Shaving and waxing, rash in the "rear dep." Warning TMI!

Hey there! First I’m sorry this is going to be long, but the here’s the story.. I compete in Bikini and while it may seem kind of glamorous from the outside, it definitely has some "not-so-glamourous-issues" related, one which I think is butt crack hair removal. You may either laugh or gross...

Can I date a hot fit guy while I'm still fat ?

I'm 255 lb at 5 feet 6 inches tall. I'm a fat girl. I have always been attracted to fit muscular men but I am insecure because of how I look. It will take me a long time to lose the weight. Do I have to wait until I am thin because I can get with a fit man ?

How do you cope with PMS and training? I have about 10 days in my cycle where I either just want to cry and/or I'm so annoyed at such little things and I notice my motivation drops to "i'll do it tomorrow" level. Really messes with my training (and life!) Interested to hear about any vitamins...
