Coupons for Cosmetic Surgery

6 Mar

I love a great deal! Especially when its something I’m in the market for, and not just anything I walk by and see a red sticker on and feel I have to grab. I like a deal thats timely and relevant, that’s why I subscribe to a daily deal service that sends me coupons on deals around my city. A majority of them are for food, but I think I’m past the Try Something New = New Place to Stuff My Face, so a majority of them are hugely ignored.

Until I got one I couldn’t help but not delete and let linger in my inbox for a few hours. There is a new procedure that is non invasive and laser beams all the fat cells from your body. It’s like having your own personal Scotty who will beam up your fat into oblivion. I was intrigued. I believe the procedure is typically a few sessions and they were offering one session for under $100 with a guarantee to permanently lose 1-2 inches. For anyone who watches Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim had this procedure done in the comfort of her home…all while chomping down a slice of pizza.

So I’m doing this thing now where I consult with my fiance on all major decisions and purchases. I guess it’s like a partnership..no one makes a deal without clueing in the other. πŸ™‚ I’m like, hey, there is this great deal and what would otherwise cost you (notice the “You”) a fortune is only going to cost you a fraction of that if we buy within the next 21 hours! Yayy!!

I had a much warmer reception. He wasn’t as excited as I was, and ultimately the e-mail (and FABULOUS deal) was deleted from my inbox.

Since I’m an avid shopper I know a great deal like that comes around more than once. I just hope that next time for me, the deal is on!


Cutting it out – literally

6 Dec

“The Swan” is reborn and this time instead of people born with slight to serious physical disfigurements, it’s newly engaged women who instead of nurturing their new relationship, engage in challenges to Β win plastic surgery off of their body wish list.


I’ve never been more appalled. What is this obsession we have with our appearance? Granted, there are people who get these surgeries every day, but one contestant didn’t even have her engagement ring any longer because she pawned it to pay her car note! These are the type of women on the show. The ironic thing was, all the other contestants looked down on her for this move. Really?? I’m sure if there was a challenge to win a new engagement ring, they would all do it, instead of cherishing whatever it is there fiance could afford to provide them at the time. They are already leaving their lives for weeks at a time for a chance to get liposuction, botox, or fix the little bump on their nose (that no one even notices)! These women want change, by any means necessary. Pure, physical change. They want to fix that something here, or that bothersome thing there on their body or face. The same body and face their fiance’s looked at for probably years and still said, I want to spend the rest of my life with this person. I really wonder how they feel about them joining the show.

I too have fallen victim with this body image obsession. Sure, I’m going about it a different way, but does that make it any better? If I were offered a way to get free liposuction–would I? (hmm :)) Every week, I post my measurements on this blog and every Tuesday, I have anxiety over what that photo will look like or what the tape is going to read. Have I changed much about my day-to-day life? …not really. I workout a ton more than I have before, and I’m trying to make better food decisions..really I am. πŸ™‚ I know I have a goal, and I know I’m not going to reach it overnight. Will I kill myself if I don’t make my goal, I mean, that’s a bit drastic so of course not. Will I pay the photographer to photoshop that extra bit of skin under my chin…YES!!! (kidding..but hmm. That is an idea!)

Maybe I’m being to harsh…what do you think Public?? Have you seen this show? Do you think it’s okay to use cosmetic surgery to achieve your weight loss goals?

Answer me so I can stop these 2 1 questions running rampant in my mind! πŸ™‚
