too skinny

It seems that with each new year come new diet products. We're bombarded with promises of a "new you" and hundreds of ways to get your bod ready for the beach just in time for summer. When was the last time you saw an ad like this?


This ad promises not only "solid, naturally attractive flesh" but along with that "new charm and a new winning personality." All in six weeks.

Happy new year! :)

Oh my word! That is fantastic. I wish I could make money by "helping" people gain weight....it would be so easy. It's called the Bacon and Pepsi diet. :)

I'm trying to recall the last time someone said I was too skinny LOL! I usually wish for less "solid flesh!" :)

Times have sure changed. I was just reading about how photo-shop can make everyone perfect these days.

Thanks for posting this Crystal! What a fun and interesting peek into the past.
