Cleverly written. What a good idea. Thank you.
LOL! Excellent article! It provided great coping skills for me.
Great article. I can relate. Prior to my 28 pound weight loss I could eat my share of snickers. I forgot all about broccoli, cauliflower, and greens. But thanks to SP and my awesome SparkFriends I got the encouragement and inspiration I needed to succeed. Way to go!! Thanks for sharing this article!!
I shared this with Pop. He was bubbling with laughter.
yes it is hard to do
Sparkpeople should do this kind of thing more often.
Besides sounding funny, there is a lot of truth behind this article. I wanted to share it with family and friends. I was hoping it might also help them.
Those are so funny!!
...but so true. :o)
I love these stories. They were so funny and I love the fact that SparkPeople is encouraging people to demonstrate their talents, the things that help define who they are.
I loved the last story! I, too, have an issue with pizza. I'm okay at avoiding it but once I get to have some, I can't just stop at one slice. I often order a large pizza and eat the whole thing by myself. At 5'1" I feel like that's almost impressive. The pizza story gave me an interesting perspective. While it was definitely a goofy story, I now know how I'm going to handle my extra cheesy greasy foe. I hope there will be more stories in the future!
What a great way to add some humor to our weight loss journey!
