    .
    I totally relate. My husband is like poetry on skis. Seriously we went with this dude last weekend and I swear he developed a serious man crash on him BC of his epical skiing skills. I jumped a roof though so I felt a little cool.

      HAHAHAHA! Best line ever! I just laughed and choked like a rusty lawnmower.
      I like you. You maketh me laugh!

      Me=terrified of children.
      They stare at me on the subway with their little beady eyes! And they point their kool-aid stained fingers at me!
      NO! I DON'T LIKE YOU! I WILL NOT SMILE AT YOU!
      YOU ALL LOOK LIKE MY BALD UNCLE, EUGENE! LEAVE ME ALONE!

      You could always adopt me and keep me in your basement until I write the next Harry Potter (but even then, don't expect me to pay rent, okthanksbye).
      Why?
      No reason. Just looking ahead, trying to get decent living arrangement since a Creative Writing degree will only guarantee me a carton box by the city dump.

      • me2, you are always so funny. Love it.

        I keep meaning to take Optimus skiing and see how he'd do -- I bet he'll love it as long as he's warm -- but we keep breeding and getting injured at the start of winter and suchlike. But next winter, dammit! It'll happen!! And we'll be all athletic by then and ready to rock, too.

          That is totally what I'm thinking. IF-ing will have to be for the weekends, spring break, etc. BC I still have a voracious appetite BC of all the workouts I do. Maybe I should go on bed rest.

            • Today I have decided that working out & trying to lose weight are oppositional forces. When I lift & get so hungry! So hungry in fact that today I freaking ate 1 egg, 3 bacon, 1/3 container raspberries, lg bowl primal shrimp curry & and ENTIRE can of coconut milk (700 calories!). and I'm not even to dinner yet. Yes I have to eat dinner I am a teacher and on my feet all the live long day. Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar!

              I'm going to curl up on the couch, strap on my feed bag, and watch this little gem:

              or this


              & cry on my heavily padded booty.

                • If not, it should be.

                  Wish I had some advice about the starvationosity post-workout. I guess if you're hungry, eat, eh?

                  • Right, so if I'm hungry eat, but extra calories, regardless of their carb content are not conducive to fat loss (depending on who you ask). I find it bazaar that I am more hungry on weight lifting days than on 4+ hr ski days.

                    I'm still working on the psychological factors influencing my food obsession. Counseling Wed. Mr. counselor thinks I subconsciously keep myself large as a form of protection from unwanted male attention, which I unfortunately received as a teen, if you get my drift. right afterword I gained weight. Sounds all psychobabble but actually rings true. Perhaps this is why sometimes I feel afraid of being little. & I get bingy & self sabotage-y.

                    Finally, we can now all feel better about our faces.

                    P.S.

                    Have you seen Mark's friends on Facebook? It's the who's who of who's hot. Where do these people even come from?

                      I have heard about the "staying large for protection" theory and also the "stay small through anorexia to control the uncontrollable past/trauma" theory and both are interesting; but you do want to be smaller, so are you subconsciously self-sabatoging your weight loss? Is that what doc is implying?

                        Yep, that would be it. I just started dealing w/ this issue this year. Before that I locked it up for 15 yrs, never told a single soul. I finally told my counselor (of 7yrs) & husband a couple months ago. That's when this whole idea came out. I found this, which is helpful. Healing takes time, I just have to remind myself of that.



                        "Many survivors battle with this issue and for some it is a life and death battle. Food our Friend - our Opponent.

                        Eating or not eating is our control over our body image and, to us, protection; whether we are fully aware of this or not.

                        And many survivors battle with stomach or intestinal problems. We have held the horrors of childhood so tight within us and we do not want them to come out. And this leads to clinching our insides and our emotions. Because relaxing even for a moment means letting our guard down. And that means new attacks, this has been true for some survivors. (See Re-victimization)...

                        The secrets of abuse, unhealed emotional wounds, (PTSD, Triggers), re-victimized, and protection translates to What, When and How we eat.

                        Becoming an adult, being thousands of miles away from the female/male predator and even the death of the predator(s) does not protect us. Being overweight, underweight or strong is our protection. We want to go unnoticed, we don't want to be an attractive draw to anyone. It is our way of protecting the adult and the wounded child inside.

                        Overeating may be an attempt to fill the sense of emptiness within. If we continue to eat our thoughts are on the food not the painful memories. – If we do not eat or limit the food intake that leaves more time to do other tasks, such as hobbies, exercise, and etc, our thoughts are on the task at hand not the painful memories. Either way it is the occupation of the mind on something else and we get the benefit of protection.

                        Whether under or over weight. Diet, exercise, appropriate foods and even radical surgery may benefit the appearance for awhile; ultimately it is the healing of the deep wounds that will truly benefit the survivor. The healing process is slow hard work but with healing comes change. The weight lose or weight gain did not happen overnight. Therefore, the gain or loss of weight will take time as well. Being the so called perfect weight is not the goal; Healing is the goal.

                        You are worth the time and effort it takes to heal. You are more than the abuse and trauma and more than the past. The future is yours. And most importantly, you are worth loving. If possible a specialized therapist, appropriate books, your own inner strength and hopefully a support person or group are a good defense for eating disorders and emotional healing."

                          • I'm Baaaaaaaaaaaaack & I promise not to talk about bad touching.

                            **Prolonged awkward silence**



                            Whats new?

                            - I never left PB.
                            -Still a size 10
                            -Read Deep Nutrition wherein I leaned that you are only healthy if you are hot. It is only about hotness despite the fact that the greatest minds in history were never dreamy, you were not properly formed unless you are hot. Case in point: The Kardashians.
                            -I'm stumbling my way through Jack Kruse's Quilt.
                            -Figured out I'm estrogen dominant & am using progesterone cream.
                            -Still have yet to truly IF
                            -Summer makes my more lax, more cocktails on patios, berries, dairy, & chocolate. But I'm still the same size as when I was VLC.
                            -Lifting 4x/wk. + bike rides, yoga, & a HIT workout.
                            -Pulled my hammy in Jan. auditioning for a big girl chorus line (JK it was skiing)
                            -Act like I am on speed-laced ecstasy due to my increased energy & happy mood.
                            -Eating way fewer calories but I'm still no Kate Moss.
                            -I still want to be bangin' but maybe I will settle for bad ass.

                            This is me downhill mountain biking. Wheeeeeeeeeee!

                              You suck :/

                              Who wants to look like Kate Moss? She looks like dental floss.

                              But whatever. I still don't buy all the complaining. Maybe this is the weight you need to be at, 'cause that's your healthy weight.

                              (Then again, I'm in the same boat and I want to motherfucking drown this boat).

                              Maybe if a miracle happens and what I'm doing now works, I'll be a testament to hope, and I'll help a sista out.
