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?

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
