Any of you old timers want to explain about what the Ducksack Club is, and Gym Rats and how one becomes a member? The Bears have been covered but these others could also use explanation. Thanks. this is a great thread.

Ducksack club is for those that own and live in our Ducksacks... PM duckie for a number.. though she's lame about getting back to you.:rolleyes::P

Gym Rats are those that have a goal to exercise, even if it's walking around the block.. PM Porche for a number. He also tends to come and go infrequently these days so it might take a little bit of time to get a number there.

Thanks for that info, Misty. I wondered about some of those and did not know who was the keeper of each. There may even be another one or two but I am being lazy. Will try to remember to ask in here when I come across them.

A few more abbreviations to add to the list:

VSG-vertical sleeve gastrectomy-sleevers don't get rerouted or banded, they get most of stomach removed then are stapled into a tube shaped "sleeve"

VBG-vertical banded gastrectomy-involves banding, is not same as sleeve gastrectomy

Sleevers-had VSG

Sleeve sister-female meber who also had VSG

Twoterville: 299 -200 pounds

Threeopolis: 399-300 pounds

CIB: Carnation Instant Breakfast

I wondered what Nut was? thanks for clarifying that for me. I thought it was something to do with mental illness! lol

Go ahead and add any you see missing! :) (Including definitions!)

I'm not too familiar with the PB as productive burp. To me- PB means either probiotics (pb8 brand) or the powdered peanut butter- (pb2- brand) so it's good to add them.

Bumping it up so that it's on the list so new people see it.. many people don't think to go look at older threads, even ones that are stickied (aka always at the top of the section)

Typically posting just to bump up a thread is frowned upon.. but there are special cases, like this where it's appropriate.. new terms are rarely still added but it's nice when there's a large influx of new people to bump some of these threads back to the top again so they're found.

HTH (hope that helps :) )

I think it's "twoterland".

I know it's "tooterville" when you get into the 200's.

Thank you Corrine...

But I think we can do better than that... ;)

If losing 100 pounds puts you in the Century Club.... losing 200 pounds puts you in the Bicentennial Club....

So let it be written..... :)
