I wrote that above in the prior post. Status enables both self-satisfaction and peer one-up-manship. Also, high status women attract the men.

So you can simply ignore and choose not to play. [ Reply | More ]

I think you'll be ok with spinning. Really, you can go at your own pace and nobody is paying attention to how you're doing. It's not that hard if you don't overdo it. But weight training helps you lose the most weight in my experience.. Spinning is supplementary. Good luck! [ Reply | More ]

Soul Cycle fan here. At my studio, e83, there are usually a wide range of body types - from whippet thin to seriously overweight, young to old, men and women. Sure there are some "front row" types who clearly go all the time, but I interact zero with anyone there so have no idea whether they are cliquey or not. Most people get in and get out. The workout is dark, so noone sees or cares. Just take a bike towards the back (you book specific bikes in advance), until you are confident with the rhythm - as everyone gets to see the person / people in front. [ Reply | More ]

Wheat and sugar are actually physically addicting. I used to have candy pretty much every single day until I quit refined sugar. Next I gave up gluten and that was the real life changer- wheat spikes your blood sugar and is an appetite STIMULANT so after you eat it you want more food soon after. Now that I'm gluten free I rarely think about food and only eat when I'm hungry whereas before I was a slave to my erratic blood sugar- it's fantastic. [ Reply | More ]
