8:08 am
of the new year's resolutions topping the wish list of most americans for 2016. you among them, you don't need to. >> working out is important. >> i just lost 20 pounds. >> the magic of having a baby and being on tape. >> but how can you get there when you feel like you have tried it all. abc's mara schiavocampo is here with her own inspirational story. >> i started off on a january weight loss journey four years ago. and this time, i succeeded, losing a total of 90 pounds. after realizing my issues with food couldn't be fixed with dieting. for me, the joy of having my first child in 2011 came with the pain of being my heaviest
8:09 am
entire life. i realized i had come to view certain food as drugs. frequently binges out of control. as i share in my book, i found the only way to get healthy was to be brutally honest about my trigger foods. all flour and dairy and then completely eliminating them as i shared with amy robach. she also realized food was her fix. >> i actually gained 35 pounds from binge eating. i didn't recognize my own body because i had never looked like that in my life. first, i think it's enjoyable, and then, eventually it's real monkey on your back. >> reporter: she sought treatment and dropped the pounds. for so many of us, treating binge eating is the real key to
8:10 am
freedom. >> if first step simply is hope and surrender. hope that's there a possibility i might change and number two, surrendering into a plan of action that involves real treatment for a real problem. >> so, how do you know if you might have a problem with binge eating? well my book does have a questionnaire in it to provide some guidance. ultimately if you think you suffer from this issue you should talk to your doctor. awareness is the first step. so often, we're told weight loss is told it's about discipline and self-control. but for so many people it's about much more than this. >> you did this once with your first baby. how's different the second time around? >> you know what's been important is habits. bad habits make life much more difficult. good habits make it easier. exercising every day, keeping up clean eating.
8:11 am
and like you, ginger, i'm hoping to have a 25-pound baby. >> easiest weight loss. >> thank you, mara. now, let's go to amy. >> all right, girls, thank you and here with some advice helping you to reframe your thinking of weight loss in the how you think about things has a huge impact. what do you mean about this? >> no question, we heard from mara, so often, it's told your willpower and discipline, that's not true. i look at things through a medical lens. we want to look good but it's really what's going on inside your body. i'm calling it the three "ps". you want to focus on your priorities, perspective and plan. if you do that and really focus on the inside-out, everything else will fall into place. >> but first "p," priority. >> priority. when you think about it as a pyramid, yes, we care about what
8:12 am
your body needs good food, good fuel, good fitness -- so you do need to move -- and you need rest. and on top of it is the mirrorball which is what everybody sees. we do have that element of vanity, yeah, if you do all these things, what see on the outside will look good. >> the next "p" is perspective. >> this is so important. because it's very easy to tend on focus just on what you're going through. but i tell patients all the time in med sin, you have to remember perspective. so, look at this animation. if you imagine you're on the weight loss road or any kind of health changes you're trying to make, you feel alone, there are tons of people on that path also, it's really a process not just about the product. so, when you realize you're not alone, i think it gives you that perspective. and it's very important. >> and finally, you got to have a plan. >> nothing works without a plan, and the body will follow the mind.
8:13 am
making these changes, set a meaningful goal. not i want to be a size whatever in my jeans. it's i want to be healthy, i want my coles to drop six, ten points. anticipate obstacles, that's real life. don't let it derail you. lastly, you want to anticipate all of those things but be patient with yourself at the same time. this truly is about your inner health. >> well said. >> thank you. >> inspiring all. thank you so much, dr. ashton. so, for so many of us this time of year is about family, friends and faith. robin sat down with pastor joel osteen to get his perspective on it all. >> all right, lara, thank you. you know it's a new year, new beginning. how can you get your year off to the best possible start. one of america's most popular preachers, dr. joel ostten is here to help us make the most of
8:14 am
presence and see you, joel. >> thank you, robin. >> okay, it's a new year, you get to start with a clean slate. don't you? >> i know. it's a great time to let go of the old. i have learned, robin, if you don't let go of the disappointments you won't receive the new things that god has in store. so i think it's the perfect time -- we all look back, you got to clean the slate and god will give you a new beginning. >> there are a lot of things going on in the world. in one of your recent messages, i appreciated you said, the economy is up you're up. when the economy is down you're down. don't let other things dictate your mood. don't be that way. >> i found that if you start off the day grateful, you find some reason to be thankful to be alive. if you start the day off right,
8:15 am
year for you. >> how often should parents talk to their children about what is going on in the world and to remain hopeful in the new year? >> yeah, i think we have to go back to explaining to kids sometimes it's hard with the shootings and the tragedies. but i think it's important to explain that god gives us all a choice. some people choose to do evil and that's not the right way. the way to overcome that is to be bright lights. we got to be good, be examples of love and kindness, not go to the negativity and the bitterness and pay people back. >> it's been wonderful to see families celebrating this season and so excited but i want to speak to those people who say, you know what, robin and joel, it's not a fun time for me. you know, i miss my family and there are some people are very low as they start the new year coming out of the season, what do you say to those people? >> one thing is important,
8:16 am
through loss, it's important to out and be a blessing to someone else. if you can call a friend, if you volunteer somewhere else, if you get outside of your yourself and not just think my problems, my loneliness, my hurt, i think that pulls you encourage someone to go out even if it's just opening a door for a stranger or baking them a pie. >> and something that you always have suggested that has really worked for me and my team, you said be concrete with what you want and put it up -- when i'm getting ready in the morning, those positive words are staring back at me. >> put up those positive affirmations around your house. i am blessed, i am strong. i am healthy. this is a good day. i'm grateful to be alive. sometimes that will remind us that every day is a gift from god. we can never get this day back,
8:17 am
so, let's make the most of it. >> it is something to see those words to actually see them and something about it takes over. >> something in the inside of you. well, that's just mind over matter. it's more than that. it's part of your faith. if you're seeing those words, hearing those phrases, i'm blessed, i'm strong, i'm creative, you start gravitating toward that way. >> in 2016, people better get ready for the suddenly. who said that? >> in one second, god can turn anything around. that's why we need hope. just one touch of god's favor. just suddenly. >> suddenly i am. i am. all right. you can tell i kind of read your books. >> thank you, robin. >> hey, joel, always a blessing to see you and especially on this day as we start a new year and have new hopes and new dreams. thank you very much. >> well, my pleasure. happy new year to you and all of the "good morning america" viewers. >> thank you, joel. thank you so much, robin.
8:18 am
ladies, the first edition of 2016, again, it's only day one of the year, it's already shaping up to be a big one for leo dicaprio, he's been nominated for a golden globe as best actor in a drama for the portrayal of a fur trapper in a revenant. buzz is building that this could finally be leonardo's year to take home his first academy award. filmmakers have revealed that despite subzero temperatures, leo would act for hours even while nearly motionless and speechless. leo said it was his hardest role of his life. the ultimate silent role. i tried to take as much dialogue out. it could be in a trend in recent oscars voting.
8:19 am
all proved to less is more. ginger, i know you're rooting very hard for leo -- >> robbed in "titanic." aviator here, he had gilbert back then. i have so many leo stories. >> he's been nominated five times for academy awards, never won. >> he's the susan lucci -- >> yes! >> when he gets it it's going to go wild. >> i think people may assume because he's so young he got plenty of time. but a great role is a great role is a great role. and looking forward to seeing that. listen up, gentlemen, why you're passed up again for that promotion, if it makes you feel any better, it may be because you're just too handsome. a study from the university of maryland here in the u.s. shows that good-looking men are more likely to be passed off for promotions by male bosses because they're seen as a threat. that's right, they're jealous.
8:20 am
road posts. but they're viewed as competent. but the bosses don't want that competition. women, on the other hand, we actually, for a change, positive news to report, we don't get paid as much but we're not as affected by looks in the work place because competency and beauty are stereotypically linked when it comes to beauty. and finally, a little fun one to start your new year. this is oliver, and this pig is very hyperactive. hyperactive hog. it's called the zoomies. i know otis never had the zoomies. >> otis never had the zoomies. >> they run in circle and they have to do things like this. it happens actually here on the

8:27 am
roots. and what i love about this is, if you don't have time to get to the salon you can actually look like you meant it, take hair gel, put it in the glitter, it's sort of a fun -- fabulous look. >> do it yourself kind of look. >> for 2016, we're going to get really fabulous. we have models here, in 2016, more natural, very sort of faded. on lizzie, really bright and bold, 2015 was about the brow. 2016 is going to be about the lips. >> so, bright lips and a bold eye, you don't usually couple the two together. >> you have to be careful, not do both too much. but, really, the jenner lip kit sold out in 30 seconds. we're going to see a lot of boldness. >> and people putting freckles
8:28 am
>> yeah. but stay out of the sun. do the fake ones. moving on to fashion, tell us what we're going to be seeing. >> in 2015, we saw a lot of cutouts in the back and in the front. we saw a lot of bold colors in dresses. we also saw platform shoes, really high things like that, we saw the mini cross body and we saw those minirings. taking the ring and wearing it in the middle. what's going to be 2016? we have briana and she's going to show us her looks. now, this x line is more about the neck. the color of the year is this rose quartz, so, it's a little bit more subdued. we've got the palm bracelet. it's fun. it's more about the hands. the flatform shoe, instead of the platform.
8:29 am
more comfortable. rihanna had that puma shoe, which, again, sold out. instead of using her t-shirt for expression, it's going to be about a handbag for expression. sort of like a popcorn or a french fry or a dog or something like that. it's just going to be about having a lot of fun with fashion. >> three lifestyle trends. >> instead of using your phone to talk to, it can customize your makeup shade, about bringing services to you through the tv or your computer. workout classes, things like that are going to be very personalized to you. and vacations are going to have a purpose, detox in terms of tech, doing something for public service, so, doing things that make you feel good and have a purpose in life. that's what we should be doing in 2016. >> i love it. thank you so much. you can get a lot more of jane's predictions for 2016 at "good morning america."com on yahoo!.
