Perhaps I’m being a little critical...just been watch BBC news showing vaccinations being given,but there seems to be quite a lot of NHS staff seemingly overweight...

Hard work in some women produces more muscle...it's true,you look at the old photos of women in the old days when food was rationed and some women had load of youngsters to feed and care for.some of them were massive.

Abstract
Nurses' work is known to be stressful, and many nurses work shifts. Both stress and shift work are factors that can influence how and what nurses eat and may increase nurses' risk for weight gain and obesity. This literature review summarizes the evidence regarding the prevalence of obesity and overweight among nurses who work shifts and examine associations between stress and the eating behaviors of these nurses. The conclusion provides some implications for occupational health nurses who promote wellness for their employees.

Long hours and being on their feet most of the time add to the problem.

..... or patients!

Anyroadup, when I was little, in Haydock, my gran and my mum used to talk, like they do, and I remember them always talking about ..... t'fatty nurse'!
This was in reference to a local nurse who came to my grandfather when he was ill. After he'd passed away, the term still came about when my gran weren't too well. She'd say, "I've bin t'see t'fatty nurse" or, if she was putting her 'broad voice' on a bit it would be "t'fatty noss"!

PS: that's the same gran who bought herself a N*""er Br**n Mac from Oxley's. (all the go in the sixties) (apparently!)

Oh, and she also had a budgie that could say "Liverpool Bus"!

Well my wife went to Robin Park today for her Covid vaccination.
She reported that most of the people administering the vaccine were of a fairly normal shape,but the lady telling people where to sit was pleasantly plump!

One of my ex workmates went for a health check and was told he needed to loss weight. Asked the nurse did she practise what she was preaching as he said she was bigger than him

It's funny how they don't seem to know there is a problem until it's too late and end up in the promised land, diabetes, joint problems, heart problems etc.

You are responsible for you put in your mouth, the above ailments are warnings so take heed. Plus you cost a lot to fix through the NHS.

My dad was fit as a butcher's dog, slim, muscular, ate healthy food, didn't smoke, only drank beer occasionally. He died aged 60.

Uncle Harry was big, plump, smoked all his life, ate like a horse (including pies!), drank regularly. He died a few months before his 100th birthday.

Big, small, fat or thin, what will be will be !

In the 1970s you could buy a bobbin of cotton, and the colour was printed on it as 'N****r Brown' and I was told that the term was used by Africans as a colloquial reference to people who came from the African country of Niger, they are referred to officially as Nigerians, and I would presume that a lot slaves were kidnapped from there, and the Americans who bought them, called them by that word.

Ni***r was a common word in the 40s & 50s,it was just a colour, many black dogs were named using the word.

Well I always have associated that word with someone who is black, and it is a derogatory word now.
