Body Building Mind Games: Don't Let Your Weight
Determine Your Mood
Is the 'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD) syndrome affecting
your output? That extra flab can overpower you
and your work. Thee feeling of being fat can morph
into an emotion like 'happy' or 'angry'. Days
overpowered with that feeling have been designated

and psychic energy on IFFDs, we could use those
special resources for the job at hand.Here's the
ultimate plan for coping with an IFFD:. Make your
