Gulper Eel: Eventually it dawns on people that they don't want to be 29 and diabetic any more than they want to be 34 and a grandparent.

Perhaps. Sure, you can "live with" diabetes (or even diabeetus) just like you can "live with" losing your foot. But of course who wants to "live with" either, considering the latter actually can be a result of the former?

thurstonxhowell: How is that surprising? Most parents I know are obsessed with feeding their kids the healthiest food they'll actually eat. I don't remember it being like that when I grew up.

I know a lot that are, and I also know many that aren't. Of course, I live in South Carolina so I'm often surrounded by the fattest parents raising the fattest kids should I ever have to go to Wal-Mart.
