America, Land of the Fatties, Home of the Bariatric

Two recent stories, thanks to Ginger and Sploid:

Hospitals changing to accommodate increase in morbidly obese patients
Vegas’s new Hefty Ambulance

They kinda speak for themselves, but I also realized this morning that I am down 17 pounds from my peak weight, about 5 or 6 years ago. Put that in yer middle-aged spread and smoke it.

    what is your secret? my own middle age belly is out of control.

    Eat the occasional salad, more whole grains, less refined sugar (though decidedly not zero), reduce portion sizes occasionally, and get my ass off the couch occasionally for a little exercise–not a lot, just a bit.

    No secret, just substitution, moderation, and activity.

  3. Sandy says:

    Oh and some of the activity involves weights or pushups to keep muscle mass up, and hence metabolism. I’m hardly cut or muscular, but even a little bit helps.
