I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Sunday Special - The Mommy MD Guide To Losing Weight and Feeling Great

The Mommy MD Guide to Losing Weight and Feeling Great
by Rallie McAllister, MD.MPH and Jennifer Bright Reich

Our view: If you want to lose weight and feel good about yourself, this book is for you. It gives you doctors recommendations for losing weight, exercising, and feeling good about yourself among others things. This book is not just about doctors giving advice but they are actually telling you what they themselves do to lose weight, maintain weight, exercise, feel good about themselves etc. Therefore, you know that the tips they are giving have actually worked for somebody and they are not just spouting suggestions. We also like that they make recommendations throughout the book about products, foods etc. The recommendations are very detailed including prices and web-sites where the products can be purchased among other things. Also, the recommendations are not at all pushy. It is not like they are saying you have to get this or that. It is like they are saying here is something that worked for me. There two sections of receipes included in the book: recipes for losing weight and recipes for feeling good. They don't just give you receipes either. They explain why the particular recipes are good choices. All in all, the book is very encouraging. Having it is liking having a good friend with you on your journey not only to lose weight but to feel good about yourself.
