Just tell the front desk you are being harassed by an arrogant angry European. This happened to me at the concierge desk when I was pregnant. Apparently I was taking too long, and this Italian guy started screaming at me and was very melodramatic. I was terrified. My husband told him to stop. The hotel management called me to see if I was ok. I felt so violated. Was horrible. [ Reply | More ]

Left coast kitchen (merrick), snaps (Wantagh) for new American, sangria 71 (Williston park I think) for Spanish tapas, sage bistro (bellmore) for French, there's a cheap taco place I forgot the name of in Snaps shopping center that reminds me of the cheap mex in the city, and so on. East West Bistro was good too. The Rodizio place in Bellmore across from the train is a big hit with the kids. I've never been to City Cellar or Benihanas and usually prefer more quirky places or ethnic food. Hicksville has the best indian food although Lazzat in N. Bellmore is good too [ Reply | More ]

So, I have a friend who is one of the kid's moms in this exact situation. The guy she had the kid with already had 2 from another marriage. Now he is dating another women, just like you. He is terrible, the whole situation is terrible, anyone that does this is not worth your time. [ Reply | More ]

Dealbreaker is an understatement. He is 8 years older. He has two HUGE failures in the most important relationship of your life department. He is okay seeing his kids once a month?? (Deal breaker on its own). He makes poor decisions, my friend. You are not the ONE. You are the THIRD one and he has time for a couple more. If you continue dating him, you are telling him you are okay settling and overlooking and he will automatically take advantage of that. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am dating someone 14 years younger than me and I can't understand the jealousy among my friends. My bf makes far less than their spouses and is not as "TT" as them. So why are they so jealous? (I don't talk about our sex life and our sex life is average anyway) 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I'm about 40 pounds overweight and cannot bear to join a gym in this state...or attend soul cycle or pure barre. I'm just too self-conscious. I'm also terribly depressed, which isn't helping my motivation or confidence to get going. Any advice? Where do heavy / normal people exercise in NYC? 35 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Just go to Blink. I was there today and a full range of people were exercising. Or else buy a recumbent bike or treadmill for home and really use it. Once you get going your mood will lift--trust me. [ Reply | More ]

I lost 60kbs last yr on a protein shake diet. My opinion is that exercise doesnt result in weight loss. Its all about diet. Exercise helps, but what you eat is more important. [ Reply | More ]

Go to Barry's Bootcamp. Don't be intimidated. You can do the treadmill at your own pace (but you won't want to). It seems like a scary place but if you talk to the right trainers, you will melt away. [ Reply | More ]

I think you should get on an SSRI. In a few weeks, you will be feeling better enough that you will want to do things that are good for you, like exercise. YOu certainly don't have to stay on the med forever, but until you feel these new habits are entrenched. [ Reply | More ]

Start walking everywhere. I don't know what your commute is like but if you have a choice: taking the subway or walking 20-30 blocks, then allocate time and walk. I did that and lost all post-pregnancy weight in no time. Given that your diet is healthy of course. [ Reply | More ]
