10 ways to know it’s love. Sweet love.

When you can’t so clearly see your waistline, you can clearly see that it’s time to change something.

10 other ways to know that you’re moving in the wrong direction, if you have no time to examine your waist in the mirror.

1) If a stack of books with fat burning affirmations and mantras on your coffee table grows a little faster than the number on your bathroom scale, it’s time to think that something went wrong.

2) If you hear the words “three sets of 15 repetitions” and the only thing that comes up in your mind is how many repetitions you do going to your kitchen and exploring the fridge again and again, it’s time to think…

3) If your favorite fat burning anti-cellulite Body Cream makes your skin feel ‘like velvet’ but it doesn’t have a wondrous effect advertising assures you it does, it’s time to think…

4) If the only saying that crosses your mind in the evening is “It’s better to regret something you did than regret not doing it”, and you end up eating all the forbidden fruit in the fridge, and then you deeply regret, it’s time to think …

5) If you, without hesitation, blindly if necessary, can say 101 reasons not to resist the temptation to eat another piece of cake (the last one is we only live once, after all), it’s time to think…

6) If you think that you can endlessly look at fire, water and a waiter serving you a third dessert, it’s time to think …

7) If a layer of dust on your running sneakers is thicker than the layer on your roller skates in the attic (you left them there when you were seven), it’s time to think…

8) If a thought of sweating at the gym makes you sweat, it’s time to think…

9) If images of slender fashion models and 440-pound women on your fridge door no longer make you shudder, and simply saying, “Hey, girls!” you cheerfully take another cupcake box out of the fridge, it’s time to think …

10) If, after reading these 9 points, you ticked off mentally all of them, it’s too late to think…

  1. I think this is the best checklist I’ve seen for the weight conscious. I received the maximum points for each question. The only thing that saves me is genetics. I am the exact weight and size I was at 18 years old. When I was 18, telephones were black and had rotary dials with numbers printed beneath holes in the dial. You needed a building to house your computer. Things have changed, but not me. Now, if I eat a cupcake, I fall asleep. I have to make sure I don’t eat cupcakes and drive. Things could change rapidly if I do that. I accept the undeniable truth of number 10. It’s too early for a cupcake, I think I’ll just have coffee instead. Great post Marta! 🙂

    • There were no computers at all in Russia when the rest of the world had large computers, and you won’t believe but my mother has the same rotary phone in her kitchen even now, she doesn’t want to throw this antique away. And by the way, it works well 🙂 Thank you 🙂

      • I like your Mother 🙂 She sounds like a smart lady. No telling how much money she saved by not buying a new cell phone every year 🙂 I have never been to Russia but I served with Russian Army during UN missions. Russian soldiers and systems are very tough and strong like the old phone. We learned to never try to out drink a Russian soldier. We would just fall down and get all bruised, dirty, and scratched up. That is never good when CNN drops by to film us looking like knuckleheads. 🙂

      • Yes, it’s a pretty good comparison of Russian soldiers with Russian old phones. And that’s true, all other button phones failed to stand the test of time. Rotary phones were the height of fashion in Russia 20 years ago, and now we all have buttonless phones again. Fashion is definitely cyclical 🙂
