Since sharing the news of her heartbreaking pregnancy loss with her fans and followers on September 30th, Chrissy Teigen has taken a break from posting on social media. On Saturday, however, she chimed in on a post that seems to have given her some much-needed comedic relief.

The post, a screenshot of a tweet shared on the Betches Instagram account, read, “Just booked an eyebrow waxing appointment and I’m excited I’ll be wearing a mask so I don’t have to hear ‘mustache too?'”

“Finally, a giggle. Thank you,” Teigen commented. Many fans responded with supportive messages and well wishes, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Teigen also received an outpouring of support earlier this month after sharing intimate photos from the hospital showing herself and husband John Legend dealing with the tragic loss of their unborn son, who they had named Jack.

“We are shocked and in

Kate Beckinsale Shares her Baby Loss Story in Support of Chrissy

Last week, Chrissy Teigan and John Legend shared the heartbreaking news that they lost their baby at around 20 weeks into their pregnancy.

34-year-old Chrissy had been bleeding for about a month and was taken to hospital when it started getting heavier. She said: “Every time I would go to the bathroom [there] would be blood… but today the big difference was that it was kind of like if you were to just turn a faucet on low and just leave it there.”

Despite the best efforts of medics, tragically they lost their baby son shortly afterwards. Announcing the news on Instagram, she shared a carousel of black and white images of the couple and their baby boy, who they had named Jack.

While thousands have reached out to express their sadness for the family and extend their well wishes, others haven’t been so kind, questioning why Chrissy would share

How Chrissy Teigen’s openness can impact public perceptions of pregnancy loss

Chrissy Teigen’s recent announcement that she’d suffered a second-trimester pregnancy loss shocked her fans, not just because the news was devastating but because of the heartbreaking photographs and caption she shared to social media.

The model, who was expecting her third child with singer John Legend, had been giving her 32 million Instagram followers regular updates about her complicated pregnancy, including details of her recent hospitalization and needing two blood transfusions.

And then, on Wednesday night, she posted four black-and-white images that laid bare the pain of her loss and the physically taxing process of childbirth, along with a note to the “little guy” she and Legend named Jack.

“To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive,” she wrote. “We will always love you.”

Of course there was the expected and rightful outpouring of sympathy and empathy for both her loss and sharing her raw pain, a brave gesture, but underlying that nest of support and love, came the questions from insensitive internet commenters.

Why didn’t you go to the emergency room sooner?

Was this all staged for attention?

Were you really that upset if you were able to “pose up” for a photo?

Why do people say such mean things about miscarriage and pregnancy loss?

Chrissy Teigen, who has normalized issues such as postpartum depression and infertility, revealed in an Instagram post on Wednesday that she experienced a devastating pregnancy loss.

“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” Teigen wrote alongside a series of black-and-white photos of herself and her husband, John Legend, mourning at the hospital.

After sharing the news, Teigen was inundated with messages of support, but some found it necessary to call out Teigen for seeking attention.

“It’s kind of sick that when you loose (sic) a child you focus on snapping a good staged photo… Insane world,” one person commented.

This might be nothing new for a celebrity who’s used to the glare of a spotlight; but regular women who have suffered through pregnancy loss say that cruel comments are far too common.

Trump’s Crew of Far-Right Vigilante Poll Watchers Is Coming

The truck-revving, banner-waving, loudspeaker-blaring pro-Trump rally took place, conveniently, on Sept. 19, the first Saturday of early voting in the swing state of Virginia, in a parking lot where voters in Democratic-leaning Fairfax County were lined up to cast their ballots. Some Trump supporters drove circles around the voters while others—many without face masks—mingled with the line, chanting and waving flags.“We had a couple poll observers there that had to actually escort voters in because we saw people that would get to the edge of the parking lot, and see this giant group of Trumpers yelling and screaming,” Jack Kiraly, executive director of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee, told The Daily Beast, adding that the scene reminded him of the volunteers who escort people past anti-abortion protesters outside women’s health clinics.So during Tuesday night’s remarkably unhinged presidential debate,

Intermittent fasting may cause muscle loss more than weight loss, study says

Intermittent fasting might not be as healthy as some may have thought.

A new study on the topic was published in JAMA Internal Medicine  – a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal overseen by the American Medical Association — and suggests that the time-restrictive diet isn’t necessarily the best strategy for losing weight.

INTERMITTENT FASTING SHEDS MORE WEIGHT, BUT MEDITERRANEAN STILL HEALTHIER OVERALL, STUDY CLAIMS

The study was conducted by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco and the University of Hawai’i Cancer Center. After observing weight loss results from 116 adults who were considered “overweight” or “obese,” it was determined that intermittent fasting didn’t yield “significantly different” outcomes from people who ate their meals at typical intervals.

People who practice intermittent fasting refrain from eating for certain hours throughout the day. Some dieters do not not eat for a 24 hours while others prefer to opt for a large calorie

Intermittent fasting doesn’t help weight loss: UCSF study

For seven years, Dr. Ethan Weiss, a cardiologist at The University of California, San Francisco, has experimented with intermittent fasting. The health fad, which restricts eating to specific periods of time, hit the mainstream after a series of promising studies in mice suggested that it might be an effective weight loss strategy in humans. 

So Weiss decided to give it a try himself by restricting his own eating to eight hours per day. After seeing that he shed some pounds, many of his patients asked him whether it might work for them. 

In 2018, he and a group of researchers kicked off a clinical trial to study it. The results, published on Monday, surprised him. 

The study found “no evidence” that time-restricted eating works as a weight loss strategy. 

People who were assigned to eat at random times within a strict eight-hour window each day, skipping food in the morning,

The Underused Weight Loss Option: Bariatric Surgery

Although guidelines set in 1991 limit recommendations for bariatric surgery to those most severely affected by obesity, current evidence indicates that young people who are not yet morbidly obese may be especially likely to benefit from weight-loss surgery. Most adolescents who are obese remain obese as adults and have worse medical outcomes than people who became obese as adults. The surgical route is now sometimes offered to adolescents and young adults with obesity-related health problems like Type 2 diabetes that have failed to yield to diet and exercise.

In a study reported by the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health that followed 2,221 patients, within three years of bariatric surgery, most experienced less pain and improved ability to walk. But as with any weight-loss program, such benefits as well as lasting weight management depend on whether patients stick to a healthful diet and exercise regimen after the surgery.
