According to the CDC, back pain is the leading cause of disability in the U.S and results in $50 billion annually in health care and workers’ compensation costs. With exercise and proper strengthening of the back muscles and the abdominals, the muscles that support the back, the frequency of back pain can be decreased. In this country we often look for the quick fix and many get spine surgery before they have given physical therapy and adequate chance resulting in many unhappy patients. For instance, spine surgeons often quote a 98% success rate for fusion surgery. Preventing Lower Back Pain

At The Start - All Set When I first started writing this weight loss blog more than 3 years ago, my goal was to make lifestyle changes that would enable me to not only lose weight, but once I had lost it, to remain within a healthy weight range for the long term.

I thought I’d share my thoughts on that with you today. Note: Major Update July 16th and July 17th. See "Closing Point: Addendum" and "Short addendum" at the end of the article, a few P.S's, and a complete list of references. It’s a fairly lengthy article, but hopefully interesting enough to keep your attention, informative enough to teach you a few things, and decent enough to mark my return back into the love-hate-relationship I maintain with the Internet (…and its potpourri of good and bad, smart and dumb, facts and bullshit).

James Allen books of Inspiration - The James Allen Library In his own words: ...I dreamed of writing books which would help men and women, whether rich or poor, learned or unlearned, worldly or unworldly to find within themselves the source of all success, all happiness, accomplishment, all truth. And the dream remained with me, and at last became substantial; and now I send forth these books into the world on a mission of healing and blessedness, knowing that they cannot fail to reach the homes and hearts of those who are waiting and ready to receive them. I write for men, not for babes; for those who are eager to learn, and earnest to achieve; for those who will put away (for the world’s good) a petty personal indulgence, a selfish desire, a mean thought, and live on as though it were not, sans craving and regret. —James Allen
