Food and Shoes

I was in the city the other day and saw an ad for{MBT shoes}. If you don't own a pair, I highly encourage you to save up and buy some, despite their fashion flaws. They're fantastic. I get a workout when I'm not even trying.

I found the ads highly persuasive, not about shoes... but about not eating lunch that day. Here's a sampling of ads that I replaced the word shoe with something more appropriate to my, erm, compulsive thinking....

"Food is the opium for the masses. Promising happiness in a dazzling array of shapes and colors, it blinds us from seeing the truth..."

"Food isn't for us, it's against us. It's against our entire body."

"We shall fight food in the streets. We shall fight food in the office. We shall fight it in the park, the museum and the supermarket."

(but seriously, the shoes are amazing!)


I am declaring war against food and my appetite. I don't need you or the shackles you with which you have bound me to this filthy lifestyle. I hereby free myself from the narrowminded thought that I must shovel food in me to exist. You dull my senses and bleaken my days.

Go away food. You'll find no sympathy here.



good on you darlin' :)
thanks for your kind words by the way :)

he isn't a bad person
I'm just very strong-willed and he doesn't like being confronted - I'm the first person in his house to really threaten his authority - I know I shouldn't because it's his house, but I hate it when people expect you to respect them when they don't respect you - he's referred to himself as "the king of the castle" in the past, which he thinks is a good enough reason to boss everyone around and be rude in every possible way.

We're moving out soon, hopefully in the next couple of months, so things will get better then :)

good luck sweetie
stay strong :)


p.s - those shoes are interesting to say the least!

is it difficult to run in those shoes?

No, it's not too bad to run. You just have to get used to them, and then it's second nature! They liken it to the idea of walking on sand, but I think it's easier and more supportive than that.

omgoodness...those shoes look soooper cool =) thanks for the advice, I'm going to have to get my hands on them and try them out...anyway, my cleanse has started off rather shaky, but I suppose it's difficult to cut lose all at once. I feel emptier, that's for sure...and I'm glad I let go of dairy again. It's just so unnecessary. =)
