It is funny when people conflate fitness with being thin.
For fitness and overall health, obviously exercise is a necessity. It also helps for losing weight, though diet is clearly the more important factor.
If all you care about is being skinny, that's an easy goal to accomplish. A celebrit...

You can find nice hotels for decent price in the city itself, provided the timing doesn't coincide with some big event. Try the Metro Center / Chinatown area for a centrally-located spot with lots of hotel options. Farragut, Mcpherson, Dupont areas all work as well....

Meryl Streep - Deerhunter
It's a small role, but she almost created it out of nothing. Was a very small part in the screenplay and she made the character memorable. Was an amazing performance even if one of her smaller roles....

I know nothing about the T-Shirt or the group, but there is a reason the White House discourages photos and coverage of Obama's children.

Choctaw, can you give a general rundown of why you're still such an ardent Miles supporter given the recent trajectory of the program, the consistently putrid Offenses, and the history of poor game management?
Just curious. TIA....

Because, for better or worse, Miles is probably the most loyal coach in modern college football. Peveto has been with him for years and Miles loves that.
Unfortunately, IMO that loyalty is problematic with Peveto, as everything he touches turns to shite....
