    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Not posted in a while, still have lost that 45lbs, but need to get on that next 45. Well here was my encouragement even if I got it in a weird way. As I stated before I work in a mental hospital. I was on one of the residents living area the other day talking to one of the ladies when I heard someone yell something and it ended with you little white skinny b---h. I looked around and the only person around was me. Then she pointed her finger directly at me and said Yes, you you little white skinny b---h. Oh my God, forget the insults, she called me skinny, have not been called that in 30 years, it was usually fat b---h. Thank you Lord, now on to the next 45lbs off.

    Here I am, rolling around on the floor laughing my butt off and crying ! Is this great or what? You can always depend on little kids and the very elderly to tell you exactly what they are feeling!
    This is also why God looks out for them more, since you basically want to kill em for saying some of that stuff....

    But , hey! skinny is a GOOD thing right? Too bad she had to be insulting about the backhanded compliment. Perhaps you could ask her to at least smile when she screams it at you next time??
