2023.05.31 05:15 Interesting_Lie_5631 Dreading Thursday

Thursday will be the first day I will be without my child, he’s 18 months old and I have been crying about it since my decision to leave my ex-partner. I haven’t spent a night without my son since I carried him in my belly and I’m really going through it. Any advice on how to cope? My ex-partner has been very emotional too, of course, and I really do feel bad for him. We are working through relationship problems or at least have been trying to and we both know that only staying together for the sake of our baby is not the right decision. I don’t know, thought someone on this subreddit could give me some advice or anything really. Thanks in advance.

New hobby.. Turns out I can knit (a bit) also drove today with a passenger for first time in AGES!
New distraction from thinking - knitting. Can't do it for long, so prefer fat wool and fat needles.. I love baggy bright hats 💖♥️🧡💛💚💙 In other news, I drove to my hospital appointment today! So I'm now feeling pretty ok with car - it takes me ages to get used to a different one.. NGL I'll be much happier when we finally have a WAV again, and I'm able to use my chair more often to save energy to become more independent again. Also now know I'll be able to do my couple of hours a week studying - as I can drive still. Failing that, the OH wIll have to take me, 🙊like she usually does.. An adapted wav will be almost all my Christmases at once! I just hope it's here by September ♥️🙏♥️xxx I hope you are all doing well, and had mini achievements of your own today 😘 💖xxxx

The Freezer ❄️ Mini Bong
Under $200 ($190 approx) for the Mini Bong + Flower Kit (ash catcher and bowl). Just kept going on the site and leaving without purchasing and they kept sending 15% and 20% off coupons.
Impressed how the chamber stays cold for the entire smoke session (mine are about 20/30 mins lol) Obviously it doesn't stay frozen cold like the first couple of minutes, but this is FAR better than loading ice into the bong and then it melting and just overfilling the water inside lol. The feel and craft on these are fantastic. Sturdy/thick glass.
Smoked 2 fat bowls and I'm stuck like chuck lol. (Gastropop #4 (batch 20230327-GSP-H25) and Super Pure Runtz (batch 20230123-SPR-H17) The Flowery).

2023.05.31 05:07 xspacecl0udx Makeup for my features; help!

So I just started really getting into makeup and I really want to put on makeup that suits my features!
Since I do not feel comfortable adding an image of myself, I’ll try my best to describe my face.
Starting off with my skin tone: I’m overall on the paler side with pink undertones. However, I am also a bit olive and I think I’m neutral toned overall. I’m Middle Eastern so I will never give up my gold jewelry.
Face shape: Pretty oval/slightly heart shaped. I’m overweight and currently losing weight so my face is roundenot defined (I’m also 18, so probably some baby fat). I have a longer chin/lower half. You can see some definition in my side profile with my cheekbones, but I currently do not have a jawline, so…
Hair: I feel like hair does play a semi-big role in some makeup looks! I have fairly wavy/sometimes curly (if it’s behaving) deep brown hair that I’ve been growing out for the past 2 years so it has no definite style (only leftover layers from a short mullet I had; now it’s halfway down my back). It’s pretty thick in general.
Eyes and brows: Dark brown/black, almond shaped so kind of sharp corners, big pupils, not much space in the crease (I don’t have hooded eyes, it’s just that my eyes are very… open?). One eye’s larger than the other, of course. 😐 I think I may have wide-set eyes, but not by much. Brows are thick and dark with arches, they are close together but I do thread my unibrow lol
Nose: Has an hourglass figure going down ☠️ (wide at top, slims down, then widens) and widens at the bottom with no definition at the tip. Hooked nose from the side (pretty prominent). Tip of nose is crooked. My nose is honestly extremely hard to describe because it has no definition from the front but very visible from the side.
Lips: Longer than they are wide. Not super thin but definitely not plump. Semi-defined Cupid’s bow (edges of the bow are a bit soft), bottom and top lip look about the same height when looking straight at my face (if someone tall were to look at me, my top lip would be nonexistent).
My features are overall not that defined and bland. My eyes are definitely my best feature, but they are still… meh. I think most of it comes from me comparing myself to those gorgeous Middle Eastern girls with such striking features. Oh well. Anyway, which makeup look would suit this description best?
To anyone who knows about this: I’m apparently a deep winter!

2023.05.31 05:02 kartiman Jardiance For Weight Loss Reviews, Results

Jardiance (empagliflozin) is a medication primarily prescribed for managing type 2 diabetes. However, it has gained attention for its potential benefits in weight loss. In this article, we will explore Jardiance for weight loss, provide reviews from users, and discuss the results associated with this medication. Read on to discover more about Jardiance and its potential impact on weight management.
PhenQ is a dietary supplement that is marketed to aid in weight loss.
Understanding Jardiance for Weight Loss:
Jardiance belongs to a class of medications known as SGLT2 inhibitors. It works by reducing the reabsorption of glucose in the kidneys, leading to increased glucose excretion through urine. This mechanism not only helps lower blood sugar levels in individuals with diabetes but also promotes weight loss by eliminating excess glucose calories from the body.
Reviews of Jardiance for Weight Loss:
Many users have reported positive experiences with Jardiance for weight loss. Here are some real user reviews highlighting their results:
  1. Mark - Mark struggled with weight loss despite various efforts. After being prescribed Jardiance, he noticed a gradual decrease in weight over several months. He reported feeling less bloated and experienced a reduction in appetite, which contributed to his weight loss success.
  2. Lisa - Lisa had difficulty shedding excess weight due to her diabetes. With the introduction of Jardiance, she experienced improved glycemic control along with steady weight loss. She mentioned feeling more energetic and motivated to engage in physical activity.
  3. Michael - Michael's weight loss journey was accompanied by his diabetes management. Jardiance played a significant role in his weight loss, as it helped him break through a weight loss plateau. He emphasized the importance of combining Jardiance with a balanced diet and regular exercise for optimal results.
Results of Jardiance for Weight Loss:
Jardiance has shown promising results in clinical studies regarding weight loss. Some key findings include:
  1. Significant Reduction in Body Weight: Clinical trials have demonstrated that individuals using Jardiance experienced notable weight loss compared to those on a placebo. The weight loss observed may vary depending on factors such as starting weight, duration of use, adherence to a healthy lifestyle, and individual metabolism.
  2. Reduction in Waist Circumference: In addition to overall weight loss, Jardiance has been associated with a decrease in waist circumference. This is particularly important, as excess abdominal fat is linked to a higher risk of various health conditions.
  3. Improved Body Composition: Users have reported improvements in body composition, including a reduction in body fat percentage and an increase in lean muscle mass. These changes contribute to a more favorable body composition and overall better health.
PhenQ is a dietary supplement that is marketed to aid in weight loss.
Jardiance, primarily prescribed for type 2 diabetes management, has shown promising results in terms of weight loss. Real user reviews and clinical studies support its efficacy in promoting weight reduction and improving body composition. It is important to note that Jardiance should only be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional and as part of a comprehensive approach to weight management, including a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Individual experiences may vary, and it is advisable to consult with a healthcare provider to determine if Jardiance is suitable for your specific needs and to monitor any potential side effects or interactions. Always follow the prescribed dosage and adhere to lifestyle modifications recommended by your healthcare professional for optimal results.

2023.05.31 05:02 MaybieKaybie I feel like the scene in S6 ep14 where Khloe and Lamar confront Rob about his binge eating is actually Rob reaching out for help with his drug problem and them making light of it because THEY introduced him to it

The scene opens with Khloe and Lamar laying in bed waiting for Rob to open the pantry, just before this they’d installed an alarm on the pantry that would go off if he opened it to get food in the middle of the night.
They’re also discussing a pistachio commercial and Lamar doesn’t want to wear a green shirt so Khloe offers to be the one who wears green. She also reassures him he won’t have to talk.
[loud alarm goes off]
Lamar: Got his ass
Khloe: The alarm went off, see?
Lamar: Got his ass
Khloe: See?
Lamar: We got his ass! [yelling down the stairs] You fucking fat boy!!! We caught you!
Khloe: [in an aside] I totally knew this time was going to come, caught you red handed, baby!
Khloe: [running to the pantry] AHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!!
Lamar: What are you doing? (To Rob)
Camera cuts to Rob sitting on the floor in their pantry with an unopened full sized bag of potato chips in his lap. They disconnect the alarm.
Khloe: You’ve been served!
Lamar: Are you embarrassed?
Rob: [in an aside] Khloe and Lamar think it’s funny to catch me trying to get junk food or whatever, I mean I don’t personally think it’s funny.
Lamar: What are you doing?
Khloe: This is when food sticks on you the most, cuz you’re just going to eat and go to sleep. Just admit that you have a binging problem and you, like, can’t control yourself.
Rob: [to Lamar] You are…the cause of this. [in an aside] I was super healthy when I moved in here. If it wasn’t for all the junk food and everything in this house I would still be doing what I used to be doing and working out. But you know, it’s their fault, essentially.
Rob: [to Khloe and Lamar] If I lived at Kourt’s house I guarantee you I would be-
Khloe: [interrupting] Robert, you’re addicted to food.
Lamar: It’s ok, man, it’s ok (he pats Rob on the back)
Khloe: Brotherly love (very cutesy baby sing song voice)
The scene ends with Rob and Lamar staring emotionally into each others eyes and Khloe staring at them with a creepy, detached smile on her face.
In a later scene he moves in with Kourtney and Scott and says in an aside: Kourtney is really positive about me eating healthy, that’s like her lifestyle, that’s how I want my lifestyle to be, I need to be, like, around people that are on the same boat as me.
Later in the episode he and Scott go through a drive through and get tacos because “it’s been , like, a week of eating healthy and I need my fix.”
When Scott offers him a taco Rob says “we kinda hafta eat them in the car, we can’t eat eat them in the house.”
Then Scott says here dude, I’ll hold the wheel, you eat.
It’s all very Rob and Scott on vacation getting sloppy but they’re “eating tacos” they’re all conspiratorial and like ohohoho just a secret fun time between us guys.
The entire thing is obviously stupid and I’ve been smoking weed but I feel like it’s all a kind of accurate depiction of what actually went on at this time. Rob got introduced to drugs by Lamar and Khloe.
I believe that at this time Khloe thought it was all recreational, Lamar was hiding how bad his problem was and that Rob was developing a severe problem, not hiding it at all and couldn’t help himself out of the situation because he’s never been capable of doing anything for himself.
Khloe was making light and joking but is basically like yeah Lamar can do these drugs and can hang and be fine but you obviously can’t handle that like a man and it’s embarrassing.
He went to Kourtney’s after this looking for a place to get clean and instead found an all too willing accomplice in Scott. Seriously, all Scott needs is a whisper of a suggestion and he’s up for a good old fashioned bender.
Then Rob goes back to Khloe’s at the end of the episode and she’s like I told you so, it’s not our fault because you’re going to “eat tacos” no matter where you are and it’s you who has a problem.

2023.05.31 04:52 AidanL17 [Giveaway] Upgrade to Premium Gift + My old favorite hat

I haven't played much TF2 in the last few years, as I've moved away from FPS games more in favor of singleplayer stuff that I can easily play on Switch/Steam Deck while I sit on the couch with a show on. Lot of roguelikes and deckbuilders, basically. It seems a waste to me that a few virtual items are doing no one any good sitting in my inventory gathering digital dust, and some of them really did give me great enjoyment. I really enjoyed the silly shit in TF2 like becoming the bomb with the old pre-nerf Ullapool Caber and flanking with the Eureka Effect and Widowmaker (especially on pl_upward). Fat Spy. Fat Scout. I'm putting this in the middle of the post because I want to know people have read it, but tell me your three favorite classes, and a favorite TF2 memory and why you love the game (or anything else fun you want to add). Being really shit at rocket jumping despite my best efforts. (I think I hit two Market Gardener crits in all of my time trying, and one of them was on an AFK player, which took my several attempts to get right.) Running around Demoknighting with Conscientious Objectors plastered with Nic Cage and Gaben. These are some of my fondest TF2 memories, so I want to hear some of yours. It's important to me that this hat goes to a good home, it has sentimental value. I was F2P once, and this will thus help someone who currently is. Sorry for the wall of text. Anyway, my birthday is this Sunday, so I'll pick the winner that evening after I get home from work.

2023.05.31 04:51 RelationshipWhiplash I have a controversial opinion on those who say they lift weights.

I have seen A LOT of comments and posts about how people are eating clean and lifting weights and either aren’t losing and or are gaining. Lifting is the reason. Do cardio.
I know there seems to be this stigma against cardio. People saying you can get the same results with just lifting. Let me share my experience and the experiences I have seen from others.
Prior to Covid I was pretty active in crossfit. Going in I had weighed around 190lbs. I wanted to lose weight. I wasn’t losing weight. I had actually gained 5lbs the first 6 months I was there. I was in the gym 5 days a week. I was eating clean and I wasn’t losing. Fast forward to 2 years later. I was down to 170. That’s an average of 2lbs a month. If that. Some months I lost nothing. Some months I lost a few more.
But my body was fully recomped. I looked leaner than even what my weight was at the time. I could pass for 10-20lbs less because I was lean and muscular. I remember what I looked at 170 before crossfit and at 170 before looked 20lbs heavier.
I’m not saying lifting doesn’t help. What I’m saying is lifting is a lifelong commitment with much slower results than cardio. It’s a lot harder to gain muscle than it is to lose fat. Cardio can help lose fat. All I do now is bike. I bike for 30 minutes a day in front of the TV. That’s it.
I know that for some it’s all about genetics. And for those who just aren’t losing weight because of genetics and other health issues I’m not coming for y’all. But for those who have no problem losing and are lifting as their workout try doing just cardio.
I plan to lift again once I get to a weight I want to be at. I won’t mind putting 2 years in doing a fully body recomp. But now my only focus is losing weight. I have time after the weight loss to reshape my body to how I want it to look.
And if you want to lift and stay on Sema then expect it to take longer for results and that’s Ok because the payoff will be worth it. But it won’t happen as fast as some of us. And again that’s Ok because while I might lose weight in 6 months it won’t look good. I’ll be flabby and still out of shape but to my my priority is weight loss and not looking good because my health depends on me losing weight. When my health is no longer in danger I’ll get back to toning and lifting.
Anyway, that’s my two cents. Also I’m aware some of y’all are lifting and losing and that’s great. I’m not saying it’s not possible. Again genetics play a part. I just see so many post of people who said they are lifting and not losing but have only been lifting a few months. Keep lifting for 2 years and I promise you no matter genetics no matter if you take Sema. You watch calories and you lift regularly you’ll look like a totally different person.

Suiswap is valued at $10 billion, with FDV of $200M. They copy pasted everything from aptos and didn't even change the name. Crypto valuations are braindead sometimes
Suiswap with $200M FDV and a valuation of $10 Billion seems to have been copying homework of other players in the game. The metadata for the SuiSwap site is a picture of AptosSwap. The devs literally could not be bothered to change the metadata for this low effort copy and paste.

This seems like a job done terribly wrong by the devs at SUI. Ideally they should've hired better devs but even then, what they did by copying another dexs website makes you question if they're even serious about what they're doing or just a quick cash grab. There are little things like these in a project that make you question their legitimacy.

SUI's $200M flagship dex copy pasted so hard from aptos that they didn't even remember to change the name in their website's preview from Aptoswap. But surely at a $10 Billion valuation, SUI isn't just more vaporware to give VCs a fat payday, right? …right?

Hey everyone. I’m new to the DIY stuff. I used to purchase Lipo Lab from a vendor in my state but they’ve stopped selling. Are there any reputable websites that I can look into? I’m not really comfortable with the way some of them ask for payment (maybe I’m overthinking it). Also, what’s the best fat dissolving treatment that you guys have tried? I’m looking to shed a few inches off of my waistline. Any advice would be appreciated thank you!

2023.05.31 04:44 jhaneyus5 Osterine results

Hey guys,
First post here, been taking osterine 15mg for 1 month now. I don’t want to discuss which company but rather the results I experienced. I’m a triathlete, 5’10 and 188 lbs. i noticed great success with osterine by keeping the dosage low, lost a ton of fat and my ability to do more sets is insane. For example today I did a 1.5 mile swim without fins in 30 minutes, 600 squats with my 35lb Kevlar vest and 1500 total reps of leg levers, toe touches and 4- count flutter kicks. Personally i attack core while a lot and I’m easily the most Spartan looking version I’ve been. My endurance is tough to measure since I do train and have been traing using progressive overload but I would say I definitely notice strength gains and recovery as well. I probably won’t try anything besides osterine just because I don’t think there is any need to. I did notice some effects, mild aggression uptick, lower libido, and lower hunger. I’m surprised I’m not eating more since I do swim and run everyday. Overall a great experience.

2023.05.31 04:44 lonesome_squid Not replying to text for six hours and they call and say they are worried

I’m a 30-year-old financially independent female. I live in a different state from my parents and we do not talk on a regular basis, just from time to time to check in and on holidays we exchange messages. I rarely call them because we never had that tradition in my family.
I am currently vacationing with my boyfriend and we are at the last leg visiting his family. I sent a photo of us to my folks, and my mom’s first response was, “How much weight did you gain?” My dad said i looked several months pregnant and I needed to watch my health. I didn’t appreciate it (first of all, I don’t approve of fat-shaming; second of all, I am 5”3, weigh 105 lb…) so I didn’t respond right away.
We were out and about for the rest of the day, so I forgot about the text. When my boyfriend’s fam and I were watching a show in the evening after dinner, my mom called me, and she immediately asked where I was and why I didn’t reply to her text. I explained to her (I left out the part I was offended because I didn’t want to open another can of worm) and I think it’s mainly because she minded that I was talking to her in the presence of my bf’s family, we left at that. My bf’s family (white) did not ask about the call, which I was thankful for because I didn’t want to have to explain why a grown ass woman like myself needed to reply to my mother in only what they perceive to timely manners. They have never met my parents and I am in fact worried that when it comes to it, how they will get along.
This one instance left me deeply unsettled because this isn’t the first time my parents does something like this. While no one was hurt, to me, they blew things out of proportion and crossed the line, yet again. I don’t know what to do because there is a cultural divide but I simply can’t say it like it is. They also lack emotional maturity, and they blindly believe that crossing the line is acceptable for parents because that’s how they express their “love”. It isn’t but I don’t know if this will ever be communicated between us; our relationship has been in a limbo and I don’t know what to do or if I should even bother to do anything about it.
I guess everyone comes to this SubReddit because we don’t have an answer…

2023.05.31 04:43 tempnotagoth Senior dog has chronic pancreatitis and six teeth - how can I help her gain weight?

She is 13 and about 5.5lbs. Is a papillon that's always been on the petite side. My dog is very boney and it's starting to worry me. She's currently on Prednisone and will be for the rest of her life. My dog's diet is Hills Science Low Fat gastrointestinal biome - the beef stew kind since she can eat the meat chunks in it. She hasn't been eating the chunks for a few months now and prefers the boiled chicken I throw in with the meat chunks and gravy. Sometimes she eats the meat, but ignores it mostly.
Her best buddy, our family dog that she grew up with, was put down three years ago and it really put her into a depression as well. Doesn't like going on walks anymore, not even little ones. Has bad anxiety.
Anyone have any advice or experience?

2023.05.31 04:43 OneManApocalypse Brisket getting stuck and dried out at ~190

I got a Traeger Ironwood 885 pellet smoker for my birthday this year. I've tried brisket on it twice now and both times it has come out mediocre - the first time it was almost inedible jerky and this second time it was edible but still pretty dry. I feel like I'm going crazy when I'm smoking it because a 3lb brisket flat is taking 10+ hours to smoke at 250f. Here is my process:
  1. Remove brisket from the fridge, apply dry rub, let rest at room temp while the smoker preheats
  2. Add a water pan to the smoker
  3. Smoke the brisket fat side down at 195f until the internal temp reaches ~160f, about 4 hours.
  4. Wrap brisket in butcher paper, insert internal thermometer, raise grill temperature to 250f
  5. Attempt to reach ~203f.
Part #5 never happened. It took 5 hours to get from 165f to 185f, which the internet tells me is longer than the entire cooking process should take. I used 4 different thermometers and got 3 different results between 165, 175, and 185 at the same time. I upped the heat to 300f and it wasn't cooking any faster. I know that the Stall is a big deal, but I figured I wouldn't deal with a massive stall on a 3lb cut, so I can't imagine that is it?
The two main culprits I can imagine are either A) the brisket I'm using is not the right cut or it's too small for the recipes I'm using, or B) the Traeger's internal heat differs wildly depending on where the meat is sitting, so it's not cooking nearly as fast as I would expect.

When I pulled the meat off, it was edible but pretty dry and chewy with a decent smoke ring. Does anyone have any ideas why this might be happening?

2023.05.31 04:42 Pippin_the_parrot Welp, I finally melted my brain 🫠🫠

I’m the lady who couldn’t figure out how to trip. Yesterday I lemon tek’d the last 18.17 grams of golden teacher I had after smoking an eight of weed in the hot tub. I slurped that nasty mess down at 1230. By 1330 some visuals. Time gets weird after that. I spent quite a few hours calling my mom a fat last cunt which was more fun than usual bc my voice was so cool. Things got ugly for awhile. My sweet husband tucked me back in bed and I kept telling my brain “I got your ass today bitch. I fucking tricked you! Haha! You thought you was some shot brain but I fucking melted your ass today.” My therapist laughed so hard she snorted. I’m making a new plant for a park forward. I don’t fix myself yesterday. I trauma dumped on my sweet husband but I think this can work.
