After last evening, I believe the overweight issue in this country exists across the age groups. I rarely go anywhere where there is more than a few people within observeable distance at one time. I also live in one of the least diverse areas in the country.
I received a phone call before leaving work yesterday asking that I stop at the local take and bake pizza store and pick up a pizza. This is less than a once in a year or two trip for me, and I learned that Tuesday is not the day to get a pizza. It seems Tuesday is special day.
The place was packed and I had to wait 40+ minutes for the pizza. During that time I only observed two plump people, one not over weight person and an untold horde of over weight individuals.
Ages ranged from senior to teen. Making the observation in a pizza place on specials day may have skewed the talley, but I was shocked.
