Obesity Is a Killer

I have 3 friends who are morbidly obese. I probably have more, but there are three I am thinking about. They are not bedridden or anything, like those people you see on TV who can't leave their homes. But they are in that place where if they are not careful, they could end up that way too. I feel so bad for them. I know it must feel hopeless to have that much weight on you. And anything you try doesn't work much. I know they could try obesity surgery. It seems like a great option. At least one of these friends has looked into it, but her insurance wouldn't cover it. Maybe the new administration can help with making insurance better for situations like this.
