Glad to see it recognized whether a disease or an illness. There will be more help available through the medical profession and insurances with it recognized.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

What an over-simplification. I agree that it's a symptom of something else - really many somethings in varying combinations. Society pushing unnecessary calories and sedentary-encouraging time wasters does not help. I love a lot of our modern conveniences, but there is something to be said for "the good old days" when people ate in more healthy ways and got a lot more exercise just as part of normal daily living.

There is a lot involved and obesity is a symptom of a lot of other problems often.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I disagree in a way. Yes, it can become a disease in some cases. But I honestly believe it's more of us never feeling we have enough. Super size this, super size that. I think with less fast food, there'd be a lot less obesity in the USA.
