Crossed wires?

Re Twisting words

"I didn't say fortunately or definitely and I didn't say all the time. Why did you twist my words?"

Wow.

So obese people don't have a right to have their medical issues addressed the way other people do? So it's appropriate to be demeaning toward people and reduce them to one aspect of their being? How...

Ashley...

I have a sneaking suspicion that you may be African American? For some reason, BMI calculations don't work as well for African Americans; I suspect that in general they may have greater diversity in...

Fat prejudice in Health Care

I'm a health professional and have had a few bad run-ins with doctors who seem to think that being overweight means you are also stupid. I've looked into this and discovered there are many, many...

Thumbs up Admirable.

I don't think I'd be comfortable posting a pic of my belly online, although I'm a little heavier than you are. I'm impressed with your courage and commitment to keeping it real!

Wink New...to forums

I've used FitDay on and off for about 4 years with great success. However, the past few years have been tough in terms of weight and fitness- I've traveled a lot and gotten married. I'm a health...

In fact I am a doctor, and the doc I saw initially (I...
