Mystical, Mythical Tomorrow

Tomorrow: a land where diets and exercise will begin.

There is another side to tomorrow. While we hear a lot of the wonderful things people will do when it comes, there seems to be a bit of anxiety about it as well.  The same tomorrow that holds the promise of a new beginning also holds the threat of a new problem.

The Amplified Bible says it this way: "So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble." Matthew 6:34

In other words, leave tomorrow, with all of its positives and negatives, alone. It is a box with problems in it. You have enough problems in the box called today to deal with. Fortunately you also have the tools and resources to fix them. Don't trouble trouble until it troubles you.

The Best Active Ingredient in Diet Products is... YOU!

There was a diet pill that was guaranteed to work if you followed the directions. The directions included drinking a large glass of water 30 min before each meal. The diet worked great. The only problem was, the diet worked just as well without the pill.

The only really effective active ingredient in any diet is you. If you will do the work, your diet will work. If you don't, it won't.

Enough Embarrassment for Everyone.

It's not only the patient that gets embarrassed when recounting their symptoms. Be careful when asking others about their physical ailments. If they aren't embarrassed sharing the details of their condition, you might be embarrasses in hearing them.

Natural Pairings.

You are free to walk any path and follow any desire but you cannot choose what is at the end of the path you travel. If you want a different end, walk a different path.

Maybe it's Not the Shirt...

A woman put her cat on a diet.When asked how that diet was going, she sent this picture. 

Moral: The sad truth is, clothes don't make you look fat, your fat makes the clothes look fat.

Shamed onto the Stairway

In Barcelona , Spain they tell it like it is: Skinny people take the stairs. That's how the skinny stay skinny. If you are fat, well, it's because you aren't the kind of person that uses stairs.

Want to change? If you want to look like skinny people look, then change your direction and do the things that skinny people do.

When Your Food Lies To You...

Don't believe everything they put in the advertisement, print on the box or mark on your food.  As Mark Twain once said "You may die from a misprint."

Sad Dieters Shut Up

It can be tiresome to hear the excuses people create to justify their failures.
Find a way to be happy doing what is right instead of an excuse for doing what is wrong.

Gaming the Lab

When Lab Results Become More Important Than Your Actual Health

Fixation on getting good numbers drive people to "game" the lab results. But it isn't the numbers that are important. It is your actual health that is. If all you want is good lab results, then Photoshop may be for you.

When this Argument Wins You, You Lose

 A compelling argument. But please consider the following translation 
of this sign:"Diabetes & obesity vs No Diabetes & obesity"

A Dangerous Time, More for Some than Others

A dangerous time of life for 

older ladies and chickens.
