    Nel reacted to Amber in Processed Sugar   
    I am working toward this goal too. I did very good with it for several years. Then my knees started giving out and the treadmill started becoming a clothes hanger. I am back on course. I am eating clean as much as possible. Real food only....no processed stuff. I am avoiding white stuff (breads, rice, sugar, potatoes) for a more healthy choice. My cholesterol is down from 260 to 175 without medication. We need to support one another so we can carry the torch for good rock n roll to the youth in the future, lol!

    Marion---Nice. The most carbs I eat usually are brown rice, sometimes some wheat pasta and redskin potatoes. Like sugar, bread is more of an occasional treat. Giving up bread was a challenge but I feel so much better without it; again, every so often I'll have something, usually around holidays. Interesting about the yoga, I've recently begun meditating. Really really really beginner level.
     
    Amber---Sounds good! I'm sorry about your knees. Have you ever used an elliptical machine? They seem to be much easier on them. That's a pretty large drop in your cholesterol. It's incredible how much what one eats can improve health.
    cheers

    When giving up cheese was suggested to me by a wise woman I balked. Give up cheese? Give up cheesy burritos and pizza? It seemed impossible.
     Yet I did.
    Again, I'll infrequently have some pizza, or cheese with something but for the most part I gave both that and bread up. And I feel great!
     Very good wild1forever! And yes, the food cravings past faster than one would think. You probably get full on less food as well, I figure.
    Thanks for sharing!
    cheers

    Great to read all of this (although I'm sorry to read about your knees as well, Amber)!
    The Mr. and I went 95% vegan nearly three years ago because of his cholesterol issues; I joined him in solidarity. It has been a great success for him, and it's amazing to me how quickly food cravings go away. Who knew that I could give up cheese (aside from very infrequent cheat days)???

    Sad day. A true giant, one of the key influence, maker and driving genius of all of pop culture as we know it, passed away today. I guess Heaven hasn't just gained one icon of a swinging hellraiser lately (Lemmy Kilmister), but also arguably one brilliant if thin white duke. Now they are leaving one by one.. Uh..
    Sound and vision - now in the sky above. Rest in Peace Ziggy.

    Looks like another year will pass without world peace being achieved, without productive sustainable behavior among people, sanity in general and All The Rest...... :/ Is it too soon to wish all a somewhat ironic Merry Christmas?!

    Busy day at work then after, picking up my granddaughter to spend the night with me. We're going to have a picnic on the beach at sunset. Sounds nice, doesn't it? Tomorrow, swimming with both the grand kids.  Making the most of this warm weather were having!

    Nel reacted to GAM in Tom Petty Writes an Op Ed for Rolling Stone   
    I recall that he did play Rebels at the Tampa show on 9/21/14, to the crowds' wild delight!  My personal 2 cents on the matter is that it all turns on the individual viewer's perception.  As an innocent "Yankee" from Wisconsin, I was always excited to see the Confederate flag when I traveled down South; the colors and design are undeniably cool and it made me feel like I was in another land with a different culture and history.  I didn't feel any prejudice or negativity cause I didn't grow up with that flag.  But if people who grew up in the South tell me that it really does carry a lot of negatively, I certainly believe them.  Sort of like the Indian mascot debate, I guess.  Difficult stuff.

    I love that I'll be leaving for Summerfest in Milwaukee next Thursday. Friday night, Keith Urban! Haven't been back to Summerfest in years since TPATH played. That was such a great time! This time I'm going with my son and his g/f. : )
