Is Targeting Overweight Kids Just Plain Mean?

Georgia Obesity Campaign Hurts

The state of Georgia decided that parents weren’t paying enough attention to the obesity problem plaguing children in their state, so they launched a series of anti-obesity ads called “Stop Sugarcoating” that spelled out provocative and demeaning messages. Some of the messages in ads are: “It’s hard to be a little girl when you’re not.”   Continue Reading…

In The Country

In the real country.

We went blueberry picking Saturday and had a great time! We drove about 30 minutes from our home although I hear there are some fields closer to us. It was all part of the adventure though. The place was definitely “country.” Say that word with a southern accent and you get the picture! Here’s the kids   Continue Reading…

Progress Is Made When. . .

No matter where you are in your journey, you have already made progress. If you have been working on getting healthier for just one week you have made some progress. You may not have lost any weight yet, but you’ve made progress just by taking the first step towards working on your health. I worked   Continue Reading…

This! In a Hospital!

Chairs in a Hospital

I was in a new section of our hospital recently. While I was waiting, I noticed that the chair across from me was a strange size.

Legacies of Health

I’ve been thinking about the legacies we will leave behind when we have passed from this world. There is an elderly couple in our church who had 5 children. Those 5 children gave them 25 grandchildren. Those 25 grandchildren have given them 23 great-grandchildren, with several more on the way. She and her husband may not have   Continue Reading…

Lessons From The Zoo

Lazy Hippos at Zoo

Last Friday my family and I took a trip to the zoo. I realized how sheltered my two year old is when during the entire one hour drive there he kept saying, “Animals – pantry – cookie?” Because, yes – we occasionally have animal cookies and he thought that’s where animals like giraffes and elephants   Continue Reading…

Weekend Eating

I loved the weekends. Weekend food was fun. Cinnabons in the mall. (Yes, the plural was deliberate) Large buttered popcorn at the movie theatre, chips and cheese after the kids went to bed, special “just because” desserts and fast food restaurants were normal fare for me before I lost 150 pounds. Why is it that   Continue Reading…

Thoughts on Airplane Seating

airplane seats are too small

I’ve flown on and off my whole life. I always enjoyed flying until I became an adult, and then all of a sudden it made me really, really nervous. I fly when I need to, but don’t love it like my husband does. Every time I fly I  grip the armrests willing the plane up   Continue Reading…
