It does make one think.
I'll enjoy the holiday foods then come the day after new years hit the Gym.
San Francisco city officials are toying with popular children’s meals. The city’s Board of Supervisors passed a law cracking down on fast food chains that give away free toys with unhealthy meals for children, like the McDonald’s “Happy Meal.”
A California woman is suing McDonald's claiming the fast-food giant uses toys to market directly to young children. Monet Parham, a Sacramento, California, mother of two small children filed the lawsuit Wednesday in San Francisco along with health, nutrition and food safety advocates Center for Science in the Public Interest . CSPI is seeking court approval to proceed as a class action.
Parham, a 41-year old state employee, says her kids repeatedly ask for Happy Meals, mainly for the toys. "We have to say no to our kids so many times and McDonald's makes that so much harder to do. I object to the fact that McDonald's is getting into my kids' heads without my permission and actually changing what my kids want to eat."
To cut a long story short, I feel our benevolent leaders are using the obesity epidemic as another move to legislate how we should live our lives in accordance to their world views.
I'm not saying and posting all of this just to have some fun. I have this past year lost 34lbs. I know what it's like to be thin and in shape and over weight and depressed. I have never been obese but I could have easily slipped down that path. I started going for walks after dinner, Cutting back on snack/JUNK food. Eating more lean meats and vegetables. Less greasy fast foods/carry out. After a few weeks I lost a few pounds and started with some basic push-ups and sit-ups etc.
Ditto, mega thread slayer, i lost three stone years ago, i was 10 stone and 5 foot and spent 4 month determined to lost weight, eating fruit for breakfast etc, got down to 7 1/2 stone, felt absolutely brilliant, if you really want to you can do it, incidentally i have visited las vegas and new york, NY seemed to be full of slim beautiful people this must be the exeption to the rule, i assume. Mind you, us brits are getting bigger and bigger.

Epic thread Slayer. I hope some people can follow these examples and start losing weight today. When I got out of the army after being in Iraq for a year, I was a disgusting fat body, but now that im out and at home I have been losing weight and feel a lot healthier. I use to weight 225 now I weight 208 thanks to careful eating and exercise. $&F.

I am sick of hearing the " don't be mean to fat people" PC line. Well being nice and supportive certainly doesn't help either.
Oprah has spent 20 years talking and being supportive of people and herself about being fat, and she still is.
Peer pressure is the only way to fix the problem. It has to become unacceptable to be obese on so many levels.
On a lighter note: I think forced nudism would fix the problem pretty quickly.
