    Dropping by to say hello.

    I watched the "Superskinny Me" from your link. Rather interesting, and depressing at the same time. I really felt for the woman who really started showing signs of developing an eating disorder. Funny though, even though the one gal "succeeded" at reaching the size 0 (and was happy to go back to living her life normally at a higher weight), it made me think of the many posts and posters on MDA who seem to be obsessing over every tiny crumb and morsel of food, agonizing over the macros, and in general, seem to be miserable throughout the process. I dunno. Maybe it's just me thinking that

      Hey Greensprout cute avatar.

      No no, it can get really obsessive. I felt bad for the girl that fell apart in that experiment. They shouldn't have put her on that when she seemed so insecure in the first place. Recipe for disaster.

      It's a touchy subject that the other "succeeded" too, but interesting that she only succeeded through miserable amounts of exercise and starvation.

        ^^I don't do scales, too many variables you never know exactly what you're measuring. The day before yesterday I took a tape measure and measured the thickest part of my saddlebags so that over time I can keep checking back to see if they are shrinking.

          I did watch all 5 parts. Kind of like a trainwreck. Fascinating and disturbing all at the same time. I agree about the mess of conflicting information out there. Low carb/VLC/leptin/carb cycling etc. Trial and error, I suppose. I'm kind of in maintenance mode it seems, in a good place but know that it can be better with less jiggle, but haven't given myself the big push to take off those last 10 or so lbs. I'll get there, but need to get the stress and sleep thing under control first.

            Really bad day. Remember to only eat 1 protein burger from In-n-out, no cheese. The 2 cheeseburgers made me stuffed.

                  I love those soups from WF, too but it's maddening that they don't list their ingredients on the label!

                        Well..just think about your heart and the guy not accepting you for you..then,if you still feel you want to hang out with him..let him spend the cash..it's the least thing he can do after being so mean..just remember..the longer you stay the more difficult it will be to get out of it!

                          Muscular/toned...

                          That model thin look...(she's actually approaching scrawny)

                          Beautiful curves...

                          Healthy...(just my idea of the inbetween)
                          Hello there. I know this is an old post but I'm enjoying an unproductive day here at work browsing the boards. As far as body type goes, they all look damn good. IMO, a woman can be sexy with any body type....its all about self-confidence.

                            ^^ OH what a perfect response! Where do you live and do you want to get dinner sometime? :P

                            Anyway, I haven't updated the past week because I was on Spring Break break. And by break there were hotels with $15/day wi-fi access I was too cheap to purchase. I felt stranded in this weird post-apocalyptic world where I could still get room service.

                            Part of the vacation was spent in Vegas, and for my trangessions I lay to rest in Vegas. As my friend says, "No carb left behind..."

                              Good point! If you didn't see my earlier post though, as anjelevil mentioned...he has his bad points.

                              So I sat down with him at the end of this week and had a long talk. I confessed to him how I felt about the things he's said about my appearance, how I don't feel so connected with him physically because of it, etc.

                              So I told him I need a break. At least 3 months before I even see him again. I said I need time to get myself together, think about the kind of guy he is (shallow and non-committal) and decide whether or not I'm ok with that. I told him he could see other people if he wanted to during this time.

                                Chicken breast without skin is super bland if you don't season it right, but that's about as lean as you can get.
