I DO feel bad. I truly feel guilty. Like "what do I do? this is awkward" but at the same time, i am like, you were home watching tv all day while i took him out then want the 5 minutes of time with him to lay down with you and cuddle while you watch tv to "bond" and are confused when he doesn't want to! Its just awkward. I have moments, when she isn't moody or throwing shit or cursing at her child" that i like her as a funny person socially, but then I see how she treats people including me and I realize it is likely a show.

              week, If you don't want my opinion, don't ask your 5 or 6yo "what the fuck is wrong with you" when he does something that 5 and 6yo do to get attention when you spend all your free time ignoring him. You don't understand why he is drawing on the couch? Well, maybe because you told me during the weekend you let the two kids basically run around the house while you ignore them both. A little self evaluation is needed.

  20. Toddler I am very overweight (5'6" and 186lbs.). I've lost 6lbs over the past month just by being more careful not to eat between meals--my meal choices are always healthy, but I don't...(more) 9 hr 13 min ago (15 replies)
    listen to my body when I am anxious and overeat. I haven't always been this way, just since having DC 2 years ago. Anyway--I am feeling encouraged by this weight loss and am wondering, if I embark on a 1400 cal/day diet and begin working out 3x/week (even just walking), at what rate do you think I could lose the weight? I'm going to do this anyway, I'm just curious. I've got an event at the end of the summer. Just need a little hope.
