Finding New Methods That Work
Finally. The image that I hoped to have up with the Sunday 5 o’Clock Tea is now with the A Dismal January Day Tea. (and above) I am not sure why the method I usually use for creating a composite image did not work when I attempted it for the Dismal January Tea. After several failed tries, I became stubborn about the matter. I wanted an image that included the case cover of the audiobook, the clever lid of the cookie tin, and the package of tea. (A mug of tea was, in the final version, included for balance.)
Finding a new method of compositing that worked required watching instructional video tutorials, reading some how-to text, and spending time experimenting with the new method. But in the end I learned a method of compositing that had advantages over my previous method.
Finding A New Method For Staying Slim
Sometimes the method you have long used for staying slim no longer works for you. And that can be VERY discouraging. But your body changes as the years pass, the food industry finds new, insidious ways of modifying foods to entice you to overeat, stress drives you toward comfort foods, illness can restrict exercise. So you must find a new method.
As I had to research new ways of compositing images, you may have to devote some time to finding new methods for staying slim. Warning: The new successful method usually involves eating less frequently several foods that you really, really enjoy. Not to mention consuming a lot more high-fiber, low-cal veggies.
On the other hand, you may find that your new method for staying slim has advantages over the one you previously used. Keep a positive attitude. After all, staying slim is as much attitude as what you eat and drink.
