May you all be prosperous with Love and Money as well!
You describe yourself with such terms as "fat cow" when you should be saying "So What" to the world! Do you have any idea of the magnitude of how you have helped people all over the world? Those people sure do not see you as a "fat cow." They see someone with a good heart who has changed our world.
Do not apologize to others about your weight...it is only your inner self that knows the emotions you have dealt with and why you have struggled for so many years with your weight. Do you think when you die people are going to remember you for your weight or for what you have done for our world? There might be a few that will scrutinize you but that is just their jealousy coming out.
Oprah, we want you to be healthy so you can continue to share your ideas, thoughts and your monetary blessings with the world but the weight loss thing is a side line thing. I know you feel you have to always focus on your weight but most people do not care how much you weigh they care about what you are going to say next.
You need to start to say "SO WHAT" to those that ask about your weight. Your focus needs to be your overall health.
A major study reported recently in the New England Journal of Medicine concludes that having too much of this ‘belly fat’ can actually double your risk of dying from heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes, and it can triple your risk of dementia. Here’s the most frightening statistic from this important 10-year study: for every extra 2 inches (or 5 cm) around your waistline, you increase your risk of early death by up to 17%! This should be your reason to lose weight not what people are saying about your weight! This is not an image thing this is a life change. Oprah physical appearance will be a benefit side effect to you becoming healthy.
Scientists understand that there are four distinct aspects that must all be addressed for weight loss success.
Here are the four aspects:
One must Eliminate Dangerous Abdominal Fat
You need to Control Appetite
You need to Enhance Metabolism
There needs to be a way to Cleanse and Detox the Body
Oprah, I know you are thinking, "No Sh_t Sherlock!" I hope I am here to help you a bit.
Oprah, what if I knew of a company, that sold a product that can help you with the four aspects you need to help you get healthy? Would you take a look? What if i told you there was a 90-Day, Unconditional, 100% Money Back Guarantee? There is no risk with trying.
This product is a TRIPLE-PATENTED, Clinically Proven...A Totally Unique WEIGHT LOSS JUICE!
There will also be a healthy lifestyle plan to accompany this product, and it's an essential component of reaching your weight loss goals. The plan includes eating well and physical activity. Oprah, since you already do physical activity this lifestyle will just be enhanced with a product to support what you have already been doing. Thanks to the product's triple patent pending technology and formulation, its clinically demonstrated efficacy, and its' 4 way action, it will be easier than ever for you to cut some calories and increase your level of physical activity. Oprah, doesn't that sound awesome?
Oprah, the benefits go far beyond weight management, as the formula contains ingredients that, in the potency's found in our product, have been clinically shown to support cardiovascular, colon, and cholesterol health, and a lot more. This is for you to be on the HEALTHY track of life. Oprah, you are a force no one can compare to in this world, we need you to be around for many more years. I wanted to share this information with you and hopefully you will take a look.

Seems t0 be the phrase I have been using these last few days since my surgery. "Seeing is a bit challenging," also seems be be a phrase used by many people dealing with the economic crisis as well.
Going through each day with one eye that sees clearly is a bit challenging. I have had a few headaches and have felt a bit 'sea sick' but I know this will pass. I also had a stitch that needed trimmed back because it was irritating my eye lid - once the doc did his work my eyelid was more comfortable. I am still putting eye drops into my eyes daily and sleeping with a horrific looking eye patch - my youngest looks at me funny before he kisses me goodnight! I know this will all be worth it in the end when I can see without prescription glasses or contacts. Science and medicine are gifts from GOD. I am blessed that I am fortunate enough to be a candidate for Phakic lens implant surgery and that I too have the income to cover the cost - insurance does not cover the surgery - I wish it did but my implants for my eyes is considered elective, even though I am nearly blind without glasses or contacts. Some of you have witnessed my "coke" bottle glasses :)
Eyes...what a symbol. If you look close enough at a paper dollar bill you will see a 'seeing eye' at the top of a pyramid. The all-seeing eye is a symbol showing an eye surrounded by rays of light. It is sometimes interpreted as representing the eye of God keeping watch on humankind. Do you think we needed someone to watch over us for the last 50 years or so?
During this hard economic time many people are being challenged. People were using money like it was Monopoly money for so many years that it did not have the value it once did. I am also guilty of that and my kids are as well. The difference between myself and others is I actually had the money to cover my 'things' while many other people did not and charging was the answer. There seemed to be so much to go around that each person forgot they were suppose to be the ones watching over themselves. The bubble had to burst sometime and it sure did! Do you see the seeing-eye on any credit card???
On our PAPER currency, not plastic credit cards, the eye is surrounded by the words "Annuit Cœptis", meaning "He approves (or has approved) [our] undertakings," or "God has favored our undertaking." I guess it was meant for the paper money we had not the plastic - like I said where is the eye on credit cards. Below the separated pyramid is, "Novus Ordo Seclorum," meaning "New Order of the Ages." We definitely will have a new order once government starts to control major companies with their bailouts!
I was reading that the unfinished pyramid, on the dollar bill, means that the United States will always grow, improve and build. There is always something to be accomplished. Well I guess there needed to be a time when we were suppose to slow all this building down!
I do not know what all of these symbols are on money means for sure but I do know that people need to start becoming more accountable to themselves and remember that just because you want something does not mean you NEED IT! This concept can be a bit challenging for some to grasp but without this concept a lot more people would be a bit more challenged at the moment.
Back to my eyes - my next surgery is this Wednesday the 17th. I know I will not be seeing clearly in either eye so not sure if I will be able to give you any update unless I can smash my nose against the keyboard and the computer screen:)
Just a little holiday spirit - My company is running a special until December 23rd - just $19.95 to sign up as a rep. If you are looking for your own business from home with a full 90 day, 100% money back guarantee check out MY BUSINESS

EYES! Yes they are our windows to the world.
The precious commodity that we all take for granted until our sight is in jeopardy. I actually am one of those that have never taken my eyes for granted. I was born with very poor vision. My parents did not know how bad until my twin sister and I went to our first eye doctor visit around age 5-6 (not quite sure). The first comment my sister and I said to our mother was we did not realize the trees had tops! I am almost 40 but that day changed my life forever. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about it.
I know this is the holiday season and everyone is stressed about income and what to buy for others this year. All I want is good eye sight. My eyes have been deteriorating over the years and they are so bad that my vision could not be corrected by Lasik alone. By my age you would have expected my eyes to get settled and not get any worse...well not the case. My eyes hover around -18 and-19 diopters. A diopter, in my case, is a negative number (which indicates nearsightedness and a lens that minimizes things). A diopter simply indicates how powerful a lens is in order to properly focus light on a person’s retina, and it is defined as being “the inverse of a person’s focal length in metres.” Focal length is the distance you need to see an object clearly for a fine-detail task, for example to read a book. A –2.00 lens would mean the person can only see a distance of up to 1/2 of a metre clearly. In my case I am a -18 and -19 so I see a distance of 1/18 in one eye and 1/19 in the other - yes it is not fun. If I do not have my contacts in or glasses on I cannot see the precious faces of my kids or see my husbands face until he gets close enough to me to give me a kiss
Many people also have astigmatism, which means that their nearsightedness or farsightedness is not the same in all directions. This is because their corneas are not perfectly round, but stretched irregularly, like a cylinder (or the back of a spoon). I am of course in this category as well.
Astigmatism makes vision blurry at any distance. A good analogy is having my kids erase a pencil mark on their paper and leaving a smear mark, which makes a blurry mark. The image looks distorted in a particular direction, rather than being distorted in all directions. Astigmatism does something similar to that smear mark on top of the nearsightedness or farsightedness that we already have.
On December 3rd I went in for a procedure that has been around for about 20 years worldwide - in the USA less than 10 years. I had a Verisyse™ Phakic Intraocular Lens placed into my right eye. They do one eye at a time. In a few weeks I will go ahead and do my left eye. I do not want to do the procedure injustice so I recommend you visit the link to find out more about the procedure.
This procedure is more in depth then I had expected. I was told by the doctor my full vision will not be clear for up to 8 weeks! The day after surgery I was able to read the GIANT E on the eye chart. It was a bit blurry but it was the clearest I had ever seen he E in my entire life without my contacts or my glasses. It truly was a life changing moment.
It is a bit challenging writing this blog post because I have a contact in my eye that has not been operated on yet and it is very blurry out of my operated eye. I am not able to drive for several weeks and I need to stay away from my 5 mile a day run for a bit - that is very challenging! The end result will be life changing and I cannot wait so the sacrifices I make now will be well worth it!
Because of my Astigmatism the doctor had to use stitches that he will remove in intervals to help to correct the Astigmatism. I need that in both eyes. I also have very large pupils so to get the best results without the HALO effects and glaring effects that some get from LASIK my eye doctor used a larger lens but the prescription was not to the strength I needed. They just do not make them in my strength as large as I needed. I will need to go back in several months for follow up LASIK surgery to make small adjustments. I wish I could just do the LASIK but from where my journey began my CORNEA was too thin. Once it is corrected to 20/50 vision - I hope - then the LASIK can be done.
Thanks for letting me share my story and I will definitely follow up with my progress.
Create A Wonderful Day!
