Blessed: I’m extremely fortunate. I have a boy in 1st grade who loves everybody. He adores small children and loves to show them how to play in the sand, swing in the swings and anything else their parents will let him do.

Challenge: He has a tendency to not like to read. At least not to me.

Today I took Bear to the library and I had an opportunity to watch him enjoy reading for the first time. While he was sitting in the library, these two little sisters came in, he took to them like he always does.

Answered Prayer: This time was special. He sat down between them on one of the little couches and read to them…. And ENJOYED it!!!

Thank God and all his angels for getting us here!!!!




Many a time I have used a modern girdle to pull it all in. When I was at my heaviest, I befriended an adorable girl who had a lingerie store. She got me into everything we could since my belly wasn’t beautiful yet. I was living in my premeditated focus that I was cute. She helped me regain my mental fabulous back by guiding me to lingerie that would help me recover my BC (before child) body.

I had tank tops in nude and black, actual boned girdles, special panties meant for torture… my self esteem was getting a fabulous lift. Wearing those things helped me remember that I was to walk around like I already have the wonderful body. Thanks to my BFF, Anna, I was walking around with a shrinking belly and a wonderful new friend.

Reading some mommy blogs, this one being with Brooke Burk, I noticed her ad next to the blog. It mentions the girdle she’s selling. The Baboosh. Looks like a winner to me. To be able to get up, put on a garment that helps remind me to suck it in and do some ab work, I’m all over it. And as much as it’s going to get worn, it’s worth $56. My guess is that if Brooke is putting it out, it’s a good product.

Do you have anything to lift your self-esteem until your natural girdle kicks in from all the crunches you are doing? Give this a try. It helps.
