As short as possible. I learned the hard way after getting a nail caught on a pair of leggings 😖


About 1mm from the nail bed to prep for 1cm extensions 🤪

Oval, 2mm

As short as I can without causing bleeding.

I don’t want to see any white. I don’t want to bleed when I cut them, but I do like to skirt that line.

Super short to the point the manicurist lectures me about it

Just had a baby and considering buying a townhome near Prescott Elementary. We have been renting near burley/prescott and really like the neighboorhood. First time home buyer and new to the country (<5 years). A few questions (1) why does CPS get such a bad rap? (2) is it better budgeting private school expenses and factoring them into home purchase? (3) will our son stick out because we are colored and he's tiny, and are private schools safer bet from a bullying/inclusiveness standpoint?

Lost 5lbs in one week by pushing my first meal of the day back to 11:30am. Probably can’t consider it to be intermittent since I don’t have a hard cut off time for when I stop eating at the end of the day but I’m really happy that this small adjustment is working!

Went too hard at the gym thinking I was still 24 years old (narrator: he is not). Pretty sure I have either a herniated disc or pinched nerve in upper back/neck. Fairly substantial pain that doesn’t seem to relent much. Anyone deal with this? Did you see doc, chiro, PT?

I hope this post fits here... my son (who is exclusively breastfed) is allergic to cows milk protein, so I'm having to suddenly go from a high dairy diet to a no dairy diet. Can any vegans out there recommend their favourite brands for dairy like food e.g. chocolate, cheese? And in general good vegan brands to be aware of? Note it's not lactose intolerance, so I cant eat lactose free food. Thanks!


Is it possible to be genetically predisposed to gain muscle? Ever since I was little, my doctors always commented on my BMI but never worried given how muscular I was. Since playing sports in high school and now regularly working out (cardio and weights) as an adult, I feel like I always maintain muscle mass, whether I do mostly cardio or not. This has resulted in bulking but now as I’ve tried to cut the past month, I’m not seeing weight loss. I’m counting all calories and feel stronger tho!


Is it just me or do avocados kind of taste and smell like bananas these days?


Just sharing a story.

I’m 49, and was still eating like my 22 yo son. Run a lot so was ok, but realized how much I was over eating.

I bought premade meals from a local meal service. 400-500 calories each. Ate those three meals a day for six weeks with some snacking and calories taken in conjunction with exercising. Didn’t give myself an option with other food in the house

Reset my idea of what a proper portion should be. I just eat less now without a willpower struggle.


Has anyone used the Lifesum app? If so, what are your thoughts?


I am debating going to therapy for some anxiety issues I have but I truly feel like I understand why I feel the way I do and I manage to cope with it well enough. I wish I could stop the anxiety completely but I am not sure a therapist could do that. I just fear I would be throwing a lot of money at some thing just to be told what I already know possibly. Has anybody been in a similar position and found therapy worth it?


Has anyone had trouble sleeping through the night? Any tips on how to improve? I’m dealing with a few very stressful events (work and personal life) and as a result am having a hard time sleeping a solid 8 hours.

Just letting anyone know what if they need mental support please see a therapist. I know there may be a stigma around it for certain cultures, but your mental health is what matters most. You are wonderful, and deserve the best for you.

edit: If anyone has stories on how they found great therapists, feel free to post here!

Starting a low dose of Prozac. My social life heavily revolves around drinking and to be honest I really love it. I have several weddings and bachelor parties coming up. How do you navigate not being able to drink on an SSRI?


Strange, but this new therapist asked me to send him zoom invite for our first session. Is that how it’s done normally? I told him my company doesn’t allow me to share my work zoom outside. Then he said that he’s kinda new to zoom that’s why he’s asking. He quickly sent me a zoom invite though
