SparkPeople No Topic Off Limits Team Messageboard All opinions welcome! Sometimes a little naughty, sometimes heated, and almost anything goes. If you can handle it then join and come play. (This team is NOT for the easily offended or thin skinned) SparkPeople No Topic Off Limits Team Messageboard 2020-2021 school year Both of my kids are starting school online this fall. <BR> <BR> How about your children/grandchildren, etc? Sun, 2 Aug 2020 12:18:13 EST Quarantine Not sure where you are all from. <BR> <BR> I'm in Ohio. So far our governor has shut down schools, bars, restaurants (drive thru and carry out still available), gyms, spas, rec centers, barber shops, beauty salons, and the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. <BR> My husband has just started working from home. I work in healthcare so I have to go, but I am extra cautious. <BR> <BR> How are you guys holding up? What closures and protocols are you following? Fri, 20 Mar 2020 17:03:10 EST Organic or non-organic produce Do you have a preference? Do you think it matters? Thu, 6 Feb 2020 23:34:44 EST Happy New Year Hope your first week is off to a great start. Personally I've been having trouble remembering what day it is. Sat, 4 Jan 2020 02:08:31 EST Air Fryers Do you own an air fryer? Do you think it really helps your diet? Sun, 25 Aug 2019 15:55:56 EST What is your diet like? What do you eat? How many meals a day? <BR> Do you have a cheat meal, or cheat day? Sat, 27 Apr 2019 10:45:26 EST Autism Awareness Day Today is Autism Awareness Day, it's also Autism Awareness Month. <BR> <BR> Do you have anyone in your life that is autistic? <BR> <BR> My 4 year old is autistic and nonverbal. Tue, 2 Apr 2019 20:59:35 EST Vehicles How did you decide which vehicle you bought/lease? <BR> <BR> Did you know what you wanted to drive, or did you get what you could afford? <BR> <BR> Right now I have a Dodge Journey because my Avenger was totaled in an accident, I wanted an SUV and that's what I could afford at the time. I also have a Dodge Charger because that's a car I always loved the look and wanted to own. <BR> <BR> I've been looking at other SUVs because I want an upgrade but it can be overwhelming. Sat, 2 Mar 2019 10:44:53 EST Snow Anyone else get hit by a snow storm over the weekend? We had over a foot of snow in Ohio. <BR> It hasn't snowed since Sunday (it's Wednesday now) and my city still hasn't plowed my street. Wed, 23 Jan 2019 09:20:21 EST Hey I'm new! <BR> Hello FIRST TIMER Mon, 7 Jan 2019 10:08:38 EST Christmas I am not ready for Christmas/Yule even though it is next week. I have no decorations up, I think my husband and I are doing the tree later. It's just a 4 foot fiber optic tree. We don't do ornaments because of our youngest son. I do have most of my gifts bought, just not wrapped. I am not going to do as many cookies this year. I'm just tired of all the stress that comes with holidays so I decided enough is enough. <BR> <BR> I am glad both of my boys will be on winter break soon so I don't ha... Sun, 16 Dec 2018 11:32:10 EST Fallhallow wthanksmas I think stores put up Christmas decorations wayyyyyy too early this year. The stores around me all decorated for fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas at the same time. It is making me dread Christmas already since it's too early, I don't want to be burned out before December even hits. I'm not typically a fan of Christmas anyways. Thu, 25 Oct 2018 17:37:53 EST Halloween What are your Halloween plans, or fall plans? <BR> Decorate pumpkins, go to a pumpkin patch, haunted houses, pass out candy for Trick-or-Treat? <BR> <BR> <BR> I love fall and Halloween. I'm still hoping to get the day off work so I can do Trick-or-Trick with my kids. My husband is off and he'll be able to take the kids. One of us usually takes them and the other passes out candy and we switch. <BR> I still dress up myself. Sat, 29 Sep 2018 11:13:44 EST Pumpkin Spice VS Apple flavor Which is your favorite fall flavor? <BR> <BR> I would pick apple over pumpkin spice anyday. Fri, 14 Sep 2018 16:37:20 EST Goals What are some of your goals for the new year? <BR> <BR> Not just diet or health related...anything! <BR> <BR> I want to get my house sided and bathroom remodeled. I still have a seafoam green sink and tub, it's hideous. Tue, 2 Jan 2018 11:41:51 EST Summer How is everyone's (or anyone out there) summer going so far? <BR> Sticking to exercise and healthy choices? <BR> <BR> I was doing great until we went to the beach for a week. I'm having trouble getting back into the swing of exercising like I was. I had been doing 3 miles a day plus some other little things. Now, I am still walking and moving, but not to the amount I was. Having my oldest son home from school has thrown me off my routine too. Mon, 19 Jun 2017 17:54:52 EST Facebook and politics I've had to delete a few people and unfollow several "friends" on facebook because of politics. I have had a few people delete me. I don't really post much about politics on there either. I really view people a lot differently now depending on their posts. I had two different women cut my hair and both have different views and now I can't bring myself to go see either one of them. Also, direct sales friends, I won't buy from them anymore and I don't care if they buy anything from me. People u... Thu, 2 Feb 2017 08:59:52 EST Hi i'm floyd and i need your help Hey every one I'm Floyd. I'm 34 and very active but just cant loose the weight. I play foot ball and do jui jitzu, and I have 4 kids that keep me very busy. I don't know where the issue is and im re joining after what feels like forever to find this out Sun, 1 Jan 2017 21:14:34 EST Essential Oils Does anyone else use essential oils for anything? I started using some a couple months ago and I just love them. I'd been wanting to try them for years but was skeptical. Mon, 12 Dec 2016 09:38:37 EST Presidental candidates and debates I am surprised no one has created a topic of Trump vs Clinton or about the debates. <BR> I personally don't have cable or any live streaming TV channels so I have not watched. I learned through clips on facebook, memes and friends' facebook statuses. I have researched their issues and what not, beyond facebook. I'm not completely ignorant. <BR> <BR> What are your thoughts? <BR> <BR> I personally hate Trump and could never vote for him. He is insane. I can't believe he has gotten this far a... Tue, 11 Oct 2016 08:57:10 EST I'm new here Hello! Im Shannon. I will be 44 later this month. I have been married for 16 years to a good man. I have 3 nearly adult children, only 1 lives with us now. I have been diagnosed with Bipolar Depression and I have a tough time in a group if I don't know many people. My husband was diagnosed with Diabetes some time ago. <BR> Our intimacy/sexual relations have been not so great for about 12 years or so. He's always said I am insatiable. Anyway.... we would always go 1 month then he would fi... Sun, 11 Sep 2016 01:49:25 EST Pokemon Go! Who has been playing this game? <BR> My almost 12 year old has been playing this lately and he talks about it all the time. He has suckered his grandma into driving him places to look for pokemon, haha. <BR> I was never into the game but I think it sounds like a good thing to get people out of the house. Of course, as long as you're careful and aware of your surroundings. Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:20:00 EST Jennifer Tilly I guess I'm a sucker for that presentation. It's not just the boobs, either. It's the boobs, the face, the voice, and the roles she plays and how she plays them. Just caught "30 beats" this morning, and while it wasn't the sexiest of all of her roles, it still got me thinking about her again. I think my favorite was that notorious sex scene with Gina Gershon in Bound. Holy moly. Sun, 17 Jul 2016 08:03:52 EST Can we talk about Orlando? First, I was so distraught yesterday when I heard about this massacre that I didn't have any will to watch my Pittsburgh Penguins play in the Stanley Cup (which I heard this morning that they're the champions) and that says something about how upset I was. <BR> <BR> This is a horrible tragedy. <BR> <BR> I'm not going to lie, the first few seconds I heard the news I thought for sure it was some extreme right-winged religious zealot taking matters into their own hands and ridding the earth of... Mon, 13 Jun 2016 11:10:16 EST Your current Netflix, Hulu, Amazon indulgence? Mine are: <BR> 11.22.62 on Hulu <BR> X-Files (original series) on Netflix Fri, 27 May 2016 09:21:40 EST The Transgender Conversation So here's my "opinion" about this topic: I identify as male, I have male genitals and am heterosexual. It doesn't bother me one bit if another person chooses to identify as a gender that does not match their physiology. I do believe that it's important not discriminate someone solely off of their gender or gender identity. <BR> <BR> That said, what can I do about it personally? I suppose I could"shame" the stupid (stupid is relevant, I know) but then I'd come off as being being a jerk I coul... Thu, 26 May 2016 13:35:18 EST Hi, I'm Rose So I'm Rose, at least that's what you can call me. I've been around SP for about a month, and decided I needed a group to talk to. Seeing this place, I'm glad I looked. Can't wait to chat with you all. <BR> Wed, 18 May 2016 12:12:15 EST Bang - Smack - Marry Ok quiet ones, here's the deal! <BR> <BR> Three names are posted. In your reply, you decided who you'd get intimate with (bang,) smack, or marry. (I decided "kill" was just too mean, though YMMV.) <BR> <BR> In the same reply, you post three new people! <BR> <BR> Here we go, starting with the last three standing on the republican slate: <BR> <BR> TRUMP - CRUZ - KASICH <BR> <BR> Go! Sat, 2 Apr 2016 18:46:12 EST Let's Talk About... Well hey there. I followed TAIJIMAN over and am interested in the team. <BR> <BR> At your party, I'm the one in the kitchen, engaged in a conversation about death, religion or politics. I'm a bit iconoclastic, but I really like engaging in discussions and hearing different points of view. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to some good conversation SPARKS. <BR> <BR> <em>91</em> Tue, 23 Feb 2016 18:45:30 EST Broken bones How many bones have you broken? <BR> <BR> Right now both of my ankles are broken and I'm in a wheelchair. I had surgery on my right and have 4 screws in it. It sucks. I've never broken anything before this and I hope it never happens again. <BR> <BR> I've been wondering how exercise will be after I can walk again. I was thinking an elliptical might be better than a treadmill so it's not so high impact on my joints. Tue, 19 Jan 2016 14:10:25 EST Trump = narcissistic personality disorder? A person with narcissistic personality disorder: <BR> <BR> Reacts to criticism with anger, shame or humiliation <BR> Takes advantage of others to reach his or her own goals <BR> Exaggerates own importance <BR> Exaggerates achievements and talents <BR> Entertains unrealistic fantasies about success, power, beauty, intelligence or romance <BR> Has unreasonable expectation of favorable treatment <BR> Requires constant attention and positive reinforcement from others <BR> Disregards the feelings... Thu, 26 Nov 2015 12:36:18 EST OK What About Carson What makes Carson such a strong Republican contender? Mon, 9 Nov 2015 17:36:29 EST Religion I see lots of facebook posters about religion and how if you don't repost the meme that you're not a good Christian and whatnot. <BR> <BR> Then I see counter memes that say REAL Christians do this that or the other and that the above kind aren't coming from real Christians. <BR> <BR> Then I see "shaming" memes of people saying that real Christians don't do this or whatever... <BR> <BR> What if religion didn't exist at all? How many people would be alive today and how advanced would our tec... Wed, 28 Oct 2015 09:25:55 EST OK What About Trump I am Canadian so I do not have a dog in the race. But from my perspective he seems like a reality star looking for a bigger role. I liked Obama's comment from a few years ago when he called Trump a carnival barker. <BR> <BR> What's in it for Trump? He wants to reduce taxes on corporations, the wealthy and eliminate inheritance tax, all things that will benefit him personally. <BR> <BR> Do you think he can win? <BR> Tue, 27 Oct 2015 12:20:48 EST Fallacies: top ten list Copied and pasted from <BR><BR>commandments-rational-debate-logical-f<BR>allacies-explained/ <BR> <BR> 1. Though shall not attack the person’s character, but the argument itself. (“Ad hominem”) <BR> <BR> Example: Dave listens to Marilyn Manson, therefore his arguments against certain parts of religion are worthless. After all, would you trust someone who listens to that devil worshiper? <BR> <BR> 2. Though shall not misrepresent or exaggerate a per... Wed, 23 Sep 2015 09:33:11 EST Openly Secular Do you know any atheists? <BR> <BR> In my world there has been a lot of people I know who are coming out as being openly secular. Most are just announcing it rather being against something religious. <BR> <BR> I don't know what to think. Mon, 21 Sep 2015 12:40:42 EST Race in America Is anyone willing to have a civil, thoughtful discussion about race in America, hopefully avoiding personal attacks and accusations? I hope I'm looking in the wrong places, but most of what I see on TV news and read in discussion groups indicates mostly hatred on both (all) sides. <BR> <BR> There are many topics to cover, but I'd like to start with what I think might be an easy but important one: labels. <BR> <BR> Many white folks seem fine with "white". Folks of other races seem to prefer ... Sun, 2 Aug 2015 08:38:01 EST Does anyone drive and/or ride Uber? I live in a big metro area and it is really booming here. <BR> <BR> What are your experiences? Like? Dislike? <BR> <BR> I see that it is very convenient and inexpensive and a great alternative for NOT driving when you've had a few. <BR> <BR> Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:22:38 EST Guns Is anyone a gun owner? <BR> What do you own? <BR> What was your first gun? <BR> <BR> If not, are you against guns? Why? Sun, 24 May 2015 08:18:27 EST SparkPeople app Does anyone else use the app? <BR> I've been using it for a while. I really like it. <BR> <BR> I have the spark recipes as well. Fri, 22 May 2015 23:00:47 EST Group picture and leaders I can't believe the group picture is the same from when Kimmie started this group back in 2009. Lol <BR> <BR> Do the leaders ever stop by and post? Fri, 22 May 2015 22:58:33 EST Topics fitting for this group! Yeah, Yeah, I'm back and under a different name (long story). <BR> <BR> Let's try to breathe some life into this group again, what are topics that are fitting of this group's name that we can talk about? <BR> <BR> Religion <BR> Politics <BR> Sex (kinky or otherwise) <BR> Police Profiling (real or not?) <BR> World Events (bad ones) <BR> Bruce Jenner (him or her?) <BR> Ben Affleck (slave owner?) <BR> Why everyone hates the Philthadelphia Flyers! <BR> <BR> What's your poison!? <BR> <BR> <B... Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:16:26 EST I'm Back Just saying hello again. I was more active on here in 2007-2008 when I lost 70 pounds in 8 months. Since then I put about 45 pounds back on. I reverted back to old bad habits but now I'm ready to regain my body and health. I would love to talk here or elsewhere and hopefully help motivate myself as well as others. 2015 is going to be my year!! Who else wants to reach their goals this year? <BR> <BR> Steve Mon, 26 Jan 2015 12:37:02 EST Hi! I'm Sharie Hello! I like the premise for this Team. I'm back at SparkPeople after having gained back the 30 lbs I lost in 2012. Yeah, I got really lazy with the exercise and thought I could depend upon housework, gardening, remodeling my home but no. Now, I'm back up the 30 and am having issues with my back. Nice. Anyway, I'm a newbie to this Team and looking forward to it to keep my either laughing or boiling. Either way I will be entertained, I'm sure. <BR> <BR> <em>213</em> Fri, 23 Jan 2015 15:41:42 EST How do you handle Buffet outings?

I am trying hard to get my eating under control, so I turned to Sparkpeople to help. I am a big girl, and want to lose weight, but my problem isn't from overeating, but from under eating. Starvation mode is hard to get out of, especially when my body is telling me that I am not hungry, and food is a bad idea. I have managed around 1300 calories a day for a couple days now tho so yay me! I am a social person, and a... Tue, 3 Jun 2014 21:20:13 EST More SP Changes.... "The Planner will be removed from SparkPeople on June 10. We recommend moving any Planner items to another calendar." <BR> <BR> I copied this statement from the notice on the Planner page. :/ <BR> <BR> I'm thinking this might also include the Journal. If you have anything there you want to keep, start moving it soon. <BR> <BR> You might look into Google Calendar if you use the calendar feature here. My hubby uses Google Calender a lot and likes it. Sat, 31 May 2014 13:33:42 EST Hi there. Hi there. I Jeff and I've been living in Japan for 13 years now. I'm from California. I'm new to SP.

Cloth toilet paper, and sponges as tampons! <BR> <BR> I have always wanted to try something different cause I hate wasting money on pads but was always to scared of a diva cup.

I was chatting with my fiancé today talking about some financial goals and what I am working on this year. Then he shared he is aiming to be well off financially to where I wouldn't have too work if I didn't want to. So I told him if we ever did that we would have to share money. Two become One! He said "I know" Then I told him I would still work and went DAVE Ramsey on him. lol. <BR> <BR> I told him we could live off his income and just put mine in a savings account. We could make a budg...

I might get it on Wednesday after all my bills are paid. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Mon, 24 Mar 2014 16:26:58 EST Finally given in..... I have finally given in to "slow and steady wins the race". <BR> <BR> This month I have focused on my eating and started going for walks again outside. <BR> <BR> I have not rushed anything or been impatient. It's paid off cause my fitted jeans fit a lot better! And I did lose a few pounds, 8 I think. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Mon, 24 Mar 2014 16:18:27 EST What is your favorite breakfast?
