      Idk…I actually wish I were bigger, but so far-at 30-I still fit in to some of the pants I wore in 7th grade. Not a snacker and I stick to eating 3 meals a day. I prefer heavy lunches but it’s not really a thing in the U.S. I wasn’t really raised on grocery store candy or deep fried food. So no trouble ignoring all that noise. Rarely—and I do mean rarely—do I do the whole “late night and a fresh baked brownie and ice cream binge/ alcohol mop up with pizza.” It’s just…painful. It’s almost as bad as chugging a half a handle of vodka. Beer: Love it. It’s a weakness. I can’t deny that it paunches the belly and sides. So I *try* to keep it at a 2 to 3 beer max on weekend evenings only. Exercise (deliberate 30 to 1 hr routine with weights and cardio): 3 days a week Physical activity (walking instead of stairs, to a metro stop furthest away, dancing, hiking, walking the dog, wtvr): constantly. I can’t stress how much movement + deliberate work out routines matter to your body’s well being; and ABSOLUTELY NO SODA OR JUICES FROM THE CRAPPY JUICE SHELF. So yeah…maybe I should stop moving around as much to get that booty, but I’m too itchy to stay put. But who knows…maybe this can all work for someone who wants to stay at the 120-128 range at 5”7? Let me know…I have no idea how I managed to wear these model UN pants from back in the day out to the actual UN…

      When I paid tuition, a gym and wellness fee was automatically deducted, so it was one of those “free” things I could do (apparently a lot of Uni’s do that so check!). Rolled into those fees were kick boxing and yoga classes. Usually, there were also free dance classes offered on campus. I also roller bladed, skateboarded and went swimming at the beach near campus whenever I could (Miami!). Exercise or social activities that combined a lot of movement helped me stay balanced through a serious medical crisis and post-crisis depression. Had I not forced myself to go to yoga 3 times a week, to roller blade twice a week and use it as a form of meditation, I could’ve easily just done class-dorm-class-dorm-sleep and become worse off for it. It’s hard, there were moments I wanted to give up, but sometimes getting off campus to run/hike/bike/swim/ do whatever to get your heart racing for an hour and a half at the very minimum makes a difference to how you take on an assignment, internship, campus job, etc. especially in the face of whatever is going on in your personal life. In lieu of pre-paid gym fees: a pair of free weights ($20 total) and fitness blender’s YouTube video series.

      Here’s a RADICAL IDEA: Let the kids eat whatever the fark they want. HOWEVER, hide their Wii, playstation and kill the internet for about 3 hours a day and boot them outside. Make them run around, hike, bike around the neighborhood. Let them scrape their knees, bump their heads and chip their teeth. I guarantee you increased physical activities will have higher returns than limiting calories while still living a sedentary lifestyle. As a girl, none of my friends at age 12 were fat even though we ate like horses. Why? Because we MOVED.

      Yeah, so how bout them brown people picking your food: “In the case of quinoa, there’s a ghastly irony when the Andean peasant’s staple grain becomes too expensive at home because it has acquired hero product status among affluent foreigners preoccupied with personal health, animal welfare and reducing their carbon “foodprint”. Viewed through a lens of food security, our current enthusiasm for quinoa looks increasingly misplaced.”
      http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jan/16/vegans-stomach-unpalatable-truth-quinoa Being veggie or vegan comes at a high price to the humans picking your food. But, I guess they matter less since they’re poor and in the “global south”?

      >So this article implies that taylor swift understands what feminism is and should champion it.
      >it implies taylor swift shouldn’t write about the bullshiat drama that 12-year old girls love to indulge and choose something less profitable like the queer deconstruction of heteronormative identity (omg, those lyrics sound boring).
      >Misses the fact that girls and women who criticize her probably feel oh so squicky in their panties because they’ve probably been just as catty and bitchy with other women for offenses less grievous that the pilfering of a boyfriend (or gf). Taylor Swift probably just serves as the amplifier to drama and the solemn fact that WE NEVER GRow out of it.
      >Implies that women (people) who take offense to Swift don’t know where the volume/mute/off button on the TV or radio is.
      >that the women who post this don’t slut-shame. They “you-don’t-fit-into my-neat-littlefeminist box-shame.”
      >Did I mention that there’s an assumption that you can watch or listen to something else? Maybe perforate your kids eardrums if you’re so concerned?
      This article is stupid. You’re stupid for picking this battle. And I’m stupid for typing this response.
