I hate this Nutrisystem ad soooooo much. I saw it a long time ago in a magazine while I was getting a relaxing pedicure, and it made me want to throw things, which is not a relaxing feeling.
Jillian Barberie is pregnant in the first picture. But — and it’s a big but — the ad makes no mention of the pregnancy. None! There’s no mention of the pregnancy! It just says, “Results Not Typical.” Results Not Typical! You bet your ass that those results aren’t typical! If you were pregnant and had a baby and lost any weight, that’s not weight loss. That’s having a baby. If you have to give it a name and a social security number, that’s not weight loss.
I’m bringing this up because Devon Corneal wrote a great essay on pregnancy weight (and loss) for the Huffington Post today. Here’s that link.
While you’re here and this has nothing to do with anything, can magazines and blogs please stop documenting Suri Cruise’s every move? She had ice cream! Here she is on a play date! She’s at the park! Have a peek inside her pediatrician’s window!
Okay, I have to go find a towel to wipe the foam that’s building up on the sides of my mouth because I’m on a rant.
