Argh, and that's just totally uneccessary too. I'm just trying to have the last word, which is really pretty pointless.

:(

This thread has been awesome. I now have 6 new people on ignore because of it. :angry:

It was an idiotic thread to start, I take entire responsibility for that. I started it becuase I was majorly pissed off with being made to look like I was picking fights in another thread, not becuase someone didnt want to take my advice. That was retaliation pure and simple, not necessarily forbidden on R&R but it was always going to end like this and I should have known it.

I too now have several people on ignore becuase well, I think they are passive aggressive types who will incite me to behave like this again, I think their situation is pretty hopeless and I no longer care to even try to help and because I think they're just incredibly nasty and I dont think I can trust myself not to keep dropping to their level. I'm really not very proud of some of my posts here. I defend my right to discuss this issue to the very end, but I agree it should not be about specific people.

Personal attacks are not appropriate anywhere, and there's been a lot of that from all sides. I can apologise to the board in general for how this turned out, I dont feel big enough to apologise to people specifically. That may be childish but I dont. There's people here I never want to hear from again and I've taken steps to ensure that I dont.

Now it appears this wont get back onto some sort of constructive discussion, I have my opinion, others have theirs and we dont know each other in real life and never will so it really doesnt matter that much does it? I think certain people know what I think of them and I know what they think of me so perhaps we SHOULD in fact end this thread. Stop trying to expain ourselves to each other? I dont want to hear it and I'm sure you dont.

Sorry mods, for this huge mess. I cant even pretend it was meant with good intent, but once I got over my vent, it was actually interesting there for a while.

I can say I'm skinny and fat type me thinks.

My body wants to be skinny, and healthy so I can wear cute clothes 20 some year olds wear but my tummy wants me to be fat so i can eat lots of foods and my mouth so I can taste them LOL but yeah

Lol. Maybe we can get this thread back to normal, who knows!

Nah, I think its over Froggi.

I think we can CERTAINLY continue to discuss the issue, but not people specifically.

Personally, I think its a really really really important one. I think its a huge part of the journey to self enrichment. I'd like to keep talking about it but I think in this thread and in the next week or two, its only going to end in tears.

I've actually never ended a debate on such bad terms with people and I dont like it.

Wow what a mess this has ended up being. It was never my intention for everyone to get so upset but I just felt that some things being said on here were very harsh and I made my point as to why. I certainly do not condone people attacking the OP and her defenders.

I wasn't attacking anyone, so I will assume you were not talking to me there.

Chickie unfortunately when you put yourself out in the public eye, you will always have the weirdos come out of the woodwork. I have experienced that in another situation I was in.

LOL, why did I read that and picture someone, one hand on hip, the other tut-tutting me? :angry:

No one deserves the kind of abuse I got when that article came out. No one. I am not going to go into details, but it was ugly, and scary. No one, but no one deserves that. And what you wrote there is awfully dismissive. Kind of a "you get what you deserve for going out in the public eye" type thing. That may not have been the intention, but it's how I read it.

On your first point Chickie, I wasn't talking about you. I was talking about a number of posts which came after mine that started to get a bit aggressive.

On your second point, I'm not the hands on hips, pointing finger type ! :lol::lol: I know I'm 53 yo but I'm a pretty cool one, just ask my nephews and nieces when I'm moving to the groove !! :lol::angry:

And please please do not take it that I was having a go at you for going public. I did that with something else in my life and copped some flack for it as well. I think what you did is fantastic. We have a woman in my support group who did that last month in a monthly magazine (can't remember which) and I think it was the best thing she ever did. I haven't heard if she's had anything said to her because I haven't seen her since then. We definitely need positive stories out there about the band and I commend you for doing that. Once again congratulations to you and anyone else who have been successful with the band :(:thumbup: and good luck to those still trying (me included) :):thumbup:

Cheers

Good stuff, I thought that was the case!

Actually, after I posted I thought of the name of the chick I was thinking of. Jo Frost, you know, the chick from SuperNanny? I think she is kinda cute! So it wasn't a bad thing at all!

Good stuff, in this case, I am more than happy to have been wrong.

Whew, glad that got cleared up Chickie ! :crying: Super Nanny, now maybe I could be a little like that ??? :thumbup: I am glad to see you posting again, it's been too long. I think you have a lot to offer and I wouldn't let some of those people who attacked you previously put you off coming back and sharing some of your experiences. I for one do appreciate reading successful posts.

good morning everyone.

i've seen several requests to close this thread and / or let it die ...

the easiest way to do that is simply to not visit and post here anymore.

voila - no debate, the thread will die... simple.

What a pipe dream that was, eh?

Laurend- I am not sure that I agree with you fully on this one. I think that there are the overweight people that are lazy and the "skinny" lazy people. Have you ever heard the term "skinny fat person"? I know several "skinny" people who are 4xs lazier than I could ever be, eat brownies for Breakfast, can't walk up hill without taking a break and so on, those are the people that I find don't understand overweight people. They truely have it in their heads that overweight people are lazy over eaters. I know what you are getting at and I agree with most of it :thumbup:. I personally know that I am lazy about myself and I have been on a pitty party for a few years, on how unfair weight is. I am working on that and have come to the reality that it will always be that way if I let it. I have to change my way of thinking because the fat isn't going anywhere by being a baby and having a fit:biggrin2:.

I definitely agree about there being skinny, out of shape people! My brother and I are of the same parents and I'm short and dumpy and he's tall and skinny. So unfair!!! We're different blood types - I've always wondered if that makes/made a difference.

Oh, you're not agreeing with me? :crying:

That's it, I"m leaving :thumbup:

hangs around waiting for the *please dont go's"

..... well...... I'm waiting .......

Well, yes, it IS different for everyone I guess. I was never that hungry, just ate lots becuase I liked it. Heck, I didnt have a chance to GET hungry, I was such a piglet.

Why can't people understand sarcasm? ARG

I'm with you on the overeating. I had a great upbringing and have no idea what stupid emotions I'm supposed to be stuffing down with food. Annoying!!!

I'm going to blame it on the depression and needing the sugar to help my mood!!! (I really do believe this has a hand but I shove the sweets in my face, no one/nothing else.)

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
