At first, I supported Michelle Obama's fight against childhood obesity. But, when she implied chubtastic kids were a threat to national security, I did an eye roll that almost severed an optic nerve.
Said the First Lady with a straight face, "This epidemic also impacts the nation’s security, as obesity is now one of the most common disqualifiers for military service."
So, why doesn't the Pentagon just approve a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy when it comes to weight? Memo to all military physicians: Get rid of the scales.
It works in my house. My husband doesn't ask how much I weigh and I don't tell.
