From a CW weight loss site I was looking at today...
"With time, we gain weight, because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that, when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So, we aren't heavy; we are enormously cultured, educated and happy."
It's in a story made to make people feel better about being large (obviously), not an article or anything like that... but dang.
People do go to great lengths to "justify" their overweight. I guess you have to when you're doing "everything right" (low fat, low cal diet, chronic cardio) and nothing is changing.
Me? I'm glad to have found the PB.
