Those Weird Things That Come With Being MORBIDLY OBESE. (A thread for laughs)
First of all, I know we ALL have to hate that label...MORBIDLY OBESE. It makes us sound like monsters. We're just overstuffed teddy bears that need to lose some of that stuffing, aren't we? Yeah, I think I like that better.
I thought I'd make a thread for us to discuss those obnoxious issues that come with being overstuffed. For example, how many of you get boils on your inner thighs from them rubbing together so much? Gah! I loathe that. And another thing? A recent slang term that I've heard lately that makes me cringe? FUPA. (If you don't know what this is, I suggest you go to http://www.urbandictionary.com and search it. Disclaimer : this is a raunchy site at times, and this particular word has a raunchy definition)
And let's not forget the aching back and feet! I can't do dishes for longer than 10 minutes...I don't know about ya'll, but if *I* take a break every 10 minutes, my dishes NEVER get done.
So how about you? What are some "issues" that come with the territory? Anyone have any suggestions or home remedies?
P.S. Have fun with this thread. We all need a laugh during our weight loss journey. Not to mention, once we're at a healthy weight, these problems will have gone away, and it'll be fun to look back on this thread and laugh and think "I'll NEVER have to go through THAT, AGAIN".
Chub rub: check
Boils/skin issues: check
Shoe tying: check (I gave up on tie shoes, they always come untied for me, and now wear mocs, zip-ups or Velcro-strap shoes: although there are some kinds of laces that you don't have to tie, they have a pull-up toggle in them [look for Yankz, the Sahalie catalog has them]. I never was good at tying shoes at any rate, I must have been 9 years old before I got the knack)
Small loo stalls: check (I go to the handicap stall whenever there is one)
Loo making an ominous sound like it might not support your weight: check
