Let's Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson

Hi, my name is Tina and I am a recovering diet addict. My first official one started in the 8th grade and all the fat ladies at Weight Watchers told me how much they wish they could have done this at my age. The addiction went downhill from there. Even though I could see that manipulating food could produce weight loss, I bought in hook line and sinker. I came to the proper conclusion when confronted with scripture on the subject. This is a book review, so enough of the confessions and on to my latest read “Let’s Do Lunch” by Roger Troy Wilson.



Wilson weighed in excess of 400 pounds and discovered a way to eat as much as he wants and loose weight. That eating plan is laid out in “Let’s Do Lunch.” The majority of the book is Wilson’s personal story of loss and gain, as well as recipes that adhere to the “Let’s Do Lunch” eating plan. Chapters 2-6 are the plan itself and the reader is encouraged time and again to read those four chapters three times.
This book is easy to read and the eating plan is simple enough to follow. It is almost impossible to gain weight with the plan that laid out in the book, even though you can pig out at every meal. There are testimonies about weight loss through out the book from people who have had great success with the “Let’s Do Lunch” eating plan.
The plan is a very fluid, making it easy and almost too vague at the same time. The Fourteen Day Meal Guide in Chapter 7 is almost worthless with its constant repetition and prolific use of “Bill’s Mashed Potatoes” which are used at least once a day for eleven of the fourteen days.
Overall, it is another diet, which almost tempted me, but in the end, God won out.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap. Study Questions Week 10 When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others?  When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person? When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments?  God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise?  Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even
