Podmate -- another person who had surgery the same day as you.

Great idea Bridget! If they didn't have this already, they should put this in that "newbie" section that I think Gwen put together.

Toony actually had to come up with this one on my behalf when I hit 399.5. There aren't a lot of people here on TT who are celebrating being in the 300s - most are eager to get out of this town and hit Twoterville! :P

Thanks for this! Could it be b/c of my question about onederland? hehehe :P What the OP should do is edit her post (if possible) and add all our abbreviations! :P

Not sure this was mentioned: WLS-weight loss surgery. OP-original poster

I am a member on TOO many forums. LOL I started out on Yorkshire Terrier forums, and even own my own. :D When I started seriously thinking about WLS I decided to check out the weight loss forums. Only people who are going through your problems can totally understand. :o

I was thinking the same thing. However, I have seen OP used as "original poster" or "original post" in forums before.
