Dear John Letter

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Dear Cold Stone Creamery, Godiva Chocolatier, M&Ms, Papa John's Pizza, The Curry House, Rubio's, Marie Callender's; KFC; Carl's Jr. and all other food related e-mails I've subscribed to,

I've been ignoring your e-mails for the past 5 months, but you clearly can't take a hint. I'm not the girl I used to be. The one that used every coupon for free this or discounted that. (Yes, the old: it's not you, it's me bit.)
I'm breaking up with you because I'm with SparkPeople now. We've been on an amazing journey together since last August. The SparkPeople e-mails aren't bombarded with high calorie food 'deals' that will go straight to my hips and thighs. The e-mails motivate me, they're positive and uplifting, it's like having a cheerleader in my inbox everyday!
So consider this our last exchange.
I'll be unsubscribing shortly.
-Dee

    Dee: That is the best Dear John letter ever. Maybe some of these restaurants etc will make some healthy changes on their menus if enough of us let them know we are done with the high fat, high calorie, bad for our heart food. You rock. emoticon

    You go girl! We all need to end our unhealthy relationships with those companies until they offer better options!

I've unsubscribed from those emails, too! Instead, I've signed up for coupons from Starkist, Green Giant, and other companies that sell foods that are health friendly! When I go to the store, if they have BOGO deals on fruit and veggies, I buy them, and I make eating them my goal for the week. Last week was BOGO at Winn-Dixie on local sweet Louisiana strawberries and blackberries, too! With some creamy Greek yogurt, they were so much better than pizza!!!

    Ok. You did it - I just now threw away my "Taco Tuesday" Del Taco coupons. In fact, I just tossed my entire "menu/coupon" drawer into the trash. DONE.

    Oh hey great idea to unsubscribe !! I was kinda put off last two years - no more free (decent) meals for my birthday. Instead it was all birthday cake this, birthday shooter that, "decadent" birthday treat of some other kind obviously loaded with poor quality sweetners that Mother Nature never intended. I didn't redrawn a single one e en when I printed one (maybe the one from HuHoy where I select veggies and a few bits or noodles & beef or chicken...).
