Another "I want to lose weight" thread! 9 Health & Fitness 3/27/15 1:53am
Alchameer
I'll try to address everything you mentioned, I appreciate such a lengthy, detailed post! It seems as though I have a similar routine to what you had, so it's good to know I set some reasonable speeds. I do think I'll start weight lifting a little earlier than anticipated. I don't run every day, right now it's 3 or 4 times a week on average. My boyfriend and I go at the same times. ...

I will definitely keep this in mind. I have not experienced any back pain as a result of running though, and I think some of it has to do with my posture at times. I think doing some lifting or more specific stretches/yoga that target the back will take care of my dull back pain. It's possible that my job is affecting it slightly, I'm on my feet most of the time. If I am able to sit, it's no ...

It's all lower back when it shows up. Only on occasion do I have pain in my shoulders. I just need to do more exercises involving my back, I think. And someone has suggested lifting, so I will probably start to incorporate that soon.

No, I'm not a lifter at all. This is my start in the world of fitness. Most pain that I have experienced so far is in my back, and that isn't even during my running. I am also dating a licensed massage therapist so he is able to help my body recover in the event I really cause a problem that is muscle related.

I thought I'd come to this forum and try to get some ideas and look for suggestions from other users of this forum, but let me tell you about myself first. I'm 27 years old, I stand 6'6" and weigh 330 lbs. (I'm pretty sure I used the scale properly, but will ask someone the next time I'm at the gym to verify) For the last 3 or 4 weeks now I have been going to the gym and trying to be more ...

Oily Hairy and Skin Cleaning? 3 Health & Fitness 3/24/15 1:18am

Using hot water will probably help more than cold water when washing your face/hair too. Not scalding hot water though. I think this is all I can contribute as Roxxyy has already brought up some other good points.

Exercises for people with no gym membership! 4 Health & Fitness 3/25/15 3:44am

While doing mile-long walks are good, consider doing them more often. Don't go crazy though. Yoga might be worth considering too. I'm sure there are plenty of things you can find on Youtube or something else. Try to avoid salt and stuff like soda.

I had not considered purchasing specific socks. I like the anklet style of socks... anything shorter or longer than that drives me nuts. I will definitely check them out though, thanks!

So, for the last 3-4 weeks, I have started attending a gym. Most of that time has been dedicated to running (I also stretch before and after the initial work out). I recently ordered shoes intended for jogging but thought I'd ask if there were things I may have overlooked. Do my fellow gaians have recommendations for me? I run for a period of 3 minutes without stopping, then walk for 1 to 2 mi ...

Tektek 46 Site Feedback 3/25/15 12:51am
Obsidian Kaesken
I wasn't aware that Tekton had been advertising for his own site for such a long time. I still feel that Gaia could have acted much faster. I realize there is a lot to do when it comes to running a site... but if you KNOW someone is doing something sketch like this... letting them function for a decade is the sites own fault. It only became important after users supposedly stopped coming to Ga ...

A heterosexual flag is needed. [Suggestions/Designs Inside] 462 Site Feedback 4/25/15 7:31pm
All and Sundry
When playing Mario Kart, you don't get items like the dreaded blue shell and lightning bolt while in first place. A silly analogy, but appropriate. Why does there need to be a flag for people who identify as straight? Being straight doesn't exactly have a history of strife and inequality. People aren't going out of their way to try and lessen the quality of life for people who identify a ...

Gaia did allow the site to exist for a decade. It's oddly convenient that they waited until they reached such a low point. You are right, this probably won't kill Gaia. It sure as hell isn't going to help though.

Why Gaia's more responsible to US for the tektek debacle 130 Site Feedback 3/29/15 5:54am
Lady__Miko
At any point in time Gaia could have prioritized a system like Tektek. However, for ten years or so, they chose not to. With things going to s**t, they think that taking action against this site all of a sudden is a good idea... I'm sorry Gaia Staff, but you ******** up -REALLY- hard. People have been asking for a feature like TekTek for a decade. You have no one to blame but yourself. Ed ...
