Instant Weight Loss
Second of all, let me tell you about an exciting quick weight loss program I discovered yesterday, and which worked ... instantly.
I was at a grocery store, which is like stores are, all over the world. Self-help stores, with their rows and rows of products, their lanes, their trolleys, are still a bit of a novelty for many people who do not live in affluent urban areas.
As I hunted for what I wanted, I noticed a young couple beside me, talking among themselves. They were obviously not well-to-do, self-conscious, and flustered at being in an air-conditioned store where 'rich people' shopped.
They wanted to buy a single candy bar of a particular brand, and which costs less than 1 cent. The lady was clutching that 1 cent in one hand, and clutching her husband with the other. I couldn't help but overhear them as they debated endlessly how no one was attending to them, what they were supposed to do, what the 'system' was at the store.
Exasperated that there was this huge display of candy of every brand imaginable, right in front of them, I finally turned around and said, rather sternly, I must confess, "This is a self-help store. All you have to do is pick up the candy you want, and then go to the counter and pay for it. No attendent is going to come here and do it for you".
The young man turned towards me and said plaintively, "How can we pick up the candy by ourselves? We are both blind!"
Now, I have struggled with a weight problem all my life. Worked out like crazy, gone on starvation diets, tried all kinds of 'cures' ... but I must say, nothing has ever made me feel so small, instantly.
