Beth, come back to the lighter side...

Okay. I can do that.

I just heard a commercial that made me laugh.

"Eat all you want and still lose weight! If it wasn't true, we couldn't say it on TV!"

That's really what they said. What's really scary is that there are some who believe that if it's said on TV, then it must be true. Does anyone really believe that they can eat all they want and still lose weight? No. No, you can't. It doesn't work that way. It just doesn't. Everyone gets that...right?

I had planned on having rice with the Chicken Cacciatore, but discovered that I had lots more pasta than I had rice. I use the rice for lots of skillet dishes, so I decided to use pasta for the CC. It's almost ready, and I'm hungry.

So far, so good--Ken is on his way home. He should have left Cincinnati by now, and is on his way here.

I have to say thanks to Kentsmokerguy for all the Dino comments today--that was a lot of fun, and it was a breath of fresh air! It tickled me to no end.

Yep, I'm smiling now.

Would that be the Dallas steak house diet?

my husband likes to say that you can buy anything on earth off the TV for $19.99. Those infomercials are always touting things for that price!

Hey I'm game for the Steakhouse diet (winks). It's amazing what they won't try to pass for infinite knowledge on tv. Someone tried telling me today you don't necessarily have to exercise , just watch what food you eat. I couldn't help thinking....k, eat don't move , let atophy set in......Hmmm I would call that the
die-it to follow....(Common sense is need to exercise my brain). (Hugs) Indigo

In my younger days, Indigo, I could get by without exercising. I'm blessed with a high metabolism, but with quitting smoking and getting older, the high metabolism doesn't fix everything! Ken is very conscientious about working out, but I admit that I have yet to get into it. We have several pieces of workout equipment, and I know it's something I will need to start soon. I know I'll continue to feel better if I get busy. Gardening works wonders in the summer, but that only works for a few months a year!

I've seen that ad and I'm sure there are people who believe it, cause there are always those who fall for the unbelievable.  :)

That commerical has the same effect on me, sadly many will buy into it. If it were only that easy!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the comments, xaymaca and peyton. I think most of us have--or should have--figured out by now that things just don't come easy. Some things you have to work for. I find it sad that there are people that believe it can just happen magically!

Take care,
