Doctors all over the world keep saying that obesity is the result of passive life ways, junk food and poor ecology. Patients are seldom told that stress is usually the trigger that makes people eat more than they really need. Food is a tranquilizer, when you eat your body produces the hormones of happiness and your brain starts sending excessive hunger signals to your stomach to get more pleasure. That is why you cannot get rid of dangerous kilograms with diets and spots only. You need a formula that controls hunger signals in the brain and makes you 10-12kg slimmer every week.
I am the wife to a wonderful man named Will, and Mom to 5 amazing kids. Both Will and I were widowed before we met. We had 3 children between us when we married. We welcomed a new addition 1 1/2 years later. The pregnancy and birth were wild, so we decided to be "done". God had a different plan. We were introduced to international adoption, and started that process 11/04. We brought our 5th child home from Ethiopia 4/06. You could say our kids are Your's, Mine, Our's and Someone Else's. 8^) We are just grateful that they are all OUR'S! Someday, we will adopt from Ethiopia again. We know there is an "older child" that is meant to be part of our family. We trust that God will let us know when the time is right. Parenting is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever taken on. I am not an expert, but I'm happy to share any insights I gain along the way. I also appreciate any tips I can glean from my readers. After all, it takes a village, right?!
