How is this to lose the last 10 pounds

My brother the bee keeper has a great formula for the last 10 pounds. Get local unpasteurized honey as close to raw as possible. Raw means the honey is just allowed to drip from the frames and not spun. But to go on. Take one teaspoon a half hour before bed. Leave it in the mouth as long as possible so parts are absorbed by the mouth.

This does two things one is to make your digestion better and more complete during the cycle just after sleep begins and rests the liver as honey translates easily into body useful stuff.

I do not understand words like metabolism deeply or maybe at all. I dwell in a world of logic.

Practice the one bite less concept. It is easy and painless. Always have one less - spoon,- slice,-piece,-dollop, of everything except water. Spring water or good well water is probably within range. Have double your water intake. It helps all the flushing of toxins.

Practice walking. Just walking. Whenever you can walk. Make walking a challenge. I go back to the washroom to pick up this or that anything to encourage me to move. I exercise my arms and hands cleaning up more after others. I go up to the third floor office and down to the main floor many times a day so when you can do it with walking, do it with walking.

If in a school walk the halls every hour or so. If you can ride a bike and it is flat then ride to work but that is probably not an option. Maybe to a nearby town if not too far and you like cycling. Read on a treadmill. You can set it slow or fast.

Remember that the mind is devious and will find a reason why not for everything so you have to trick it somewhat by putting the first idea into your head when action occurs how can I use it best to exercise my body that I loooove soooo much.

Ah I loved waking up at 5 and after a shower go to the main hall at Kripalu and stretch and wake up and do yoga and meditate. There is no you but rather the sensation of complete pleasure to myself. I am so bad. I immediately thought of wanting more than that and thought of women. How ordinary but real. Weigh yourself after you read this letter. Naked and correct if you can see over your belly. Just a small joke. Belly.

Do two morning breathing exercises. One is alternate nostril breathing. You can Google it on You Tube. and stomach pumping also on You Tube. I will explain in words and hate you if you already know this.

Standing legs comfortably apart bend at the waist and let my arms hang down. I try to relax a moment. I then breath in a modestly large inhale until my arms are raised high and my fingers stretched up. I hold my breath and seal my nose with my thumb and baby finger and then I breathe out releasing alternate nostrils a bit at a time until the lungs are empty. Still holding the breath I bend at the waist putting my hands on my knees. Then I pull up my stomach and then pump in and out with my belly muscles. It is awkward at first possibly as the body is really learning a new way of moving. 8 pumps are enough. I have done less and more and prefer to push gently toward more to get the day going. I is fabulous for if you do that for say 8 cycles complete you are refilling your lungs slowly and fully. The last act is taking your hands off your knees and letting them rotate up like a swimmer at the start line and now slowly and with as much awareness as possible breath in as full a breath as you can. You will learn how much by doing.

Below are some pages from a Yoga Site: breathing exercises. There are lots of ways.

If you want to do the stomach pumping while sitting here is a page that tells you how.

How to hold your hand and a slower kind of alternate breathing

That is it.

I bet in a month you will have lost enough weight to impress yourself and maybe even some bystanders. To review.

1. Water!!! Water makes it all happen. Replenish, refurbish the whole.
2. honey 1 Tsp half hour before bed as directed. This may also be done at the beginning of the day.
3. Breathing exercise to fill the body with new air and practice the muscles that want waking up.
4. The rule of one less. Remember the mind is strong and will object to two but will not mind one. Love yourself.
5. The idea of movement, walking, reaching, bending, biking, every thought if translated to action is a good thought. Even in danger.

I will bet $100 that with spirit you will succeed. The last 10 pounds is a snap and at the end you will feel great!!!!!
