@maritimah Yeah, exactly!!! I love this. I love this mostly as an athlete who eats a crap ton because I work out a crap ton and then it's like, oh shit, where the hell did that extra 5lbs come from?? It's not vanity (well......for the most part?) but more concern. Healthy weight loss tips/body positivity are gr8!!
This has to be the gentlest "weight lost tips" I've ever seen. I'm filing it under the same category as Ask A... and Ask Polly.
I'm not planning on losing an ounce but I've got oddball eating questions I'll be sending in.
@Kira-Lynn@twitter i also think (hope) this does not fall so much under "weight-loss tips" as much as "nutritional advice for individual people who want to achieve goals that are, because of their personal nature, off the table for abstract judgment." i know that food is a hard issue to talk about for a lot of people and as much as i fully respect anyone's prerogative to be like "FUCK LOSING WEIGHT, THAT'S A LOADED METRIC AND NOT HOW I WANT TO THINK ABOUT MY BODY" i also fully respect someone else's right to be like "i am interested in working out more and also dropping some weight, how can i do that healthily and not self-deprive?"
I don't know, if I want to see diet/nutrition/exercise tips, I want to see it on The Hairpin, where it will be encased in Body Positivity & Feminism, you know? I am interested in these things, but the rest of the internet is a scary place to read about them...
@Kira-Lynn@twitter these are questions from commenters!
speaking of: if anyone has nutritional questions feel free to send them over to notes @ thehairpin
@jane lane I always thought that for the bachelorette party you bought borderline-naughty stuff, like lingerie? For my BFF's bachelorette, which I couldn't go to, I bought her some nice undies with "Mrs." on them. But that would be weird for a coworker! When in doubt, bottle o'wine.
@George Templeton Strong That's kind of sweet and weird and amazing all at once. I hope you throw some bizarre 1950's cocktail parties with those shrimp forks and gravy boats.
@NotFace Your mother-in-law was right, as they infrequently are, but when they're right they're right. I am now the proud co-owner of a dinner service for 12, gravy boats, shrimp forks, a couple of accoutrements that I believe were meant to be ashtrays, the works. She didn't come from a family with any money at all and in the early 1950s as a young-ish black woman her whole extended network of family and friends gave her this as a communal wedding present. When her son and I FINALLY bought an apartment she boxed it all up and sent it to us. I am a white male.
@j-i-a One time I swatted at my dog's snout when he did something bad, and I immediately cried and hugged him. I still feel guilty about it. :(
The point of this comment being: I don't think I could bring myself to spank a child if I also can't "spank" a dog.
