Thought for the Day--March 22, 2011: Heavy

If you haven't already done so, check out the A&E show Heavy . The participants in this docudrama are incredibly brave and inspiring; I'm not sure I could put myself "out there" like that, revealing my weight on national TV and showing my body in motion on the treadmill or on some other exercise machine. I have a great deal of respect for these people who are working hard at getting their lives in order and in shape. The odds are steep, as anyone knows who has tried to lose weight and keep it off. It will be interesting to see where these participants are in a year or two--I'm rooting for them! I believe that there is much about weight and metabolism that is not fully understood. Why do some people have difficulty knowing when to stop eating? Why do some people gain weight easily, while others pig out and never seem to gain an ounce? If I knew those answers, I'd be rich.
