    Oh, dear, the last lady! I'm afraid I laughed at her before sighing at her denial.

    You laugh. I want to track down a mad scientist to graft a second head onto her shoulder so I can whack them together. My fear of losing it with all of the people out there just like her is why I don't post more often.

    Very cool! Thanks!!
    Yes, by learning, listening, watching, weighing I know I have a heroic metabolism... It's a miracle I don't weigh 600 lbs & have my own TLC show!
    And the science here is pretty compelling. It should make people feel better, no? It reminds me a lot of the breastfeeding stats... When Britain was under strict embargo in WWII I believe the breastfeeding failure rate dropped to almost nil. Simply no other options.
    But yes... I guess there will always be those who want something beyond their control to blame. And while basic physiognomy such as bone structure, muscle mass, and some female fat depositing will remain genetic absolutes being overweight is not!
