You're right, Spiegy. It isnt always about lax parenting. Of course parents should always be responsible, and kids bear their share also. But an overweight child, or a child w/a medical condition, isnt always someone's "fault".
I'm sorry to hear of all the loss in your family, and pray that things go well w/your son..and you.
Nothing tastes as good as HEALTHY feels!
Eat simple, live simple, want simple.
Laugh big, love big, give big.

"Which fits your schedule better..being active an hour a day, or dead 24 hours a day?"
