June 8, 2011, I was blessed with my greatest blessing my son Gionni. During my pregnancy everything started off well and normal until I got into my 5th month of pregnancy I had many complications, To begin my son was too long to grow inside my little body (I was only 5’0 125 pounds at the time) so he curled into a ball with his feet turned inward to feel comfortable in my belly. Which caused him to have a foot defect by the name of bilateral club foot where the child feet grow inward. I was so stressed out after finding out my baby boy had a birth defect and not knowing the cause of it until after giving birth to him. My doctor had me coming in every week for heart beat checks because many babies who are diagnosed with bilateral club foot either have other defects or have short term life span of a year.
So my stress relief was food, I laid around a lot and just ate EVERYTHING I craved and more. I LOVED soda, fried foods, every sweet treat, I barely ate veggies etc, my family and friends gave me what ever I wanted because if they didn’t like most pregnant women I was hell on heels LOL. I was NOT active enough while pregnant & I did not exercise. As mothers we all know you are suggested by doctors to eat healthy and maintain a certain amount of active activity when pregnant. When I was about 7 months pregnant I went to the doctor for my regular check up and he told me that I needed to begin a healthy diet and a lot more physical activity such as pregnancy yoga and water aerobics because I was gaining weight too fast. I didn’t listen I thought ” Oh I’m pregnant I’m supposed to gain weight and be fat,” until One day I was walking in the mall with my son’s father, I was close to my 8th month of pregnancy and my feet swelled up so bad I couldn’t walk, they were burning and hurting so bad. My feet had always swelled up pretty bad but again I thought “When you’re pregnant your feet are supposed to swell like this” but this time it was unbearable. I called my mother she told me to soak them in Epson Salt and cold water and go to the doctor the next day.
I did as she told me I went to the doctor the next day. I told him my symptoms and what was going on so he ran a few test on me. As we waited in the examination room my doctor came back in and told me” Well Ms Moreland it looks like what you have here is a case of gestational diabetes also known as pregnancy diabetes” my heart fell on the ground all I could think of was my son and how diabetes affects your pregnancy. My doctor gave me a diabetes diet that I followed and place me on bed rest for 2 weeks.
I had gained 75 pounds ( now at 200 pounds) by the time it was time to deliver my baby boy. My delivery was very hard my son was 3 days late my water wouldn’t break so my doctor ordered Pitocin to induce my labor I did get a epidural to help the pain. When it was time to push in my delivery the weight gain and the lack of no activity and stress really showed, it was so hard for me to push and I got tired so easily that my son got stuck in the birth canal too long my amazing doctor Dr Cacciatore came in and got him out with his bare hands. My son came out not breathing because he had swallowed a bowel movement and his head had swell to the size of a child’s beach ball. I couldn’t hold him as soon as he came out because they had to rush him into the NICU. He had to have tubes in his lungs to drain the bowel movement and was on a feeding tube for about 4 days. After a week they allowed me to bring him breast milk I pumped and they fed him threw the tube. After 2 weeks of being in the NICU and passing all examinations my baby boy was released to us. After his health was 100% I had to work on mine I was now at 187 pounds my rib cage had swell and been inflamed because my excessive weight gain and my son’s position while he was in my belly I had been diagnosed with permanent sciatic nerve damage. I had very low self esteem I mean who wouldn’t who’s been 125 pounds her entire life now 187 pounds. I HAD TO GET THE WEIGHT OFF. I decide to share my tips and secrets on my weight loss because I know there are a lot of mommies and women who share my story or have gained weight and wants to lose it and feel as though its impossible. Im living proof that it possible! Im here to help and to guide and inspire you all to do great and be a healthier sexier YOU! LETS GET HEALTHY & SEXY LADIES!!
New York City Marshals seized R&B singer Rapper & Producer Ryan Leslie’s fully loaded in mint-condition Cadillac Escalade after Ryan failed to pay reward winner Armin Augustein.
Almost a year ago, a judged ordered Ryan to pay the $1 million reward for who ever was to recover his stolen laptop. Leslie refused to pay the fee explaining that the reason is because the music that was once on his laptop was no longer there. Augustein then filed a federal lawsuit in New York City, in which he won. Well Leslie still hasn’t paid up, his car will go up for auction tomorrow Monday September 9 and the proceeds will go to Mr Augustein. His car was seized August 8 nothing else has been seized thus far. Do you think that this is fair? Should he pay up? Comment below your thoughts.

Recently rapper Rick Ross has taken A LOT of heat for a line in his new song U.O.E.N.O in which he says a controversial line that seems to be referring to date rape. He states “Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne. She ain’t even know it. I took her home and I enjoy that. She ain’t even know it.” I don’t believe that reebok should have dropped him from his endorsement because rap has no censor for example Young Money Artist Mack Maine stating ” when you turn 18 holla at me miley cyrus” implying he was waiting on a minor at the time to turn 18 to date/have sex but no one said anything or rapper Eminem crazy lyrics about killing his ex wife rap is rap it has no censor. Most of the time in rap the artist says what’s going to sale what’s going to attract a crowd in his/her record not something they believe in. Yes, he said it but I don’t believe that he would actually do that to a woman. Reebok will agree with this being that they said in their statement to TMZ “While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse.” I can see why they are disappointed he could’ve showed more concern and some remorse for offending rape victims but at the same time this is a man who’s been judged and talked about since day 1 so he probably feels as if this is another case were he’s being attacked by the public. In my opinion this is exactly what happen. If he had actually took action in sexual assault I would understand them releasing him from his contract but just talking about it in a song no.

BESIDES loving and being in a committed relationship with his BEAU Rihanna, Chris says he still loves his ex girlfriend Karrueche Tran. ALSO, he doesn’t want her dating any musicians in the future. States Rihanna Don’t want him being friends with her. Read on for THE FULL STORY!
Well Chris Brown still loves Karrueche and wants her to be successful in life. BUT there’s ONE thing Chris doesn’t want her doing and that’s dating other MUSICIANS. Is that even fair after what he did to her?
In an interview with Power 105 “The Breakfast Club” on Monday Chris opened up about his feelings for karrueche and admitting it would be weird if she date another musician.
Karrueche Dating Another Artist?
“Yeah, that would be a little close to home, At the end of the day I think it should be a respect boundary, saying that he wouldn’t want Karrueche to “s**t in my backyard.”
Well in my opinion it sounds like he’s being selfish. Why should she still respect you and filter or rearrange her dating life for you after you disrespected her? But continue…
Chris Brown Still Loves Karrueche
“She was my friend threw it all, It was a friendship more than a relationship. I still love her, but at the end of the day, I got love for her. She gone always be my homie!”
How does RiRi feel about this? well, Chris States she doesn’t want he and karrueche friends but she has to understand when he had no one karrueche was there and he can’t just say forget her and they are also business partners in a clothing line “the kill”.
Tell me what you think my babes about this, is chris being fair? Do you think he’s maturing? Leave us a comment telling us what you guys think!
I know right now is a hard time for Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart being that her Hubby has filed for a divorce. But she seems to be taking it publicly okay, which I applaud her for because I’d be going nuts if I found out my husband is filing for divorce threw the media!
Porsha tweeted on March 26, the day of the divorce announcement: “Thank you for your Prayers.”
Also on March 26 she wrote: “Morning Dolls Today is the 1st Day of the rest of your Life! Make It GREAT! #PS❤U.”
She wrote on March 27: “Never Would’ve Made It – Marvin Sapp 🙌 God is still in control. Faith.”
Then on March 31 she took a moment to tell her fans: “Happy Easter.”
There has been reports that they are reconciling their marriage and going to counseling. I hope this isn’t because Ms Porsha brought up alimony tho. My dad always says if you marry her it’s cheaper to keep her (LMAO) !!
Porsha Released This Statement To “US Weekly” back on March 26 : “Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce. Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her. Instead, he misled her and she found out about the filing in the media. Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith.”
I wish them both the best and I hope that they work this out because they are one beautiful couple who seems to love and respect one another!
