For Once, I'm Glad I'm Fat!

Ever since I hit the big five, I have been fighting the middle age spread which is still spreading. :-( However, TO sent me an article which cheered me up greatly! For once, I am glad I'm not slim...(*sour grapes haha*)

According to THIS ARTICLE:

Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, was at best only half-right when she said: ‘You can never be too rich or too thin.’

In fact, being too thin can be seriously unhealthy.

Scientists revealed last week they’d discovered a ‘lean gene’ that puts thin men in danger of developing diabetes.

This is just the latest piece in a growing body of evidence that shows how being skinny can expose people to a range of serious problems.

These include a raised risk of miscarriage, lung disease, male infertility and even death in car accidents.
So what counts as underweight?

Officially, it means a body mass index, or BMI, below 18.5. (Your BMI is your weight in kilos divided by your height in metres squared.)

    Bunny don't convince yourself that thin is "in."

    remember that fat is where it's at.

    and there'll be so much more of you to love.
