Hi. My coordinator was Eric @givemetheafd

My name is Kyle and I’m from California

@The Good Goy#1759 thanks for asking. I’ve got nearly the same build as you and started right around October as well.

I’ve been trying to eat as much protein as I can, but I was avoiding carbs somewhat, so I guess I’ll stop doing that.

I recently discovered that I might be lactose intolerant, so that has been fairly problematic.

Haha! Love the one right next to “Our Place”! Nice job @Valaska

Yeah, how come I didn’t get a badge 😂

@Deleted User I understand Body Fat calipers are better, but is one of those scales still useful?

Article won’t load for me 😩

I’m having trouble getting gains. How much should I be hoping for in a month? I seem to be stuck at 150 lbs no matter what I do

2018-02-22 21:02:58 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Not fat, just not really gaining weight.

2018-02-22 21:04:44 UTC [Fitness #general]  

@Nick-NJ I weigh 153 right now. I’m not following a program. I just have a set of adjustable dumbbells and a bench right now. I lift 3 times a week, rotating between muscle groups.

2018-02-22 22:14:53 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Ok. I am keeping track of my weight numbers, but I will look into a program.

2018-02-22 22:15:24 UTC [Fitness #general]  

I will also look into tracking my caloric intake.

2018-02-22 22:16:38 UTC [Fitness #general]  

I don’t have a barbell 😩

2018-02-22 22:17:18 UTC [Fitness #general]  

This is what I have for the moment.

2018-02-22 22:20:02 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Maybe I’ll get a barbell this summer, but for now I have to make do with what I got.

2018-02-23 06:01:25 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Ok, dumb question. Is there a right time of day to weigh yourself or does it only matter that you do the same time every day?

Hey goys, I'm new to crypto and looking to set up a BTC wallet. Any of you use Coinbase? If not, what do you recommend?

Ok, @ThisIsChris , thanks. I was a little confused when I read the pinned posts: “Do not trust any online wallet service”

But Coinbase looks pretty trustworthy and powerful

Thanks! I’ll go with Coinbase then!

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL you make a good point. I listen to a lot and it might not always be good... but Fash The Nation is amazing. You should consider listening to it.

@Deleted User I would also be interested in the job description when you have it. You’re in Pennsylvania, right?

I cannot tell if you are being serious @ThisIsChris

I simply don’t know enough about this stuff

Anyone heard of “Love & Logic”? I’ve heard a lot of good things about it for a few years, but my wife and I just got the book a couple months ago.

So far it’s lived up to most of the hype, but it’s still early and I gotta finish the book. 😅

Anyone here heard of It’s apparently an AI bot that will negotiate down your internet bill (among other things) for a cut of your savings. I just set it up and it appears like it will save me about $14/mo.

I can’t help but feel like Comcast and AskTrim are conspiring to raise the rates behind the scenes, though.

Not to mention it requires connecting your bank account and a credit card.

@Grossly Incandescent Sorry, were you talking to me? Yeah, I’ll try to summarize the methodology. It’s called “Love and Logic” but you could also call it “Empathy and Natural Consequences”, it’s just not as catchy. Basically, you make sure you administer all discipline with a healthy dose of empathy so you’re not the bad guy. And discipline should be natural consequences as much as possible.

Hey, has anyone here changed careers using a 'code bootcamp'? Or is anyone a front-end web developer? I want to get a new job as a web developer this summer.

Cool @VinceChaos. I've been doing that for a few years now, but wasn't really taking it seriously. Now I'm doing a code bootcamp. What courses are you doing? Codecademy? W3Schools?

Nice. I haven't heard of Odin Project, SoloLearn or Upskill! I'll check them out!

The bootcamp I'm doing rn is $200/mo. but it's self-paced. I'm hoping to finish it in 3 months and then start applying for jobs lol

Treehouse. They have what they call a "TechDegree" for front end web development.

There's also one for full-stack if that's your thing, or iOS, too, I think.

A friend of mine is a web developer and he says the projects in this program are representative of the real world, so I'm confident I'll get a job when I'm done

If you do, I can refer you for a discount, I think

Good to hear @ThisIsChris ! Do you know anyone that did Treehouse, specifically?

Ok. Yeah, Treehouse does that. And like I said, a friend of mine said he thinks it represents real world work.

I’m gonna be disappointed if the starting salary isn’t more than that here, though. That would actually be a pay cut for me 😂 and I’m a teacher

Looking at indeed and paysa, I’m hopeful.

Sorry, lotta questions to answer. In order:
1. "Here" is San Jose.
2. I fell into teaching and I'm not crazy about it. Also, I'm at a private school, which doesn't necessarily mean high salary (you'd assume that, but it's not always the case). Most importantly: no pension.
3. Yes, I'm interested in CS now. Hindsight being 20-20, I definitely got the wrong degree: Music Business/Technology. I just was never exposed to CS or didn't think I could do it.
4. A Masters in CS isn't really an option; schools won't consider a BA good enough.

@VinceChaos I've always been a little put-off by that site. That's the podcast you're referring to, right?

But I've never listened to her podcast. It's good, you say?

Ok @ThisIsChris . Hmm. Well, we'll see what happens. I teach web dev anyway, so this program isn't terribly expensive as a form of professional development.

Another thing to consider: In my current position my salary isn't likely to grow much, if at all. Meanwhile, the salaries as a web dev _start_ maybe a bit below what I make now and grow far above whatever I'll ever make in my current employment.
