Take notes today y’all… I’m about to unleash the hidden SECRET to weight loss… watch your backs, skinny gurus… I’m spilling it here! The secret to weight loss success is………. DRUMROLL……….. the Fat-O-Matic… and after you’ve spent millions on the Fat-O-Matic and still have the same spare tire around your middle (y’all, if you ever get stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire, give me a ring… I’ll jog on out with the one I keep in my gut… you know… just in case!), it’s time to dig out the ole common sense bone and go the FREE and SENSIBLE route.
It’s pretty much crucial to keep track of my calories whilst calorizing. I know we all have magical brains that automatically keep a tally of every food we eat and then… NO… no, we don’t… because there’s the numbdumb eating. You know the eating where you don’t realize you’re eating until you step on the scale a week later and gain 5 pounds? I call it numbdumb eating because it’s like I black out… a handful of crackers here, a few chips there (or a whole bag… KYLE CHANDLER!), a few spoonfulls of ice cream there and suddenly you’ve eaten 1000 extra calories and can’t remember a dang thing! A calorie does not count if you don’t have a plate in front of you… if it’s just a fork or a spoon and you are standing up, it’s totally not a calorie!! Or so I always tried to convince myself when I was numbdumbing around the house.
When I first started this whole weight losing buisness, I used a pen and a piece of paper to keep track of my calories… hello 1887, how are the pioneers doing? And then me and ma in her kerchief sat down to spin us some yarn from our freshly sheared sheep. **sighs** The good ole’ days! I just happened to be watching the Today Show one morning this past August when they had a lady on who had lost weight using this free site… of course I had to sign myself up for 2 reasons… 1.) It was FREE… and B.) It was FREE! Did I mention it was FREE? No, I’m not a cheap skate… what gave you that idea?
I signed up… it was super easy, user friendly, wayyyyy faster than my 1887 method… and FREE!! I didn’t start using the community of people on the site until a couple of months later in November, but I’ve met some great people since then who are in my same shoes and some who wear much smaller shoes, but are just great cheerleaders. I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend it, family and friends. There are all kinds of people on the site… those trying to lose 100+ pounds to those just trying to drop the pesky 10 pounds to those trying to gain weight and/or are body builders. MyFitnessPal (MFP)… It’s kind of like FaceBook for Weight Loss!
So, y’all… drop the Fat-O-Matic, head on over to my FREE lifesaver and sign up today: http://www.myfitnesspal.com It is totally worth it… and if I haven’t mentioned it yet… it’s FREE!
