Ways Losing Weight Is Like Buying A New Car

  • You’re concerned about trunk space
  • It helps if you know what you want
  • All the numbers that get thrown around can get you pretty confused
  • The professional that’s there to help you work things out often speaks a lot of gibberish
  • Your mileage may vary
  • The more you put in, the easy it is to get a deal done
  • It’s a good idea to research the options
  • It’s shouldn’t have to worry about maintenance for a while
  • To get what you want, you gotta pay the price
  • You’ll get the best results if you can keep from getting overly emotional
  • Insert your own “air bags” joke here
  • The right fuel will get your motor running more smoothly
  • The longer the process goes, the more you’ll probably get off in the end
  • The keys are in your own hands
  • Folks all around you take notice once you’ve done the deal
  • You know you’ll be safer in a new and improved body
  • Nothing quite like that feeling of pride and ownership
  • At the end of the day, you’re the one in the driver’s seat


  1. What?!? I must be up early if I'm first comment on a Jack Sh*t post. :)

    I like "the keys are in your own hands"

  2. Ah, awesome. And totally true.

  3. Ah this entry came a bit too late for me....hubby bought me a car just over a week ago....LOL...but you so right = brilliant.

  4. so very true, thanks for the morning chuckle.

  5. Fabulous post and oh, so true on all accounts. Can I add one cheesy one though? It's not what the body looks like that counts, it's how the engine runs.

  6. :-) You know how much I love this. YOU ARE A CHAMP!!!!!

  7. I like the one about the professionals, EVERY ONE of them is true, but the professionals speaking the gibberish kind of stands out because there are SO MANY and they all have a different form of gibberish (aka BS!)

  8. I keep singing "baby you can drive my car" lol :)

  9. concerned about trunk space lmao.
    Sure am, Last night...I went into the movie theatre last night and my rear end didn't srape the arms on the seat on either side. I didn't even realize that, the thought of NOT fitting didn't even cross my mind....nice.

  10. And we need something about that "new car smell"...whatcha got for that one, Jack?

  11. After a workout I no longer have that new car smell though.

    I think I am going to be the car that someone takes apart completely in the garage out back of the house and then ends up rebuilding into some wild creation... loved by some, while some just look at it and think *weird*. (oh wait that's now... well an all new weird)

    At foolsfitness we are currently on blocks after last nights volleyball.- Alan

    PS Hey I was thinking if they have plastic surgery would that be a kit car or bondo?

  12. You saved the best for last. At the end of the are in the driver's seat.

  13. Where is the turn off for the Freeway of Love?

  14. Love the last two: Nothing quite like that feeling of pride and ownership and At the end of the day, you’re the one in the driver’s seat

    Always great stuff Jack & always a meaning behind it! Read the message from Jack!

  15. Awesome. Especially a big fan of:

    "The right fuel will get your motor running more smoothly."

    I've always envisioned my inner works like the engine of a car, and the efficieny and power of that motor depends on the kind of fuel you put in there. Organic veggies, salmon, fruit, lean meat, nuts? You run smooth and fast. McDonalds, processed food, Coke, candy, etc? You're going to slump along emitting black, noxious fumes.

  16. Loved the analogy! So very true!

  17. I liked "Folks all around will take notice once you've done the deal" but all of them were good, and very true.
