Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Save Lives instead of Pounds

In this day and age we are a country obsessed with looking good and doing it the easy way. That's not to say that there aren't a ton of people who eat healthy and work out on a regular bases, and they should be commended. But what about the rest of us? With the Plastic surgery options, and every (or what seems like every) celebrity endorsing a "quick and easy" miracle diet plans, what are we teaching our youth?
I'll admit I've been intrigued by some of the claims these "wonder" diets boast about. I really wish all I had to do was buy Phentermine and the last 20 pounds I'd like to lose would just fall off. But alas, in reality, we all know it takes more than that.
I just have to wonder with all the time and energy that goes into developing these "wonder" pills, teas and beverages to reduce weight if there isn't something more productive or life saving these doctors could produce.
