[ - ] I am kind of freaked out because my DH's family is insanely catholic and they also have mental illness in the family. They go to church every day, crosses on the walls, brother is 46 yr old virgin and only dates catholic virgins. I let db get christened and let him apply to catholic pre-k but now DH is saying he wants him to stay in catholic school. Aside from the fact that we cant afford it and our public option is much better I am scared my dc will get to be a religious fanatic like them. Should I just insist he go to regular K? What are the chances that he gets fanatical from catholic school and confirmation stuff? 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

While I think it's slim, it's always possible. An acquintance was one of 4 kids of a secular Jewish family. Her oldest brother went to Orthodox school only because it was the only option in the neighborhood (the publics were not good). Eventually, all four siblings attended that school and all 4 are far more religious than their parents ever were. Not crazy, no mental illness, but school and friends do influence a child. Depends if you are afraid of Catholicism (could happen) or mental instability (not likely). [ Reply | More ]

I've brought it up so many times, I realize there is no point for me to do it again. I agree, I think they want to spend time with him and keep him up later.

Haha true! He is everything I look for in a guy- blue eyes, not too tall, a shrewd businessman but still tactful and kind. The fact that he was old enough to be in bars while I was a fetus is not a deal breaker. (I mean, he's only 2 years older than my ex. What's another 2 years?) [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Assuming I'm already at a healthy weight, is it healthier to work out 3 times a week for an hour of every day of the week for an hour? (The hour consists of a work out class that is half cardio and half weight training.) 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If you have a history of joint problems in the family, 3 times a week would be healthier. If you have a history of heart disease in the family, every day would be healthier [ Reply | More ]

CNN did a story last week on how those who work out 3 times a week have slightly lower rates of heart problems than those who work out every day. But it didn't say whether or not it was a controlled study so could be that the people who worked out every day were more likely to have a history of heart disease in the family and thus would have died sooner anyway and the daily work outs actually prolonged their lives to some degree [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] S/O on Atkins for weight loss: Can you really transition to add more carbs back in your daily routine, or do you just start gaining the weight back as soon as you do? Anyone BTDT? Anyone successfully transitioned and kept the weight off? 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Did Atkins 10 years ago. Lost 30lbs, transitioned and gained it all back +10. South beach approach is more realistic. [ Reply | More ]

You can gain weight on Atkins, you can lose weight eating carbs. It all depends on total calories per day. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. If you can't go the rest of your life without eating carbs, it's better not to lose weight by cutting them. [ Reply | More ]

My carb # is around 65 to 85. Any more and I gain. I lost about 25 lbs in 1999. I watch what I eat but will splurge every now and then. [ Reply | More ]

Nope. Every time I creep up 2 or 3 pounds, I cut back. The key, I think, is to take those first few pounds seriously. Otherwise, slippery slope. [ Reply | More ]

Problem is you add the carbs back but still eating the fat. Your calorie count goes up and you gain weight. [ Reply | More ]

Ah this makes sense - you'd have to trade the carbs for fat as you transitioned [ Reply | More ]
