As always you put quite elloquently into words what my sub-par vernacular can not state in your newest post Brother Obesus. By the way check out the new profile pic, all I need is to trade my car for a microphone and get a car a the Police auction...

I joined months ago and have been lurking for years, and I thought I'd finally introduce myself officially. I just moved to Arizona in August after living in South Carolina for most of my life.

Indeed -- welcome to non-lurkerdom. It's also nice to see a new face here not from Europe or the East Coast for a change. :)

That is just such a great image! It has a very "Blues Brothers" feeling to it and...hey! I just had a wild and crazy premonition type of Fat Tantric Holy Man type premonition....maybe, just maybe, we are on a MISSION here! There must be an orphanage around somewhere.....!!! :D :bow:
Oh...I know the confidence thing is important but the real issue is that most "normie" women won't even give you the time of day and will not even consider you as a potential date if you are fat...it is more about prejudicial attitudes against fat...so spreading size acceptance into normie culture on their own ground is the MISSION! Huzzah! :D Hence, I am going to do something that I thought I would never ever ever do again...I am rejoining NAAFA for the activism....aieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! :eek:

how are you defining "normie" :p and if normie means below size 18 then aren't you just as prejudiced as these normies of which you speak?

By "normie" I mean women who have not self-identified as Fat Female Admirers or who have not made the mental transition to a conscious preference for fat men or dislike fat men. Has nothing to do with size whatsoever...but then I am viciously prejudiced against half the known Universe and I have a particularly unreasoning hatred of gravity.

I notice from your Myspace thingy that you are interested in Substance Abuse Treatment, the Crusades, and a host of things...I am the administrative manager for the Mental Health Component of one of California's largest substance abuse agencies! Oh, and I am a graduate of U.C. Berkeley in Medieval Art History...small world and interesting combo! Kewl!

thanks for taking a look at my myspace thingy- i screwed something up and now can no longer design the page to look good but what can you do?

yes i got interested in becoming a counselor through my own experience with a 12 step recovery program. i was introduced to the program by a lutheran pastor who talked about "behavioral addictions" - anger, unforgiveness, shopping, things that are not chemical like drugs and alcohol. i had never heard of this concept before and was curious and i guess ready to rid myself of the burden of so much anger and went to a meeting. what an amazing experience. i used to go to a pentecostal church that was really big on "do it cause God said so" which i know if right but not a concept i accepted so easily- forgive because God said to and that is that- nope- not happening sorry. this meeting was nothing like i had ever seen - i went in on the defensive and found it was unnecessary. i told my story and heard things like- oh yea i know that feeling- yea that's how i felt when... - and a lot of nodding of heads. i couldnt believe it, these were women who were very involved with the church and they were also down to my level as well. and i didn't hear about how i HAD to do anything. it was the beginning of my road of healing and i swore that i wanted to pass that along. i had done other healing programs as well with similar result. i want to give to others what these women had giving to me- a compassionate ear and the hope that there is hope.
so knowing that there are a lot of people who do not believe in God i want to learn the secular methods to be able to help religious as well as nonreligious folk. so here i am going to john jay college and hopefully i can be useful to someone somewhere.

so tell me ... when did you first notice this hatred of gravity?

You got some excellent fashion sense going on over there General Jorge...that is a Kewl idea! I am thinking I needs to get me a fabulous black suit...since all that I have left are my nursey-type scrubs and a pair of size 56 jeans! I will talk to my people in my fiscal department! :D Then, the prescription shades...oooh, I will have to take out a loan for those! ;) The hat I can get second hand, but I have a really really big head! ROFL :cool:

I do a lot of work with spirituality and Higher Power in my groups with our dually-diagnosed folks and I have the personal recovery experience to understand that this is the anchor for the whole process! Kudos to you for going into the field to help others...it is a wonderful way to support your own recovery while you help the whole community! I went through Therapeutic Community experience, based on the old Synanon model, but much updated and gentler...still, the whole concept of a "family" of addicts living with and working with each other on a daily basis is really powerful. We are seeing more and more people with serious mental health problems coming in every day and I started my work with Psychology to better understand their problems. A lot of addictive behavior is obsessive compulsive at root and getting the tools to manage it through cognitive-behavioral means is a fascinating thing. I wish you the best with your education and if I can ever help you with anything like resources or places to find good information, let me know!
The gravity thing.....well, when I topped over 300 pounds, I said to myself...this gravity stuff is waaaaaay over-rated! Whenever a pencil or something drops to the floor and I have to bend over to pick it up, the belly is not so happy with the situation and the back is a tad flustered!!! Muttering follows. :D

Hello. Was looking around and it seems this be an appropriate place for me to say hello.

There are sooooo many superheroes on the thread and super-villians and even plain folks! :D General Jorge, it is always a good thing when you come back from your galactic missions to bring us tidings from the far-off colony worlds. The Boarders grow weary and tired and more rag-tag by the second...but there is always hope! AHA!:bow:

One of our clinical specialists comes in and sees me in my all black nurse scrubs and jet black t-shirt with black glasses and says to me..."Hey, is it Hopalong Cassidy day here or something?" Oooooooh, I was frammoushed, but I grinned!:bow:
