FFFC-FFFC's

They are kind of lame these days, I thought an FFFC was suppose to be something that might normally get flamed, and their is nothing flamable about most of the confessions that are posted.  They are just random statements sometimes about something someone did during their day that is nothing special really.    It should be changed to Friday Statements or something.

    My FFFC-

    I hate the separate FFFC posts. What happened to the one single post that had them all in one spot?  Now every other post is a FFFC.

    It's probably because FFFCs aren't really flame-free and people are afraid of getting ripped.  That said, I have noticed that the FFFCs and UOs (and sh!t-stirring posts generally) have greatly decreased on this board.  There's usually more action on 6 - 9.

    You want flame-worthy huh?

    I judge fat people.  Yes, I know that makes me a big giant jerk.  I still judge.  I'm not talking about mildly overweight people, I'm talking about obese people.  At that size, just moving your arms up and down would help to shed some calories.  Stop moping/blaming your genes and do something about your condition!

    Now THAT is a fffc, lol.    And I agree about the seperate threads, I would always try and post in someone elses or if someone started one I'd post in it, but people complain that it gets too long and the quotes get confusing so now I don't normally even post one but after reading some of them today I felt like saying something.  PLus, I don't ever really have anything flameable to say, or unpopular.

    Oooh, I've got another:

    If your husband is an a$$hole, leave the bastard.  Don't come complaining to the bump about how you have to do everything around the house and with the kids (I see this posted at least 3 times a day).  I'm sorry, I don't have pity for you if you won't do anything to fix the problem, and your kids will suffer by having to witness a bad marriage.

    Ok, I have a good one.  I have struggled with eating disorders for almost 15 years now.  Last summer before I got pregnant I lost a ton of weight by working 16 hour days and living pretty much off of booze.  I had to start eating when I got pregnant and packed on the pounds.  I never really ate anything horrible, my metabolism was just all out of whack.  I BF Logan so I still have to eat, but I have resorted to puking anytime I eat anything bad.  I make sure I always have enough calories and nutrients for him.  I am afraid that once we wean I will go back to not eating.  I keep saying I am going to get help, but I havn't followed through yet.  Embarrassed

    Oh, and since I am on a roll.  I got married when I was 18 (go me).  Right before our 5th anniversary I cheated on him with my prep cook.  I freaked out and walked out of my job on a Friday night in the summer.  Yeah, I'm a treat. 

    ETA: We got divorced and I am now very happy with said prep cook and our baby.

    Sad  I hope you find the courage to get help. If you don't it will get worse.

     Boys learn about the value of women, how to treat a woman,etc.  by how their dads treat women and by how their moms treat themselves.

    Teach your son that women (namely-you) are beautiful.. and that people are valuable because they are people, not because they look a certain way.

    Not to mention, boys are prone to eating disorders and other self-destructive things just as much as girls are. Be a good example and get some help now, so that all he remembers is a self-confident, self-loving mom.

    Just because you're venting that your husband needs to help around the house doesn't automatically warrant divorce papers being served. Most often than not, I see these posts and women are asking for different perspectives on maybe HOW to communicate to their husbands--- maybe they've tried their way, and it's not working.

    You run a tight ship if you'd divorce your husband over not, say, doing the laundry. Wink

    Sigh... Yes, there is an exception to every rule.  But are you honestly trying to tell me that every obese person out there is as ambitious as yourself?  I applaud you for your effort, and yes I'll agree that sometimes nature just won't let you lose the weight, but in a vast majority of cases, obese people are obese because they eat too much and don't work out enough. 

    Oh, and btw - my self esteem is just fine, but thanks for your concern.

    Huh, that's odd.  10.5 months is early to be on cow's milk.  I guess I just don't understand why she's not still giving the baby BM if she's got it available.

    Hey, I admitted it might make a jerk.  It's just one of those things I carry in the back of my mind.  I have plenty of friends who are overweight - really good ones in fact, and I would never say this to them because I realize that weight is a very sensitive subject (I've been overweight myself, actually, but busted my a$$ to get back in shape).  I know I have plenty of things besides weight problems that people can judge me for too - I'm not claiming to be perfect.  People rip on smokers every single day for choosing an unhealthy lifestyle.  I don't see how what I'm saying is any different (aside from people who have a medical issue preventing them from maintaining a healthy weight).  It might not affect the general population like smoking does, but when my grandmother died when I was 5 years old from a weight-related disease, it sure as hell affected me. 

    ETA to say sorry - that was a massive block of random thoughts without paragraphs.  You got the point, hopefully.
