rant of no sense time:

When someone who is say overweight, says they want to lose 30 lbs and then their healthy weight thin friend responds with "yea I need to lose 5 lbs", the overweight person is of course going to side eye them. NO HARM TO THE Healthy weight, thin person, you can lose weight you can tone your body, do you. But with weight loss it's almost a touchy subject, it's like, gtfo here with that.

I know someone is thinking well I'm thin sooo I can't lose weight. it's not that you can't lose weight, but when your goal is on a totally different level than someone else it's just TWO DIFFERENT THINGS SO DON'T TRY TO BE ON THE SAME LEVEL. No one is belittling you. Calm down.

And don't even get me started on when thin people get mad because its' "okay" to make fun of them and not "fat" people. (which it isn't but someone is bound to cry it out) Apples to oranges, and you know this. You know this society we live in, so don't even try. So don't come with that. Please do not.



Like my old roommate she's thin, super thin, I as usual was trying to lose weight, mine : Lose 20 lbs. She's all "I'll help you, I need to lose 6 lbs". REALLY NO. GO AWAY. Then she's in like a totally different field, doesn't wanna work out, I'm bigger and am in more shape than her. she'd work out for 10 minutes and then be done. I'm like WHAT. so I'd have to stop because she'd stop and didn't want to work out after her little 10 minutes. In the end, I lost no weight and ended up wanting to punch her in the face because she lost her little 6 lbs and I lost nothing, because I had to do what she did when she did it and her work outs were nothing.


I rebuke that swimsuit thread, I quit it and I'll never go back in it.

SCG, I found out the other week at my job, that our recycle bins we have everywhere....go in the trash. WTF. WHY ARE WE LYING TO EVERYONE. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE SIN. Now I have to question all places that have recycle bins. I wonder if my university even really recycles. Shams of shams.

My school has recycling bins all over the place, but people are always throwing regular trash in them. Because, you know, it's so hard to tell the difference between a GREEN RECYCLING BIN WITH THE RECYCLING LOGO ON IT and the trash can sitting next to it.



ETA: As Georgia Nicolson would say... It's a facsimile of a sham!!!!

My mom has alway been overweight. Shes over 200lbs, has type 2 diabetes and struggles very hard with weight. Its a very difficult issue for her and it involves a lot of emotion and mental health. I'm very sensitive to this issue.

I understand that people can have body issues at any size. But I cannot get on board with the 'skinny people have it tough too.' I can not. It goes like this:

Skinny person: 'I have to lose 3 lbs' - world goes 'aww, how cute'

Fat person: 'I need to lose 100 lbs' - world goes 'you're disgusting and need to stop eating'.

I hate when I see people do that. I want to scream: YOU'RE KILLING US.



We have Trash, Tech Trash, Plastic Bottles, Paper etc. all in rows...EVERYWHERE. You made it to college, hopefully you can read.
I thought this woman on the news was calling Steubenvile (rape trial), Stupidville, I was like...now this woman knows what she's talking about.



How about instead of giving women guns, just delete men from earth. I mean. Ugh. Stupidville is correct.

So, a while ago I heard that if you leave the lid on a plastic bottle when you put it in the recycling bin, the entire bin will probably just have to be thrown away, because lids are often a different type of plastic from bottles.

Is this still the case? We go through SO MANY milk jugs every day at work, and we have a recycling bin that we put them all in, but people are always leaving the lids and rings on them. When I first started working there, I would take the lids and rings off before I threw the jugs in the bin, but one day my trainer saw me and scolded me for it, and made me put the lids back on.

Anyway, I was just thinking about this last night. We go through at least two very large recycling bins a day, and it'd be frustrating if all of those jugs were just being thrown in a landfill anyhow.

Also, we had this awesome filtered water bottle filling station at all of the water fountains. ZOMG it was awesome. And the water tasted delish. It was nice because the douchey male hicks (sorry I'm not sorry) used to spit their chew (or whatever the disgusting by-product of it is called) into the water fountains. So I was always like, um, no thanks, not gonna let my reusable water bottle go anywhere near that.

I don't know what that has to do with anything, really. Sigh. I miss my state school for all the sweet swag we got! Catholic schools are sort of the suck...

Its so not worth me having a mobile plan. According to my bills I usually send around 90-110 texts a month and use 5 minutes of call time. No internet at all.
Totally serious, non-snarky question: How short do you have to be for 3 lbs to make a noticeable difference? I've always assumed it's just about being stuck on the magical goal weight regardless of looks (which is fine, I mean I get stuck on hair stuff when no can see any difference, so I get it), but with so many non-overweight people wanting to lose just 3 lbs I'm wondering if there's actually something to it that just a number.
Eres o te haces?
This sounds ridiculous, but while I might not be able to see a difference after 3 pounds, I can totally see a difference after 5 pounds. 5 pounds is like the magical number for me. You can tell just all around that I've gained weight - in my face, my midsection, thighs... I'm 5'2''.

That being said, I'm rarely (aka, basically never) on a mission to lose 3 or 5 pounds.

If anything, I'd be more interested in losing inches, but I think the people who are trying to shed 3 pounds are probably more concerned (like you said) about the number, rather than the actual difference.

I honestly don't know. I know lots of people can get scale obsessed, my friend was like that. "I lost two lbs today im good...oh no i gained one lb back last night" I wanted to scream FLUCTUATION.

I don't really go by lbs I mean like I said I can lose 15 lbs and still fit the same pants soooo the struggle is trill for me. I go by measurements. I'm on my phone but ill try to find the link its on weightlifting.com it's a chart for measurements in weeks. It's nicely created, if anyone wants to keep track that way. It has weight also, but measurements I feel are better.
Yea when I was thin before the freshman50 (more like junior 50 but shhh I try to tell people it was throughout my whole college career not just the last two that I gained so much weight) I was obsessed with the number 135 even though 140 and 135 made no difference for me. lol but who wants to be 140 when you can be 135! But now shoooo get me to 170's and I won't complain.
I can't see a few lbs, but my clothes can. My baggy clothes start fitting, and the other stuff gets tight.
I still miss y'all. (aka my email notifications still aren't working so I actually have to work for it to see new posts)

I miss y'alls three pounds too so don't lose it again.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
LOL SPRING.

Why does my sibling have the worst timing ever?? Everytime I'm about to do something, what are you doing? NO.
