Seriously…Weight Watchers?Posted: October 25, 2011
I received an email from Weight Watchers yesterday about surviving Halloween. Naturally, I immediately clicked on the article because as you can probably guess this super bovine can consume an entire bag of Halloween miniatures in a single bound…they are miniatures after all. After reading the article I can honestly tell you I am not feeling any better about my impending candy binge.
Here are their suggestions:
#1 “Everything in moderation.” Really? If I could do that I wouldn’t be fat in the first place.
#2 “Keep Count” – That is the worst idea I have heard all day. Do you know how mortifying it is to see all those little wrappers piled up in front of you? I suppose that’s the point but seriously who needs that drama?
#3 “Make a smarter choice” – Gee, I wish I had thought of that. Let’s see Apple, Snickers Bar, Apple, Snickers Bar…..what is a Bovine going to choose?
#4 “Don’t throw in the towel” – I actually like this one because I do need the reminder. As I mentioned in my last post, I tend to quit when I screw up. In the immortal words of the beautiful Scarlett O’Hara- “Tomorrow is another day.” This should become my Bovine mantra. I wonder if that would make Ms. Scarlett mad…to know that she is inspiration to a Bovine.
#5 “Rate Your Hunger” – So hungry only chocolate can fill me up…after all, it’s Halloween. That was easy.
#6 “Enlist reinforcements” – I’m thinking the calves will gladly eat all their candy before I can get my hooves on it but that will probably lead to all kinds of belly aches which I so can’t deal with and loads of hyper active calves which the Bull most definitely can’t deal with. So we’re probably better off if I eat the candy….really, I’m taking one for the herd.
