So do you have any plans for Valentine's Day? I
seem to recall writing
just last year about how much I was looking forward to
covered peanuts (or peanut butter cups). How
I think this year I'll just be happy with a caramel
macchiato, non-fat and a
good Jane Austen movie.
Did you get that, honey? I know you're reading.
What are YOU looking forward to?
I've seen some articles lately about people who've
up on their New Year's resolution to lose
weight. They couldn't
stick to their diets and were somewhat resigned to the
fact that this
just isn't their year.
That only lends credence to my opinion that diets
DON'T WORK. When
you see those great commercials or ads with people
lots of pounds doing one thing or another, you always
see fine print
that says "not typical results", or some such thing.
That means MOST people won't lose weight with that
strategy--or they won't lose as much weight as they
won't keep it off.
Ditch dieting forever and give my strategy a
try. It worked for me, and
it keeps on working for me. I eat fast food,
dine out occasionally,
enjoy carbs after 3 p.m., savor desserts and sample
all the snacks
at parties. You can do the same.
You can't everything you want when you want it in
portions as big as
you want, but if you can do math and learn how to
your brain, you can eat stuff you like in moderation
and lose weight
without having to overdose on carrots and celery.
Don't be like everyone else. Make this your year
to lose weight--
but don't diet to make it happen. Eat real food
Have a great week and try not to think about the evil
says we have six more weeks of winter.
Personally, I think the Phil
who saw his shadow this past week is a robot imposter,
real groundhog named Phil is being held captive by
manufacturers somewhere in the Northeast. :-)
