Paula Marie Bio Products Photos Calender






 September 2005

                  Exactly 1 year after the birth of my 2nd son.

It's funny how no one can remember me ever looking this way.

But does anyone ever remember looking overweight?





March 2006

If I had not had the photos, I would not have even

believed there was a difference. How did I do it? I can show you how.

They say a photo is worth a 1000 words.

They were right!
