AUDIO SAMPLE: All I Ever Did Was Love A Man

It wasn’t easy being a single mother. Sabrena worked hard to make her daughters happy, to give them a solid, secure home. Getting away from her cruel and abusive ex-husband was almost easy—compared to making ends meet and balancing a job with single parenting. But, finally, at long last, Sabrena felt her life was coming together. She had a good-paying job at a department store, two beautiful daughters who were growing up with love and security, and a wonderful friend, “Rach” who was more like the sister she never had. To put the icing on the cake, Sabrena had a man, Steve, in her life that she loved with her whole heart and dreamed of finally holding onto the love she deserves.

Except for one thing. Steve said he loved her, but he was unreliable, a liar and in her heart she knew that he was not 100% hers.

Is That Fried Chicken Wing Worth It?


A Get Real Approach to Dealing with WEIGHT,Not a Diet but a Mindset!

by Sharon Denise Allison-Ottey, MD

As I lay on my back with my legs over the exercise ball listening to my personal trainer bark the number of sit-ups that I had to complete—I wondered; Was that fried chicken wing worth it? I’d eaten a fried chicken wing the night before and when I refused to do another crunch, my trainer promptly told me that it would take hundreds of crunches just to burn off one wing. How could that be? I’m a physician—that didn’t sound right, she had to be exaggerating! Was it really worth it— the wing was tasty with that meaty, juicy flesh covered in crisp skin. I’m from North Carolina so I KNOW how to fry some chicken. It only took about 2.9 minutes for me to INHALE the savory wing but now I’d have to sweat and grunt to burn it off, not to mention the millions of wings long ago devoured that now were converted to fat on my body which I was desperately trying to lose.
