I went shopping for a dress to wear to my daughter’s high school graduation half
a year ago. To my horror, I could only fit into a size 20.
Being overweight most of my adult life, I always had very little self-confidence. Wearing a dress I didn’t like to such an important event was enough to make me look for help. Thankfully, a friend of mine was attending Weight Watchers meetings, and
I noticed her great progress. Her success inspired me to give it a try. I joined Weight Watchers, attended their meetings and started following their Weight-Loss System.
I focused on the plan with determination and never missed a weekly meeting! I discovered that I enjoyed the benefits of having the help and support of others. I also read the weekly online e-newsletter and was inspired by the stories, recipes and information offered there, I also read magazines produced by Weight Watchers, which have great tips and new ideas in each issue.
It’s hard for me to even remember the person I was before my amazing change. I didn’t walk anywhere and couldn’t wash my car or walk my dog. Today I do these simple tasks without even thinking about them. But the change didn’t happen overnight. I had to exercise with patience and perseverance(坚持). I decided to take it one day at a time and stick with if for good.
The “new me” is more self-confident and healthier. I love how I feel now. I have more energy and feel like I’m 25 again. So why not give Weight Watchers a try if you have the same overweight problem?

Most of the time, people wear hats to protect themselves from harsh weather conditions. Hats are also worn to show politeness and as signs of social position. But nowadays, hats, especially women's hats, are much more than that. More exactly, hats have changed into fashion and style symbols by many movie stars. What's more, people now consider many different features(特点) when choosing even a simple hat. Many designers point out that, when choosing the right hat, it's important to consider the color of your skin as well as your hair, your height, and the shape of your face.
First of all, the color of the hat should match the color of your skin and hair. For instance, black hats should be avoided if you are dark skinned. If a purple hat is placed on top of red hair, one will look as attractive as a summer flower. Second, the height of the hat is also an important point. Tall women should not go for hats with tall crowns, just as short women should choose hats with upturned brims to give
the look of height. Third, and most importantly, the shape of the face decides the kind of hat one should pick. A small, gentle hat that fits the head looks good on
a small face. However, women with big, round faces should choose a different style.
As the saying goes, "Fine feathers make fine birds." A good hat can not only help your dress but also support your features, so why not choose the best possible one next time you want to be in public?
63. What does the underlined word “harsh” in Paragraph 1 probably mean?
64. According to the article, which of the following women would look most attractive?
A. A big-faced woman who wears a small, nice hat.
B. A short red-haired woman who wears a purple hat.
C. A tall woman who wears a hat with a huge upturned brim.
D. A small dark-skinned woman who wears a black hat with a tall crown.
65.What does the last paragraph suggest?
A. Hats are worn on the head to keep warm.
B. Hats can help you look better in public.
C. Hats are not as important as character.
D. Hats can make you look much taller.
66. What is the best title for the article?

B. How to Improve Your Features.
C. How to Choose a Proper Hat.
D. How to Design a Nice Hat.
Bottled water has become the choice for people who are healthy and thirsty. Bottled water is all over the world. But some say the planet’s health, and people’
s health may be suffering from it.
The idea that bottled water is safer for humans may not be true. The Natural Resources Defense Council of America said, “There is no promise that because water comes out of a bottle, it is cleaner or safer than water from the tap.”Another New York City-based action group added that some bottled water is “really just tap water
in a bottle—sometimes more clean, sometimes not.”
It is not proven that bottled water is better than tap water. Nick Reeves from
the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management said, “The high mineral content(含量) of some bottled water makes them not good for feeding babies
and young children.” Also, most bottled water doesn’t have fluoride(氟化物), which
can make teeth stronger. Kids are drinking more bottled water and less fluoridated
tap water, and some say that’s behind the recent rise in bad teeth.
Storing is another problem. Placed near heat, the plastic bottles can produce bad chemicals(化学物质) into the water.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, some 2.7 million tons of plastic are used worldwide to bottle water each year. The plastic can take between 400 and 1,000 years to break down.
In terms of energy use, plastic bottles are also not cheap. One report said that if water and soft drink bottlers had used 10 percent recycled materials in their plastic bottles, they would have saved about 72 million gallons of gas.
So, if you are worried about the effect of bottled water on the Earth, you can take the following steps.
●Drink from your tap. Unless your government warns against this, it should be fine.
●Get a container(容器). Carry your tap water in a steel or a lined drinking
container, and clean it between uses.
●Keep it cool. Don’t drink from a bottle that has been sitting in the sun, don’
t store it near chemicals, and don’t reuse plastic bottles.
●Choose glass containers over plastic if possible. When finished, recycle!

68. What can we learn about plastic bottles from the article?
A. They break down in less than 300 years.
B. They can be used for many other things.
C. They are a risk to the environment.
D. They are cheap to make.

I’m glad to know that you are coming to China with your parents and spend the Spring Festival here. The Spring Festival is one of the most important traditional festivals in China. It has a long history. It is said that ancient people celebrated it to drive a demon, Nian away. It falls on the first day of the lunar year and lasts 15 days. During the Spring Festival, we have many activities. People usually put on couplets and set off firecrackers. Children are most excited because they can receive lucky money.
As for my family, it’s a time of reunion and relaxation. In the evening before the Spring Festival, all my relatives will get together and have a big meal. During the following days we not only visit our friends but also go to temple fairs to buy all kinds of things. All of us enjoy this festival and I’m sure you will have fun if you come.
Hope to see you soon!
Yours, Li Hua
