My Uncle’s Weight Problem

January 9, 2013 at 10:07 pm

Most of us have struggled with our weight at one time or another.  The diet industry is big business in the US and most of the world stereotypes Americans as fat.

I love my uncle.

In 2000, he was about 50 lbs overweight but he carried it well.  It caused a few aches and pains, but no serious health issues.

Unfortunately, he continued to pack on the pounds…

In 2013, he’s almost 160 lbs overweight and there’s a lot of things he just can’t do any longer.

And it looks like he’s going to continue to add at least another 10 lbs every year.

He insists that he doesn’t eat too much – that he just needs a little exercise.

10 lbs = $1,000,000,000,000.00 or about $3,300 per person living in the US.
