I’ve lost about 20 lbs since the pandemic started in March because I’ve gotten good about working out 5-6 times a week. However, more recently, I’ve noticed my weight loss has plateaued. I think part of it def is my diet. But also I’m switching up my workout routine for a weeks to “trick” my body again. Any other advice?

My parents and my fiancé are at odds to the number of people we should be inviting. I personally am fine with a large wedding but my fiancé is pretty angry. My parents and him are paying the most with me giving a smaller share (what I can afford). What do I do? They’re both equal parties $$ wise but obviously he’s the groom. I’ve gotten into screaming matches with my parents over this.
Technically we have some space but my fiancé wants to keep it small while my parents know there is space.

Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode.

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.

Recently some people asked if there was a way for people in the US to help with the situation in India. This is a trusted source you can donate to.
The general feeling in the main bowl is that India brought this upon herself. Even if you share that belief, please remember that irrespective of the reason, there are real people dying on the streets from the lack of resources and straight up hunger. Please help if you are able to.
