How to make sex less awkward after losing weight
The first rule of life is to learn to live with it.
The second is to not be surprised by it.
That’s how the popular blog Screentime put its title on its “How to Lose Weight” series.
The idea was simple: How can you live with a loss of weight without being embarrassed or frustrated?
And it worked.
The blog, which had 5 million readers, had some fun with its title, and the topic of losing weight is no exception.
Screetime’s goal was to provide a platform for readers to learn about and talk about how to lose weight and how to make it less uncomfortable.
“People get really angry when they lose weight,” Screetime’s owner, Lisa, told The Huffington the blog’s title.
“They don’t know how to cope.”
So she created a series of posts on how to shed pounds, and each post was a guide for the person on the receiving end.
The first installment featured an inspiring quote from a friend who had recently lost weight.
“Don’t be ashamed to be your own worst critic.
It’s your body’s way of protecting you from the rest of the world,” she wrote.
In the second installment, Lisa said, “Don’t give up on yourself.”
She encouraged readers to “learn to be happy and confident” and to “look to your friends and family for guidance.”
She added that the posts weren’t meant to be offensive.
“We’ve done it this way for a long time,” Lisa told The New York Times.
“It’s not the kind of advice you would get from someone who’s just lost weight, or from someone just lost their confidence.
It might be the opposite, or it might be a more positive message.”
Screentimes founder Lisa McFarland has been writing and blogging about weight loss since 2008.
Lisa said she started with her own blog and then added it to Screepost, a social network for women that has a similar focus.
“For years, we’ve been trying to figure out how to communicate this message to women who are struggling with weight loss,” Lisa said.
“When we started Screenterime, I thought we could help.”
The site’s motto is simple: “It doesn’t have to be hard to lose.”
And it has.
A number of women have told The Times they found the site helpful in finding advice and resources.
For example, in 2014, a woman from the Philippines who lost 15 pounds in six months, was approached by Screence about helping her get her life back on track.
Screeentime had a way for the woman to reach out to her friend, who was struggling with the same issue.
“It was really helpful,” she told The Washington Post.
“Because we were able to connect with each other, I felt more connected with the person who was really struggling with it, and it helped me feel more confident in my own weight loss journey.”
Lisa said the site’s goal is to help women feel confident in their weight loss efforts.
“What we do is we teach people that it’s okay to do it,” she said.
