Goodbye Bubblebaths, Throwing the Scale Out, and Other Misc.
Thursday, May 11, 2017      13 comments

At the beginning of the year, I had what I thought was a rare (for me) yeast infection. However, after doing all of the "right" things to get rid of it, and it stubbornly persisted, I started to eliminate the variables in the equation. Turns o... Read more
"Comparison is the Thief of Joy"
Monday, May 08, 2017      14 comments

I heard someone repeat this famous quote (not sure who originally said it) while talking about how social media has made people become more and more apt to compare their life against those who are perceived to be more happy, thinner, wealthier, ... Read more
Fruit Sugar - My New Sugar Dilemma
Thursday, May 04, 2017      13 comments

I've been off sugar for about two months now. However, here come cherries and watermelon in the stores. In abundance. And I am "addicted" to both. I'm trying to research whether fruit sugar is horrible for me. Or does it mean the end of my ... Read more
The Funniest Fruit I've Ever Seen
Friday, April 28, 2017      15 comments

Yesterday I drove past an Asian market; at first I thought, "wow, those are really big watermelons." And then I almost came to a stop and did a double and triple take. They were huge and green like watermelons, but covered in nodule-like thin... Read more
Exploding FB? Unicorn Drink. Muddy Jeans.
Tuesday, April 25, 2017      11 comments

Yesterday I heard a report that a woman's FB exploded on her wrist and caused burns. Concerned about the safety factor, I researched. Fortunately, this is an exception. Not many FB's do that. They think she may have over-charged it, which th... Read more

Sunday, April 23, 2017      50 comments

After writing yesterday's blog about all of the compliments I was getting, I realized that although they are wonderful feedback, they can really hurt my progress. Why? Well, folks were saying that I looked slimmer and trimmer. And I under... Read more
NSV's Galore, Kumato Review, Study on Frequent Meals
Saturday, April 22, 2017      11 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
Going to Try a Kumato (Product of Canada)
Thursday, April 20, 2017      13 comments

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
"If You Can't Eat It, Don't Put in On Your Skin"
Tuesday, April 18, 2017      13 comments

This was the advice from a health expert I heard on the radio the other day. He was talking about how most people don't realize that the skin is the body's largest organ. And that everything you put on it (and most are full of chemicals) go di... Read more
The Gut - Our Second Brain (documentary)
Monday, April 17, 2017      8 comments

Wow! I never knew this much about my gut! What a film! We have an entire ecosystem within our bodies. More bacteria than stars in the universe. 95 percent of our serotonin is in the gut. I have new-found respect for this part of my body. ... Read more

That Sugar Film (documentary)
Saturday, April 15, 2017      6 comments

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
My Big Fat Body (documentary)
Friday, April 14, 2017      9 comments

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
