Seniorisms by LMW – Sharing My Understanding

Time to do another inventory of myself... While I know I can never reach perfection in myself, I will not let that stop me from striving towards it... What's most important is progress, not perfection... I've been promoting healthy living, yet I allowed myself to throw caution to the winds the last couple of years & gained weight as a result... Well, this year I could see that was heading towards a place I didn't want to be... I decided, “If it's going to be, it's up to me!” & I'm doing something about it... So far I've lost 20 lbs & while that's satisfying to know I'm on the right track, I still have a way to go to get to where I want to be...

I'm not on any prescribed diet, but very seldom eat processed foods,,, I fast between my supper & breakfast... I don't eat meat except occasionally rotisserie chicken... I've cut most of the sugar out of my diet by performing a sweet-toothectomy on myself & it's working... No soda at all, seltzer instead plus I gave up coffee for tea, milk for almond milk... I treat myself once in awhile to something special instead of whenever I want it... That way it stays something special...

Having grown up when I did I was thrilled when we got our first TV, a black & white one... I firmly believe we are in such an unhealthy state is because of wanting instant gratification that has become a habit we've developed with the help of colored TV... I do believe that's when the rise of obesity & rampant diabetes became prevelent... They make the food look so enticing (makes one's mouth water just looking at it)... The same thing with our dependency for relief whenever we feel the slightest ache or pain... According to the commercials that are piped into our homes on a daily basis through TV, we're supposed to tell our doctors when we need some new drug... I have no use for Big Pharma because of the billions of dollars they spend on advertising, temporary treatments of symptoms, instead of cures for the disease... In a 60 second commercial, in the first 10 seconds we are told of all the benefits with the next 50 seconds reserved for the side effects, some even including death? Countries we rail against for having better education for their children do all they can to provide that education instead of making them go into an insane amount of debt so they can at least try to compete... What's wrong with this picture?

 Folks, I apologize for this rant, but my thoughts are, we've allowed this to happen to ourselves & now we're starting to pay the price... I agree with my Mentor, we must learn how to think for ourselves instead of being told what to think...

Think About It!

 

Signing off 'til next time this is,
