only 35 degrees here today! Brrr!

Interesting strategy. I'm pretty sure if I spent more time naked my brain would eventually just get used to the way I look ;)

Six pounds is awesome. Nothing like a little naked window washing to remind you of all the jiggly places that need your attention. Congrats. Good luck this week.

I think the whole male window washer video would have been sooo much better with a tiny golden retriever, myself!

Great videos! I am waiting for the release of the video of you washing windows...Oh, yeah, that was you in the Go Daddy one.

I've been doing the low GI diet and exercising like a maniac. I've lost 14 lbs in 4 months, lowered my body fat% and decreased inches on my hips, waist and arms.
