"Lose 30 pounds in 30 days!", "Eat as much as you want and still lose weight!", "Lose 10 pounds without exercise!"Have you heard these claims?  It's almost certain you have.

If you look at any magazine in your local grocery checkout line, you're bombarded with messages of instant weight loss, celebrity weight loss, and images of thin models and celebrities. I don't have to tell you that our culture is very weight obsessed. Add in the health crisis related to the obesity epidemic and the results are a society where weight discrimination is the only acceptable form discrimination.

Simple Acts of Wellness
The sun is shining, there is a coolness to the air. What a perfect day for a "wellness rant." (Feel free to stop reading right now, though I'm still friendly when I rant about wellness.)

Simple Acts of Wellness
I woke up early this morning to a quiet house. Jim gone to work already, boys still sleeping. So I got up, took a shower and sat down in the old rocking chair in my bedroom--the one I keep meaning to replace--but I rocked both boys back and forth in it for so many years, I'm not ready.

Too many people focus on weight when they should be focusing on total wellness. I will not tell you that someone who has a body fat percentage 10% or more higher then it should be is ok. I will tell you that the scale is a problem. Those who focus on the scale grow dependent on having to see the number to go down to feel successful. Reality is when you do this all you are doing is developing very bad mental habits that can and will lead to obsession and disorders. Yes, believe it or not over exercising is a sickness.

What's Your Story?
This morning, I discovered a whole new reason for exercising intensely at the beginning of your day!Have you ever seen Cesar Milan's show Dog Whisperer? He shows people how to help their dogs follow directions & be well-behaved. One of the techniques he uses for the unruly pups is to exercise the daylights out of them in order to remove all their excess energy and thus enable them to listen to obey the commands of their masters. What an ingenious idea... it really works - on people too!
