this is the second attempt

Down 2 pounds this week!

Yep, that’s right, I called bullshit on my weigh in from yesterday and tried again today! 

I am now at my lowest weight from the first time I tried losing weight the healthy way back in 2013 when I met my fiancé! I studied abroad in Ireland for the first half of the year when I lost the 35ish pounds, but I gained it all back plus some to hit a new highest weight after I returned to my university in the US and had a particularly tough semester. 

My lowest weight from my second attempt in 2014/2016 was 168 (I think I saw that number almost exactly a year ago) and my goal is to get back there by May 8 when I start my new job 🤗🤗🤗

everyone loves this moment and I do to.  It’s perfectly delivered, perfectly set up and its a perfect conclusion to this whole jailbreak.  Lance gets his chance to shine and save the day.  So - can talk about the fact that - Shiro lets him.

I’ve already talked about how, if shit suddenly hits the fan, Shiro’s first response is action.  Someone else talked in their post about how he tends to leap in ahead of the others, even when one of the others might be more suited, simply because he has a meat-shield complex.  This is a split second moment.  They’ve got a chance for one attempt and one alone and if it fails, they’re going to have to go back in and do this the very, very hard way.  Shiro sees what’s happening.  He has a jet pack.  He’s capable of reacting and throwing himself into things and its his nature to.  But.

But Lance says he’s got this - and Shiro stays put.  Let’s talk about the level of trust in Lance, the level of faith in Lance’s competency, the fact that Shiro listens to Lance and accepts his assessment that this moment holds.  They’ve got one chance to do this right - and Shiro trusts Lance enough to let him take that chance.  He does it without a seconds hesitation.  He doesn’t say ‘are you sure?’, he doesn’t head back in in case Lance misses.  He stays put and let’s Lance do his thing, no backup plan or safety net in place.  No matter how Lance may see himself, Shiro very obviously proves here that he sees Lance as a competent and important part of the team and trusts him and his judgement in a time of crisis without hesitation.  Can we please put to rest the fanon interpretation that Shiro ignores or belittles Lance’s place as a member of Team Voltron.  Shiro listened to Lances judgement call and trusted him to make it.

The sad thing about watching Melania around Donald Trump? She can’t even attempt to fake it anymore.

The second he turned around from her at inauguration and her face just fell into a grim little frown. And she looked so, well, disgusted, by him.

I am still creeped out by it.  That look she gave him was not one of love. It was not anything close to love.

Christ. She resents him as much as everyone else does, doesn’t she? 

One of the most bizarre, saddest, tragic things I think I’ve ever seen on TV.

i really love the magic light bulb that dirk & todd had to use in spring’s ‘death maze’; it’s a shame that they lost it when the screen room was blowing up, i was hoping that it would make more appearances in future episodes– i can see it coming in handy
