The Facts about Quick Weight Loss: How Effective Is It?

Weight gain is like any other bad habit. It builds slowly over time until one day we get a wake-up call and think, “this has to go – NOW!” Quick weight loss is almost universally desired by those looking to lose weight. Never mind that experience and research has shown it to result in only temporary weight loss. The appeal is that somewhere out there is a magic pill that takes it away quickly and keeps it off for good. If you’re in search of that magic bullet, I’m afraid to tell you it doesn’t exist. No acai berry pill or dangerous mix of chemicals will do this. No extreme calorie reduction diet or countless bowls of cabbage soup will do this either. But take heart. You don’t need – or want – a radical, quick weight loss diet to get you to your weight goal faster. We’ll tell you how to speed up the process and do it so your weight not only comes off but stays off permanently. In other words, we’ll show …

Spoiled Little Kids (Brats)

I recently read another blog that had some excellent writing on their personal experiences with kids getting completely spoiled by their parents on Christmas and other holidays. Unfortunately, the blog used a fair amount of cursing to get their point across, so I don’t feel all that inclined to link to it from this blog. I try to keep things on the family-friendly side here. It did inspire me to share a few thoughts on the topic though. What exactly is it with parents these days? Ha! You thought I was going to launch right in on the kids, didn’t you? I’ll get to them in a minute. The reason I start in on the parents is it really is their fault. Being spoiled is not a genetic thing, it is a result of upbringing. Sure, tempers and personalities prone to anger can come from those genes a bit – goodness knows my son comes by it honestly – but the blame for being kids being spoiled lies squarely with the parents. It all comes …

Skipping Black Friday

I gave up on Black Friday a long time ago. There, I said it. I have come out of the shopping closet and showed my true colors. There really is nothing I find appealing about Black Friday, and the deals these days simply are just not worth it. I would love for someone to convince me otherwise, but I just don’t care anymore. That said, my wife this year braved the crowds, and very cold weather, to stand in a line to get our kids a Wii game console. We have avoided any sort of gaming device for our kids for years, but this one has won us over from the active play standpoint of their games. At least it requires them to get off of the couch and be involved in the game. Trouble has been, though, finding any in stock. The Wii’s popularity has far outpaced the production capacity, so finding one has been trouble. Fortunately my wife’s choice of store and diligence paid off and we have a box under the tree …

Pet Peeves Still Interest People

It has been some time since I have written on What’s Gotta Go. My lack of compositional volume is not for a lack of things to gripe about, trust me! I thought I would write a little catch-up and insight as to the status of things. A bit over a year ago I started up WGG as an experiment on several levels. First, I wanted to try out WordPress as blog software. Second, I thought it would be interesting to see how well placed a blog like this could get ranked in Google, as a site, and on various topics. Third, I thought it would be fun to rant about some common things people (meaning almost all of us) do that get on the nerves of others around of us. These rants were intended to be in good humor, and often tongue firmly in cheek. Over time I wrote, along with some guest posts, over 250 articles Not too shabby for a non-writer as myself. One of the things I most enjoyed was just attempting …
