hello, everybody. it's the first day of the work week. it's fun day monday october 14th. happy columbus day to you. >> however you spent your weekend, it was much better than the way you spent yours. >> yes, well. >> what happened? >> i started out in the morning on saturday. i hate when you have to get blood taken. it means you can't have your coffee in the morning. i like to be right there at the hospital. >> first in line. >> so i'm there. i overslept. i'm falling over everything
trying to get the dogs out. i get in the car and go okay. only to find out i have no insurance anymore. so that's one problem. then i get home and i go out in the backyard, it's a beautiful, blustery day. i have my rubber kind of boots on. boy, was i ugly. i looked like the queen of england with the corgis. i come in. as i'm coming in the door i feel this unbelievable pain go through my left ankle. i go, something just bit me and it ain't good. took off the boot and it was a bee. a bee in the middle of october. >> in the boot. >> a bee in the boot. he had his way more than once with me, which wouldn't be a first. look at that foot. that was this morning. it looks like gangrene. no, i have gout. i have a cankle. it's this one. i could never be a weather
woman. i can't do that. i have a cankle now. >> so you're taking benadryl. why hasn't it gone down? it's been since saturday. >> most people are wimps and they wouldn't come to work on monday on columbus day, but no. >> did it. so you're icing it, that's it? >> icing and benadryl. i can imagine one time i did get -- it was the day before whitney houston and bobbi brown got married, i remember this i was supposed to go the wedding the next day. cody was like 2 years old, 3. he got in a hornet's nest. i picked him up and ran him to the house protecting him like this. he didn't get not one bite, but my arms -- i looked like popeye the sailor man. >> keep taking benadryl.
>> i would love to hear from everybody. not that we have an electronic person on facebook anymore. >> we're working on it. >> maybe somebody could look into that. be careful of bees this time of year, i guess. nobody thinks about them. >> look at our cards. we always come out here with cards. now, look what we have. >> are they the same? >> they are all the same. >> it's cuter. your bra strap is showing. >> i know. i can't help it. >> how was your weekend? >> my weekend was fine. i saw the james gandolfini movie. if you're sending your kids off to college, there is a scene that will kill you. it killed me and i don't have kids. it's a beautiful movie. it's hard watching james gandolfini knowing that. if you are a carpool mom and you have to take kids and drop them off, this is a question in
the social q's column of "the new york times." one mother picked up her son and her son's friends from a stinky practice. >> they reek, especially around 15. >> so 40-minute drive with stinky in the back. >> four of them. that means eight feet. >> she says the smell in the car by the time she gets home is unbearable. she wanted to say something and her son said she would be mortified if he said anything to his friends. right now she drives with the windows open. >> try that in the dead of winter. maybe they won't be as stinky in the dead of winter. then they do basketball. >> there is something about that age kid and sweating. it is nasty. >> you get beyond that. i would get so angry with cody taking his shoes off and all his friends the minute they walked in our house and they're right there can i tell you how happy it makes me when he's home and his friends come and visit? i fill it up and leave it there everything's relative.
the smell is negotiable. >> commenting on a person's odor is exquisitely delicate. >> we know that, philip. >> his advice is talk to the four boys together and say, listen, boys, you reek. ask them to towel off and take their shirts off before they get in the car and put on a clean shirt. forget it. >> you can't cover up body odor. i've got to clean it. you can't spray something on it. >> if you've ever ridden in a new york cab, i'm not kidding. look, i'm the first one to jump in a cab. i've been in some cabs that is b.o. coated with cologne. the window is open, my head's hanging out the window like a dog. like a dog. i'd rather risk an accident out there than be inside with all that. it's not great. >> there is a new survey that's
going to make you feel good, hoda. it says cheating feels fantastic. >> that's rude. >> university of washington harvard london business cool and penn all joined forces to study cheating. >> cheating in general, when you lie you get a high. when you cheat, it's like you can't believe, like the forbidden fruit. you got away with it. >> but they didn't get away with it. >> i'm sure it's helped some people feel, oh, my god, it's so risky, you have a high until it all comes crashing down and ruins your life. >> then you want people to feel sorry for you. >> then the guilt isn't real guilt. they say it's a figment of your imagination after you had the natural high. >> all those smart people must be right. >> you know who is on our show and can tell us what we are dealing with? sin, it's the sin in your life, franklin graham is with us today. he's got an answer for the sin in your life and the sin in
hoda's. >> what about the sin in yours? >> i am all prayed up as of this morning. i'm clean as a whistle. >> you do understand in the rush of doing it -- you've gotten away with something. >> you know what? i have and it's a burden in life. i have a conscience. i know a lot of you don't have one. i have like jiminy cricket in my ear. >> let's say you play ring and run. you ring the door bell, got away with it. i got away with it, the high. you're not thinking about the person trudging to the door. >> with a bee sting and can hardly walk. >> it's a rush like when you toilet paper someone's house and run away. like that, the heart-pounding excitement. is it showing? >> it's still showing. >> all righty. this is sad, but it makes sense. there is a new poll again that says 1/3 of all people, i guess in america or in the world, i
don't know, cannot recognize their neighbors. in the uk. by churchill home insurance company who want you to know your neighbors, they found 1/3 of the people could not identify their next door neighbors by sight. >> more than half couldn't recall their first names. >> yeah. >> when i lived in neighborhoods like in the suburbs and stuff, you know your neighbors, i did. in new york it's harder. it's a apartment living. there are 15 apartments on your floor. we get up early. we don't see them or know them. >> i'm not at that apartment very often. >> you know your neighbors. >> at home i sure do. you know when i got to know them well? last year during hurricane sandy. we didn't evacuate because our house withstood many, many storms since the 1920s. we went around the neighborhood and asked who is going to stay and ride it out. almost all were. they all came to our house and stayed a week.
>> you got to know them. >> they are really great people. in a weird way, we bonded, we were all good neighbors to one another before that. after that, it's like such a bond. >> that's great. >> cleaned out my wine cellar, didn't you? >> last week i picked an ihoda we love. it's by sara bareilles. it's a song called "brave." there is a children's hospital that did their own video to the song "brave." there is a great line that says, show me how big your brave is. let's take a look at this video. ♪ you can be amazing you can be an outcast be a backlash ♪ some bodies lack in love ♪ ♪ or you can start ♪ let the words call out

we are back now with the joy fit club. a woman who gave up her emotional eating to drop nearly half her weight. 24-year-old lauren from huntington, west virginia stepped on the scale and saw 357 pounds. show did something about it. we are going to meet her in a moment. first, let's listen to her story. >> my name is lauren and i once weighed 357 pounds. i was always known for being a diva and had all the attitude to go along with it. behind the sass and fake smiles, i can honestly say i didn't like myself. i hated that i let food control my life and i hated that no matter how hard i tried to lose weight, i still didn't see any results. my bat will my weight began so early in life. what is on a diet by the age of 8 and grew up being the fat girl. by 16 i started training in hopes of playing high school volleyball. in the process i experienced many physical setbacks including foot and knee injuries that landed me in a wheelchair multiple times. however, i never gave up.
i fell off for a few weeks and binge on anything i could get my hands on, but i would always try again. it wasn't until i got my overall health under control and attended a weight loss retreat i truly began to deal with my emotional binge eating. it was there i learned how to let food fuel me and not control me. two years and 175 pounds later, i can honestly say for the first time in my life, i am comfortable in my own skin. i love who i am inside and out, and most importantly, i feel free. >> that is so great. joy bauer is the leader of the joy fit club. >> i'm so worried about your foot. >> i'm soaking in pickle juice. someone said put your foot in pickle juice. so we are test driving it to see if it works. >> for two hours. take it to the movies afterwards. >> this girl is unreal. not only did she lose all of this weight, but when she comes out here, she is going to show
you a special sort of skill she has now. she is a power lifter. i want to show you a snapshot of what she eats in a day to keep up with her workout habit. she has about 2,000 calories. breakfast, tortilla stuffed with egg whites, salsa and spinach. lunch a great big salad. now she cuts back on the starchy carbs. lettuce leaves with goat cheese, salmon. she googled and found my recipe for greens in a glass and uses this as a recovery shake after she works out. i'll tweet this out after the show. for dinner she has a great big stir fry of vegetables, avocado and chicken. >> let's look at lauren's before picture. lauren, come join the joe fit club. >> those are her old pants. >> oh, my gosh. look at you. >> take those off.
>> you look great. >> that is just fantastic. >> is she incredible? >> i'm great. how are you? >> how long has this been going on? >> what? >> losing the weight. >> took me about a year and a half to lose it all. but here i am. >> this is 115 pounds. >> you can lift that up? >> she can do it. >> thanks. >> cute. >> be careful, hon. >> what? >> you rock. >> thank you. >> and you use these dumbbells? >> i sure do. joy told me you complain about your lunges. >> want me to show you a circuit i like to work on? >> show while we go to commercial. >> i take it up here, do a shoulder press, take it out and hit that full extension. >> you look awesome. >> thank you. >> thank you for coming to see us. >> thank you for having me. >> i want to thank our facebook
billy graham has been preaching more than seven decades reaching tens of millions of people around the world. he's been a confidante to more than ten u.s. presidents, a friend to me for all these years. he just finished writing his 32nd book. you think you've written some, hoda? it's called "the reason for my hope." >> here to tell us all about it is billy's son franklin graham, president and ceo of the billy graham evangelical association.
>> this is the best he's done. at 95, he's slowing down, but he's not quitting. i tried to get him to go out and get a hamburger. he says i just want to stay home. >> this is not a compilation book. this isn't the best bits, this is all new material. >> it's all new. he worked for over a year on it. he just did a great job. this is really from his heart. he realizes at 95, he doesn't have many days left. he wants to leave with another generation, he wants them to know the truth about god's love for us. we live in a world where people think, well, okay, i am a christian, i believe in god and i believe in jesus, but they don't want to follow him. they don't want to live for him. he wants them to understand there are consequences to sin.
the bible says all of us have sinned. every one of us is guilty, but god loves us. >> there is a feeling god wants to keep all the good stuff away from us and it's the exact opposite of that, isn't it? his word has a purpose to follow it and you will have abundance and joy in your life. >> absolutely. we've all sinned and become short of god's standard. the wages of sin is death. but god so loved you and me he gave his son. if we just put our faith and trust in him, he will forgive us and heal our hearts. >> and make us new creatures. >> and show his plan and purpose for our lives. it's a great book. he's got a film on november 7th "my hope america with billy graham." >> i'm going down for his birthday party november 7th. >> tell us about the film. >> it's a 30-minute film. it's the best thing he's ever done. my father gives a very clear plan of salvation. he is so clear and articulate. he is in his home and talking to you.
he's not standing behind the pulpit preaching. it is powerful. >> how is he doing? >> he's doing pretty good. if you asked him, he would say, i'm doing terrible. he's 95, but his mind is crystal clear. this book and the film "my hope america with billy graham" is the best he's done. >> there is a particular chapter in this book that was extraordinary to me. it goes through historically what other people have said about jesus, which was fascinating and really interesting. there is less known about julius caesar than about jesus of nazareth. most people easily believe everything about julius caesar, but not christ, why is that? >> the devil is very clever how he masked over this and people avoid christ. there is more evidence jesus lived than caesar. the fact is jesus came to this earth for sinners. that is how much god loves us. he gave his son to be the sacrifice for our sins. we trust him and put our faith in him, god will forgive us and heal our hearts.
