    ...How silently frustrated I will get with others who claim to be trying to lose weight but are doing it in a completely unhealthy way.

    Oh my gosh. Yes. So much.

    This thread is great!

    For me, it's that grocery shopping takes so long, because I'm reading every ingredient list. Also, there are some things in the store I just don't know where they are, because I mainly shop the perimeter. Someone asked me if I knew where X was, and I had no idea. They thought I was weird!

    . . . . there are some things in the store I just don't know where they are, because I mainly shop the perimeter. Someone asked me if I knew where X was, and I had no idea. They thought I was weird!

    I pre plan my weekly meals and shop with a list, which I stick to AND I walk every aisle. How else would I get my steps in on a grimy day. Fitbit assures me that my local Tesco has 1.25 miles of aisles!!!

    My NSV is a little scale related: I've been reverse dieting to find my maintenance calories level and dropped another pound - and this week I've stayed at the bottom end of my target range!

    I also went to a theatre production last night, staged in a 1000 year old castle. The old seats were so uncomfortable - it seems I don't have enough padding on my rear end.

    That trying to keep up with the boys when you're 60 pounds lighter results in you getting embarrassingly plastered. :disappointed:

    I'm only 11kgs lighter but yep. My alcohol tolerance has gone out the window

    Now that you mention it, I realize that I rarely go up the middle of the store as well.

    Grocery stores seem to suspend the laws of time when I go in them. I have no friggin clue what happens but I usually end up shopping for a couple of hours.

    Actually, that's not true. Since I am trying to remain on my low sodium diet, I have a very selective list of things that I will buy. Take jello, for instance. I get sugar free jello cups that come in a package of 12. However, the one brand I used to buy all the time has 50mg of sodium per cup and I found another brand that has 15mg per cup. So, since the store where I do most of my shopping doesn't carry the lower sodium variety, I have to make another stop just to get jello.

    I usually have four or five "specialty" items like that and have not found a store that has all of it under one roof, so I have to hop from store to store just to get the items I know I'm going to buy. It seems to eat up an entire Saturday afternoon.

    Yes! I'm like that too! It makes me feel like they're undermining my efforts when they tell me how they're doing it, with a smug tone. But they don't see results.

    They don't put your weight on your licence? Where are you from? I'm Canadian, and that's standard. No sarcasm intended, just curious?

    Nope, Michigan doesnt put the weight on there either (thank goodness)! They ask for it when renewing or getting it for the first time, but it's not printed on the card!

    I have a fridge magnet that says "My goal is to weigh what my driver's license says." My license weight was 10 pounds under my real weight for five years, now it's 45 pounds over my real weight. It expires this month. I have another 40 pounds to go - what weight should I say?!? Decisions, decisions (and first-world problems). :)

    Missouri does. Last time I had mine renewed, I handed the guy my old one and he just looked back and forth between me and the license and then asked me how much I weighed for the new one. I was way under the old one that had been under what I really weighed. It was a good day :) I also has Lasik surgery and didn't need glasses anymore, it was like I was a different person.

    TX here. And no weight listed. But I did live in Louisiana and they put it on there.

    They don't do it in Australia either. No height, no weight.
