First I hate reality TV shows. I never post any Diaries here about weight lose cause when I did that didn't work out so well. My ideas on weight lost might be a little militant. I had to walk away from Jamie's show three times in an hour cause I was crying. It was hard to watch. Hard to watch! Get through this, I dare you.

At another time in my life I was a 100 pounds heavier. Being a 5'4 dude that was a lot of weight to carry around.  It took a lot of effort for me to learn how to get my weight to 130. A lot.

Everybody in my family is obese. By obese I mean fat. 50+ pounds. Often a lot more than that. In this Jamie Oliver show he asks a group of kids what he is holding up. They are tomatoes. They think they are potatoes. In another scene he serves up some food and is told the children are not allowed to have forks or knives.

We can't allow this to pass.

We've had a very welcome debate in our nation about health care. We ought to have the same debate about what people eat. My mother is maybe 125 pounds overweight. She is eating herself to death. When my mom comes to my house she "travels" with multiple two liters of soda.

Ponder that for a second. She so can't imagine a world where there isn't soda that she travels with it.

I want to live a really long life. I want you to live a long life. This ain't helping much.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
