The Toothbrush Diet

One of my New Year's resolutions is to lose weight. I've decided to go on the Toothbrush Diet. Every time I get the urge to eat between meals, I'll brush my teeth. Then my mouth will feel so fresh and clean, I won't want to eat. I'll lose weight and my dentist will love me.

Hey, I should market this diet. I'll write a book, go on Oprah, and make millions!

Sounds like a winner to me! Good luck.

After losing 90 lbs over the past 3 years...I tried to eat it all back on the last 6 months, so I'm back on track too with my thoughts focused on prayer, healthy foods, keeping the kids on track with schooling and trying to overcome my aversion to living without Michael because he decided to attend graduate school last year. *smile* love, Dani

I like it. I'm in.

But diets are supposed to have place names, these days. How about "Maureen's New Dee-troit Diet"??

Hmmmm...I just brushed my teeth as I got ready for bed. Then I wasn't sleep so I came to check my email. On my way to the computer I decided to get a few cookies and a glass of milk. :(

I did pause for a brief moment (as I filled up the glass of milk) remembering that I had brushed my teeth.

Oh, well, the cookies were already in my hand and the glass of milk was full. :o

Guess that's why I've never been able to declare "The diet has begun!" Not!

I've tried this, but I always end up thinking, "Oh, well. I can just brush again." :-)
