I know you have said you would never consideer having your stomach stapled, but I wonder if Laparoscopy would be less scary? I know two people (including my BIL) who have done this, and it seems to work. They simply can't eat as much, but they still feel full. - Count Uptoten

I have arthritis in my hips and back pretty bad, my right knee bothers me from where I slammed it into a guard rail sliding down an icy stairs, my right shoulder is messed up from trying to do dips in the gym when I was teaching high school, and I have pains in my neck from a car wreck in 1992 - and I'm not convince that losing weight is going to make all my problems in life disappear.

I don't believe for a second "Oh, if I was just thin then everything in my life would be perfect!"

And I could care less what other people think of me. They can just go stuff it.

Plus I have a high degree of confidence that some NDE's are exactly what they purport to be, a visit to some other dimension that our "soul" (for lack of a better term) goes to after the physical body dies; and that I will be reunited with my loved ones that have gone on before me so I'm really not all that afraid of death.

So I prefer to be left alone, but I just get tired of ignorant people like Tele saying judgemental and hateful stuff about fat people. I'm really hoping that one day he will know what it felt like to be me.
