My favorite is the Berry gum, and my mom was partial to the Spearmint. I really liked the taste, and the fact that it's 2.5 cals per piece and SUGAR Free! It's also caffeine-free and does not contain ephedra. Now, it's not going to last an hour (C.Breezy won't be writing no songs for it, lol) - but definitely the burst of flavor gives it a nice run ... and staved off my mid-day work-day mind-less snacking desires ... lol ...
Now it's your turn, if you'd like to try ... leave a comment, and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send some your way! 2 berry & 3 mint are available. ~PC

I am enjoying my day immensely! Thanks to a stroll along the Scioto river w/ my (awh) at-work-hubby and pre-season Cavs tickets for a game here in Columbus. I joked on Twitter that, this is as close to having a pro-team we are ever gonna get :( So ... I don't do much stadium food, sad but nothing available is ever healthy, I'll probably just grab a water or something ... I'm still pretty full from my mini-soul dinner (itis)... lol. I've gotten quite a few emails lately about what happened to my daily re-cap posts??? ... I'm back into it! ... Forgive the quality in these pics, this new phone ain't cutting ... I'm looking at new ones already ... ttyas! ~PC
"I'd like to get involved in video games, since I really love Wii Fit. I think it would be a great idea to incorporate choreography, because, for me, my workout is way more fun when it involves dancing, as opposed to running on a boring treadmill. So I would love to do some kind of fitness game but incorporate dance and performance into it. I think a lot of women would enjoy that."
2. (Reuters) - Fitness-products company NutriSystem, Inc. said it would start selling its Nutrisystem 14-Day starter weight loss program on Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s shelves in October.
The program consists of a Nutrisystem menu, free meal shipping, access to weight-loss counseling and free membership in Nutrisystem's online community, and is priced at $148, the company said in a statement. The program will start rolling out nationwide at over 3,200 Wal-Mart locations and will be available on Walmart.com.
*Pics and details will all be encompassed in the non-profit "For My Culture" publication, to be released in January of 2010. This weekend marked the end of my "journey" with the project and I'm still very appreciate of this opportunity. I began in the high 1's and will end crossing a finish line. I do plan on returning to YouTube early in the year too (vids were put on hold for FMC), but not nearly as much as before. I love blogging! lol ... In addition, progress pics and such will follow the release - so it's coming too! ... But, the real story and 'after' effect is how I LIVE now ... hence my will to blog throughout. I think that's the legacy I want to have when this is all said and done. A scale is a moment, my lifestyle change is the movement. Love you Jazmine, Isela, Portia, Danny, Shanita, Mark, Becks, Andrea and all of the FMC writers and staff. We major!!! ♥ ~PC

Source: NY Daily News - "American Idol Alum Mandisa Shows off her 80 Pound Weight Loss"
"My favorite memory started out as my least favorite memory and that was when Simon Cowell made fun of my weight on the very first show. That was my worst nightmare come true. When I saw Simon the next time, I told him I forgave him because an important part of my faith is forgiving others because I have been forgiven. I will never forget that reaction: the look on his face - humbled and giving me a big hug.
When I was recording that album, I started to do the work necessary to be set free: changing my eating habits. No particular diet, just eating healthy. I started working with a personal trainer and a counselor who specializes in eating disorders. I have lost 80 pounds since I started recording.
I don't believe in diets, because I have lost weight on them all, but the thing about diets is that you have the mindset that you stop a diet when you are done losing weight. This really is a lifestyle change for me."
Among the many changes Hundley had to make in her life, the singer says she cut out tempting Krispy Kreme doughnuts and worked with a personal trainer who makes her do cardio, weight training and a Latin form of dancing called Zumba.
"Star Mag...LIES! Literally not 1 factual thing in entire article. And, come 2 my house&weigh me Star! I'm 107lbs. if you care about FACTS?!? I think its UNFAIR tht magazines & entertainment shows can print/air celebs tweets.want2B able2 tweet w/my tweeps&now have2watch wht I write. This is my weight, and I'm not unhealthy, I'm very healthy. It is hard to be criticized in public, and it's harder for your family to deal with it than you. You kind of get a thick skin. When you have kids and when you have a husband, it's upsetting."
My focus has really been my diet; continued varied cals per day, an influx in my protein (ironically, not eating much meat though), fresh fruits & veggies as my dependency on processed foods is weakening (thank goodness). It's funny, I used to look at nutritional labels and beam right to the 'Calories' or 'Fat', sometimes 'Sugar' ... now, I go straight for the ingredients ... lol ... that gives me a much better picture!
But umm, that's it for now ... I hope you are all still in this fighting the good fight ... cheers to a fantastically powerful week ahead ... ;) ~PC
