End of School Year Fluff
1452
Tue, 06-11-2013 - 10:12am

1.  Do your kids go to school on the last day of school?

2.  Do you throw (or let them throw) an end of year party for their friends?

3.  How many *graduation ceremonies* will/have your children experienced in their life time?

No, it was spring, she didn't read the post correctly and changed the statement.

Many professionals athletes would be considered obese.

....and as often as you talk about weight lose I would think that you could answer the question.

Threads change directions, sure. Sometimes it's gradual, but this time, you did a 180 as soon as you couldn't back up your points, lol. And no dear, I don't have a problem with "speaking about eating healthy and exercise and weight?" lol.

This is not exactly shocking Ducky, standard operating procedure, lol.

Education about food in the grocery store is another.

If the person only has enough for the dollar menu, then all the education in the world is not going to give them more money to buy healthier foods.

That is where education comes in, there are a lot of foods that are healthy and cheap.  Add that education with a garden and proper food storage from that garden then...yes it can work.  But if one shuns or is afraid of learning new things, then I agree with your statement.  One has to want to learn, otherwise they like to make excuses as to why they can't.

Weren't you just recently whining about people bringing up issues from past debates?  Is it only okay when you do it?

There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING, "quick fix" about gastric bypass surgery and it's beyond unconscionable for you to act as if it is.
