I *always* respond to those threads. Just preface it with "DW" or whatever. Never once has anyone told me I didn't belong or shouldn't post. I figure that it both reminds people that not everyone falls into a heteronormative description of a "couple", and makes discussion of other forms of couples a less-strange occurrence and more normal.

I'm lesbian, and my partner and I will be celebrating our 24th anniversary this year! We started off as two young, thin and beautiful women and grown into two mature, heavy and still beautiful crones! I'm dieting -- she's not. But she's very supportive and I have a feeling she'll lose as well since I do most of the cooking <G>

By the way ... I'm of the generation that still has bad associations with the words "queer" and "dyke" so I usually avoid them. I'm use either gay or lesbian. Then again, I'm too old to use "grrls" or words like that! Well, not too old ... just too set in my ways.

Also, what the heck is a DH? I tried googling it and the Urban Dictionary was the number one hit and it said "Di*khead" -- I can't believe that's what everyone here means by that.

Hello. My partner and I have been together for 6 years. I'm the chubbier one of the bunch. She loves me for who I am, and enjoys that I'm a bigger girl but she has no problems with me if I said I'd like to change and lose some weight. She's in the normal range and I hate her for it, haha.

Talking Reintroduction

My gmail account joyously announced activity on this thread and I clicked in like I hadn't been AWOL for weeks. Ha-loooo!

Single, disabled dyke mom to a precocious 4 1/2 yo daughter, living/laughing in Seattle, preparing for returning to college and med school at that.

Currently enjoying melting off each inch and pound for a healthy, mobile, functional body that will empower my dreams.

Did I say *SINGLE*, tell your friends. LOL

Your goals are fantastic! Best of luck! (in school and in the dating waters, heh!)

Hey everyone !! Ok so I have a question and it might be silly but I'm gonna ask anyway. I'm from NY, about 30 mins outside Manhattan and my partner and I will be moving to FL, the Miami or Fort Lauderdale area. My question is....are there gay people in FL ? lol I mean I'm used to NY so I just want some comfort and knowing we won't be alone down there !! I know I'm just being crazy but it's a big move for us and I want us to be comfy....ya know ?

Hi! Well, um, I've always thought I was bi, probably because I was raised in a strict conservative household, so I was kind of raised to think of being gay as a "bad" thing ... I've been attracted to women since high school but I kind of figured I would end up with a man eventually because that's what I was "supposed" to do (my parents' words, not mine)... anyway, just very recently I'm starting to think I might be a lesbian, not bi. It seems like knowing which I am should be simple, but it isn't! Questioning it all can be such a pain in the you-know-what sometimes.

Anyway, hello to all of you. It's great knowing there are fellow GLBT people here.

Skyra, I was attracted to girls in grade school, but didn't date my first woman until I was 28!

Best wishes on your questioning journey

Default Need to start over on the weight plan...

Hi Everyone!

I am here asking for ideas, support, conversation, just a connection with others. I am a 45 year old overweight lesbian.

I am happily partnered, and a mother to five children with three still at home.

Two years ago I lost over 40 pounds, and now I have gained it all back again and am so frustrated with myself for allowing that to happen. I feel like I am so fat I can't even stand myself anymore. I am 5'10 and currently at 235 pounds. I NEED to be at around 160 or so. This seems so overwhelming.

Also, I work from home and hardly ever socialize. I feel really isolated and I don't have much desire to get out and mingle with people when I look like this mess anyway. Today I got up and decided I HAVE to find a way to stop this cycle of weight problems that make me miserable. I feel like I am running out of time to enjoy life, and the weight is keeping me from that. So, if anyone on here wants to write and offer whatever... ideas, suggestions, encouragement, just a connection with the outside world with those who understand, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for listening... Barb
