The Ultimate Dieting Aid

I’ve let my weight creep back up over the last two years… two years in which I’ve battled severe depression. I have the best of intentions to eat less and exercise more, but depression makes it so easy to put both goals off.

Today, FedEx dropped off a package containing what pretty much has to be the ultimate dieting aid:

One pound of human fat

Yep. It’s a classroom anatomy model of one pound of human fat. I figure if I stick this in the kitchen where I’ll see it when I go on a nighttime foraging mission (I have a problem with sleep-snacking), I might think twice.

(Want to order your own?

It’ll run you about $23, plus shipping. But as a reminder of the need to diet — it’s priceless.)
