“I have issues finding bras because of my size as well. Took me a little getting used to since I hadn't had the proper sized bra in years, but I'm in love with my Panache sports bra. If you can't find it anywhere near you, figleaves.com has become my goto online lingerie store.”

“You do realize the protest of the LGBT community is also freedom of speach don't you?”

“I do realize that, it is still ridiculous.. Just like the anti war protestors that protest at military funerals, etc. very stupid acts, yet legal..”

“Of course we do. We didn't start this whole thing, though. It started with the 1st amendment speech of Mr. Cathy. From there, it spiraled. G Mail is simply just pointing out that what's good for goose is not good for the gander when it comes to Christians supporting their freedom of speech.”

“Planning to boycott a company because of what he said and because his views are different than yours is indeed infringing on his freedoms. No one said you couldn't protest. We are just saying it's wrong to protest someones speech or opinion. That's our opinion, which I know, you want to protest already. Not saying you can't protest. You should just examine the reason why you are. Someone doesn't agree with your opinion. Apparently many Americans don't. Maybe you should protest Muslims, they kill gays.”

“That is only an excuse not to lift. Everybody starts somewhere. I've seen tiny girls start at not being able to lift a 45 lb bar, and can now deadlift more than their bodyweight. But it isn't for everybody I will agree with that. I myself love lifting and found it gave me a much needed confidence boost.”

Lisa Tomlin on Jul 29, 2012 at 13:44:14

“rsp99, not everyone likes lifting weights. Just because someone does not lift weights does not mean they are not an athlete. It just means they don't like to lift weights. Two different things here. My family is athletic and they don't lift weights . They play soccer and baseball and basketball. They run and job also. Very athletic but not into weights. You can be athletic without lifting weights.”

“Water has no flavor. This list was for people who want to try an alternative to sugary drinks, not people who just want to drink water.”

gmcinahuff on Jun 11, 2012 at 11:55:56

“I love water, however, I do get bored with it after awhile and look forward to drinking something with some flavor.

I think our society has become so flavor-addictive that it has become inconceivable for people to revert back to water. For many it's like telling them to walk to work or to get up and change the channel on the televison. Water, has become for many, a thing of the past.”

“A ban on supersized sodas isn't going to do anything to make people healthy, especially when a lot of places offer free refills on their sodas.

While I can't stand the chemical taste of soda and prefer water to quench my thirst, I work with a lot of people who won't drink much water because "it makes me go to the bathroom all the time." Until this kind of attitude is changed, people are going to continue with their unhealthy ways.”

“It's fan fiction based off Twilight series, that's probably why you cant get through it. LOL I have read excellent bondage erotica and have no interest in this drivel.

“The workshop sounds like a way for someone to make money off another person's success. I hope the people running the workshops are experts that know what they are doing since things can go wrong. The three rules that most people in the d/s community will give about about any role playing scene is safe, sane, and consensual. This can't be emphasized enough.”

“While you make a valid point as to the causes, these things can be overcome or worked through. It took me ten years and therapy to admit to being raped when I was in college. During which time I ended up putting on a lot of weight because I thought I'd be noticed less if I was overweight. One day I realized that I can't change some bad experiences I had with men, but I could control the future and I lost weight. Exercising and lifting weights became my way to cope with everything. One day I overdid my lifting and injured my back and had surgery and I still have issues but that doesn't stop me from trying to exercise on my good days. I am also on an anti-depressant that I need to keep myself sane.

My point is that some of what you listed are nothing more than a bunch of excuses. I also know that what I've accomplished some people wouldn't dream of doing, but if you dig deep enough in yourself you find the strength you need to accomplish it.

Somebody once said to me you can't always control what happens to you, but you can control how you react to it.”

“My partner is a medical director of an HMO, so I'm constantly hearing about how he struggles to make costs lower as well as various other issues he's run into. One of the things he's told me multiple times has to do with childhood obesity and parent's just don't want to hear that their child is overweight and gets angry at the doctor for even suggesting such a thing. So if the parent doesn't want to hear it, nothing is going to be done to change the health of the child. In my observations a lot of people go to the doctor expecting a magical cure for whatever ails them whether it be surgery or drugs. To me it seems like people don't want to take responsibility for their own actions, especially when it comes to their health.”

“If you don't want to count calories than don't. I never did and lost over 40 pounds (gained some back but that was a separate issue related to an injury). All I did was start exercising and became aware of what I was eating as well as how much I was eating. I have a huge sweet tooth and find myself craving sugar less and less often. If I want something sweet, I will have a little dark chocolate. Huge part of weight loss is moderation. If losing weight is something you really want, you will make the changes needed to succeed at it and not make excuses for why you won't/can't do it.”

“Damn right, you will. I'm still proud of you for not giving up like so many others would.

When you're down: it's all right to cry. I do when I'm hurting so badly that all I can do is stay in bed for days. It's o.k. to feel sorry for yourself every once and a while. Just don't make it a habit. Self-pity is a never-ending cycle of defeat.

“I agree with the no magic pill. When I lost weight people were asking me what I did to lose it and then were all disappointed when I said I watched what I ate and exercised. It's like they thought I had discovered some magical pill. Unfortunately I had regained some of that weight due to a ruptured disc that required surgery and an inability to exercise for over a year, but now I am back in the gym and positive I can do it all again.”

“People can be any size they want, they just need to deal with the consequence of being said size. I'm tired of hearing my unhealthy coworkers whine about how their knee hurts or some other ailment they have that is linked to them being obese. Their doctors have told them they need to lose weight and they still continue eating overly processed junk. It's really hard to be sympathetic and nonjudgemental to people who aren't even trying to make changes.”

“You ask why so many women are reading about sexual submission in an age of feminine liberation, the question to that is simple. The two terms are not mutually exclussive. It's possible for a woman to be both a submissive and a feminist. I consider myself to be both. I grew up believing, and still do, that women can do anything that a man can, they also have the ability to choose to do these things. I choose to be submissive to my partner, and I enjoy it. I can also choose to leave this person if I no longer have his respect or feel as if I have lost my trust in him. Submission and feminism is about choice, a concept a lot of people seem to miss or not understand.”

violettefemme on Jun 5, 2012 at 14:47:28

“So well put, thank you.
When I first understood my submissive nature, I felt so alone...I felt like, as a grown woman, I had permission...maybe even a directive...to be anything BUT submissive, and it really messed with me for a long time. I'm an active feminist, and reconciling these two parts of myself has been crucial for me to be content with who I am.”
