I was going through some photos and was amazed to find this one — I forgot I’d taken it. It was the summer of 2010, when I was up at the University of Vermont for an event. Sorry for the graininess, it was taken with a not-ideal cellphone camera. Text below.
“LOSE WEIGHT GAIN CREDIT – A one-credit online behavioral weight management course / Based on the University of Vermont’s 17 years of obesity research / Lose weight and begin living a healthier, more active lifestyle / Meet online once a week via a chat room / vtrim online / for undergrads”
I know 1 credit isn’t a lot, but I just … urgh … when it comes to the idea of offering university credits for weight loss. Also, note the pictures: all thin women.
