You also know that there are other factors that go into employer group health insurance like average age, so unless your employer keeps a steady amount of younger hires your insurance will consistently go up.

Well the letter I keep getting in the mail read
"Due to more of our members being overweight....bla bla bla....+$10 a pay stub ($20/month)"
Last year I was able to reduce my bill a little by going in for an official weigh in and physical test / blood work and submitted a one year log of me attending Yoga class for two hours per week. And though I really do need to drop another 10lbs to 15’bs around my mid section I was in the top 10% of healthy members? I was just shocked! So I asked the woman doing my audit what was going on and she stated that of the men in the 30-40 group a good 50%+ were on Lipator due to cholesterol issues…women in the group in the same age bracket were also borderline diabetic at the same rates. And well we all know these drugs and the treatments are not cheap and well…we got to pay.

At my facility we are encouraging people to go for walks every other day and if they submit to a physical test every quarter they get a half day with paid time off. And one of the girls I know is running the study and she tells me that the numbers are just downright scary. Her office is on the third floor and when people show up to her desk they need to sit and catch their breath for 15 min before she can take their pulse.

So maybe…it’s not good to encourage such an unhealthy life style? It may save us money in the long run?

Nate you are from Germany.
Ever shop in the US?
My European girl friends LOVE LOVE LOVE shopping here in the US.
And it's not about the 20% discount. It's about the fact that they are a medium in the EU but they are a Small or an X small here in the US.
You guys and gals over in the EU live very healthy lives! And I miss living and working in the EU. All the walking I did and all the great healthy food you have really leads you guys and gals to live healthy happly lives! You are so lucky to be living in the EU.

It's not just from continent to continent either. A woman who is a 6 at Target will be a 2 at Maison-Weiss. The more you are willing to pay, the smaller they are willing to make you...

Really?
You don't like the food or the beer or the walking or the ability to go to a new country in under 3 hours?


I don't know....when I was in Brazil in 96 and then again in 02...my view of the country was on of good life and good health. But how things have changed?

Not beaing mean just sad...and well a bit pissed about the $20 a month I have to give up this year and the $20 a month I had to give up last year....

Just had hoped a place like Brazil was...better?
And well I was wrong and now I'm sad. I'm going to go around and ask engineers to give me a hug just to watch them freak out.

You're basing this all on a niche fashion show? When this show becomes more famous than the Victoria's Secret fashion show you'll have something to bitch about. Until then... move along, nothing to see here.

Well, according to your same source, they're currently at 10-20% obesity rate.

How much would you care about your appearance if this is all that anyone in the public will ever see?
