she went from a Size 10 to a Size 2
Maybe she's 4'9".

Oh yeah VAGriller, I hate the pressure that are put on kids/husbands/bfs to buy all these diamonds, during the holidays 'to show your love'.

One thing rings true in all of these - the companies and advertisers really don't care what size we are, what our family situations are or anything else. They are greedy and want to sell any of us whatever they can whether it is affordable or not. We DO have the power to say NO and I suggest we use it whenever we don't need something for sure. My life won't be that much better if I get to a size 2, buy a new SUV, chew the "right" gum, or use the right skin care or hair products. I certainly wish it was as easy to let younger people realize that so they don't get so hung up on having to have the "right stuff" according to ad men/women.

Be an organ donor; give your heart to Jesus.
Exercise daily; walk with the Lord.

Radio jingles are worse. They stick in your mind longer.

I dislike any commercial were they think they have to "yell" to sell their product. Like Qxi Clean. It is very aggravating.

Actually - I find all of the diet product commercials annoying & borderline criminal.

Eat smaller portions of better-quality food & exercise more. Voila - sensible & safe weight loss & better health. No processed diet food deliveries, no pills, no $$ spent poorly.
