You know you guys won't be able to stop reading. :) It's like watching a slow motion car accident. You want to look away, but you can't.

So true. But this is the slowest slow motion car accident in history. *sigh*.

LOL.

I hear you, believe me. I hate myself for still reading her blog (and giving her hits) but I know I won't stop either.

Her holiday posts are always so creepily ideal, Aren't her kids mostly grown except for her girl? What's with all of the infantilization? She's talking about her kids watching Lassie (Lassie?!) and getting ready to have their Easter egg hunt. It sounds like something she dreamed up for herself, the adult child that she is. Some very strange idealization if not outright fantasy going on, and I need to bail. 

There's a theory going around that the daughter is imaginary. I did notice that one of Lyn's commenters said, "Lassie, really? Aren't all of your children grown?" And Lyn responded, "You're never too old for Lassie!" I'm not saying I believe the daughter doesn't exist but I thought it was strange Lyn didn't respond by saying they were watching Lassie for the daughter. I would think pointing out she had a young daughter would be the logical response to someone saying all your children are adults.

Either way, you are right. Lyn's idealized fantasy world revolving around her kids is very strange. Especially since two of her sons have (allegedly) done stints in prison. I think those must be the problems with the "boys" she often talks about stressing her out. I doubt those "boys" are getting all excited about an Easter egg hunt.

Drooling from this new information. Wow! I'm both completely intrigued and thoroughly creeped out at the idea of her daughter being imaginary. It would explain so much. I had a hunch her older boys were no-goodniks. Now I'm dying for more dirt/theories about this chick!

I don't particularly understand the obsession with Lyn's personal life. She clearly wants to be private and perhaps she has made up that part of her life in order to throw off suspicion about who she really is.  I have a blog and I want it to be anonymous and I am not strictly accurate and sometimes misleading so that if anyone who I might know me comes across it they may not put 2 and 2 together.  Also, it just stymies me that everyone gets caught up on that stuff because who is really to say that any blog isn't supposed to be at least, in part, an exercise in creative writing.

That said, Lyn does drive me nuts on her alleged weight loss efforts. If that is creative writing she is doing a bang up job, can't look away! Her mini vacations to hotels apparently in the somewhat local area… what is up with that? My vacations generally involve a plane, airport, pool, sightseeing.  Lyn's… hotel, buffet every single year.

Ok, WTF on the post about one bite CAN kill you. She conflates a very serious food allergy with eating a piece of a brownie if you are "on-plan." Huh?

First of all, if you know you have a seafood allergy and if your doctor told you not to eat Chinese food because there is a lot of cross-contamination, why would would you eat Chinese food? That's just dumb. Second, a seafood allergy is not the same thing as eating one bite of a brownie. One bite of a brownie will not kill you. It might set off a binge, I dunno, but kill? No. 

I don't know why she takes something that is so easy at the core (weight loss) and makes it so complicated. Now I'm not saying that losing weight is easy, it is not, but the core principles are very easy….eat less, move more. If you're honest with yourself, you will know why you are the weight you are, and you will know what you need to do to change that. No big secrets there.

I do notice that she is writing more of her stats about what she ate…so I guess we can assume that when she doesn't do that, she is totally off-plan.

And just because I have to use this new emoticon…

Aren't you the person who had a relationship with Lyn outside of her blog? It sounds like you are confirming that Lyn's daughter is made up.

Also, if Lyn just wanted to remain anonymous she would just say she had a daughter and leave it at that. That would serve the purpose as far as privacy goes. She would not invent serious medical issues and stories about what she feeds her, how she takes her swimming, what they do together, etc. That would serve no purpose except to create a fantasy. It becomes pathological at that point.

I hadn't read this blog until now…I just spend a good amount of time reading through the archives. Wow. This blog is all sorts of messed up. I'm sure I'm repeating what's already been discussed to death in the other thread, but I'm shocked by how few calories she eats. NO ONE should be eating 800-1000 calories a day. Not only is she starving herself, but pre-packaged diet foods are NOT healthy, and she seems to think she eats a healthy, whole-foods diet.

There was one post where she talked about telling her doctor about Medifast, and the doctor said to keep doing it if she was losing weight. I absolutely can't believe that a doctor would encourage that behavior. Until she's truly eating a whole-foods, healthy diet with enough calories, she's going to keep weight cycling.

LOL if you think she actually eats 800-1000 calories a day I have a great used Blackberry to sell you.  It costs 800 million dollars.  You know, roughly.

 

The human body doesn't work that way.  There's no way in HELL Lyn eats what she says she eats.

Good point. With her binge eating, she's probably eating more than that daily. i don't like that she's advocating eating 800-1000 calories a day, though.
