OMG . . . I think my Deal a Meal wallet is still around the house somewhere, although I haven't seen it in years -- and Bargoo is correct; it was a good plan. I still dig out Richard's Sweatin tapes on occasion.
Have to say I also agree with Madriver about exchange-based programs (I'm diabetic and really need to track everything).
I never did the Ayds thing.
Anybody remember the Susan Powter craze -- It's Fat; your Fat (get the connection). I liked her for a while; during my totally fat-phobic phase.
And here we go for 2009 . . . Onward and Downward . . .
