Oh man, the Presidential Fitness Test? Nailed it.

@Cat named Virtute - I'd also add that she frames her ongoing commitment to being "thinner" as a health choice which she supports with the BMI chart. Even as she works through the idea of fatness as a morality issues - maybe not totally successfully but whatever - she's reasserting a different code of health as morality. It would have made a huge difference if she'd said that the reason she remains committed to eating well and exercising (as well as quitting smoking and drugs) because those things are healthier - and for her, they equal a smaller body size. It's a small distinction but it makes a world of difference.
Did I hear a call for Bare Minerals Flawless Definition mascara yet? It pretty much rocks my world.
