Yeah there's nothing different happening between the US and other developed countries, the US is just ahead of everyone else. We'll all be where you guys are in a few years, I assure you.
I think a huge thing, both to do with obesity and other social issues, is a lack of self responsibility. I mean really, I was just like those obese people some of you in this thread have made fun of, for 4 years. I don't know what changed, but something did, and majorly. The old me was as close to the stereotype of an obese person as you can get, I was the definition. The me I have been for the past year or so is totally different. I don't know why there's that barrier and I don't know why I changed, or how others can, but that's the difference between letting those things you guys have talked about, turn you into an obese person, and not.
