BREAKING NEWS: My 1st ebook..Coming Soon, Also Fit And Fitness Tips

Red and yellow, black or white...we are precious in His sight...and the one thing most of us really have in common...is that most of us think we're FAT.  I'm only about 20 pounds overweight and there are days when I feel like a full grown Granddaddy MOOSE!  I can eat just a few potato chips and my face looks like somebody stuffed it with a bag of MARSHMALLOWS..for goodness sakes.

I've got some GRAND news for you before we go our separate ways...but we're going to start off with a little information on the Sensa sprinkles or whatever you want to call them.  I'm getting emails wanting to know if I recommend Sensa and if I've tried it.  And just what diet supplement or pill or program I DO recommend. 

So let me start off by saying..."I" don't personally recommend ANY diet supplement...and I don't care how natural they say they are...if they make you lose weight...something is awry in Denmark..because let's just face it..losing weight without really working at it..just isn't natural.  You have to suffer and starve and leave off a lot of the foods you really would rather have...for foods you wouldn't be crazy about feeding to your hogs...but if we want to lose weight..we gotta do what we've gotta do...

I didn't really know much about Sensa except that it sounded like a bunch of hooey to ME...So after several emails, I decided to investigate it and see just what in the dickens is IN Sensa.  I found that it contains Maltodextrin and Tricalcium Phosphate and Silica...now those all sound like fairly safe ingredients and those are ALL the ingredients that were listed on the 2 websites I checked...but you let me tell YOU something...those 3 things WILL NOT make you lose weight..so Sensa is just another example of not putting all the ingredients on the label like companies are supposed to do...OR it's just a bunch of hooey and doesn't help you at all...

They say the average weight loss with Sensa is 30.5 pounds in 6 months and the before and after pics were amazing...but they also said the people that lost this weight in these pictures added a sensible diet and exercise to their program.
But listen.. if we'd add a sensible diet and exercise program to OUR daily lives...we'd be losing 30.5 pounds in 6 months ANYWAY...and we could take that extra money THEY are spending on Sensa and go buy us a few good garden books or something...
It said on the websites 'no pills...no stimulants...no diuretics' and that it works with our sense of smell to help us feel more full....Now let me just ask you....HOW is your sense of SMELL going to let you feel more full?

Dr Patel has actually suggested the Alli to me...He says that no more than I have to lose I could lose it in no time...and he says it's safe...But we lost a close friend just a few years ago because she used a 'supposedly safe' diet supplement and it's just not worth taking the chance to ME...The side effects of Alli....now just pay attention here...the side effects of Alli according to their website are "digestive and bowel problems until your body adjusts to the Alli and you may experience loose stools and urgent needs to go NOW.  It went so far on their website as to suggest you wear dark pants and carry an extra change of underclothes and slacks......WHAT????????   I DON'T THINK SOOOOOOOOOOOOO ...Can't you just see me at the piano at church and in the middle of..."Let Others See Jesus In You"....and I have to start waving my hand and say "HANG ON....I TOOK SENSA TO LOSE 3 POUNDS AND I HAVE TO RUN TO POTTY...just hum for a minute"    ggggggggrrrrrrrrr HOW RIDICULOUS...that they would even say that's a possibility....

The only thing "I" would suggest to lose weight is to add a B Complex vitamin...and we all need the b vitamins anyway...we just don't get enough b's in our diet.  And B Complex will help to keep your sugar level so you don't crave junk foods....and the B6 in there is a mild diuretic..but it IS natural...and we need it anyway.  B Complex helps with digestion and keeps our metabolism on track..it also helps to break down carbs and fats and it boosts our energy completely naturally...AND I recommend the Twin Labs Vitamin B Complex because it's the easiest to digest....and it's in most health food stores and can be bought online and on amazon...

Well I REALLY NEED AND WANT to lose 20 pounds...but I just need to back WAY off on the carbs...have more lean protein...drink more water and WALK, WALK, WALK...

And NOW...for the big news  :-)

For years I put out my own little newsletter...and I've told about it before...and I called it "The Encourager" then later went on to call it "The Encourager's Club" and I'd invite folks to join the club for free...there would never be any cost to join my club and all we'd be doing as members was taking 2 or 3 little Encourager's when we'd see them out and about and read one ourselves to lift US up...and the other 2 or 3 would be to give to someone else that WE wanted to lift up.

Those little papers were SO SO popular...and I'd copy 300 or so and put them around in stores and doctors offices and the hospital waiting room and in just 24 hours they'd be gone...and I've even had businesses call me and say "You know those little papers you brought in...I have someone wanting to know if they can buy 20 of them"  :-)  I'd say "I don't sell them...but they can sure have 20 of them to give away....I'm not in a business, I'm on a mission  :-)  And I'd take them more Encouragers. 

One day I was copying my Encouragers at the Office Depot in Paducah and a man was standing behind me and I could tell he was trying to look over my shoulder and around me and finally I said, "Can I help you?"  He said "I was just trying to see what those little paper books are...they're so different and just getting a glimpse of them...makes me want to see more"  So I said, "Well that's not a problem...this is a little personal newsletter that I've published for years and I just give them away...so you can have one for you and a few for YOU to give away"
He stood there and looked at them as I continued to copy them...and then he said "Do you mind if "I" make copies of these with my own church information on them and take them to MY church to give away?"  I said "Well actually a copyright is pending...so I can't hardly do that..what church do you go to?"  He said "Heartland Worship Center,"  :-0 AND THAT WAS A LIE, WHAT I SAID TO HIM...LORD FORGIVE ME...OH MY GOODNESS...I HAD LIED TO A PERSON FROM HEARTLAND BAPTIST CHURCH...one of the BIGGEST CHURCHES in this part of the 4 state area....OH my GOODNESS...ggggggeeeeezzzzzzz  But he had panicked me...

Soooooooooooo I left there and went straight to Kevin's office (our oldest son).  He had been trying to get me to copyright my Encouragers for years because they WERE so different and popular and uplifting...and I said "QUICK...WHERE'S THAT PAPER YOU'VE BEEN WANTING ME TO FILL OUT AND SEND IN TO COPYRIGHT THESE?"  He helped me fill out my paper...I wrote a check and stuck it in his envelope and it was off....soooo they are NOW copyrighted...since 2006...  :-)
  
Good news IS....they are going to be made into my first ebook and will be available on amazon soon...so an extended version of my "Encourager" is 'coming soon' for just $2.99 to amazon and other places.   It's going to make the best little inexpensive gift you will ever give or add to a gift bag  :-) You will have 3 choices, you can just file it on your computer to read when you want..or you can print it off just like sheets of paper to have handy when you want..OR AND THIS IS THE BEST PART...there will be a printable gift version..so you can print off each page and fold the pages to make a really neat little gift book.  We have gone all out on this little book so it CAN be used as a really neat little gift to tuck in a gift bag for pennies..complete with the very unique little pictures that are in ALL of my Encouragers and the works.  Details coming soon...WE ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!

It really is true...the Lord works in mysterious ways...I am sooooooooooooooo blessed.

Peace and love from the canyon and thanks so much for stopping by.  This has been a bird's eye view of the katydid and until next time...you are loved

Another mustard seed miracle in the works...
