I have a 14 year old who text all the time. However she laughs at me when I try to use some of her abbreviations. I have learned the following:
LOL : laughing out loud
TMI: Too much information
ROTFL; Rolling on the floor laughing
KK: Okay Cool
OMG: Oh My Gosh
TTYL: Talk To You Later
BRB: Be right back
I love to send her a text for fun with one of my own and she always text back Mom what are you saying.. It's fun to keep them in line. emoticon Loving it! emoticon

Here are a few others, some are rather obvious, but some not so much.

TBH - to be honest

IMO - in my opinion

RQ - real quick

LQTM - laughing quietly to myself

TMI - too much info

TL;DR - too long; didn't read

AFAIK - as far as I know

BC - because

w/ - with

CMIIW - correct me if i'm wrong

DQMOT - don't quote me on this

FICCL - frankly, I couldn't care less

JK/JK - just kidding/playing

TY - thank you

TYVM - thank you very much

SO - significant other

QFT - quoted for truth

QFI - quoted for idiocy (or irony)



Never make someone a priority, when all you are to them is an option.

I was losing very slowly. I had plugged my goal information and allowed two years to lose the weight I wanted. This gave me too many daily calories. I went to my goals and changed the calorie range to 1200 to 1500 and started losing.

The scale doesn't measure improved health, reduced pain, and a better lifestyle.

At least you are losing. I get so depressed because I haven't lost anything in 2 months. I'm learning I just don't drink enough water. I'm really trying to follow the food plan. This week I have not gone off of it at all. Oh well, time will tell. Maybe my system just needs to catch up.

The things you want are always possible; it is just that the way to get them is not always apparent. The only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life is you, and that can be a considerable obstacle because you carry the baggage of insecurities and past experience.

many of these are most assuredly new to me since I am mainly use to myspace or email slang and that took awhile to learn also. I actually thought at one time many many years ago that BRB meant BathRoomBreak LOL thanks for making it easy for me to understand the lingo here, and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

This thread is great. I'm not a newbie to SP or this team, but there were some abbreviations that I never knew. Working in the atmosphere I do, we don't use them so when I type I just use to using the entire word. But as I read through this tread many post became so clear.

Thanks again.

I have a habit of just plugging acronyms into Google and seeing what comes up. I think that may work better for IM-speak than SparkPeople jargon, though.

Thanks. I have trouble remembering what the different abbreviationsa mean, so I copied them all and pasted them to a Word document. I plan on printing it out and taping it to the computer desk for a quick and easy reference.

I had a SP mail asking about some of the abbreviations that we use. I know we did this a few months ago, but it may be time to do it again.

If you know of any abbreviations that are frequently used on SP, please add to this thread.
Here's the one's I can think of:

SP - Spark People
DH - Dear Husband
DD - Dear Daughter
DS - Dear Son
MIL - Mother in Law
SIL - Sister in Law
WATP - Walk Away the Pounds (A workout video that many of us use)
YBB - Yoga Booty Ballet (Another workout video series)
SW - Starting weight
CW - Current weight
GW - Goal weight
