  • Even if you can't book a full session with a trainer, I know that at least at my gym (an Anytime Fitness) I can always stick my head into the office and ask one of the trainers a quick question if they don't have a client at that moment. I explained that I had taken a long break from working out (had to get sober after I…
  • I still haven't figured out how to post to the Newsfeed without going to my Profile in the app first. 🙁
  • I try to make it as inconvenient as possible to binge. I'm the primary grocery shopper in my household, so I buy chips and snacks that my husband and kiddo like but I don't, even when I turn into a hungry hormonal werewolf once a month, so there's nothing easy or mindless for me to eat from the pantry without making the…
  • When I was in the Army, I knew quite a few guys who shaved their legs. Not weird, came from a variety of backgrounds. There was one subset of dudes who also shaved their arms (NOT their armpits, I mean FOREARMS), and that... that was a little odd, because of how fast it grew back. Like, they'd have five o'clock shadows on…
  • I'm genderqueer but not out IRL. I wanted to try to drop some weight to see if that helped unfemme my presentation, but my body looks even more girly these days (a little bit slimmer in the face, neck, thighs and arms, but my silhouette is *hourglass*). I'm also prepping for a pregnancy, which will be... I mean, I'm hoping…
  • For the first time ever, my doctor said I was getting enough vitamin D🥹
  • My Italian Sweet Cream creamer is 35 calories per TABLESPOON, bro. 2 ounces of whole milk only adds, like, 38 calories. To hit 400 calories, I'd have to be drinking a whole 12-cup pot of coffee by myself, everyday. You don't need black coffee; at that point, you just need LESS coffee.
  • I don't have much to lose weight-wise, but I've been struggling to find my sense of beauty and feel pretty again. I've naturally got an hourglass figure, but it doesn't look as impressive on a short girl as it does a tall girl, imo, and I can't seem to find that 'happy-or-ambivalent' feeling I used to have for my chest. :\…
  • I'm a big Ace Attorney fan, and I keep telling myself to finish DGS now that it has an English release, but the first two cases were such a draaaaag and I don't like the protagonist (first time in this series! Normally I love everyone!!). Even the Layton crossover game was more engaging than this one *cries*
  • I like Headspace. I tried Ten Percent Happier, but it's a little too... ?? Idk but I definitely felt like I was not the target audience with that one.
  • It's literally oatmeal...? I mean, I've seen some crazy s'mores ones, but nobody says you have to put a bunch of chocolate and sugar on it🤷🏻‍♀️
  • I really feel like it depends. If it's a soft touch, I like it, it can be a flattering reminder that "oh yeah, hey, I am conventionally pretty," but the flip side is that coming on too strong is super gross and triggers my flirt-and-flight response (I don't wanna fight, getting hit in the face hurts). I've had guys try to…
  • "Cowboy up" is a phrase much like "toughen up, buttercup" or "quit whining": where I'm at, it does not necessarily mean that you're not already a man (unlike the way the phrase "man up" might). I have no idea what your free time situation looks like, or what your chore distribution is; I was using an example of the two…
  • You are so quick to your own defense that you're accusing yourself of being things I haven't said. I don't think you're heartless, or selfish, or sexist. I think you're mad and upset that *you* can't fix your wife's motivation problem with an expense gift. I'm saying that I think you'll be happier if you shift your focus.…
  • Two or three days. I don't have much of a sense of smell, so I can't trust a Sniff Test to tell me if it's still good.
  • SO GIVE HER TIME. Seriously. Stop being upset and problem solve. Oh, she can't work out because she needs to do the dishes? Cowboy up like a truly sexy man and say, "Hey, babe, let me clean up dinner and do the dishes while you work out." Also works for laundry! Team work makes the dream work, and all that. It's easy to…
  • At 4 weeks, my doctor didn't even want me to take a bath, let alone workout, and I had a complication-free pregnancy and delivery. My daughter is almost 4yrs old now, but I remember how strange and soft I was in those first few weeks; I hated the way my body looked. Part of that is just that you need to give your body time…
  • So, I'm in the process of reading The Secret Lives of Wives, and this is a topic that comes up. I'm not the obese partner in my marriage, but I am still in the same boat as you with the not-talking and the "but hey do you still even like me at this point??" feeling. And everything I've heard from other women who have…
  • Yeah, as a fellow skinny-fat kid, I'd say you probably want to set your own calorie goals, especially because you're actually looking to recomp your body and not to necessarily lose weight. I'm really steady on my weight but my BF% can vary and my "fit at 125lbs" looks VERY DIFFERENT from my "fat at 125lbs". Another good…
  • Love & Lemons! She has two, and it also includes things like: HOW TO PREP THAT VEGETABLE uuuuuggggghhhh I cannot tell you how many times I would find a recipe for something that sounded good but there was NOTHING in the instructions on how to prep it, or how to use the leftovers.
  • Skinnyfat kids like me know that this isn't true, because being skinny still feels like being out of breath after taking the stairs😜
  • I'm so glad you talked with your daughter, and that you've found a compromise that works for you both. My sibling's wife and I have been friends for a long time, and I know that I sometimes put my foot in my mouth still with regard to talking about disabilities and accessibility, so I'm sorry for putting you on the…
  • My sibling's wife had this hang up, too, especially when they got her wheelchair (she broke her spine as a kid, and no one ever caught it or fixed it, so now her back is just a constant source of pain). It took her a while to be willing to take the wheelchair to different places, because she felt like it was a reminder…
  • I've found that while the Randall's in my area is more expensive for just about everything, they have GREAT deals on meat. Lots of "Buy One Get One Free" or "Half Off," and they regularly do mark downs to get rid of meat before it goes bad, more so than any of the other grocery stores nearby. I haven't worked up the…
  • Oh, you're not that much taller than me! I'm so excited to look up the site; so often, when I find cute leggings they're way too long and end up all bunchy around my ankles. Thanks!!
  • Uh, do they make that in short girl sizes??? Because it is adorable and I need that set in my life, time now
  • So I've been trying for days to figure out how to talk about this feeling, and I keep coming back to your reply, because I think this says it a lot better than my original "feeling pretty" question. Because at its core, I'm not really talking about a feeling that I can expect from a luxurious bubble bath or doing my makeup…
  • I asked the trainer at my gym to show me proper squat form and a couple of variations (bar, hex, resistance bands, dumbbells) that I can work up to as my knees get stronger. I was really nervous to ask, because it's been so long since I did any lifting (like... college, and gym culture was super gross and demeaning back…
