KD,

At the end of the day, no matter what is served to us, it is us who are responsible for our weight. It is up to us to keep ourselves in check and care enough to want to stay within a normal healthy weight range.

It is time to own up, time to take responsibility for our actions, we are fat because we chose to be so, not because someone enticed us with an extra helping of gravy or bacon, or any other food.

As to your family not being overweight, I'd guess that it's because they were mobile ;). They were moving and working hard, a lot more than we do today. Americans are a spoiled society, I doubt that there is a lazier nation on the globe.

Here some more info on obesity:

152 160 168 176 184 192 / 200 208 216 224 232 / 240

These are the ideal weights for a person 6'3" tall. The slashes are at ideal/overweight and overweight/obese.

When I was 18 I was 195 pounds dripping wet and fit a 32" waist. I was skinny. I was also on the OUTSIDE of healthy? Not a chance. 152# would be emaciated. Even after a week in the hospital with pneumonia I never went below 180#. Right now I'm 220# and feel that 200# is my ideal weight.....for an active 50 year old male at 6'3" My doctor agrees-and she is a stickler for fitness. That would essentially be my 'fighting weight' from 18.

These charts need rethinking. The upper and middle weights seem to be accurate, but the lower weights seem to beast apply to women with their smaller frames. ANY male my height I've ever met that was lower than 200# seemed underweight.

Well, Dave and I had a morbidly obese friend until early Saturday morning. She was so nice to everyone, a really great person, and had just started a diet and low impact water aerobics maybe a month ago. She was only forty years old, and the last thing she saig on fb was about being breathless from climbing the stairs. She thought she had the flu or a cold all week, and then she was gone before 7:30 Saturday morning, due to heart failure, and despite a health problemsthat were life threatening last year, she did not stop smoking. I can't say if she had started dieting over a year ago, maybe she would still be alive, or maybe just put off death another few years, not sure.

Addiction, pure and simple. Look at Carnie Wilson. She just had her second lap-band surgery.

TBR - yes, look at the Dollar Menus. You can feed a family very cheaply on high fat, high calorie, chemically laden fast food. I see kids stopping by McDonald's or Dairy Queen after school for one of the mocha frappe drinks as a snack. 560 calories for a medium at McDonald's, 870 calories for a caramel moolatte at Dairy Queen!

It has been the policy of the US government since the Great Depression to have available to the US population an abundance of cheap calories.

Of course people have eating disorders just like people have body dysmorphic issues who spend thousands of dollars trying to keep from aging when all they are doing is making themselves look like fools to the rest of the world. It's all quite sad. The person who eats too much for comfort and the person who vists the plastics doctor for comfort. Both are extremes that are pathetic.

I agree with that Joan, but out of shape or a little overweight is different than being obese or morbidly obese. The majority of people who are 100, 200, 300 and more pounds overweight cannot be that size without eating in an out of control manner. Unless we're also talking about Food Addiction as an illness... I believe that's real and an awful problem, many don't. I have alot of sympathy for people who struggle with obesity.
