Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

Hey, Woman Thread. I'm sorry for probably interrupting the current conversation, especially since I haven't been on the fora in months, but I have a good doctor story that is relevant to the thread and my first thought was that I should share it with you. As people who have me added on facebook know...

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

Even living with someone (fiance) I don't remember to eat except for cereal in the mornings. I'd looove some good ways to remember to make/eat lunch/dinner. This. So much this. I'm fed up of "Hey, it's 11pm... Did I have dinner yet?" Quote from my guy - it made me feel a better about my b...

I just moved into a new flat two weeks ago and I refuse to buy scales to put in the bathroom because now that I'm living on my own I know that it's already going to be pretty hard for me to remember to eat right all the time without needing encouragement from the part of my brain that always feels l...
