Week 10: I need a weight loss slogan

Ten weeks into the Weight Watchers program and I'm starting to lose my cynicism about the program. It's kind of hard to be snarky and sarcastic about something that's helped me lose 15 pounds so far.

Although I'm pretty sure I burned a few calories at this week's meeting trying not to laugh out loud at some of the positive affirmations the leader suggested. "I can do this," "I deserve to be thin," "I am my own best friend," and so on. I just couldn't stop thinking of Stuart Smalley saying "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggon it, people like me."

WW is big on this kind of thing. On the WW site there are message boards, and many of the people who post there have little slogans as part of their signature. Stuff like "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels" and "A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips," and "The only impossible journey is the one you never begin."

So in an attempt to be a more loyal WW member, I'm trying to come up with a slogan of my own. Something motivational. Something meaningful. Something that will ... Oh, who the hell am I kidding? Here's what I've got so far:

"Nothing tastes as good as thin feels. Except cake. But other than that."

"I'm throwing my boobs a going away party."

"I swear to God I am just big boned!"

"Never wear jeans on weigh-in day."

"Mmmmm, fat-free, sugar-free pudding."

Feel free to leave your weight loss slogan suggestions in the comments section. I love getting comments almost as much as I love cake.

I would never survive WW. I cringe at anything Pollyanna and would be banned for life from meetings.

I don't know... "I may be on a diet, but I still look better than you"?

Bleh, I hate rice cakes. Good luck with your WW program!
