I went to see a matinee yesterday afternoon. I like going to the theater to see movies because it’s a whole different feeling watching it on the big screen rather than watching it at home with distractions. Plus, I love smelling the buttered popcorn when I walk in. (Key word – “smelling”.)
This visit to the theater was SO disturbing for me. I have NEVER witnessed such obese people in my life! Most of them were waddling from side to side, limping around, scooting their feet, riding a scooter, or dragging an oxygen tank behind them! No, this was not a Wal-Mart, but a regular movie theater in the Midwest. God forbid any of them forgot to buy the BUTTERED POPCORN, CANDY, and a COKE! Oh yes, they definitely had armfuls of that.
Now, let me clarify…I used to eat all of that. Yes, the popcorn, candy, and a “diet” coke (?). I finally woke up! I understand now that the buttered popcorn, candy, and sodas = FAT!!!! Pure FAT!!! I choose not to have that become part of my body. People spend multi-billions of dollars on diet and weight loss programs. How about NOT spending a penny by NOT buying crap food so the FAT won’t be inside of you?
This may sound super harsh, but it made me mad and sad for people who just don’t get it and don’t care about themselves or us. “WE” pay over $270 BILLION per YEAR from the effects of obese Americans. Yes, we live in a free country and we all have free will, but come on! Let’s make the correlation and be honest with ourselves…EATING FAT = BEING FAT!!!
Rant over…have a nice day!
