I just started seeing a HAES dietitian, and it's amazing
What the title says. Like so many people, I've spent my life buying into diet culture to some degree, and I've lost and regained weight more times than I can count. When I listen to MP, I find myself feeling really validated, but also skeptical that I could actually let go of dieting.
My GP suggested I see a HAES-focused dietitian (my GP is awesome), and we had our first session yesterday, She actually said, "Diets just lead to weight gain." She also suggested I might have binge-eating disorder, which, duh, but it felt so affirming to hear someone else say it. And she said the solution was to allow yourself any food you want, as long as you're legitimately hungry. So figuring out what hunger actually feels like is going to be our focus.
I told her that one of my favorite meals is a sweet potato with almond butter and quinoa with avocado (and a shitload of nutritional yeast), but that on Weight Watchers, that's a day's worth of points. She just shook her head and she said, "But you could eat three Oreos for a third of that, right?" I said yes, and she said, "This is why Weight Watchers is bullshit. You should never, ever feel guilty for eating a sweet potato and an avocado."
I asked her if she knew about MP, and she didn't, but said she'd listen. Honestly, I haven't felt this affirmed and relieved in forever. It was genuinely life-changing.
TERFs — specifically modern transmisics — claim to be feminists, but are running a playbook from patriarchal theofascist groups.
The modern transphobes get the label “TERF” from 1970's trans-exclusionary radfems — who were a model group for a wedge between trans women and cisgender women.
Modern transphobes literally, on paper, in writing, in court documents, which were authored by the groups themselves, admitted to using radfems as fronts for their patriarchal politics.
Further, while it is a useful heuristic to look at the behaviour of the members of a group and infer something useful about the precepts of that group,
That does not stand in for proper rational thinking and ontologising.
Radfems are a minority of feminists. Trans-exclusionary radfems a smaller minority still. Inferring anything about all feminists from the behaviour of one small minority isn't even a useful heuristic - it's just you lying to yourself.

Yeah I'm sure I'm the exact person you're calling out and I think I'm gonna get downvoted but I'll try and mansplain. A lot of people seem to think this about a moral high ground, Tuckers phone s*x, and the video with Meyer and some blonde college girl in a bar. Nope, not even close... that's the tip of the iceberg, and I'll get into all of it below. I don't want a perfect, bible thumping squeaky clean coach, but Urban Meyer has a documented history of creating a toxic program, abusing and berating coaches and players, covering up scandals and causing drama, and then "retiring" for medical reasons only to come back as a head coach somewhere else shortly later. Urban hasn't been a college coach for 5 years! He isn't getting any younger, and the entire CFB world has been turned upside down by the portal and NIL since he left it.I 100% believe Meyer, if hired, would have some success for maybe a couple years, get the bag and take the money and run with another health issue after it blows...

Completely agree, the amount of PSU AND UM flairs trying to guilt us into feeling bad for wanting to win with urban was crazy. Truth is, they dont want urban here because they dont want us to win. (0)
Where is his team of all murderers? The crowd loves Paul Crewe, JamesFerrel, Earl Maggot, and Cheezeburger Eddy. (1)

There are 2 things I will say about Urban Meyer.Sexual Assault is more immoral than cheating.When you're good, being immoral is more acceptable. That's not how it should be but it is a reality.Oh and another thing. WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU EXPECTING A BETTER THAN 8-4 RECORD BEATING UM MORE THAN 20% OF THE TIME? WE ARE MSU NOT OSU YOU DUMB FUCK! (-3)
Onfield is 99.9% of what goes into a college program. Look how fast Mel Tucker's antics and slogans wore out after 2021. Let's be adults here, the university absolutely is behind Mel and not firing him until all the facts come out if he wins 10 games last year. But he won 5 and his first 2 games looked like dogshit this year. Urban Meyer put an overwhelming amount more people in the NFL than he did in prison for murder. So I'll ask again. What on field concerns are there? I'm all about the merit. (1)

autodrama: automating away the jobs of dramautists. Ping HeyMoon if there are any problems or you have a suggestion
It's 8:13AM and I wake up hung over as shit in my hotel room. I look to my left and see an overweight Dr. Feelgood snoring. I don't remember exactly what happened last night but I'm sore everywhere. I look over at my cell to read the notification that woke me up.
“Congrats, Frozen. You've hit your numbers for this quarter!” a text from my boss reads. Darn, I guess I did put out. So glad I finally got 200 doctors. That bonus is mine!
I put on a tight black dress and heels and take the elevator to the lobby. The doors open to a sea of more fake blondes than the Rethuglican National Convention. I quickly scarf down my company provided breakfast (20mg instant release Adderall and an expresso) and head to the conference room in the nick of time.
Pulsating disco music fills the air. Plumes of smoke emanate from the front of the stage as colored strobe lights take out the 3 epileptics in the audience.
A Gavin Newsom look-a-like (with whiter teeth) takes the stage leaving a snail trail of hair gel in his wake.
“We've had some big wins this year,” he says. “We have seen an increase in prescriptions for Marseylumimab after it was approved by the FDA in Q2 for Transmisia. Q4 bonuses will be issued next week to reflect a whopping $1.2B increase in clinically questionable claims to Medicare. As always, you'll have the option to choose between hookers and coke for your disbursement.”
I start to ponder which gigolo from cowboys4angels.com I'll hire when the room suddenly gets quiet.
“But,” he says, tears welling in his eyes, voice breaking. “We must always remember what this is really about.”
His chin quivers and a single tear streams down his face. He collects himself, looks up at the crowd and wipes away the tear.
“Putting. The. Patient. First.”
“Now let's go out there and make some frickin' money 😎”
Struggling to maintain a positive view of anyone who never masks - my inner world is collapsing
Hey guys, just having a bit of a vent. I'm really, really struggling to believe in the good of humanity at the moment.
It's got to the point where I'm spending hours every day trying to reconcile how people who otherwise behave kindly and thoughtfully are not taking any covid precautions at all and are apparently fine if that means they'll kill or disable vulnerable people like me.
I've sort of dropped my friends because whenever I think about them going into medical facilities or public transport without a mask on, which I know is their modus operandi, I feel so angry and so hurt, I can't bring myself to interact with them. I just don't want to be part of a society where even people I love(d) apparently see vulnerable lives like mine as being worth less than the dirt on the sole of their shoe.
I definitely want to find a therapist to discuss this with specifically. But if anyone can relate or has been able to successfully reconcile the two, or if they have any suggested reading etc, I'd be really grateful. I'm not distressed or mentally unwell but this feels like it's eating my brain alive.
Blessed are you, LORD our God, Ruler of the Universe, who has not made me a ZCC user.
Basically it comes down to compartmentalizing relationships and recognizing that they fall into different tiers of trust—I.e., this person is a casual acquaintance who can handle talks about hobbies but nothing deeper; this is a person who can discuss deeper topics like bigotry or abuse but not Covid; this is my ride-or-die who is on the same Covid-cautious page as me; etc.
It hurts to realize that the vast majority of the people in our lives will not reach that last tier. Lots of grief and mourning for dead or dying relationships for sure. But it's easier to move on and accept things for what they are once you've correctly identified a person's trust tier and hold appropriate levels of expectations—instead of holding them to a standard you know they won't meet. The next step is to look for and build new, additional relationships when you're ready.
Where's the dating subreddit for the Covid conscious? 💖
I keep in mind how fortunate I am to be able to be so careful. I work mostly from home, I can afford to have my groceries delivered, and don't have school aged kids. I'm old enough to not miss going to bars and concerts and even movies in the theaters. Not trying to date. I found a mask that fits me and isn't terribly uncomfortable (and I can afford to buy them). I live in a big enough house to provide room for someone to quarantine when there's any possibility they've been exposed. My sacrifices are not that great. To accomplish the same for someone else might be very difficult or impossible.
These people should be dragged from their homes in the night and forced into
concentration camps moderately busy restaurants.
It's a messed up world and most of our friends and family are doing the best they can under difficult circumstances. They've been subject to one of the most effective and widespread disinformation campaigns, and on top of that peer pressure is a heck of a powerful force for most people. Humans at large are poor at calculating risk, or taking nuanced stances on things, we want a consistent black/white world.
Republichuds rivalling foids with their pettiness, you love to see it! Hopefully his next act is to require AOC to submit to an in-person foot inspection.
I don't trust citizen journ*lists because they could be misleading, possibly have a certain agenda, and no code of ethics.
- YouveBeenEatenByAGrue : Y'all have silly opinions
Missouri high school teacher is put on leave after school officials discover her OnlyFans : "I have a 7 year old at school right meow, I wouldn't feel exactly comfortable knowing his teacher butt fricks herself on camera every night. I'm all for s*x work, but let's keep that and children education fully separated please"
The problem is the two can never keep separate. You're talking about s*x work on the most popular site for it on the internet, and most of these workers advertise their page on other social media's. A huge proportion of teenagers time is spent online and on these sites, leading them to find their teachers more often than not. After discovery, these teachers face ungodly amounts of distraction and harassment making it impossible to teach in a constructive environment. I have no problems with s*x work, and won't teach my son to view them any lesser than any other person
lol ur sons gonna date a whore
“The teachers are so underpaid they are turning to s*x work…”
AmeriKKKa concludes: “we should fire the teachers.”
They will do literally anything to not pay a decent wage.
lol more like "Silly whore blows out her butthole nightly for peanuts and this makes her impossible to respect."
