Your Questions About Fitness

Paul asks…

I know I am unattractive, but I want to change it?

I really, really hate how I look. I am 6’3”, about 250 lbs, broad shouldered, and bald. I want to lose 100 lbs because I want to lose my broad shoulders and chest more than anything. I know I am never going to be really attractive since I am bald, but I figure at least I can minimize the thins that make me unattractive, i.e., my size. I cannot change my height, but maybe I can de-emphasize it.

I know I can stand to lose some weight, but that won’t fix what I really hate: my height and build. I know that some guys want to look big and uber-masculine, and some girls are actually attracted to that sort of thing, but I don’t care. I resent so-called compliments about my looks because they only serve to remind me that I’m not the only one who sees me as big. Last week in an elevator, some guy told me I looked like an offensive lineman. My ex-boss wife said I looked like I could be her bodyguard. I know they are trying to be nice, but hearing comments like that is, to my mindset, like telling a fat girl that she looks like she could eat a whole pizza in one sitting.

It’s pretty hard to get anyone to understand how I feel. A lot of people don’t feel guys should care how they look unless they are morbidly obese, and view a guy who hates masculine characteristics like height or a broad chest or shoulders to be an utter idiot. I have never really admired big or strong guys, not even as a kid. I never felt inadequate when I looked at Arnold Schwarzenegger or Hulk Hogan. I always saw them as a joke, a throwback to another era.

Baldness is another issue. Guys aren’t expected to care about it since a few celebrities are bald, but all the so-called sexy bald guys are real-man types like Vin Diesel or Michael Ciklis. It just serves to exacerbate the situation, to reinforce the big badass image I so want to avoid. Years ago, I spent many thousands of dollars on transplants, but they promised better results than I got. While I did get some hair on top of my head, it’s sparse and I still have a big bald spot in back, so I’m forced to just buzz it every week or two, which makes me look like a meathead.

Dating is another problem. My negative views regarding my looks have been reinforced by the fact that I have never been able to attract anyone I found interesting or good-looking. That’s not a stupid, knee-jerk “if she likes me, she can’t be worth anything” reaction…many times, I dated girls I was leery about in order to give them a fair chance, even going so far as to date several over six feet tall in an effort to de-emphasize my size. Every time, same story: the girl loved that I made her look tiny and told me she felt protected, which I found sort of ridiculous and childish. One even told me (in bed, yet) that I reminded her of her father.

My question is this…is it better to be true to yourself or to pretend you’re happy being something you hate? I have always taken pride in being a very honest person and to admit when I don’t like something about me, but being candid about my feelings only made people find my problems amusing or contemptuous. I hate the idea of having to pretend that I love being a big, bald guy, but obviously, being straight with people about how I feel doesn’t cut it, either.

Please dont tell me I look fine. I am not looking for reassurance and am well aware of my unattractiveness. Tall, bald, broad shouldered men are gross-looking unless youre casting an action movie. I dont want to “learn to love” being this way, only how to learn to deal with being alone.

ello – the problem is, I hate being seen as a big bald guy.
ethan – why do they see me as attractive? The reason is IMPORTANT.

The Expert answers:

Hello son
I have just read your question and I have looked at your photos.
Now I am not gay,
I am being honest with you like I would be with my own son or any other male relative or friend.
You are a good looking lad and to lose 100 lbs in weight will make you look anorexic and ill, I weigh roughly 150lbs and I am 5 ft 8 and I am only of slim build and just a few lbs over my weight.
And as for being bald loads of women find that incredibly sexy and every woman loves to feel safe and protected, and yes it is childish but it is also true, your problem is not with your bald head or your size or your weight its with your own self image, you have a false picture of yourself and have expectations far beyond your own image,
You need to speak with someone who is qualified to help you with this rather than spend money on hair replacement therapy.
I do apologise if I have offended you, that was not my intention.
But to advise you, and just one more thing before I go.
I have shown your question and photo to my sister aged 50 my Daughter aged 29 and my ward aged 18 and her friend aged 18 and they all tell me the same thing,
You are one good looking lad, and they just cant be wrong
good luck son and take care

The Expert answers:

Cute possum!

Ok- past the possum,… Ms Hutt is ADORABLE, very pretty tail…. ……………you have issues.
You seem to already know you have issues.
Cool. Fine.

You also seem to have posted:

“I don’t want to “learn to love” being this way, only how to learn to deal with being alone.”

So- what is the point of the posting? You want some addresses of monasteries? Going Celibate?

Yes- you are obviously frustrated. You say this in frustration. You want someone to give you a logical reason why you should not feel the way you do.- and point out a line of thought, while remaining honest about how horrible mangled and deformed you are.

(AH- wait! Not a monastery. A bell tower.. The bells! The bells! I should have seen your hunchback on the photos. Sorry)

Yes- I must be facetious, because even you know you are not as ugly as you let on.

You WANT to be this ugly, because you feel this ugly.. And one of your goals is to be honest with yourself, right?

If you are not as ugly as you feel- then you are lying to yourself. You don’t want to lie to yourself.. Therefore you ARE as ugly as you feel- and no dissenting opinion is allowed

Please check your in-brain BS meter. It’s flashing.

Perception is reality. Change your perception. Change reality. You already know how gray reality is- why is it impossible to use it to your advantage?

What is your goal? To be happy or perfect? The only reason someone would want to be perfect is because they think it would make them happy… so… the ultimate goal here is happiness… right?

I do understand how the physical body affects how people interact with you.
The goal is for people to love the “real you”.. But they won’t even try unless you are beautiful. Do what you can- and let what you can’t .. Go. There is no logical alternative… unless that alternative is to mope about things you can’t change.

You say you are dating women that you don’t feel right about… to “Give them a chance”.

Why? Your gut went through all that trouble warning you they were fruit-cakes. Why are you ignoring it?
So , you date 10 woman. 9 gut-warned ding-bats, and 1 actually normal woman. You actually have a nice date with the ‘normal’ woman.
What is your success rate? It’s not 10%. It’s 100%. You are screwing up your percentiles by dating woman who are obviously not for you… and at the some time convincing yourself you are undateable.

So, Stop that already. Stop digging in the cat-box looking for diamonds. You are only going to find turds.

If you wont read my question, dont respond.
I dont want to be seen as big or imposing. That means the same to me as unattractive.
Suki – Tall, bald, and broad shouldered is simply not attractive. The only way to make it attractive is to lose it.

I dont want to date a girl who has to settle for some big bald guy. I dont care if some girls like big guys…that just makes me feel twice as awful.
mary – well, i cant be attractive with my natural body type.

The Expert answers:

You don’t need major aesthetic changes so much as some self-confidence building exercisess. I know you’ll just disregard this anyway, but for the record I’m attracted to “imposing” men. So I think you look good.

I dont care what others like. I think being tall, broad shouldered, and bald is totally unattractive. I wouldnt want a girl who had to settle for someone like that.
nme – i dont want to look toned or muscular, just thin and smaller.

If some female called me a hot tall fit stud, I would feel terrible about myself.
name – i dont care what women find attractive. i dont care what the male ideal is. Most people have no taste.
L) Yes, being bald and big IS unattractive….I cannot think of a single big bald guy who is even remotely attractive.

The Expert answers:

Your question is too long, and it makes you seem self-obsessed. This is not attractive, and should be one of the first things you work on . The black and white picture is actually cute. The last picture is decent too. Being tall is always sexy. The picture with the gross looking animal is a definite turn-off, so get rid of that thing or hide it away until you meet someone who is willing to love you and whatever wierd pets you have.
Tall and broad-shouldered is hot! Where have you been? Guys are complaining about being too short!
You could get in better shape. Like more toned, more muscular. It looks like you have a bit of chub to you. You could be a really hot tall fit stud if you worked out a bit and watched what you are a little more, but don’t be a meathead, because those are gross, too.
You wanted honesty, here it is.
It’s really unattractive when guys obsess over their looks.
You know how guys want girls to be cute but not to act like they know they’re cute? Well girls want that too. We want a guy who isn’t into his looks, who doesn’t slouch, who’s confident and funny. I would take a guy with a confident and sweet attitude over a hot conceided ass anyday!

Also: You said that you don’t want a girl who would settle for a tall, broad shouldered guy??? Are you insane??? Do you know who dates tall broad shouldered guys?? Supermodels!
Yes, you do need to get in better shape, but tall and broad-shouldered is the male equivalent of a thin yet curvy for women. It’s exactly what women want in their men!

Chris asks…

What is the best paint respirator for a body shop ?

My husband is in the body shop business. I would like to get him a new respirator for xmas. I am not sure of the best kind to buy. I do know he dont like the full face. If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks

The Expert answers:

I used to paint in a body shop at one time and I found the only way to go is with a fresh air mask, as others still allow those harsh chemicals to go through them and that is not good for you.

These days you should be able to find one that is not a full face model.

Good luck.

Lisa asks…

How do i get different customers for my Body Shop At Home business?

Well i seem to have hit a road block in my Body Shop At home Business. All of my friends and family know and have ordered. I have it mentioned on Myspace and i have the website for people to order from me. It just isn’t happening for me yet!!! Any suggestions??
i am a consultant for the body shop at home. It is a spin-off of The Body Shop stores. We go to homes for “girl’s night out” parties and we sell products.

The Expert answers:

Perhaps if you made a video highlighting your Body Shop At Home business and made it very funny and placed it on YouTube, you might get some activity. Try Craigslist which is free and also perhaps start a blog and see if you can get activity that way.

Basically, you have to be patient. Advertising takes time to kick in.

William asks…

How much does an auto body shop owner make?

Investor of a auto body shop-how much money does he make a year?With paying salaries paying for details etc. how much money does he have at the end of the year to put in his pocket?

The Expert answers:

It depends entirely how busy the shop is. Also, to a large degree, what his clientele is. For instance, if he was doing top of the line restoration, the profits could be very high. If he was doing basic insurance repair, the opposite would be true.

Another major factor is how big the shop is. 2 employees? Or 30 employees?

There are too many variables to give you a real answer.

Donna asks…

How do i get into the sims 2 body shop?

I want to make clothing, i just found out about body shop and i want to figure out how to open up body shop.

The Expert answers:

Go here: Start/Programs/EA GAmes/[the name of your most recently released expansion- ie if you have Pets and Freetime you must use the Freetime version]/Bodyshop and open it from there.

If you have never opened it before or if you have lots of custom content it may take 5 minutes to do anything so be patient.

Richard asks…

I have so many pimples how do I get rid of them?

People keep coming up to me and saying oh you have so many pimples! i have tried every cream face mask and practically bought the whole body shop to find stuff that works.
None of it does. Also it is all in one place. I am really self conciouss and i used to only have a couple and now they keep getting more everyday! the location is in between my eyebrows? is there anything i can do to stop them?

The Expert answers:

Cutie Pie !
Below are presented a couple of things you need to do as a part of acne pimples home remedy treatment:

* Gently apply fresh limejuice on pimples and blackheads.
* Dab the mixture made by combining 1 tsp fresh coriander powder and a pinch of turmeric powder on the pimples, while going to bed in the night and wash it off when you wake up the next morning.
* Take a few fresh curry leaves and make a paste. Apply the paste on the acne-affected area and keep it overnight and wash it off with warm water the next morning.
* Apply the paste made of nutmeg (Jaiphal) and raw milk on acne and wash it off after 20 minutes. Do it for about 10-12 days and see the magical effects.
* Take some fresh fenugreek leaves and make a paste to apply on the acne pimples overnight.
* For people with oily skin, the perfect home remedy is to apply a paste made by mixing sandalwood and few drops of rosewater on the acne affected area for about an hour and then wash off gently.
* For dry skin, the best remedy is to take a piece of sandalwood and rub it on a smooth stone and make a paste using a few drops of raw milk. Apply the mixture on the acne and keep it for an hour and thereafter gently wash with water.

Laura asks…

Why don’t temp agencies give a more accurate description of assignments before they send folks out there?

There have been numerous times when the job was quite different that what the agency had described. Wasn’t my cup of tea at all. Seems like a shady practice. The latest example is that I was told I would be doing a filing job. Told me to dress business casual. Turns out that the agency sent me out to the wrong location. I wasted gas to find the right location and then when i got there it turned out that folks were filing in a 92 degree auto body shop garage? What the hell? Have you ever had a similar experience?

The Expert answers:

Temp agencies will screw you over in a heartbeat!

Daniel asks…

Auto accident, not reported. The guy is trying to make us pay him instead of the auto body place. What do I do?

Me and my boyfriend were in a car accident, his fault. He barely bumped the person ahead of him when we were going to turn. The one that was hit, Jeff said he would get a quote from an auto body to fix these two little scratches. Me and my boyfriend both agreed to pay to get the car fixed. Neither of us wanted to call the police or insurance because he was in a hurry and my boyfriend is insured but not to my car and driving because I was not feeling well at all. Jeff, the next day goes to the most expensive body repair shop and gets a $500.00 quote for a fender bender. We knew it did not cost that much and asked for some pictures to get a quote somewhere else. (Either way the car was going to get fixed.) Jeff refused to even take the pictures or let us get another quote, saying the only way to get it done is to have a check made out in his name, at a different location other than the store (speedway). We asked him if he minded us asking why we could not make the check out to the auto body place and get a recipt and he responded “Thats funny, i do mind you asking. You either make the check out to me for 250 or i call the po po and you make it out to knab for 500.” Is this blackmail and since the action of both parties was illegal can action be legally taken? There is no police report but he did take down our license plate number, my number, and my email. I do not even know his last name all I have is his car info like his vin # (on the quote paper that was emailed to us)

The Expert answers:

You have no right to dictate that he repair it at all, much less where. You owe him for the cost to repair the damages caused, and if he spends the money on vodka and party hats, that’s his business.
Report it to your insurance. They will happily cut him a check, and I bet it will be for more than $500!

WHAT MEDICAL TERMS ARE USED????????
PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE,,, CAN SOMEONE HELP ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Expert answers:

Plot summary

Kay Scarpetta is called in to assist in the investigation of the brutal murder of eleven-year-old Emily Steiner in rural North Carolina, whose murder is reminiscent of the handiwork of a serial killer who has eluded the FBI for years. Scarpetta is joined by her ingenious, rebellious and very annoying niece, Lucy, an FBI intern with a promising future in Quantico’s computer engineering facility. To help with the investigation, Scarpetta turns to a clandestine research facility in Tennessee known as the Body Farm. There she finds answers to Emily Steiner’s murder&mdash.
[edit] Characters in The Body Farm

* Kay Scarpetta – Chief Medical Examiner.
* Benton Wesley – FBI Profiler. He started having romantic relationships with Kay, despite being married.
* Lucy Farinelli – Kay’s niece. On internship at the FBI Academy, Quantico. Had a romantic lesbian relationship with Carrie Grethen. However, she was sabotaged, although she was subsequently cleared of any wrongdoing. Got into a car accident, under the influence of alcohol, in which Kay’s Mercedes-Benz E500 was wrecked. It was later revealed that she was ran off the road by Denesa Steiner.
* Pete Marino – Captain in the Richmond Police Department.
* Lieutenant Hershel Mote – Lieutenant in the Black Mountain Police Department. Was at Max Ferguson’s house, after finding Max dead, he had chest pains and dizziness, which will later on lead to a cardiac arrest.
* Dr. Thomas Katz – Forensic Scientist the Body Farm. He also was an expert in time of death, which he researched just as diligently with ways and means that were not commonly known to hoi polloi. His laboratory is called The Body Farm.
* Carrie Grethen – Lucy’s romantic interest at Quantico, however she was using Lucy’s identity to gain entry into classified areas, in order to avoid suspicion.

[edit] Victims

* Emily Steiner – 11 year old girl. Murdered in Black Mountain, North Carolina. Her body was nude. Upon close inspection by the Buncombe County medical examiner, it was determined she had been sexually assaulted, and had large dark shiny patches on her upper thighs, upper chest, and shoulder, which were areas of missing flesh. She also had been gagged and bound with blaze orange duct tape, her cause of death a single small-caliber gunshot wound to the back of the head.
* Max Ferguson – State Bureau of Investigation Agent. When Kay arrived, he was on his back, the size-D cups of a long-line black brassiere stuffed with socks that smelled faintly of musk. The pair of black nylon panties he had put on before he died had been pulled down around his hairy knees, and a condom still clung limply to his penis. He asphyxiated on a hangman’s noose, and was cut loose by Mote the moment he found him.
* Emily’s kitten, Socks – A stray kitten that Emily started feeding. She called her socks because she was pure black except for these perfect white paws. It died of a broken neck.

[edit] Other Deaths

* A 14 year old boy, in London – Modus operandi similar to Eddie Heath’s case in Cruel and Unusual. There were excised flesh on his body. Gunshot to the head, body displayed. He was not killed by Denesa Steiner, but his killer was not revealed in the later books.
* Denesa Steiner – Mother of Emily Steiner. Killer of Emily and Max Ferguson. She was killed by Kay after she barged into the room and saw Denesa sitting placidly on the edge of the bed where Marino lay, a plastic trash bag over his head and taped around his neck. She grabbed Marino’s pistol off the table and this prompted Kay to fire Marino’s Winchester rifle, which she got from his car, and subsequently killed her.

[edit] Major themes

* The hunt for the killer of 11-year-old Emily Steiner.

[edit] Allusions/references to actual history, geography and current science

* The story is set around Lake Tomahawk in Black Mountain, North Carolina.
* The original Body Farm is the University of Tennessee Forensic Anthropology Facility located a few miles south of Knoxville, Tennessee, behind the University of Tennessee Medical Center. The facility was founded by anthropologist Dr. William M. Bass in 1971, after he found that no such facilities existed that specifically studied decomposition.

[edit] Explanation of the novel’s title

The novel, and its title, were inspired by the University of Tennessee Anthropological Research Facility, which is used in the study of forensic anthropology, in particular human decomposition.

Laura asks…

How do you donate your body to a gross anatomy class when you die?

Hubby and I are writing wills and planning for the future… I want my entire body donated to science – I’ve thought about the Body Farm in Knoxville, TN, but I think I would rather have it go to a school for dissection – I know you’re thinking I’m totally weird, but I see a dead body as a useful tool and really, I don’t want to be just thrown in the ground when I could be helping.

The Expert answers:

Contact your local medical school. They have an entire office that handles such donations. Your body will be used for gross anatomy for about a year, so be sure that family understands that burying your body will be delayed.

Maria asks…

Has anyony received training at the Body Farm? What did you think?

The Expert answers:

Body Farm

A Body Farm is used in the study of forensic anthropology: the study of human decomposition that occurs after death. Various forensic disciplines benefit from the studies done through a Body Farm, among them law enforcement, medical examiners and crime scene investigation. The research assists examiners in developing a better understanding and developing better methods of determining what the actual time of death was. The Federal Bureau of Investigation holds training courses at the University of Tennessee Body Farm, in order to expose agents to crime scene simulations where they have to dig up bodies. There are two such facilities in the United States.

Facilities in the United States

University of Tennessee – Knoxville
The original “Body Farm” is the University of Tennessee Forensic Anthropology Facility located a few miles south of Knoxville, Tennessee, behind the University of Tennessee Medical Center. The facility was founded by anthropologist Dr. William M. Bass in 1971, after he found that no such facilities existed that specifically studied decomposition.

It consists of a six acre (12,140 m²) wooded plot, surrounded by a razor wire fence. A number of bodies, originating from various sources, are scattered throughout the area. Some of the cadavers have laid unclaimed at the medical examiner’s office, while over 300 people have voluntarily donated their bodies to the Body Farm. The bodies are exposed in a number of ways in order to provide insights into decomposition under varying conditions: some are left out in the open, some get buried in shallow graves or entombed in vaults, while some are even left in car trunks.

Western Carolina University
The other facility in the United States, very similar to the first, is located at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina and is part of the Western Carolina Human Identification Laboratory. It was opened in 2006 and is run by WCU’s Forensic Anthropology program on a few acres set aside on newly purchased land across from the rural mountain campus. The facility studies decomposition in the western North Carolina mountain habitat and is also used in cadaver dog training.
