I have always been blessed with a rapid reading speed. And, way back when, I even tried to take an Evelyn Woods speed reading class. You know, back then, they guaranteed your money back if they didn’t improve your speed. Which meant- the three times I tried to take the course- that they kicked me out after 15 minutes. They had no desire to provide me any “free pointers”.
What do we do when we just can’t lose weight?
No, don’t tell me we’re not trying hard enough. Some folks have fallen into the black hole of (no) weight loss- metabolic syndrome. I know that sounds like gobbledygook- and to some degree it is. Because it is not an illness per se, but a combination of risk factors that mean the subject is not losing weight, can succumb to heart disease, and/or diabetes.
I was worried a while ago. While one of my friend was talking with us (we were sitting around a table at St. Elmo’s for our morning discussion), I noticed his hands were trembling. I thought he had more than enough coffee- or, worse, he was developing Parkinson’s Disease.
I have always loved temperatures that breached the lower end of what most would consider comfortable. It’s one of the reasons why living in Cambridge (MA) and Ann Arbor (MI) was a pleasure for me. And, maybe this would be a great time to remind you (in case you forgot) that I don’t own a winter coat. Oh, wait. I don’t own any coats. I simply don’t wear any. Because it’s really never been too cold to need such an outfit.
