wow such great information........ TREATL and Don...........thanks so much...


ďThere's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.Ē

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Wow! What a treatise!

Much has been made lately of recent research on how obesity will be robbing baby boomers TREMENDOUSLY as they age. The numbers are not good!

I think Mark Bittman's article is on to something:

day/24bittman.html


However judging from the hue & cry at the Daily Spark when Stepfanie referenced this article: www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?post=foo
d_
for_thought_should_we_tax_junk_food_R>subsidize_the_good_stuff
it doesn't look like an idea that will win many endorsements beyond yours truly.

There wouldn't be such epidemic obesity if it wasn't for the systemic, structural "persuasions" in the form of multi-bazillion dollar advertising industry which promises corporations such a huge return on their dollar!

But then most of you are familiar with my old rant:

Why not put those powerful advertising dollars and gov't subsidies to good use, rather than evil?
