Repeating messages

Quote From: kissymouth

I have noticed that on the message boards alot of the messages are repeats. HOW COME?
I think what you might be referring to is a QUOTE feature that is available on our site.  If you click the "reply with quote" button it will show the original message above yours in a white box.

Contant struggle

Hello Everyone:  This is my first post in about a year.  I and some friends had started a Dr.Phil Weight Loss Solutions group last September 2004, but have since stopped meeting.  We really enjoyed meeting and were beginning to accomplish things.  Until I got really sick.  We haven't met in over 6 months and I really miss it.  We use to meet once a week and talk about the book and the difficulties we were having.  Talk about out successes and what works for us.  I would love to get the group going again and stick to the book.  I have, since the group finished gained about 35 lbs.  I need someone other than myself to be acountable to.  I am looking for some people in Prince George, BC who might be interested in joining a weight loss solutions group.  I know this can work for anyone who truly is ready for it.  I know that I need the group support to follow through.  I can get to the gym, I can eat well, I just need someone other than myself to be accountable to.  I know that we can form great friendships.  If anyone is interested please email me.  nannahtopaige@yahoo.com

still sighting food addiction

i am post gastric bypass i once weighed 350 i am now down to 172 i have been fighting obesity sonce a young child. i have some to terms that its not just weight it is an addictsion. i was and still am addicted to food, even though i had gastric bypass i still think of food constantly. i feel that a support person/group an dprofessional help is much neeed in my situation and think some others coul dbenefit from it. the reson im posting this is because i feel that when you los the weight no matter whater what it will always be a battle and you need some kind of support system in place. just my input....

I wish people knew what it was like...

I wish people knew what it was like to be obese.  That is it...I am fat. I don't know why my body insists on eating.  My stomach doesn't say "hungry". It is my taste buds that scream " Food" !  So I feel that I am eating for mental reasons rather than physicall hunger.  What do we do? It is a constant battle. We eat because we are fat and people make fun of us which makes you more hungry and depressed.  I don't just sit down and pig out on a box of donuts everymorning. Matter of fact..I am a diabetic because of my weight.  I very rarely eat a candy bar, but when I buy one, I feel like the whole world is watching and thinking, "That fat person is eating Candy !!!". the guilt is so strong.  I can't enjoy a good treat without thinking.   I know that I shouldn't care about what people think, but you know what....I do. I want people to like me. I want to have friends.  When you must go a life of ridicule and no friends, ( true friends),  you see how important it is to have a friend.   I am a good person.   I wish people knew what it was like to have people pay more attention to weight than who you are. I have yet to find someone to agree. Maybe I am wrong, but I think not. Everybody needs a friend. I just don't have one.
