Apologize for what mops? Eating disorder? Food obsessions.. What? And why?

Jambles, it's kind of rude to diagnose someone with a psychological disorder over the internet, based on only the information that she needed to gain a few pounds.  When in fact, she's recovering from eight months of chemotherapy and radiation, not to mention major surgery.  I don't know, maybe your assumptions and accusations could be a bit hurtful?

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

Nobody diagnosed anybody over the internet Bord. And I don't think spring's post was poster specific either.. You're confusing posters.

<p>Bord-it was about letting yourself have something that you dont eat on a daily basis, even things that are not healthy.</p>

Yes, we've all pointed out that we do that; we allow ourselves food that is not necessarily "healthy."  We all have different cravings and things that we eat that are off-plan. Some of us have shared our favorites.  I will not eat something unhealthy I don't want because later in the week I might have a chance to eat something unhealthy (like a creme brulee!) that I DO want.

Where did I say that I thought other wise.

  I stated that all weight jokes are rude,  whether is it about someone being "fat" or someone being "skinny".

  For example, when someone states they have been trying to gain weight, a comment of "eating disorder? " is extremely rude.

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.

Thank you Dr. Jams. Not that this is ANY of your business but I did bring it up, so I will clarify that my reproductive endocrinologist was just fine with my weight right where it is. And given that he had actually READ my medical chart and treated me before I successfully left his practice expecting itty bitty, I'm just going to point out that once again, you have no idea what you're talking about. My BMI is normal. My body fat percentage is athletic but not low enough to cause cessation of menses. So yet another assumption that is way off base.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Yeah, but doctors don't use statistics about one thing when they are treating another thing.  If I go to the doctor with a broken leg, she doesn't start looking at studies about punctured eardrums.  Well, not if she wants to be my doctor for long.

Then reconcile your original comment. You said many (wow!) people think it's ok to make rude remarks (about weight).  Who?  Weight jokes are never funny and I don't know many you think exist.
