About a week ago, I created the group, the Healthy Lifestyle Teachers.
Why did I do this?

I wanted to share with you a very joyous moment. I just got my yellow belt in Tae Bo Kwon, Billy Blank's martial arts interpretation of Tae Kwon Do. He's the only 8th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do in the United States, and I'm so honored to have the opportunity to study under him, Shellie, and Julieanne. When this picture was taken, I had just finished my test and was high on life.

Hi! I'm Redhead Mama, Publisher of Bookieboo
When people find out how much weight I've lost, especially if they did not know me when I was heavier, they look at me in amazement like I've done something impossible. My weight loss and new lifestyle have nothing to do with super human strength. I'm an ordinary stay-at-home mom with a very active toddler boy, whom I named the site after. Everything… Continue

The Busy Mom Diet: Is this You?
This is the true story of One Busy Mom and her quest to gain control over her "diet" and her body. She was initially unable to see a solution, to see where she had lost control - after sharing her story the light bulb flipped on.
