I gained a lot of weight in my 30's, mostly due to unhappiness, but was still pretty active "for a fat girl". I regularly walked up to 3 miles at a time, could get up and down the stairs faster than my sister who weighed 125 but smoked, etc. But...four years ago I got Bronchitis and haven't been the same since. I can't walk, I get sick 2-4 times a year, it takes me months to recover. I have had four jobs in four years because I can't stay healthy enough to keep a job. I have never in my life had four jobs in four years. So, fast-forward to now, I have to get healthier. I decided that I was done being sick, done taking 20+ pills a day, done hurting, done with all of it. I want to live. So I'm taking it back. I have started the process for getting bariatric surgery and I am watching what I eat and I am moving more. This is going to happen. My best friend is doing it with me even though she doesn't need to lose, she just wanted to be supportive. I have my kids helping too, there is no reason that I can't beat this...so I'm going to!

Fruit Doesn’t ripen Any More, What’s Changed?
I don't know about the genetic engineering thing but I do know that they often ship things with chemicals to stop the ripening process...this is why we can get "seasonal" fruits year round but...the downside is nothing ever seems to be ripe unless you picked it yourself Sad
