Weight Gain

Before I get started on this one, I apologize to my dear blog followers (though few you are) for being so quiet over here the last few weeks. While I've been reading plenty, I'm assuming most of you don't want in-depth (or even basic) coverage on my student teachers' lesson plans. That being said, let's dive in.

October 4, 2010, Time Magazine, page 20:
0.5lb (Weight gain of freshman women with obese roommates)
2.5lb (Weight gain of freshman women with slim roommates)

There are a few ways to look at this...
1. The small weight gain with obese roommates is because they beat you to all the goodies in care packages your mom sends you.
2. The larger weight gain with slim roommates is because they don't even eat their own goodies from care packages. Instead they sneak the goodies into your care package pile and you eat double the goodies (nothing wrong with double homemade cookies!)

But my favorite way to look at this...
Only "Freshman 2.5?!?!?!" What's changed since I was in school? I would have killed for the "Freshman 2.5!"
