Hahaha! Hilarious.

It's true, but not breaking news. LOL. My guy friends used to hang out in the produce section for as long as they could to pick up babes. LOL. Asking a woman how to pick out tomatoes or cantaloupe was their schtick. ROFLMAO. And they WERE successful!

You cannnnn doooooo eeeetttttt! :D

Yeah, LOL ... they don't call it a "meat market" for nothing. It's funny but I actually believe that it really does work. But seriously, meeting people whilst grocery shopping clearly doesn't work for me and that is probably because I am obese. I may smile at someone who I think is attractive but very rarely is the smile returned, much less even acknowledged; I am invisible. In fact, I hate grocery shopping because it is a constant, nagging reminder of the fact that I am fat.

Omg!!! This is too much. I love it.

I once ran into a man at the Whole Foods. We were in the fruit Aisle:360_strawberry:. I was looking for a platter of the best picked assorted, exotic fruit they had to offer. I found that platter and I reached out ever so gently to retrieve it. Our hands :1298_raised_hands_tone4:touched and for a second we stared deeply into each other eyes:unsure:. A look of longing:54_hushed:, as we both desired those delicious fruits. For a moment we could not look away:71_smiling_imp:. Then some chick came she took the damn fruit:49_triumph:. Oh it was about to go down. She almost caught all my hands:1323_punch_tone4: . but I let it slide as the employee brought out a freshly made platter.

Hi @Mattymatt. I agree with @336Mike about grocery shopping now. But I do remember, all too well, how it feels to feel invisible. Being judged by my body size in a grocery store or Walmart sucked. I felt it every time. I was mortified when I ran into someone from college or high school. Most of them didn't even acknowledge that they knew me. Still nursing those battle scars. Tks for being vulnerable & posting something that can be so hurtful.

Wait, I ask women in the grocery store all the time for help, for help, not for pickups. Nothing ever came of it....

Should I have hung out more in the chocolate and ice cream isles for rebounders?

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.
