post (http://thefreshxpress.com/2010/06/why-are-black-women-so-big/) has sparked a lot of talk about black women being overweight. That is excellent! While I think that she could have used some compassion, it is a serious issue.
I am currently trying to live healthier. But it pains me to see parents setting a bad example for their children. (generations of overweight people) I have stopped buying chips, juice boxes and some processed foods in my house. I have started cooking more veggies and eating brown rice. I also set aside time for bike rides, hiking and other physical activity with the whole family. I’m responsible for keeping my family healthy and I take that responsibility seriously!
Yes, the post was candid but necessary, in my opinion.
Lets be real, there is a major problem with obesity in the US.
