I'm a grad student trying to get a handle on my weight before I start job hunting. I want to look as qualified for jobs as I feel, and I don't want to be self conscious at interviews. At least no more self conscious than people normally feel at interviews.

I'm a runner, I love dance aerobics, and I ride a vespa style scooter or my bike to work every day.

I'm on a huge casserole kick because I need lots of leftovers for my partner, who's so busy with work right now that he forgets to eat. I know it's awful, but that makes me a little jealous.

Portion Control Idea
I want a set of dishes my family can use every day for cereal/pasta/take out/ etc that has clearly marked labels for 1/2 cup, 1 cup, 2 cup, etc. so that we can make portion control a natural part of our life without having to take extra steps/dirty extra utensils, or guesstimate what a cup is. I couldn't find anything in a price range I found reasonable, (I really wanted a 'set' because having one or two bowls like this means they'd almost always be dirty in my sink because I never do dishes) so I submitted the idea for cost effective ones to quirky.

If enough people vote for them, they might make them, so if this seems like a useful product, would you mind voting? =D

Thanks so much! I'd really like to know what you guys think!

Hey guys,

I'm getting close to my goal weight, and I am starting to think about ways to celebrate the weekend I get there with my friends. I don't want to do anything food related, though. Does anyone have ideas?

For the Ladies: Sports Bras?
Target has surprisingly good sportsbras. Look for ones with a seam going across the cup.

I lost so much weight... And I gained it back. But I also gained a PhD, a new job and a lot of additional stress. I just need to get back to it.
