Are You Suffering from WAIT LOSS?

daughtersofgod.net
Procrastination costs a lot! In fact, it makes you lose a lot of opportunities and gain a lot of unwanted things--like extra body weight. Indeed, a lot of people suffer from WAIT LOSS. They wait a lot and suffer loss. Look at the following:

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. [Ecclesiastes 11.4]
It's good to wait--"They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength"--but too much waiting can destroy opportunities. If I had waited till I was old enough to get a job, I wouldn't have landed on a job while in college. I couldn't have helped my parents with household expenses and couldn't have helped them with the expenses of my sister's education. 

If I had waited till I felt perfectly OK in health before I started working out again, I probably would be tied to a sick bed by now, suffering more ailments. I had terrible anxiety attacks about 5 years ago after suffering severe muscle trauma that made me stop working out and gaining weight. Even if I did just 2 or 3 push-ups I felt so dizzy and had difficulty breathing.

That went on for almost a year, until finally I decided I couldn't go on like that--idle, kept in my room and afraid of exerting myself physically. I thought, probably when I felt OK already, I'd start all over again. All that waiting made me lose a lot of opportunities and time. Time is gold.

So gradually, I dismissed the anxiety and went back to working out. It was difficult, but I realized I had to start something and keep on. Gradually, I was able to brisk walk, run, and then workout completely. It took months to fully recover.

If you wait till everything's perfect, you will suffer WAIT LOSS. If you've studied and prayed for it thoroughly--and you're the right age--and you're sure she's the girl of your dreams, then go for it. Start courting her. Further waiting can result to disastrous losses. But then, you have to make sure you're the right age and you have God's approval. If not, you wait.

But don't stop at one thing just because you need to wait. Life must go on. Whatever you do, make sure you're not suffering from WAIT LOSS!

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
