@James. First, an apology. My last comment on this thread was unacceptably whiny and surly, and for that I'm sorry. My response was triggered by a misguided impression that my idea for a weight-loss glossary was being sidestepped as unworthy. I was hurt when I saw your abbreviations list posted --and pinned-- while my project idea for a weight-loss glossary seemed to be unacknowledged and ignored by the administrative staff of this forum. I was being the star of my own pity-party reality show! :blush: My behavior was childish and silly. I expect better of myself.

I will continue working on my glossary so that it's more than just an idea. I still run into acronyms, updated vocabulary and new terms (for me, at least) like orthorexia, trocars, Circle of Discontent (COD), twilight sedation, ARFID (formerly SED), surgiversary, and "disordered eating". In the near future, and when I put together something more substantial, I hope to find a way to share it with this community.

P.S. Did you pin your abbreviations list yourself... or was it pinned for you?
