I’m doing the 24 day challenge right now. I’m not a distributor or anything like that. I was recommended by a friend who lost 12 lbs and his wife lost 9. I’m a full time college student and a part time waiter…so I gained about 30 pounds. I’m currently on day 4. All I know is that Ive had more energy than I have had in 4 months. I weighed this morning and I’m down 8 pounds. I don’t know how hard it will be to maintain the weight loss after I’m done with 24 days but I do know that I wouldn’t say that this isn’t meant to be a diet. It’s teaching me what to choose and how to eat throughout the day. It’s a lifestyle change. Hopefully I can stick with it. Good Luck to you and finding your own way to lose weight.
The preparatory work immediately above and below are some of my favourite pieces in this entire AS Art exam submission. They were completed digitally, with existing paintings and grounds scanned and then merging and edited using Photoshop (Adobe Fireworks is also great for this). Digital manipulation is a much under-utilised strategy for A Level Art Painting students. While Graphic Design and Photography students generally live on a computer (and would sometimes benefit from more hands-on approach) Painting students are of often the opposite extreme, sometimes never venturing near a computer lab. This is a shame, as playing around digitally can result in unexpected outcomes that push students in an exciting new direction. In these two works, as with the remainder of her submission, Nikau demonstrates independence and confidence in concept and execution. She selects and controls digital tools with the same precision and competence that she shows has when using physical media, processes and techniques.
