Recently restarted strength training. I had my baby about a year ago and my tummy (37.5 inches at the belly button) is just huge. Checked with my gyno and she rules out Diastasis Recti and said all of it was just fat 🥲Any ladies who had luck with strength training and reducing tummy fat? I’m not looking at immediate results or even spot reduction- just curious how it looks like after a year or two. Female , 32 year old.

Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
Neighbor’s kid started practicing piano all day long. I support the learning but goddamn the kid sucks at it, and it’s hard listening to this trap house dubstep jazz all day long while I work, and I don’t want to wear my headphone all day as a solution. How to approach their parents? Can you even lower the volume of practicing piano?
My husband and I are expecting and both of us have moms diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD.) My dad passed away earlier this year and my FIL lives in Australia and is the nicest man. He’s just far away from us since we’re based in the NE.

Can anyone relate and/or have a similar situation?

I’ve been asked to weigh in on how to improve my firms parental leave policy. It’s currently 8 weeks paid for birth parent with an extra week for each year at the firm (up to 12 weeks total) and 2 weeks paid for non-birth parent. I’m in a major city, firm is a boutique that has been around a very long time. What would you suggest? Any studies or research you’ve seen recently on trends in parental leave policies also helpful. I’d like to have some sort of data to back up what I recommend. TIA!
There’s so much of a race to marry and settle down for male and female desis, so for those of you who got divorced with or without a child what is your life about now? This culture is so unforgiving so much of the time, that without both these things in place they’re not about inclusion much either. Do you still feel a sense of urgency to race to remarry?

How many of you are the only woman at your firm/practice group? I’m at a large firm, but part of a smaller practice group (<10 associates). We have female partners, but I’m the only female associate in our group. I’ve become friends with one of the other associates. Someone recently joked that I’m his “work wife.” This really bothered me. I don’t think of our relationship as romantic at all. This is mostly just a rant, but can we please retire this term?
Laid off a few weeks ago from AFS. Is anyone willing to refer me to a position at Deloitte GPS, Guidehouse, or Booz? Experience at AFS mainly consisted of Fed contract pricing, change management work, and digital transformation strategy.
Random non accounting related question. Recently moved into a house and looking for a rustic wood dining table. I want something that looks like a farm style, not cut up in a perfect rectangular or round shape. Something that looks like a part of a tree (it sounds funny but not sure how to describe). Where can I find something like this? Big furniture stores only have cookie cutter styles.
