See that up there..that is why I adore Karen..

I wanna dance with you Karen! and send me a list of every thing you are doing diet/movement wise??? please?  you have no clue far I have to go to get back to me..and it isn't about weight so much as it's about strength.  

Prayers get answered is very strange ways..

As for John...I have been reading your threads for awhile and I find myself time and time again refraining from commenting because the only comment I find myself wanting to leave is a plea for clarification...I personally think you are vague intentionally..and it drives me insane..but I suppose that is a me issue.

Alright, so I failed to notice the other two pages of responses before I posted...meh..

On the issues of how doctors treat you when you are overweight...

My sister went to the doc for a check on her epilepsy..new doc and all...and she was told, by the doc, she would have less maybe no seizures if she lost weight...

The best part?  She was a thin woman until she was put on Depakote (sp?) for her epilepsy..

Mood stabilizers and other drugs used for bi-polar, ADHD, Childhood arthritis, and epilepsy can, and most often do, have the side effect of weight gain.  More people (esp. children) are taking these kind of drugs then they did a few decades ago...

Maybe not the total picture, but certainly could be a part.  At least I think so.

According to science man has not changed
biologically for some 100,000 years.  It is
only recently that he has on mass started breaking
chairs his even well off ancestors sat comfortably in
merely by sitting down.

You are right that we have not got our second head yet like somewhere the snakes showed. But it so frequently happens that single gene is added on or lost or depressed or over-expressed...due to anything including man-made disaster like A-bomb...don't presume biological change, such as that, if I was a Buddhist, when I became a pig next turn, I would be out off possibility of Obesity.

John has a tendency to be overly obscure with his replies.

He's just saying that humans are getting progressively fatter. And that we are now breaking chairs by being too heavy when our ancestors did not. This is a reference to what he said earlier about cruise ships making their seats stronger.

“Suddenly a giant Cabbage Patch Doll jumps out from behind the shower curtain and grabs him violently.”

Chairs used to be made out of solid wood now they are made of  all Man-made  materials.

Thank you Sir Huan Yi for the information and the link.

the overweight of Children, the term to use

1. as for the kid... Physical activity will be influenced if two heavy... means lossing lots of fun and get teased by other kids. so it does not matter what term and whoever uses. they can not change the situation.

2. as for the parents...they want to hear that their children are normal even they are not. They wish that their children were normal out of love. for their sensitivity? Parents shall be taught the possible consequence of overweight. which term? they can understand all.

3. as for the doctors.... they can say anything to please their patients as long as they do not ignore the symptoms and give out good warning and proper treatment. They could call Aids virus a love-bug , a cancer a dancing spider.

4. As for CDC and AMA,  shall really seriously define each term based on all research data and a clear explanation. The case of ADD/ADHd has hurt many innocent children.

my thought
