    Ruby Ripples has passed away.

    I am so sad to hear the news of her death. She was a lovely, funny and very bright woman. Years ago when I used to chat I got to know her and she was always kind and so fun. Prayers for her family and those who loved her. Brenda

    I need help

    I am glad I was able to offer some help. How are things going for you? Any thoughts on when you will be able to move back to Texas? I am hoping and praying things are turning around for you.

    ...So I married a BBW!

    This story gives hope to the many fa's who have or likely will marry a thin woman. They can have their cake and eat it too!

    What did you buy today?

    Target is good for disposable plus size clothing. None of it is quality but it is inexpensive enough that you probably won't care. I recently bought a summer dress and light weight cardigan that should last until Labor day that were cute.

    My Big Fat Fetish: Tonight, Channel 4, 10pm

    ""But she seems like a perfectly lovely woman. And we each had our own story to tell hers is not mine, and vice versa."" I think she was honest about where her journey has taken her. It was very sad hearing from her son and the role of caregiver he has been placed in. Obviously it was not...

    Random FOODEE Thoughts and Confessions

    Depends on your audience. I usually bake from scratch but I know if I took a cake mix made cake to my in-laws they would not bat an eye, now my family would not go for a package made cake especially for the holidays. ""I confess I'm having second thoughts about using a Trader Joe's...

    Susanne Eman wants to be World's Heaviest Person.

    The reality that you fail to recognize is all those lazy undisciplined fat people left to their own devices will not gain as much weight if they are not trying to gain. Just like you hardworking, disciplined thin people will not drop even more weight unless they try to. Gradually gaining...

    Susanne Eman wants to be World's Heaviest Person.

    "Your body isn't going to know the difference of how you gained weight. If you sit around all day eating cupcakes and not moving and you do it in front of a camera with a feeder cheering you on, it's the same thing as just being plain old lazy and undisciplined and eating cupcakes because you're...

    Susanne Eman wants to be World's Heaviest Person.

    I am fat, more fat than is personally healthy for me. I have every reason to lose weight: both parents died of diabetes in their mid sixties, my sister died at 700lbs at 45 and I know I am a ticking time bomb. Yet I cannot seem to make this possible and I have gone to extreme measures. Sure...

    Dimensions Forum Members to be on The Dr. Oz Show (Thurs. 9/22/11)

    Just watched the show and was amazed that Susanne was able to keep her composure. While it is difficult for me to not fear for her because my sister who was a similar weight died at a young age, I do not see how getting bullied on a tv show is going help her "see the light".

    Would you do it?

    I did once years ago and it was a huge mistake. Not that life lesson kinda mistake but just plain stupid of me. Doors closed behind me and I could not move back for 7 years though the relationship lasted 7 months. I am now married but if I were single I would not consider a relationship with...

    How much do you think your size has influenced....

    Wow, that sounds exactly what I would have written about myself. I am glad we both are now willing to take more chances!
