Sorry, saw it typed yet again this morning, amazing how many people do it. Just had to get it off my chest, lol.

Pehaps its because Im Australian and Microsoft American spelling also gets my goat?

I know Im no advocate the damn diet but for pete's sake, its Atkins, not ADKINS.

I'd say you have some "perfectionist tendencies", which is alright as long as you are realistic and have no expectation to raise others to your level of functioning. :)

In the grand scheme of things, is a misspelled word really that important...even if it happens frequently?

Be content that you spell the word "correctly", and leave the rest alone. I don't believe that your feelings have anything to do with "American spelling"...the word of the day is "tolerance". Develop some, you will be much more calm and happier! :)

ok this thread made me laugh. What gets my goat (love that phrase) is the use of to, two, too and they there, their they're.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
