There are all sorts of funny but pointed jokes on weight loss, and I want to share a few that have been passed on to me via the internet. They’re all cute, and they all have a grain of truth that makes me laugh, but many of my very favorites are by Randy Glasbergen, who (as it turns out), is a highly productive American cartoonist. Randy started his career at age 15 and was so successful that he dropped out of college after only 2 years and has spent the past 3 decades+ creating cartoons. If you enjoy these cartoons, you can find many more in his book, The Weird and Wonderful World of Diets.
Cartoons have a wonderful way of making us laugh, and that’s good. But, they also have a serious side, which is to make us realize how often we use faulty thinking to justify things that are simply not right. If we’re really going to lose weight and become healthier, we’re going to have to straighten out our thinking and then buckle down to the hard work of going after our goal, just like Randy Glasbergen, who’s been pumping out great cartoons for many years! I think he not only takes the cake, he deserves his cake, and if those of us who are committed to getting into good shape keep working hard to accomplish this worthy goal, then someday we might be able to take the cake too (at least a little). 🙂
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2).
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:9).
