No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I saw a commercial last night that was funny and brilliant!
It was an ad for some type of yogurt, and the premise was, eat this yogurt, and you'll be so satisfied you'll be able to stick to your diet.
A woman who is trying to eat healthy is followed around her office all day by a man in a suit with a megaphone. All he does is yell things:
"Cookie. Cookie. Coooookkkiieee."
"Chips! Chips! Chips!"
And other things like that. At the end of the day she turns to the little man and says with a smile, "NOT gonna happen!"
It made me laugh because I have a "man" like that in my head! I don't actually see a man (not hallucinating, don't worry!) but it really does feel like there is a force at work pushing me toward my old snack habits. Loud, relentless, hard to ignore, like an annoying younger sibling.
From now on, whenever I feel about to surrender to these habits, I'm going to picture this commercial, which will make me laugh but at the same time remind me that I can be stronger than these annoying little habits.
