Not Another Article About Weight Loss!

If you are looking for a way how lose weight fast and healthy try natural methods first like drinking more water to flush fat and toxins out of your bodily system.  Then, after that fails (because it seems like it is not working), you can look at how lose weight fast by jogging in the heat in North Carolina but you have to wait until your skin is wet with sweat to start.  After you end up short of breath and someone calls the ambulance after you pass out thanks to heat stroke, think about how to lose weight fast and easy while you are lying in the back of the ambulance meditating about why you ended up there to begin with. 

How many inches?
Meditating about this subject might help, if you are still able to think and pray.  How lose weight fast put me in the hospital” might be the next thing you think about while enjoying a ride, flat on your back.  The hospital is a great place for sick people to get healthy, and many doctors and nurses work there.  If you ask one or more of the people who work in the hospital how to lose weight fast and easy, you will get a variety of answers.  It might make a boring day more interesting, but some of the hospital staff are fat – so what good is talking to them, one might think.  This is a case of being educated and not using one’s own advice, which often happens.  After all of this, the concluding sentence to the question of How to lose weight fast and easy” is that there is no really fast, easy way to lose a lot of weight unless the person gets involved with not eating for days, weeks, and keeps drinking water and other fluids, so as not to wither away totally, or has organs removed from their body including blood, to weight a great deal less immediately.  This is absurd, but people have done all kinds of strange things in an effort to lose weight including getting colostomies, using dangerous drugs, dangerous laxatives, and other weird methods because they do not value the ‘person’ they are and are obsessed with wanting to look a certain way to have value.  People who are interested in losing weight really, really fast to qualify for something do not realize that the thing may not be worth it after all. 

Did we meet out weight loss goals YET???
I have heard of people in the acting, theatre, or modeling  areas who needed to lose weight quickly to be selected for a certain theatrical role or part become bizarre – because they are involved in the ‘looking good and pretending business’ but not necessarily the business of ‘common sense’, ‘logic’, or ‘reason’.   Alcoholics, particularly alcoholics in recovery from alcoholism will tell you that ‘while drunk’ and disordered this or that occurred which affected them later and which they felt sorry about or sad about after the fact.  In certain cases – it was too late.   Weight loss takes a long time and is really a problem for people who are obsessed with weight loss alone.  Probably more important is the process of change, or going through other internal or ‘thinking’ changes.    The third, fourth, and fifth steps of Alcoholics Anonymous seems to be helpful in other areas to help people change and deal with outcomes……..

………and to break negative thinking patterns.

Alcoholics Anonymous, a program with twelve steps, seems to be assistive in other areas, also.  The third step of Alcoholics Anonymous is to “Turn Your Will And Life Over To The Care of God As You Understand Him”.   The fourth step is to “Do A Fearless And Searching Moral Inventory Of Yourself”, and the Fifth Step is to “Discuss the finding of Step Four with a Trusted Friend or Sponsor”.  The Program works because as the person makes mistakes and is forgiven by him or herself and is given the ear or understanding of a friend or AA sponsor, he or she grows.  To grow, you have to make mistakes and not be obsessed over something like “Losing weight fast” which could end your life.  Life is precious and valuable.


A tale of “weight loss” and obsession, change, and becoming better through past mistakes.

A Cartoon drawing done of Dr Phil and Oprah

From Oprah's magazine - - January 2012

May We Help You?


I start projects without finishing them.  It happens with everything from painting a room to looking for a job.  I set out with so much motivation, but I can't maintain it, and then I just stop.  I have a lovely wife who often picks up my slack.  If I say I'm going to help fix something at home and I don't finish, she hires someone to do it.  My life has always been this way:  I dig myself into a hole and someone steps in to help me.  I want to change, but I generally feel overwhelmed.  How can I fix this?

Dr. Phil:

  You have some degree of insight into your pattern, but let me offer a little more.  You're spoiled:  Someone has always bailed you out in a pinch, which may seem like help - but it's not.  If others, like your wife, didn't rescue you, you would learn to take care of your business.  You do what feels good at the moment, although it's not what's best for the future.  Life is about prioritizing, and adults have to be mature enough to plan ahead and discipline themselves.

     Sit down and list your top ten priorities.  then make a second list of the activities that take most of your time followed by the ones that take the least.  Now compare the two lists.  I'll bet the farm hand that you spend very little time on what you value the most.  Why?  Important goals require hard work.  That's intimidating to an immature person, which is who you've been so far.
Dr Phil is an expert in the filed of addictions.

     How do you change?  Number one:  Make a plan for the priorities you want to work on in a day.  Short of an emergency, there is no veering from that plan.  Number two:  if you catch yourself slipping, pause, regroup, and get back to work.  Number three:  Set up a system to ensure accountability.  Arrange to report on your progress midday and at the end of the day to wither your wife or a good friend.  Working together toward your shared goals will make your dynamic less like that of a mother and her child and more like the partnership it should be.

'Mexicans and High Point, North Carolina - Disputes" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

Are you pining for a beer but have adopted a clean and sober lifestyle?

How about some fresh Mexican pineapple cider?

Superior Foods, 220 Centennial Road, High Point, NC 27261 (336)887-2012 sells a unique drink - which is bottled in Texas and distributed to High Point, North Carolina also. The 100% natural pineapple cider is sold in brown bottles with yellow and white labels. "Frumex Tepache Original Sidral De Pina" is non-alcoholic and is 12% juice at 120 calories per 12 fluid ounces. It is heavily laden with Vitamin C (30% of the Recommended Daily Allowance) and has 30 grams of carbohydrates per bottle. This non-alcoholic 'beer' has the slight taste of beer "without the foam". It contains fermented pineapple extract and a slight bit of natural pineapple sediment at the bottom of the bottle in addition to brown sugar, barley, and other ingredients and can be purchased with SNAP benefits also known as food stamp benefits for only $1.09 per bottle.

One of my prior jobs was to be a 'sample clerk' at grocery stores and other stores, so I am imagining a beautiful Mexican model standing in front of the store to give out Dixie cup sample cups of this wonderful pineapple cider to shoppers and others roaming around outside on Centennial to make them aware of the product and the fact that Superior Foods now has a US government food stamps machine which they did not have before.

Superior Foods has had a hard time because they are not as stocked with food as they normally would be and for some reason, had a hard time getting a 'food stamps machine' in thanks to hassles with, and being ignored by the local government.

Some of the problems arose in the Hispanic community in general when “La Policia” started sexually harassing Mexican women in particular to allow them to immigrate into the United States.  There were several articles written about this in a free Mexican newspaper available on a newsstand at Superior Foods and at other locations, but there has been little coverage about this.  This is because readers have to be able to read Spanish and be paying attention to abuse related articles.

Mexican informants who were angry about the matter which could be dubbed “Mexi-gate” said that the United States government cared not about them at all, but about sexually harassing Mexican women and also about marijuana they wanted being brought from Mexico to the United States.  Mexicans then could not receive welfare benefits including welfare food stamps benefits or welfare health care benefits or the jobs they were promised by someone from “La Policia”.  Then, someone wanted to blame the Mexicans for being crooked and causing the trouble. 

Another Mexican store,”Pequeno Mexico/ Supermercado/ Carnerceria/ Meat Market/ Taqueria/ Taco Corner located just down the street from Guilford Technical Community College is located at 804 S Main, High Point, NC 27260, (336) 887-0913 is a beautiful Mexican store with a restaurant in the back, a full service meat counter, and booths set up outside to enable an outdoor cafĂ© without the waitresses.  They also have Mexican Television to be observed by people who purchase and eat lunch or dinner there, which could be a romantic date during the afternoon or evening for people who have food stamps benefit cards but are not able to go to other restaurants to ‘eat out’.  This store also has friendly staff and both stores are interested in having better relationships with High Point, NC government officials and others.  This store also has a variety of fresh, dried, and canned Mexican foods including an unusual relish – Pickled Sliced carrots with peppers under the label of “Zanohoria En Escabeche”, which is spicy hot, as are some of the unresolved and ignored Mexican issues like Mexican deaths.  The point is that if USA government officials wanted the marijuana cartel here and marijuana from Mexico, why were there Mexican deaths ever associated with the cartel?  This is more ‘dirty business’ and negotiations and further talks are in order, maybe even at the location described above. 

Found on a piece of folded up paper at High Point Public Library downstairs on the ground in the reading and snack area a verse was written and left behind for someone else to find.  The verse follows:

My Pig

by Rosa 

I have a pig.

She eats slop.

She drinks water

But loves soda pop.

If “La Policia” are known as ‘pigs’ by certain people because of their behavior and Mexicans had problems with men from “La Policia” in regard to immigrations and other issues, it appears that someone is not thrilled with females from the police either, or at least one person who has not been named. 

In another case here in High Point, NC. there is an abandoned Hispanic store on English Road, right next to the “Loco Burro”.  The store looks like it was either robbed, or the owners had to leave in a hurry, with newspaper racks outside, but the store’s contents askew. 

In another case, in a Mexican store in High Point, on English Road called “Terry’s Discount Grocery store” #2, in the 700 block of English Road, we accidently walked into “The Mexican Standoff” where several large black men, who looked like security guards or police without the uniforms were waiting for me and my friend to check out.  The clerk that evening, a Mexican man in his 40’s with shaven eyebrows which were drawn with black pencil instead of hair being there waited on us, and as we left I said to the man “ You are lucky to have such great Security Guards around”.  The Mexican clerk said “But I didn’t contact Security Guards”.  Informants claim that that incident had to do with a tip about illegal guns including an M-16 machine gun coming into the area with the Mexican man as a ‘friend of guns” and a possible interface with the problem. 

More will be revealed.

"Barack the Bully and Family" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

Black History Timeline Flag

An Open Letter to the Barack OBama Campaign on Father's Day - June 17, 2012

June 17, 2012
Dear Barack Obama Campaign,

"Who, me", says Barack Obama, "Someone with racist family members
who participate in Hate Crime against white people?  NEVER!"
I "Used to be" a Barack Obama supporter until I found out that Obama is tied in with Black Power which is hate crime against whites.  Also, an Obama family member, named Yvonne is ion staff at Leslie's House. 851 English Street, High Point, NC.  The woman is one of the meanest, most abusive blacks with the biggest bellowing loud mouth I ever heard.  I told the woman that I had just applied to get my MPA and she told me that I would need legal help for that. (Not everyone who works there or who lives there at Leslie’s house acts like this, but a few do, on staff, and residents.)  Apparently, she is aware of 'Black Power' where blacks use college degrees of whites to gain employment and then disregard and abuse the person/people.  I am not the only person who complains about racial discrimination.  The offenders always say that they are not racist but get abusive and also do this to certain other blacks.  This Barack Obama family member is not the only one like this there - another one is from a right winged black family and her name is Sandra Moore.  When in this situation, I do not argue back with the staff, who seem like they need to be’ written up’ and/or fired for acting like this, but say nothing.  In the past, because I am a social worker, I have worked in setting where there were clients – like a mental health group home in Columbus, Ohio and would have been fired on the spot if I treated clients there like this.  Women are there in certain cases like in my case because of prior domestic violence and abuse, anyhow, not because we chose to live there over and above being in a career path and having another place to live.  I am living in a shelter right now because of this very crime ring and how it manifested itself in Ohio.  Black Power wants whites to sell drugs, be part of the prostitution ring, or get involved in the human organ transplants cult and be in slavery as an entrance to some kind of illegal gateway, generally for blacks, and say nothing.  Numerous complaints about discrimination have been filed with the United States Department of Justice in regard to this, and the Federal Civil Rights Commission about employment related matters related back to this Black Power cult.  Why would the President of the United States and/or any family member be affiliated with hate crime like this anyhow?  The man must not be that ethical after all, people who hear and see this think. 

Happy Father’s Day, anyhow.
