Doggone blog ads!
I looked at my blog this morning and saw a BlogHer ad for Weight Watchers. Sigh-h-h.
At work announcements are made over the P.A. saying "The weight loss group for really fat employees who want to humiliate themselves will be meeting in the cafeteria at 11:30. New members are welcome to attend." Ack-k-k.
The grocery store has magazines at the check-out lane with headlines saying "How celebrities swallow cotton balls and drink water to lose weight and stay fit". Or "How this lady lost 167 lbs and kept it off for 3 decades by eating only guppies and cream cheese!!!" Arg-g-g.
I get emails "Do you want to lose weight fast?" "Do you want to lose weight now?" "Do you want to lose weight and still eat all you want?" "Do you want to be more attractive to that woman in your life?" HUH? Gr-r-r.
Of course I take all of those things personally and LOUDLY ask "What are you saying?????"
So yeah. This morning I clicked on an ad on my own blog and joined Weight Watchers. I know that most people who do it have success with it. I dabbled in it about 7 years ago and it was working for me until something happened that put a damper on it for me and I stopped. But I need help.
Going to my doctor and yelling at him, telling him "I'm tired, have no energy and am gaining weight in leaps and bounds and I want you to FIX IT!!!!" hasn't worked. Doing it on my own hasn't worked. Thyroid meds? Nope. I thought Nutrisystem would be the answer but it wasn't. Diet tea? Uh uh. Diet pills from the doctor? Nah. And no I won't try that oily stool stuff 'Alli'.
Weight Watchers. I hope to be a success story.
Do you think I'll get paid for clicking on the ad on my own blog? I mean, I did join!
