TT #94: diet quotes


Thirteen quotes on diet and weight(loss)
It's the most talked about subject in January and this time I go with the flow! Yes, I'm trying to lose weight too; aren't I always..? ;-)

  • If I had been around when Rubens was painting, I would have been revered as a fabulous model. Kate Moss? Well, she would have been the paintbrush. ~Dawn French
  • I'm on a seafood diet. I see food and I eat it.
  • In eating, a third of the stomach should be filled with food, a third with drink and the rest left empty. ~Talmud
  • The cardiologist's diet: If it tastes good, spit it out.
  • I tried every diet in the book. I tried some that weren’t in the book. I tried eating the book. It tasted better than most of the diets. ~Dolly Parton
  • If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.
  • I have gained and lost the same ten pounds so many times over and over again my cellulite must have déjà vu. ~Jane Wagner

  • Never eat more than you can lift. ~Miss Piggy

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted

Unfortunately the TT website doesn't exist anymore.That's a pity, but I'll keep on doing TT's and I hope everyone else will. The link to the code doesn't work (comes automatically with Mr. Linky). Leaving your link is extra important now, so please do!
update: There's a temporary solution: Thursday-13!
