Was at Ingles today and was amazed at how many super obese people I saw in the parking lot get out of compact cars. No joke -- their bellies were wedged around the wheel. Wow! Blue Ridge is king of flab. Never seen anything like it.

And you see them in the store loading the baskets full of unhealthy items.
Looks as though theses people would at least try try to get a handle on the weight.
Stay away from the cookies , prepared foods, sodas, butter, etc.
And those those smokes.
Walking heart attack .
Having children and they obese as well. Dont youbthink they should love em enough notbto take them to Mickey D and purchase healthy foods.
Saw a mother pour soda in a babies bottle at ingles then give the restvto the littlecboy that could notbhave been more than 4 years.

who are you people to judge what people here do. Amazed it says your location is jonesboro , ga. I have been there and have to say Jonesboro is not the capital of slim healthy people . You have your fair share of obese people there. And pong it doesnt say where you are located but with 2 out of three people in the united states being obese am sure you have plenty of obese people in your state. So with that being said you people should be ashamed. How do you know these people dont have medical conditions that make them obese? How do you know they can help being overweight?? You dont know unless you know these people personally. Besides its whats on the inside of a person that matters the most not what they look like on the outside. And if you notice a lot of the tags on vehicles at ingles are not fannin tags they are from out of town.

It's their choice.

Genetics also play a role as well, but overall it's a choice to eat healthy, diet, and exercise.

It's also a choice to eat whatever they want. Healthy or otherwise.

What about guys who drive gigantic cars/trucks. You know what they say, the bigger the mans truck the smaller he is... and it is true!

Sure some have medical conditions.
Speaking of the many obese that do not.
It is a choice for them.
Most fat people are irresponsible and don't try to live healthy and teaching many of there children the same.
It is a choice to choice to give your child soda in a baby bottle instead of something healthy.

There's an epidemic of people playing the victim and not accepting responsibility for their own actions.

Sometimes, if not most times, what's on the outside reveals what's on the inside.

For right now, at least, this is a free country. Well, unless you live in NYC where Mayor Bloom-in-idiot dictates what size drink you can buy. So it's their choice what car they drive, what they eat, and what they choose to feed their children .... good or bad, it's their choice.
Damn it son

Never argued over if it was a free country -- so far. It's, however, disgraceful to see fat parents feeding fat kids fat food when diabetes runs rampant in the family history.

More white trash decisions in actions and the white trash lifestyle on display for all to see and bask in its"glory" in Fannin and rural North Georgia. Although I am very libertarian in nature, having to see these type people strut around all over Georgia (really the United States in general) makes me see where Bloomberg is coming from. Although I really don't like Bloomberg, seeing how obese Americans refuse to take responsibility for themselves and their health (and how their lack of care costs ME money out of MY pocketbook due to increased overall healthcare costs to pay for their indigent asses when they have to go to the ER and don't pay their bills), makes me at least see where he is coming from. If we had people who actually gave a sh&% about themselves and their families, people like Bloomberg would be irrelevant. The fat, morbidly obese American is handing him his little bully pulpit with a bow around it to preach his agenda and further create a nanny state, because they won't police their own behavior, and thus they force politicians like him to start to address the issue.

I love the U.S., but the older I get and the more I see, I am disgusted by most people in this country. Some places are better and some are worse, and I do agree that many around BR tend to be on the side of the scale of not caring about neat personal appearances, keeping up their personal health or living a healthy lifestyle. I wish this could change, but first of all you have to get people with a mentality of giving a damn about anything positive, besides figuring how to to game the system, cigarettes, playing a hypocrite, popping out kids they shouldn't be having, drugs and the like. Pathetic.

Most of what you say is true; however, ALL obese people aren't running to the ER, because some have relatively few if any medical issues. Also, believe it or not, SOME obese people work and support themselves AND pay their own bills.

Kind of like smokers, lots of people don't like their lifestyle choices, but it doesn't affect everyone the same.

The area was "ruined" long before I ever set foot near it - ruined by white trash running rampant - and the local "establishment" looking the other way. It's actually getting a little better year by year, little by little, because at least the white trash influence is being diluted by more people who try to keep things up better (including their own bodies). And who says I am from Atlanta? Guess you are too ignorant to have it finally sink in that the city posted here has nothing to do with where you are.

NO not ignorant just know that when you post it post from the city you are in or closest to. White trash is people like you as far as us local people the ones who were born and raised here do not like people like you coming here and trashing the place. It was a lot safer before people like you started coming here and trying to change things. And don't start that nonsense that if the natives didnt sell there land we wouldn't be here. Because the land in my family has been here for generations not one inch of it has ever been sold and never will be. WE DON"T LIKE CITY SLICKERS. Who are you to come here and call people white trash?? You are pond scum.

WOW...The "City Slickers" as you call them (haha) are about the only people with "class" that I see around here. I am not necessarily calling (all)the locals who were born and raised here "trash", but many have no clue as to how to carry themselves, act appropriately in public, and dress like they aren't going to bed (or just crawled out of it)...so I guess if the shoe fits (as they say). So, rather than bashing the "City Slickers"...next time you're in Ingles, look around and take note as to how the "City Slickers" (haha,again)carry themselves, smile at everyone, and are appropriately dressed for the occasion. Maybe, just maybe you will learn a thing or two and appreciate the culture & class being brought to the area.

I think you are wrong. Like the post above, it is not the Atlanta people ruining BR. The Atlanta people are just trying to help.

You probably saw me. I drive an older model Dodge Rom 50 and weigh 418 pounds. The reason I drive a small vehicle is because it is all I can afford seeing as I am on disability for obesity. Long as it gets me to Walmart, McDonalds and Ingles I don't care.

Culture and class lol please you wouldnt know culture and class if it bit you in the ass. Most of the people you see that look like they just crawled out of bed are people like you the visitors and the ones who moved here. They aren't natives. The city slickers do not carry themselves well for the most part most of you look gay. and give me a break the city slickers do not smile at everyone and are not appropriately dressed. The city slickers act like they are better than everyone else and act like the natives owe them something. Everytime i go into town i hear more and more people complaining about people from out of town , the way you act, the way you drive, the clothes you wear, The natives do not like your kind and dont want you here. Maybe i will run for mayor next time. I will make clear your kind is not welcome here.
