I watched Regis & Kelly yesterday. They are putting some of their staff on a diet. “Every few years we like to lighten the load around here”. They showed the people who were on the diet 3 years ago, their starting weights and end weights. Then, their starting weights NOW (because, naturally, they’ve gained it back!) This program started a month ago, I guess, so they were weighing everyone in yesterday. The first girl to weigh in? 118 pounds was her starting weight!! ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN POUNDS!! She stepped on the scale. 117 pounds. She lost a pound. “Oh, you know what they say,” says Kelly, “slow and steady!” She’s ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN FRICKIN’ POUNDS!! Why do they have her on a DIET!??!!??!!
Good question. I had to check it out for myself to believe it. I couldn’t figure out a way to embed this video but zone out through the advertisement and then pay close attention around the 1:10 minute mark. My heart breaks when Laurie weighs in and makes a little squinchy face when she learns that she’s only lost a pound plus change.
Sanity check? Can we get a sanity check in aisle 12? Thanks.
