Seriously?

Just a short post.

I was waiting in line at a grocery store and overheard the following conversation.

Lady 1:  My doctor told me I'm overweight.  I told him I couldn't exercise because my knees hurt so bad I can't stand to walk.

Lady 2: Yeah mine said that too. Exercising is too hard when you can't walk.

Me: (sigh) To my credit I said nothing.  Not a word, but I did eye what was in their shopping carts.  Bread, icecream, snack cakes, chips, diet soda, chocolate milk, mac n cheese.  Not a fruit or vegetable in sight. 

You don't have to exercise to lose weight.  I didn't exercise at first.  I simply made better food choices.  Is it really that hard to figure out?  What goes in your mouth is what is on your hips, stomach and gut. 

I don't understand what the disconnect is.  All I want to say to people is "Seriously?  You think you're going to lose weight by eating *THAT*?" 

That's really all I have to say right now. 

Have a safe happy healthy Sunday evening.
