Oh man guys. I just had christmas dinner, and I overate in a MAJOR sort of way (like 3 helpings of everything..ugh im gonna regret this when it shows up on my thighs!!) and now my stomach hurts like CRAZY and I want to throw up really bad but im terrified of it and its really not good for you to throw up anyway..so ive been chewing peppermint gum and sipping water..is there anything else that will help that awful kinda nauseating over-stuffed feeling?

Don't chew gum! Gum makes us swallow air which results in more bloating. I suggest sipping on mint (or peppermint) tea. If you don't have that, chamomile or green tea is good for digestion too. Walking helps. Have you tried Alka-Seltzer?
Hope you feel better soon....

Merry Christmas!

about your thighs: I was just reading an article on MSN the other day that says fat on your thighs is actually good. You know they have been saying for a while now that it's better to be a pear shape than an apple shape (fat below the waist rather than above it), but a new study has actually found that women with fat on their thighs not only have less heart problems than women with fat above the waist, but that leggy women have the same health levels as women who aren't overweight at all. So while thigh fat may be asthetically or culturally unpleasing, it's not bad for you at all, even if it makes you overweight. And, in fact, they found that women who lost their thigh fat had more health problems than women who kept theirs on. Something about thigh fat keeping the bad fats out of the bloodstream, or something like that. I'll have to see if I can find the article. Make all of us pear-shaped women feel better for the New Year.

There we go. Love your Godiva-chocolate, turkey-with-all-the-trimmings, rum cake, thighs!

Besides, the more padding you have on your backside, the easier it is to sit on the toilet for extended periods of time!
