Well…it is NOW almost the end of JANUARY… SO…WHAT are you doing??? What promises did you make to yourself? So far…how are you doing in the RESOLUTION DEPARTMENT??? Did you do WHAT you said to yourself …that which you made such a firm commitment to be doing to achieve that which you need to do …to make you…you know who…yourself a much healthier person???
I was remembering something in my past… working in our restaurant…and you know when it is your restaurant…someone will always stop in your office and ask if you would like to try some new dish of food…describing it so that…all you can say…”Yes..I’ll take a small taste.”
to be continued…
The restaurant that we had in Fort Lauderdale, Florida was right next door to a Doctor Hart’s office and directly across the street from the Broward General Hospital…and of course all along the street down from us more Doctor Offices.
So… with all of the Doctor Offices around…there came a day that I was not feeling too well and went to the Doctor Hart’s office…since it was so close to us.
After being examined…was telling the Doctor… that I would like to drop a few pounds…if there was some way to do it and that it would easy??? The Doctor said to me…”The best way to loose a few of those extra pounds…is to just stop eating a few of those pieces of pie…that I see you eating.”
I was shocked to hear him say that – – “he sees me eating a piece of pie” . So… I had to quiz him on this statement.
Dr. Hart then said…from the side of my building…facing your building….it is very easy to see into the Restaurant windows … across the front of you business…and your business is set back…since your customer parking lot is in font – – and if you are walking around with a small plate and fork in hand…it would seem to me…that you are having something sweet to eat.
Sometimes…one has to stop an give what they just heard a second thought or two. BUT… Dr. Hart continued with his story, saying…”When my practice was in CHICAGO…in a very tall building…there was a fairly set woman in to see me several times…and each and every time she gave me her word that she was avoiding all sweets…so that she could loose some weight…but needed pills…as she was not having any luck?”
“With a few minutes to spare” – said, the Doctor… was going to give me the proof of the pudding in this “weight gain case” as now he said…”I thought that I had a few minutes…so I waited about five minutes…left my office taking the elevator down to the main floor…and there was a large restaurant there… and a very nice lunch counter on the side area…and who do you think was sitting there?”
With that question…I answered…”the patient?” “You guessed right” – “there she was and had just been served a piece of pecan pie and a cup of coffee.” “I just had to go and take the seat next to her” – she looked to see “WHO” sat next to her…when she saw that it was me…immediately got up…leaving the pie and coffee…did not say a word…must have been all shades of red, embarrassed…to see me…and would you believe that she never came back to my office. So…I know it is hard to loose weight – but since that happened…I do not believe all I hear about doing without sweets!”
