I looked up the best exercises that max out testosterone.
Squatting came up on the list.
I looked up best exercise to gain muscle.
Squats came up.
I looked up best exercises to lose weight.
Squats came up.
It might not be the number 1 in any category, but it is apparently in every category. So I am doing squats from now until I lose the rest of my weight.
I realized that just walking wasn't going to be enough to lose the rest of my weight and so I have to shift gears to actual moderately intense exercise every day.
I can do 100+ squats no problem.
I do squats until my leg bends 90 degrees when walking down the stairs and I have to manually orient my movement.
On to the next topic. Does anybody else suffer from the curse of inceldom?
The curse of inceldom:
Every time you make some improvement on yourself or upgrade yourself the women around your vicinity become hotter by an equivalent margin such that the gap between you and the women around you remains constant.
By this law of inceldom the only way to move yourself past the point of inceldom in the become a chad of 8-10 on the looks and personal development scale.
The women around me are being simulated as 7.5 to 8s now so I am assuming that I am a 6 now.
Anybody else have that happen to them?
My material universe theory is that you only really notice the people within +2 or -2 of yourself when walking down the street and not going out of your way to focus on everybody.
Did all journos get a memo to write the exact same article?!
what is going on
why are they doing this
A reminder: you don't need to pay Big Pharma to lose weight. Keto, thinspo and divine intervention are sufficient (Seriously though: pray to God)
BUT taking ozempic is still better than harming yourself and the people you love by subjecting them all to the horrors of your obesity:
^ Genuinely amazing.
Don't let Thanksgiving ruin your body goals. Eat meat and have small portions. May you and your loved ones have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
My observations as I have continued to lose fat.
1. Am less tired every day.
2. Sleep better and need fewer hours to stay active.
3. Brain runs better
4. Look better
Part of it may also be eating better and being more disciplined but its all one cycle and everything supports and strengthens everything else in my experience.
Please if you care about yourself don't be fat. If you are already fat work on losing that weight safely over time.
Don't give up. Get healthier. Live the live you deserve. I believe in you.
You should preferably never get past overweight at your worst.
Being obese will actively frick with your every day life.
Don't do it to yourself, and if you have already done it to yourself you got to reverse.
Eat better. Walk more. Find things and work to occupy your mind.
I believe in you.
Keep losing fat.
My status: still overweight but belly keeps shrinking. Belly goes below the chest if I hold my breath the slightest amount now. Just a bit more to go. Then tone out the muscles once reach normal weight.
Your status: Getting motivated by this text and working to reach normal BMI if not already there, and working to get fit and strong if already at normal BMI.
Being a burger is 100% a disability:
Last month, Gabie Caballero got a call from her brother inviting her to his home in Houston for a Thanksgiving feast. "As soon as he mentioned food and Thanksgiving, I felt overwhelmed," Ms. Caballero, 46, said.
Ms. Caballero takes Mounjaro, a diabetes drug similar to Ozempic, for weight loss. She is one of many AmeriKKKans gearing up to face a food-focused holiday while taking a medication that can extinguish one's appetite.
It's been the year of Ozempic. The drug, approved in 2017 for diabetes but now widely known for its weight-loss effects, saturated TikTok and became fodder for late night shows and tabloid headlines and even a punchline at the Oscars.
Ozempic and drugs like it radically reduce how much someone wants to, or physically can, eat. People feel fuller faster, and for many, cravings fade away. The drugs can also induce unpleasant gastrointestinal side effects: vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, queasiness that some compare to morning sickness, and stomach pain.
This all can seem fundamentally incompatible with Thanksgiving.
At its best, the holiday is a day of gratitude, gathering and indulgence --- an opportunity to enjoy heaps of home-cooked food, followed by the option of unbuttoning one's jeans or slipping into sweatpants to watch a football game.
But Thanksgiving also has a reputation for producing conflict: Many come face to face with the relatives they avoid the rest of the year, and find themselves drinking a little too much wine and arguing about politics, or worse, Tofurkey.
Tensions are high. Plates are full. Families may be quick to judge. What happens when weight loss drugs collide with Thanksgiving?
'Why aren't you eating?'
Last Thanksgiving was Yanet Coombes's first major holiday since beginning Mounjaro to treat her Type 2 diabetes. She and her husband spent 10 hours preparing classic AmeriKKKan dishes and Peruvian additions like papa a la huancaína, a spicy yellow sauce poured over potatoes, for a group of about 15 people they hosted at their home near Chicago.
When Ms. Coombes, 41, sat down to eat very small portions, an interrogation broke out at the Thanksgiving table. "There was a lot of 'Why aren't you eating?' or 'Why isn't there more on your plate?'" she said. She batted some questions away with sarcasm and answered others, but they continued: "'You're not hungry?' 'You don't feel like you're missing out?'"
While other holidays draw people away from the table with religious services or gift giving, there are no such distractions on Thanksgiving, said Amy Bentley, a food historian at New York University. "It really is just the meal," she said. "That's it, that's the holiday."
The typical menu is a lineup of "very salty, very heavy, very gratifying" dishes, Dr. Bentley said, even as some AmeriKKKans have reckoned with the myths at the heart of the holiday and modified the meal with additions from other cuisines.
That reality has sent many people who take Ozempic and similar drugs into preparation mode. Some are wondering whether they should tell family members that they are on the medication, to avoid hurting feelings with their smaller appetites, while others are worried about inviting judgment. On Reddit forums, there's frantic chatter about skipping doses: Should a person sacrifice their weekly shot so they can pile on the pumpkin pie?
Dr. Scott Hagan, an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Washington who studies obesity, said patients ask him if they can skip doses of Ozempic or similar drugs before a food-focused event like Thanksgiving. He advises them not to, for a few reasons: For people with diabetes, missing a dose of Ozempic and then consuming a high-carb meal could lead to a blood sugar spike. And when people restart their doses, they can experience more intense side effects.
Those who do push through the discomfort of eating a larger amount than they have gotten used to while on the medication may experience acid reflux, he said. They may feel so full that they are in pain.
"It can be a really tough holiday," Dr. Hagan said.
'Eating habits are so on display'
Regina Foley, 59, said she used to look forward to Thanksgiving because it was the one day when her eating wouldn't stand out. Now that she's on Wegovy, this is the first year she is not getting excited about sweet potato pie with marshmallows or Pillsbury biscuits. "It's like I can take or leave it," she said. "It doesn't have that surge of adrenaline and anticipation like it used to."
Her 21-year-old daughter, Maeve, is also taking the drug. She started a few months after her mother, who had gushed about how the medication cut down on her spiraling thoughts about food.
Maeve was used to confiding in her mother about her meal-related anxieties: During past Thanksgivings, she would eat first with her mother, father and brother, then head to her boyfriend's house for a second meal, where she would eat until she felt incapable of moving. Guilt and shame soon set in, and she would text her mother, who would write back saying she got it, that she was there for her daughter.
"The compulsive nature of it, the free rein to just eat a bunch of crap, is what has changed," Regina said.
This year, Maeve said she and her mother will be able to enjoy the day at home in Old Saybrook, Conn., instead of dreading its aftermath.
"I'm actually excited about spending time with my parents and my brother and then my boyfriend's family without that just major amount of anxiety that I usually have regarding food," Maeve said. "I think it'll definitely be a new experience. And having my mom to do it with me is going to be really nice."
The holiday highlights family members' eating habits, said Adrienne Bitar, a lecturer in AmeriKKKan Studies at Cornell and the author of a book on diet culture. Any deviation from the standard menu --- whether because of Ozempic, a food allergy or veganism --- can attract outsize attention. Family members may offer unwanted observations on a person's body, or moral judgments about using the drugs to lose weight.
"I'd be hard-pressed to find another occasion in which someone's eating habits are so on display in a setting that is often marked by a lot of family tension and fraught family dynamics," Dr. Bitar said.
She also thinks the drugs may change how people respond to questions about their eating. "Instead of saying, 'Hey, Uncle Bob, butt out,'" she said, someone who has been prescribed Ozempic by a doctor might respond along the lines of: "This is a medical decision not up for debate between you and me at the Thanksgiving table."
Alexa Rimmer, 29, remembers how self-conscious she felt last Thanksgiving. She had been taking Mounjaro for two months and was nervous about whether her mother and grandmother would comment on how little she was eating --- a single slice of turkey, a spoonful of mashed potatoes, a sliver of pumpkin pie.
"My mom would always do the stereotypical, 'This is the day to go all out, don't feel guilty' --- that type of thing where you're feeling the pressure to be eating a lot with your family. That's the event everyone's participating in to bond," she said.
She was pleasantly surprised when no one commented on her portions. She had decided not to tell anyone in her family that she was on the medication, afraid they would view it like an eating disorder. "I was really worried that it would open up a conversation about like, 'Oh, is this a problem, are you uncomfortable with yourself?'" she said.
Weeks later, when she was back home in Jupiter, Fla., for Christmas, her mother pulled her aside to ask if she was on a weight-loss drug. Alexa told her. Her mother had a confession, too: She was on Ozempic.
Back in February, I was 37% body fat and 182lbs. As of the 22nd October 2023, I am about 144lbs and 29.6% body fat. I am biologically female, so being below 30% body fat is great. I would like to say, that height has a major difference too. I am 157.5cm or around 62in w/o shoes on. You guys can go back to hating morbidly obese people now.

Right, so first of all you should apply to join the forum bc it's great:
Also you should follow their xitter:
What is Skinny Gossip? Let's have this redditor mansplain it to us:
TIL there is a blog called "Skinny Gossip" which promotes people being extremely thin and hatefully bashes people who aren't.
Keyed af, right? SG Came about in 2010 and has numerous threads on celebrities. Their takedowns subforum has caused innumerable amounts of sneed and cope elsewhere on the world wide web:
And you can only see this specific hot goss if you register. Just look at the title of some of these threads: "Reverse thinspiration", "Ungrateful whinging models mega-thread", "Fat people say the darnedest things". Wouldn't you love to know what these 40-year-old valley girls are saying on these topics?
Even if you stay logged out though you can still browse their celebrity threads (Britney Spears, for example: https://www.skinnygossip.com/community/threads/britney-spears.783 ) and other niche topics (like this neat thinspo dump https://www.skinnygossip.com/community/threads/thinspo-dump.3780 )
Today we will be highlighting a few of the latest (2023!) comments from the Taylor Swift thread (linked above). Enjoy.
Now that her newest album has been so successful, we can safely confirm that her peak sales eras also correspond with her slimmest eras.
I hate this outfit so much, but love the way her arms look here.
Spoken like someone blinded by their problem area arms. Dw babe just lose like 10 more lbs and you'll see the error of your ways #itgetsbetter ❤️
look at her xylo showing!
Her body nowadays really reminds me of young Kelly Clarkson, around 2006 or so. Which again reminds me of all the tabloids bashing her for being fat and having shape wear show at times. And Bridget Jones' body... I find it interesting that we've come to a point where this body is no longer considered fat.
She did a pap walk in New York a few days ago, I guess to show everyone how she's thriving and totally wasn't just dumped by some non-entity actor.
Aside from the fashion crimes in this photo, I find it funny how she's always careful to associate with women of a similar or larger body type to herself. In her "skinny" era, she was frequently pictured with models like Karlie Kloss or Lily Aldrige. After gaining weight, she restructured her friend group to include the above body types, which range from chubby to average at best, and is never pictured with her old model friends (other than Gigi, but I don't think I need to comment on that). Pretty classic cheerleader effect.
Also can't help but wonder if she instructed them all to cover up and wear bulkier clothing, to offset her own chubbiness... Everyone else is dressed like it's early spring, meanwhile Taylor is front and centre in a very ill-advised mini dress.
Anyway, here's some vintage eyebleach so this thread has something nice to look at. She never hung out with SG skinny models, but it's better than her current posse:
I would assume she probably doesn't fit in with those model types anymore. You can't exactly hang around people so glaringly different than you when you're insecure like her. Besides, she keeps Lana Del Rey in good company. That's all you need to know about her.
It's a shame because I really like her music but every time I see her thighs I just vom in my mouth a little. I didn't realise how big she was because I'd never cared about her up until recently.
Whenever I see a tall fat person I think it's such a waste of height.
We need a thin people ping
So recently I've lost a shit-ton of weight, not that I was overweight before, but now I'm underweight (don't know by how much, I don't weight myself and refuse to go to the doctors lol, I haven't been in like 5 years.)
I really enjoy my weight right meow, I feel very feminine with how small my waist is compared to my chest, and still want to lose more weight if it isn't to more detrimental to my health lmao.
Anyway one of my uncles commented on my weight 1-1 and said that I need to be eating more, and I was making everyone worry and being selfish. This made me really mad, and I ended up saying something along the lines of "well, you didn't say anything when _______ became obese, so why are you worried about me.", and then walked away.
For context, most of my family on my mom"s side is from the south, specifically the rural areas where 90% of the population is obese, hyper religious Christian who drink mountain dew with every meal. But me wanting to be on the thinner side is the real problem.
Rant over, frick the normalization of obesity
