Nothing like meal prep for the week or two. Veggie stir-fry with chicken, whole roasted cauliflower, cut up carrots, hard boiled eggs, and coconut milk chia pudding.

Both my mom and dad used to comment and nit pick on my weight constantly. It's hard to understand because I was NEVER fat until I got older. Then I developed a food obsession and started binging. I gained a lot and then swung the other to way to extreme dieting. This led to an eating disorder. Even when my parents were well aware of my disordered eating they'd comment on my weight. "Oh you look like you gained quite a bit this month!" or "Oh those pants don't look good with that extra five pounds' I Mean WTF? It took years and years to stop with the destructive eating patterns but I still hate how I look a lot of the time.

I'm so terrified of getting the form of Alzheimer's disease my mom has. It's an aggressive form and it's genetic, but I'm doing everything in my power to prevent it. I eat a lot of omega 3 fats, mostly plant-based diet, some fish, and I avoid a lot of processed foods. I also am trying to stay off of as many prescription meds as I can. I have to wonder if my mom being on a statin from the time she was in her late 30s was responsible for part of the disease. I am in my late 30s now and my cholesterol is stellar. I also exercise very regularly and I'm trying to get my sister to start working out too because I really would be sad if she gets it. We're also both practicing our second languages--Spanish for me and Japanese for her.

As a kid, my grandma used to say all sorts of horrid things to me about my body. I went through puberty early and was a little pudgy, but she acted like I was so huge. At the time, I took her word for everything because she was an adult and I figured adults were always right. When I grew up, I realized she said that stuff because she had zero self-esteem. She had barely any education, an abusive SOB of a husband, a menial job, and she was overweight. So she got some sort of big kick out of making horrid comments to me and my mom about our weight. This is a big part of why I haven't talked to my grandma in maybe 15 years or so.

In response to a confession. i haven't read the book but i'm familiar with it. i agree with you. while people can be healthy in a wide range of sizes, people at either end of the spectrum (extremely fat or thin) can have health issues related solely to their weight or lack thereof.

In response to a confession. Gross.. If I see mold on any food I'm about to eat, it goes in the trash. No way am I going to scrape it off and then eat it anyway. Even if it is supposed to be moldy. Hard pass.

Has anyone read the book "Health at Every Size"? My therapist wants me to read it and although I love the concept that you can be overweight and healthy, I don't think you can be "healthy" at EVERY size. I think there's a point at which you can't really deny that your body is no longer person-sized.

In response to a confession. Sauerkraut is supposed to get moldy. Just scrape the mold off the top and let it keep going. I've made lots of homemade sauerkraut and it's always amazing.

! I always kinda use drew Barrymore as a barometer as to how well I'm aging. It's official. I'm aging well. Better than Drew. Still love her but I have better skin at this point. Now it's on, Angelina Jolie. You're my new barometer.

Not the Official Fascia Blaster. But the same concept:
