Hey Texas, why does that senile old Tavares poster keep following you around?

She's obviously jealous of you!

This report is crazy. The recipes themselves haven't changed, but the cookbook editors now feel that what used to be enought for 8 people to eat is now only enough for 4. Nowhere does it mention that just because a recipe lists a certain number of servings doesn't mean you have to eat that much at once. The problem is not the ingredients, but the arbitrary amount of food the ingredients supposedly serve. Bottom line--we eat too much, whether it's at a restaurant or at home. Come on people! Just because someone serves you a pound of pasta doesn't mean you have to eat it all at once.
haha.. make your time table when and what to eat. try to take balance diet, don't eat oily food and unwanted food stuff that we find in the market. Do excercise regularly and try to have some fresh fruits more than that be concious of your health because health is wealth.

She is mad because I exposed her for her not so world famous cheap store brand pasta (1 lb) pasta and as much Velveeta as you can cut up at one time and put it all together. Was there butter in there too? Maybe I should repost the recipe. Yep, Velveeta is always classy (not). You can take her out of her mama's Fry Daddy third rate romance home, but you can't teach her better. She is a poser and she knows it.
Shouldn't she be planning her fake daughter's nuptials?
Velveeta? Who eats that artificial processed crap?*Gag* I'm gonna puke just reading this.

Do tell us, Freak......why does your mother hate you? I'm guessing she didn't help with the wedding plans for you and your imaginary "spouse". What does that fatboy do for a living, btw? To make that imaginary $110K (or is it $125K this week? LIAR.) He's probably a drug dealer, selling to those gangs in your trailertown.

She cured her diabetes on Velveeta, Pasta, and Big Macs... Big Macs are her "guilty pleasure". She wrote that in another thread but I don't believe it for a minute. Big Macs are her staple diet..

Hey with that kind of diet and you can cure Diabetes... I'm gonna write a book and make millions!!

Big Macs? seriously? does she have a death wish?

She regrets her online diary. lmao She is turning in posts as mine are disappearing. I'm going to dinner. It's boring with the drinking poster anyway. Avoid them.

Don't forget the baked ziti with ground beef/ground hog, lots of cheese and other fattening additions. Also, her very fattening oyster dressing just like her obese mom used to make. She isn't fooling anyone. While she is swilling that down, I'm having avocados and other organic foods. I bet she has rarely had a salad.
Oh, I forgot. The funniest thing she posted was she likes to go downtown and look for a Cuban. Does she mean sandwich or date? Does Tavares have a "downtown" area? LMAO
I'm sure there are others. The porkers who pretend to weigh 115 are funny. I gave my size which isn't tiny and isn't huge. She can deal with it. She said I have too much junk in my trunk. At least my hips don't bulge out like KK's. I would not like that action. Her or J-Lo. I 'd just say no thank you to that.
The Cuban thing made me laugh so hard I spit my drink out... Too funny!

All she has to do is tell what her starting weight was. IF she lost 50 lbs why be embarrassed to say what she used to weigh

Why would I tell a couple of Twatwaffle Online FREAKS anything? Do you somehow think I owe it to you two pigs to answer your nosey questions??? I owe you nothing, Spazz. You owe me for all the years you and your bastard brats have been living on my tax dollars.

I'd say she is still over 200. She won't give her size which I have done, so that tells me the only place she could wear size 6 underwear is on her head or she could use my size underwear to dust her spouse. I'm quite sure she didn't weigh 155 and get down to 105. She copies Spooky. It's freaky. SM claims her goal weight is 115 and then she crows about walking everywhere. She says her health impairments are from two years ago. They forget they both posted about health issues recently.
I can read well. I just don't want my eyeballs burned out by the awful things they write about people because they think they are someone from the ghosts of topix past.

Wrong. Not in the least embarrassed simply not feeling any need to answer questions from freaks. No one in their right mind would have ANY of the bariatric surgeries, nor would I ever have qualified for needing them. You........TexassTwatface..... ...really obsessed with weight, food......yeah, you might be those 300 pound Shamu people who are eligible for bariatric surgeries...and all the nasty side effects that people get from them. What a pathetic pair you TwatTwins are. I'm starting to think you two freaks are having some sort of weird cyber lesbian relationship.

You mean what about Marcie? I am fairly certainly there are only maybe two main posters left and lots of hat. Trying to keep this tired POC board alive. I don't know any STM.

I have put my weight everywhere.
My breeder hips are genetic, but they do not have fat or jiggle like jello.

I feel sorry for the women ignored by their absentee, snoring husbands. They get on here late at night because they can't sleep due to their husbands and then sleep during the day and post again the next night. They follow the one poster who may or not be male like he is Charlie Manson, David Koresh or some other religious leader phony guru.

Why don't they try following the Dalai Lama and seeking peace?

It doesn't matter what you weigh, only that you love yourself.

I think a great deal of the problem is that it is so expensive to eat healthy. I went to the store this morning and even shopping carefully, it was $200.00 and I still need to pick up a few more things this particular store did not carry. The main reason I went there was because it was on my way and because it quiet in the a.m. Now, when I make my Whole Foods run, I will only have to grab fresh vegetables and fruits. I've tried making things from scratch, but who wants to simmer things all day every day. We're a prefab society. It's the packaged food and fast food meals that will be our demise.

Maybe some will tell how they lost their weight. A friend of mine went on the liquid protein diet to lose weight for her wedding. It's working. She also gets up at 4:30 a.m. to work out 5 days a week. It's not a sustainable diet, however.
