  1. I agree with everyone's tips, they're great! What has specifically worked for me so far to lose a few pounds and maintain my weight is: - Cut down on breads, fat, sugar and any other thing that has wheat in it (wheat, even "whole" wheat is not good for our bodies because the plant has been genetically manipulated since the 1960's. Eating two slices of whole wheat bread is the same as eating two tablespoons of sugar. For more info see: http://www.huffingto..._b_1274872.html) - Eat more veggies, beans, fruits, nuts and seeds (the last three are great, nutritious snacks). - Always eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between (if you eat healthy snacks like granola, nuts, etc. you won't be so hungry during meals and you'll eat less). - As others have said, drink a lot of water instead of sodas and fruit juices from the supermarket (they're full of sugar and preservatives and don't have a lot of vitamins). - Reduce your intake of salt in meals because too much salt makes you retain water, which makes your body bloat, which makes you look and feel fatter - Select a day of the week (only one) where you can eat anything you want. This helps you satisfy any cravings you have of junk food and the calories don't really matter because it's only one day. As for exercising, in youtube there are tons of great videos that you can do in your own room without any equipment. First start out with a cardio routine that helps you burn calories and fat from your whole body and accelerates your heartbeat. Then do exercises that target each body part: upper body, lower body and abs. If you're interested in seeing these videos, I can give you - and anyone else who wants them - the links of the ones I already have.
  2. No, I have not met many people who are virgins at church. I would say that those who are still virgins are all under the age of 20. Only very few who are 20+ are virgins. I agree with what you said that it is not common in church anymore.
  3. Even though I prefer to marry a virgin above all else, I would consider marrying a widower if it has been a few years since his wife died and if he is not grieving anymore. Then again, I think it would still be complicated because you never forget or really move on from someone you loved who has died. So, I'm not completely closed to the possibility but I don't think I'd be too thrilled about it either. If I was a widow I don't know if I would remarry. In my experience, it isn't true that time eases the pain away (from the death of a loved one). What happens is that with time you begin to accept he/she is no longer here, but it still hurts. Maybe if many years have gone by I would consider remarrying.
  4. Me too. That was very funny My favorite ones: "I made an account just so I could comment and it will probably get buried. We have been married 7 months and we waited to have sex... And we are very adventurous and do it on average about twice a day (sometimes more, sometimes less) Our wedding night was perfect. We wanted each other so bad! There was no awkwardness, just pure sweet virginity taking". "My wife and I are Christians and both waited until marriage for intercourse, despite an occasional "third base" encounter here and there. I was 24 and she was 22. We've been married for 10 years now and it's awesome. She's open to pretty much anything. Initially I was a bit nervous (first time putting on a condom let alone having sex) but it got better for both of us. We've discussed many things and I've told her many fantasies which she's been excited to try. Long story short, it's awesome. We feel special to have this unique experience with each other. Additionally we have no bad experience to compare to, so it's never like "well she does this OK but not as good as my ex."
  5. Dressember

    Same as April here. I hadn't heard about this before but I think it's a great idea! Dresses are my favorite when it comes to clothing If I had known about this earlier I would definitely do it this year!
  6. The Question Game

    Two and a half. Spanish, English and Italian (learning). Which day of the week do you hate the most and why?
  7. The day I found this site I was talking to several people about waiting until marriage and they were saying that there are no guys left that are willing to wait. As I only have known 2 who did wait, I got curious so I googled "are there still guys who wait until marriage" and clicked on the first article that appeared. I started reading other articles here (which were very helpful and reinforced my decision to wait) and then I discovered the forums and decided to join. I was surprised to find that so many people (both girls and guys) are willing and striving to wait. You're all very encouraging to me
  8. I understand you completely! I always feel very bad when I have to break it off. I think it's best to be direct so that it's clear to him that you don't want to continue the relationship. If you just withdraw from him without an explanation or talk to him but don't get to the point, it'll feel like everything is hanging. He won't know where he is standing or what happened and there won't be any kind of closure. I agree with envincebal, the best (for both) is to be honest and to the point.
  9. Eloping?

    I wouldn't want to elope but I don't want to have a big, extravagant wedding either. I'd want a nice and simple wedding, without much stress. The important thing for me would be sharing my special day with my close family and friends.
  10. It seems that she’s feeling under a lot of pressure from school and she needs some time to clear her head. I know that when I’m feeling stressed out I don’t want to talk much or go out. I like to spend some time by myself relaxing and blowing off some steam. I think that your reaction to what she said was good, as you seemed very understanding of what she needed. I don’t think there’s anything to worry about, just give her some time and wait for her to contact you. I hope everything works out fine
  11. Are you...

    I'm a Christian.
  12. I think this is a great idea. I've been writing letters to my future husband since I was 16. Not only do they help me keep my focus while waiting, but they also help me process better what I'm thinking and feeling. I use pen and paper
  13. What is your career?

    I'm a teacher and I love it. I think I wanted to be one ever since I was little. I had other options in mind but this one was always my first choice. I chose it because I love working with children and because I'm able to invest in their lives and education and watch them learn daily. Besides, the major I have is very flexible so I will never get bored

  15. That's a beautiful song! I hadn't heard it before. This is mine:
  16. Dating an Older Guy

    I prefer older guys, but not that much older. I'd say up to 7 or 8 years apart, no more than that. I don't consider a 30 year old an "old" man.
  17. I agree with everyone else. That would have been very uncomfortable for me. Also, my father would never had made me promise to do something like that so this was never an issue for me, thank God. I think it's great that parents help, care and protect their children in that sense, but I don't agree that it has to go to this extreme.
  18. One Desired Talent

    I would love to be able to compose music and play many instruments. There's just something so beautiful in creating music! I would also like to draw
  19. Tim Tebow me too! And maybe Josh Groban.
  20. I have never heard of two waiters that got married and complained about not being compatible. Actually, I've heard the other way around. I think that view that society has is just complete nonsense.
  21. Great video! I like that she's really honest about her struggles. It has a beautiful message and it helped me remember that even though God has a universe to "run" and worry about, he still cares about all the details of our lives
  22. Hi from the D.R. :)

    @John Morgan: You should visit sometime. I think you would really like it. I may be biased, but we have some of the most beautiful beaches @Neen: Lol, that's cool!
  23. Hello everyone! I found this website yesterday and I'm so glad I did. I've read many of the articles here and they are very inspiring! It's encouraging to know that there are still many people that are WTM, even though that means going against the flow. I'm a Christian and I was taught that WTM was the right thing to do. But I guess that in order for you to succeed in anything, you need to have your own convictions. So, I thought about it and made my decision when I was in my teens. I wanted to do God's will and I also thought that it would be very sweet and special. It has not been easy, but I think that when something is difficult for you and you have to work hard for it, that's when you appreciate and cherish it the most (once you have it) as opposed to getting it easy. I guess this applies to anything in life, haha. It's great to have a community of people who understand you
  24. Hi from the D.R. :)

    Neen: That's great! The food is very yummy. Have you been here before? WanderingWashingtonian: It does feel like a cozy family here I love your signature! eugene: Haha! It's very nice, thank you! holdingtohope: Gracias! Me alegra encontrar otra persona que hable español también. envincebal, jess9450, Naturally, Gale, markb4, Kendra, Tev: Thank you for your responses! You have all made me feel very welcomed!
  25. I would love to go to Italy. Well, specifically Venice where all the gondolas are I love their language, the food, the scenery, everything! Although I would terribly miss my beaches
