  • You have such a beautiful face! Those eyes are to die for. Congratulations on your loss. Keep up the great work.
  • You're beautiful and they are jealous. If you feel good at this weight, then enjoy it and let them wallow in their jealousy.
  • Wow, I go at 4.0 on my treadmill and I always called it fast walking. I can now call it jogging! :)
  • I started smoking when I was 13. I was up to two packs a day by 17 years of age. I quit in my late 20s after my physician told me that I wouldn't make it to 35 if I kept smoking. I am 57 now and still crave a cigarette now and then, especially when stressed. Unfortunately, these last few months have been extremely…

  • You've Got Mail
  • Why do people keep asking what the age of these bullies is? The youngest is 20 and the oldest is 35. Yes, I call the 35 year a bully because standing by and not doing something about it means that she is condoning the behavior. Giggling at the jokes means she is definitely supporting what they are doing. As I mentioned…
  • If you take it public, who's the bully then? This happened with a headhunter and a person looking for a job through linked-in. The headhunter emailed a not so nice reply to the job-seeker who then took it public. Both were being called bullies and I would have to agree.
  • You are not the only one is my point. This is happening everywhere. It is a different type of bullying than what I grew up with. I am 57 and was bullied from 6th grade on because I had a size D cup, but it was only name calling. At one point, I did get one of the bullies alone and I beat her up and gave her a swirly. These…
  • First off, don't lower yourself to their level by making jokes about them. You are better than that. Second, I teach at night school and I have overheard students do this to other students. A good teacher will intervene and make sure that it doesn't happen again. These girls are bullying you and you have the right to be…
  • This! I also see it as part of my workout.
  • I like how many are reading into this guy's thoughts and feelings ("He's embarassed at being called out."). How do you know that? I like to give the benefit of doubt - Maybe he is new to lifting (although doubtful at what he was lifting) and didn't know you need to remove the weights or maybe he didn't see the sign. Maybe…
  • I agree with many in that it depends on what it is that you are trying to make a habit. I have always heard six weeks. Of course that depends on whether you have succeeded at committing to the habit before. Thus, new habits may take longer to become a habit than a habit that you just fell off the wagon with, which is…
  • Did I really just waste time reading this? Really. That is like 500 calories of food. You need to log your food and become concerned about eating healthy and not about fitting into a size 4 pair of jeans. You also need to get professional assistance because you are headed toward an eating disorder. Good luck!
  • Just do what I had to do with my coworker: Make a list of those things that you will not talk about with him. My list for my coworker includes: religion, politics, and vaccinations. Saves a lot of time arguing. If she brings one of those things up, I just say, "Come on, now, you know that is on the verboten list".
  • Although I approve of most of the changes, esp. the potassium addition, I don't think that this is going to help the obesity problem. Those who are obese and are not watching their intake are not going to read the label for the food that they are going to eat. This change will only help those who are interested in changing…
  • For the same reason we have people shooting people over texting during previews in the movie theater or because the people in the car they parked close to is booming their music too loud. People seem to want control over everyone else, but they lack the ability to control themselves.
  • One of the best things that I ever did was to eat protein big-time for breakfast. I find that I no longer eat a snack in the AM, am getting all my protein needs fairly well met, and tend to be fuller throughout the entire day. I used to eat oatmeal in the morning, but found that it just did not 'hold' me until lunchtime. I…
  • If you don't like salads, just don't eat them. Personally, I use spring mix when I make a salad (Romaine on occasion) because it tastes better than iceberg lettuce. I will put spring mix on my plate, add mandarin oranges, raw strawberries (cut), pecans (crumbled) and grapes. I usually add chicken breast, but you don't need…
  • So sorry for your loss. I have been there as I lost my second child to seizures brought on by the MMR vaccination. You will always feel the loss, but it becomes less painful over time. I recommend joining a support group for grieving parents. I found it extremely helpful during the first year after Adam's death.
  • I like Netflix because you don't have to put up with commercials. Plan and simple. Way too many commercials are shown during television shows.
  • I am pretty tolerant about restaurant issues since I used to be a waitress. As a mother, I am pretty tolerant of children, too. The one thing that I am not tolerant of are restaurants that believe that their patrons are stupid and unable to understand a menu. I have a gluten allergy and will ask if a restaurant has a…
  • I have two adult children, both fairly successful. There are natural consequences, like failing the class. Discuss the issue with the teacher and make it understood that you expect the teacher to fail your son if he is not doing the work. I did that and my son failed one class. He is currently in the Army Reserves, has…
  • This gives me a reason to reply. I am 5'2" and I used to weigh 294 pounds. I had trouble getting up stairs, in cars, and a whole lot more. Going for a walk filled me with trepidation because it would take so much energy. I also had a ruptured disk or two in my lower back. I currently weigh 209 pounds. I lift at the gym and…
  • No, because if I have a problem with someone, I say it to their face, not via texts, email, phone calls, etc. Then it is done and over with and I discuss it no more. I don't discuss problems that I have with someone with other people. Period. I don't put awkward things on text, emails, etc. Pluse I don't swear via those…
  • That is exactly what it is like. Just a half-hour ago, I was saying to myself that apple dumplings (about 800 calories each) sound so good right now. I got out the recipe books and started looking for the recipe. Then something just occurred to me - I've been so good for the last four days, why blow it now. I could have…
  • A 'couple' of things that I learned from my Lunch and Learn series: 1. Try the "If....Then..." strategy. For example: "If I 'm going to have a piece of birthday cake, then I'm going to make sure I get in a 30-minutes walk today." Better yet, don't eat any cake and just go for the walk. Exercise is a natural craving and…
  • Plus, men lose weight easier than women. Something about muscles and testosterone.
