Weight Loss

Weight  loss …. Have you noticed just how many adverts  there are about weight loss  ? They are on  TV, in magazines , on line, almost everywhere you  look there they are all of them saying the same thing over and over again , each saying the same things but in a subtly different way . The  main theme is exactly the same no matter what company they are  it all boils down to 1 thing , they are still all saying the same thing , so it is only cost that people decide which way they are going to go with it . Weight loss these days is a multi million dollar industry and no matter how much they say to the contrary  it is the money side that drives them ,and makes them make adverts that are so in your face that it really is dreadful. Some of the adverts are just so bad it makes you wonder if they think everyone is just stupid  or that they cannot see what is really going on , like they want your money that is all that matters and I don’t think everyone wants to look like a match with the wood scraped off now do they ?

What all these huge companies do not do is look at people as individuals , they  just treat everyone  the same , as sheep to be led to what they want them to do, not a thought about anyone else, as  I have said before in other blogs money is all anyone wants these days . Really why would they take the time to check things out properly ? Check into the actual ingredients of all this stuff they say you ” must have ” to lose weight , and  everyone must lose weight according to them. What does it matter to them if what they are selling has harmful chemicals in it? They are getting paid to sell it and if they sell it they get money  end of story, no matter if it is drinks, energy drinks, special foods, special biscuits , it is all the same , read the labels  and give yourself a heart attack. Another thing they do not take any notice of is conditions of the people who they want to use it , who they want to sell it to nothing matter but the money.

Makes you wonder if they even bother to think  , lol, not a hope but still , do they ever stop judging the people ? Looking at them and seeing them overweight as they think  they are and just judge them ,thinking right away they eat too much they do nothing every day . Way too many times they are 100% wrong in that the people they are judging are not that way because they want to be , they are that way because  of varying reasons  and quite often it has nothing to do with how much they eat or drink or how much exercise they get . In a lot of cases it is medication they are on that does that to them  or it is hereditary and that 1 trust me is very hard to fix, if all your family are overweight  then chances are you will be too no matter what you do . Amazing too is that a lot of people , and no not just women have fluid retention  and no matter how hard they work on it , they cannot shift it , it has to be 1 of the hardest conditions to regulate , it can be done but is very , very hard to correct and not something you can do alone as I found out to my cost .

Also there are so many who have other conditions that make them overweight  and there is nothing they can do , as if the medication they are on  that causes the overweight  is stopped they that may be catastrophic  to them and may kill them. Some medications are like that they fix 1 thing but cause a heap of other things  , the side effects can be terrible but what can you do  ? If you need them you need them really. Reading labels and checking side effects  has become something  I do all the time now  and yes it does take up a lot of time but if  I don’t I could be in a lot of trouble , and trust me just being married is trouble enough  thank you very much.  Who needs anymore trouble  than that  ? Only someone who is bored  I think  lol , so reading labels and checking things is to me a very important thing to do .

Along with the you eat all the wrong things mentality  that they have they also do not realise that some people just cannot do all the exercise that they think they should be doing. Not for a single minute do they examine the circumstances of   all the people they have judged so they have no idea that some may have disabilities or injuries or some other reason they just cannot do all the super exercises , but do they do anything to help these people who usually do want to help themselves ? No they don’t they are too busy judging  so nothing gets done and someone who really wants to lose weight but cannot without  real help  gets none at all and stays the same . They are all so focused on the money part of it that the real reason they should be in the industry they are in gets lost in all the hype  and nothing ever gets done for real people  in a way that really helps them . Most of all this ” help ” be it at a gym or in all these fancy drinks and foods  are all way too expensive for the average  person , they are all so overpriced  it is unreal yet they still sit back and judge , humanity is at a very low level right now. I live in hope that 1 day someday someone will start to care and change things for us all.

 

Has anyone lost their marbles? I just found some while looking for mine.

I’m going to stop putting things off, starting tomorrow! <—- For you dear lol.

One Of The Best Things I Ever Bought

One of the best things  I ever bought ….. what is the best thing you ever bought  ? There must be at least  1 thing that stands out above all the others  ? That 1 thing that you use and use and use as much as you can ? There is always 1 thing out of all the things we buy  that we constantly use and use  , and quite often more than 1 thing , things that as soon as you get them they go into use right then . Right before you say refrigerator , stove, washing machine  and things like that or a freezer  those are not favourites  they are essentials  so do not count in the area of  things you just like to use as much as possible .They are the types of things that we must have so I do not count them in this article .

While you think of how many things you have bought , think about  all of them , what are they used for and how many times you use them , then work out what ones  you do use over and over again not because you have to but because you just like using it . Things that really give you enjoyment  to use because they give you the greatest  pleasure , as the use of them gives a lot of benefits  and not just 1 thing . I know I have a few that  I class as being pleasurable to use  as using them gives multiple benefits , I will get to them in a few minutes  but in thinking of them , if you do  stop and think you realise there are a few  , and that a lot of what you do have  are things you only use now and again  but you do still use them so you keep them thus cluttering up the cupboards . Rather than go through everything  to see what you really could do without you keep them for  ” Justin ”  meaning  justin case  I need them again  I will leave them clogging up the place .

What are my ” best things ” ?  The first 1 would be without doubt would be my slow cooker , I can make so many things in that , that you just can’t count all kinds of things from roasts to casseroles, to sweets, to stir fry , the list is endless and mine is constantly in use . With it  I can  take a small amount of meat and add veg. etc to it and end up with a cooker full which then makes  a meal for right now  with at least another 4 to be put in the freezer , so 1 cook becomes a minimum  of 5 meals . This also is very economical in this day and age when we need to make things go further . Another thing would have to be the kettle , lol, as we need our coffee in the mornings to wake up  and during the day for other drinks as well so it is rarely out of use . Another  would be the microwave  I know I said before not stoves but  this is an addition  to the stoves  and also can be used day and night and get things cooked or warmed up or  defrosted in a quick time.

Must also add right here too that 1 thing we do use a lot but is only used during winter but is still used  for pleasure , I mean an electric blanket  of course when it gets that cold , with my back the way it is  I sure do need  and the lovely heat it gives of a night is just great for helping me settle and hopefully sleep. Heaters  too are something  that we only use once a year but also make us feel good  when it gets cold each year . I guess too really we must add our computers and our televisions  as some of us who cannot go out very much  need something to help us stay up to date  with the world and also to entertain us . When we sit and think about all the things we own how many of them  do we use over and over makes us think  how did we ever manage without them ? Yet we  did  but how would we manage now  I wonder  ? Could we do all the things we do now and get the same satisfaction  and the same good results if we suddenly did not have them ?

Thinking about it  we really do have a lot of things , things we cling to , things we say we cannot do without   but I am wondering   if it came to it  how would we go ? how good would we be if we did not have all these things  we rely on so much ? Well 1 thing for sure we would sure have to use what passes  for brains  to get on wouldn’t we  ? We would have to go back to the inventive part of what people used to be , the part that  kept us alive and firing on all cylinders , it worked for us before  so we would have to make it work for us again, if we wanted to keep living that is  lol .  Might be hard but I am sure we could do it if we wanted to or should I say needed to , if we did not we would be in deep crap so as they say , ” Use it or lose it ”  and we do not want that do we . ?  It s a pity really that things have become so important to us that we value them sometimes above people  and do not try to tell me that some people don’t do this , it is a sad reflection on our society  but it is the way it is.

If work is so terrific, how come they pay you to do it?

Today I discovered that two wrongs definitely don’t make a right! Tomorrow I’m going to try three. 🙂

All Aboard

All Aboard …. the  I don’t care bus , as long as it doesn’t  affect me , as  long as  I don’t have to do anything , move anything , pay for anything, help anyone , etc etc etc , as long as  I am ok Jack then  do not bother me  . Have you ever taken the time to notice just how many people get outraged by what is going on in the world  but never do a single thing to try and stop anything? They will be the first and the loudest  to go off their trolleys  but do they actually ever do anything  about anything  ?    Comes back to that old saying  NIMBY or not in my backyard  , do what you like to whoever you like  just do not do it near me or mine or anyone I care about , that way I do not have to be bothered.

All Aboard  the I want this changed and that changed and  I want this benefit or that benefit  but  I do not want to have to actually get up and do anything myself , oh no that would be too much work and bother by far if  I had to actually help. I want this freedom and that freedom but  do not expect me to actually help to get it sorted  that would be too much of my time wasted and that is not on . I will do 1 thing though  I will go out and demonstrate and riot and abuse all and sundry  but  I will never do anything  to actually put things right , I mean come  on me? Do anything ? Not a hope I am just there to be as much of a pest as possible while expecting the best from everyone else . Why would  I bother to help when by all my protesting and abusing and violence  I can get what I want quicker  and get the best while the really deserving people just get pushed aside  .

All aboard  the let’s just  blame all politicians  and slam them for what they might be trying to do , trying to do with no help at all from those that should help . Before you all say but what good are politicians  anyway , all they do is line their own pockets and bugger everyone else , that is true to a very large degree  but there are a few that  do actually care and do try to help . As with all  ” jobs ”  for want of a better word they  have their detractors  and those within that have their own agendas  make it very hard indeed for those who really do want to fix this  huge problem the world has now with  being overrun  by refugees , some who are genuine  but too many now are not they steal onto the boats and planes etc along with the real ones  and that causes so much trouble   for anyone trying to do the right thing . The politicians who do try to do the right thing usually get vilified  , shouted down , called everything under the sun but never helped so that is why we have such a huge problem  and there is hardly a country left in the world who does not have this problem.

All Aboard the outrage bus when because of all the lack of help nothing gets done that should be done  so people who are really deserving of help do not get it . People are so busy protesting and demanding that they themselves want this and that  and that they should get it first  that they block  the help that they are screaming out for .It never ceases to amaze me how many people are like that , they do not stop to think that they themselves are the biggest part of why they are not getting what they are screaming for  but as to how you wake them up I have no idea what ever . That would be the answer to the million dollar question I think  but boy would it help if someone had the answer  and no before you say it  more violence is not the answer either , there must be some sort of compromise  I would think. but good luck finding it .

All Aboard the let us  teach our children that  all that matters in life is me, me, me , and if anyone gets in the way of that then it’s all ok to protest and even get violent  if need be . Let us not teach our children to care for others or that it is better to be nice than to be angry all the time , let us also not bother to teach them that to get on with people and be caring and sharing is a way better way to get things done , that you get more done like that than by all the other methods  at all , no one ever says   you do not need to be upset to get things done , you can achieve much more by being reasonable .

All Aboard the how did we get to this stage bus .. how did we  ? We did by being lenient , by not teaching our children respect , I am almost sure that if you asked the modern child these  days  what respect was they would have no clue having been brought up in the if  I want it then  I will get it  society so what I want is all that matters. If we had taken the time to tell the governments of the world that no we will not let you tell us how to raise our children  and kept on teaching them respect  we would not now have such a class of people  who think of themselves as ” privileged ” and expect what they want when they want it . A lot of us said way back when all this happened that it would be the worst thing to happen and boy have we been proved right , though we so wish we were not , that we had been the wrong ones.

All Aboard …the very next bus no matter what it is as we now seem to be a world of let us jump on the bus with whoever  no matter what they are on about , do not bother to check out if it is right or wrong just jump on the bus and lets go . …

 

If today is tomorrow and tomorrow is yesterday and yesterday is Monday and Monday is today what day is it? Did i confuse you  

I wonder if people wonder what I wonder, because I wonder what people wonder. Do YOU wonder what I wonder? Now THAT is what I wonder. I wonder what you’re wondering as you wonder what I wonder, if of course you’re even wondering what I’m wondering…
I wonder..

The More We Stay Together

The more we stay together  ….. The more we really do know what the other is thinking and yes that old saying ” complete each other’s sentences ”  lol it really does happen and we do it to each other all the time , which is good coz it saves energy  , that’s my story and  I’m sticking to it  lol. We have  been doing this sentence thing for years now and you know sometimes  I don’t think we even notice we are doing it  it has become so much a part of us now , part of who we are as a couple  really . Have no idea at all how long we had been together before this started happening  but I’m guessing it was a fair  while , it would take a while for something like that to start to penetrate our everyday  life like that , these things do not start quickly they happen over a period of time .

The more we stay together too the more we know what each other needs or likes in just about everything we do in a day , like we might be in need of a coffee but for some reason just cant do it right then but the other seems to sense it and goes and gets coffee , this happens all the time with  us . Also after a busy day we might want a drink and just time to relax or to have a snack to go with the drink and it is just there 1 or the other just knows and goes and gets it , again this is something we always do for each other . cannot count the amount of times we have just gone and done something or got something that we needed and just seemed to know the other 1 would love it too so do it for 2 , again this is just what we do and have been for years now.

The more we stay together the more we also know if the other 1 is sick or hurt , even though they might try to hide it so as not to worry the other , we always seem to know they need some extra help and just do it  because we have been together so long and because the love we have for each other is still as fresh as it ever was . Again I cannot count the amount of times  I have needed help because of my back problems etc. and most of the time  I do not even need to ask , as the help is there just when  I need it most and  I always try to be there for him  just when he needs it too . This is something we have just done for each other from day 1 but the more we stay together the easier it is to know what the other 1 needs and also when they need it , it just works for us and does so more and more as time goes on .

We have made people laugh on so many occasions because we tease each other all the time no matter where we are and lol I suspect they wonder what is going on . What is going on is that because we have been together so long we know how each other thinks and how they will react  to any given situation  so when something happens , or someone says something  we might either tease each other  or just crack up laughing for what seems to be no apparent reason . Just having that happen on occasion makes us laugh too and that to me is a good thing as there is not enough laughter in the world  so the more the merrier as far as we are concerned .This special kind of idiocy also takes a while to get into your everyday life and it slowly crept into ours and it keeps  us happy and laughing more than not and that is a good thing.

Writing this makes me realise just how nuts we must be , and you know what ? I do not care 1 little bit , it is what we are , what we have become with each other and long may it continue . The day it all started  to me now was 1 of the best days in my life , that day started with a stalker and after a lot of fun, hardship, trouble, travelling , being stupid, lol had to put that in and now keeps going from day to day with us both being so in tune with each other that  often we can just look at each other and crack up because we both thought of something funny right at that moment and yes it will be the exact same thing  as we do that too all the time to each other . I hope that this kind of idiocy between 2 people who love each other so much can just keep going on coz we love it , it makes life much less boring for us and relieves a lot of stress.

The more we stay together also means that knowing someone else this well makes it easier for planning anything , even what to watch on  TV or what to have for dinner or even where to go on the occasion we go out for dinner etc. The other added benefit is that if we get a chance to travel again we both pretty much want to go to the same places so planning a trip is no trouble at all , in fact it makes it downright easy for us. All I hope for now for us is that it keeps on keeping on and keeps us happy  to continue to be together  and to keep on being idiots with each other  as it is way more fun , who wants to be sane anyway ? That is too boring  lol , no fun at all and should only be used when absolutely necessary , any other time is just irrelevant .

So there you have it 2 idiots , who love being idiots , do it all the time and are happy , and so the more we stay together the better …so there  …lol.

I would be unstoppable – if only I could get going!

I’m confused… Don’t ask me why, I don’t know 😗😙😚. That’s why I’m confused.
