This is because I am 5' 1" and weigh 104 lbs. I was pregnant or nursing for 17 years without a break. I have been pregnant 10 times and I am healthy and happy and I have my BBB back. (That would be my Before Babies Body). I did not diet.My husband and I halfheartedly followed natural family planning but I am a rare case; have conceived 5 DAYS before ovulation.

my children are still alive and in good health!
I am a relatively green, 57 year old blogger who has just recently put one toe in the 21st century but is basically a computer illiterate. Unwittingly, I have just agreed to blog for 30 days in a row on health issues. As I sit down to type my first post, reality suddenly clashes with my impulsiveness.

If you're having a challenging time losing those pounds you may want to start putting more food on your plate. If this sounds just like the kind of diet you've been waiting to hear about then you're in good company. There is a catch to this eat more diet.
The food you place on your plate has to be healthy and low in calories. Numerous studies show that our hunger is satisfied by the volume of food consumed and not necessarily the calories contained within the food, explains USA Today.

Persons then engage in repetitive behaviors (compulsions) in an attempt to rid themselves of the obsessive thoughts and calm the anxiety. If you suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder, then the chances are you will relate to most of the following points:
1) Are your thoughts persistent and repetitive, going round and round in your head like a song? My hands are dirty, my hands are dirty, are my hands dirty, maybe they aren't, maybe a little, ok I'll wash them again just to be sure. 2) Do you feel you have to repetitively perform behaviors in order to quiet your thoughts?

I went with my husband to the Doctor's today, Mantle Cell Lymphona Stage IV agressive cancer. Remission they said, last time they said cured. We spoke about the power of the positive thought. Most people that get to where my hubby The Sting is, well they have had a fight on their hands and now the fight is over.
I was just listening to the talk the doctor was going on about. Have a blood test, check here and there and think it won't happen again.
With that thought, he started. Once remission has set in with the stem cell transplant the next six months you should... Read More
