  • Depending on the situation, the following in some order: a walk or gym trip, a nap, some horizontal fun time with either husband or alone, a self-indulgent Netflix session with some snacks, and a grocery trip for some healthy yet delicious meals for the next couple of days.
  • YAY the results came in quickly, I’m clear! No diabetes! I could do a little happy dance.
  • Glucose screening test done! It wasn’t as bad as I feared, and didn’t have any issues with passing out. I guess the last two times were due to the heat wave, I’m really happy today was a cooler day. Now I feel almost back to normal after two snacks and a nap. I was too anxious about the test itself earlier, but now I can…
  • Great losses, and great reflection on some gains! The last week of summer vacation is here, and it’s shaping up to be a nice week! The weather has cooled down for at least a few days, it’s still nice and summery but the prospect of putting clothes on isn’t daunting. I spent most of last week half-naked in front of a fan…
  • Yay, lots of great results posted! @SisuMom2019 I share your pain with meal planning and junky food… previously we were pretty good with meal planning and only going to the grocery store once or twice a week. Then we moved into an apartment that’s a 2-minute walk from a 24/7 grocery store and I got pregnant with severe…
  • We’re going on a holiday trip today! Traveling is limited to domestic and I definitely don’t want to fly anymore, but we’re going to a spa near a medieval coastal town I’ve only visited twice in my life. We’re taking an old-time 100-year old ship there, staying two nights at the spa hotel and making a day trip to the town.…
  • @Nature003Life that’s a really interesting question! For me, it’s not really a trauma about emotional eating, but a combination of a few childhood things. The only singular event I can pinpoint is the one time I missed my curfew as a little kid (I was at my friend’s house pretty much next door and walked home on my own so…
  • @Beka3695 how long ago was your race? Any other significant/different physical activity that could cause wear and tear? Sounds like it could be a muscle thing instead of a stomach thing, with an evening meal making it appear because of the weight/volume of the food stretching your stomach. Admittedly I don’t live with US…
  • I used to be a daily weigher too, and that’s when I’ve had most success as that morning routine sets my focus for the day. I did track trendweight instead of daily scale weight, though. Currently I only weigh in about once a month at the maternity clinic and would prefer not to even weigh in there, but I know it’s…
  • @peachplace what works for me in terms of routine, is packing my workout gear with me when I leave for work in the morning, so I have to go after work or I risk feeling like an idiot for carrying all that stuff with me all day and then skipping. @leni1us tell yourself you can always go back to that restaurant tomorrow/next…
  • Any tricks to beat the heat? It’s been a constant heat wave here since mid-June, and some long-term forecasters are saying it might continue until August. I don’t do well in heat in general, but this summer is hell with this little space heater kicking around my belly. Today it’s ”only” 26C/80F and raining, and I’m so…
  • Thanks! I’m actually a little jealous, hitting that overweight milestone is a big goal for me!
  • Intro time: I’m Hipari, I’m 29 and I live in Finland with my husband. I’m currently sharing my body with our first child, who we’re expecting in late October. I can’t believe I’m already in my 6th month of pregnancy! I’m not currently trying to lose weight due to pregnancy, but will happily rejoin the weight loss team once…
  • Hiya everyone, and sorry for going missing for some time! It’s been a wild couple of weeks (how many have I been gone?). Three weeks ago my mom sold her apartment and today was her move-out day, so it’s been pretty hectic trying to help her pack. Two weeks ago I pulled my back pretty badly, and couldn’t really walk or…
  • I agree with this, not necessarily about having specifically a male trainer talk to him, but someone who is a "stranger" and a professional, so they can be more objective and your SO can better take the advice as professional advice without any personal agenda (real or imagined) sprinkled in.
  • I absolutely agree. I don't know the exact details about how it happened, I've only been reading the newspaper, and I'm pretty sure there's going to be some sort of investigation into this. My best guess is that there was someone asymptomatic and/or false negative test spreading it, whether it was a patient or staff member…
  • Last month there was a local epidemic of the Delta variant inside a hospital that had more than 80 infections, and families of hospital workers were also infected. 7 elderly people died (and considering the vaccination rates in the elderly, it’s likely that most of them had at least one, probably two shots). 80% of those…
  • I think traveling to see the games live is one thing and probably well coordinated for the most part. It's the sports bars and people gathering at homes, restaurants, bars and in the streets that I'm more concerned about in terms of spreading covid. Finland won their first game (not deserved after the situation with…
  • Sending sympathy to your husband. I’m pregnant and have alopecia, so the combination of wig, sunglasses*, headphones and the mask is a lot of behind-the-ear-action, especially as masks make nausea worse. Whenever I’ve been feeling like it’s too much, I’ve only worn the mask to more crowded situations and taking it off for…
  • Same here, I’m in an all-white-collar-industry and flexibility in terms of time and location has always been important to us. Even pre-covid, our rules were that customer work must be done when customer requests it and internal meetings must be scheduled during regular office hours so nobody feels pressured to work nights…
  • It’s a new week! What are everyone’s plans like? I have lots of fun stuff and social activity planned for this week, and I’m honestly a little concerned about not having enough down time to get my feet up and rest. Today I’m having dinner with some friends, on Wednesday I have a work dinner, on Thursday a family dinner and…
  • To add to step 1 ”too soon for antibodies to show”. Last autumn a colleague’s son (aged 10-ish) got covid from his sports team, and they would never have tested him if the team didn’t inform them of known exposure, as the son’s only symptom was a 3-hour headache. After the son was a confirmed case, the parents were tested…
  • No worries, I won’t blast you. I’ll preface this with the fact that I don’t live in America and here in Finland we generally don’t share the American fear of litigation ;) instead, its something we usually laugh our butts off about. Our guidelines are generally on the strict side, compared to other countries, and…
  • I feel you both! The only thing stopping me from devouring half a pack of frozen gingerbread cookie dough yesterday was that it’s June and nobody sells that stuff at this time of year.
  • Have you tracked your heart rate during and after those workouts? What’s the non-exercise part of your day/week like? The symptoms you experience remind me of the way I felt especially in early stages of pregnancy, when blood flow was increased. I have also sometimes had this happen after a sauna session, which also…
  • So many points here to respond to. First, a personal gripe. Just last week I had to send medium cooked meat back because I ordered well done (and explicitly said it needs to be cooked thoroughly so there’s no pink/red left) and literally cannot safely eat medium meat until this baby is born. Me, you, your God and that…
  • I completely agree on those mild illnesses that don’t require actual medical treatment or advice. This is why I like the fact that most employers here (at least in white-collar jobs) waive the doctor’s note requirement for the first three days. I obviously can’t speak about all healthcare providers here, but at least the…
  • I was also going to suggest a pregnancy test just in case, it's an easy thing to rule out.
  • Yep, the doctor's note system wouldn't work in the US, based on what I've heard of the US healthcare system. Here in Finland I haven't used public healthcare much since all employers are required to offer a minimum level of preventative healthcare and treatment for work-related accidents and sicknesses, and all employers…
  • Great losses and goals, everyone! Today we had our anatomy ultrasound appointment, and it looks like we’re expecting a little girl <3 of course, the kid will eventually tell us if the midwife’s assumption was right, but at least her genitals give us an educated guess. We’re not big on gender stereotypes or pushing…
