Report card first. Weight is down this morning! WOO HOOO! I've calculated my food for the day and I'm good! (even including dinner). Yeah, I may be a bit high on my sodium intake today...but I'm not going to stress over that because everything else looks pretty good. :-)

The other night Todd was flipping through the channels and for some reason stopped on a show about morbidly obese people. We are talking half ton sized people! It was saddening to see the shape that these poor people were in. They had one guy that the whole fire department was there trying to get him out of his bed and to the hospital. After much work they tried to take him through the door...the put straps around him and tried to pull the fat in tight to squeeze him through the door. That wasn't enough. The literally ended up tearing out walls in his house! I want to say how does one get to that point?? But in the same breath say, "I was on my way...I was 315 pounds! My saving grace is that even at that weight I was still quite mobile and somewhat active." But where is that line from obese to being in dire straits? That line of where you are overweight/obese and then voila, you are stuck in your room, with 10-15 muscled men trying to get you not only out of your bed but out of your room (hey, I kinda like the thought of the 10-15 muscled men in my bed!!!...ok, I'm sorry this is a serious paragraph)? There has to be a line. And how does one cross it without realizing that the are in some serious trouble?????

So if you've read this far, you're probably wondering what deep thought that paragraph was leading up to? Well, have I got a surprise for you....NOTHING! Just random thought flitting through my head. tee hee hee

Good for you on the loss. Always nice to see the downward trend, isn't it?

I, too, am not too put off by the possibility of 10-12 muscle bound men in my bedroom, however, using them to get me out of bed and in to a hospital doesn't sound like the best scenario.

the deep thought was there :)
it was just the one you triggered in OUR collective heads!

I have often wondered that myself. What is that line, I would hope that the people I love would say something to me. I am usually swimming in "denial"...

Way to go on the loss, you're doing great!

Congrats on the loss. HEY, I like to have just one muscle man in my bed. LOL

Well at 290 I was headed there too. I always think of the people who are feeding these people. Those who are enabling their love one to become so large that walls have to be torn out. There has to be mental issues with them. My family/friends would not feed me. I'm thankful for that.

I know of young adults receiving Social Security Disability checks because they are too fat to work. How bizarre is that?
