The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

I was warned...

Someone told me that there were people on the Oxygen forum that were less than friendly. I figured I would mostly lurk so I went there anyways. I was warned.

I just had my hand slapped because I don't count carbs correctly and I confuse people. This isn't the only problem I have had over there. I have asked a couple of questions, explaining that I have done a search or read the sticky but still can't find the answer to my question. Only to be told to use the search feature or read the stickies.

It seems that anyone that does things even remotely extreme, like very low carb or lots of cardio are dismissed as doing it wrong. "That's extreme, it's not necessary." I have never once told someone how to do something. I have never once said, "My way is the right way." I simply answer the question that was posted. How many carbs do you eat? How do you eat that low? I did not ask to have my WOE critiqued.

It is definitely time to move on from Oxygen. Their forum was never a good match. I don't know why I stayed around so long. There are way too many people over there who insist that there is only one way to do something and are very quick to criticize, scold and get sarcastic with those that don't fit their mold.
