Life Insurance help or motivation to lose weight

Ripoff from my doctor's website, unedited:

Waist size: There are many cardiovascular risk formulas and ratios that use your waist measurement, but one of the simplest is also one of the most accurate:

Your waist size in inches should not be greater than one half your height in inches. The greater your abdominal girth relative to your height, the greater your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Insurance companies are good at making money because their actuaries are very knowledgeable in determining risks. Why do you think they insist on knowing your height and waist measurements as part of your insurance physical? Increased abdominal girth is a strong indicator of hyperinsulinemia, pre-diabetes, and diabetes and consequently a useful indicator of cardiovascular disease.

We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.

We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it.
