Re: "‘New Year’s Resolution Makers’:


I am sitting on the bus the other day and to my left, two women were quite loudly discussing the fact that they can’t stand that the exercise clubs, running trails and swimming pools are now filled with "New Year’s Resolution Makers." It is obvious that these women are regular health enthusiasts, yet their lack of enthusiasm for those who are trying to motivate themselves to do the same was appalling. I don’t know what was more disgusting — hearing them rag on the "fat girls" they wouldn’t have to see in the next couple of weeks; or making snide comments about the overweight woman on the bus who in their words, "should sign up for a lifetime membership to the gym."


To those who have a similar opinion, remember: we are responsible for what goes in our mouths and also for what comes out of them. Words are powerful.
