"I don't want you to go through what your dad has gone through." -Dr.
So -- you KNOW I am thinking it -- I probably yelled AT THE TV.
I would like to know what happened to Rob's dad after all this crying and freaking out with the shaming of the wheel-chair. I hate when information about weight loss surgery is thrown out there to the general public like "this" without any context.
Biggest Loser, please explain. I understand that the producers like to create 'breakthrough' moments with the contestants to get them motivated and moving forward and to tear off all excuses, but why create a stigma around weight loss surgery?
I have a need for these, Bariatric Advantage. I adore citrus-y flavored vitamins. Tropical orange calcium chews in a 500 mg dose. Yes, please!
Take less - Get more! Our Calcium Citrate 500 Chewy Bite delivers 500 mg of elemental calcium as calcium citrate in a delicious chew. They also contain a full 500 IU of vitamin D3 for healthy absorption.* These chews are sugar-free and with minimal carbs, so you can get the calcium you need. Each chew is individually wrapped so you can take them with you wherever you go.
You can pre-order them here, use my validation code and I get a little credit and I love you for it. Pre-orders are shipping on October 10.
I have found myself behind folks at the grocery store lately with stacks and stacks of coupons and I don't know why I haven't been using them myself, so I started clipping. I don't get mad at having to wait behind these people -- I am usually in awe of their savings.
I can't pretend like I don't buy half of this shit because this is a "weight loss" blog because I always HAVE.
I am over that. It's been ten and a half years, kids. I am maintaining my weight loss without a stitch of "diet" food.
Mama buys some boxed food-stuffs, hell, I buy a lot of it. I live on some seriously expensive boxed frozen lunches - and I COULD USE ME SOME COUPONS, AMY'S ORGANICS!
An anti-obesity commercial from Strong4Life blames parents, for our children's obesity with a side of french fries and a dose of electronic gadgets.
Is this where I thank my parents? Uh, no.
The video (now viral!) presents a thirtysomething man (I am 35) whom played video games and ate lots of fast-food start with snapped-Mcdonald's fries from Momma.
I did not. I got super morbidly obese anyway. TAKE THAT STRONG4LIFE.
Marketers and anti-obesity advocates -- LISTEN: IT IS NOT THAT SIMPLE. Obesity is a multifaceted disease and we cannot simply lay blame on someone's mom and dad (or Mcdonald's!) and hope that that is going to fix the problem. You cannot blame - shame away a disease, it only makes this one BIGGER.
