About Me

  1. I had posted on here last month as I was feeling quite down about a long term relationship break up, I have been feeling a bit better since then but recently I feel I am going back the way and I dont know why. It has been 8 months since the split and it was a 6 year relationship, I am trying so hard to stay positive and I am saving to buy my own flat and i have lost weight and healthy but i am just getting frustrated that i am not totally over it. Does anyone else ever have felt like that?
  2. It's been a million years since I've posted here, or even thought about dating! I've (mid 30s, F) been single for >5 years, not a single date nor have I made an effort. My last relationship was LT ~7 years- and it took a very long amount of time to feel over him. I've focused on other areas of life (mostly career and family) instead. Unfortunately I've also been eating poorly. I'm working on losing weight - have lost 30 pounds in past couple months- but haven't been normal weight in probably 8 years. Now some acquaintances are trying to set up a blind date. I agreed they could give him
  3. Since my last relationship. I'm starting to miss having someone, but other then that I still am working on myself. But truly that's a lifelong project. I'm working on losing weight, I'm stable emotionally, my job is stable, may be moving. So working on paperwork for that. If I move I'll have the project of furnishing my appartment. Have a few things but not everything. Case Manager has a way to help with some of that. Though meeting someone isn't a priority it's something I'm starting to think about.
  4. So back in the middle of October I took a trip with my Boyfriend. I ended up wetting the bed, I was also bloated, stomach cramping and gaining weight fast. I saw the Urologist when I got back who blew me off. So I got a second opinion. The second urologist did imaging and saw I had a large mass in my bladder. She just went off the Ct Scan, she didn’t order any further imaging. I had a Cystoscope in November and she saw my bladder looks really good and healthy took a sample to biopsy. The only odd thing was she told me I had a large protrusion inside the bladder. But she said to fol
  5. My partner (we are a lesbian couple) is 5'7" and 170lbs, used to be an athletic US Marine. She is very self-conscious about her weight gain the past couple years. I tell her I do not care what the scale says, and I am being genuine. I love her just the way she is and just want her to be happy. She frequently talks about wanting to go on a diet and exercise plan, but implies in order for her to go through with it, I have to do it with her. Issue is, I am 5'3" and 108 lbs and don't have much weight to lose. My metabolism is just higher than hers. I have no issue picking up my exercise game
  6. I don’t really like talking about my feelings with people because I feel like often times people ‘I think’ I can trust are dismissive of what I’m feeling. That’s why this post is mainly just to vent what I’ve been feeling since the beginning of this year. I don’t even know where to start but I feel like I’ve slowly become numb and I don’t think it’s normal that I haven’t cried about my problems when I remember myself being an emotional and sensitive person years ago... I’d cry over something so small or anything that would just tug gently at my heart strings and now it takes a lot more than
  7. I've started looking into doing yoga, anyone here do it? what are the benefits? I sit for 8 hours a day at my desk in work, which is really starting to strain my neck muscles and shoulders, which are giving me regular headaches. I also started to invite more fruit and vegetables in my diet started to drink alot more water, and ditched the fizzy pop and fatty foods. I'm clearly trying to lose weight, I've started this week. I looked up yoga and it interested me... I obviously know cardio and jogging etc would help. I go to the gym for all that, just wanted to start doing something at h
  8. Hi everyone, Quick background: My boyfriend and I have been together for the last 5 years. I love him more than anything in the world, and he feels the same way about me. We intend to marry in a few years once we're in a more stable financial position. We spend approx. 8 months of a year together, and he flies home to his family for 4. When we met, he was the fittest person I knew. He was one of those naturally talented people who could pick up any sport and be amazing at it. He'd play soccer for 3 hours every day, play volleyball and tennis on the weekends, run 9 miles every morning. Al
  9. Hello, Im a 20 year old girl with many insecurities, including the fact that i look about 15. My body is really skinny, well especially my upper body. My legs look good i guess, but my arms are really small and i have no boobs. I'm 1m65 (5 foot 4) and 58 kg (127 pounds), which seems to be a normal weight, so i'm really confused and annoyed by my weird body. when i try to wear feminine clothes to look my age, it just looks really weird in my opinion. i dont know what the problem is, why my upper body does not "grow" and still looks pubescent. my mother has(had) anorexia so maybe it has s

  11. Hi everyone. My partner is trying to lose weight. I explained what he needs to do and he is doing the ketogenic diet - running mostly on fat as fuel. He keeps measuring the ketones in his urine multiple times a day (which is not needed at all) and it says he has them. Problem is he keeps eating. Too much. He will have the ketones even if he eats too much because the body turns fat into ketones regardles of whether it is stored body fat that he burns or fat that he eats. We all know that to lose weight you must east less. Furthermore, he is constipated a lot of the time. On keto, you should not
  12. Has anyone else tried this diet pill? I tried the original, blue, Zantrex 3. I tried it for a day or two less than a week and didn't seem to lose any weight, even in inches. In fact, though this is not conclusive because I don't have a scale, I continued to gain weight which was the problem that led me to be desperate enough to use Zantrex 3 in the first place. I thought about giving it longer than a week to see if I lost weight, but usually if things work for me with losing weight, they work right away. I have never tried diet pills of any kind or supplements of any kind before, though. Initi
  13. Hello, This one is not for me but for a friend of mine. She is in her late 30s and having a bad crush. The last couple of times she saw this guy (they have been really good friends since teenagers and she already had a crush on him back then) they ended up passionately making out on the sofa, she said it was pure passion, like hair grabbing and touching everywhere like crazy. Nothing else happened because they were not alone for a long time in the room. ANyways, after that she asked him if he likes her and he said that he likes her as a person and cares for her, but he is not attracted t
  14. Hi all, (sorry if this is a repost, last one didnt seem to appear!) We're due to get married in August, so I am at the point where things are needing to be paid for in full! For context, I am 32, she is 28. Sorry, this got a lot longer than I expected (please be patient). Anyway, here's the situation: My other half is fairly demanding of me in terms of having high standards of cleanliness - such as having to do jobs around the house immediately, in the right order, and absolutely perfectly. I've grown used to this, and almost treat it as a game - "lets see if I can get everyth
  15. I don't know what to do here. My ex husband who is remarried for years now, is neglectful of our daughter. She comes to me hair a mess, unclean, and last Friday wearing shorts, sandals, and a jacket! It was 50 degrees, a fall day in Minnesota! Another example is she got a blister on her foot, I said her shoes must be too small, she denied it, I took her for new shoes and she went for a size 7 to a size 9! A blister on her foot and they didn't even notice! It's not lack of money on their end they make over 100K a year it's pure and simple neglect. Even yet another example is she lost wei
  16. Is it true that you can get stretch marks from weight loss? I understand from weight gain because the skin is stretching but I don't understand how this can be with weight loss? Does anyone know? Has anyone developed stretch marks from losing weight?
  17. Hey, So I've been working on gaining weight this year. I'm sick of being the tiny girl, and really i feel disgusting. If you are curious about my size you can ask. I've started going to the gym...I don't do much if any cardio...because when I do I lose weight like crazy. I've been focusing on lifting weights and its been going pretty good. Since Christmas I've gained 7 pounds and feel great. I'm getting good definition too. My doctor also recommended I start taking whey protein because my diet is lacking and I lift so much. But the thing is my weight has stopped...and I can't see myself getti
  18. I have been very overweight for the last 6 years. I used to weigh a healthy 145 and now weigh 230 pounds.. YIKES! I am 5'5 and weigh as much or more than a linebacker (and I am a girl). My fantasy is to find some strict trainer who help me get gorgeous. Has anyone went from fat to fab and have a story to tell? Actually does anyone have any weight loss or gain stories to tell. I just want to feel good about myself and get healthy. But it is hard especially when chocolate calls my name. Bee
  19. Hey Guys!!! I was just watching this episode of dateline and.....well, it was about this rape that occurred. I just want to say THANK YOU GUYS SO VERY MUCH!!! I've just thought of the things I've been through and there has always been someone from this community to love and support me. And it means the world. Rape is always complicated, never clear or easy, and always hard to discuss. Whenever I've needed to vent, or cry, or scream, or comtimplated a new way of thinking, enotalone has been here for me. I mean, this is the best resource ever! Thank you guys! You've a
  20. Ok Whats a healthy way to lose weight? I know it is to eat heathly, exercise and etc But when i exercise like with my arm to lose the weight of them i seam to gain more muscles there which causes my brother to call them 'helga arms'. So has anyone got any good ideas?
  21. It's been 7 months since I broke up with my ex. I've been carrying on for those 7 months very well. The first month was hard but it got easier. We were together for 6 months, I ended it because I knew I couldn't be with her the rest of my life. I still think about some of the times we have together, but rarely. Things still remind me of her... songs, things I see, etc. I think about her maybe 1 time a day, sometimes twice... sometimes none. After I go through things like this I tend to feel the need to improve myself... a lot. I made a plan, I'd lose some weight, and work on impro
  22. Time and time again I keep falling off the wagon and regaining the same 15 pounds, I want this summer to be the last summer I yo-yo diet! Here's to getting the maintaining part of weight loss right.
  23. So I recently moved to a new place and want to lose some right badly. They have a gym, a tennis court, badminton court, yoga, swimming, tennis, squash. Also a running track. The problem is the classes for any of these cost quite a bit. I'm not great at any of them but know how to play. I also currently don't have any friends here yet. What can I do that will help me lose weight ?!
  24. Hey guys, ever since this new Italian deli/market opened in the building where I work, I think I must have gained at least five pounds, maybe more, I don't have a scale. I don't actually mind the extra weight (was probably too thin prior) and love the way my jeans fit now, BUT I was invited to an event next Saturday night and my favorite dress that I wish to wear does not fit!! It's too tight, and some other clothes that I LOVE are too tight too. The only thing I like being tight are my jeans. Which I used to shrink in drier before wearing, now I dont have to. So any ideas on how t
  25. Hey everyone, I realize I just posted yesterday but I'd like to use this platform a bit more whenever I'm having an issue. Its really been helpful. This summer was one of the best I've ever lived through, seriously. I lost a load of weight, got to become really good looking, was in great shape, and was just having a great time. When school started, it was a much different story. I found it much harder to keep up with exercising after school, and also just staying in shape.. I remember being 5'6 and about 128 pounds when school started, which seemed like a very good height and weight
