I get what you are saying, and I agree. I hope it didn't come across as an attack. My question was more to the moderators/Conrad because in other threads peoples posts have been deleted for mentioning numbers related to weight loss and in other threads we have been told up front not to mention ANY numbers....so Im curious from a moderator standpoint how this thread is any different? If you see what I mean. Im all for accepting ones self bigger or smaller....I was just pointing out the inconsistency of the rules.Let's see if I word this correctly this time:
This is supposed to be a site where you can be accepted just the way you are. If a new person wants to accept themselves and see's thread after thread of "I was 350, now I'm 280 and I look better than ever" then they're going to start thinking "maybe I should lose weight if it'll make me look better". How are the rest of us supposed to support people just how they are when they want to be thinner?
Now if someone needs to lose weight for health reasons, that's different. I'd rather have my friends alive so you'll never see me attack someone with diabetes or bad knees that have to lose weight to simply walk or stay alive.
Besides, this thread is about posting your highest weight....for a lot of people they're not at their highest weight so there's no need to attack them for it.
