In response to a confession. Well, yeah, a reverse diet won't have you losing weight--at least not intentionally. The goal is just to be able to up your daily intake without gaining a lot. You are really at a very low intake and I think if you upped it to closer to 1600 with a little activity (weights too, not just jogging), you'd be so much happier. I would be such a crabass if I only ate 1200 calories a day haha. Also...you may want to stay off the scale. I have found that when I do more weight training, I wear smaller clothes at a higher weight than when I just do cardio.

In response to a confession. I'm currently about 125 lbs, maybe a few higher during quarantine. Ultimately I'd like to go down to about 115-118, no lower. I'm short, small-framed , and in my late 40s. I'm only eating 1200 calories until I can jog again, which should be in the next 4-6 weeks. Anytime I gain it goes right to my face and my clothes don't fit as well. Thanks for your advice! Once I can exercise again I would love to try the reverse diet.

In response to a confession. They're probably just getting used to their new home. It's normal for them to get a little shocky and droop a little after you first plant them. Water them in the morning and the evening, when the sun isn't at its hottest. Good luck! My inner plant nerd is super excited for you!

So I finally figured out dermaplaning. I was holding the thing at the wrong angle. It's working pretty good...I have PCOS and a lot of fuzz on my face, and this helps a lot plus it helps exfoliate as well. Not a bad investment overall.

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.
