I was just reading on line about Wyonna's Judd's losing 60 pounds. Now being a person that myself have struggled with my weight my entire life. I say good for Wy. However, some of the comments people were writing were just ugly and hurtful. So I had to ask myself, "do those that write these comments, are their lives so.......I cannot even come up with a word here.....but why on earth say such horrid things about someone you really don't even know." How can anyone judge another person until they have traveled that road and walked in that person's shoes.
I am not a ''Judd's" fan myself, but I think this woman has done an amazing job of losing 60 pounds. I will never understand why so many feel the need to tear someone else down, just to try and make themselves feel better about their own lives.
Sad society we live in today.

Before we reach for that ''fun'' sized candy, here are a few of the candies, and how many minutes we would have to walk to burn off the calories. Hopefully, this will make us think before reaching into that bag or bowl.
M&M Fun size (plain).............70 calories.......29 minutes to burn it off.
Skittles Fun Size......................60 calories.......25 minutes to burn it off
Corn treat pak........................50 calories.......21 minutes to burn it off.
York Peppermint Pattie Mini.50 calories.......21 minutes to burn it off. Now this is for just 1, not 3.
Snickers Miniature................. 40 calories......17 minutes to burn it off. This is not even the fun size, this is the one that is about the diameter of a postage stamp.
Tootsie Roll midgee..............23 calories........10 minutes to burn it off.
So there we have it, compliments of this months Good Housekeeping magazine. Ask yourself....is it worth it??

I have to wonder from time to time....where is the time going and why is it moving so fast. I was reading another blog a while ago, and they were already thinking about what they wanted or would be doing in 2011. We have not even finished up 2010. So that got me to thinking....is this person going to chalk 2010 up as, the year I did not meet my goals, and from there wait until 2011 to begin again? If that is what the plan is...very bad idea, especially if it concerns better eating habits and more activity. Can you imagine how much damage a person could do to themselves if they decide to do nothing between now and the end of 2010. I don't know...does not sound like a good idea to me.
