Odes to the Things I Can No Longer Enjoy...

Monday, April 11, 2011



I love Eating Well magazine and recently read the funniest article in the Jan/Feb issue. The article is aptly titled "Odes to the Things I Can No Longer Enjoy on My Damned Diet."

I admit it, I can be such a drama queen at times, so frustrated that I can no longer "enjoy" what others do enjoy. I have given some foods way too much importance... seriously.

How trivial and short-lived these blissful food experiences are compared to long-term successes, they are sooooo not worth the calories.

If you want a good laugh that just might boost your motivation, here is the link:

(Thanks to AMYBINTN for alerting me to this article... I dug out my past issue and enjoyed!)

    Just too, too funny. You know that as you age, these same delights, which may still please the palate no longer pleases the tummy.

    "Goodbye, whipped-cream-topped coffee drinks
    A coffee drink, a sundae and an angel had a baby together, and that baby is you. Sadly my days of slurping your 50-calorie-a-straw loads of frothy mirth have ended."

    Just ONE of the parts of that link that had me cracking up!!
    Thanks for sharing, this was hysterical and I've sent it off to 2 of my friends already for THEM to read!!
