French ministers have been trimming down around the waist area because working in the French government offices means you are under the direct influences of Nicolas Sarkozy’s weight loss program.
We can’t imagine a workplace where your job is always on the line if you don’t make the scale. It should only apply to professional athletes and supermodels because they are paid purely to perform and look good.

Lose weight and get healthy because you want to do it for yourself, don’t let someone else dictate you into eating lettuce 3 meals a day (which is no better than someone calling you a “fat cow” just because they don’t have a weight problem).
