Feel Your Weight

I want to feel my weight. Being numb to it isn’t helping to reduce it. When factoring in the time and effort it takes to wake up to it and stay awake, it isn’t worth whatever short-term benefit the ‘numb to it’ provided. So each day for a while, in my mind, I will weighContinue reading “Feel Your Weight”

FAT-FREE FRIDAY

MEATLESS MONDAY just encourages people to eat other parts of the animal on the one day a week they don’t eat meat. The animal’s eggs and milk used in a variety of ways doesn’t do any more good for a person’s health than eating flesh every day. It’s not a sacrifice, since most people don’t eatContinue reading “FAT-FREE FRIDAY”

‘Widespread contamination’ found in bottled water

FFC COMMENT: Just when Coca-Cola sells its bottling business this news story comes out. I don’t doubt that bottled water is contaminated. I do take issue with only bottled water being under scrutiny here. How about all the other bottled beverages on the market? They somehow are magically decontaminated? If so, then just tell theContinue reading “‘Widespread contamination’ found in bottled water”

Collagen: ‘Fountain of Youth’ or Edible Hoax?

FFC COMMENT: Only animals contain collagen. It’s a group of proteins not found in plants – supposedly. The body is loaded with it. So if you’re on the plant train and you want more collagen, you need to eat plants that boost collagen production. I don’t know if these do actually boost collagen production, butContinue reading “Collagen: ‘Fountain of Youth’ or Edible Hoax?”

Discipline Leads

We tend to think discipline is doing something we don’t feel much like doing, but we suck it up and do it anyway, because it’s good for us or somebody or something else. Quite the contrary. True discipline is finding that which we enjoy doing and then doing it. Suffering is not a by-product ofContinue reading “Discipline Leads”

IT’S TIME…

It’s time to get serious. Not that I haven’t been serious in my flight around the globe feeling out the terrain of weight gain and what causes it, besides over-eating. It’s just that I haven’t been serious about me actually losing the excess weight on my bones. I could have just eaten plain steamed veggiesContinue reading “IT’S TIME…”

Scales And Mirrors (part 7) ©

I wanted to move mountains not become one. Gluttony is the only sin you can’t hide. It’s right out there, staring everybody in the face. A sin isn’t just an offense against someone else or something else, it’s every bit as much a sin against one’s self. If you can’t control your gluttony, then you’re aContinue reading “Scales And Mirrors (part 7) ©”

Scales And Mirrors (part 6) ©

Being skinny isn’t the answer. Young girls who want to stay skinny aren’t prepared for womanhood. They want to keep their prepubescent figures, not ready to accept the challenges and responsibilities of adulthood. Guys who require that of women, want children for girlfriends and spouses, not adults. Forcing women to stay children is common toContinue reading “Scales And Mirrors (part 6) ©”
