Traditionally, when you speak of your own good fortune, you follow up with a quick knockon a piece of wood to keep your luck from going bad. More recently, simply saying the phrase “knock on wood”—or “touch wood” in the UK—has replaced actually knocking.
I'm losing weight steadily.
About fifteen pounds in the last two weeks.
That's a huge weight loss and would normally not be normal but mine was quickly gained weight and bloat and water and what I call soft fat vs slowly and steadily accrued fat I'll call hard fat.
The next thirty and forty pounds will no doubt come off a lot slower but possibly handily as it all has been gained in these past few months.
I was down to 260# three months ago and went up 50# in about 75 days with on and off bingeing.
I should never have let it happen.
I'm locked in again on my once a day meal with no salt and no seasonings and water only to drink.
Meat and eggs with a few sporadic onions and garlic cloves and an occasional feed of wild rice.
Usually four ounces of wild rice.(uncooked)
Boiled with meat and onions and garlic.
Occasionally I'll use rice four on my fried chicken or fried fish.
Fried in pork lard from the butcher with nothing done to it.
Mostly I fry everything in it's own grease and then fry the eggs in the leftover grease.
It works good and is satiating.
The eggs suck up the grease.
I'm hungry all evening and into the night but decline to eat and then go to bed and wake up not hungry.
I cook and eat anyway after a few hours and it always tastes great.
Meat and eggs with nothing on them.
Raw unprocessed meat always.
Raw meat cooked while preparing it to eat.
I want this 50# back off and then to go down from there.
I hate being fat and it will kill me eventually.
Plus not being able to do much of anything as well as my appearance.
I hate obesity.
There is no need to be except the feeding of our addictions.
Eat carbohydrates and you will want more a little while later.
Again and again all day.
Don't eat carbs and you forget to eat.
It makes that much difference.
For the obese..
I would like to weigh 170# or 180# when they put me in the grave and for that hopefully to be a long ways away.
Knock on wood.
I just did..
When I don't have wood available to me I knock on glass or whatever is near me.
Like when I'm in the car or something..
A little game I sometimes play when I'm hoping or wishing for something or when I'm on thin ice with danger of falling through and I know it.
A friend I know from years back I see the other day is dying of throat cancer.
He smoked weed and cigarettes much of his life or always.
Right to the end or nearly so I'm sure.
I feel badly for him but he did it to himself.
Just like I'm doing with the fat and obesity.
I'm eighteen and a half years off cigarettes and nicotine and weed.
The same with gambling and alcohol and caffeine.
I have smidged a little bit from time to time in my binges with chocolate which is caffeine.
I wish I could say twenty eight years or thirty eight years or better yet say I had never done any of these things.
I was dumb just like everybody else..
All this before I ever discovered the psychological aspects in all this..
My discovery regarding stimulants and what they have done to us and what they are doing to us..
My recent discovery..
The adrenaline like effects of all these stimulants we eat and drink.
And the effects of shit weed..
Amphetamine and methamphetamine is another shit disease that is going on big time and having profound effects on our cultures and societies.
Both immeasurably effecting our earth and mankind to an enormous degree..
ISIS and the middle east.
Japan and China and Korea.
This thing is big.
Seven and a half billion big..
The clock is ticking.
I don't like being a pessimist but that's what's happening.
It's still a good life for we fortunate ones.
The ones that know how to live.
It's a good life if you know how to live it I always say..
In America and the USA and many or most parts of the world anyway..
If your fortunate enough to be one of the many and not one of the two billion people living hard lives of despair and starvation and disease.
Seven and a half billion people on speed was never meant to be..
An accidental disease..
No gods and nothing else to help us with this disease except ourselves and we are to ignorant and pig headed to see because of all the stimulants and speed.
Nothing is stupider than humans on stimulants and speed and weed.
Feeling our superiority.
Our loving kindness.
Even that is speed..
Murder the whole world and think of ourselves as kind loving souls living for Jesus.
The epitome of superiority and speed.
Hallmarks of speed.
All knowing or not knowing.
Whatever it is we got it.
Denial and living our lives that way..
Whatever makes us best or at least ok and not responsible for what is happening or having had happened in earlier history..
Higher than kites on drugs and stimulants and never once knowing it..
The reason for all of the insanity for thousands of years now and everything that is happening today..
