SCALES AND MIRRORS Part 11 © 1.26.03 A belated Happy New Year to you all.

So, whatContinue reading “Scales And Mirrors Part 11 ©”

3-“I ALREADY ATE”

Horrors. I had no idea. Of course I had no idea, I didn’t weigh myself. Sure my clothes were a little snug, a lot snug, but that ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’ mentality kept creeping in: the old procrastination trick so I can have today what I promise I won’t have tomorrow. THE LAST SUPPER – beforeContinue reading “3-“I ALREADY ATE””

2-FATTEN UP, EAT MORE. SLIM DOWN, EAT LESS. SIMPLE FORMULA.

INSTRUCTIONS: WEIGH SELF DAILY, so YOU know where YOU stand. BY IGNORING THE SCALE WE GIVE OURSELVES A FALSE fat meter reading, SINCE OUR EXPECTATIONS REGARDING WEIGHT ARE ALWAYS GREATER THAN THE NUMBERS PROVE. Look at self in full length mirror, nude, daily. VIGILANCE IS KEY. WHEN YOU GO TO MARKET can you guess by lookingContinue reading “2-FATTEN UP, EAT MORE. SLIM DOWN, EAT LESS. SIMPLE FORMULA.”

1-START YOUR ENGINES

START YOUR ENGINES  God, mygod, puts the needs of the individual not the group first. It only makes sense that the stronger the individual, the stronger the group. In any military, the stronger the soldier, the stronger the entire unit, thus the reason for the rigorous training. When I said a while back in aContinue reading “1-START YOUR ENGINES”

‘I’ve Got Diamonds On The Soles Of My Shoes’ ~ Paul Simon

I dared to weigh myself this morning, knowing I shouldn’t. I have a fitbit watch/bracelet that documents me and I was hoping beyond expectations that I lost something, anything. I shed my outers, carefully placed myself on the scale and came up one pound lost since my last weight date which was yesterday (Wednesday). YesterdayContinue reading “‘I’ve Got Diamonds On The Soles Of My Shoes’ ~ Paul Simon”

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) ©”

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) ©”

Two tablespoons to trim: oil that is. No more than that in any given recipe. Recipe, not serving. Why any? Because I know you won’t stick to none. I won’t either. And at times I’ll go beyond my own rule. Some oil/fat is probably good for you. It’s not because of all the reasons you’veContinue reading “Scales and Mirrors (Part 5) ©”

So you exercised yesterday and felt good afterwards. Yet today you don’t feel like it. Why, because it felt good? I thought people who overeat are pleasure seekers? Then why deny yourself the pleasure of exercise? Oh boy, here comes the whining again. Just do it. Regularly. Not once every two months. Every day. NotContinue reading “Scales And Mirrors (Part 3) ©”
