The Lounge Do you believe Bill Cosby or the women? Jul 08 2015

I didn't watch the Cosby Show or any of the other programs he was on. But I loved his standup.  Especially the stuff about his kids.  "Chocolate cake for breakfast." "Children lie." Hilarious stuff. As in, I still quote it from time to time. Is that wrong?

As thonx said: the number of negative feelings I have about this are numerous and interwoven.

I was always the opposite. As a kid, I'd take a cupcake, turn it upside down in the wrapper, and eat down until I reached icing, and throw that out with the wrapper.  Now, I prefer some icing with my cake. But still not a lot.

Either way, I think VDD is right - it was one snack. On one day. Let it go.  Who cares if the cake part is less calories, if you don't enjoy it as much as the icing.  Eat the part that you like the best, when you really want some, when it's really worth it to you, but don't make it a habit.

Yay! I don't feel alone! Lol. I always feel/ felt I was a weird kid. I liked the cake and didn't like the frosting...I never thought of turning it upside down though...I think I tried to eat around it. I also didn't like syrup on pancakes or waffles or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Ironically now I like most of those, but not overly so.

I don't like jelly. I eat peanut butter sandwiches.

The grades on here are not very useful. Things that are perfectly healthy are given bad grades, stuff that has no nutritional content gets a fair to middling grade... and a lot of it is based on outdated science (the idea that fat in general is bad for you).

Fat is a healthy part of a balanced diet. Peanut butter is yummy.

He was way too uppity. So they vowed to make him a one term president.

And when he became a two term president, they vowed to deny him any accomplishment whatsoever at any cost even if they had to go to the highest court in the land.

And when he accomplished some things anyway, they said he was a tyrant king, and they stomped their feet, and then gave him fast track trade authorization but still maintained that he was an awful tyrant and the worst president we've ever had - way worse than all who came before him.

But see, they have that luxury, not being reality-based and all.

I feel like we need some gnashing of their terrible teeth and rolling of their terrible eyes.

Although that might lead to them saying "Please don't go. We'll eat you up. We love you so." And I don't expect that.

I just heard someone say that Lindsey Graham has pledged to have a rotating first lady if he becomes president.

Whhhhut does that mean?

I have an image of a lady standing on a turntable that's somehow revolving with her on it, spinning her around. Kinda like Will Ferrell.

I believe it means that, like with previous bachelor Presidents, another or multiple female family members could function in that role.

The turntable would still be an awesome idea.

From that story: "“I’m a social kind of guy,” Graham said. “I think one of the biggest mistakes President Obama made was being a little too distant.”"

Hear that? If Obama had just been a little more friendly, everyone would have gotten along.

MOTY over here. Step aside, other moms, I am the world's most okayest mom!!!!

So, Raptor has had a cough and sniffles for a week but has been eating well, having wet diapers and has been mostly himself. Yesterday afternoon, he declined his afternoon bottle, slept most of the late afternoon and evening, begrudgingly took his evening bottle, declined both night bottles, coughed most of the night (no fever, congestion in nose was pretty much gone), woke up this morning babbling and talking and smiling, slurped down his bottle, had a wet diaper. I notified daycare Friday and they said as long as he had no fever and no vomiting and was feeling ok, he could come in. I asked yesterday and they said he was fantastic last week and ok for most of yesterday until the afternoon. But this morning he was still coughing and snotty nose so I called the pediatrician just to let them know, figuring, hey, it's a cold, not much they can do!

Them: "Why have you not brought him in sooner?"
Me: "Well...he had no fever. And he's been mostly himself and he's been eating and stuff!"
Them: "At three months old, he needs to be seen when he's had more than a couple of days of symptoms."

I'll take my gold medal of mediocrity and hang it up with pride. :/

I feel bad for my poor kid stuck with me as a parent: "Does he still have all of his limbs? Is he breathing? He's fine."

I just spent the past 20 minutes trying to find something I read a while ago... it was very funny, but it boils down to how there is an invisible line that doctors have, and you are either on one side (Why are you bothering us with this? It's nothing. Idiot. Don't you know kids get sick?) or the other (How could you have waited so long to call us??? Don't you know anything??).

But it's invisible. So you never know which side of the line you are on, until you call up and get berated.

 

Weight Loss Stopped exercising and lost weight? Jun 29 2015

Hi there!

I have kept up a pretty extensive workout routine for 5 years now. Running has been my main activity (running about 20 miles per week) along with the bike and weights. I would work out 6 times a week for 1-1.5 hours.

During this time, my weight would remain steady and then I gained maybe 5 pounds over the past year.

I stopped working out completely 3 weeks ago and in just those three weeks have lost 8 pounds. Super strange! Amd it's not just weight; I've lost inches. My clothes are much looser.

Has anyone had a similar experience or an explanation for this? Have I just lost muscle mass? I must say I'm Happy with the results but want to start working out again but keep those pounds lost off.

But your bmi is 16... Why are you working out so hard and trying to stay underweight?

I would find an entry for raw beef, and log the precooked weight. The post cooked weight would depend on how much water loss there was, less accurate.

You also posted yesterday that you just lost 8lb in the past three weeks, and you are happy about it.

1. You have "always been thin," but you also had (have?) an eating disorder. Your post made it seem like you are naturally skinny, but your posting history (what you didn't delete, I'm guessing to hide it) says otherwise.

2. Your bmi in Sept of last year was 17, so you've actually weighed more. But based on your older threads you were simultaneously claiming to be recovered AND trying to lose weight while not weight recovered. So I don't really know what to believe.

3. Some women continue to ovulate even when clinically underweight. What you should consider is whether you are prepared to adequately nourish a growing baby, even if that means you gain weight. Weight gain during pregnancy can be very triggering with women who have a history of ED, much less haven't recovered. Perhaps getting pregnant can be motivation for you to gain/recover first.

Thank you, purespark.

 

I've been marveling about how my facebook feed was suddenly flooded with only positive messages about this.  And then one negative one came up, and I realized... I'm not friends with this person. I don't need to see his bigotry in my facebook feed. If he wrote rationale arguments, perhaps I would respect hearing from the other side, but he just posts ugly hatred. So I did something I should have done a while ago. I unfriended him. Take that, person who will never notice!

Walking an hour a day is lightly active.  Your days when you work at the restaurant, you might be moderately active.

I'm guessing you are using the app?

On the app, "other activity" is the calories you burn over the course of a day just from living, as opposed to the calories you burn from exercise.

I think they were acting more as Christians than as black people afraid to react viscerally because of a racist society.

Christians are supposed to be a forgiving lot...well, unless someone is gay.  "Those" people can only be forgiven once they renounce their sexual preference.  :/

I thought #notallChristians felt that way.
