My name is Lana Moshkovich and I am a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. I practice in the state of IL in a beautiful Clinic in Deerfield.
All my life I struggled with weight loss and finally created a wonderful support system for myself. I lost 34 pounds in 7 month.
I would like to share it with you.
This book is not the same as as other's books. Instead of writing a general weight loss book I thought to share with you my personal daily, weekly, monthly routines.
Lana's Weight Loss Workbook is a series of 3 month volumes.
It's organized and developed in a daily format with motivational help, my daily food intake and recipes, pictures and gym routines.
Anyone can replicate the work I have done and it's doable.
Every day you will see my story and my routines for the day and you have an opportunity to write down what you are going to do and what you have done.
You can enter your metrics every day ( weight, BMI, size...)
Morning Brainstorm. On your workbook page you have Morning Brainstorm where you get ready for this particular day. This is your planning thoughts.
Evening Reflection. Here you have an opportunity to write what you have done for your weight loss, meals that you eat, workout you have done.

This dating book will produce one thing - MORE MEN. Now, I know you don't want more men you just want the RIGHT man. But to get the right man you need CHANGE and that's where I come in.
Hi I'm Gregg, my life is spent going out, meeting people and learning the dynamics of Saturday nights, daytime get togethers and work place interactions that lead to love and EVERYTHING in between. One thing still blows my mind - Why wonderful, intelligent women are still single! Many have given up or don't have a clue what they are doing wrong.
Why, when it is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life, would you leave the choice of who you’ll spend the rest of your life with up to chance?
When you recognize that you’re the chooser, rather than unknowingly allowing a player to choose you, finding a man gets easy.
Where do you find this dating confidence?
Men are attracted to confident, happy women who are fascinating - you know that. But how do you become that woman other women envy?
Happiness doesn’t come from having a man in your life. It comes from living a life that is true to your values, pursuing your dreams and goals, creating your true vision for your life, being surrounded by people who support and love you for who you are, and several other factors.
This is what I'm offering you;
Out in your social venues you'll learn;
You're going to own the scene by Unleashing Your Inner Tigress!
Along the way, we will reinforce your confidence with exercises throughout the book. You'll take inventory for what you are grateful for, practice self-care and self-love, and hammer home that YOU come first and men second.
Oh, and did I mention you will be taught how men think? And how you can win him over by mirroring his behavior, laughing at his jokes and dropping the right type of compliment to stroke his fragile ego??

This Day in Comedy is not just an encyclopedia, but a celebration of comedy. In humorous prose the book takes readers through the often-neglected subcultures of comedy in America, acknowledging the inclusiveness of the performers as well as shows and films that made this art form so vital to comics of all backgrounds. It’s artistically criminal that a search for Native American or Asian comedy information yields a virtually blank slate. Look for Middle Eastern comics and you’ll be provided information on the region's comic book revolution, and search results for Latin comedy are confined to a series of outdated articles. This encyclopedia will offer rare and in some cases never-before-seen photos and obscure facts, making it an indispensable comedy essential.
This e-book edition of the original hardcover (2002) is a portrayal of the political, economic, and cultural history of community gardens in a New York City neighborhood, the Lower East Side of Manhattan. An ethnographic study of a particular instance of urban history, it provides a basis for an understanding of urban community gardens in the United States. Beginning with a historical overview of urban community gardening in the United States and other countries, the author concentrates on the last two decades of the 20th century in this portrayal of a social movement that seeks to impact urban environments both in social and economic terms and in terms of ecological dynamics. The last decade of the 20th century in particular has been critical with regard to the development of a broad network of community-based coalitions acting on behalf of urban community gardens.
The author considers internal dynamics and organization of individual gardens within the specific social, political, and economic context of the Lower East Side and analyzes the political struggle on behalf of community gardens in that neighborhood and the entire city. The author also addresses the diverse ways in which community gardens on the Lower East Side have become critical components in the daily life of urban gardeners, predominantly poor and low-income people.
