Fat Camp

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

On the side bar there is a question, "Would you attend a Fat Camp?"

You bet I would. I would love to be able to work out on machines and in the pool. I think it would be fun to have someone else plan and prepare healthy meals for me so that I could have more time to work out.

However, I haven't yet heard of a fat camp for people with special physical needs. I wonder why not? Do we not count? We need help just as much or even more than our ablebodied friends.

I know from experience that there are recreation therapists out there who would be delighted with the prospect of putting their education to work working with people who have special needs. I would love to see those of us who feel at a disadvantage to have the opportunity to catch up with the rest of our groupl

So SparkPeople administrators, Here is your challenge. Plan, develop and execute a program for people who are differently abled. Make it eligible for subsidies and get us started. Oh!!! Don't forget to put my name at the top of the list.

Love, Grammajudy1 emoticon

    It would be great if there were such a camp and there may be somewhere. There is a team call the Chair Exercise Team. I know that isn't a camp but it might be able to help you.

  Judy, This is a Great idea! I think you should send your suggestion to the Spark Guy Spark Page. I would attend a fat camp if the meals were planned out for me. The meals would have to be gluten-free and sugar-free. However, I would spend my time in the swimming pool! Judy, I really like this blog!

    What a great idea! Would you consider sending an email on the Spark Guy's Spark Page? I did that once and he answered within 48 hours.....just a thought emoticon

    That sounds sensible to me Judy. I too would be gratified for the opportunity to go to camp...fat or skinny. Oops, I certainly wouldn't be eligible for the skinny one! emoticon

    Me, too. I'd even like someone to listen to my challenges and recommend exercises for me. Put my name on the list. Edie
