Ugh, my brother is dating somebody that has a daughter named "Nevaeh".  I never met her but knowing him, I don't think I want to.

And on a related note, I didn't realize we named our son after the Patron Saint of Brewers until we got over here to France and saw his name on wine bottles and some road signs in Nice.....

Jument: She looks awesome in the selfie shot but she also looks a little too thin for 155... pixels, shoop, etc.

And what is a "a personal shopper at a supermarket"?


Her job is basically to shop for groceries for people who can't do it themselves, whether because they're too busy or not healthy enough to do so. She gets their lists and shops for them, and she's empowered to make decisions based on the list rather than just blindly following the list item-for-item. If I'm correct, she probably also gets really general requests like "I'm planning a party, so I need snacks, drinks, and other party items." and must interpret the request by purchasing what she thinks they'd need or want.

I knew a personal shopper, though she did most of her shopping in a department store. She had several clients who were wealthy workaholics. They didn't have time to go shopping, so she would buy all their clothes, household items, etc. based on the general requests of her clients. She'd get an agenda that would include things like "I'm expected at a fundraiser this week. I need a new outfit for this event."  or "Husband says TV too small; Find a bigger one under $1000." or "Monthly makeup supply. Extra lipstick this month, no eye shadow needed, the rest as usual."

And yes, she made a very good living just shopping on behalf of other people.

Names used to be based on family history, lineage, whatever.  Not just "I'll make up whatever shiat I feel like and saddle my kid with it until they are old enough to have it legally changed or become a stripper"

Okay, Smith for example was a trade, Johnson was the son of John. But how in the
 hell do you end of a family name like "Dickinson?"

Dickinson literally means "son of Dick", Dick being the diminutive of Richard.  Pretty common stuff.


Don't skirt the issue -- that's "son of Dickin'" and you know it.

Um... Hell?

And why don't people realize that love spelled backwards is evil phonetically?  "Evol"  But everyone wants to be clever and have a mirror image of "LOVE" when they spell "evolution".  Maybe it's a creationism joke, but I don't have that much faith in Ron Paul and health food companies.

Not to mention that one good day at church and she might send herself back to her home dimension.  Anybody think of that?  No, superman doesn't even have to do any trickery, just be like "let us pray" and BAM, game over.

AverageAmericanGuy: So back to her pre-baby marriage weight, then?


So glad my wife and I are vain. I couldn't imagine farking her if she ever put on a 100lbs, or even 50lbs.

As for the lady in the article: congrats, especially if it wasn't to fark someone else. No, really. She did a great thing. Too many Americans are fat. I don't even mean an extra 10lbs or so. Too many Americans are packing an extra 30lbs+ on their frames. Quit shoving the greasy / fried / sugared / junk food in your mouths larda$$es. Go take a walk and eat some balanced farking meals.

I can never forget the difference in my friend: 155lbs to 125lbs. She did it by walking, not eating total shiat, and not drinking sugar water everyday. Now she's a total hottie, especially for 37 when most women her age begin to look like bloated whales.

Fat is a choice for better than 85% of people.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: I know what it is.  It still sucks as a name.  There is nothing 'cool' about it.  It ranks right up there with other "ethnic" names like Shanequeh, Dis'mennet etc. You may like it, that's your right, as it is my right to say it's silly.

Names used to be based on family history, lineage, whatever.  Not just "I'll make up whatever shiat I feel like and saddle my kid with it until they are old enough to have it legally changed or become a stripper"


I know what you mean. I used to work training kids in sports. I had a terrible time with names, but managed to work on improving it so that by the second session, I could name each kid perfectly. Then I got a group of kids from the "ethnic" section of the neighborhood. Not one generic name in the bunch. Each one a Shanequa or a LaShandre. For the whole 10 weeks I was working with them, I couldn't remember any one of their names. It still came down to, "Ok, you and you go there, you go there..."

"I would eat when I was bored. I'd eat three huge meals a day, and then snack in between. Sad or happy, I'd turn to food for everything."

Takes personal responsibility for her condition, admits it's her own fault for stuffing her fat farking face all the time, and changes? Hot damn, that's a novelty.

Oh god damn it

Came to say this, glad it's been covered.

Seriously lady, good for you, but gotdammit, pick a real name.

It's Heaven spelled backwards. It's pretty cool as a new kind of name, you know. It's not just some illiterate made up Afrobabble or pretend "Celtic" name with likewise-illiterate supernumerary vowels.


And It's cross-racial, cross cultural- A very good example of how the melting pot that is the USA can bring forth new kinds of expression that are affirmative and uplifting. We used to take pride in doing that, as a country.

Exactly. In our family, there are no Caiden, Jayden, MacKenzie, Neveah, Destiny McStripperPole Skankycooch (yep, that was a direct reference to Miley Cyrus). We have blacks (they aren't fans of the PC term African American) and Arabs in our family, and not one of them has chosen bizarre, outlandish names for their kids. Most still pull from somewhere in the family lineage, and even those who don't chose normal names that don't require the you to ask five times how the hell to spell it.

She dropped the weight, good for both of them.  I hope kegel workouts are part of her routine (and that Jody had no part in any of this).

Sadly, in my family we now have a Rylan, Brayden, (it's the spelling that gets me on that one), and a MacKenzie.  (which although I'm showing my age, will always be that Budweiser dog).

I can only shake my head and keep my mouth shut.  They're my great nephews, but not my kids, so I get no say, and I'm not ever going to voice my feelings out loud to anyone in the family about it.

But in a family of Ed, Joyce, Patricia, Ron, Jennifer, Chad, Steve, etc, they kind of stand out......*sigh*

Now, if she gains the weight back because he treats her like crap and undermines her self-esteem at every turn, that wouldn't surprise me either (seen that happen, too).

The moment he leaves she gets her shiat togethor?  Yea, he's plays a role in this. He eats Ice cream and cake in front of her? Honestly  that's a dick move.

I applaud her losing the weight and eating healthy. But she's either fat or divorced in a year becasue he undermines her, or he likes the fatties, or she starts seeing new options in her life.

Do names make a difference?
Hell yes.

I have one of those confusing unisex names. Like Bailey, Carmen, Dana or Jordan (and yes, I know men and women for each of these names). Mine is more common among women in certain parts of the US, sort of like Stacy, Tracy and Lynn (also names of men - like Stacy Keach, Tracy Morgan, Lynn Swann, etc.) even though it is also very traditional in it's origin like Michael, Thomas, Victoria and Ellen.

And here's what I can tell you: When I switched to using my middle name, which is very masculine in it's use and very traditional name, it made a huge difference in how people perceived me and what options they extended to me by name alone. Will I ever go back to using my real first name? Nope.

And parents should know better. Stupid sounding names will equal harassment and embarrassment for your child, resulting in possible self-esteem issues, depression, and the associated stunted success in life. Some kids are smart enough to hide their real names and use something more traditional and carry that forward as an adult and it actually opens doors for them as well.
Thnk about that before giving your baby some stupid name such as "Shi'Thead As;shole Moran:"

1) Yep, that's how you should respond.
2) And in 20-40 years Brayden is going to be saying the same thing about the next name trend. Circle of life, yo.  I don't know an Ed younger than 30, Until the 20th century Chad was uncommon, same with Jennifer.  So it goes.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: Until the 20th century Chad was uncommon, same with Jennifer.


true enough.  I have nothing against those particular names, they can be derivatives of older names like Jennifer (Gwenhwyfar)is, but they're not.  But a giant......meh.

I have a fairly old root first name, one that was given to boys in its day (17th century).  I'm a girl, and a guy with my name would get funny looks.  It's not a gender neutral name like discussed above.  Anything from 19th century on its been a girl name.  Things change, I know.  but spelling a word backwards and calling it a new name doesn't wash with me.

Well good on her, I'm sure she feels much more healthy just cutting out all the junk food, with weight loss being the happy bonus for her. But...

I wonder if the hubby will be happy? I'm thinking if they have been together since HS and she was always overweight, there is a chance he's a chubby chaser. So, if he has that particular taste and she has changed her physique that drastically I wonder if it will change their relationship dynamic?

Look at the "after" picture with her husband home from deployment.  Bear in mind he is back recently enough to be in fatigues and that appears to be an airport.  She is straight lipped with a 1000-yard stare.

I know, I am cold-blooded about this stuff, but I have watched this script play out a few times.  If they stay together, she'll be fat again.  If she keeps it off, he won't know how to deal with a woman who feels good about herself, and he'll walk.  I didn't catch what his MOS was, but maybe if he is a medic, he really is that nice to appreciate the new, thinner look without getting all passive-aggressive about it, but if he is almost any other specialty, there is a divorce on the horizon, or baby will get back again.

The nonstop weight obsession for people who have to work hard at keeping it off can be extremely taxing on a partner.  Especially one who didn't care in the first place.
