One of the joys of a public profile. Let us know when the Nigerian prince turns up
I think his behaviour was a combination of adolescence and mirroring what he's seen. I don't think he was a bad kid. I felt he was a kid in a bad situation.
I disliked her for the first 1:45 hrs, what an obnoxious human being she was. Rude, disrespectful and ungrateful. She did redeem herself in the end, but I really feel for poor Neiko. Teenage children should not have to care for their parents!
Mine are standard doodles, so they're 85lbs each. Most doodles are smaller than they are.
Syrah, the brown one, is a labradoodle and Barney is a whoknowswhatadoodle as he was a rescue from a very bad situation. His previous people were prosecuted for cruelty! He's the nicest dog ever.
No, but if your an arsehole, we make you wait to at least 6
There are some vets on here that give TERRIBLE advice, you'll meet them at some point, and they do get called out. Being a vet doesn't make you special, or command respect, it just marks your experience as a WLS'er.
This site has some very experienced professionals, (in no particular order) Drs, Lawyers, PA's, Psych PhDs, NPs, midwives, RNs, Statisticians, Science Geeks, etc. If you answer something, you had better know what you're talking about, because I guarantee someone else will.
You'll soon get the lie of the land here and know who's got great advice and who talks bollocks - and we all have our part to play. I rarely, if ever answer newbie questions because my brain doesn't remember that far back, but those in the honeymoon period are in a perfect position to do so.
Mine too, Gina, good times
Thank you, Kathy. No dog hair in my house!
There's definitely something special about going off and living your life ... unlike us boring people, who have no life, so stay to pay it forward
You have to serve your time to be a vet here. 5 years. And we're very protective of it. Anyone calling themselves that before that time will get an eyeroll and
Just to confuse the matter further, we also had the Sand Club, but some little yapper complained to the mods so much, we were forced to delete it. Where is that little ankle biter now, mods? And yet we're all still here paying it forward!
Is it wrong of me to want to marry Idris Elba, now that Grim's taken ... (don't want to hurt his feeling by moving on too quickly) And how many *****es do I have to mud wrestle to do so? (Ok, it was just an excuse to post a picture of a FINE MAN!)
Thank you for the intro. We have a very lively RNY forum with lots of vets (5 years +) who are around every day. There is also an awesome Menu post every day, which will help keep you accountable among your peers.
You'll get a warm welcome, I'm sure. Congrats on the weight loss so far!
I didn't mess with my diet, didn't add anything in or manipulate it. Just followed the plan until my body stopped losing. I lost 120lbs in under 6 months and was only a 40 bmi to start with. I'll take a bet that most people who are SUPER compliant, lose a lot and quickly. We all make our choices in what we're willing to do to get where we want to be.
The OP is still losing, so he doesn't have to do anything different. If you are someone who is free'er with their diet, then your mileage may vary.
"Choosing" a weight seems to be a recent trend. What's wrong with losing until your body decides it's enough? It could be 20 lbs or 50 lbs - Ive honestly never come across anyone who disappeared, so I don't think any of us need to manipulate the process. Just keep doing what you're doing and the weightloss will just stop.
Good job, btw
Hes lost 13 lbs in two weeks, so it's looking good
My son is only 13 but is 6ft 3 and 260lbs at this point. Obviously, we're very conscious of weight in our house and it has been so sad to see him gain this weight.
Thankfully he's under a neuropsych unit at Children's and so they monitor his overall health as well as his mental health.
Age is currently on his side and his labs are all good, but we are going to be very vigilant about his overall health.
Thank you for sharing your story, I'm sure many people will recognise themselves. I wish you the best general health and congratulate you for being proactive in your mental health!
My son has put on 100lbs in 3 years on Abilify. He has had to go on Metformin to try and halt the gain.
