False advertising alert! Laughter is good but I’m not sure if you can actually laugh weight off, although laughter might help you avoid overeating. I mean it is hard to chew and laugh at the same time. Now in all seriousness, thank you for your support and sharing your own stories with me last month. It can be incredibly disheartening when good health always seems out of reach and the fault lies with you. Knowing others are working through this journey makes me feel braver and not so alone. I hope it does the same for you.
I plan to share more a-has and observations and plans regarding my revamped get healthy journey over the next few weeks but don’t worry – it’s not going to be all drama, drama, drama either. Nope. That’s not how I roll. Today we ‘re laughing at dieting, celebrating our chubbiness and our love of cookies, doughnuts or whatever food you lust after. 😀
Oh, I Wanna Laugh with Somebody. Okay, Maybe Not Some *Body*. I’d Accept a Potato Chip as an Acceptable Laughing Partner.
I’d also accept a slice of cheese pizza, a scoop of mashed potatoes or a bowl of spaghetti. Or a brownie. Brownies are cool too. Fine. I’ll take a person too, as long as they have chocolate chip cookies. Or lasagna.
Me neither. Those scams are the worst and I’m no fool.
This is true for me too. I like almost all food. I cannot say the same about people.
This is also true for me.
Seriously. Those serving sizes are very, very judgmental. Also, I accept the challenge that you think this casserole or pizza feeds four people, cuz I ate the whole damn thing. Oh. That’s a bad thing. Now you tell me.
Sweetie, I can relate. And that, my friend, is the real false advertising – only other models look good in some of the clothes that they try to sell to us mortal women with actual hips, thighs and booties versus perfect model bodies.
Yup. It’s just not realistic, people.

Getting healthy isn’t easy for me but it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try to make it a bit fun, right? It might make getting up and running up and down stairs (let’s be real, I walk those damn stairs, not run them) or eating a plain salad easier or more fun or …. something.
P.S. No, you are not crazy. All the titles reference an 80s/90s song with a slight modification or two. Can you name them?

I got a kick out of all of these.
That little girl in that outfit compared to the ‘model” – that’s my life. & why I hate shopping.
YOU DONT KNOW ME SERVING SIZE!!! I feel that. I hate when I get something & think, oh, the calories aren’t bad on this & find its for like a crumb. STOP IT!
I’m feeling the Whitney & is the other one Celine? If not, I’m singing her song regardless 🙂 LOL
have a great day friend. Thanks for the laughs!
Me too, Rebecca Jo. I’ll see something super cute on the model/mannequin and take into the dressing room and it won’t look remotely anything like it did on them. So depressing. YES! When I was actually doing really good with my diet that was so frustrating. I’d see something with reasonable calorie/fat amounts then discover the serving size was approximately one tablespoon. 😀
The title is C+C Music Factory – Gonna Make Ya Sweat Now. Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance with Somebody Who Loves Me. And Cyndi Lauder – I Drove All Night, although Celine Dion did a version of it too.
Lol. These are cute. I agree 100%- I definitely love food more than most people 😉 And the way clothes fit models (ESPECIALLY one pieces like that) never ever fit me correctly. Too short and chubby 🙂 Haha!
I love one-piece jumpsuits but they fit me all wrong too. Too short, too chubby is my problem too. But I so want one!!!
kathy @ more coffee, less talky says
laughter is the best medicine and it’s important to stay positive during any journey. i cackled at the serving size one. YOU DONT KNOW MY LIFE serving size!
Seriously, I think serving size is a bunch of mumbo jumbo (okay, not really but … sometimes) and that too often recipe makers see how bad their recipe is calorie/fat-wise, so they make the serving sizes teeny weeny so at first glance the number seem more palatable. Just be honest. This dish is delicious but fattening, so be smart.
