That chip on your shoulder has grown into a sack of potatoes, bru**** off because you're looking like a right numpty at this point.

People disagree. That's life. It shouldn't be a big deal. You disagree, you make your point, respond, and move on. Every community is like that. If someone's feelings get hurt that badly, they need a completely different kind of help.

Being passive aggressive and always claiming to hate discord, while creating more discord, adds nothing to the community. It's just narcissism. 

Having said all that, Kim, you were still wrong.

PS. I also dislike people who have to have the last word.

Topic: RE: A bit off topic: Relationships, romantic

I've been here for donkeys years (12, give or take) and have been at the bottom of more than one or two pile ons.  I believe one of those on the Sex Board actually ran to over 1000 comments!  Where are all those people now?  Gone!  

I will jump in if I believe someone is being treated unfairly, but I won't stand by and let people post stupid **** because I feel sorry for them.  We all deserve honesty and putting yourself out there invites it.  You post something, you get the good, the bad and the ugly.   I rarely put myself out there.  Posting that pic of my bf and I is a huge deal because I doubt I've posted more than 2 or 3 pictures in the public forums in 12 years.

I don't think the OP posted anything wrong, maybe her delivery could have been better, but it's a controversial subject on a group of formerly fat people for sure.

Just so you know, I dont see anything wrong with your post. I have never been attracted to overweight people. Even when at my heaviest, I was still active and in the gym.

Ignore the hags... Grim... etc. They will pipe up and chime in and be negative as often as possible.

Any response you make they will twist and contort to try to turn to you. Then go snicker and gossip about you on their private group/forum.

Try not to let them bother you.

I read your post more so along the lines of you wanting someone who has made better decisions in life than you have as far as self control with food, exercise, etc. Someone that would be able to help keep you accountable and on the new and right track you're seeking.

No shame in that game, man. At all.

You sir are an ass plain and simple and are just as shallow as the OP. 

Those vets that you want to rag on because they express their opinions will always be better than you because they tell the truth and follow the program. 

What you think is negativity is actually facts and correct information.  The OP in other posts admitted to eating things that she shouldn't be eating at only a few months out and continues to say "this is the last time" or "lesson learned"  only to come back a week or two later with something else. 

Does it bother you that they have a private group?

I fancy skinny/muscular men with tattoos, think Adam Levine or Charlie Hunam or David Beckham ...

Howver, my partner is a gorgeous 60 year old, 6ft 5 inch 300lbs hunk of gorgeousness who I just persuaded to get his first tattoo lol.  He's an awesome partner and bonus dad to my severely autistic 12 year old.   Strangely he looks nothing like Adam or Becks or Charlie     If you are serious about dating, have an open mind and open heart.

My son just had surgery and has to pay $400 for his CT scan - it'll go to collections if it goes past 60 days    I told them to offer the hospital $100 per month.  Both he and my grandson had ear surgery this year so they've probably met their limits now.  Sucks!

I doubt I've parked more than two or three spaces from a corral at Kings Soops, Walmart or Super Target.    I have had two kids, one with special needs,  and still put my cart back.  I doubt many of us live in places where it's too dangerous to take 10-15 seconds to return a cart - the corral is rarely in the next county!!!    

I have an NT grandson and don't put him in the car until I've unloaded and corralled the cart.   It's really not rocket science

Your meaning of liberal is interesting.  I suppose I always think that believing others should serve you personally and not just as instructed by their employers is more to the right of liberal.  Gotta love a bit of entitlement lol.   I think you are talking more of union demarcation - one of the more stupid union rules that has led to their wide demise.  Tell the 1970s I said hello   

You do you, but don't be surprised if I'm not alone in thinking it's strange to think that a supermarket OWES you more than they are willing to provide

Let me start by saying I'm an autism mum.  My son is almost 13 and non verbal.

Lots of autism mums live our lives on strict rules and routines and I'm sure the thought of this massive change you are making may well instill some anxiety because they foresee that YOU will change.

Bring your weightloss (boring) self  here for support.  We all becoming really boring for a year or two - food, exercise, protein, calories etc become overriding conversation.  (SOUND FAMILIAR?)   Don't "burden" your friends with it - you have an interested vested audience right here.

Be your normal autism mum self with them and they'll barely notice you dropping 100lbs.

We'll never agree on this.  I think it's an asshole attitude, you think it's your right as a customer.  Never thought of you like this, but I suppose we learn something every day.  My ***** fest would be people who don't pack their groceries, but wait until they've all been rung up and the person on the till does it for you.  I'd lay a bet that's you too.  I'm not too good to pack my groceries or return my cart, if there's noone available or willing to do it.   

Probably a good thing that we're not FB friends - you'd hate my bleeding heart liberal beliefs, I'm sure, and I like me a lot 

 

ETA:  I polled the only other verbalAmerican in my home, in case this was cultural and he said he would pack his groceries IF there was a line behind him because "he's not an ass" and takes his cart to the corral because it's rude not to - doesn't get why people expend twice as much energy to hoist it up the curb than it does to walk 10 yards to the corral.

Yeah, he wasn't always a nice person on these boards but he had his demons and probably succumbed to them at such a young age.

WLS doesn't work on our heads or our personalities and his untimely death should be his legacy to remind us how we need to take care of ourselves.

RIP Ron

Bear in mind that I had my surgery in the olden days, but I had no pre op diet just nil by mouth after midnight before surgery the next day.   We old timers used to say that surgeons with liquid diets just hated fat people!

Stick to your plan as best you can.  It's a process and this is the worst of it.  

Good luck!

Topic: RE: Newbie: There's no shame in my game

Thanks for this, T!  We all have a place on OH and there is no shame in names or game.   Here's my post to the OH collective:

It's not a competition to see who' s more or who's less, on this forum - that's in our individual heads.   It's a shame that we see the same people throwing barbs, just because we try to keep information on here factual.  Surgeons and the medical profession are not God's - many of them and their programs are quite honestly, crap.  Very few of them have lived with this surgery so they don't know much about it past the cutting.   No gum, no fizz, no caffeine, Flintstones for vitamins are all rubbish advice - but if people are happy to follow this blindly, have at it.  

Ive got a background in the medical profession, so I refuse to let someone (even a surgeon) treat me as a child, but you do you!  My doctors have always appreciated my knowledge and commitment to my health because I am my own best advocate!   It's worth the effort to become yours ...

I take 2 x Kirkland brand multi (equal to Centrum) per day (ASMBS recommended)

1200 mg calcium citrate per day (ASMBS recommended)

I have annotated the ones that are based on my personal blood levels and are therefore not a recommendation for anyone else.

I'm really vigilant about my vitamins and my new Doogie Houser (sp?) Doc was shocked at how healthy I was at my annual check up.

I think too many people flake on their vitamins and blood work after a couple of years because "they got this".  It takes a few years for their levels to be in the toilet and it's harder to bring them up than maintain them!

Take your supplements, people!!!

I always feel VERY protective over the term, because there is a big difference after 5 years, when people are statistically expected to have regained a lot of their weight back.

Very few people stick it out here a year, let alone 5, 10 or 12.

You don't have to like me, but I would expect that someone respects my journey and experience and the fact that I am still here after 12 years!!!
