ON THE BACK BURNER

September 2

I have had an ah ha moment. I know what causes people to gain weight. Couches. When you sit around on a couch, you gain weight. It's not the food . It's the couch. I am so glad that I figured this out before I became attached to my couch. I came to this realization by sitting on the couch for a few days while my leg was healing. I was always hungry for whatever I didn't have in the house. The fridge wasn't helpful. Nothing was immediately eatable in the freezer. Sometimes a hidden , frozen cookie or brownie works, but there were none of those. I did get a wonderful surprise in the mail from a daughter in law, two Zabar bagels. Heated in a toaster oven with whipped butter it was a treat. I'm talking bagel here, not white bread with a hole, as my Grandson describes bagels bought anywhere outside of New York, preferably, Brooklyn, New York. But I still wanted more of something. That's because I was still sitting on the couch. As soon as I can get off of the couch, I am going to prove my new theory. My hypothesis will be that sitting on a couch makes you want to eat . I'll be famous for my new diet method. Get rid of all couches in your house and you won't have cravings for whatever isn't in your fridge or freezer. Why didn't I think of this before.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
