Today at On the Border...

I was sitting outside with my mom having lunch and was near the entrance, and I'll be damed, about 96% of every woman looked clearly, or noticably, overweight. Over and over everyone walking out(lunch crowd leaving, others comming in too), no offense, were huge! Im no feather myself, but it was just an unusual observation. The men werent too bad, but still. I'm not talking just a little overweight, but obese/borderline obese.
Is it eating habits? On the border isn't a great place to eat, especially if they're not worried about calories, or not sure how much can actually be digested just eating at a typical restaurant..especially Tex Mex food with all the burritos, chips, beans, ect. But hey I don't want to point the fingers or anything.
