Rant: The Word I Hate



Recommended Posts

I hate the word "pouch."

There, I've said it. I feel better now.

Yes, I know doctors use the word.

No, I don't have a better word.

I just don't like it.🤣

That's so funny, it bothers me too! I have absolutely no idea why, but I never use it.

I have a smaller stomach that works just like big one but better. I do not have a pouch :)

I feel the same way about "moist" and to a lesser degree "journey". Must be a remnant of some childhood trauma, lol.

I refer to my new stomach as my banana. Sleeve sounds too much like foreskin or something. Pouch just makes the bypass people sound like kangaroos. Kangaroos are cute.

"moist" is a commonly hated word. In fact, there's a Facebook group for haters of that word.

I thought I was the only one with a dislike of the term pouch. It's just weird to me. Lol

I never got the pouch thing. Isn’t it still your tummy just smaller?

Kangaroos have pouches to raise & carry their young. A pouch is like a pocket, a sporran or a backpack to store extra things.

Let’s ban the word pouch.

BTW - Moist never bothered me. I use ‘journey’ a lot here - sorry.

This is funny, thanks for starting! Moist does not bother me, but I get how it could bother people. I am guilty of journey and have recently caught on to my over using it, especially with weight loss. I am trying to look for better alternatives, although I am not bothered by its use.

Words I hate-FAT, OBESE, BARIATRIC 🤢😖🙁

(yes, I realize I am on "Bariatric"Pal! Sorry, BP, I like the website/ app/company😉😊🤣).

I hate "weightloss journey" too. I don't mind if anyone says it....it's my personal hang up, too. It's just so cheesily coined from My 600 Pound Life or something. My eye twitches over it. It's really not a bad term or anything...it just feels overused and cliche and makes me grit my teeth a little.

I picture two dogs and a cat on a log with a bear or something.

I have issues. LOL.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
