I’m a diet expert. No, really. I lived with an obese person for nearly 20 years and we experienced every diet known to man. My wife was between 50 to 150 pounds overweight during that timeframe. Though I can’t possibly remember all of them, I know she tried Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Slimfast, the Grapefruit diet, the Egg diet, the Zone, Adkins, and other carb-less plans. With varying degrees of success, she lost between 10 and 65 pounds with each diet over the two decades of attempts, gaining back all of the losses and then some. During that time, I finally learned why they all failed, which I will now share.

I had a few tongue mishaps because Singapore Post has been releasing a lot of sticker stamps for presumed convenience. But please Post-Boys, they do not taste half as good as the normal ones. Of course I have to be practical. I use my emails and I send online messages.
An ingenious device I bought to turn the taps on our former gas range is now in the twentieth year of its Daily Scanner in the studio. I use it to turn dials of mechanical items such as the timer on my workbench and the dashboard of my studio air-conditioner.
Also, psychically project yourself into your near future. See yourself going through the security line with joy and ease. Visualize yourself getting to your gate on time. I like to affirm I’m always on time. That statement lets the universe coordinate things like airplane delays, so I still am on time.
Given the debate within the healthcare community, it is unethical to force or pressure Americans to be x-rayed until more is known. It is senseless to expose Americans to one danger while protecting them from another.
