    “Personally, I blame much of it on the chemicals other countries ban from their food supplies. Those same chemicals, however, can be found in almost everything we eat in the USA.”

    I do, too! It’s horrible what is put in our foods. I’ve done some research on the topic, and I’m fully convinced that what they put in our foods has a lot to blame for how overweight some people are. It’s not fair to blame people. A couple years ago, I was diligent about only eating organic foods, and I was eating a ton of salads, even when eating out. My friend would eat whatever she wanted, and she often had dessert and a fattening mochas. I also walked my butt off, and she did minimal exercise. I was heavier than she was, but I was more alert, had tons more energy, and could walk circles around her. So it upsets me when people assume heavier people are doing something wrong.

      It should be criminal the things the FDA allows in our food supplies. They’ll take 10 years to approve an anti-cancer drug for people who are dying, yet poison us with chemicals and preservatives (and only God knows what else). So many of those things cause ailments like metabolic syndrome and more.

      But yes. I was going to the pool six days a week – and exercising for an hour every single day. And when it didn’t feel like exercise, I exercised harder – and for about ten days was afraid I’d cracked a rib, lol. It was just seriously pulled muscles. But a lot of thinner women – those who chowed down at fast food places and didn’t get near the exercise I did would look at me like I needed to lose a few pounds. Which I did but what they didn’t know is that I’ve never been able to get my hypothyroidism under control. Why? Because the prescriptions make my blood pressure high and since they apparently can cause kidney damage, I’m NOT taking those!
