Change a life or two or three! Move Your Assets makes a great holiday gift—and it’s a fraction of the cost of one mani-pedi!


My long-awaited book—Move Your Assets: From the Chair, Not the Bank!—made its debut last week and the positive praise is flying in (like moi entering a room)…


"This book is clever, funny, and delivers clear and really important messages. I was reading it on the airplane – which made for a flight that felt very long because all I wanted to do was get up and move my assets!" Rachel S.

"This is a very funny, yet educational book on a very serious subject. As diabetes and arthritis takes ahold of our aging (and "bigger") bodies, we are reminded by Mrs. Weiss how important it is to stay in shape – and making us get into hysterics page by page. Maybe we will get lucky and Beth will get her own TV show!!!" David

"Thanks for helping me bounce back after baby! When you have a little one you definitely need to be able to move your assets! Congratulations on the book! I've started reading it and it's so good!" Amy N.



Move Your Assets: From the Chair, Not the Bank! will inspire you to get fit and healthy beyond your wildest dreams—without ever uttering the words workout, exercise, or diet.
“Have you repeatedly indulged in the latest and greatest pill, potion, or lotion?” Bethanne asks. “You know, the one that promised to remove the umpteen kilos of junk from your trunk? Or maybe you’ve been sucked in by the Zippity Zappity Crappity Diet book and then re-gifted it to your sista-in-law last Hanukkah or Christmas. Yet admit it: You’re kvetching more than ever about your jiggles, oohs and ahhs. Then it’s time to walk with me and let’s discuss.”
With humor, science, and a little Yiddish, Bethanne proves that if you move more, you’ll kvetch less—and have far less aches, ailments and jiggly areas than non-movers have. In Bethanne’s new book you’ll read inspiring stories of dozens of women and men—some in their 70s including many you know and love—who’ve completely changed their lives and bodies simply by following the Asset Queen’s 11th commandment.

Tiny Tweaks, Big Benefits

Eyes and Girls front

Drink on head 3

OY VEY there’s a martini on my head!

Peops tell me all the time that my little tips and quips have changed their lives and need to be shared with the masses. And that’s exactly why I decided to write: Move Your Assets: From the Chair, Not the Bank! But in the meantime, you can read my blog for free 24/7. Here is one of my simple tips that will not only transform your posture and make you look taller and leaner, but will absolutely have you kvetching a lot less about chronic aches and ailments especially about your neck and back:

Move, stand, and sit as if you are balancing your drink of choice on your head; use your G-d given parts to support you and not the back of the chair or the wall you’re leaning on…I’m watching you! Eyes and girls front at all times (yes those girls). And imagine holding a fragile egg between your shoulder blades at all times.

Many peops are hunched over staring at the ground whilst trysting on the trail and I SO want to give them a verbal poch en tuchus (yiddish for smack in the assets) and set that freakin’ champagne glass on their keppes (yiddish for heads). You can unround those shoulders, lose the neck pain, and look and feel even more awesome just be keeping your eyes (and girls) front, no kidding. Take it from moi’ and the thousands of sistas (and brothas) who’ve transformed their bods just by applying my silly little posture tips to life .

Added bonus: the likelihood of you stepping in doggie or bear poop, whilst trysting on the trail, dramatically decreases if you are looking ahead and not down! Let’s get that Long Island Ice Tea in place on your keppe and move our assets together, shall we?

“My mission is NOT to make you an Olympic athlete; it is to PREVENT you from being the star of the ‘I’ve fallen and I can’t get up commercial!’ Stick with me so there will be no slow-moving motorized scooters, no grab bars installed by your toilette’, and no deprivation diets ever again… in YOUR future!”—Luv, The Asset Queen

Bethy’s Thought of the Day

Bethy Tangent:  Haven't you always noticed how “endorphin” and “morphine” both curiously have the “phin(e)” suffix? 

Bethy thought

Ok, maybe you haven't but obviously I have!

Interestingly, endorphin is a contraction of the two words “endogenous” and “morphine” intended to mean "a morphine-like substance originating from within the body." Wow!  So moving your assets can actually get you “high?”  Why would you choose to sit on your assets, which cannot possibly evoke this type of feeling, could it? No, it absolutely can't and when you read Section II of my upcoming book, Move Your Assets: From the Chair Not the Bank, you will learn why it might be scientifically impossible to ever release stress -  reducing, mood – enhancing, feel -  good chemicals if you don't move those fine young assets of yours!

Feel good chems

FYI there will be lots of “Bethy Tangents” in Move Your Assets.

It is my effort to forewarn you before I whirl off the main topic. Yes,my "all over the place" nature is reflected even in my writing. I  have so many life – changing tips and smart – asset quips to share and don't want to leave out a thing!

Urgent message from the asset queen: move your assets OR ELSE!

If you would have told me five weeks ago, when I was writhing on the floor in the most escrutiating agony I have ever experienced in my 48 years, that this would be me this week…


Bethy after surgery

…I would have said that you were meshuga!


Assets (temporarily) frozen

In fact I was ready to throw the towel in on my life's purpose of encouraging you (and me) to move our assets since mine were (temporarily) "frozen" and I saw no light at the asset moving tunnel.
Peops, have faith and patience in yourself and your body…it wants to heal…it truly does! It wants to take you on trips around the world and to shopping malls and on long walks with your "love man" and maybe even a game of tackle football with your stepson…or, maybe not!

Bethy, what is your point?

My point is you must keep your body fit and strong, so in case you do suffer an unforeseen physical or mental trauma, you are well prepared for the healing! I am living proof that after two major back sugeries just six weeks apart, you can come back strong at age 48 or older, if you don't let sarcopenia get you! You will hear a lot more about sarcopenia and disappearing assets in my next blog post as well as in my upcoming book, Move Your Assets: From the Chair Not the Bank, which I almost threw the towel in on too! OY VEY,that would not have been good since you've been hearing about this freakin' book for umpteen years!

Move Your Assets OR ELSE

 Take if from me and Isaac Newton:

"A body in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted on by an outside force"

HMMM, outside force – do you mean the ones that we actually elect to take us out of motion such as drive thrus, cars, computers, cell phones…yada yada yada! How many "forces" can you rattle off that have kept you sitting on rather than moving your assets?

If you decide to throw the towel in on your asset moving, be prepared for some seriously undesirable consequences such as not being able to move your assets, even for a simple walk, without causing injury to knees, hips, back, bones and other organs. Heed my warning now and have walks with friends instead of words with friends, or you will not be walking, let alone getting off the toilet and out of the car without difficulty, in a few years.

Bethy’s fav quote of the day

“Food is the most widely abused anti-anxiety drug in America, and exercise is the most potent yet underutilized antidepressant.” Bill Phillips

Me walking with bags


You will ready much more about "looking for a drug free way to feel less depressed" in my upcoming book, Move Your Assets: From the Chair Not the Bank! Please keep moving your assets especially through this most gluttonous, I mean most wonderful, time of the year. Even just a walk to the grocery store counts!

Bethy’s Tip of the Day: Use Sunday as the beginning of your asset-moving lifestyle!

Happy Sunday!

Before Sunday breakfast, before church (and after your morning coffee, of course) get out there and walk for 30 minutes.

Morning walk 2

Bring one or more family members and spend family time moving and talking first thing Sunday morning instead of eating greasy hash browns, (almost solid fat) sausages, or bagels (scooped out to make your feel better that you saved 30 calories but) laden with (almost solid fat) cream cheese!

Break the habit of rolling out of bed only to plop your body onto the couch or chair with a newspaper and food. Instead, move your assets first and you will be more energized, less stressed and happy the rest of the day!

Even though my assets are still (partially) frozen cuz I'm still recovering from back surgery, my walk this morning makes me feel better than any pain killer on the planet. (Added bonus: Moving my assets relieves the constipation that opiates cause…I know, TMI!)

And I must say it's so nice that Forbes magazine agrees with me! If you don't believe moi that moving your assets is the best way to start the day — not just Sunday but every day — read this from Forbes:

5 Things Super Successful People Do Before 8 AM

Check out the #1 tip…drum roll please! Asset Moving uh I mean exercise of course. You will be more creative and energized and less stressed if your begin your day on your feet, rather than on your seat. Thanks, Forbes, for agreeing with Bethy!

Morning walk 1


Bethy’s question of the day: Name that benefit

Have you ever read any profound study or scientific literature that lists the endless benefits of sitting on your assets? Probably not.

Sitting 8
Can you name any benefit you will receive if you sit for a prolonged period of time? Even one? Probably not.

Sitting 9
Grab a blank piece of paper and pen and see if you can think of any benefits that sitting on your assets for a prolonged period of time can do for your body.

Thought of any? Keep thinking…I'll wait….

Sitting 1

Bethy’s pet peeve of the day: Don’t get me started!

We are meant to move! Think about it…

When a baby takes his or her first steps, mommy and daddy are so impressed. It’s as if all we really want to do is get up and go. It’s instinctual. It’s a miracle! 

Baby walking

On the other hand, when a 40-something woman tells me with pride, “I just started walking,” it’s not such a miracle!

Woman walking
I’ll share a lot more about this pet peeve of mine in my book, Move Your Assets: From the Chair Not the Bank! Don’t get me started right now!

Bethy’s (and Picasso’s) thought of the day
