Now onto the awesome stuff!
I am excited to say that in the past week I found a new site to join that is basically a Birchbox for gourmet food! For those of you who might not know, Birchbox is a widely successful site that allows people to pay monthly to receive a box of new high-end cosmetics delivered to their door. I am currently on the waiting list : / However, this has a ton of spin offs including "BarkBox" which delivers dog treats and toys to your door. I think our pup is spoiled enough though as I see him cuddled up in my fiances arms in bed while I have to leave for work. (lucky dog)

I think the most genius thing is that if you like something that they have sampled, you can go on their site and buy it so you don't have to go searching in the store. Also, for every box you buy they provide a meal to a child in need. Wonderful all around! I was told that there is a package waiting for me at home and so I will have to let you all know how it is with a Love with Food Recap sometime this week. I am excited!
Now in my discussions with folks around this topic is brought up a slew of other branches off of the original. Many questions were brought out into the forefront including things like:
- What is considered obese? What if I am medically considered obese but eat healthy and exercise regularly and have no health issues?
- Is this really taking the stigma away from the term obesity or is it adding to it to say "I have a disease"?
- Up until 30 years ago, having curves was considered appealing now thin is equivalent to attractive - why?
So, as you can tell, this is not a one sided issue and it can foster so many other conversations about what is right and wrong with how we treat ourselves and our health as a nation. What are your thoughts on these issues?
