While President Obama has been busy playing golf -- 32 times since becoming president, eight rounds more than George W. Bush played in his entire two terms -- his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, has been biking and kayaking and Tweeting about it to his 55,600 followers. "The truth is, having traveled with [Obama] on the campaign, you're working so much and by the end of the day, you're just so exhausted, I let my health go.

When did weight gain become bad health?
You know what’s really frightening about this? That Gibbs has over 55,000 followers on Twitter......
Wow. He’s only 39?
Are you serious?
Additional pressure on the heart.
Additional pressure on joints.
Additional pressure on feet.
“When did weight gain become bad health?”
When the degree of weight gain in the US led to an explosion in the prevalence of type II diabetes.
too bad for him that lying isn’t good exercise
He’d weigh about 155, with the circulatory system of a marathon runner.
Long work days and a high stress job will do that to you. And it’s a pain in the backside to get it off, too. Just waiting for the adrenal glands to get back to normal takes a while.
Type 2 diabetes: your child's risk
Type 2 diabetes runs in families. In part, this tendency is due to children learning bad habits eating a poor diet, not exercising--from their parents. But there is also a genetic basis.
He’s only 39? Yeesh.
Gibbs 39? I would have thought older.
It’s the “adult onset” aspect that’s exploding...due mostly to weight.
He looks awful.
So when you call Chief Propaganda Minister Gibbs "a big fat liar" you aren't exaggerating!
He disgusts me...
At 39, he doesn’t have the creds to be the smarmy sarcastic prick that he is at his pressers.
Hell, the way he acts I thought he was 19.
I see that weight gain also contributes to stupidity in Gibbs case.
HOW STUPID IS ROBERT GIBBS ?
Michelle, the Obesity Czar, will need to spring into action.
I can just see the two of them playing Wii Tennis in the West Wing...*my eyes!*
