    The [img] should essentially never be used outside of chat. It does not save disk space on the server because we use an image proxy to protect your IP address and to ensure people do not rely on bad third party services like Imgur for image hosting. I hope to have a fix from XF soon.

So Becky doesn't want to go to the gym, but Amber is certain that paying for a gym membership will encourage her to want to go. But... she doesn't drive, so Becky is on the hook for taking Amber to the gym, even though Becky has no desire to work out there. Look, I don't think Amber would consistently use a gym if there was one across the street from her house, but that's just too many hurdles to get over to even GET to the gym, let alone work out. She may as well burn the money she'd use for a membership.

At her size she doesn't need a damn gym. She could literally wander around her house until she hits a good step count each day and that's all she needs for now until she loses a significant amount of weight to be able to do more. It's very telling of how sedentary her life is when she was "super proud" of getting 4,000 or so steps in a day, on a day that was extra active for her with actual exercise. Most humans get around 6-8k steps a day without even trying, just from being a person who gets things done during the day. Add in even a single session of light exercise and you're over the 10k recommendation, easily. In short, she literally never moves.

Lmao at her thought that if she pays for it she’ll do it.... she couldn’t even keep up with weight watchers
Exactly. I don't know why this waste of money would be any different. After the first week it would be "It's too cold out" "It's too hot out" " We're TOO busy".
And I wouldn't blame Becky for not wanting to drive 45 min away for the gym. Just go walk outside!!!

Walking at home on the floor is hard, but walking on a treadmill in front of people at the gym won't be? :lol: Amber wants a reason to get out of the house each day so she can make Becky drive her to Walmart afterward.
Wonder if they can find a place with a treadmill that can support her weight. In any case she will place a strain on any treadmill,possibly enough to burn out a motor.

Long time lurker
Becky comes across as a frugal person. I don't think she doesn't want to go to a gym, I think she doesn't want to waste money on a membership that won't be used.

Edit: I decided to check the video (thanks for the timestamps @666EVE666!) and one of the excuses for not walking when she did her last (I think) video was because she was depressed. I thought exercise was recommended as a means to help release endorphins?
I must be wrong, after all Amber is an expert on everything.

So is YouNow a thing? This isn't the first time I've seen someone on Youtube stream from YouNow. What's the point? Why not just stream on Youtube?

Her YouNow account is linked to her YouTube account, so the stream plays on both platforms while she is live. Not sure why she doesn't live stream from YT because I think they take less of donated money, but the lucrative aspect of YouNow is that it is supposed to be more interactive with the audience. I've noticed more and more YTers moving to YouNow.

Amber could make a good chunk of money if she uploaded her streams to YT.


True & Honest Fan
Besides being out of Amber's life, it seems like just good things really (at least on the surface). Met her biological mom, has 2 jobs, regularly takes her pets to the vet. Posts happy snapchats. And totally out of Becky's life after being friends for 10 years.

Wow, good for her. I enjoyed the Rafe and AL younows because you could tell even though she's very eccentric (not to mention FAT) herself, Rafe is an another plane of IQ from AL and would throw her subtle shade that AL wouldn't understand.

Why doesn’t she just wear her fitbit every other day then? Come to think of it... why did she buy a fitbit at all? Doesn’t she have an iphone ? iphones track how many steps you take and how many miles you walked for that day... it even tracks your sleep... i think the only thing it doesn’t do is track your heartbeat, but i don’t necessarily think that feature is important
