Go on the 30 day diet.- I'm on it and so far I've lost 15 days

Mermaid or Whale?
I saw an add in a magazine featuring a young, thin and tanned woman, it was a gym add to anchorage you to get in shape, and this is what it said


My physical characteristics does not match those of the woman in the magazine, Really?! Yes! Big shocker. My responded

To Whom It May Concern:

Whales are always surrounded by friends [dolphins, sea lions, curious humans]. They have an active sex life, they get pregnant and have adorable baby whales. They have a wonderful time with dolphins, stuffing themselves with shrimp. They play and swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia, the Barren Sea and the coral reefs of Polynesia. Whales are wonderful singers and have even recorded CDs. They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans. They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.

Mermaids don't exist. If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the offices of psychoanalysts due to identity crisis. Fish or human? They don't have a sex life because they kill men who get close to them, not to mention how could they have sex? Therefore they don't have kids either. Not to mention who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?

The choice is perfectly clear to me: I want to be a whale.


We are in an age when the media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my family, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver and a coffee with my friends. With time we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren’t heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated, happy and pleasantly plump. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, ‘Good gosh, look how smart I am!

I want to be a whale, too. There is quote that I read that said,
I am not fat it is just that my brain has been filled up with so much information that it had to be distrubted to the rest of my body. It was posted on the bulletin board in the teachers lounge.
Thanks for the following. Nice to meet you, too.
Have a good day.

I couldn't agree more! I'm in no means fat, but I'm not going out of my way to not go get ice cream or go out to dinner and get food I actually enjoy & in no way will I ever calorie's just not me. However, I do believe as long as you exercise and are healthy (heart, cholesterol, etc) then eat what you want!

Anything Fits a Naked Man said...!!! You have NO idea what this post just did for me!! I've just returned from vacation where I spent a glutonous five days eating, drinking, and being merry. The WHOLE flight home, I've been thinking about how I need to get back on the stupid wagon and drop the pounds.

Your post makes me remember to cut myself some slack...thanks!!!

LOVE your letter about the whale and mermaid.! Great writing!

As for weight, I've never had a real big problem with it. I go up, I go down. It's all relative. lol. I'm losing my competitiveness with gravity. And that's okay. Getting older is like relaxing into new skin. Or...saggier skin. We eate icecream together too. No worries, just smiles and sticky faces. :o)
