Caroline Berg Eriksen, Fitness Blogger, Causes Stir With Selfie 4 Days After Giving Birth

Caroline Berg Eriksen, Fitness Blogger, Causes Stir With Selfie 4 Days After Giving Birth

“She obviously had enough essential fat since she conceived and carried to term. I was talking about fat stores. Look at the picture of her bare belly at 29 days before birth. Her hip bones were still jutting out and that taut belly was tiny for late third trimester.”

“According to the Mayo Clinic:

Let's say your baby weighs in at 7 or 8 pounds (about 3 to 3.6 kilograms). That accounts for some of your pregnancy weight gain. What about the rest? Here's a sample breakdown:
Baby: 7 to 8 pounds (about 3 to 3.6 kilograms)
Larger breasts: 2 pounds (about 1 kilogram)
Larger uterus: 2 pounds (about 1 kilogram)
Placenta: 1 1/2 pounds (about 0.7 kilogram)
Amniotic fluid: 2 pounds (about 1 kilogram)
Increased blood volume: 3 to 4 pounds (about 1.4 to 1.8 kilograms)
Increased fluid volume: 3 to 4 pounds (about 1.4 to 1.8 kilograms)
Fat stores: 6 to 8 pounds (about 2.7 to 3.6 kilograms)

Judging by her 39 week photo alone she had zero fat stores and absolutely no fluid buildup which is somewhat amazing for 1 week from full term. She doesn't give her baby's birth weight but it couldn't have been much considering her tiny bump in the photo.”

“She delivered an 8 lb baby and gained 22 lbs.”

“"she had zero fat stores"

“Gunning for him? Surely you jest. He got a pass on a speeding violation right after the trial. Thankfully he did get a ticket the second time he was stopped going 60 in a 45 mph zone. Then he gets a pass after assaulting his wife and father-in-law because he smashed the ipad that contained the video evidence. I would say that it's about time the cops stopped giving this unstable man a pass.”

“I stated no such thing, only that it has no relevance to this tragedy. Pedophilia is a problem that runs through all walks of life and levels of social standing. No community, institution or family is immune. PSU did not originate the problem nor were they the first to mishandle its aftermath. There is no valid reason to demonize an entire organization and its surrounding community for the failings of a few individuals.”

“Strange how The Second Mile, Sandusky's own private hunting grounds for an endless stream of new victims, has escaped unscathed by any lawsuit. They were allowed to quietly close up shop and ship all remaining assets to Texas. As far as I've heard not one plaintiff tried to get any money from them and no criminal charges were ever filed. Without Second Mile there would've been no victims for Sandusky to exploit. PSU, in its haste to put this behind them, has paid through the nose, even settling with victims who never set foot on a PSU campus. Of course they have the deepest pockets so I can totally understand why all the lawyers targeted them. Still, Sandusky sits in prison while his wife collects his fat pension and not a single victim has sued the actual convicted perpetrator for damages.”

“What do you mean "Paterno has been named"? He reported the alleged abuse to his superiors thus fulfilling his legal obligation. He was fired immediately after the grand jury report was made public and stripped of his legacy while those "superiors" are still awaiting a trial that has yet to be scheduled. Those superiors have so far paid no price for their shortcomings. Instead, they have maintained all their PSU paid perks and benefits which include payment of all forthcoming legal costs when and if they ever go to trial. Paterno, who was never included in the indictment nor charged with a crime, has been a convenient scapegoat.”

“Taken on its own, a change of clothes wouldn't be unusual, especially since he had soccer practice right after class which he obviously skipped. On the other hand, it was reported that he was wearing white gloves in the surveillance video. The only difference any of this makes, since he was all but filmed committing the crime, is establishing premeditation. Regardless, he appears to be one sick individual.”

“It was reported that surveillance tape caught him dragging a recycling bin out of the school. Apparently no one else was around and the school does back into a wooded area. I do wonder if it's common for a teacher to stay after school alone with a student, especially of the opposite sex. I mean just to protect themselves from any accusations of impropriety, not to mention their own personal safety. Heck, I remember one particular male teacher I had way back in the late sixties, who, apropos of nothing, once told our class that he had to be mindful of his behavior around female students. We all thought he was pretty creepy to begin with and that statement sealed the deal.

I agree with your statement regarding kids who are damaged beyond repair. For this kid to behave the way he did afterward he has to be totally detached and devoid of emotion.”

“I saw a report in which they said he changed his clothes before the movie which explains the lack of blood. So far no one, other than one uncle, in his family has said a word. Apparently no one was home when he changed his clothes and it was his soccer team who reported him missing after he skipped practice, not a family member. His immediate family has been silent as well as MIA. Curious.”
