    I'm probably not the right size yet to find any that would fit me properly, but I'll be in the market for some next year. Surely they make such objects. Also, sock garters. Please?
    Boxers for women are called Tap pants and Peti Pants. They are made of slinkier material then men's boxers.

    Lodge seems to have forgotten how to make a smooth-bottomed pan any more, any way--we have vintage cast iron we use when we fry or saute.
    We just bought a nicely smooth-bottomed 10" skillet a couple of months ago. Adding to the collection... like we need any more! The main frustration is that we've run out of room in the oven to store them, don't have room in the cupboards, and we rent our place -- so we can't hang up a substantial enough pot rack to hang them on. Every time we actually want to use the oven, it looks like a foundry exploded all over the kitchen counters!

    Got rid of all our other "non-stick" frying pans and soup pots... have a couple of RevereWare sauce pans that I've only used for boiling of eggs for the last 10 months. Everything else is done in the ol' Lodge cast iron!

    As far as 'mature' women needing less iron...until I know for sure that it's causing any problems, I'll stick (or not -- lol) with my heavy metal.
    Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
    Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
    Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

    real frustration: in the mix since 3/20. it's not working.
    high fat, lower fat, higher carb, lower carb, track every morsel, track nothing,
    12-1400 cal, 18-2000...movement almost every day, heavy things, bodyweight,
    moderate cardio, HIIT...wtf?

    guess i'll try the no dairy route. it's only 7 oz of 2% plain greek yogurt or 4% cottage cheese
    a few times a week.

    i've not got much to lose. maybe, what i perceive to be 10 lbs and the fat% that goes along with.
    i'm two weeks shy of my 50th birthday. i wanted a magnificent body present to wake up to.

    this is me venting. frustrated and momentarily saddened. guess i'll go motorcycle riding.

    Mixing it up constantly for only a month hasn't given your body any chance to adjust! Stick with the basics, chill out, and enjoy the lifestyle. If you only have 10 to lose, it's going to take longer. I had to ditch my weight goals- not because PB stopped working, but because weight is a terrible way to measure health. In the past month I haven't lost a pound, but I've lost over 5% body fat. The body changes are coming from the inside out. You've had 50 years to make it what it is. Give it more than a month to be marvelous!

    sounds like a good idea.

    I'm afraid today's "frustration" is one that you have all read before countless times... I bought new shorts a few weeks ago, and they were a little tight. I put them on today, and now they're loose.

    And I've had to finally retire my favorite jeans. I have new ones, but they're new. You know, they're not all soft and comfortable yet.
