I have to be honest here and admit that I couldn't even get through this article. Instead, I stopped and checked my calendar. I wanted to be sure I hadn't missed the rest of March.
Surely this was an April Fool's joke. Right?
When I realized it was no joke, I went back and tried to read the article again. And again, I couldn't get past the part in the first paragraph where it says that Weight Watchers will endorse McDonald's.
Now I'm not perfect. I fully admit that once in awhile, we do partake of the chemicals that are called McDonald's food. I fully admit, however, that it is NOT health food. I KNOW what I'm eating! I know that the meal I just had will NOT help me shed any pounds and might not even really be considered food. It is with FULL acceptance of this fact that I choose to partake.
I'm not one for calling something what it's not. I'm a very, "what you see is what you get" type of girl. And when I see (or hear) "McDonald's" I am NOT thinking...I'm gonna lose weight with this ultra-healthy health food.
I live in reality people!
Perhaps you'll have better luck than me at processing this. I still can't fathom how much McDonald's must have paid the powers-that-be at Weight Watchers to get them to agree to this. (Either that or Weight Watchers was in a LOT of trouble that none of us knew about. Because really. McDonald's?)
I think I better go to bed before I read something else. I don't think I could handle hearing something outlandish...like that Bill Clinton has sworn off cigars...or that George W. Bush has become a grade-school language arts teacher.
Yup. I just need to go to bed!
