"You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime." -Dale Carnegie
I'm an old mom (my children are 39 and 29 and my grandsons are 10 and 5), but I still find the crockpot a great way to cook healthy without having to hover over the stove. I think you will like it here...I'm proof that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!
Don't be shy about asking questions and be sure to check the recipes thread on the team's homepage. And keep in touch!

Hello everyone. I am a new mom - not so new now - he's 10 months old. I went back to work full-time after he was 9 weeks. In addition, I am finishing my PhD. Needless to say, my life has changed dramatically, my body is different, and losing weight has become a challenge. I recently purchased the GoWear Fitness Tracker (similar to the Body Bugg, which is supported by 24 Hour Fitness and seen on The Biggest Loser). I am using this site to supplement and track my weight loss. I don't do much cooking - my husband does. However, with the birth of our son, I am interested in easier and healthier meals using the crock pot. It would be great on nights he works a bit later or when I have class.
