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.
