  5. wow thats a lot of spam samantha. I've heard of people asking for 1 link, but 10? lol. Google would penalize any site that spams a link farm to yours. what a pathetic offer.

  6. At it's most basic, losing weight is about burning
    more calories than you eat. That seems simple enough,
    but if were really that simple,
    none of us would have a weight problem.
