  1. His enthusiasm is a wonderful thing! but a juice fast is not the answer. He should obsessively and enthusiastically follow a diet that will be better for him. If he goes paleo or atkins he will have a dramatic 1st week weight loss. No doubt. Then his cravings for bread and pasta will almost disappear (I'm Italian too, I get it!) as hard as that is to believe/
  2. I know I'm joining late, but I'd love to join this group. I'm going to read Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris for this week.
  3. You can't go low fat, low carb and low calorie at the same time... I'm not sure if you tried them separately or all at once. Low carb diets need to be higher fat and thankfully the food is much more appealing that way. Is he following a certain diet? I lost 60 pounds following Marks Daily Apple (paleo/primal) and everyone in my house ate what I ate, and loved it! I do add white potatoes, rice or sweet potatoes to the kid's meals. Those were okay for me if I couldn't resist. Crusty Italian bread would not have been so okay for me to indulge in, so I didn't serve it.
  4. It's about time! Yay BSA!
  5. :leaving: Don't think I didn't think of that! (after it was done of course, :lol:) I couldn't resist the box. Cheap, immediate, and the lady on the cover had beautiful hair. :tongue_smilie::tongue_smilie::tongue_smilie:
  6. :lol: Leave it to Wendy to ask for pics! ;) I tried to take a picture but strangely enough it looks better in the picture than it does on my head :confused:
  7. Thanks for the advice, I guess I'm going to call a salon and see what they can do. I'm glad to hear that it can probably be fixed :)
  8. Can a salon color over my store bought home dye job? I'm sure if I called a salon, they would want me to recolor there $$ but will it look ok? Has anyone done this before and had it look "right"? My roots are growing in and the rest of my hair is this weird light red color :001_huh: I'd like it to be a nice brown with blond highlights. :bigear:
  9. Avatar: The Last Airbender The Legend of Korra (sequel to avatar) My kids love these two shows plus Liberty's Kids that was mentioned earlier is a big hit.
  10. Wayne (and Oakland) have horrific flooding. If you find something in Wayne and it doesn't say anything about it, then make sure you ask (maybe neighbors or a local agent?). Last year Hurricane Irene devastated areas of Wayne along Rt. 23. In that area, Oakland is really nice. Have you looked at Nutley? I worked there (and Martha Stewart grew up there, lol) and it has a small town feel with a nice town center and close to highways for convenience.
  11. It's amazing how easily children can memorize but it is equally as amazing how quickly something is forgotten if it is not reviewed or used. It's mind boggling to realize that if a child moves to another country at around 5-6years of age, if they don't use the language they were speaking and hearing since birth -- their entire first language can be forgotten!
  12. I don't know if this has been mentioned yet but one option is for the student to get a job where the employer pays tuition. My stbxh works for Verizon and had his undergraduate degree paid in full including student fees and actually, all fees by the company. He only paid for books. He went to Thomas Edison State College BUT he could have gone to NYU, Rutgers... wherever! They do not have a cap. You go - they pay. My stbxh majored in criminal justice. If he wants to pursue a masters -- it's on Verizon. Plus they earn a decent wage (full base pay after 3 years! with full benefits that t
