I hope no one on this lovely forum is offended by this post. I just watched a BBC documentary called The Obesity Post Mortem. Do not watch if you are squeamish or offended as it did exactly what it said in the title. It really made me think about the health implications of being overweight (which was the point) but done in such a professional and non judgemental way that I found it absolutely fascinating. It is obviously not a cheery, Saturday night watch but properly seeing fat inside the body and the impact on the organs rather than just my exterior in the mirror really made me sit up and take notice. I think I am still a bit in shock from watching it and the impact it has had. I am determined that I will not let the fat win. I can't describe it as an inspiring programme but an incredibly powerful watch with some unbelievable stats about obesity and health. Sorry if this brings down your Thursday but just made me realise what a fab job everyone on here is doing, and how hard we are all fighting. So keep up the good work, and remember that every change you make, no matter how small, can only be beneficial to your amazing bodies.
