 in response to Emil...   Wow, interesting! This makes so much sense and its such an easy thing to do I can't believe it never occurred to me! I sit so much, driving to tutoring sessions throughout the day, sitting to tutor, and sitting at the computer to scan/upload documents to the district...amazing I could be standing and burning calories as well as improving blood circulation etc.
what a great idea, Im going to pass it on!

Hi aidpage members, I just wonder if anyone here leads a healthy lifestyle and can give me some information and tips as to what you do. I have regained my pre-baby body by doing alot of work but need to maintain it and eat healthier to set a better example for my kids/family as diabetes runs on both sides as does high blood pressure. If you eat organic, juice or dont eat certain foods like red meats or bleached products, can you tell me your basic diet? Im trying to make healthy changes and substitutions and want this to be a lifestyle change. We currently eat out 6 times a week or more due to my husband and my working so much but I would like to cook more and just cut my hours to stay home and spend more time. I have little kids at home so looking for kid-friendly recipes or ways I can sneak veggies into their diet as well as any other pertinent advice or recipes you have. THANKS!

 in response to My daughter'sdad...   First of all, I have worked since I was 14 and raised three boys by myself. Now I am raising a grand-daughter. You do not know me or anything about me. In college, you are known as a "Troll". I am sure you know the meaning of this, but for all the others here, it means he trolls forums looking for arguement. Trolls do this to make themselves feel important. So sir, you are the pathetic one and I feel sorry for you. If your life is so full, why aren't you spending time with that wonderful wife and kids instead of looking to tear what confidence someone may have left, apart? As far as job apps, four a week, every week mister. I will leave religion out of this one. Let's say we are nuetral person to person. Re-read your post to me. It was the most despicable thing I have ever read. You are channeling some kind of frustration out on these people here and myself. It is not welcome and it is not hurting anyone but yourself. You mentioned in earlier post about certain religion judging others and acting almighty. What about you ? You paint a perfect picture of yourself but in truth if you were that happy in life, you would not be harassing innocent people looking for at least a kind word. Still, if you asked me for something, if I have it I would give it to you. That is what DECENT human beings do.

 in response to delayinamwallace...   Ok,
first let me ask you if you intend to try to potty train or think she isnt ready then what size diapers are you looking at? Also what size clothing are you looking for her and yourself? Give me a little more info and I'll see what is out there for you. Have you applied for food stamps or any aid? Knowing these things will help me in trying to find services for you.

 in response to delayinamwallace...   Hi,

I just wanted to offer what I can for advice. If you are out of work and staying with a friend, the one thing I would focus right now is on getting your daughter potty-trained. Its a good time to cut the expense of diapers out of your budget. Potty trainng is most successful when a parent does it and at the age of two, girls are usually more than ready. It should only take at most 3 days up to a week if you are consistent. In addition, if you sign up now for some free offers, you can give her a birthday treat for hardly anything. Just off the top of my head, I know you can get a free corndog at Weinersnitzel on your daughters bday, a free icecream at baskin robbins, a free kids meal at dennys and Kmart gives you a free kids pack with a goody bag and a $5 coupon. I know it doesnt seem like much but its a start in helping yourself and my hope is to empower you so that if no one offers to send you money for diapers or gifts or clothes (and 95% of the people here can't because they are just as bad or worse than you are) you can feel like theres still some things you are capable of doing on your own. I am including the link for kmart as its not always easy to find so if your interested, just click on it and register your daughter. If you sign up with baskin robbins, they will send an email with the free cone about a week prior to her bday. Also, if a chuck e cheese is near, you can get her 20 free tokens on her bday. Sometimes you have to get creative and I know its hard but even still the good news is a 2 year old has no expectations yet so you can make it a really special day without a bunch of cost. They dont know the difference. Try the Free section of craigslist for clothes, I know plenty of people that give away kids and adult clothes daily. Also try freecycle for free clothes as well. If potty training isnt an option due to your daughters medical problems right now, you can try contacting all the major diaper companies with a request for a one time coupon and let them know your situation. I have helped other members get diapers this way and it may work. If you want me to help you out with this just let me know.

 

sorry forgot the kmart link http://birthdayclub.kmart.com/

 in response to NEEDHELPME...   There should be county assistance in your area...But, maybe not. Here in Calif. they have CMS (County Medical Services) who help most anyone who cannot afford health insurance or medical help. Dont know where you live or if you have access/your county provides these types of services. I would suggest look into that type of program... or, call some of the local schools to see if they know of a no/low cost dentist. They sometimes have referrals because alot of schoolage children cannot afford the dental care they need. Please dont wait around for some Jesus-Freak to give you their religious advice and tell you to trust in the Lord. You will be waiting for a long time! The best REALISTIC answer is to seek out the answer(s). There is help out there! You just have to find it. Have a good day.

A scientifically proven miracle, not just the fairytale stories you read in the manmade bible... You ever seen someone walk on water? NOPE! You ever seen waters part without scientific explanation? NOPE! All you have is your fairytale stories.

 in response to maggielynn1...   Feel sorry for me? Why? You are the one here complaining about how bad your life is...on SSI, all the mental/physical ailments you have had to deal with and are still dealing with... Dont be sad for me...Dont pray for me..Its useless...Uhm, you can pry for yourself, but its still useless. try a good Psychologist or Psychiatrist..That might help...and, a prosperous career at McDonalds. "May I take your order"?

 in response to Janxx...   I have been where you are, I hated myself, I felt alone, and lonely. I was on several psychiatric medications, I had been diagnosed with bi polar, depression, anxiety, ptsd, I didn't feel like i was worth anything, I hung myself it got so bad, i am no longer on my psych meds i am happy with my life, and with myself. I am no longer on any street drugs, and i am in college, what it took for e was giving my life to the Lord, not just praying, but praying and asking god to show me what to say, and I prayed until He answered my prayer, and filled my soul with peace. He can do the same for you, that is only a small list of what God has done for me. if you choose not to go that route, i recommend positive thinking, and realizing you deserve to be loved, and respected, take the time you have, to do some soul searching, get to know yourself and what you enjoy, find out what is important to you and what you want out of life and go for it. I say all this knowing that the feelings your having can be paralyzing, medicine and positivity didn't help me. don't run from yourself, embrace who you are, get aquainted with yourself, and learn to love you for you, I realized no matter what i did I would be making someone unhappy, so I follow God, do my best to do His will, I read the Bible, and I pray. If you decide to try to find God, pray and keep praying until He answers, you will know because you will be filled with peace, thats how you'll know your saved. it's called praying through. anything short is emotionalizim, also, trust God and listen to Him and His word, He will guide you get to know the bible for yourself, that way when false christians try to mislead you you will be so close to God that He will guide you in the way that is right, follow the Holy Ghost not some man, men are fallible. I hoe this helps, i'm not online much, but if you have any questions, or would just like to talk, i'd be happy to talk with you. Lord bless you. P.S (the things i went through i suffered with for over ten years.... I don't know how long you have lived like this, but you can overcome it. when you do, know that how you have felt even at your worst, will seem a distant memory. life is worth living, and filled with happiness, there are sad horrible things, but you can't let those drag you down, or dictate how you feel. have a wonderful day. Smile! you are special!! God loves you.
