My brother (who also has the same eye disease as me). Is ten years younger than me, two inches shorter and I think weighs the same as me if not more. I am concerned for him because of the scary statistic that says his generation will be the first to die before their parents.
I was watching Oprah yesterday (no jokes needed). She had obese teenagers. The older generations are not taking care of the children, I think, because of making money. Fast food, vending machines, advertising, trickory in advertising, etc. It's scary to think about a 20 year old needing open heart surgery or becoming diabetic.
I urge all you parents out there to be that example for your children. I hope if I ever have children to be a good example. I hope I'm not coming off preachy, I'm just really scared for these kids.
Even at the restaurants I went to I had to specially order my meals because everything was fried or filled with carbs or both. The trick for me is staying satisfied. If I'm hungry that pizza commercial looks better and better to me. And is more of a temptation. But when I have healthy food in my belly its not as bad. Not nearly.
For breakfast I had an egg white omlette with spinach and tomato with a side of rice and corn. On Oprah a guy said eating protein in the morning helps burn fat through the day. So I'm gonna try it. Egg whites in the morning.
I got a good salmon recipe I'm looking forward to trying from my girlfriends father and maybe I'll turn out to be a decent cook by the time I lose all my weight instead of a good guy to find the cheapest fast food deals. "What's that, McDonald's? 2 sausage breakfast sandwiches for just over $3? That sure is a good deal! Will you pay for my hospital bills too?? No? That doesn't seem fair."
