Does anyone recommend a nutritionist? I don’t feel like I’m losing weight but I’ve been working out 3x+ a week and if I do a calorie deficit of 1200-1500 I get headaches :( or feel hungry

What do you all use for investing in stocks? Is Robinhood good for beginners? I’d love to buy stocks and just stick with them for a while (long term)

Hello moms. Any tips on how to wfh with a very needy 8 month old ? Husband isn’t very capable of taking care of baby so he cleans and cooks. I also am too nervous about getting a nanny. I am in Survival mode with constant arguments with my husband stemming from the stress.

Anyone here who has been or going thru arranged marriage prospects, at what point in the course of talking/ meeting do you bring up exclusivity? I am talking to this guy for 3 months given COVID we are not able to meet, but he also seems really into me, we talk everyday and go to sleep talking to each other, but recently I think he is talking to others too and my parents also want me to talk to more guys if I can’t finalize on him. How do I handle this gracefully?

Morning! To better moderation efforts across the platform and try out an experiment where I get women in this bowl to examine their feelings more closely, I have a request: when you report a post select “Other” each time and be honest about what upset you about the comment/post in 2-3 sentences. This will help train moderators and create iteratively improved decisions around which posts they remove. It should also help us identify and name our feelings and their roots more easily!🧚🏼 Thanks! 🥰

I might be laid off soon. Given the job market, I'm thinking to take a career pause and have a baby. Only have finances to support self for 1.5 year though. Assuming no baby daddy, is this a bad idea?

Does anyone else struggle getting over the memories of an abusive relationship? Even we’ll after it is over I keep getting charged flashbacks of awful things said or done to me. That person is long gone but I’m still caught up feeling abused by these bad memories.

Hey ladies, starting an online feminine care business. What are some of the things you would like to see? Also, would you go online to buy feminine care products?

Ex called me up randomly (read didn’t have anyone to bone so he suddenly misses me) and started telling me that he’s not racist (read big time racist). Sometimes you are so lucky that your ex became an ex and you’re given awesome reminders- girl you evaluated him right! Just saying I am so proud of walking out early! Power to all of you in form of good intuition 👍🥂

So many of us exercise all these in this bowl... let’s take a step back and engage in productive convos and really hear what our fellow women have to say.

I have close friends that drink until 5-6am. I was thinking, usually when I’m out I like to be home early like 1-2am. Even when I’m entertaining, they leave early-ish. I like drinking, but I black out very badly and can’t handle myself. So, I drink less now. Am I not fun anymore? My friends have been making me feel that way recently.

Guy no. 1: seeing each other for 4 months, never makes plans with me and when I suggested we see each other this Sunday he said he’s already busy. No explanation. New guy: had an amazing first date and I was excited that maybe I finally met someone who is on the same page on relationships and what he wants: stood me up last night. I know they say you have to be patient, but I’m really heart broken today... it’s so hard to believe I’ll ever find anyone and I’m just so so sad...

Anyone ever gain significant weight from hormonal birth control? Doing my best to get it off but despite calorie deficit and exercise the scale is hardly budging. 👎

I’m stressing tf out. Due to Covid, I went home to my parents to be around and help but we’ve always had a strained relationship. My dad is bipolar and my mom is a control freak tiger mom with a nasty tongue. Covid has not helped our relationship and I began to feel resentful. With the BLM movement, I’ve been getting into arguments with them every day bc they just haven’t been getting it. They don’t see the bigger picture about racism (systemic & general) and abuse of power from cops.

I accidentally missed one birth control pill and even though it took two (one in morning one at night) the next day, I’ve been spotting and cramping like on my period for a week. Is this normal??

I'm of Asian descent and recently I have encountered quite a bit of hate. I would be walking down the street and people would yell things such as "fuck back to your country", and some other (cont)

Has anyone taken a break after living with their SO? We’ve been talking about getting engaged, but I don’t feel ready to say yes. There are things that I need to figure out as an individual that I’m having trouble doing with him around because I get swept up in our love. I love and care for him so deeply, but I also feel so scared of it not working out. I want to tell him that we should take some time and space, but I worry he’ll not want to and then I need to figure out if I should walk away??
