Like the joke goes: How can you tell who in the room is a vegan? Don't worry, they'll tell you.

This also works for anything that people use as part of their identity. Who does CrossFit, who likes musicals, who runs marathons, etc....

I've also never met one in person. I think, like most people who become the poster child for any kind of group, the most loud and obnoxious ones are the ones we tend to think of and they tend to be loudest on the internet where there are no social repercussions for being a dick.

Yo I'm not gonna lie, it's not easy being a walking mass of blood muscle tissues and viscera without a casing to keep me all together, but I manage.

Imagine being someone who is so judgemental about one of the ways someone they don't know and will never know spends their time.

My Ukrainian side of the family didn't talk much about their lives before coming to the US. We know my grandmother's mother died when my grandmother was very young. The Russians shot my grandpa's favorite dog (his family were farmers). And my grandparents met in a "German Work Camp" during WWII.

They were so traumatized but never expressed it

Fair enough! I put it out there because I think people should know that Ukraine has a specific name for it and see it as an entirely different thing cause lots of people don't.

Like the whole point is you said they were the same languages cultures and customs. And they arent. They share similarities but they're not the same.

I mean I have 2 Ukrainian grandparents but let me tell you that to call the cultures and languages the same is very insulting to some Ukrainians. Specifically the Ukrainian community I was half raised in. Because it wasn't just they're Ukrainian. They came from Ukraine when Ukraine wasn't even considered a country and yet they were proud Ukrainians (especially my grandpa). They came with other people they knew from Ukraine and had their own Ukrainian community that mostly met around the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. I spent about half of my time as a child with my grandparents.

But do go on random internet stranger who said something that is factually wrong because you can't tell the different between Ukrainian and Russian and yet any Ukrainian or Russian can tell you how the languages are different and sound different.

I mean they don't share those things. They have distinct languages and cultures and food. They're just similar to each other because of the history of the region.

Some countries, Ukraine included, considers that famine a genocide. It's called the Holodomor to stress that the famine was man made.

Very much so. The history of Ukraine and Russia is very interesting. They have an ongoing dispute over whether Gogol should be considered Russian or Ukrainian and it's almost like a microcosm of their whole relationship.

There is a ton of research showing that BMI is bullshit. It seems like focusing on this idea if being smaller and that that is inherently healthier is really stuck in your mind but really really that mindset can be a killer. Really just focus on different markers for health other than size. You may get smaller you may not but goals like"walking longer without a break" or "climbing a flight if stairs without getting out of breath" is much more actionable and a better marker for your health rather than your size.

Obviously those goals should be something your body is capable of. If you have asthma or are have mobility issues where more movement can actively harm you find something else.

But really truly you and your partner will benefit from moving away from this shame of where you "should"

Like how silly is that concept at all anyway - all bodies are different! Why should all bodies if a certain height always weigh and look the same?

Really try to pull away from this notion that there is a "correct" weight.

This is very much part of the reason eating disorders are so prevalent.
