How Do I Delete / Close Account



Recommended Posts

Can someone please provide directions on how to close / delete my account and remove my information from this site? I searched through help and the forums but didn't find anything relevant.

I just read this in the forum rules :

We do not remove member forum accounts on request. You are welcome to stop visiting the VerticalSleeveTalk community if you no longer wish to contribute or participate in discussions. If you have privacy concerns, we provide our members with the ability to change or update their display names. Members also have the ability to update or modify any information made available in their public profile.

With rare exception, once messages are submitted to the forum and replied to, we do not remove them. Removing messages completely would be a disservice to our community as a whole; especially to those who offered a response to you.

"Removing messages completely would be a disservice to our community as a whole; especially to those who offered a response to you." Clearly, allowing us to leave would be a disservice to your advertisers. I wish there were a fine for virtual kidnapping.

Why don't you guys just change your notification settings -- to stop any emails you receive about new posts, etc.

And if you don't want your picture here or your name here, you can change those (using no avatar at all).

If you don't want your prior posts showing, you can take the trouble to go into posts you now wish you'd not made and edit those by putting in only periods.

Those are some work-arounds to meet whatever your new needs are.

And if you don't like these suggestions, don't yell at me ... I'm just trying to be helpful. ;)

Well, another option would be to do something to get you kicked off lol. That would solve it .

All kidding aside, I agree there should be an option to delete account.

I am trying to figure it out too. I was on board until I realized there is no way I can figure to edit or delete the posts I have made. This is clearly not right.

"Virtual kidnapping"? You mean you didn't sign up of your own free will? You were seized in the middle of the night and forced to sign up for BariatricPal against your will?

... Or do you mean you didn't read the terms & conditions and now, you're upset by the very rules you didn't read?

      I don't know when I reached Onederland but just weighed myself @198. 😁

      Constantly amazing myself. This is probably a normal experience for all of us on a WL journey.
      This morning I was at 174 pounds (78.9 kilos). I can perceive that my brain hasn't really caught up to this yet, as I still feel obese, even though I am close to being considered a normal weight, not even overweight. The smaller clothes, the higher fitness level, the great blood work results, the energy- these all tell me a totally different story!
      I have NEVER EVER been, never, not once in my life, nada, zip, zilch, zero times, been "thin." I think this explains some of the disconnect between the reality of my body and the stuckness of my brain. I do have confidence that my mind will catch up soon ❤️
      Not really having the experience of true hunger yet, but I can perceive the peristalsis of my digestive tract. And I am getting very good at spotting head hunger, and simply noticing it, like a Buddhist.

      I ordered the Barbecue Protein Crisps here from BariatricPal, and find them quite tasty. The Ranch flavour, not so much. They are very filing and have a satisfying crunch.
      I continue to shrink, and am amazed at the changes all over my body. Visually, it is striking to me. In the mirror, I look thin to my eyes, but I don't feel thin, although I can see more bones and veins and tendons and floppy skin. Cardio-wise, It takes a lot more effort to get my heart rate up and I'm now monitoring which heart zone I can get into and for how long. My resting heart rate is the lowest it's ever been.
      If I think about it, and I left myself feel it for a time, I weep (like, boohoo cry) with joy. I am so grateful to myself, and proud of myself for having the courage to have taken the leap to better health.
