Now here's a good idea - Banner Health Weight loss Center is sponsoring a walk in the park this Saturday at Freestone Park in Gilbert, Arizona. Walkers can complete as many laps as they see fit.
It's time to bring the problem of obesity out of the category of "unmentionable" health issues and do something about it publicly. We dare not call anyone fat; we tell our children that it's rude. Even the nurses at my doctor's office are fat. There is no other word for it. But talking about "obesity action" seems to have become acceptable. Maybe when clothing manufacturers start labeling large sizes Obese, More Obese, and Disgustingly Obese, maybe some changes will be made.
