Your success isn't a matter of luck,
it's simply a matter of the choices you make.
Success isn't something you can wait for,
it's something you'll achieve with effort over time.
Things won't turn up in this world until you turn them up.

You can choose to be lazy or ambitious.
Stop and think about your choice again.
You always do your own choosing.

The great opportunity in your life is where you are right now.
Every situation, properly perceived, is an opportunity for you.

First, say to yourself what you would be,
then do what you have to do to make things happen.

Success is right in front of you.

Eat and Lose Weight

By Marvin Berenson, M.D.

Are you a dieter who quickly regains lost weight? If so,
then a dietary stabilization period is for you. A stabilization
period is a periodic non-diet period that occurs as part of a regular
diet. Alternating one month of dieting and one month of non-dieting
is the preferred sequence.

Have you ever wondered why it is so difficult to lose that last
ten pounds or
why you have to "eat like a bird" when you have arrived at
your ideal weight?  On a continuous diet that lasts over a month,
your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) slowly decreases. In six months
of continuous dieting you may have lost 25% or more of your normal
BMR. Weight loss and the burning of fat have diminished. A daily
reduction of five hundred calories may no longer cause any weight loss.

Dieting without benefit leads to frustration and even a sense of
hopelessness. Such negative attitudes are frequently harbingers
to regaining lost weight.  A monthly stabilization period prevents this.

When there is no decrease in your BMR, a diet with a daily reduction
of 500 calories works well. Since it takes 3500 calories to lose
(or gain) a single pound of flesh, you will lose one pound per week
or four to five pounds per month (excluding any water loss). A diet
with a 1000 calorie reduction will result in a loss of eight to
nine pounds a month. And you can expect the same results on alternate
months. The dietary control becomes easier and easier.

During the stabilization period you eat enough food to avoid further
weight gain or loss. You maintain the weight, whatever it is, reached
at the end of the diet month. You will find it easier to control weight
when your monthly weight loss is minor.  During the stabilization
period you will learn to adjust to normal eating as you develop the
habit of regular and effective weight control. You can also use the
non-diet periods to examine reasons why you overeat and focus on creating
a permanent, healthier diet and lifestyle.

By stabilizing your weight month by month you will establish an inner belief
in your ability to control your weight. You will have gained permanent weight

Twice Baked Potatoes with Broccoli

(This is a great way to get kids to eat broccoli - I've never
met a kid who did not like twice baked potatoes)

6 medium baking potatoes
1/2 cup sour cream or yogurt
3 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 cup fresh chopped broccoli
1 cup grated raw cheddar cheese

In a 400 degree oven, bake potatoes for about 50-60 minutes
or until soft. Cut a thin slice lengthwise off top of
potatoes. Scoop out pulp, leaving the shell intact. Put pulp
in bowl and mash. Add the rest of the ingredients. Refill
potato shells and top with more cheese, if desired. Bake at
425 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
