No I'm not, Jambles. You used the words "eating disorder" in conjunction with her post. You're also insinuating that Regina's infertility is related to her eating habits. I happen to know the reasons for her infertility, and I guarantee you they have nothing to do with her weight. And besides, she is thin, but not unhealthily so.

Exactly! You, Sav & PKA can attest to the amount of sushi I can put away...;)

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

PKA, I try everything and my favorite all time (which I won best dessert at a dessert party lol) is Coconut Chocolate Pie. For the crust: 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 11 ounces (about 6 cups)sweetened shredded coconut For the filling: 1 1/4 cups heavy cream 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate (preferably 61 percent cacao), finely chopped

Isn't that a Martha Stewart recipe?  It looks delicious, but I still wouldn't eat a whole piece.  A piece of that pie would use up about three weeks worth of "treat allowance."  I might get it and share it with two other people, just to have a couple of bites!

She doesn't think otherwise.  She's pointing out they aren't funny and they aren't polite.  What kind of twilight zone interpretation of her post are you spouting?

You really need that reconciled?  Google "fat jokes" or "skinny jokes."  You'll get thousands of hits, hundreds of jokes spread by people who must think it's OK to spread them.  Duh.

The fact that many people make rude remarks about weight makes my statement that many people think it is ok to  make rude statements about weight true.

I never stated that I was among those who thought it was ok, in fact I said the opposite.

Only when they are towards others (like other people's dh's) but then they totally forget that their OWN dh's are overweight too lol

Yep, Martha Steward. You eat a sliver of it as it is very rich. It tastes just like a gluten free chocolate cake I have had at a local restaurant/bar. Sooooo good.

Really..  Why would I want to google fat/skinny jokes?  To know many rude people that still spew that kind of stuff is atrocious to me, esp in this era of anti-bullying and all.

Of course they can. And Regina didn't indicate anything to the contrary.  But I think that Regina - and her doctors - would know what caused Regina's infertility better than Web MD would.

I find that debatable. Doctors may be sensitive to their patients but they indeed do use research and statistics to support their practices.

But they use their patient's information (you know, test results, exams, that kind of thing) to make actual diagnoses.  If all it took was statistics, we wouldnt' need doctors.
