Wanna bet?

This is quite long, might get a touch political, technical, and snarky.  But I feel it has a number of things that needs to be said so please be patient with me.

Bariatric Eating has never been one to join the Obesity Help events.  There’s a long bit of history that new members won’t know, but maybe should?  I’m putting it up to provide a bit of back story as to WHY BE traditionally does not attend the OH events:

“Expert” Opinions

On November 8, 2010, in General Nutrition, by Andrea

Sitting in the "Supplement Lecture," trying to find a way not to slit my wrists.

I’ve not been blogging.  This is my mistake, life has been in the way with my parents moving from Kentucky to North Carolina, some personal issues involved in that, their house being built apparently on an ancient VooDoo burial ground, and my inability to cope with it all.

Oh.  And my deciding, randomly, to take much of the information that I know about lab draws and tracking laboratory trends and writing a book.  9 days before the Houston OH event.  Yes, you saw that.  Nine.  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.  And I did it.  But that’s another blog post.  Coming.  And yes, they will be for sale.  Once I figure out how much to charge for shipping, etc.  Not the point, MOVING ON.

So, this weekend, the OH peeps were able to listen to the wonderful Connie Stapleton (who I REALLY think needs to do a segment on transfer addictions… PLEASE folks?  Please tell her this?  It’s a severe problem in our population with “current” numbers at 1 in 3 people being alcoholics and I think the number is VERY soft), the hilarious Mary Jo Rapini, and Bariatric Chef Dave Fouts (who, by the way, is ONE OF US).

But.  But.  But.

Professional Post-Ops

On September 8, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

It’s like a suicide mission when you can’t see no end
Tired of compliment fishin’ and impressing your friends
I never kissed no one just to kiss and tell
It’s a little bit of heaven and a whole lot of hell

There’s been some discussion of “Professional Post-Ops” and their “Behavior” of late, and it’s been running around in my head.  Specifically, it ran through my head yesterday as I was wiping down my walls, baseboards, and chair rails, high as a kite from bleach (can one get high from bleach?  I’m voting yes..) in preparation for house guests coming in from Sweden this afternoon.  I mean – when there is so little thought required in a task, it’s only normal that one’s mind will wander.  And wander mine did.

Blame it on the BBGC

On August 26, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

She’s done wondering what it’s like to be liked by everyone, and like everyone be just like anyone, and just wants to be so just like anyone, and wondering what they mean do they just mean to mean to be mean, and thinking about the scene do they just want to be seen, and try not to seem so just like anyone. – Soul Asylum

I’m back from the ObesityHelp Cincinnati Conference and I can safely say that of the now three events I’ve attended?  This was, by far, the most fun I’ve had.

And I place the blame squarely upon the shoulders of the BBGC – those bitches.
