A friend sold me on joining SparkPeople as a way to jump-start my moribund weight-loss goal. Ever since then (and this post won’t help), I’ve been getting spam comments (I call them Spomments) and emails about sure-fire methods. I got one this morning offering to help me lose by hypnosis. I’m like, sure, I’ll lose weight, but I’ll also go around quacking like a duck.
Okay, yes, I know that the power of suggestion can be a valuable tool in behavior modification. As a Mom, MomGoth knows this. Many’s the time I’ve said, “I strongly suggest you eat those peas.” Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t.
Anyway, SparkPeople was a good fit for me because it advocates and reinforces my own Sekrit 4 Wate Lohss: Eat less, move more. You heard it here, folks.
NOW, on a different subject: MomGoth loves her sweet little baby angels, you know she does, but so few of you leave comments! Come on–drop a line in the comment box. Chat with each other. We’re all friends here. I mean, aren’t we? While you’re at it, grab yourself a Sweet Little Baby Angel badge from my sidebar and post it on your own blog, if you so choose.
WRITING PROMPT: A character who doesn’t want to lose weight is bombarded with weight loss schemes, each sillier than the last.
p.s. I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today on the subject of honeybees and books about them.
