Seedlings planted in soil now, but I'm kinda worried since they startled to look wilted. It was 3 days in my hot apartment before I could get them to the garden.

In response to a confession. Even in a small space you can have a kickass garden. Consider growing some corn amongst your climbers, to help with space, and don't plant your zucchini and cucumbers too close to each other. Cross pollination and all. Consider the 3 sisters- corn, beans, squash. Certain plants grow better when they're together. If you have bunnies around, consider grating up some Irish Spring soap and sprinkling it around the perimeter of the garden to keep them away. And you might want to watch a video on how to trim the suckers from your tomato plants. Also, once your garden is in, consider learning how to plant your veggie scraps. Half my garden is made up of leftover romaine, celery, carrots, onions, potatoes, green onions, and sprouted garlic lol. Have fun! I love playing in the dirt. Cheaper than therapy and you get tomatoes!

Man, I gotta stop picking rhubarb. All it does is make me want to make rhubarb crisp, which is addictive.

In response to a confession. Can I ask how much you weigh now? I definitely would recommend you try a reverse diet and try to gain a little bit of muscle mass so you can up your intake. I'm up to 1600 calories a day now and my weight jumped up to 107, but my clothes fit the same. Remember that the scale isn't the ultimate goal--if you can weigh 5 lbs more and eat 500 calories a day more food, wouldn't you do that? You won't get obese on 1500 calories a day of food and the key is to build up gradually so your body is used to the increase. Plus I've noticed I have a ton more energy than I did before.

In response to a confession. Through work, I got a hold of some seedlings from an urban agriculture nonprofit. There's eggplant, tomato, zucchini, banana pepper, squash, and cucumber. So, asked my landlord if they had any extra space in their backyard since the wife is a gardener. They said yes and will show me the space on Monday! You have no idea how excited and nervous! I am notorious for killing all houseplants, so I hope these veggies will actually grow! Ladies, would love any extra advice you might have about beginner gardening. I'm only going to using about 4ft x 8ft of space.

This is super dumb and it amounts to nothing, but if I could be friend's with a celebrity it would be Jennifer Garner. I follow her on Instagram and she's so funny on her pretend cooking show segments. It's also very cool to see how she is making a difference in the world helping and supporting others.

In response to a confession. Thanks, OP here. I do lift arm weighs and do some light sit-ups, and push ups but I don't really burn many calories. All the calorie calculations online give me under 1300 calories. I stay closer to 1200 to account for any miscalculations( I count calories, weigh and measure everything). I would love to maintain on 1500-1600 but I would gain weight without burning any calories.

In response to a confession. I'm 5'3", 104 lbs. I am trying to get to where I can eat without worrying so much about going over my calories, etc. I think I was in a big deficit before and I'm coming back closer to my maintenance. If you're only eating 1200 calories a day right now, you are likely no where near enough to be getting enough of the nutrients you need to be healthy. Even if your ankle's not functional, you can still do arm exercises to try and get your heart rate up a bit and allow yourself to eat more calories. 1200 calories a day would only be advisable for a very short term crash diet.

I had to throw away almost 1/2 of the 1.5quart of cookies and cream ice cream. Or else I would eat the whole dang thing in an entire sitting since that's pretty much what I did to start. I feel super sick now. It's been a while since I had that much ice cream. Next time, I will buy a pint.
