Obesity in America the Outrageous Statistics

There has been a running conversation in my house about change. No, not the kind of change we were promised in the last election (and failed to get, I might mention) but a change on a much more personal level. I feel that my life has become, well less than….

So, we (I) am embarking on a world of change. I have already begun. Today I cut a tree that was bothering me from my back yard. I bought a new rug for my living room and that room will be rearranged by weeks end. I have plans to paint my office in two weeks (my next available weekend). However, it is just NOT enough.

The change I am looking for is deeper and far more personal. I read today that 3.8 million people in the United States are over the 300 lb mark!  I feel their pain! Although I am not over 300lbs, I am far closer than I am happy to admit! The article I read went on to say that in the US, the female average weighs at an unprecedented 163 lbs.

I must admit I would be happy to be weighing in at 163. Therefore, I am officially and publicly declaring it my goal!  By the Fourth of July next year, I will be average 🙂
