interesting. my first reaction was "great! more motivation to be healthy." but once i thought about it.. maybe there should be separate facilities for the obese specifically, treatment, and consideration on what being overweight really does to us as individuals, a community and health costs.
i know my #1 reason to lose my weight is to get off all these medications... this is how this report effects me.. to lose the weight, be healthy and enjoy life.
as far as people who are over 200 lbs because they are a male and are 6' 5" and an athlete... again... certain facilitators.
as long as this isn't another way to """"" control us !! """"""View Thread
