But tonight I'll be at the Buffet!"
If you didn't understand I was just singing the jingle from one of those commercials, using real people (instead of Victoria Secret Models) as actors
doing there thing like singing (this jingle), taking the elevator (instead of stairs), and one is even lounging on the sofa! The reason; To promote
Oh but there are so many others. Another that sticks out in my mind lately is of Jennifer Hudson. She is singing but it is her a few years ago and
then the todays Jennifer comes out much skinner and joins in. The song consists the phrase,"I believe in miracles and I believe in me." The reason; To
promote Weight Watchers
Now I must mention the many shows like, "The Biggest Loser," and A reality show I watched the other night (forgot the name) but people that were like
600lbs, got to have their stomachs stapled for free so that they could lose the weight. (or die is what they keep saying)
My point of this thread is this, Is Americans so obese that we are litterally getting this stuff shoved down our throats? At the local bookstores you
can go to the diet section and find every kind of diet imaginable, all saying they work. Diet Supplement commercals are another biggie, and they all
make you believe its a magic pill that really works.
I am about 15 pouncs over what I should be according to that health chart they show you by heighth at the doctors. But let me just say I am happy and
do try and eat healthy. I don't understand why almost all people think skinny is pretty. The old saying "Beauty comes from within" has recently been
added too. The addition is that only ugly people say that.
I think its sad, and these commercials drive me Nuts! I believe these and the shows are what drive people to have eatting disorders like Anorexia, and
Buliemia. (hoped I spelled those correctly) Shouldn't we all just strive to be happy just the way we are?
