|Young Calorie Counters||have you told your friends...||Feb 14 2008
I've told my mom and my sister. They're overweight and working on it, so it's a nice way to connect with them.
I've told my boyfriend also, and he thinks it's a little strange because I started being healthy so suddenly, but he's also very supportive.
Other than one other friend (who I only told "I joined a gym. Can I borrow your yoga mat?"), I haven't told anyone.

Thanks so much! I actually had a bottle of the dressing they use and it's 80 calories for 2 tbsp. So the salad is probably around 130 calories.

|really? On the back of the bag it said there were about 5 servings in the bag and I counted it out and it was more like 20!! of course, I'm not very good at judging weight, so you're probably right...I need to buy a scale.|

|So I basically just need to burn more than I eat? Is that right?|
|The Lounge||Tongue Piercing||Feb 12 2008
I've had my tongue pierced since november-ish.
The most uncomfortable part of the piercing process was getting the clamp put on. The piercing itself didn't actually hurt at all. I would describe the whole thing as being incredibly uncomfortable, but not actually painful.
Your tongue does swell up pretty badly for 2-3 days afterward, and you will talk with a sort of lisp for the rest of the day of the piercing, as well as the day after. However, popping a couple of aspirin helps tremendously.
The only reason the piercing should bleed is if the piercer does it incorrectly. If you go to a pro (DO GO TO A PRO!!!), it should not bleed.
My piercing cost $50.
Aftercare is simple. Carry around a bottle of anti-bacterial Listerine with you everywhere you go. Swish your mouth out after every meal and every beverage. Plus, swish it out randomly throughout the day.
Eating is a little difficult for 3-4 days...soup, ice cream, and mushy foods are generally best. I ate lots of mashed potatoes.
The day after piercing was definitely the worst for me. Your tongue kind of swells up around the piercing (which is why the initial bar they put in is so long), and that is a bit painful, but like I said, a couple of aspirin takes care of that in short order.
I think I left mine in for 4-6 weeks, then was able to change it. (Ask the person who pierces you, he/she will be very helpful.) I would definitely recommend changing to a piercing with a metal bar and PLASTIC balls as soon as you are able. This will prevent the danger of chipped teeth.
Good luck!! And don't be afraid. Being calm during the piercing is the biggest help of all. AND ASK QUESTIONS OF YOUR PIERCER! He/she is your bestest best friend!
