BROOKIEBOMB's SparkPeople Blog BROOKIEBOMB's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Just logged in So I married the love of my life. And we just had a baby girl 5 months ago. Loving my life. Working on slowly loosing the baby weight 1lb at a time. This time I have adopted a mostly Vegan lifestyle and I am loving it. This was a personal choice for me.

The story they have wrote is completely false and could not be any further from the truth. <BR> If you would like to read my real diet weight loss story please check out my personal website at www. brookiebomb. com under the about Brook section.

After a long night in the ER on new years they discovered i have 2 pea sized kidney stones. the cause they belive is from the water i have been drinking which is too high in oxalte and calcium even though i run it through a filter.
