    What does a behavioral activation group focus on? I've never heard of it. I hope it gets better!

    I made a lot of soup. My girlfriend is down with the flu so I've been cranking out as much soup as I can for the week. We have chicken noodle, chicken based Ramen, chicken lentil, spicy chicken pizole... seeing a pattern? It's been fun for me to try out new recipes, I even tried my hand at making homemade tortillas. In her current state not much is going down so I think I'll be eating soup for the foreseeable future.

    The high note of the week is I've been given the green light to start biking again by my doctor. I tore my achilles a month ago and have been banging around in a big boot (sooo much better than crutches!) since then. The weather has been tauntingly nice and I'm excited to join everyone else enjoying it.

    To me Wes Anderson movies are the perfect escape. You know precisely what your getting: the narrative is usually very formulaic, sets and costumes that are pleasing to the eye, and while sometimes dealing with heavy themes they still manage to come out feeling "light". I almost feel like it's an adult version of a picture book. I'm excited to, for only 2 hours, place my brain in a box, forget the current political and environmental landscape, and just be entertained.

    I'm somewhat confused about the article. I understand that it addresses the shitty behavior and service that overweight people get, and I agree that it is unfair and awful. But to say that we don't understand weight gain and weight loss? That diets don't work? It is calories in vs calories out. If you run a deficit you will lose weight. It might take a little while to show and might fluctuate with water weight, but 500 calories a day (3500 a week) below your maintenance will lose a pound a week. Discussing the mental dedication that it takes to stick to a regimen is one thing, it is tough. There should definitely be more education on healthy diet change as people cutting food to dangerous levels can have serious adverse effects. But I think the literature, support tools, and groups are all out there and easily accessible.

    I'm a little horrified his employer isn't being held accountable as well. This seems to be the executioner taking the sentence for the orders of the king. I feel like some punishment for James is apt, but if he was working under direct orders of his employer, which seems very likely, they should be facing much harsher penalties. Otherwise what is to stop them from hiring someone else and having them do the same thing as part of their duties.
