I definitely needed that mini meltdown last night. I feel totally out of the fog I've felt for the past several days. Poor bf probably thinks I'm nuts bc I've barely talked to him for the past couple of days. But he gave me a long hug today so I think he knew.

I am glad we all ended up talking, too.

Michelle Obama looks so pretty in the latest issue Vogue. I bought it last weekend and had not looked at it yet.

Excuse me??? You gave me whiplash there! You are so not fat! I see that photo of you and the first thing I think is you look great: powerful, strong and that, my dear, is hot and sex-ay!


Thank you! Truth is, though, I'm pretty fat! I'm 5'2 and 175 pounds. Fat by anyone's standards-- Obese by the charts. But I'm physically fit, at least.
I have to own how 'fat' I feel. Its part of my self acceptance of my body size. It keeps me from turning to an eating disorder. Or self loating. If I convince myself that I'm not fat, then I am reminded that 'fat is bad' and on days I feel fat, I feel bad.

I've started to accept, not that I 'need to lose 20lbs', but that ya, there's fat, thats okay. I'm hungry. Lol.

If she was selling hair products, perhaps I could understand it. But she isn't: she's selling art. Her own art. Art that in no way competes with NC, its products, or its mission.

I think many of us enjoy hearing about Kat's well-earned success. This clampdown should be reconsidered.
Well I don't know if they're gonna be that strict about the whole thing, but I'm kind of getting that vibe from the whole 'any other thread will also be shut down' and 'people can pm if they want to contact you'.

A shame because it was fun chatting about it all with everyone. C'est la vie.
I understand the rule. It's black and white. But how it's applied is NOT. What sandals are you wearing? thread: I asked spring1onu what kind of sandals were in 2 photos she posted and she told me the brands and either provided new links or the photos were links themselves (I don't remember...) but that violates the rule. So does whoever recently posted about a Maidenform bra sale going on. Just like when Rou posts about Mac products coming out new or going on sale. Same thing when I asked someone on the needle, hook thread where they got the pattern they used to crochet a cowboy hat for a baby, and they provided me with a link to an Etsy store and the product. ALL of them are promoting a certain product, thus they all are actually advertising. So why are some allowed and some are not??? Is it self-promotion that isn't allowed????? That's not in the rule itself.

If you aren't interested in a bra sale, or a Mac sale or a new Etsy store, you just don't click on that thread.

No one felt pressured to buy from kayb, I am certain of that. We were supporting her emotionally, cheering her on. And some of us are super excited about upcoming things that don't even exist yet which we dare not name!

I think it's worth repeating: If you aren't interested in a bra sale, or a Mac sale or a new Etsy store, you just don't click on that thread.
I'm not sure what the confusion is. The rule is fairly explicit:

Quote:

Soliciting may include promoting a home business, charity drives, items for auction, etc., as well as information such as a contact address or web URL.
Kat's Etsy shop is a home business. Mentioning or linking where you purchased an item is not the same as directing people to your personal business, where you profit from the purchases. I'm actually incredulous that some of you don't see this.

Also, I think it needs to be said that we don't own this site. We have no say in the business practices of naturallycurly.com We are non-paid volunteers who enforce the rules created by administrators of this site.

We ask that you move this discussion to PM because some of you are in violation of forum rules and we don't want to put members in timeouts, lock threads, and all that jazz. So please, take this discussion to PM and do not derail this thread any further.

Quote:
LEAVE IT: Please don't start new threads to continue an argument from a thread that was locked. New threads created for this purpose will automatically be locked. By the same token, don't take arguments or drama into other, existing threads either; that, too, will result in threads being locked.

I think that's more important than weight. Remember those physical fitness tests in school? I bet you'd kick my butt at every single one of them. I am at my "ideal" weight and bmi, but it's because I've been very sick this winter and lost 35 pounds. So my weight and bmi look awesome, but in truth I am the most unfit I've ever been in my life. I couldn't run a mile at this point. I might can do 10 pushups. I don't want to think about crunches. Or anything that involves any sort of endurance.

Hmmm... Vanessa Paradis is modeling again. Ack! Me and my Vogue. I have been buying this for years, and mainly for the pictures. Lol. I pick out stuff I love, and try to find a close match.

And for stuff like this!!

Oooh, Murrrcat... It's 10 minutes of our future baby daddy!!

I'd like to come between him and his Calvin's

^That is greatness.


I am so glad I hoard clothes. Buy a jean jacket? Pfft! I have 5. Some are 15+ years old. I wear em' when I want, because I love them, and can not part with them.

*Okay, other than that acid washed, bleach faded, cropped monstrosity I had in the 80's. That went. The rest remain classic.

I hated those fitness tests with a passion. The rope climbing and pushups always did me in.

Ughh.

I took a shower last night after work because I smelled like milk and burnt coffe (ew) and I didn't want to wake up early before Arabic today.

Right, well. Going to sleep with wet hair during the summer = awesome, voluminous hair. In the spring/winter/whatever season this = ew. It's all weird and flat in a bunch of random spots.

It smells fabu but I'm gonna have to wash it again because it looks so bad!

Or I'll just stay home all day/night? I think I like that one more.

I hate running across pictures of myself before I lost weight, but at the same time it is a good kick in the pants. I have been freaking out because I put on 4 lbs last weekend thanks to my food lust, and water retention. It's not much, I know, but the moment I go 1 pound over 140, I feel it. And it does not feel good. It really screws with my energy.

I just wish people would quit treating me like I weigh 75 lbs since I lost weight. I carry it different, and I feel healthy (you know, that important thing) between 135 and 140. That is hardly wilting away. *And people do sincerely call me a liar when I tell them how much I weigh. They think I am below 100. I don't know how. I've seen myself at 100, and it was skin and bones horrible. I am no where near that.

Thank Springy. I does help.

I'm laughing that some random dude who is apparently a cowboy in Texas just friend-requested me. He plays golf. Has a bunch of pics of scantily clad women under a set of photos labeled "Cowboy". LMAO.

















And he ugly.
