2009-05-17T10:31:00.000-05:00

When I read this post it brought on all kinds of emotions. I've never been in a scooter but I can remember the days of going to the grocery and that being the only thing I could muster up to do in a day. It would exhaust me to just walk around a store shopping. I remember the items in my cart and I would feel embarrassed by them. I would remember looking at the healthy peoples carts and seeing all the fruits and veggies they were buying.

I think I'm with Tricia on this one though that I would have died if someone had ever said something to me. I must say though that the people on the scooters running into everyone and thinking they own the isles drives me nuts lol. I feel like if you are disabled by obesity you should at least let the cart drivers go ahead of you, kind of like letting the pedestrian have the right of way on the road. Just my two cents.

The way you talked about your mom and her sister makes me think how I feel about diabetes with my aunt that slowly lost her kidneys, sight, ability to walk and eventually her life. It does make a person passionate and I say your mom has a right to be and good for her.

Good good post Jack, thanks for posting on the weekends. I'm not always here either but it's always great to come and see a good post from someone.

2009-05-17T10:10:00.000-05:00

That's great!
I often wonder what people think of me pushing my cart around full of healthy food and I'm fat...lol. "She must be shopping for her grandma"
But seriously I see people who are bigger than me and I feel like I just want to reach out. I am miserable, I can't imagine how they must feel. Some people just don't want the help. All you can do is help your self, you're right.

great post and I wonder if other's think this as they see my cart, with weight watchers ice cream?

2009-05-16T22:13:00.000-05:00

Watching Half Ton Dad/Mom/Teen really made me realize how many people are enablers of that kind of eating. It's so sad. And people may think unkind things when they see my cart. My son's medical condition requires a high fat/high calorie diet, so the things I buy for him are all the things most of us should stay away from. Then I also have the healthy things my husband and I eat. SO to an outsider, it probably looks like I'm a little bipolar. ;-)



Of course you're right, Tricia. It's a free world,...

2009-05-16T17:08:00.000-05:00

Of course you're right, Tricia. It's a free world, and I certainly wouldn't want anybody getting on to me about the choices I make in my own life. Plus, she sure did look happy working over that Eskimo pie...

2009-05-16T16:28:00.000-05:00

I often feel extra embarrassed when I'm waddling my fat ass through a grocery store with a few snacky items in my cart. I feel like everyone in there is staring into my cart and silently judging me. If anyone ever came up to me and reminded me that I'm a giant fattie who doesn't need Cheetos, I'd probably go home and die of embarrassment.

Trust me, there's not an obese person in the world who doesn't realize they're fat and that they're killing themselves. You did the right thing saying nothing. Hopefully eventually she'll want to change for herself before it's too late, but you saying it to her will probably just end up making you both feel like shit.

Just my two cents. I fucking hate when people think they need to step in and tell me I'm fat. Sorry, I forgot for two seconds. Albeit, I'm not in a cart...yet. But still. She knows.

You've got something going on here, my friend!

2009-05-16T12:32:00.000-05:00

I always tell my son, "Don't worry about others, worry about yourself." Most don't want to listen, to hear it. (I include myself in that category.)

lol FatFreeMe!



haha, that's right!

I am very worried that if they make Eskimos into pies over in the US, what do they do with Scots?

2009-05-16T11:12:00.000-05:00

If you had done any of those bulleted things, the scenario may have escalated from "Beep, beep" to "Go ahead punk, make my day." This would have been shocking in Costco. WalMart, not so much.

BTW - I get a chuckle out of the lovely blog award graphic too. Cheers.

It is heartbreaking to see someone drowning in their own bad habits. You want to toss a life preserver to them but most of the time they don't want it.
The decision to change doesn't come from the outside but form within. Someone or something may inspire us but ultimately it's up to each individual to make that crucial decision to work towards a better life. And the best thing I can do (or anyone else, in my opinon) is to be a living example. I'm not there yet but I'm at least an example of what it looks like to try to swim out of the sea of fat and lethargy to a new life.

Love your blog man. Write a no nonsense guide to dieting.

Amen. Maybe if some stranger had walked up to me while I scarfed down a McDonald's extra large Quarter Pounder meal, I would have lost this weight for good a long time ago...

You might of had a fight on your hands if you tried to grab her pie--I mean ice cream lol

Her food choices were nothing but frustrating as far as I am concerned, but then again who am I to judge.

As I scrolled down to read your post today that granny-wallpaper award catches the corner of my eye and makes me laugh! lol

:) happy weekend to ya!
