At what point will we figure out that MOST problems we have are OUR fault - OUR problems to FIX and STOP asking government to stop us from hurting ourselves....................and at what final cost \:\(

This nation is doomed \:\( This direction is sending our once great nation right down the crapper \:\(

Just put the supersized soda down and step away from the double cheeseburger.

I agree! I've had a weight problem for 15 yrs out of 50 resulting from: I stopped exercising and began sitting on my lazy carcass \:D and it was NEVER the governments problem - it was never a disease - it was the plumb lazy syndrome \:D
I've overcome it 100% once - slipped back just a little after my car wreck and am headed back to RIGHT again now with short/effective 2@day workouts.

Lazy normally produces a real sorry end result and I'm sure sorry to here that our government now thinks Lazy is a disease \:\(

What bothers me just as bad is the point at which a person is considered obese.
That and the publically accepted prejudice / ridicule against people who are not "skinny".

Its all good though.

(Disclaimer : That was not pointed at you Kimber or anyone in particular, just how it is.)

Liberalism is a disease. It's the cancer that infects this country with these bogus agenda-based decisions. Liberalism is terminal.

Is it airborn? Can it be spread through contact? Will I get it just by being in a room with other fat people? Will condoms prevent its spread? I don't want to catch the Obese.

I personally thought being obese was the cause of certain diseases, not the actual disease itself.

See this post by BSK about the body characteristics of a whitetail buck as he ages. "Thicker body" and "Sagging belly" are normal. Why shouldn't we immitate the very animals we all love so much after pursuing them for years?! \:\)

Oh I totally agree..for instance, with a 33" waist - weighing in at near 200lbs a little over a year ago and a very low body fat %, the "scale" for our health ins review at work rated me as obese \:\( ... I could have lost 20 but carry a lot of muscle mass too that they see as weight/obesity
