Every first Wednesday of each month (always at noon, pst), our show is dedicated to bariatric, weight loss surgery, and weight loss topics.  This week, my good friend Dagny Kight will be filling in as host for me. Dagny is an active health and wellness advocate and the author of Powerful Hunger.

Today's program is all about well-known sayings and what they mean to you, or how the make you feel, and we'd love for you to discuss this on the show.  The phone line and live chat will be open that day, or you may leave comments on the blog here.  Examples:

  • We've all heard "Diets don't work." What do you think most people think of when they hear that phrase? Do they take it literally? What does it mean to you?  
  • .A widely-recommended weight loss strategy is "Think like a thin person." How does that make you feel? Do you think it's a legitimate strategy for losing weight? How DO thin people think??
  • When people hear "Weight is not an indicator of health" they often interpret that in different ways. What does it mean to you? What do you think most people believe it means? 
  • What do you think people mean when they say "Weight loss surgery is the easy way out. It's cheating." Why do you think people use this as an insult? There are a lot of angles to consider with this one! 
  • What does "Fat Acceptance" mean to you? It's closely associated with "Health at Every Size." The Association for Size Diversity and Health lays out specific principles for FA and HAES but they are interpreted many different ways. Tell us what they mean to you and how you think others view FA and HAES.
