... 1%. Isn’t that just normal weight fluctuation?

This is not to make anyone feel bad but even tho many of us struggle with weight gain, lots of us have problem with maintaining a good BMI! Neither is good. Actually when I really weigh myself today, I have lost 3% of my weight. I'm petite size, usually <110pounds so any weight loss is bad for me. But I do hope I'm just losing muscles and gaining fat lol

Ladies, any suggestions for face masks for the coronavirus. Starting back with travel next week and wud like to use it in the airport. Appreciate it! 🙋🏽‍♀️

For us who are constantly comparing salaries, complaining abt WLB etc. this is very accurate. There are people outside including my own relatives who are working 6 days a week in factories for peanuts, no work from home during Covid, struggling to make ends meet with families etc. while we in our 20s or so earning decently and comfortably. Let us be thoda sa grateful and enjoy life with what we have 😇

My pledge for 2020, I'm not going to live in fear. Going to go back and teach my children. I realize that the chances of getting Covid 19 from younger people are slim (based on science).

I just got invited to a dinner meeting with 20 other consulting professionals from my new office. It’s going to be an indoor dinner and there’s nothing on the invite indicating whether this is optional or mandatory. Here’s the thing: I’m pregnant - fully vaccinated, but I’ve still been trying to be really careful about Covid - no indoor dining, always masking indoors. I don’t actually know anyone at the office yet and don’t want to come off as contrary… Any advice on how to handle?

How can NYC become interesting to me again? I think I’m just spending too much time at home due to WFH and dramatic behavior change due to COVID … it also doesn’t help that rent has been increased exorbitantly. I think I just need to get outside … or maybe head into the office? It’s hard to break the habit of rolling out of bed to WFH then signing off and getting sucked in to staying in. Rent will be increased to 4K soon and for what? Need some NYC inspo.

Just read an article about how the first doses of the vaccine will be doled out. Am I the only one who is really heartened by the global response to COVID-19? Sure, the US and other countries led by conservative despots bungled it, but, on the whole humanity came together, wore masks, hunkered down, made a vaccine in record time. These actions were largely motivated by fear but also compassion for vulnerable people. I mean, we did it y’all!

I took my new co worker under my wing to personally invest in her success. She’s another brilliant black woman. Also felt like her knowledge is valuable and we could learn from each. I was off work for 3 weeks due to Covid and when I came back she told me she had gotten into it with our co workers and had been put on a performance plan. She ready to resign. She is very emotive and I think people take it as aggression. I don’t want her to sabotage her career. What advice would you give her?

My friends were supposed to get together soon for a bachelorette party. One of the girls did not get vaccinated and now has Covid. She and the others are still going to continue with plans because it will have been right at around 3 weeks after she tested positive. I’m wondering if I should still go because my boyfriend is a cancer survivor, and his type never goes away so he’s higher risk. Bf and I are both vaccinated. Is 3 weeks enough time/are we good since vaccinated?
