  • Ah, your clarification makes sense. I totally agree that it would not apply to vast majority of the population. I come from west central IL (moved north after HS)- it would be near impossible to get anywhere without a vehicle or someone who owns a vehicle to drive you around. Rural area, no public transportation, 10+ miles…
  • Poster lives in Chicago, where they reference living for 14 years before owning a car. Don’t think there was a general statement being made about vehicle ownership outside of experience in the city. I live in the suburbs and drilled (military) like 20 miles South of downtown Chicago for the last 5 years, a lot of my…
  • 21” waist didn’t seem feasible to me. After a quick google search to even see what that would look like, everything seemed to show waist trainers. After looking through a handful of pictures that showed before/after shots (most said 26”-28” before), I must say that the before shots looked better. I’m not trying to sound…
  • I don’t think CICO’s simplicity makes it misleading and unhelpful. Misunderstanding CICO is misleading and unhelpful. CICO is a simple mathematic equation. Each individual needs to decide what they want the result of the equation to be (loss, gain, maintain). Once that is figured out each individual needs to determine the…
  • First of all, I’m happy to hear your accident wasn’t worse, but so sorry you’ve had to experience one! Glad you are on the mend and making strides in your recovery! Is it possible for your doctor to refer you to physical therapy? I’m sure a PT would have great insight into exercises you could do at home to help with the…
  • Seems like the highlighted section is a good place to start… doesn’t have to be to lose weight, build muscle, or to change your body. Happiness is probably the best goal you can set. If physical health isn’t motivation for you, then improved mental health should be. Just some food for thought…
  • Ooooh same… if 3 of us split a bag is it reeeeaaally that bad?! If I growl at you I swear I don’t mean it!
  • I haven’t seen this recommended and due to the liability it may not be possible, but a thought I had so I’ll throw it out there. I know you’re all released of liability as long as she works out on her own, not sure if there’s a clause anywhere in the gym contract that also individually protects trainers of liability. But…
  • I don’t understand how going to the gym and watching what we eat to improve appearance somehow makes it invalid for a woman to get offended by unsolicited comments?! The effort I put into me is for me, not the public. I also hear way more people talk about working out/dieting for improved health opposed to improved…
  • I’m from the camp of I’m a woman and have received plenty of unsolicited compliments, comments, statements, etc throughout my life. I really do try to take that stance- dealing with individuals individually. I’m also someone who is pretty hard to offend. I try to take note of the individual’s intention behind their…
  • It doesn’t seem like you’re being creep, and are trying to be sincerely nice. Since you said “acquaintance” I take it as this is someone you’ve interacted with at the gym previously. (If no previous interaction, I probably wouldn’t say anything). I think saying something along the lines of... hey there, haven’t seen you in…
  • Obligatory *not a doctor* Will also echo above comments- please follow up with your new doctor (hopefully this doctor is an OBGYN, and not a GP- you’ll get better reproductive health care that way)! Now that I’ve said that, I’ll share my personal experience with period loss. When I went to Army basic training (around 3…
  • Is there an “accountability tool” that works for you? Like I do handwritten lists, it gives me something I can see and touch as a reminder. If I really needed to get into that level of accountability I’d write down a list by day that I can keep track of by completing, checking off, etc. (no takeout, ride your bike, 5 days…
  • I think many of Demi’s struggles have come from that alone... she’s always been treated as a product. She had a team that started treating her like a defective product as she was coming into adulthood- they restricted her food to the point of not even letting her have a birthday cake. I truly empathize with her journey and…
  • I could really go for some fresh out of the oven monster cookies or oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! 🍪🍪🍪
  • 🤤 I never knew I NEEDED this!!! (Minus milk- you can have all that!) lol
  • The problem with the soft approach suggested is food sitting around a vaccination site. I definitely wouldn’t want a donut from a tray sitting out around a bunch of people or at a vaccination site. Did someone sneeze on them? Did that person wash their hands before reaching into the box of donuts? Then how many people are…
  • Yikes... I think you’ve over-served yourself. Step awaaay from the kool aid!
  • https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usatoday.com/amp/4509219001 “Eating disorders thrive in isolation.” Halfway through the article it’s states this and goes a bit deeper into why many people struggled through the pandemic. Congratulations, you aren’t one of them!! Also... person-in-environment perspective...…
  • I’d just use the database entries for rat poison and bleach... be sure to double the serving size of both to be sure you aren’t underestimating. Close enough! On second thought, if you request the keto friendly version that’s also gluten and dairy free, you may want to ask for an ingredient list to ensure accurate logging!…
  • Well thanks for the input everyone! It’s settled... I’m not getting vaccinated! As a mother of 3 little ones, I was only doing it in hopes I’d grow an additional set of arms! Now that you have all enlightened me to your (and family members, friends, and acquaintances) lack of such side effects, I am no longer interested.…
  • Dang! Sorry about your luck! You’re scheduled for yours soon... maybe your dose will come with signal boost or new hunger for brains! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you! Keep an eye out over the next couple months, with no long term studies it could take up to 6 months for either of you to sprout a new baby arm at…
  • This is why I love the “I don’t live my life in fear...” defense. Half the time any “evidence” is provided it is a BS Facebook fear mongering meme! You’d think these vaccines were made by meth heads in a van behind a planned parenthood where they are collecting aborted babies that are just tossed in a dumpster in the…
  • Kill ‘em with kindness! 😂😂😂
  • I really think this is something to do with nostalgia! Memories related to the senses... McDonalds breakfast like the pictured were a “treat” we got as kids when we went grocery shopping with my mom on the weekend. So many memories come back to me seeing them! There is some childhood comfort that is sparked by the cheap…
