I am 35 and a stay-at-home-mom with 2 school age children. My husband and I have been married for 13 years and we recently decided to have another baby. I maintain a healthy diet and exercise 2-3 times per week, but would like to achieve my optimal weight before getting pregnant and maintain a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy. I gained 45 lbs with each of my children before; I was able to lose it each time, but I'm older now, that may not work out as well -- I will also need support for weight loss after baby. This is a lifetime committment for me.

Believe while others ..
By William Arthur Ward

Believe while others are doubting.
Plan while others are playing.
Study while others are sleeping.
Decide while others are delaying.
Prepare while others are daydreaming.
Begin while others are procrastinating.
Work while others are wishing.
Save while others are wasting.
Listen while others are talking.
Smile while others are frowning.
Commend while others are criticizing.
Persist while others are quitting.

This is what makes the difference between ordinary and EXTRAORDINARY!

    emoticon Hello again!

    I thought I’d pop in again to check up on you and see how you are doing. I hope you are able to avoid that swine flu that’s going around! That’s bad stuff!
    I haven’t heard from you in ages; are you okay? Let me hear from you! I'm guessing you've had that baby by now!

    Now for my latest tips and pointers: Heh! (you probably already know all this stuff, but it's me...making my rounds! LOL)

    I am surprised at how many folks don’t know what the drug information is on their prescription bottles. The first name is the trade name of the drug and the name in parenthesis is the chemical compound as in “Prilosec (Omeprazole) or for another example, Tylenol is another brand of acetaminophen.

    Exercise is important to diet because frequent physical activity improves the number and functioning of mitochondria in muscles. (Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of the cell. They are organelles that act like a digestive system that takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy for the cell) so keep moving as much as possible!

    Have a great day~ emoticon Dusty emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi Simone!

    I just wanted to come visit your page and see how you are doing! I’ve been out and about lately so now I need to catch up on my friends! I'm thinking its almost time to have that baby!

    I’ve found the following information in the Tuffs University publication and thought it noteworthy to share. Tuffs has a lot of great information and tips; I hope you find it useful for yourself or to share.

    5 ways to Fight “Restaurant Syndrome”

    1. Nip negative cycles in the bud. After an indulgent night of eating out, start your day with a bowl of high-fiber cereal.

    2. Eat out less frequently, even if you go out just as often. Try eating at home before a social event, and then just nibble lightly while being sociable.

    3. Never arrive starving. Snack on something satisfying before you eat out, such as an apple.

    4. Micromanage your order. Be specific about what you want, from salad dressing on the side to no cheese on the French Onion Soup.

    5. Take control over the signals your eyes and nose send your brain. Drape a napkin over the bread basket. Spill some water on those leftover fries.

    So I say to you, KEEP ON KEEPING ON and never, never, never give up!

    Hugs as always~Dusty
