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?

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
