Books The BOOK I Just Finished Jan 26 2016
21:33 (UTC)

I just looked up "The Glass Castle" -- looks good as does "Half Broke Horses" by the same author. I'll get that next. Don't laugh! I just finished "Down the Rabbit Hole" by Holly Madison (former Playboy Bunny). It really was interesting and reveals that things are not as they seem at the Playboy mansion. Also, it really humanizes this woman.

Books self help book suggestions needed Jan 26 2016
21:11 (UTC)

I guess you could call these "self help" (my favorite kind, I must say!):

"The Art of Loving" by Erich Fromm (famous psychoanalyst) (I've read this one 3 times back to back) and "Mastery of Love" by Don Miguel Ruiz -- this one is about WAY more than love ... don't let the word "Love" stop you from reading either of these. Read them and let me know what you think! I can come up with many many more. I read them all! LOL

Books Good books? Jan 26 2016

A REALLY good book I read is called "A House in the Sky" by Amanda Lindhout. It's NON-fiction. About a self-made journalist who traveled to obscure countries looking for a story only to be kidnapped. OMG, somebody read this and tell me what you think! It's definitely relative to what's going on in the world today.

I do NOT believe that for one minute! I am surprised a doctor would say that. What are your stats? Height/weight? It could very possibly be that you are not taking in enough calories.

Since you have "control issues" why don't you take charge (control) of something else ... something that will be less likely to harm you?! :)

You have to make other plans for yourself -- go to a movie or rent some or something. God, most of the people I know would LOVE if the kids (and families) went AWAY for Christmas and left them alone in peace. haha Gotta change your mindset.
The Lounge A touchy subject Dec 22 2007

I DON'T think you should tell the person. Everybody looks in the mirror and can see what's going on. Whether they are in denial or not is another story, but I don't think it ever helps to tell somebody they're getting fat. I'll bet money on the fact that the guy is worried about looks ONLY and not her health; otherwise, he simply would not care. When you're with someone that long, you can't care.
The Lounge How did you feel when you hit the Big 3O? Dec 17 2007
09:23 (UTC)
Pffft! Age ain't nothin' but a number. Thirty didn't bother me one bit! I don't understand why everybody gets a bug up their butt about it. Our lives are SO MUCH MORE than just the first 20 (or 29) years! I FEEL 18! That's all that matters! :) I wouldn't go back to the 20s for anything.

Thirty-FIVE wasn't any big deal either. I'm 37, approaching 40! I WELCOME it! :) I love moving forward. I'm single, no kids. I don't think I have to hurry up for that either. Women have babies well into their 40s. And if I run into a problem, big deal, I adopt. Mind over matter! Don't fret over stuff you can't control! Embrace it! :)

One of the other fish must have eaten him, eh? Either that or he's hiding and he's completely camouflaged.

Bob sounds like a potential stalker. You owe him NOTHING. No means NO. It sounds like you've clearly let him know you are NOT interested. Stay away from this guy and watch your back. Don't even talk to him. Any little thing you say he may magnifay. He sounds like he's off his rocker.

Are you talking just yeast infection or systemic infection? Try acidiphilus AND/or garlic in pill form. Works like a charm! Also, eat yogurt daily. I might also have some other advice depending on your problem.

Get rid of it and get over feeling bad. Your parents don't have to know. But do tell them for future reference that you're "watching it." 
Health & Support AHH WHY is this happening!?! Dec 01 2007
08:15 (UTC)
Oh don't sweat it! It happens to all of us. I've already hit my goal weight and I have a nice tummy ... yet sometimes I look six months pregnant with bloat! I know carbs/sugars do it to me ... I try to avoid them as much as possible (i.e., cereals, bread, pretzels, etc.).

Foods cutting carbs. Nov 20 2007
19:53 (UTC)
Carbs are the DEVIL! They bloat me out and make me look six-months pregnant! I suggest you just cut out the "white products" white flour, white breads, white rice, white potatoes, and some cereals. Concentrate on WHOLE grains. Don't worry too much about fruits and vegetables, though myself I only sparingly eat corn and peas. I DEVOUR carrots and am not about to give them up anytime soon!
