Today is my 35th birthday, so yeah I'm feeling kinda old now that I'm officially in my mid-thirties. Especially since I always kinda thought I'd be farther along in life by now, I mean I guess everybody kinda feels this way but I'm still trying to finish college for Pete's sake (though also I got my Associates degree yesterday so that's good but I still have like 3 more years to get my Bachelor's). And it doesn't help that I've found like 3 silver hairs on my head in the past week. But I started the day with stuffed crust pizza and Crunch bars because that's how you do birthday breakfast right, right? And I'm ordering burgers for my birthday dinner, so looking forward to that.

Tl/dr, It's my 35th birthday today and I'm kinda having a midlife crisis rn but I'm a pro at eating my feelings so it's all good. :cool:

You're not alone, Squeezably. Even though I'm not there just yet, I've had a very similar version of the crisis you described.

Wishing you the happiest and most scrumptious birthday possible!

Important Update on my Fascinating Life: I think I might have mentioned here before that I've been basically housebound since I came back to be with my mom in Florida, since we didn't have a vehicle and being in a wheelchair and unable to transfer myself makes it more complicated to get rides. Well, we just found a used van with a lift for the chair that we were juuuuust able to pull together enough money to buy. Still not really going anywhere just yet since I don't drive and mom can't until she has cataract surgery (which she is scheduled for in a couple weeks), but this is definitely an exciting development!

Also, I've definitely decided I will be going to the University of North Florida next month and mom and I had been going around and around about me wanting to live in the dorm again and her wanting to move to Jacksonville and have me stay with her and commute. But it looks like I'm going to get what I wanted because after buying the van we won't have enough money for mom to move by next month. So I know mom is disappointed about that and will worry about me and I will worry about her too, but also I'm excited to be on my own(ish) and have the freedom to do things like I want to again (like unrestricted eating and gaining and, erm, other stuff ).

Idk if I'm feeling irritable and emotional because I'm hungry, or if I just want to emotionally eat because I'm in a bad mood. Or if I just happen to coincidentally be hungry and cranky at the same time.

Yep, I feel hungry a lot when I'm lonely, irritable, emotional, anxious, sad, happy, moody, excited, nervous, cold, hot... lol

Ok so I'm not great at all that mathy-wathy numbery stuff but ever since I came across the concept of a weight setpoint, I've really wanted to know what mine is. I spent a year last year eating completely unrestricted partly to see what effect this had on my weight, I don't think I reached my setpoint though because I gained regularly throughout that whole period and never leveled off. But I do have a pretty good idea of how much I was eating during that time (around 3,000 calories a day), and by using some of that numbery stuff I figured up the weight at which 3,000 calories a day would be the maintenance amount for me. Which I figure is probably pretty close to my setpoint. Would you believe it came out to 315 pounds?! I suppose if that's how much my body wants to weigh, it's no wonder I'm miserable trying to starve it down to no more than 119 so I can be considered a "healthy weight" for my height according to the bmi chart.
If your body wants to weigh 315 and you want to see if that weight feels good, EAT! Some of us enjoy being with round beauties.

I second Tad's compliment. And speaking of cute... polar bear coke! I wouldn't have hated it if they'd done that for us here in SA as well.
Yeah, last year's Christmas cans were pretty but I'm glad they brought back the bears. I'd really like to see the Santa cans come back some year but idk that might be considered too politically uncorrect nowadays.

I've decided one of my New Year's resolutions for 2020 will be to get more involved here at Dims. I'm setting a goal of making at least 3 posts a day whenever I can. My depression makes me really unmotivated and antisocial sometimes, to the point where even texting and keeping up with social media seems like a chore, but I love y'all and always find loads of intriguing food for thought here, so I think this will be good for me.
