Ear stapling and other thoughts

     Yup, ear stapling for weight loss.   It sounds like a quack thing and looks pretty barberic but there has been some real success with it.  I am thinking of having it done.  By someone who does it alot and uses sterile tech. of course.  Actually about 4 of us nurses are thinking about it.  If I do I will let you know what happens and if it works.

   Last night at work they had a pot luck for me for my birthday,  oh boy what great food.  We had barbeque ribs, some type of potato casserole, cheesecake,  cake, potato salad, not a diet food in sight.  It was really good but I sure am feeling chubby tubby today.  Anyway. Rick just got home with supper, also not diet food, pizza.  Obviously  I have fallen far off the wagon.  Not for long though.  See ya later.

   OK, it is now after supper and I am still researching the ear staple.  The more I read the more what I suspected come to light.  That is why I usually don't get suckered into things because I start out with an open mind and then read, read, read.  I didn't get to be the advanced age of 52 without having fallen for some of the lose weight quick schemes out there, but I do realize the only really effective way to lose weight is to eat right and portion control.  Maybe if I staple my mouth shut!

Sometimes you just gotta splurge, and I'd say your birthday is a good 'nuf reason.  Course, you gotta get back on the wagon ;)  Happy birthday, BTW.  Ear stapling...hmmm, let me know how that goes!  Take care...

I never had my ear stapled, but back in the 70s when I was desperate to lose weight, I had acupuncture for weight loss -- a pin was placed in my ear and I was told to turn it whenever I had cravings for food. So I would turn the pin....and THEN run to the refrigerator to eat. Bottom line? It didn't do a thing for me and I didn't lose an ounce....

Luckily, later in life I learned that the only way to lose weight in a healthy and natural way is to combine eating right with vigorous exercise. Anything else is a fad, a gimmick, and a waste of money!

By the way, happy birthday!!
