Protein shake and scrambled eggs for breakfast

2023.05.30 14:22 GirlG0ne Protein shake and scrambled eggs for breakfast

Hi! I’m just starting on my weight loss journey (I’m female, 5’6, 168 lbs hoping to lose 20-30 lbs). I started seeing a nutritionist and she said I need more protein which I’ve heard before from my doctor. I work out 4-6x a week at a boxing studio in the morning so my nutritionist recommended a high protein breakfast right after. Is it too much to have 2 scrambled eggs plus a protein shake (premier protein chocolate flavor) for breakfast? I did it the other day and noticed I was full much longer but I’m nervous it’s too much and will prevent me from losing. What do you guys think?

2023.05.30 14:17 ahww-biscuits Seeking Adult Sports Leagues for someone who is trying to get off the couch this summer.

I love being competitive and I'd really like to channel that energy into some more effective weight loss and meet some new friends. I've always enjoyed sports but I've never participated as a part of a team or league. I'd love to get involved this summer.
I live up on the north side of town closer to Huntertown and am just having trouble figuring out where to get started. Everything seems like an event I should have at least played in college before I tried out or is just pick-up games at the park. Was hoping for something in-between.
Thanks in advance for any leads!

2023.05.30 14:09 Internal-Display9057 Weight Loss in Pregnancy

So i have had no appetite, and a constant fullness in my stomach, since 5 weeks, and then later I developed a stomach flu thing as well, so I kept pooing everything out, But the morning sickness has been debilitating! I ended up losing 12lbs.
Has anyone else struggled to keep their weight up or maintain weight in pregnancy? It’s like constant dizziness and my stomach growling and nausea and weight loss…

2023.05.30 14:08 dadacus1 99.9kg (220lb), 27F, 5’7” struggling with weight loss

Hi, everyone! As the title says, I’m a 27 year old female weighing in at 99.9kg (220lb) and am 5’7”. I used to be so thin in high school — granted, I was on a sports team and was so much younger and active then. Since I graduated and attended college, my weight has skyrocketed. I am diagnosed with generalized anxiety and depression, and I took birth control (Tri Estarylla) for almost 10 years (along with Prozac 30mg for about 5 years). I hate my body and there is absolutely nothing I love about myself anymore. To add to the stress, I am married to a Korean man and if you know about the beauty (and weight) culture in Korea, you know that it’s intense. I want to have a baby and move to Korea in the future, but I can’t do those things if my body is the way it is now.
Currently, I have overall* been eating less and have been working out every 3 days with 1 rest day in between. When I say “overall,” I mean that I don’t manually count calories or weigh out food - I just try to manage my portions. When working out, I have begun strength training in combination with at least 15-30 minutes of cardio. I’m not seeing any changes whatsoever, and it is so discouraging. My husband is very encouraging - he says that he’s proud of me always and he acknowledges that I am trying to make some changes. But, it doesn’t mean anything to me if I myself am not proud or seeing progress.
I likely am experiencing a downfall of eating more calories than I think. I always find myself thinking about food. When I eat, I often think of what I’m going to have next. It is so annoying.
Does anyone have the same metrics/similar story that I have and would be willing to share success stories (both large and small successes)? Just looking for some people in my corner :(
Thanks for reading!
Edited to add: I have since stopped taking birth control and Prozac as of about 2-3 months.

2023.05.30 14:07 Ana_Reddit_me Cyproterone always makes me lose weight

when I do monotherapy with E2, I gain weight, something around ten kilos, but when I add cyproterone: I lose weight. Is there any association of cyproterone with weight loss?

2023.05.30 14:04 Nearby_Count Help

I recently realised I wasn't eating enough (between 500 and 800 calories a day, Im not good at knowing when im hungry or when to eat but i always have the same food for lunch and dinner and after realising i had stopped loosing weight it occurred to me that the set meals i have dont have many calories) and it was probably what was causing the plateau in my weightloss (2 weeks with no loss, although I have almost gained a pound) I'm trying to eat 1,200 a day now (but it's making feel sick trying to eat so much) and have increased my exercise, is this all I need to do to get back on track? I really need some reassureance, I'm worried I've messed up my metabolism. (I'm 5'10 and 155lbs for reference, i usually walk 10,000 steps a day and do more intense workouts on the weekend but im adding more gym days to the week)

2023.05.30 14:02 Frosty-Spare-6018 The way people treat you after losing weight..?

Has anyone else (especially women) notice that after getting very close to your goal weight/finally reaching the healthy bmi range some of the people closest to you don’t compliment you although they used to and you regularly compliment them? Or have any of you lost female friends/they just stop speaking to you regularly or engaging with you online? It’s like the better I look the people who used to be close to me and compliment me on things just don’t anymore. This particularly stopped once I got to a healthy bmi although the only proof of this is how i actually look since I don’t share my weight loss journey etc online or with people I just do it. People do see me eating healthy meals and working out a lot.
F24 5’3 CW: 140~ Original starting weight in HS: 207
Fluctuated between 180-160 since I started seriously losing in 2017 and lowest ever until the past 8ish months was 151~
Now I’m finally at a healthy bmi but still have body fat and more to lose.

2023.05.30 14:01 Lost4eversleeping In need of guidance and some experience-based info

Hi all, I hope you guys are doing great! I m 27F, weigh 220 pounds (100.5 kgs), and am 5'4. I took my first oral dose of Rybelsus 3mg and as I have come across a lot of information and progress pics I have some questions as I go ahead with my weight loss journey. here are the questions:-
  1. I have noticed an average of 10-20 pounds of weight loss in a 3-4 month time period among people who have started with ozempic/rybelsus/wegocy. Did you guys work out??? what kind of workout did you do cardio or strength training? Was working out difficult with the side effects of nausea etc?
  2. How did your relationship with food change? do you still prefer junk food or desserts over healthy protein, fats and fibre?
  3. Was it a lazy weight loss? or did you require patience and willpower to control yourself getting back into old habits?

It's been a while since I was able to admire the result of my persistency. The pinnacle of weight loss, the thing we all dream of, the six pack.
I have achieved this feat before, and it was such a boost. No matter how bad the day, I still had my six pack when I went to sleep. Being able to look down and know that I put in enough effort to achieve something most people will never have in their lifetime, it's something.
If you have ever wanted a sixpack, I recommend you to spend this month putting in the hard work and diet necessary. Let me know if you need an accountability partner and ill be sure to help you out

2023.05.30 13:48 ResearchChemHQ The Comparative Efficacy of Semaglutide and Tirzepatide for Weight Loss SWISS CHEMS COUPON CODE

https://swisschems.is/product/semaglutide-3mg-1-vial/ code CHEMSEX10
https://swisschems.is/product/tirzepatide-glp-1-analogue-5-mg-1-vial/ same code
Hello swisschems community!
Today, I'd like to dive into a topic that has been generating quite a buzz in the weight loss and pharmaceutical spheres: the potential benefits of Semaglutide and Tirzepatide for weight management. Both these drugs are glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists used in treating type 2 diabetes, but they have also shown promising effects on weight loss. Let's delve deeper and examine how these two compounds stack up against each other.
Semaglutide, sold under the brand name Ozempic, was primarily designed to manage type 2 diabetes. However, the STEP (Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People with Obesity) trials demonstrated its impressive weight loss benefits, too.
Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1, a hormone that enhances insulin secretion and suppresses glucagon secretion, leading to reduced appetite and calorie intake. In the STEP trials, participants who received semaglutide experienced substantial weight loss, with an average reduction of 15% in body weight over a period of 68 weeks.
Tirzepatide, on the other hand, is a dual GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonist. GIP is another incretin hormone, like GLP-1, involved in glucose homeostasis and fat metabolism. Tirzepatide has demonstrated robust HbA1c reduction and weight loss in phase 2 trials for patients with type 2 diabetes.
Like semaglutide, tirzepatide affects appetite and calorie intake, but the dual action of tirzepatide might potentially offer additional benefits. In the SURPASS trials, participants receiving tirzepatide showed weight loss of approximately 10-15% over a span of 40 weeks, although the outcomes varied depending on the dose administered.
Semaglutide vs. Tirzepatide: Which is better for weight loss?
The verdict isn't entirely clear as of now. Both compounds have demonstrated significant potential in promoting weight loss. While semaglutide has shown impressive results in the STEP trials, tirzepatide's dual action in the SURPASS trials also makes it a compelling contender. It's also worth noting that while both drugs act as GLP-1 agonists, they differ in structure and functionality, which might lead to differences in their effect on weight loss.
In conclusion, both semaglutide and tirzepatide appear to have significant potential in the field of weight management. However, more comprehensive and direct comparative studies are needed to determine which one is the superior option for weight loss. As always, it's essential to remember that any weight loss regimen should be accompanied by a healthy diet and regular exercise. And, of course, any new treatment should only be initiated under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
Stay tuned for more updates on these exciting developments, and keep the discussion going in the comments below!

Determine whether you need straight lengths or require bends, fittings, or connectors to navigate through the project site. Ensure that the chosen pipe size can be accommodated within the available space without hindering the overall functionality of the system.
Standards and Regulations: Comply with industry standards and regulations governing pipe sizing for specific applications. Different industries and regions may have specific guidelines regarding pipe size selection. Familiarize yourself with relevant codes and standards to ensure compliance and to guarantee the safety and efficiency of your project.
Cost Considerations: Evaluate the cost implications associated with different pipe sizes. Larger-diameter pipes with thicker walls tend to be more expensive than smaller ones. Consider the balance between cost and performance to ensure that you select a pipe size that meets your project requirements while optimizing your budget.📷
Consultation and Expert Advice: If you are uncertain about the appropriate pipe size for your project, it is advisable to consult with experienced engineers, contractors, or MS pipe dealers. They can provide valuable insights and help you make an informed decision based on the specific needs and constraints of your project.
Final Thoughts:
Mild steel (MS) pipes have become indispensable in numerous industrial applications due to their versatility, reliability, and cost-effectiveness.

2023.05.30 13:40 osbeondhos Pseudo or gyno? + how to get rid of pseudo + puffy nipples

Went to the doctor today, he physically examined me but said there is no gland and it’s fat and pseudo, but if it’s only pseudo, what are treatment options that are non surgical, and for puffy nipples too even if by 20% It looks great when my chest is hard but when like that it looks pointy. I heard coolsculpting and kybella works in reducing but I’m not sure, what do you think. I also have to add that it might be to me losing 20kgs in my weight loss journey, current bf is 20% almost, and still going for the last bit to remove, but I’m still somewhat convinced it’s gyno although doctor said it wasn’t.

2023.05.30 13:31 bnny_ears How do you calculate your calorie limit?

Please help, I'm m confused. I tried Calorie-Calculator.net, which told me I can eat 1600 kcal for moderate to quick weight loss. I use lifesum for tracking, which tells me that less than 1690 kcal are not recommended.
After a few days of tracking, 1600 kcal fit too easily into my existing habits. So I checked Mayo Clinic.org and they said 1600 kcal are my maintenance intake, so 1200 for weight loss...?
Freedieting.com says for weightloss max. 1450 kcals.
I'm not sure how to proceed or what to believe.
I'm 5'4 at 176 lbs.

2023.05.30 13:05 vpyr [Rise of the elven sage] - Chapter 25

Chapter 1 Previous Chapter
Emerging from an abyss of nothingness, the white oval stone materialized before Raphael, its surface resembling the intricate patterns of marble adorned with delicate veins of blue. A soft azure glow emanated from within, casting an ethereal light that captivated his gaze. It hovered there, suspended in the air, as if it had always been present, yet remained hidden from his sight until this very moment. Confusion washed over him as he questioned his own perception. Had he not been holding this very stone in his grasp all along? Yet, his hands now lay empty, devoid of the tangible presence he had come to expect. Raphael's senses were overwhelmed by the surreal spectacle unfolding before him. A profound sense of bewilderment enveloped his being, leaving him at a loss to comprehend the depths of this vivid experience. It felt as though an otherworldly force had interwoven every ounce of meaning into this enigmatic display. Cracks, like delicate fractures, traced the veins of the stone, amplifying the luminosity of its azure glow. The room, shrouded in darkness, revealed itself to be a somber sphere of obsidian, adorned with cryptic symbols etched into its very walls. Patterns and drawings emerged, etching themselves in crimson hues akin to freshly spilled blood, flowing and intertwining with every nook and cranny. As these lines of crimson drew closer to the levitating stone, their hue transformed into a chilling shade of purple, growing colder with each passing moment. Amidst this transformative spectacle, the flame at the heart of it all remained unwavering, a commanding presence that demanded acknowledgment. Azure light spilled forth from the stone, illuminating the room with an eerie radiance. It felt as though an unseen battle raged between the flame and the stone in a realm hidden from Raphael's understanding, each vying for his attention. Confusion, fear, and a profound sense of helplessness enveloped him, leaving him stripped of any agency. He was compelled, forced to bear witness to the enigmatic drama unfolding before his eyes, a spectator to forces beyond his control.
Let me out
The resonating voice echoed through Raphael's being, penetrating his consciousness with a demanding insistence. It was the very same voice, reminiscent of playful innocence, that had issued a warning just now or millennia before as time has lost its meaning to him. Now, it beseeched him, imploring him to unleash its essence. A conundrum unfolded before him, casting a shadow of uncertainty upon his thoughts. The stakes felt impossibly high, evading his grasp of comprehension. Caught in a paradoxical state of immobilization and searing intensity, he grappled with the conflicting sensations enveloping him. The light emanating from the levitating stone possessed an icy chill, a stark contrast to the scorching heat of the flame. Raphael stood suspended between conflicting forces, his very being locked in a state of paralysis. Yet, an unmistakable sense of urgency gnawed at him, demanding a choice, a resolution. The weight of importance bore down upon him, yet the fear of the unknown held him in its vice-like grip. Beads of cold sweat mingled with the heat coursing down his spine, a testament to the fear that gripped his heart, both for the present moment and the uncertain future that lay ahead.
“Why?”, was all that Raphael could ask as his lips felt unnaturally heavy as if hundreds of tons weighed down on him.
To save you. To save us., the childish voice answered. You have to act now. Give me your blessing!
Raphael pondered the mysterious voice that resonated within him, he sensed no malice or harmful intent. However, the source's true purpose remained elusive, leaving him in a state of uncertainty. The question of from what it sought to protect them lingered in his mind, unanswered. In an abrupt twist of fate, another transformation unfolded before him. The till now unphased towering flame surged higher than ever before, its fierce heat intensifying to an unbearable degree, searing his very essence. Simultaneously, the once vibrant azure glow began to wane, gradually fading into oblivion. The room, once adorned with enigmatic symbols and intricate patterns, plunged into eternal darkness, obscuring everything from view. The walls, now shrouded in shadow, concealed their secrets from prying eyes again.
QUICK, the voice screamed urgently.
Caught in a state of uncertainty, Raphael found himself at a crossroads, unsure of how to proceed. Yet, an undeniable desire welled up within him, compelling him to embrace the enigmatic scene unfolding before his eyes. With trepidation in his heart, he mustered the courage to yield to the voice, desperately hoping it was the right choice. In an instant, the dwindling azure glow surged back to life, obliterating everything in its wake. All that remained was a blinding, searing brilliance of cold, icy blue. The once prominent flame now struggled within this luminous onslaught, fighting to preserve its flickering existence. As the flame diminished, suffocating in the midst of this powerful light, a primal fear gripped Raphael's being not knowing what would be unleashed by this radiance of light. Cracks in the stone grew wider, pouring forth even more luminosity. Amidst the overwhelming azure flood, Raphael's eyes strained to discern a shape emerging—a stone arch where the flame once stood.
For now, I will lend you my power. Come meet me, when you are ready, the playful voice said as everything turned white.
With beads of sweat glistening on his brow and his breath labored, Raphael jolted awake in the damp prison he and Greg were held against their will, enveloped in a veil of fear. His hand, once cradling the stone against his heart, now lay empty, leaving him with an unsettling emptiness.

2023.05.30 13:04 DullKnifey Calories tracking apps are NOT ACCURATE or am I destroying my metabolism

I've been tracking calories for 3 weeks, but dieting on an "intuitive eating" manner for 3 weeks prior (a total of 6 weeks then) and so far so good!
So far 4,5-5 kilos / 8-9 lb down (for reference I'm a woman, 23yo, 154cm/5foot and I was at 80kg/176lb)
I lost weight when I was about 15-16 but since university and covid happened I gained it again, and I am decided to get back in shape so I can ride horses again
I'm happy, I feel like I eat a lot more than I used to, I'm almost never hungry (the few days I got ravenous I got my period after and I was like "oh of course") I feel energised I am doing great at training, and most importantly I feel this is something sustainable and that I enjoy, compared to when I went to a dietician
What I am doing is prepare the same food I'd make but weight and log everything, religiously (and I mean religiously because I am taking this with the most scientific approach I can), including oils
The app says I am logging about 700-800 calories most days (some are 1000 but that'd be like 1-2 days out of a week) but it says I am supposed to be eating around 1445 calories for weight loss but whenever I've eaten that much I didn't lose or even gained a bit.
I suspect the app isn't accurate (I am using Fitia)
I know all tracking has a 20% error
- adding that to an average of 800 calories would be close to 960 calories
-the same would happen if I consumed 1445cal (as the app said) and it'd be around 1700cal, thus being a maintenance amount more than a weight loss.
Am I wrong? or are apps inaccurate and the amount of calories (regarding what the app says) I am averaging is okay for my goals?
Am I screwing my metabolism? Can I really have destroyed my metabolism so bad in 6 weeks?

Thanks everyone and good luck on your health journey x :)

The court also heard an update on efforts to get emails and any other records from a computer used by Michael's former manager, Frank Dileo. Apparently an LA attorney has a copy of Dileo's computer hard drive. Attorneys are working to get a copy of the HD to both sides. The copy was revealed during a deposition of Dileo's widow earlier this week in Pennsylvania, plaintiff's attorney Brian Panish said
Paul Gongaware Testimony
Jackson direct
Gongaware said he met with his attorneys again yesterday to refresh his recollection
Panish asked if AEG was concerned about Mr. Jackson's health. "When he was sick we obviously had a concern," Gongaware responded. Gongaware said he understood Michael was sick from reading the chain of emails shown yesterday. But Gongaware told the jury he didn't have any particular concern about Michael Jackson other than on June 19th, no one told Gongaware about being concerned with his health. Gongaware testified that he disagreed with Houghdahl's opinion, saying he had no "particular concern" about Jackson's health and ability to perform
Talking about the email Hougdahl sent saying Michael was deteriorating quickly, Gongaware explained: "I didn't see it the way he saw."
Hougdahl, in response to concerns expressed by Travis Payne about Jackson's weight Email 6/15/09 from Hougdahl to Gongaware :
He needs some cheeseburgers with a bunch of Wisconsin cheesehead bowlers and a couple of brats and beers
"Was he joking around about this situation?" Panish asked Gongaware, referring to Hougdahl. "I think he was," Gongaware replied. "Did you think that was funny?" Panish asked. "I did," Gongaware admitted
Panish asked about indemnity in Gongaware's contract. The exec said indemnity means that someone else is taking on the responsibility. "I haven't read my contract in 12/13 years, I don't know what it says," Gongaware said. Gongaware said he does not know how many pages his employment agreement is. Panish asked if he AEG would cover for Gongaware should they be found guilty. Gongaware said it was his understanding that he wouldn't be personally responsible financially if the jury sided with Jackson family.
Panish: "That means if you did something wrong..."
Gongaware: "They would be responsible. I've been assuming that,"
Adding that depending upon the size of the judgment, AEG could go after him. Panish asked how much AEG would be able to afford, and Gongaware said he didn't know. Panish emphasized there are various ways for AEG to pay a judgment, and Gongaware mentioned they had some sort of cancellation insurance.
Panish went back to discuss the email from Randy Phillips where he wrote 'Dr. Murray didn't need the gig and was unbiased and ethical'
Panish: "Is Mr. Phillips unbiased and ethical, sir?"
Gongaware: "I think he is"
Panish asked if it was ethical for Phillips to represent to Ortega that the doctor is 'extremely successful' and 'we checked everyone out'. Gongaware responded that he didn't know what Phillips knew at the time.
Panish: "Is number one priority 'the show must go on'?"
Gongaware: "I don't know if that's number one"
Panish: "What's number one?"
Gongaware: "Getting it right"
Panish showed the email from John Branca, saying he had the right therapist for Michael and asked if substance abuse was involved. "This is referring to the meeting that was going to happen and I was waiting to see the results of it," Gongaware said. "I didn't believe there was a substance abuse issue," Gongaware testified. "In the entire time I was dealing with him in this tour, I saw it once when he came back from his doctor," Gongaware testified. Gongaware said that was the only time he saw Michael with slurred speech and under the influence of something. Gongaware said he didn't know what Dr. Klein was giving Michael Jackson. When Panish asked Gongaware if he checked Dr. Klein out, he replied: "No, he was Michael's doctor and it was none of my business."
Gongaware said he once observed Michael looking "slow" and possibly intoxicated after a visit to his dermatologist but he didn't believe he had any "serious health problems" even after Jackson appeared weak and disoriented at a June 19 rehearsal. "My observation of Michael Jackson was that he was healthy," Gongaware said. "They had a meeting to discuss (the June 19 incident), and he took a couple days off and he came back strong"
As to insurance issues, Gongaware said he was involved only peripherally. On June 25, Gongaware sent an email saying that if they didn't get sickness coverage in the insurance, they would be dropping the policy. Gongaware said he didn't know why he was pressing for sickness insurance on the day Michael died. Bob Taylor, the insurance broker, wrote back that it was always down to the medical issued from the word go. Regarding Randy Phillips asking for life insurance the day Michael died, Gongaware said he didn't pay much attention to insurance, didn't recall.
The day Michael died, Gongaware said Phillips called him and told him to get over to the house right away, there seems to be a problem. Randy followed the ambulance to UCLA. "The second call was that he informed me that he had died," Gongaware remembered. On June 25, Gongaware said he went to the rehearsal at the Staples Center and talked to Kenny Ortega.
Panish: "Were you sad Mr. Jackson died?"
Gongaware: "Very much so"
"He was a business associate", Gongaware said about Michael. They did not didn't hang out as friends
Panish asked about Phillips' email directing Gongaware to remove thin, skeletal footage of Michael in the red jacket from This Is It documentary. Gongaware testified that he remembered receiving the email. In his deposition played in court, Gongaware said he didn't recall the email.
Panish: "Did you change your testimony?"
Gongaware: "No. I saw the email as part of my preparation"
AEG Live president and co-chief executive Randy Phillips wrote in Aug. 9 email:
Make sure we take out the shots of Michael in that red leather jacket at the sound stage where the mini-movies were being filmed. He looks way too think (sic) and skeletal
Gongaware replied to Phillips, his boss:
ok will have a look when it comes on screen
Gongaware said he didn't try to control any of the messages about Michael after his death to reflect he was fully engaged in rehearsals. Panish asked about an email from Gongaware okay'ing the band, singers and dancer to give interviews but asked them to keep it positive
In another email July 9, 2009, email to music coordinator JoAnn Tominaga, Gongaware wrote:
We are ok with the band, singers and dancers doing interviews now. The only thing we ask is that they keep it positive and stress that Michael was active, engaged and not the emaciated person some want to paint him as being.
Answering questions from Jackson family attorney Brian Panish, Gongaware said he was not trying to control the film's message.
Panish: "You're telling them what not to say, aren't you sir?"
Gongaware. "I'm asking them to keep it positive and not say he was emaciated"
Panish: "So you were controlling the message as a producer of that documentary"
Gongaware: "I don't think so"
Gongaware's testimony again emphasized the contrast between the answers he gave during his deposition under oath in December 2012 and his responses in the courtroom. In testimony, he agreed that Phillips meant "thin" in his email, instead of the word he typed, 'think'. Asked during the deposition what Phillips meant, he replied, "I don't know what he meant"
Gongaware said nothing was taken out of the documentary, which included rehearsals for the scheduled 50 concerts in London. Gongaware promised in a follow-up email to Phillips that he'd "have a look," but he testified that he never dumped any footage. "We didn't keep anything out based on what Randy wrote," Gogaware told jurors. Gongaware testified that he did not know why Phillips would ask that.
Gongaware said there were 15,000 tickets per show, $1.5 million in tickets per show, $47 million for all 31 shows. Tickets were selling at lightening fast, Gongaware said. "As fast as the system can sell.". The tickets were sold in March, Gongaware said. It was held by the arena, AEG had control of the money. Gongaware said merchandising was another way of making money. The building, which is owned by AEG, would keep the revenue of beverage sold. Gongaware said the beverage money would offset the arena rent, which Michael would not have to pay.
Gongaware: "His (MJ) potential was great"
Panish: "Unlimited ceilings?"
Gongaware: "If he was willing to work that hard, he would've done well"
Before lunch, Panish asked Gongaware whether This Is It was intended to be a multi-city tour. Gongaware said no, it was just going to be the 50 shows at London's O2 arena. "The only thing we knew was 50 shows in London. Michael had not agreed to anything else," Gongaware explained
Panish asked Gongaware by the time the show was sold out, how many people were in the queue to buy tickets. "250,000 people were still in the queue, which would be enough to sell another 50 shows," Gongaware answered. During Murray's trial, Gongaware testified that 250k people still wanted tickets. He told that jury This Is It would be a multi-city tour.
Panish: "Did you tell the truth when you testified in this case, sir?"
Gongaware: "Yes"
Panish then concluded his questioning of Gongaware.
AEG cross
AEG's attorney, Marvin Putnam, did the questioning of Gongaware on behalf of the defendants.

Putnam: "Have you ever been sued personally for the wrongful death of anyone?"
Gongaware: "No"
Putnam: "How are you feeling?"
Gongaware: "It's difficult, it's very stressful"
Putnam: "Are you nervous?"
Gongaware: "Yes"
Putnam asked about Gongaware's memory and he said it's okay
Putnam asked Gongaware about some of the emails shown to jurors yesterday. Putnam was trying to show that not all the contents of the emails had been shown to jury. Some email addresses had been redacted. Attorney Brian Panish objected to the redactions, and got testy with the judge. It prompted another lengthy sidebar. When attorneys returned from the judge's chambers, Putnam resumed questioning Gongaware about emails sent to his private account
Putnam said Gongaware handed over more than 13,000 emails in discovery from the This Is It period
Putnam inquired about Gongaware's Kazoodi personal email account. On 6/20/09, the chain of emails with "Trouble at the Front" was sent there. Gongaware said he didn't remember receiving this email. Gongaware said he had more than one "Kazoodi" email account. He said he was not using the account the email was sent to on 6/20. "The account was closed at the time." Putnam presented Gongaware a document that indicated the private email account had been closed at the time. Gongaware said he never denied it was sent. Gongaware claimed yesterday was the first time he saw this chain of emails. Putnam used the closed email account to try to show Gongaware's testimony was truthful
Putnam: "Why could you not recall e-mails?"
Gongaware: "I had not reviewed them and had not seen them in years,"
Some of the e-mails were new to him because he was so busy putting Jackson's tour together that he never read them, he said. Gongaware said he was receiving hundreds of email a day at the height of 2008/09 tour preparation. "Mostly, it was just a time factor if it was something that didn't have to do with me"
Gongaware said he doesn't have an office at AEG, and that he works on his own projects. He has an office at his house. Gongaware is the Co-CEO of AEG Live Concerts West with John Meglen. He said he was the co-founder of the company. Phillips is AEG Live CEO
Gongaware explained be has been testifying about what he could recall. If he didn't remember, he said he told the jury he couldn't recall. Gongaware testified he looked at the emails after his deposition because he wanted to put everything together and see the bigger picture. Putnam: "Did you try to give your best testimony?" Gongaware: "Yes, I did"
Regarding the phone call between Gongaware and Dr. Murray where the doctor asked about $5 million, Gongaware said he remembers that call. The next call between the two, it was the $150,000 call, where Gongaware offered the doctor $150k. Gongaware said those were the only two calls he had with Dr. Murray
Gongaware said the 1st time he met Dr. Murray was a meeting at Michael's Carolwood house. He said MJ, Kenny, Randy, Frank & Dr Murray were present. Gongaware recalled the other meeting with Dr. Murray was an encounter with him at The Forum. He remembers saying hello to him. Gongaware said he's sure he didn't meet with Dr. Murray other than on those two occasions
Gongaware said he promoted couple of shows/dances in college. He graduated in '69 from Waynesboro College in Pennsylvania in Accounting. He worked for Arthur Andersen in NYC after college as auditor. He said one needed two years of experience in order to get CPA license.The company ended up shutting down after being involved in the Enron scandal, Gongaware explained. He said there's a continuing education requirement in order to maintain his CPA license, but he hasn't kept current. "I didn't like that work," Gongaware said about leaving the practice. "I wanted to do things and not just be an accountant." Gongaware said he ski bummed for a winter and would do bookkeeping to pay for his lodge.
His first big show was in Colorado -- he got The Grateful Dead to perform at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colo. He said he didn't know the band or any of its managers, but asked them to come to Colorado. They did, and the show was a hit. "The concert was sold out", Gongaware said, and he became an independent promoter. Around 1975, he met Terry Bassett who worked at Concerts West and Gongaware went to work for them in their Seattle office. He worked for them for about 10 years. Gongaware said he went to work for the company because the money was steady. At Concerts West, Gongaware worked with Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, Beach Boys, Chicago, Eric Clapton, among others. This Concerts West is not the same; he is the currently the co-CEO. Gongaware left Seattle and came to LA to work at Concerts West. He then went to Warner Miller Films. The company did primarily ski movies. Jerry Weintraub was Elvis' promoter and Concerts West assigned him to work with Colonel Parker, Elvis' manager.
Gongaware was in his 20s when he worked with Elvis. He said when they'd announce an Elvis concert, there would be lines at the box office for 4 days. Gongaware said Colonel would buy ads on every radio station and promote the show. When tickets went on sale, Gongaware was to report to Colonel every hour regarding the ticket sales.
Elvis Presley's death became a controversy at this trial as the man (Gongaware) who promoted both artists' last tours testified. He testified yesterday that Presley died of a drug overdose, but when his own lawyer questioned him today he changed his testimony to say Elvis died of a heart ailment. Presley collapsed in the bathroom of his Memphis, Tennessee, mansion, Graceland, on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42. While his death was ruled the result of an irregular heartbeat, the autopsy report was sealed amid accusations that abuse of prescription drugs caused the problem.How Presley died is relevant because Jackson lawyers argue Gongaware's experience as Elvis's promoter should have made him more aware of drug abuse by artists, including Michael Jackson.
Although he worked advance promotion on Elvis Presley's last tours -- under the direction of Presley manager Colonel Tom Parker -- Gongaware testified he never met Presley.
Putnam:"Did you understand he had a problem with drugs?"
Gongaware: "I understood that later. There was a period of time when we didn't work. I didn't understand at the time, but I learned that it was a drug problem and the Colonel said he couldn't work."
Around 1992, Gongaware went to work on the Dangerous tour with Michael. This was his first time working with Michael Jackson. He worked with the Jacksons in 2000 but he remembered working on a tour with the Jacksons prior to 92 and said Michael was part of the group. "I was the tour manager, handled the logistics and travel for the B party," Gongaware said, adding he worked for Michael but not for A party.
  • A party - artist
  • B party - band and administration
  • C party - crew
  • D party - documentary people.
    Gongaware said there were several legs on the Dangerous tour. It was a worldwide tour. He never met Michael on that tour, saw him on stage a few times
The first time Gongaware met Michael was in Las Vegas when he was visiting Colonel Parker. Steve Wynn's brother called and said Michael wanted to meet Colonel. Gongaware stayed and met him

Putnam: "Were there any doctors in that tour?"
Gongaware: "Yes, two"
Gongaware said Dr. Forecast was Michael's personal doctor. He didn't think Dr. Forecast treated anyone else, so they had Dr. Finkelstein also. Dr. Finkelstein, a general practitioner, was in the B party. They went to places where they didn't know the quality of local healthcare. Gongaware explained Dr. Finkelstein treated B, C and D parties. Gongaware said he did not see any doctor treat Michael. Dr. Finkelstein told Gongaware he treated Michael twice. Dr. Forecast wasn't in Bangkok yet, so Dr. Finkelstein treated him when he needed.
"The King of Thailand said Michael would have to do the second show because his friends were attending", Gongaware recalled.
Gongaware said the King put armed guards outside their doors to make sure they didn't leave

Putnam: "During the Dangerous tour, had you come to have an understating that Michael had a problem with drugs or painkillers?"
Gongaware: "No, he Dangerous tour in 93 was cut short in Mexico City"
Gongaware said. He learned it had to do with drug addiction because Michael announced it. Putnam played the audio with Michael's statement:
"My friends and doctors advised me to seek professional guidance immediately in order to eliminate what has become an addition. It is time for me to acknowledge my need for treatment"
On Jun 25, 2009 Gabriel Sutter (a tech guy) wrote Gongaware a condolences email. "It was such an incredible shock to go through that experience," Gongaware explained. Gongaware's response on July 5, 2009:
I was working on the Elvis tour when he died so I kind of knew what to expect
"You have all these people out of work," Gongaware explained. "With Elvis some were without jobs permanently." Under questioning from Putnam, Gongaware said he didn't mean that he expected Jackson to die like Elvis. He was referring to the trauma of people losing their jobs because a tour is canceled and the estate taking over the legacy, he said.
Putnam: "When you wrote the email, did you expect Michael to die?"
Gongaware: "No, not all"
Putnam: "Did you ever consider the idea Michael would die?"
Gongaware: "No"
Here's what Gongaware had to say about the role of the estate after Elvis died (and what he expected after Jackson's death.):
"Then the estate takes over, and everything's different. You have nothing to say about anything"
When one of his friends asked about his plans after Michael's death, Gongaware replied he was "trying to recover our losses from the show"
"Michael died of overdose of Propofol. He didn't die of being sick or malnutrition", Gongaware said. He said that he had no idea of what Propofol was. "I had no idea" Jackson was using propofol in the weeks before his death, Gongaware testified
Gongaware said he worked on Michael's memorial service. He was in charge of the tickets and worked closely with the family. He said he didn't charge for his work.
Putnam: "Why did you work at the memorial service?"
Gongaware: "It was the right thing to do"

2023.05.30 12:52 rayneraynedrops Concerned about my sister developing an ED

I am concerned about my younger sister's about her new eating habits and I need help.
Hello. First time posting here and a former recent lurker. English is not my first language so I'm sorry for the grammatical errors.
My younger sister just recovered from a flu and recently lost appetite. For the past few days, she has been skipping meals (usually one but may be twice) and expressed a continued loss of appetite after her days of being sick. She further said she doesn't want to eat much because she's concerned about her weight and appearance in that she want to be appealing to other people. She actually has low self-esteem and self-confidence as a result of our toxic environment in the family. For context, we live in a Filipino household where there are comments about body and stuff.
She is also fairly of normal weight as far as historical records have.
A few days ago I brought it up on her and I noticed she gave vague answers (understandable because maybe she's cautious) like she just doesn't want to eat but eventually told me about wanting to get skinny.
A while ago, after we ate breakfast, she immediately said to go to the washroom. And I was immediately worried 'cause what if she's purging or vomiting? I did go after her after a few moments and when I got there, I asked her what she's doing and I did see her silhouette from the door that she was peeing. Then after she got out of the washroom I immediately broke down and cried and warily asked if she was vomiting. She said she could never do that because that was a form of self-harm that she didn't want to do. I believed in her and I hope it's true. We exchanged a few moments and she reassured me that she's not starving herself either.
Now I'm trying to better our relationship by being there for her and supporting her regardless if she does ever have disordered eating (going to become eating disorder?) or not.
Also, we can't go to therapy because it's inaccessible and not affordable here and my parents don't believe in that stuff.
What can I do more so that she can feel more comfortable and not feel shame or guilt about her sharing? Thank you in advance.
