The one way to get thin is to re-establish a purpose in life.

There is a lot of truth to the above statement.  Many times we have food as our purpose in life.

Anyone ever noticed the word "diet" is "die" with a cross after it?  I have given a lot of thought recently to the word "die" being in the word "diet."  Parts of me have "died".  Fourteen pounds to be exact.  I am on a die+t.

The origin of the word "diet" is from the Greek word "diaita" which means "prescribed way of living."

It is not easy being on a diet, it's hard work.  There are rewards as a result of dieting.  To use the old cliche, "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels."

Ain't it the truth?
