Weight today is such a problem. Seems like too many people are too thin or too heavy. In my bar review class the other day, the instructor told us to take care of ourselves. A person in her law class gained 40 pounds while studying for the bar. All he did was eat and study. He had to wear sweats to the test, because he couldn't fit into anything else. Ouch. I do not want to do that! For those who are extremely heavy, lap band surgery may be a safe alternative to other kinds of surgeries.
