    [–] What’s the dumbest thing your significant other has said or done? dimplezcz 1 points ago in AskReddit

    oh he lives for dumb antics. for example, he wears two pairs of underwear when he's tripping in case the acid stomach gets a little severe

    [–] What’s the dumbest thing your significant other has said or done? dimplezcz 4 points ago in AskReddit

    The most infuriating part is that he wasn't coughing or crying at all, he just had a glass of water and was fine. Meanwhile my lungs are burning and I have never coughed so hard😅

    Fair point. The giant letters that said "MACE" across the tube were very faded

    He picked up our friend's keys, thinking one of her keychains was a laser pointer.

    It was mace.

    He got a nice spray to the face and I was sitting right next to him, so I got a lovely dose as well. For the next 30 minutes or so the ENTIRE apartment was coughing and dying and trying to air the place out. Even our friend who was upstairs showering could feel the effects.

    Still love him tho

    UPDATE: bf wants to clarify—he thought it was a lighter or air freshener, not a laser. still doesn't help is case very much lol

    [–] Anyone else trying to fit in valentine chocolate into their budget by running on a treadmill? dimplezcz 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in 1200isfineIGUESSugh

    My boyfriend got me a GIANT 800 calorie Reese's heart...did I eat the whole thing for lunch after my lift because I forgot a protein bar? yes

    Was I hangry as fuck by the time dinner rolled around? yes

    Did I somehow manage to stay below my 1500 calorie limit? surprisingly yes lmao💓

    I'm going for a big fat run tomorrow nonetheless

    [–] I ate over 2000 calories today just in cookies hahahaha .... oops dimplezcz 8 points ago in 1200isfineIGUESSugh

    Bf and I went out to Golden Corral to celebrate Valentine's day.....worth it.

    And exactly, tomorrow is a new day with a clean slate!😅

    Stuff You Should Know is one of my favorites. I listen to it during long car rides to help me feel less lonely😅

    [–] Wellness Wednesday dimplezcz 7 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in fatlogic

    With spring just around the corner and spring break in less than a month, I'm really trying to hit my stride at the gym. I have about 1.3 hours in between my classes most days, which is the perfect amount of time to go to the on-campus gym. Smashed a leg day earlier today and ran 4 miles on Monday! Also, I'm enjoying running a lot more which is great for my weight that has been yo-yoing between 144-148 since about June of last year (need to update my flair lol). My UGW is 135-137, but I'm not beating myself up over numbers anymore.

    More of a rant than rave: holy shit finding a job is hard. I get my bachelor's degree in May, and want to start a job shortly thereafter. I've had ~6 interviews so far with different companies and two more scheduled later this month...still no offers! I'm trying to not let not having a clear path/plan derail my self-worth and self-esteem...I just need to be persistent and patient but those aren't my strong suits. if anyone knows of a food company hiring for r&d lmk

    Forgot to add: I've been researching lots of supplements to ~naturally~ deal with anxiety/PMS/shitty feelings in general (I don't take BC) and so far I've found taking vitamin D3 and magnesium powder to really help keep me calm and my mood slightly elevated. I have maca powder, too, and I've heard some great things about it but tbh it tastes AWFUL and every time I try to mix it in something it just clumps and doesn't dissolve well.

    [–] Struggling with Weight Gain dimplezcz 15 points ago in xxfitness

    Coffee, lots of water, making sure to get the right macro balance so you stay full throughout the day, and possibly seeking out therapy if emotional eating is a big enough factor. We all eat for comfort from time to time, but if it's your only coping mechanism it may lead to unhealthy (both mentally and physically) binge cycles

    [–] Parents why do you keep on feeding your fat children? dimplezcz 2 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    I'm saying the fatlogic here is that she claimed they ate the same amount of foods and her sister was heavier despite their similar height and TDEE. maybe the thinner one played more sports (I.e. burned more calories) and didn't snack as much as the heavier one. Claiming they had the same calories in and out yet had different weights is fatlogic.

    [–] Parents why do you keep on feeding your fat children? dimplezcz 1 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    if there seems to be too much/too little of a specific ingredient (e.g. chicken broth, water, a pound of a specific spice) or if the cooking instructions aren't very straightforward or are over-complicated. normally when making something for the first time, i consult several different recipes and kind of make a combination of them or go off my own intuition.

    [–] Parents why do you keep on feeding your fat children? dimplezcz 2 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    in the context of a recipe, though, it's not too hard to fuck up if you're just making a simple crockpot meal. i make my own meals every day on a college budget (~$30/week to feed myself) and i don't find it too mentally strenuous. i've never followed a recipe from a website and had it filled with trash information. if it seems sketchy, just find a different recipe...

    [–] Parents why do you keep on feeding your fat children? dimplezcz 5 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    step 1: turn crockpot on

    step 2: dump ingredients in

    step 3: come back in 8-12 hours to a home-cooked meal

    also, a quick google/youtube search could give you all the info you need about the basics of cooking. if you have internet access, it's almost willful ignorance to not learn the basics in this wealth-of-information age

    [–] Parents why do you keep on feeding your fat children? dimplezcz 2 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    i've seen them at goodwill for $5-10. i'm assuming most people have access to some sort of food source, whether it's a food desert or not--the essentials are almost always available. a crockpot is pretty cool because you can dump all the ingredients in the pot, set it to a low setting, and come back 8-12 hours later to a home-cooked meal.

    [–] Parents why do you keep on feeding your fat children? dimplezcz 19 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    this isn't true. there's no way she ate the exact same foods as you and was much heavier. people want to blame genetics or other pseudo-science facts, but that's not the case. she must have been eating more foods than you that you didn't notice or that she was hiding. check out r/fatlogic for tons of evidence about genetics having minimal effect on weight. tbf, the only part genetics really plays is *where* your body stores fat, not how much.

    [–] Parents why do you keep on feeding your fat children? dimplezcz 17 points ago in TooAfraidToAsk

    crockpot, rice, beans, canned veggies, water. cheap, easy to meal prep, and tasty if you add adequate seasoning. you could feed a family for days with these ingredients and will end up being much cheaper per serving than fast food.

    [–] Making meals at home? Never heard of that! dimplezcz 3 points ago in fatlogic

    If you drain the water and weigh the beans I've found it's to only be ~1.5 servings

    The net weight on the can usually says 425g and my drained beans come out to be ~200g, and a serving is usually 130g. Why they gotta do us like that >:(

    [–] What is your favorite "holy crap this actually works" trick? dimplezcz 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Don't forget the fact that magnesium glycinate helps ya poo.

    Source: have been taking it the past couple nights and on the bottle it says "when bowels are comfortably loose, you have taken the appropriate amount"

    [–] Someone who claims she is anorexic gets called out by someone who actually struggled with it. dimplezcz 15 points ago in fatlogic

    I've wondered this about a certain instagrammer I follow. She openly claims to be fully recovered from her ED, which is great, but she'll post stories of hour long intense cardio sessions literally every day. She says it combats her anxiety whereas it seems like it's an exercise addiction to me. I'm not close to her at all so I'd never ask about it but it just makes me curious if she is in fact fully recovered.
