  1. My 11-year-old daughter, who is about 20 lbs overweight (114 lbs on a 4'7" frame) has joined me on Whole30 because she is desperate for change. I've been very gentle with her because I don't want her to become too food-obsessed, but 5 days in she's doing a fantastic job. However, last night she looked at me and said, "Mommy, what if this doesn't work?" I'd love to be able to give her some examples of kids who've seen changes with Whole30 but I can't find ANY on this site except the 16-year-old girl in success stories (she really loved that one!) Does anyone have a story to share?
  2. Generation XXL

    Did anyone else watch last night's "Generation XXL" segment on Our America? Eye-opening, to say the least. Shocking and also touching. If you have a chance to see it, please do. Some of the highlights: 1 in 6 American children is now obese (not chunky or overweight or heavy, obese.) This generation is on the road to being the first whose life expectancy is lower than their parents'. I felt such empathy for the mother of a 101 pound four-year-old who is angry at herself for her child's myriad health issues. I just wanted to say to her, "Turn your anger into determination because every single one of his conditions can be improved/eliminated by what YOU CHOOSE to put on his plate. You have the power to fix this." There is a group of volunteer firefighters and their family members in Mississippi who together lost over 500 pounds in one year and are aiming to get to 1000. One of them, a lady who lost 120 pounds in that year, talked about how proud she is simply to be able to fit into a pair of jeans at Walmart. Such a humble but touching milestone! Did anyone else see it? Any comments?
