The advert at the top of this page was just:

"failed again ?" (pic of a lady with lettuce shoved in her mouth) ... Forget dieting and get surgery .. (with a button to click on to take you elsewhere) :eek:

I`m sorry, but how demoralising, and down right deflating is that on a diet board ? ? When people are feeling low about their weight, they need re-assurance and help changing their lifestyles, not blooming promises of quick fixes of surgery !!!!

Rany over :rolleyes:

LOL. It's targeted advertising, based on what you've clicked on or searched on google.
Mine alternates between Garmin watches and Thermobol.

??????? but i haven`t googled anything to do with surgery .. or the latest ad which is now:

"want to achieve healthy rapid weight loss like the celebs do?" !!!


**sigh** ... The last things i googled where a couple of parts for the motorbike ... a head gasket set for the car (well the haynes manual to check the bolts) ... a saddle for my horse, and the lyrics to lady gaga`s latest song (don`t ask lol) .... I just assumed these adds were on this site as it`s a slimming site ? !!

I've currently got The London Obesity Surgery ad. I've only been on the mobile version on this site for a few weeks and noticed them straight away - especially the first one you mentioned "failed again...". On mine it says ads by google so I'm guessing it's just cos I'm on this site and these companies pay for this.

It's awful true but they should just be ignored :)

Yeah I agree, I hate that ad too (the failed again one)

I seem to get it constantly these days. Occasionally I get ads for Weight Watchers or Granite Card. Not interested!

I always get the lettuce one but scroll down too fast to take in the message because the sight of it just makes me feel sick - and thankful I'm doing SW. And I do like lettuce!

Just emailed them to complain about this sickening advert :)
Apart from the fact that the young lady on this picture surely doesn't need surgery...gastric bands are (if anything) a last resort for morbidly obese people and not a quick weight loss solution.

Good for you!

It's not the type of thing you want to see when you are coming on here for weight loss SUPPORT X

Until this thread started I hadn't noticed the adverts at the top of the page - just want to get to the posts - so they don't bother me.

Doubt if there is anything to be done about it - minimins can't be run for nothing.

I've got iTunes Tune up and Barratt homes. I often get diet ones and magical weight loss pill offers. I just ignore them.

The advertising helps pay for site costs, and without it there'd be no minimins, so I just let it ride...

Same As!! Its either Dominos, weight loss surgery or the Jennifer Ellison one. I now have a giggle about it tbh.

Anna is right - someone has to pay to keep these sites up & running - I'm just glad it ain't us :)
