What did you learn today?

(Jacqueline Porter) #1445

I have learnt that exercise is a wonderful thing, Underneath this pile of blubber I can feel a wonderfully toned body! At the moment it looks a bit flabby but, hey! I’m sure it will all come good in the end!

I have also learnt that even if you can wiggle your way in to a size 14 pair of skinny jeans, it doesn’t mean you should!!!:roll_eyes:
That little bit of squishy flesh has to pop out somewhere!!

I learnt that even on a relatively low amount of training I can get faster

(Jennibc) #1448

He referenced that book that you alluded to in the post I linked to, so I can see how that would be confusing.

Yet Again going out with others ( user error )
I should just not go🙂

The 100% Given and known - I’m not hungry for breakfast. Therefore I do not eat at all. Nothing. I drink black coffee. I show up. Period.
The Ask - “ would you like to meet us out for breakfast”
The Answer - “ Ok, sure. “
The Arrival - Waitress taking orders , “ ok. I will have Just iced black coffee please “.
THE OTHER(S) - “ oh, you are not eating? You should just get a side of something” … Then comes the look of confusion and shock on their behalf. Perplexed :joy:

I learnt…Somethings will never change
And, I don’t care at all
In the beginning, I would get angry or upset
Now…just a lovely NSV👍🏻

troy, just a lovely NSV is how it should be. I would hope that your friends are supportive of your wanting to take care of your health.

I have been eating this way so long my friends think nothing of me saying “I can’t eat that.” One of them even makes sure I have raspberries with cream available when we eat at her house. She went low carb after asking me what I did to lose my weight, but still eats somethings I would not put in my mouth, but she understands the no breads, pastas, and potatoes since that is about all she does and she lost the 20 lbs. she had gained. I’ve learned we all do what we can, if someone doesn’t want to do keto fine by me, if they just cut down on all the bad stuff it is still a good thing.

Today, I learned what penury means. :slight_smile:


  • n. Extreme want or poverty; destitution.
  • n. Lack; want; scantiness.
  • n. Extreme poverty; want; indigence.

Thanks @Elle79!

(Troy) #1454

I have to confess…
And for me, I learnt what the heck the word “ learnt “ means or that it can be used at all in any form :joy:

Thanks this thread😄

(Eric - Less is more!) #1455

I learned today that stress eating keto friendly food is or can be pretty guilt free. I do love macadamia nuts and pork rinds.


I learned that two out of our three very young angus calves have a wicked sense of humor. Saturday morning…the one morning hubby and I can sleep in…the calves decide to go exploring outside the fence. At 4:30 am. No amount of fencing can hold them.
Anyone care to hazard a guess what happens next?
Yes, that’s correct. The Mama cows call them. And call them. And call them. And keep calling them until the whole damn penninsula is awake!
Its been a long day.

Maybe this should be in the Humor thread. Just saying. :rofl:

In reference to diet - I always wondered why killer whales didn’t eat people… very interesting that they’d kill and eat dolphins and even other whales, but not people. Either they don’t like our low fat content, or they have a cultural or learned bias to not eat us.

I thought it was an interesting article.

(Hyperbole- it’s the best thing in the universe! ) #1459

Killer whales are dolphins. So… “they’d kill and eat whales and even other dolphins.”

(KCKO, KCFO) #1460

Those are two of my favorite things. Sung in my imitation of Julie Andrews voice.

(Karim Wassef) #1461

ok… courage and confidence… :slight_smile:

(KCKO, KCFO) #1462

That is awesome.


I learned today that bad science frequents in professional sports, as well - just like with nutrition, research is thrown around and interpreted as an individual sees fit. Sports as an institution/factory/business…:woman_facepalming:

(Bacon is the new bacon) #1464

I learned from the TV show, QI, that the term “killer whale” is a mistranslation of a Spanish word meaning “whale-killer.”
