I'm the 300 pound fatty who starting walking at the gym
Now I'm suffering from the worst sunburn in my life. I used the tanning bed at the gym to enhance my mood and appearance. I'm so fat the coffin lid rested on my stomach (yes, like the Flannery O'Connor story). Now I'm so sunburnt it hurts to wear clothes. My back is burnt too and my skin is literally hot to the touch. Please help.
put 4 fingers in your hole real deep then pull them out and smell
I'm using spray can novacaine but I'm still in pain.
Look, we told you, nothing fried.
Ewwww, Sounds Tortuous!
Do you really need two threads, OP?
I am approx. 325 pounds and I walk at the gym for 20 minutes a day and also tan. I feel like it is helping me lose weight - slowly and surely! I just turned 30 and realized there has to be some changes in my life.
They have a great dining area at my gym (my gym is actually located at shopping mall, so the food court is just three levels down). Yes, they don't have the best selection (Arby's, Chick-Fil-A, Mcdonalds, TCBY Treats) but I am able to make heatful choices such as diet coke and only the six piece chicken nugget. Again, baby steps. =)
To keep my gym time optimized, I started wearing diapers so I don't have to interrupt my workout with frequent "bathroom breaks." I visited my friend who is my size and lives in an assisted living facility i.e. retirement home. I borrowed one of his diapers (or as I like to refer to them, "diaperz") and realized that this was the best choice from me going forward.
I wear them at work, at home, on the subway, and have saved so much time. The other day, I was almost late to a meeting and really needed to "pee pee" but was able to "take care of business" (both 1 and 2) DURING the meeting! It was so amazing. It's just amazing. I feel amazing. I'm wearing my amazing diaperz.

Fill a spray bottle with apple cider vinegar or white distilled vinegar. Which one you choose is a matter of convenience--they work equally well.
Lightly mist the sunburned areas of your body with the vinegar spray from the bottle. Spray the sunburn every few hours or whenever the pain returns.
Spray a cotton ball with vinegar. Lightly dab sunburned areas of your face with the cotton ball. Repeat as needed.
Add two cups of apple cider vinegar or distilled white vinegar to warm bathwater. Sit in the bath for approximately 15 minutes, allowing the vinegar bath to soothe and relieve your sunburned skin.
Soak a washcloth with apple cider vinegar or distilled white vinegar. Lay the washcloth on the sunburned area for approximately 15 minutes. Repeat if necessary.
The tanning booth is to get rid of the back-acne, admit it.
If you have acne, your testosterone levels are probably high. That's a good sign
Why do they have tanning beds at the gym? It is unhealthy.
Put a hand towel in cold water and lay on the burnt areas.
It's November, you arent suppose to be tan
Stop whining and show that Wessonality!
Use aloe vera gel. Diet soda has been proven to make people GAIN weight. Black coffee, or with low-fat mile and cinnamon would be a better choice. Also try whole grain bread with protein and vegetables.
R6 please talk in detail about doing number 2
The Cider Vinegar advices is great .. You can also soak in a tea bath. When i first visited Hawaii many years ago i got a really bad burn on teh back of my neck and the locals at the swap meet said i should use the vinegar to take out the sting and the tea bag to take out the heat and it worked amazingly well. You might smell like a salad for a few days but it works really well.
Lucky typo, that one. Units of heat=calories.
OP, if you're not a troll, NEVER, EVER use a sunbed again. They're utterly dangerous and will be banned in a decade or so for giving people skin cancer. You might think it's a small dose to pick you up, but it's one step closer to premature aging and cancer.
OP, I think you've received some good sunburn-related advice upthread. I just wanted to say I'm glad that you're staying committed to your goal. Keep going!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
