One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Oops! Looks like we should’ve skipped that Smoothie.

Although, it’s probably unfair to blame this on the delicious smoothie from Fresh Grocer on Friday. This dress didn’t fit any better last summer with the belt. I think the designer just sent the wrong size.

But the pearls: definitely a nice Jackie touch. And hey! How about those toned arms! Our trainer comes all the way from Chicago to help us maintain them, so naturally we’re going to go sleeveless in February.

Oh, the event? Annual National Governor’s Meeting in D.C.. Lady M was there to tell the govs that, despite the fact that they’re all facing huge deficits and layoffs, she expects them to put her “Let’s Move” agenda on the front burner. They need to make sure that all those healthy changes to the school breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack program are implemented so the SEIU can hire some more of the unemployed. Win Win!

In her speech, MO praised many of the governors for the work they were already doing to fight the fat, saying "There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this problem." Good to know. I’ll get that word out to our favorite designers ASAP.

She also said that while the nation needs a comprehensive approach to fighting childhood obesity, "that doesn't necessarily mean an expensive approach." Although I think that’s true only if government doesn’t get involved.
