I have many, many faults. I know this.
Yesterday I found myself hockey checked off of a social network for a temporary ban. Gasp! Shock! Horror! You might think I did something awful to deserve the "jailing" but it sometimes works in reverse on social networks. When a person outs a wrong or blows the whistle -- sometimes THAT PERSON -- in this case me gets tossed offline for saying the word.
My theory about this: is that Facebook is so big, so many users, that it's team of eyeballs that look-over-the-things-that-offend-the-people cannot possibly fathom the Things That Offend Each End User Of It's Free Service.
Even when someone like me -- gets a thinly veiled threat or not at all veiled -- and I re-post it -- I get the boot.
Hell, I could not even follow it. All I knew is that someone posted they wanted me in the ground - there was a shovel and salt. AND I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I DID TO DESERVE IT - aside from my last post. Which is my TRUTH. MY. TRUTH.
Soon, there were two dozen angry rabid post weight loss surgery patients, (some that were former members of my group, some that I did not know) jumping on a hate filled thread on Facebook -- name-calling and wanting me in a hole, too. Why? I have the thread. It may or may not still be going. I don't know. It is painful to read. I was called a bitch, a victim, and worse.
And for attempting to stand up for myself, I am the one in the Facebook slammah. Facebook's popo clearly can't follow the chain of events and regard my actions as the problem. The persons whom are actually at fault are publicly posting and GLOATING about their success in getting a person bullied offline.
One is accepting cash donations. Why?
So. Here I am. In jail. Eating mush. Getting violated.
Hey, I suppose I shouldn't knock it too hard, it's free delivered food, free clothes, and a place to sleep, with no kids to bother me - and do I have to pay taxes? <g>
Might not be a bad idea. Screw it.
I hope you feel better about yourself today.
Hey, don't judge, I don't see you trying.
Make a donation of ANY size to the Walk From Obesity! We are SO close to goal, please help? All donations are eligible for prizes from OAC via me. Thanks!
I've got that Barenaked Ladies song "One Week" playing in my head as I write this post --
Check this out, there are only two teams signed up to "Walk From Obesity" during the #YWM2013 event.
Where are you?
If you can't make it, please consider a very small donation to make a very big difference.
The Giving Tree.
It is likely because Team MMBBGC is so very little (..no really! It is me, some out of towners that joined by accident, and that's it!) and Team MMBBGC has been pushing #YWM2013 bracelets hardcore and sort of let this Walk slide.
I NEED YOU.
Remember, if I reach the goal, there are prizes, I gave away FOUR iPods/Wiis a couple months ago for our performance in 2012.
Please throw a buck in the pot.
I have also learned that giving up things I can't control - stressors - outside influences - people, even - helps. I started losing the weight as soon as I made this connection.
Look at my weight loss timeline. Look at the dates.
Now look at my regain photos from the last year - same timing.
Let. it. go.
âYou will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles.â â C. JoyBell C.
People CAN be TOXIC to your HEALTH. Let. them. go.
(*Not the ones in this photo. LOL. But, I am also 25 lbs lighter SINCE these photos and the timeline. It's a visual.)
Here's to YEAR ten. It's a big one.
I guess I didn't know much about the woman.
And then I really listened.
Watch the above link before you rant.
Watch it. Come back.
Now. Are you sad for her? Are you sad? Because this woman is a Weighty Secret. She has zero self-esteem. Zero self-confidence. Listen to some of the things she says.
"I loved it, it was fabulous." -Weighty Secret, Joan Rivers re: Bulimia
She is one of us, just aged and faking hateful things.
She needs a hug.
It's Joan Rivers uncensored! She talks candidly to Dr. Oz about her husband's suicide, her struggle with bulimia and the insecurities that drove her to plastic surgery. Plus, Joan's daughter Melissa exposes her junk-food habit.
Wait up OH.
I thought we did the tenth a few years ago? Talk to me.
Irvine, CA. (March 23, 2013) â Obesity Help -
ObesityHelp is excited to announce the 10th Annual ObesityHelp National Conference at the Crowne Plaza in Anaheim, California on October 4th and 5th, 2013. The ObesityHelp National Conference is a celebration of health and wellness for those navigating their weight loss surgery journey. Youâll walk away inspired, motivated and with a larger support system than you started with. You will be part of change, gain knowledge from experienced professionals, and witness (or have your own) non-scale victories right at the conference.
In 139 days the BBGC is descending upon Phoenix, Arizona for the #YWM2013 with the Obesity Action Coalition. This is the 2nd Annual Event -- and we want to be a bigger part of it. Last year several of us traveled to Dallas, Texas for the 1st Annual YWM Event and LOVED EVERY MINUTE of it. Note:
This year -- we decided we want to put a ring on it.
In addition to fundraising for the Walk From Obesity (Walks From Obesities? Plural... Remember last year - $7,300.) and doing good the Bariatric Bad Girls Club is sponsoring a portion of the #YWM2013 event. I implore YOUR business or group to do the same, it is a worthwhile cause.
âOne of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.â
â Jean Vanier
I promised to give back the prizes that YOU helped me ( and Team MMBGC!) earn!
Look what we did!
Out of those who donated to Team MMBGC in 2012, I'll be picking WINNERS and posting them VERY SOON! (It's a huge list! THANK YOU!) Lucky! Lucky!
They. brought. it.
Bring it to OAC, guys. Let's go.
