Commercials… Commercials…

In the last 3 days I have been watching more tv than usual. Because I am home from work, relaxing, cleaning and just catching up on alot of things, I really like to have the background noise of the tv while I am doing these things.

With the networks I have been watching, I have noticed these commercials focus on one of two things this time of year. The first is losing weight, the second is finding love. I have seen countless commercials for Weight Watchers, Jenny Criag, Alli, eDiets, and numerous other programs. Then…

After looking over this story, I remembered a feature I saw on one of those TV magazines (Extra, Insider?)… you know the ones that feature the stars and what they are up to. (Just for full disclosure, I don’t normally watch these, it was on at the healthclub while I was working out). I didn’t actually hear the story, but it…
