Re: Confessions

  • FI just works with some really incompetent people.  He basically does everything all the time.  He should work a 10 hour day, but he consistently works 12+ hour days cleaning up everyone else's messes.  And then they dangle promotions over his head without every following through because they don't want to pay him the extra $$.
  • Shoes don't feel like a bad bride, I am not that into wedding stuff either but I am think I am more then you.  And I like you too.  And I am also proud of you for admitting that about Ely.

  • Ok...I'm going to bring some positivity to this thread.  And it's WR.

    FI and I are doing a milk and cookies bar at our wedding.  (Along with the cake)

    I found some ADORABLE art on Etsy and decided to buy it, frame it, and put it on the milk and cookies bar.  What do you think?

    Shoes, if you would have sent me your number after yesterday's interrogation thread, I would text you this...

    But I also like you, and don't think you should feel bad about starting FFF.

    Also, I know you are unhappy about it, but I, for one, think it's fucking awesome that you were running late to work because of sexytimes with BOB.

  • Honestly I think I could possibly handle one flame as long as its not too snarky with the wording. But I would not be able to handle the shitstorm that happens when ppl go "second" "third" and then get into the repeat flames. That would feel like an attack and my defensive claws would go up and I'd probably GBCK for a while because I'm a sensitive Suzie. It really just depends on the flame, and still I'd prefer it in the original offense rather than elsewhere at the end of the week. And I confess I'm also sick of reading about FFF so I'll leave with this: Hey girl... The only flame you'll get from me exists in my pants (also I wish I could attach pics from my phone)

    [QUOTE]The board is going to change & evolve just like it has in the past.  There are people here that are fine with FFF & there are people here that aren't.  Obviously it's not that hated because the 2 times we've done it there was shitton of posts on the thread. I'm sorry that some people feel like you can't post things anymore because you're just so terrified about getting flamed but really, not everyone is always going to freakin agree with everything you say or do and sometimes in life people are going to call you out about it.  This is the internet.  It's a message board.  Nobody has been disrespectful.  They're saying how they feel about something just like everyone else. You just happen to dislike what they're saying or how they're saying it.  <strong> This topic is really getting old. </strong>

    [QUOTE] I confess that the deep seeded reason I flamed Ely's workout threads was because I'm jealous of her motivation and success at keeping weight off. 
    Posted by loves2shop4shoes[/QUOTE]

    Thank you for letting me know. I hope when I post it doesn't come off as bragging. I really don't want it to seem that way. As much as I am proud of what I've done, it's also incredibly embarrassing that I let myself go that far.

    And I'm not as motivated as you think, either, lol that's why I need the daily thread. It helps me so much. And despite the embarrassment, I do like to share what I've done because I think it makes it easier for others to open up about their own experiences and then we can talk openly and help each other. I am a big believer in support systems and that's what I had hoped to create with the daily threads.

    I truly do not want to make anyone feel bad about themselves in any way. People come in to the threads and admit that they haven't done anything, or they got off track with eating, but I think it helps us to share that side of it too and then we can move on. So you're always welcome to come and share, no matter what you did or did not do, and we're also always here to motivate or help with anything if needed, or if you'd rather not, that's alright too and I'll keep my workout/diet stuff to that one thread.

    That's way longer than I thought, but I ramble a lot.

    I love you and I don't think you are an outcast.  You have had a tough week, hell a tough month and I am proud of you for being so strong.  I think that if your mom causes so many problems you should start thinking about cutting her out.  I know family is imporant to you but it might be worth thinking about.   <3

    I confess I've been following this thread for awhile in bed on my phone, but I was too lazy to get up and turn on my laptop so I could actually post.

    I confess I've been going on TK on my phone way too often, I feel like I never post.  Stupid phone.

    I actually like reading WR posts.  I used to avoid them because I would get all jealous but now I enjoy seeing them.  So post more ladies!!  

    Lastly I confess that I've been home for days from our trip to Ontario and have yet to fully unpack.  I'm lazy.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Confessions : Irish, I know you've had a rough week, but I'm with Raven on this.  It seems like every week you have something really negative to say against your mom, and it can't be healthy for you to continue to have this sort of relationship with her.   I didn't get along with my mom for pretty much ever.  We get along great now because we limit our contact to maybe once or twice a month (oh and she stopped drinking, which probably helped).  I don't have the relationship that other girls have with their mothers, and that's totally fine with me.  I'd rather have what we have now than the screaming, fighting, crying relationship we used to have.

    I agree. The problems are my sisters (9 & 19), & the fact of no matter how far i push her out our cut her out, she wedges back in. Family health issues bring us back, etc. Family means a lot to me, and i have tried for years to make it work. Trying to find a happy medium isn't working

  • Aww, you girls are making me blush.  I think you are all beautiful too.  Seriously.

    I confess that I like everyone on this board.  I may not always agree with everyone, and there may be times I think someone overreacts a bit, but I think it would make for a pretty boring board if we all agreed on everything all the time.  Each person brings something unique, whether its brutal honesty, being the nice person, etc and I think it just works.
