What is your latest non-academic/work related accomplishment? Can be anything, personal growth, physical/mental health, volunteering, charity work, etc. 😌

To resist the urge to go buy a pizza for lunch today 😂 It was so strong, it certainly felt like an achievement! But I'm very happy I've started to prioritise my own health. Despite me not eating the best food over midsummer, I've quickly been able to bounce back. I'll be making a casserole shortly, to get back on track with the habit I want to create of always having some kind of food prepped at home 😊
I'm of the firm belief that good habits trigger each other! If I have food prepped, I have a stronger urge to go work out since I know I won't have to spend energy cooking. If I work out, I'll sleep better, etc. etc. I just have to keep this up!

Which is your favorite holiday foodwise? What do you eat then? 🍗🐟🥔

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Definitely Christmas! I stuff myself with all the food. We usually have a fry up for breakfast, then a roast dinner. A little buffet or "picky bits" in the evening, then I personally stuff myself with so much chocolate until I feel sick. I always regret eating too much, but I just can't help it. You're allowed to over indulge at Christmas time. Easter is a close second because chocolate is honestly one of my favourite foods, but Christmas wins it because of the variety. We do the same for Boxing Day, and we have all the family around. It's a good time. 🙂

You were 130 and now you weigh 120.Then how tf do you weigh more now then you did before?Gain those 10 pounds back

I weighed more than lost it again. So I went from 130-120-125 I have PCOS which means I constantly gain weight and loose weight. I’m not purposely loosing weight. The only thing I changed was I stopped eating carbs and lost all the bloating I had in my stomach. And have a healthy diet now. I am not skinny and I am not fat I’m simply fit and I am healthy. If you do not like it then go look at someone else it’s that simple. My weight is NOT my control I will not be gaining anything back. All I do is maintain my diet simple

I am in despair, too sad to go for a walk. I was listening to atif aslam a while ago, and that tone is still in my head. The moon is too bright and the weather is good. But i am too sad to walk. What should i do right now?

Hey, you should open the window, sit with it, close your eyes, and take deep breaths. Then you could go and wash your face, do a little skin care routine and sit down to drink some water and eat something light.
Think about the problem(s) that is/are making you feel that way, accept that maybe you cannot do anything right now, feel sad about it, cry while eating something. Embrace the helplessness. Then you make a little list about something positive; solutions to your problems, what qualities do you have to tackle those problems, or some good memories. But if you're too tired, just watch something.

I may never be famous...but why should I be sad. It may be for the best.

Exactly and the only good thing that I could think of when it comes to being famous is being financially secure for life and being able to treat yourself to just about anything that requires money (traveling, eating out, access to private pools and/or having your own pool, etc.).

Thoughts on Danemark taking Korean ramen off the shelves for being too spicy?

They’re taking them off the shelves because there is a health risk with these noodles.
I totally get it. I’ve tried these noodles 5 times and each time it completely goes beyond my scale of tolerance. My tolerance is high, but these noodles are just????
There are also people getting hospitalized after eating the noodles, so I understand they take these off the shelves.
Though however, in my opinion people just should be more careful and not use the whole package in one time, but divide it over several meals.

Has anyone ever reserved a study room at a library and just hung out with a friend, talk, and use electronics?

I used to sit in the library for about two hours during study hall back when I was in high school. I also chose to sit in the library during lunch time since I didn’t have anyone to talk to during lunch and people would complain about me “staring” when I was just looking around while eating my pop tarts. I’d go on my chromebook, draw, study, and/or get my school work done while sitting there and hardly ever socialized with anyone.

What was the last question that came to your mind but you haven't found an answer to it?

AsMaaGaDo97’s Profile PhotoAsmaa
🌷 My answer is not exactly what you've asked, but more like why I don't have a Q which I have not found an answer to.
I am in a point of my life where I'm contented with whatever is blessed to me.... that includes information. If it doesn't concern me, then I leave it be. There's a saying, "Ignorance is a bliss", if one does not knowany information that does not concern them, one does not have to worry about it.
Sometimes there are things that we don't have to know for our own good. And this reminds me of the story when Adam (a.s.) and Hawwa was tempted and enticed by Iblis to eat from the Tree of Knowledge that was forbidden for them to eat from. After eating from the tree they've realised they were naked and felt shame.... malice sprouted in their minds. Somehow their innocence was gone.
And like what I've shared from one of my answers here before, I felt that I've lost my innocence when I've learned negative things from what I've seen others do. It's either I've observed or experienced it personally from them (being treated unfairly / unjustly). Subconsciously, I've been unwillingly given ideas about wrong behaviours which I've never thought of before.... like how it's done by other people. And I have to constantly remind myself that just because I can do it too, it doesn't mean I should copy them. So, I listen to my conscience and follow my own moral compass to stand on what I believe is right.
I used to be curious, but I've realised I don't need to know everything, especially things that doesn't concern me. And whatever I do need to know.... it'll come to my knowledge somehow. Allah would make sure of it, as it has happened to me many times already. I do get informations in mysterious ways.... like in a dream, flashes of a scene or images, etc., which helped me to have discernment in making decisions and how to deal with people in my life. It was weird but I am grateful for it, alhamdulillah😊

If you for whatever reason moved away from the country where you currently live, what things would you miss the most? ✈️😕

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
At first, it is exciting. You don't really think about missing anything. What you do think about is this new, exciting life and environment you're about to have. Everything smells different, tastes different. Feels different. You feel like a completely different person.
And theeeen it starts piling up on you. Like a blanket that's full of rocks. Heavy. You feel like you're suffocating and don't belong there. You miss the wind, the trees, the grass. Everything. You miss the freedom you had in your own country - the familiarity. You feel alone, misunderstood, and judged. In your own defence, you start to misunderstand and judge others as well.
In the end, it gets so worse that you don't even want to leave the house anymore. Although it wasn't as bad as you think, it's very hard mentally. The vivid dreams you start having of eating foods they don't have. The memories keep coming back. It feels like someone pulled out your tooth and you keep touching the empty space.
Now, moving back is another thing. You're excited to go back. Like you're stepping away from that dep.res.sive place you hated so much - the place you didn't belong in.
BUT, you've come to realise that you can also miss the place that you didn't belong in. The pizza, the environment itself. The excitement of the country you know nothing about. Even though when you've spent years there and realised why you ha.ted it so much, the best thing was to enjoy the moments - all of them.

What is your idea of self-care?

iqraza72’s Profile Photoاقرا۶ رضا
Eating healthy food, sleeping on time, having loads of water, keeping a check on your vitamin and mineral deficiencies and having supplements for it, having a nice head massage while applying hair oil, going for a walk daily, meditation and workout.

If you're someone who either drive or take public transport, what conditions would have to be met for you to consider biking to your destination instead? 🚴

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I dislike exercise in general, so biking isn’t really a cup of tea. Growing up my parents often forced me to exercise in combination with unhealthy dieting methods, which in turn lead to disordered eating.

I don't get it why do i feel frustrated or get angry for no reason.

Honey, it's okay to feel emotions even if you can't identify the reasons behind them. Some humans are slow at processing situations and emotions. Let yourself feel the frustration and anger. Let it sit with you at the table while you're eating, thinking or whatever. Writing down about your life will help.

What is your 'chills' meal? 😅

LarryStylestomlinson436’s Profile PhotoMe - Larry
🌷 I'm not sure what you meant by "chills" meal.
Food to calm me down or food I eat when I am in a bad mood?
Well, when I'm upset.... I do not feel like eating anything. I have no appetite at all.
Or was it food that I like to eat cold?
I prefer to eat fruits when they are chilled. Like grapes, watermelon, peaches, apple, pears, pineapple, strawberries, oranges, berries, etc.

Has it ever happened to you that you've never had issues with foods or drinks, and then one day they start giving you trouble? That happened to me with wine. I can't drink it anymore because it gives me severe heartburn. I'm not even mad about it because i seldom drink anymore, but it's still weird.

I did go through a period where I felt nauseous at the thought of eating any food but thankfully that went away. I had heartburn when I was eating Nutella at one point and I thought it was because of Nutella but it didn’t happen the last few times I’ve had it so I guess it was just a coincidence that I had it while having Nutella.

Do you usually have three meals a day,-breakfast lunch, and dinner? I don’t ever have a proper breakfast. My breakfast consist of multiple cups of coffee. I have lunch and dinner on my good days otherwise it’s just lunch.

I do not! Typically I only need 2 meals. I either eat as soon as I wake up and eat a late “lunch” or I eat a Brunch and dinner. If I get hungry between, I like a cup of tea or vegetables as snacks. I know it sounds odd, but veggies are my favorite. I think it’s a texture thing. I love crunch and crisp!
Do you get headaches from only eating once a day or are you okay? I get hangry. If I only ate once a day, I’d be wanted for mцгdεr. 😅😅😅🤦🏽‍♀️😅😜

I had ice cream a while ago. I was on a sugar detox. I wouldn't have regretted my decision of eating ice-cream if it were good. It was v bad. That's a stupid thing to feel guilty about, but i feel bad. You can make make fun of me.

You need another ice cream to make yourself feel better, make sure you get the flavour right this time, sigh

Have you ever tried to lose weight by eating smaller portions? If yes, how did you deal with the hunger?

The whole point of losing weight is to eat about 400-600 calories less than you burn per day. You can basically eat everything, as long as you mind the portion size.
Certain foods are very calorie dense and some are very low in calories. You can eat bigger amounts of low calorie foods compared to calorie dense foods. When loosing weight it’s important to eat a good amount of protein. Protein sources are often calorie dense foods, so it’s adviced to find a balance between low calorie and calorie dens foods. This way, you won’t feel hungry!

> what do u like about me now? - Your big ideas AND big sunglasses. Oh, and that short skirt + fishnets. 🤣 > oh, i do want to go climbing… - Climb on board! We're blasting off soon... Hurry up before Sage sneaks in again! :::closes hatch quickly, locks it::: 🤣🤣🤣 💗

So what's your idea of a perfect date?

harryharis’s Profile PhotoSyed Haris
Watching her come towards you when you’re there to pick her up. Opening the door for her.
Bot eating at fancy restaurants, but getting our fav chowmien from those truck guys and eating it at the most random parking spot we can find together. Getting bubble tea for her and an iced coffee for myself, and during all this, there’s a 101% chance a random gajra seller will knock on your window who you can’t deny. End it with dropping her off, not at her home but near because she’s a scared little princess who switched to the back seat bcz apparently i’m her uber driver if someone sees😭.

Is it common for autistic children to be picky about food? My cousin's child hates greens. She isn't even 3 yet, but if a food has greens in it, she deliberately picks them all apart, then repeatedly says loudly 'I don't want greens, I don't want greens, I don't want greens

I’m not sure if I’m on the spectrum since I never got tested for it but, I used to eat spaghetti as a kid and now, I can’t get myself to eat it. I don’t like the appearance and texture of certain foods which is why I also can’t see myself eating squid or octopus. I’ve always liked salads and never had an issue with greens thankfully 😁

What did you love about the early 2000s?

zaidwali915’s Profile PhotoZaid Wali
I was just born but I'll tell you what I loved about the mid or late 2000s:
1) Completing my school HW in the school bus itself so I wouldn't have to bother with it at home📚
2) Coming home from school and watching Scooby- Doo🐶
3) Dancing with my Sister👩🏽‍🤝‍👩🏼
4) Sneaking outside the house and putting on heels of the female guests that came home lol 👠
5) Eating a lot of Vada pav😋
6) When I'd go to my Nani's during vacation cuddle with her (squeeze the life out of her) and take afternoon naps😴
7)Listen to Nana's motivational and ghost stories haha
8) Meeting all the lovely ladies who'd come to school every year from the US who would appreciate our performance for the Annual Christmas Celebration (I was a part of the choir)🎤
9) Write song lyrics in my rough book and sing with friends in school and classes😂
10) Drawing, Sketching and Painting 🖌️ 🎨
P.S. So grateful for everything, it was truly an amazing time.
Thanks for this question, brought back beautiful memories!!✨👶🏼

When you have a sick day, how do you usually spend it? 🤒📺📖

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I usually like to take things slow and focus on self-care like curling up with my loved one or watching some of my favourite shows or movies - something that doesn't require too much energy but still makes me feel happy and relaxed and try to make sure that I am staying hydrated and nourished by drinking plenty of water and eating healthy foods if possible. And sometimes, just getting some extra rest can be the best medicine. 🌻

You're only eating an apple? Are you on that apple diet? I've read about it recently.

He offered to buy me a snack with his own money so I said I'd take an apple bc I didn't want to be greedy or anything lol. I normally would've said no but I didn't bring anything to eat today and I am starving lol

What's one of your favorite things to cook? Feel free to include the recipe and / or a picture if you want! Am looking for some inspiration 🍳🍲

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Recently we've been using meal kits (namely, Hello Fresh) for most of our dinners, since it works out slightly cheaper for us. It also has us eating a wider variety of foods and trying new things which is a good thing. Both myself and my partner are creatures of habit and if left to our own devices, we'd literally eat the same stuff all the time... 😅
One of our recent meals was a vegetable chilli with kidney beans and spinach and peppers. I didn't take a picture of it, but it was really good. Served with rice. I also added a little grated cheddar on top too because what meal can't be improved with a lil bit o' cheese? 👀🧀

When was the last time you had a full English breakfast ? 🍳

Qatari999243’s Profile Photoآل ثاني
I cooked one for myself and my fiance a couple of weekends ago! I figured it'd be a nice weekend treat. It's not something we do often since, y'know, that's an awful lot of fried food to be eating in one sitting... But it's nice every once in a while! 😋
