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.

Threeopolis: 399-300 pounds

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

SF=sugar free

FF=fat free

PS=plastics (skin removal and lifts of various parts)

TT=many things, must be defined by context. Can be Thinner times, TT (T-T,

T2)=our TT love monkey, OR tummy tuck

Hell Week=the first week (or 2) after bypass surgery, when everything hurts and

BMI=body mass index

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 was wondering what an OP was.............

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

You know what I just realized? You all use op here for operation. Maybe that's why it's not used! LOLOL :D

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

OP=original post, or original poster

Lol, I had forgotten about Ocean Pacific, the original OP. :)
