If Guns Kill People – Ban Spoons!

If Guns Kill People – Then Spoons Make People Obese

This is the logic that brings choice back into the blame game. I will quote my Mom, “Life isn’t fair” and some people try to gain weight and others try to lose it. I’m in the latter category.

I actually live with someone who lost weight when he slept and I would weigh myself in the morning I would have gained weight. I swear he breathed it out and I breathed it in. Whose fault is that? Genetics? The universal thought is that the perfect couple complete each other? Sigh, Norm says he married me to keep warm at night – the heat of passion and all that – yeah, sure!

Most people, who are not having success at weight loss, have excuses. Some of these are valid – to a point. Can we sue our mothers for making us clean our plates at each meal? Can we sue advertisers for tempting us with seductive food commercials? Can we sue Tim Horton’s, McDonalds, Sara Lee etc? All the nutritional information is available but only if we look for it! Here’s a list of excuses/reasons people aren’t losing weight. Have YOU ever used one of these? Me, too! Food likes me so much it hangs around – around my hips of course!

Thanks for listening and I’m not giving up my spoon! I’ll take it with me.  ;D Diane
