The Secret To Weight Loss

Be rich. Or so I gathered from today's Oprah, which featured an inside peek at the life of, among others, Cindy Crawford and her husband. They were revealing their "must-haves" and guilty pleasures. Cindy's was- prepare yourself for the sheer decadence- a spoonful of white sugar in her morning tea. That was her caloric indulgence, I should say. Because her other indulgences were of the outrageous spending variety: expensive designer handbags, her own label of skincare products, and diamond-studded dog tags with her children's pictures embedded in them. Her husband's guilty pleasures were even better: a whole garage full of Harleys, a giant bar completely stocked with expensive liquors. And let's not forget the Malibu mansion right on the beach.
Now, both of these individuals work hard in their respective careers and have been very successful, so I do not begrudge them these things. But I'm just sayin'. If I could go out and buy five hundred dollar sparkly shoes to comfort myself when I was feeling down, I could probably resist that bowl of leftover Halloween candy.

What are you kidding? I wouldn't buy sparkly trinkets, man, I'd be buying truckloads of fun size candy! That's what would get me in trouble right there. :)

Ha, I've always thought that too. And if I was rich, I could afford all the cool gym equipement, personal trainers, nutritionist, and other people to help make me skinny.

Jess said...

Nah, I'd probably just wear the shoes while eating the candy!!

Jess said...

Yeah, when your biggest caloric indulgence is a spoonful of sugar, you need to distract yourself with shiny, expensive things. For sure.

Hahaha! Oh, to be rich.
(a WHOLE SPOONFUL of white sugar. Gawd, she's a pig *insert eye roll*)

So true! Retail therapy would SO replace chocolate therapy!

I would pay someone to resist it for me.

You're SO right about this. I've often thought, jeez, if I just had the money to buy myself a new wardrobe, I wouldn't stuff my face full of cake every time something goes horribly wrong. Ugh.
