NSV's Galore, Kumato Review, Study on Frequent Meals
Saturday, April 22, 2017      9 comments

Today has been full of compliments. People are telling me how I look slim and trim. I haven't been near the scale in months. But I've done great with sugar and less cheese, so maybe that is paying off? I wrote in my last blog about buy... Read more

I did a double-take at the package of what looked like tomatoes at the store. Only, these were dark brown. Were they rotten, I wondered. Nope, the label says they are grown that way and not a result of GMO. Will be trying them soon. As soon... Read more

This should be mandatory viewing in schools. I wish I'd seen this in high school; my food choices would have been remarkably different. This Australian guy was sugar-free for three years, and decided to do this experiment on film for 60 da... Read more

This film was about the comedian Frank Payne who volunteered to visit a variety of scientific places to have his obese body analyzed. It showed how his body was biologically affected by fat. I think this was filmed in 2009 and he was about... Read more
Facing the Fat (documentary)
Thursday, April 13, 2017      9 comments

This is an amateur film done in 2010 by a 32- year- old male who wanted to lose weight by drinking only water for 40 days. Not a very good film, but I always find it interesting what we humans do out of desperation. Of course, weight loss was... Read more

Wednesday, April 05, 2017      12 comments

I have been saying that I just don't like yoga. Well, I'm going to give it another chance or two before I cross it off my list. Honestly, I was pretty discouraged by my exhaustion from Monday's Qi Gong because I thought it was supposed to ... Read more

First of all, I am not even a donut person; so this makes no sense at all. Didn't dream of donuts either. This morning at 5, I went to get gas. I love doing errands very early when everyone else is asleep. I've always liked the quiet of ... Read more

I tried a couple of classes awhile ago, and then couldn't find them anymore. Just noticed they are back on the schedule and am heading out later this morning. I've tried Tai Chi and Yoga, but really don't connect with those activities. So I'l... Read more
