    Funny/sad moment:
    Was at the 'regular' grocery store today and heard an overweight mom tell her (about 12 year old, skinny as a rail) daughter -- "no, those cheese sticks are bad for you because they have so much fat in them". She then picked up a package of low fat cheese 'food product' and put it in the cart.

    Hey, Mom... listen to what your kid's body is craving and give it to her -- REAL FOOD -- instead of all that over-processed crap!
    Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
    Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
    Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

    When my cousin took her son to his first day of preschool she gave him a couple of squirts in his mouth of a calming spray. She was telling me the next week how well it worked for him and calmed him right down. I was riding with her at the time so I read the ingredient label on this natural, holistic calming spray. First ingredient? Brandy. In a product for young children?!!! OMG!

    No wonder he was calm.

    I used to get something similar from my kinesiologist and she mixes it herself. She uses Everclear.

    Is that even that big of a deal? No offense or anything, but it just seems like a spray would be such a small amount that it wouldn't be like the kid was having a lot of alcohol or anything....

    This conversation reminds me of when my daughter was about 2 years old and had a bad cold with a dry cough that was just making her miserable and she couldn't sleep. We were barely making ends meet but I went to the corner drugstore with the only dollar I had to find cough medicine for a child. This was 1970 and children were not an industry like now. I finally found one labeled for infants and children that cost 95 cents....rasberry something. Gave her the recommended amount and she went right to sleep. I had never seen any medicine work this fast so I decided to check the ingredients. Even though I was only eighteen, I knew 80% alcohol was just wrong. Out went the bottle and I sat up most the night afraid she would stop breathing.

    I found it wrong from the standpoint of using it as a quick crutch instead of figuring out the underlying problem. Besides, there are herbal calmers so why alcohol?

    Looking back, it saddens me how much I wanted to eat the skin of the chicken, or dark meat turkey, and cheese, and butter, but I was chastised for my cravings. Instead, our usual meals were skinless chicken breast (grilled to sanddust perfection), brown rice (with margarine!), and microwaved vegetables (I sh*t you not). Its obvious to me, in retrospect, that growing kids need a lot more caloric energy so no wonder I was craving that stuff, and when fat is withheld, its no wonder we turn to sugar instead. I was so hungry that I would sneak into the pantry and steal spoonfuls of sugar CONSTANTLY.

    I didn't do this constantly, but not infrequently either. My little sister once stole a stick of margarine and took it up to her room to eat it. I think my brother got caught sticking his fingers into the margarine and licking them. I won't go into the rest of the terrible things my mom was feeding us.

    I'd raid the cupboard and eat old frosting, sip vanilla extract, and worse. Anything to try to curb the edge of my over-weight starving body. Cravings like that push you to find nutrition any place it might be. You might find yourself trying to eat your pencil in class or wondering if you can just eat a lot of chewable vitamins. The malnourished, yet overweight body is a demon to be feared.

    The Denmark saturated fat tax has been made official. This isn't funny, though.
