Topic #1: If You Had The Power To Change A Choice You Made, What Would It Be?
We've each been provided with a number of incredible and irrevocable gifts that are often times overlooked and/or taken for granted. One of the most incredible gifts provided to you is your Power to Choose. Everything we do and don’t do in life is a choice. Every day we choose to do some things and to not do other things. Most people would like to change their life in one way or another. How about you? Are there areas of your life that you would like to change?
Topic #2: What Did The Cancellation Of The Oxygen Channels All My Babies Mama’s Do For African Americans?
Amid mounting pressure from the public the Oxygen Channel cancelled Shorty Lo reality show All My Babies Mama’s, which starred Shorty Lo his 11 children and 10 different mothers. Concerns were raised by many people who viewed the show as disrespectful and giving off the wrong message, while showing African Americans in a bad light.
On The flip side it can be argued that the show would have shown a father who is stepping up and taking the responsibility of raising his children along with the baby mothers. If this stance is taken then the show could be a positive influence.

We are living in a world where image is everything, what you wear, how you speak and the things you have. This have spilled over to body image, especially for women. Do I look good enough, am I the right size, how can I make changes in my body. Being healthy is always in order, however comparing your body with the images in the magazines is not mentally and emotionally healthy.
Is the weight loss industry a billion dollar industry?
Should I consider gastric bypass?
Do I criticize my body every day?
Everyone is different, we come in all shapes and sizes.
Body image is how you view yourself, not how the world compare you.
Body Image Conversation Is So Much More Important Than You Think: No, You're Not Ugly
Why you can, and should, love the way you look. You know, the way you would when you were younger and knew nothing of Photoshop, of size zero jeans, and models — let alone how often each of these might prompt you to ask, “Am I ugly?”
Special Guest: Priscilla Queen Baldwin
Born on July 5, 1963 raised in Bloomfield, NJ. She have 3 children, gave birth to two and adopted one. Priscilla is now single, and love make up. Priscilla is learning herself all over again. She had gastric bypass surgery January 2013, in February she had another surgery because of leakage. July 2013 had another surgery to reverse all the damage that was done.
Priscilla has been in and out the hospital since the first surgery. She have lost weight but Priscilla has paid the price for all that was done to her body....now the doctor can't help...and have no clue to stop the severe vomiting and chronic stomach pain. This is a billion dollar industry which is messing up people mind and body.
