    Real quick before the thread closes - Chad has a book on amazon: I'm in Here Somewhere: Memoir of a Food Addict.

    Our office is always freezing. All the women have little blankets (I have no idea what the men do). You have to wear long sleeves or at least a light sweater, even when it's 90 degrees outside, because of the cold.

    Me, too. I hate that my days off have become either cleaning or editing my articles. And this weekend, if my son doesn't go away with the GF, I'll be at his place, helping to unpack. Retirement can't come soon enough.

    I'm such a baby. I'm crying for June & Mary. I am reminded of my great aunts ( one bio, one her partner), who were together for 50-ish years until my bio-aunt died from Alzheimer's. I wonder if they would get married if they lived now? June, sweetie, have fun, be happy, but don't let 'enjoying life' put the weight back on you.

    Yes. If you watch any of the weight-related shows from the UK, almost all of them eat on their laps on the couch - not even a TV tray. I don't know how they do it.

    Chad, "It still hurts to move, but I can walk a lot further." When I first started this job, I had to take the little disability / old people golf cart from one end of the hospital to the other. I don't anymore. You have to try, even if it hurts.

    I hope this doesn't trigger you too much. I saw it today at work and some co-workers were distraught. 😄

    She should be ashamed, complaining like that. I know everyone has a different pain level. Usually I have to have more than 1 numbing shot for dental work, so I understand, but Dr Now has seen a lot of these patients. He knows the pain level that is normal and that Pauline is full of stuff. I bet she could have taken a few aspirin or Tylenol while she waited all day for Dr Now and at least taken the edge off of the pain, but that's not what she wants. She wants drugs (understandable 😄 ). Often, my hips hurt so much when walking thru the hospital (where I do audits on research), I have to stop and sit down or just stand in place for a moment. Pauline doesn't want to feel any pain. Well, sweetie, that's not life - especially if you eat yourself into 600 lb category. Things are going to hurt, or be difficult to do. Adapt and overcome.

    My only child is grown; we are close as well. He lived across the street from me and I loved it, but when he bought a new house the other month, what could I say? Don't go, sweetie? (well, yeah, I did, but...) I know he has to live his life and we were very fortunate to find houses across from each other, but that's not likely again. I do plan on moving closer to him in another year, though. He's only 15 minutes away, but it seems so far... He's cute, though. I'm going to retire at the end of the month. When he put an offer on the house, he said, "When you retire, you can come and sit in my house all day if you want." He works from home. I think he wants me to make lunch for him. 😄

    I think he was shot. I vaguely recall her saying it was a "wrong place, wrong time" kind of thing. Mothers often don't know what their kids are up to, so who knows if he was into something or not? OMG - how old is Dillon? He's huge. I can't imagine he dates - not because of his size, but his soft face & the hair. This is not dating material.

    The surgeries these people have to have! You'd think that alone would stop you from eating too many grapes.

    Hi y'all. My eating habit is a baked potato and some chicken. There might be desert later.

    Who's James? Was he on the show and I missed him? One minute she's thinking about dating, next she's got a date. Her hair kinda looks like Nichelle Nichols hair. Wait, is this her husband's brother?

    I got a phone call at work that the physician researcher had died and there was a subject coming from out of town to participate in the research study. We had to scramble to get someone else on the team named as principal investigator and the study modified; you can't just let it continue with a dead investigator. I felt bad for his team; you have a colleague who's died, but you need to get the research done to help other people live.

    I missed it. One minute she was waiting for surgery, I guess I blinked, and the next thing, she was talking about getting a hotel room. What happened?
