is when your parents receive your report card and your brother’s report card from school on the same day, and this doesn’t happen to you: You (overweight) have a higher average than your brother (“average” weight). As a reward, you get dessert tonight; one scoop of low fat frozen yogurt. Your brother, as a reward, gets his McDonald’s usual; three hamburgers, a large fry, and a chocolate shake. What the difference? “Your brother doesn’t need to lose weight like you do.”
Thanks, mom and dad.
