It seems as if the standard for normal weight has changed in this country, while most of us used to be on the slim side, now most of us tend to be on the other side.

I am not sure why - maybe taking cruises has something to do with it?
I like to think it isnt that people are gaining more weight, perhaps what is considered overweight may have changed. I think we all look like our mothers, therefore, our mother's weren't skinny minnys, either!!
