I’m not much of an outdoors person.
It was the summer of 2005. I’d just graduated college and spent a fair amount of time in Austin with a good friend from Texas Tech who had an internship in Waco. She’d drive down from Waco, I’d drive in from Marble Falls, and we’d go out on the town. We were a couple of [...]
Editor’s note: I’ve never been pregnant, so I am unable to write about post-baby weight with any authority. A friend from high school was generous enough to write a blog post on this topic for me.

I bought the Woman’s World tabloid again last night. I recently posted about a Woman’s World probiotics story, and began taking probiotics after reading that story. The probiotics do seem to curb my appetite (or help, at least). This week’s Woman’s World headline was a little more ambiguous than the probiotics headline – this cover story simply said [...]
