    New day, new you

    Screw the new year! What are you doing TODAY to make a small, positive change? I'm notorious for leaving Christmas stuff out for way too long--old wrapping paper, stocking stuffers I dont know what to do with yet, things like that. I'm picking it ALL up today and trying to really lock into how...

    Gals--clothing advice?

    Hi girls, ladies, and women. I haven't worn jeans since I put on some weight, because I just never bothered to replace them. It's hard to find jeans that fit both my legs and my hips at the same time. Does anyone have advice for where I should try? I'd like to keep it $75 or less.

    Before and after photos

    This is more of a rant than anything else. I saw this "before/after" picture of a woman on Facebook. The two pictures were identical. It was a very nice statement about a person not being under obligation to be thin to please others. It's true, and it's a good thing to keep in mind. I definitely...

    Live-in boyfriends and girlfriends in parents' home

    I was just reading a post by Dave, who mentioned that his daughter and her boyfriend live in his house. I live in a really conservative state, and I can't think of anyone who's been allowed to live with their SO while still in their parents' home. I know a girl from London who did it and...

    A story that shapes you

    I was about to post something in the random crap thread, but then I didn't. This is a personal story that helped shape who I am today. Read mine and then share your own! We have an elevator to our upstairs classrooms for people who can't use the stairs. I almost never use it, even when my...

    I need help

    I'm reaching out for support. Most days I feel ridiculous about how helpless I feel. There are so many supportive people in my life, but they can't help me with this. I don't want to be anywhere near 200 lb again. I'm trying so hard, but I have the same trouble as my father--in times of great...

    [Announcement] I often see these on internet nostalgia lists... (Crispy M&Ms) Crispy M&Ms, something I've heard of but have never tried, are returning. So be happy if you were sad before. And they are kosher.

    This thread is dumb

    I was just taking a quick coffee break and I came here to see what y'all were up to. It makes me happy to come here. Y'all make my day better. It's great when something small makes such a big difference. Thanks for being kind, blunt, funny, thought-provoking, and ridiculous. All those things...

    Quitting myfitnesspal

    This isn't an advice thread... just an announcement I feel compelled to make for some reason. Over the past few weeks I've been deleting myfitnesspal from my phone. Finally I did it, and here's why, if you care: 1. I get hungry after dinner... not "I'm bored" hungry, but "shit I'm not going...

    Stuck--need to find a song. Help!

    Hello, everyone! I'm preparing a chapel for school next week, and I'd love to have a song to go along with it. I'm having trouble finding a song that is both A) kid friendly and B) not horrible ear-offending Christian pop. I need a song that delivers one of these messages: 1. Someone...

    How do you lose yourself?

    Give me something interesting to read! When you want all your problems to float away and kind of go on "autopilot" for a while, what do you do? How does that feel? I started this thread because of a very nice moment I had last week. I had started making a really simple, quick dinner. Before I...
