LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A women's facility is not my thing. My ex esta encarcel. No, I'm not ashamed. He was in recovery for ten years when we met. Then a really messed up thing happened to one of his kids + he lost it. It would be interesting to see que pasa si; "The Rockefeller Laws" really were changed.

The initiative taken for the concern is very serious and needs an attention of everyone. This is the concern which exists in the society and needs to be eliminated from the society as soon as possible adult

I think with so many kids out there starving and eating out of garbage cans we tend to focus on how and what we eat. Yes you should be healthy and excersise your body. Your body is a temple of God and should be treated with care. After all you only get one body. The old saying says you are what you eat. I think its ok to cheat every now and then because life it too short to deprive you of goodies from time to time. As long as its not on a daily basis it really won't do any harm. When you deny yourself is when you want something more and may take the chance of overeating because you went so long denying yourself. Everything in moderation. Eating organic foods is great but very costly and in today's economic climate we are all trying to save money. Eat healthy, cheat every now and then, excercise and take vitamins. It's so easy to gain weight and so hard to lose it. To each his own. Love yourself regardless of your size and always strive to do better.

I learned to really love and accept my body when I was in my 30's. Now in my 50's, I still love my body but after a full medical exam yesterday I realize I haven't been taking care of myself. My blood pressure is too high and I've gained about 15 lbs. in the last 4 years. It's been in these last years that I've had to take care of aging parents, grandchildren, and boyfriend. As latinas, I believe we focus so much on the needs of others and often forget about ourselves. Time to take care of me.

has no one else noticed the amount of weight and aesthetic changes that nuestra mujeres go through when they get to hollywood? look at jenny lo from 15 years ago when she was on in living color and how she looks now. there's no hiding the booty (she's boricua after all) but she's considerably skinnier, tanner, light hair, the whole 9. and saying it's not a "problem" is inaccurate. there are no stats on who's battling the issue or not. i easily knew a dozen latinas throughout new york asian escorts my life who have combatted disordered eating at some new york asian escort point in their lives. it may not be the extreme cases that societal portraits paint, but it's still disordered eating. whether you're obsessively dieting, counting calories, depriving yourself new york escorts of food, or new york escort smoking to supress your appetite. the problem still exists.

Our nation is in shambles concerning health period. Addressing the comment about Jennifer Lopez she look like she wanted to improve her health and stamina. She does not seem to stray away from her latino roots and no matter how thin I have seen her get she has never lost her (assets). As far as her hair color it always appear dark to me maybe a highlight here or there but she does not seem to have any disorders. Now-a-days it seem to be more people struggle with being too fat than skinny. I don?t see many people walking around the streets latin, black or white looking like Amy Whinehouse. I don?t think everything should be classified as a disorder.

Hey, what's all the obsession with JLo's %#&@$!?

Look, my philosophy is that you do not need to STARVE yourself to look and feel healthy. Just as it is a freakin' shame to eat like a pig and saturate your body with a whole lot of lard or grasa by eating alot of cuchifritos.

The key word here is MODERATION, BALLANCE and VARIETY.

1. Eat small portions during the day as your body ask of you.
2. Mix your diet with a reasonable or small portion of steamed and raw vegies, protein (fish, poultry, meat), carbos, and lots of fruits.
3. For snacks, fruits, vegies, ice cream, and other ices that are NATURAL.
4. You are entitled to splurge once in a while;
5. A glass of wine in moderation -- and when you "cerebellum" indicate to you that you have had enough, just freakin' QUIIT!
6. Take pride in yourself as a person and do not allow peer influence and others to dictate to you. Stop and desist of envying others for their achievements and focus your energy on improving your God given gifts!
7. Protect and beutify your body, which is a LOAN to you, and can be taken back at any time. If you were to loan your car to a family member (if you do) and they return it filty and almost destroyed, would you appreciate that? I think NOT. So, PROTECT and safeguard that body that God loan you and keep it as well as you can as best as you can.
Finally, stop finding excused for being a FAT PIG, (sin pelo en la lengua) -- think about your diabetis, cholesterol, heart attack and how unconfortable you feel dragging all that MANTECA around.
Moderation is the key to feeling and looking FANTABULOUS.
Keeping a POSITIVE and healthy mind is another.
Surrounding yourself with people and things that are pleasant, positive and constructive.
Distancing yourself from those who are negative and envious and contributes nothing but criticism or se las pasan LLORIQUEANDO todos los dias a diestra y siniestra.

Be REAL to yourself! Give thanks to God and your guardian angel. Que Papa Dios los cuiden y los iluminen siempre.
