  1. You decided to go to grad school?!?! CONGRATS!! How very exciting! Where are you going? What's the program? Who are you working with? Squee! I'm sorry about your calves. What on Earth did you do?
  2. While I'm glad you had a check-up six months ago... you didn't have these symptoms six months ago, you had them now. I would still be far less worried about you if you went to the doctor. Hypoglycemia is nothing to shrug off as a glitch. It can kill you. And not in the "smoking will kill you slowly and eventually" sort of way, but in the "you won't wake up the next morning" sort of way. Please be safe and take care of yourself.
  3. Get yourself to a doctor, and quickly, if you think you've had a hypoglycemic incident. No one healthy should ever experience dangerously low blood sugars by simply reducing calories. Without having checked your blood with a meter at the time, or knowing exactly what you've been eating, I can't give any other sage advice except get to a medical professional. Expect to have a full metabolic blood panel drawn and probably a visit to the dietician. I recently experienced something similar, but it was due to my experimenting with a super-low carb diet. It did not work for my body at all and for
  4. Name: werwolf/wolfy Brief overview of goals: Do it my way and remember that what got me where I am will get me where I'm going. I want to stop letting other people *coughmybrother'swifecough* stand in the way of my going to the gym. I want to get back to basics with my diet and eat what feels natural for me. I want to recapture the motivation I used to have. Now that I've stopped feeling bad physically, I'd like to stop feeling bad emotionally. If you follow a specific way of eating: Fruit and veg, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean protein. And never again will I stray. I really don't wa
  5. Nobody else can tell you what's right for your body. Do what you think is right and if it works for you, then that's excellent. No matter what you do or eat or think there's always going to be somebody else trying to tell you that you've done it wrong if you don't love it the way they do. But every body is different and while everyone is entitled to their opinion, they don't have to voice them when it concerns your life. (And you don't have to listen to them. )
  6. Just for the record, although I began the experiment by maintaining my calorie restrictions, I didn't keep them. As soon as I lowered my carbs further, and especially when I entered hardcore carb face-punching, I didn't count a single calorie. I even drank heavy cream straight! lol I wasn't actually trying to break myself, that's just what ended up happening.
  7. Welcome to the club True! Would you like to name your food supervillain? I've got Peanut Butter Mothra and Clawed has Two-Faced Fructose Glucose.
  8. You are the King of Badassery.
  9. Oh Rugger, you just have to use the right equipment.
  10. I may need a definition of decent. I'm always getting it mixed up with decadent.
  11. So you're working, but they pay you. And you're getting a lot of exercise walking, but it makes your feet all pain-y. And you get delicious on-diet prawns at work, but you're always at work. Man they invented the term swings and round abouts just for these situations! lol Keep up the good work (at work and on yourself). The werwolf is proud of you!
  12. I'm the only person I see walking into the building with an insulated lunchbox in the morning, but I don't care. I need food that's good for me and I need it close at hand. These other people can go down and buy just whatever's on offer at the cafeteria or crap from the newsstand, but that's not my style.
  13. Exactly Spezzy! You always were my kinda gal. I have had genuine fear of injuring some of the smaller men I've been approached by. Plus, it's one thing to think you could maybe take them in a fight and another to KNOW you could take them in a fight and that they'd probably hide behind you if ever you were in danger.
  14. I'm just bumping this up in case a certain DarkKent might want to locate us.
  15. DarkKent... you should come see us over at the Girls (and Boys) Who Eat Their Feelings thread. I think you'll find a lot of support and some similar experiences.
  16. Denny, I say you go Full-Viking and grow a proper beard. That would be the hottness.
  17. One-Word Progress Report for Day Eighteen: Shenanigans! Much Wordier Progress Report for Day Eighteen: Fitness Goals: 1, 2, & 3. Today was my day off. I went to the mall and exercised by forcing myself to try on clothes. I'm in the market for a few more work shirts so I don't look like I always wear the same thing (although I do). My shins are super sore from the park. I guess I'm not used to real terrain anymore? Diet Goal: 1. Hardcore carb face-punching Day One. It hurts my soul to have had to do it, but I'm barely eating any vegetables. I have a tablespoon of chopped veg in my egg muf
  18. I come out on top with the cup comparison too. My DD's can take your moobs in any kind of Jell-O match. I've been known to have a celebrity crush on shoter men. I adore David Mitchell and he's only 5'10" (which does make me sad, but I try to forgive him). I've dated taller and shorter (far more were shorter though). So far they've all been unsuitable.
  19. My brother would never forgive me if I didn't put Tailspin on this list. He can still do the Baloo/Carmen Miranda dance from the opening credits.
  20. I cannot wait until I can start putting my good carbs back into my system. Until that time though, it's hardcore and it's ON! Height: I don't get that either Clawed. I have a friend who is 5'3" and used to give me a line of crap about how she liked guys who were over 6'. I told her that was rediculous and introduced her to her husband-to-be (the wedding's in August! Squee!) who is 5'7". It's fine if as a female you prefer a taller man, but don't go stupid about it and screw over your statuesque sisters. All you need is somebody you can wear heels around. Anything else is just greedy. ... Tha
  21. Oh Gov, you're so romantic. lol I've decided there's a term for you guys and what you do and me (and your wife apparently) and what we do. Assuming that we're one happy little pretend paleolithic society, you guys are "defending the tribe" and I'm "tracking the herd." Your skills are strength and powerful bursts of speed. Mine are endurance and distance. So see? Our society needs both the kettlebeller/crossfitters AND the treadmiller/ZUMBAers. (Plus, as you know, I also train for strength. There's no point in tracking the herd if you can't wreslte one of them to the ground and dismember it.)
  22. One-Word Progress Report for Day Seventeen: Psychosis. Much Wordier Progress Report for Day Seventeen: Fitness Goals: 1, 2, & 3. ZUMBA! And yes, I did just shout that and yes, it is a requirement when talking about ZUMBA! It's actually really fun. It would be more fun if I could do it with somebody I like because who doesn't like looking like a moron with friends rather than strangers? Diet Goal: 1. I think the lack of carbs is effecting my judgement. I've decided to stop screwing around and trying to have a nutrient-rich diet and just lower my carb intake as low as is humanly possible.
  23. And, really, knowing the two of us... it could get MUCH MUCH worse. (Or better, depending on your idea of a good time. Meow.)
  24. I wish BBC America would show more matches. Although I am super grateful for the ones we do get! I miss rugby in real life.
  25. I would join just so I could sit and watch. Like some sort of crippled mascot.
