A Giant Can of Worms

July 27th

Goodness gracious. I seemed to have started quite the conversation about our eating habits and obesity in America. I thank everyone for their comments. Obviously, our culture caters to “bigger is better.” It is difficult to fight.

Anyway — thank you! I have enjoyed reading what you’ve had to say; it makes me feel better we are all thinking about this and trying to figure out how to make changes in our own lives for the better.

  1. Guess you struck a nerve, eh? (in a good way…)

  2. you may have opened it, but regardless of appetites, i don’t think anyone will help themselves to any of your worms. thank you very much.

  3. Wow! I had to go back & read the comments 🙂 People get upset when “touchy” subjects are brought up, but if we don’t talk about it & raise awareness then problems continue. Keep being yourself – an honest, educated, opiniated, caring person. If that pisses people off then they aren’t worth having around anyway. I wanted to comment on one thing – one of the commenters mentioned overweight kids. I think awareness needs to be raised about P.E. classes being cut in schools, along w/recess time. I know one elementary child who only has P.E. class twice each six weeks! How insane is that??? You’d think teachers would be all for time that allows kids to burn off some energy!

  4. Wow, what a wonderful topic I missed yesterday! I remember coming back from Nicaragua and going into Walmart for the first time. I litterally cried the whole time we were there and my MIL just couldnt understand what was wrong with me. Talk about sensory overload…too many colors, too many choices. I mean aisles and aisles of toys when children in the country I had just come from counted themselves lucky to have a soccer ball for the whole street to share. Amazing, just amazing! Thank you for putting your thoughts down for everyone to think about. Muchas Gracias!
