When my cable company changed the channel line up, I got upset. While I could still watch my favorite show if I wanted to, it meant that I would have to subscribe to their most expensive package. I didn't think that was fair that they put such a popular channel in the highest priced package, and I decided that I was not going to play their games. I looked at the channel information for DirecTV because I knew that they had some impressive prices for new customers. When I saw that the channel I wanted Read more [...]
I am a single mother raising two teenage girls. They are 15 year old twins. They are eerily similar in so many ways, but they are distinctively different as well. They share an amazing bond, yet they are their own individual persons too. That is why I have always wanted them to have their own bedrooms, which has not always been possible. When we were forced to move so I could take on a new job, I really hoped that I would be able to find three bedroom apartments in Hattiesburg Mississippi.

I felt like I was at the end of my rope. I was single, but it was worse than that. I had never had a serious boyfriend, ever. I knew that it was probably because of my weight, and I vowed to change. The breaking point was when I was asked to be a bridesmaid in my cousin's third wedding. She had found three men who wanted to marry her, and I couldn't even find one who wanted to take me out to dinner. I found something online that said to click here for information on nutrition and exercise, so I did just that.
I knew that I needed to up my exercise, but I also had to understand nutrition a lot better too. I was overweight because I was overeating, but there had to be a reason for it. It did not take me long on that site to finally understand what was going on. I was eating too much food, but I was not getting the right nutrients. I was robbing my body of the things it needed to survive, which meant I was always feeling hungry.
I learned on this site which foods to eat, and I also learned which ones to avoid. I knew that potato chips and candy bars were no good for me, but they were so tasty that I kept going back for more when I had a craving. Well, I started eating the right foods, and those cravings went away. The first couple of weeks were hard, but it was smooth sailing after that. I actually had to buy a new bridesmaid's dress because mine literally hung on me, it was that big. Even better than getting a new dress was having one of the groomsmen ask me out. I don't know where this will go, but I know that I am going to enjoy life from now on!
