Does anyone else dislike being called skinny or thin? I just just just got my BMI down to 29, from obese to the very highest "overweight". I accept the compliments, and I'm grateful since people mean well. But skinny? I'm not. I don't know why it gets under my skin so much.

I know what you mean. I appreciate compliments BUT I know I still have a long way to go so it feels patronizing when people say 'skinny Minnie'. I'm far from 'skinny'.

That's it! It feels patronizing. I know that's not the intention. Also, if this is so "skinny" to them, how freaking huge did they see me before?

I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd sympathize with skinny girls who found the term offensive. I'm sure I'll hear it a lot more when I've reached my goal (140ish and I'm 5'6.5"). My BMI will be smack in the middle of normal..

Well as my ex so clumsily pointed out when I got down to about 28 or 29 BMI that I was relatively small cuz everyone else has gotten so fat in the meantime. Some truth there.

I weigh in the low 140s now and I definitely get the "too skinny" thing but I am not. I think i am just right .

Can't stop number crunching. My short term goal is to hit the nice and pretty 100lbs lost mark at my 6 month followup, which is scheduled at exactly 6 months. June 10th. So if I'm 176 now, and I need to get to 168 by June 10th, that means I need to average -.6lbs/day. I do this math daily. Ah!!

I'm so worried about my friend. :( I hope she can lose the weight and become more mobile.

I'm an avid thrift store shopper, especially since I've been going through sizes so quickly. My local Goodwill has a Plus Size rack, which made shopping so convenient before. That's the only place I looked. Now that I can shop in the "regular" sections, I see that there are tons of plus size items wrongly mixed in. Ugh! Can't believe I was missing out on so much.

When I come across these items, I pull them and re-hang them in the plus size section. Gotta look out for each other.

Oops, sorry I missed this. Thanks! I officially hit the 100 mark yesterday, and I'm freaking thrilled. So what if it was at 6.5 months, not 6 months exactly. :)

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
