You used to be able to set your time zone in your profile.  Maybe adjust the time zone to be +8 hours to account for your actual end time?

CoachK-- I will be honest, I think the Calorie Camp FAQ is terrible.  And you can't find it unless you link to it or you google it.  I tried searching for it under Help and got nothing. 

It would be nice if the program would show how you earned your points, i.e. Person has 100 pts, and clicks points, and sees that on 4/8 they earned 8 pts for publishing their report and 2 pts for commenting.  Maybe there is a way to do this that I don't know about?

Thanks guys, sorry this was such a shallow question.  I promise to think deep thoughts to make up for it.

And get some friends while you're at it! :)

Or at least friends who actually attend baseball games :)

Anyone else curious what jason said? I missed it.

 Yes.  Especially given the response in post #4.

I'm hoping that means drea saw it and can report back :)

He said "Dont you have any friends?"

And if anyone reads Carolyn Hax, then you know that [glass bowl] (say it aloud) is a nice way of saying donkey hole.

I don't think temps in the 70s is too hot for a tee and capris (this coming from someone who can't handle heat). If it's going to rain, wearing a dress is probably a bad idea but it sounds like your mind is already made up.

I dont think it will be too hot, just that I am too fat, if that makes sense.  And I didnt think about the rain/long dress part... ugh.  Mind is not made up as I am worried I will be (look) foolish wearing the dress but uncomfortable in jeans or capris.

I need What not to wear to come make a visit.  And bring me a team t shirt :)

Thanks for the replies, guys.  I guess I will make the bf decide LOL.

@Jason... thanks.  Nice to have some [glass bowl] in the morning with my cheerios...

@Sweetpea... I dont have a team shirt!  And my stupid ankles swell so I will probably wear jeans.... which just sounds UGH! to me.  Think the dress is out?

That moment after hours of struggling, pushing, not pushing, feeling like you are being expected to move a skyscraper with your womb...the rush when the baby's head clears is indescribable.

Second only to the expression on his face when looks down at you, an expression filled with the most perfect manifestation of joy you have ever before beheld, and tells you "It's a boy. Good job honey."

**this** i want this.  I want the joy in his eyes.  To me, that would be my perfect moment.

Weight Loss This site and others are NOT helping me lose weight! Please help me understand!!! Jul 21 2011

If your ability to lose weight and your gain has changed since having your daughter, you might want to have your thyroid tested.  It is very common for pregnancy to throw the thyroid out of whack and can be a contributing factor to very slow/nonexistent weight loss.

Also, do you use a scale as well as measuring spoons and cups?  If you arent measuring, it is very difficult to have a true idea of what you are actually eating.  A half a cup of cottage cheese is a heck of a lot less than you think, when weighed by grams (same with cereal, pasta, etc).

Good luck!

Just as an aside, most states have a provision to allow you to file for divorce if you dont have the other party's address.  A local attorney or other legal advisor (and sometimes the local clerk's office) can advise you further as to the steps necessary.  

The Lounge Anyone know anything about palladium wedding bands? Apr 26 2011

I havent personally but do know a handful that have ordered smaller items (less than $1500) from them and as far as I can tell, they have great customer service and a very easy return policy-- as well as very quick service.

I might go to a local store and try on some bands for style size and color and such... and then see if you can get a better price on Bluenile.com.  (I played around with an engagement ring that I liked, and I could get twice the diamond at a better grade for 2k less).

A very odd place to get jewelry but believe it or not, decent quality and great price, is sam's club.  I know, weird, huh?

I really like Blue Nile for online jewelry shopping.  http://www.bluenile.com/palladium-jewelry/pal ladium-education?track=head   is info on palladium and they have a nice collection and range of mens bands.

Congrats and good luck!

You use your hands to mimic the sucking action of the infant and manually express it (i.e. express by hand).  Also, those of us with larger breasts could probably reach....

You can manually express it but I think Random is right.  It would be a net loss calorically and hydration-wise.  The true question would really be who you give it to...

(breast milk is somewhere between 15 and 20 calories an oz so even a nice 8 oz bottle isnt going to do you much good.)

That was incredibly useful and interesting.  Thank you so much for sharing it!  It should allay a lot of our fears, at least it does for me.
