I’ve discovered it! There are two things that must happen:
1. Get so sick that every time you swallow it feels like shards of glass are scraping your throat on the way down. (Sounds delightful, doesn’t it?) It will definitely lower your caloric intake.
2. When your kids go outside to play in the water, put on your swim suit, too! You’re all alone with a couple of toddlers, why not get a tan? Plus, every few minutes you’ll look down at your flub-a-licious body and decide that a salad is not such a bad choice for lunch.
