As Apocalypse approaches: So Here We Go Again
Prepper advise for Dieters as the Apocalypse Approaches.
I just read the novel “Weather” by Jenny Offill. I cannot recommend it enough but one of my takeaways is that there is a whole world out there, outside the novel, which is prepping for the end of the world, or as they call it: EOW. The character in the novel was a librarian and knew an amazing amount of “stuff” and I began to think if I were a prepper awaiting the apocalypse, what would be my acronym? I'd still have to maintain my weight so here are two: SHWAA= So here we are again. Because, let's face it, any rollercoaster dieter has faced catastrophes before. And, my second acronym: ISHTWMC= I'll still have to watch my carbs.
In this 175th episode of the podcast, I tie these observations together with a recent article in the New York Times published under the Rites of Passage section, titled, “The Diet Industrial Complex Got Me, and It Will Never Let Me Go.”

I am having some tech difficulties this morning so if you tried to download my podcast from ITUNES or your phone app, try trashing the version you have and then re-downloading it. The Gremlins hit me this morning but I think it is fixed!
This month I also started making my fabrics into padded eye cases to go with my zippered bags that now have waterproof lining as well as regular lining. Creativity really is the best health plan!
