But you might not lose much weight... 2 miles a day is only about 180 calories and no muscle building. You need to boost your metabolism and you need fat in your diet. Better to add protein to your soup and salad as well as nuts and seeds. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] So my DH spends the week working in NY while we live in another state. It's not something our family will do long-term, but we're looking at another 6 months of this. My problem is my DH drinks daily and I'm worried about him being an alcoholic (both of his parents were). He goes out every night he is in NY (I don't expect him to sit home alone, yet I wish he would find something else to do than drinking/dinners with clients or colleagues). He just called and he's slurring. He was out late last night and was at a conference last week where he was out every night until late. WWYD? I don't want to be like a mother to him, but I think he needs to stop what he's doing. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You can do it. First, cut carbs. I have eggs for breakfast, salad for lunch and a very light dinner (meat or fish with veggies). Drink lots of water. I drink a couple cups of coffee during the day (no sugar), which keeps away hunger pangs. I try to walk extra - for example, walk to a further subway stop. Get plenty of sleep at night. 8 hours. This is what I do and I am a size 4 (and also, I have a lot of overweight people in my family, so I definitely have fat genes). I never have time for the gym, so this is the best I can so.

I grew up in NHP. It was only okay. At the time, was very blue collar (though my dad was an engineer). I prefer Floral Park. I personally think it's a hidden gem. My sister lives there with DCs and is very happy. [ Reply | More ]

Floral Park is nice but its expensive for the amount of space you get and taxes. It's basically Queens with Nassau taxes. Also kindergarten is half day in the Floral Park-Bellrose school district. [ Reply | More ]

Thanks, all. I grew up nearby and worked in FP so I remember how cute it was. Good points about the taxes. How are the public schools? [ Reply | More ]

No shit, Sherlock. We see this all the time on UB. People (especially moms) are into their kids, not each other. [ Reply | More ]

Not in my house. My parents made it clear their relationship came first. I feel the same way. Doesn't mean I don't live and care for my children. [ Reply | More ]

Unless you are a historian I don't know why we should care about your opinion about how women have always felt. Idiot. [ Reply | More ]

Not true at all. Until recently, kids were basically seen as mini-adults and expected to contribute to the household like adults. Parents didn't dote on children as they do nowadays. Even when I was growing up in the 80s, it was okay for parents to be into grown-up things and not so into their kids. [ Reply | More ]

I'm a bit older, but - just to cite some examples, which I assume are not unknown today - my parents regularly went on vacations without the kids, they would go skiing on the weekend separately from the kids, etc. [ Reply | More ]

Right; I had to take care of my two younger sisters and the chickens for up to a couple weeks at a time starting around age 10, in the 1970's. In an emergency I could call the police or use the truck to drive into town. [ Reply | More ]

Good article. "Another sign of the parenthood religion is that it has become totally unacceptable in our culture to say anything bad about our children, let alone admit that we don’t like them all of the time. We are allowed to say bad things about our spouses, our parents, our aunts and uncles, but try saying, “My kid doesn’t have a lot of friends because she’s not a super likable person,” and see how fast you get dropped from the PTA."

Children who are raised to believe that they are the center of the universe have a tough time when their special status erodes as they approach adulthood. Most troubling of all, couples who live entirely child-centric lives can lose touch with one another to the point where they have nothing left to say to one another when the kids leave home.
