Lowering my Cholesterol

Friday, August 10, 2012

Here's how I lowered my cholesterol and also lost 16 pounds this year. Last Christmas my wife gave me a year membership to LA Fitness. I have been going 5 to 6 days a week since. One of the trainers talked about being a vegetarian and recommended the book "The China Study". That got the ball rolling and then I read several books mentioned in it on reversing heart disease. As I have had 2 heart surgeries in the last 4 years and was starting to have chest pain associated with angina I became a vegetarian and started eating as low fat as I could. Got 3 cook books on fat free cooking. Have tried to keep my fat intake under 10 gms per day. Not always possible but I came close most of the time. At almost 70, I'm even starting to show the beginnings of a 6 pack abs and my heart Dr gave me permission this week to start training for a 5K run.
I highly recommend the book "The China Study" for everyone. It has changed my life.

    Good for you, I also eat low low fat. Still need to burn the fat on my body though. Sparkling will help you do this. Yes, this RN says that heart disease can be reversed with prudent low fat diet and weight loss. Also exercise helps flush the accumulation from our arteries.
YAY for that!

Coffee Hurts

Sunday, February 19, 2012

I was eating lunch with my 6-year-old and I asked her, "What is the 20th of February?"

She said "President's Day!"

She is a smart kid, so I asked her, "What does President's Day mean?"

I was waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln etc.

She replied, "President's Day is when President Obama steps out of the
White House, and if he sees his shadow we have one more year of

You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose.

Senior citizens

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable
deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take
responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.

HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took:

The melody out of music,

The pride out of appearance,

The courtesy out of driving,

The romance out of love,

The commitment out of marriage,

The responsibility out of parenthood,

The togetherness out of the family,

The learning out of education,

The service out of patriotism,

The Golden Rule from rulers,

The nativity scene out of cities,

The civility out of behavior,

The refinement out of language,

The dedication out of employment,

The prudence out of spending,

The ambition out of achievement or God out of government and school.

And we certainly are NOT the ones who eliminated patience and tolerance from personal relationships and interactions with others!!

And, we do understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.

Just look at the Seniors with tears in their eyes and pride in their hearts as they stand at attention with their hand
over their hearts!


I'm the life of the party...... even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

I'm very good at opening childproof caps.... with a hammer.

I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

I'm smiling all the time because I can't hear a thing you're saying.

I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.

I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg.

I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN and I think I am having the time of my life!

Windex tip

Windex Tip

I haven't checked ' snopes.com ' to see if this actually works or not . . .

But they say,

If you ever get the sudden urge to run around naked,
You should sniff some Windex first.
It'll keep you from streaking.
