”Type 2 diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions in the United States, but it is a disease that is often preventable with a lifestyle-based approach - better eating habits, regular physical activity, and better tools to self-monitor and self-manage the risks,” said Dr. Bruce Daggy, Chief Science Officer at Nutrisystem. “Likewise, lifestyle approaches are key to improving outcomes for those with the disease itself. To help battle this epidemic, we’ve spent years developing, improving and testing Nutrisystem D. We know that being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes can be traumatic, and changing a lifetime of habits can be difficult. That’s why we’ve worked so hard to make Nutrisystem D simple and easy to follow.”

I love living in central Texas because all the major cities are just hours away.

I have been to San Antonio many times over the past 20 years and we always find new things to do! The San Antonio Zoo now boasts an exotic Africa exhibit that we haven't seen yet. I'd love to see a Dive In movie at the Splashtown San Antonio Wave Pool too. There is even a new South Texas Heritage Center at the Witte Museum where we can learn about the 1850s through live performances and interactive exhibits. I can hardly wait to see the new rides at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. It's also a tradition in our family to go see the Shamu show at Sea World. With SAVE discounts, we'll even be able to stay at The Westin Riverwalk San Antonio.

People are asked to take new pairs of socks to any of the community drop-off locations nationwide between July 9 and September 3, 2012.

Late Fees: Missing even one credit card payment can be extremely detrimental to paying down your debt. Many credit card companies charge a fee if your payment is made only one day after the due date. A tardy payment can also lead to an increase in your annual APR. A recent article on Forbes.com warns that “each time you are late the card issuer can reset your APR to the default APR or ceiling APR.” If you have signed up for a zero percent APR card, missing a payment can nullify your zero percent APR for the remainder of the deal.
Zero Percent Intro APR: These offers are often very attractive at first glance, but beware to read the fine print before signing up for one of these deals. According to the aforementioned article on Forbes.com, “most 0 percent APR offers are for balance transfers only. Any new purchases or cash advances will be subject to a much higher interest rate.” Often times the fact that new purchases or cash advances are subject to higher interest rates is not made highly visible unless you read through the entire disclaimer. Additionally, balance transfers to new credit cards often come with a transaction fee (usually 4%) which is automatically added to any transfer amounts. This means that the consumer is paying 4% just to move the money around – you might be getting 0% APR for six months, but you pay 4% upfront to get it. Making new purchases or using the card for cash advances can nullify any chance of utilizing the zero percent APR to more quickly pay down your debt. Remember to always read the fine print on any credit card offers.
Fixed Rates: A fixed rate credit card, as opposed to a variable rate credit card, is enticing to a credit card holder because it ensures you that you will be notified in advance if there is a change in your annual APR. However, this does not mean that your rates cannot be changed. The credit card company can still change the interest rate at any time, and for any reason they see fit. Most cards are attached to the “Prime Rate” (currently at 3.25%). This means that banks and credit card issuers will charge a “fixed rate plus prime”. If the prime rate goes up, so does your interest rate.
Inactivity/Annual Fees: Inactivity and annual fees (also known as membership fees) are fees that the credit card companies charge simply for holding the card. These fees can be a set amount determined for a yearly basis, or a set percentage of the total credit limit on the card. Many times companies will offer a “No Annual Fees” promotion to bring in new customers. This offer is usually only for a set period of time, not for the entire period you hold the card. In addition, if you do not spend enough on a card over a specific period of time, card companies can also charge inactivity fees, which vary from company to company.
