What's in My JEANS is Not in My GENES

Weight Gain and Genetics By Kelly Songy Nelson I am a Cajun from New Orleans, so I know what good food tastes like!  I grew up there and partook in all of the yumminess the city has to offer.  I knew five food groups: carbs, fried, fatty, battered and buttered.  New Orleans is a very culture driven city; lots of amazing chefs are from New Orleans, yet we don’t know how to feed our children things that will actually keep them healthy.

Do You Dream Big or Is Your Weight Keeping You From Chasing Your Dreams?

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Do you still have dreams, goals, aspirations that you would like to achieve?  It may seem like an odd question, but I find that the older people get, the more likely they are to have given up or significantly altered the dreams they once had.  When you were 10 years old it was easy!  People would ask you what you wanted to be, and you would blurt out proudly the dream God had placed in your gut without any hesitation. “I want to travel the world!”  “I want to be a doctor!” “I want to work with exotic animals!” “I want to be an astronaut!” “I want to start a band!” For a 10 year old, nothing is off limits or seems too hard! So when did that change?  When did we start to dumb down our dreams?  People in your life: parents, teachers and…
