how important is body size/exercise? this is a touchy subject 4 a lot of people, but it is not my intention 2 offend anyone, i m just curious. americans tend 2 increase n size/girth progrssively as they age above the mid 20 s & beyond. the increased size can accru so gradually it may not b especially noticeable or objectionable. even thou i ve known about that trend b4 i was still struck while re-watching the outstanding series on pbs, "eyes on the prize" by the tremendous differences n appearance between people that had been captured on film or stills b/c of their involvement n the civil rights movement & subsequently interviewed on film 4 the program. r americans overly concerned about their bodies or not concerned enuf? r u personally involved n some aspect of body maintenance thru exercise/diet/planned activity participation? (tell us what u do please) to the extent that physical appearance is involved n ur mate/date selection what body shape/size is ur favorite & why? would u ever refuse 2 b involved w some1 b/c they did not take sufficient care of their body? & f so, y?
