On the way to work yesterday I heard this clip from CNN. The Japanese government is forcing companies to check the waistline of all employees and if they are deemed overweight then the company gets fined and the company can fine the employees. A part of me wishes they did that here in the states for my own benefit.
When I was in the Navy I knew I had to be in shape, to not only fit in my uniforms that are only issued every 4 to 8 years, but it was part of the job and promotion standards and requirments. Maybe that is what I need to stay in shape - a job that requires it.
