Over at The Frisky, our friend Wendy Atterberry talks about discovering that her desire to lose seven pounds is “as common as a winter cold.” She came to the realization after reading an essay in the Daily Mail about the same topic, which suggested that because seven pounds is realistic enough to accomplish yet significant enough to be noticeable, it was a kind of weight loss holy grail for women.
I’d like to say that I don’t give a shit about my weight, but I have to admit that I identify with all this. If you asked me whether I’d like to lose weight (I don’t know why you would ask me that, but for argument’s sake), I’d probably say — depending on how much I weighed at last weigh-in — that seven pounds would be nice.
What about you?
