Soon we aren't going to say anything of substance because we may offend someone! If a blog bothers me I just delete it. Everyone has an off day once in awhile. :huh:

Well said addrienne, and Joanne is right, if I don't like someone's blog, I either delete, or don't bother!

Great post and I agree.

Everyone has an OPINION!! Do you have to agree? NOT AT ALL.

Everyone does have an opinion. Too bad everyone doesn't have common sense!!

This will not be a popular rant....

I'm sorry but when someone posts that they are just a week post op and they just tested their band by eating a large pizza and want to know if they are OK. Then I say let the b***h slapping begin. Not a good attitude I know but when you've read enough of these posts it can be frustrating. I usually sit back and shake my head at the ignorance and then I ask myself did the person not bother to educate themselves or was it the educators who failed them or are they just that out of control with addiction.

People who do not comply and are completely ignorant and are the ones leading to skewing stats as far as success vs. failure and doing a dis-service to themselves and the reputation of the band.

Hi Jim, I really have to disagree with you. I think this is going to be a VERY popular rant. Well said! And Adrienne, the lunchmeat comment had me laughing so hard that now all I have to do is think of the word lunchmeat and that's it for me. My husband is calling down from his office, what's so funny? How to explain, but it's all wrapped up in that most predictable of human behaviors: stupidity.

I couldn't think of anything at the time. I was just annoied and lunch meat was the first food that popped into my head. :)

Jim Jim Jim.... Wow, you thief; those were some of my thoughts intermingled in that rant!

--hugs--

Occasionally I will read post to my hubby that the noncompliant bandsters make:

--- last night for supper I had fried pork chops, Mac n cheese, cornbread, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes & a jug of ice cold sweet tea. I chewed really well but i still occasionally felt that pain in my chest and took my time but it took me about an 1 1/2 hours to finish eating my entire meal. I am 1 month post-op and I thought this band was supposed to "make me eat less"? I tried it once, but i just can't live off of 2 cups if food.

First we were shocked & floored!

Then we just would stare at each other like "it's happening again, what is wrong with these people"!

Now, I just shake my head and say "well I guess they aren't as sick and tired of being fat as I am"!

--- hubby says if they would have dropped 10k for their band then maybe they would be more compliant, but that theory has also been disproven.

....carry on....carry on

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
