  • I had a talk with my son yesterday after he came in from school. He said he had a good day, and that he doe not like pop tarts anymore and wont bother me for them when we go to the store. I told him he can still like them and no one will be mean to him. He says he will think about it. Folks, it was never ever about the…
  • "You dont seem particularly open to anything other than agreement here in this forum" Wow, you have trivialized everything I've said from the OP. Please dont think that I am not open to hearing your opinions. I dont know it all. I am listening but this goes both ways. I am doing the best to convey open dialogue, I'm sorry…
  • I think this was the second time he took the pop tart, as I said he usually takes either fruit or a fruit cup. The first time he took it I heard nothing. Which was a few weeks ago because I'd just purchased the box. He took another one yesterday, I opened his lunch box after school and it was in there. Thats when he told…
  • What part of I just found out yesterday he wasn't eating did you not understand? You keep saying the teacher asked me not to send them? No, she has not asked me anything. Thats the problem, no one has said anything to me about what exactly is the ideal snack before hand. If they had a definitive list of not allowed snacks…
  • How am I perpetuating the problem? I just wrote verbatim what was said along the snack and lunch guidelines, ie what to send. I also am not nor have I dug my heels about it? What rules have I decided not to follow and decided to "let him be afraid or hungry? I have no problem with following the guidelines. But dictating…
  • They sent a note saying we had to provide two snacks plus lunch for the child. I didnt see anything specifying what was an acceptable healthy snack item. We just cant send nuts, or seafood.
  • Just want to add that I mostly send fruit with him. We buy fruit in small quantity because it will go bad. He at least will not be like me thinking you get two pop tarts per serving (I really thought you got two). He only gets one and the box lasts like two weeks. :D
  • I think I'm more disturbed by the fact that he's been sitting there hungry and afraid to be judged for not eating healthy food. Who wants their child to be afraid to eat and go hungry? This is how food disorders begin.
  • I dont eat them either. The kid loves them. I will have to speak to the director because she says its the school's policy. But who gets to say whats healthy, or not is my thing.
  • I have about 10 more pounds of fat to lose. Nearly all of it is belly fat. Its been 9.5 months of dieting and 43 pounds down. I have only since started to visualize what many say about problem areas literally being the last to go. These folks aren't lying. There's seriously nothing but belly fat left on me to lose. I hope…
  • You look good girl! I cant get my stomach to look like that and I am down to 130. I would gladly go back to 149 gladly if I could have a "sucked in" stomach like yours. Plus at 149 I would get to eat more. You have better body composition than most. Your heavy lifting is winning no matter what the scale says! I wish you…
  • I wish I could reverse my crappy apple shaped genetics. I dont care what anyone says, pears and hour glass women are lucky. Lmao! I see many pears complain about thighs and booty! I wish that a had a booty to speak of. That vanished as soon as my crappy genetics found out I was eating less. How can you lose five pounds of…
  • I stalled for 6 weeks after losing 20 pounds. I came to mfp asking for help because I was doing everything the same. I weighed my food religiously, logged every bite, increased exercise and nothing for 6 weeks. Many would have given up and said screw this mess! Being as I have my daddys stubborn will I kept plodding along.…
  • I dont get joint pain but I get an upset stomach from splenda. I was using it to sweetened my daily cups of tea when it started. I use real sugar again.
  • See I dont play that passive agressive, lets pretend you aint talkin about me stuff. Your mil needs to be told to shut up. I dont know if your husband was around when his mother was low key shading you, or if you expressed your angst about her mouth to him? He needs to handle his mother. She'd get a warning to please keep…
  • For those wanting lower calorie pasta Ronzoni 150 calories per serving
  • I dont change the entries either. I weigh the food, check the macros are correct and leave it as such. I also divide my servings by the gram. I had someone nearly blow a gasket because I log many entries by dividing the grams eaten by serving size in grams. They saw 2.7 turkey sausage and thought I went crazy. :D Some…
  • I can go days without weighing myself. I dont care how much I weigh right now because I only have fat to lose in my stomach. I am focused on weight lifting and losing inches at this point. I use my measuring tape once a week. My food scale is enough right now, because I weigh everything I eat I know I'm on track.
  • Its called "gaslighting". Honestly, your husband is displaying narc aka narcisist behavior. If you are in fact are dealing with a narc you and your kids are in for it. Trust your instincts and get your ducks in a row.
  • I think it depends on where your mind is at the moment. People go through days of ups and downs during weight loss. Some days there is nothing remotely easy about dieting. I've said to myself "self we aint never, ever, ever ever doing this again". Then, I have a all time low weigh in as an adult and say I knew we could do…
  • Those who throw out perfectly good candy, do you feel bad? I mean people spend money for the children to be able to get a treat, is that not wasteful? Why not just limit the amount of doors the kiddies knock on to limit the amount of treats received? Or maybe I'm just sensitive to wasted food in America. :)
  • Maryanne is at the bottom of the message?
  • Yeah I agree, thats why I said pear shape women "often" have flat stomachs. I have fibroids and have had two kids. So even with years of hard work I would have to pay for abs (lipo) to get them. I think genetics is underrated by a lot of people.
  • Pear shaped women often have flat stomachs even at higher weights. My friend weighs 190 pounds she's pear shaped, carries most fat in here thighs and butt. I weigh 136 pounds and am apple shaped. I gain all of my fat in my stomach. My friends stomach is flatter than mine. I problably wont ever have a six pack because I…
  • Not this much, I was doing community work and walked all day. My feet hurt lol!
  • Just add water to the soup to reduce the sodium. Then add some garlic powder or dry herb to add flavor, get well.
  • Oh and I have discovered Pod casts :D
  • When I get bored from cutting this usually means I've been in my own little bubble of head space too much and its time to see what others are doing. So I've been looking up the top experts works in the fitness industry, new studies and the people making strides on youtube. I'm new to lifting so thats exciting seeing any…
