Many thanks to Miss Gladys for this article. Recently, a new study was published claiming that even obese people can be healthy. Here's another link you can look at about that same study. In short, the research shows, "the mortality rate of fat people who had no or only minor obesity-related health problems (such as high blood pressure or diabetes) was no higher than that of lean people." Dr. Jennifer L. Kuk, lead author of the study states: "I think this is a common notion, that if you are overweight you are unhealthy and that if you are skinny you are healthy," she told CBS News. "What people need to realize is that normal-weight people can have diabetes, high blood pressure, and other cardiovascular problems."
Today's Small Victories
Any day I can get in a morning run is a good day!
On Sunday I ran 8 miles with Lori.
Notes (to myself) about this workout: Still trying to get back on track and ready for my September challenge!
