Since I’ve been on this big healthy eating/exercise/weight loss kick, and started working in a store that is smack dab in the center of what passes for a food court in our mall, I’ve been reminded of a starting trend: we fatties tend to eat the worst food out there for us.

Today during some downtime, I observed a family of three at lunchtime. The mother of this family was in the neighborhood of 400 pounds, and relied on an electric scooter for the majority of her mobility. The husband wasn’t much lighter, and hobbled with a cane. I’m sure both adults’ problems were related to their obesity. Their son was so overweight he had no neck that I could see, and was probably a 38 inch waist. He couldn’t have been more than 11 years old.

What do you think this bunch had for lunch? How ‘bout a party platter of deep fried chicken nuggets designed to serve 12 people from Chick-Fil-A, They also got a large order of fries each, and when they were done eating they went back up and all three got a milkshake. When will people realize that this kind of diet is deadly? I totally feel sorry for the kid in this story: but the parents should know better!
