The answer to weight gain – yes, I found it!
Posted September 10, 2008on:
While sitting at the computer, I came upon this discovery regarding weight gain…..
…. a new study published in the Journal of Consumer Research may give viewers pause about all the death they’re routinely letting into their living rooms. Apparently, must-bleed-TV may just make you eat and shop more.
The article is referring to the Law & Order series, CSI, and all the other blood, guts, and killing shows.
I’m a fanatic of Law & Order and I don’t care how many times I view the same episode – I get giddy when I find out there’s a Law & Order marathon on!
However, now, I’ll try and see if I eat while watching or even shop while watching! LOL
A few summers ago I had a severe case of poison ivy requiring multiple shots and oral steroids – since I couldn’t sleep because of the itching, I would shop online – what else is there to do at 3 a.m.? Yep, I bought lots and the credit card can show it!
I did mention to my Dr. that I couldn’t take anymore steroid shots or pills because it made me buy on ebay, his comment was “well, that could make you do things you wouldn’t ordinarily do, but I doubt it made you shop on ebay”….trust me, this turned into a heated conversation and guess what “I won!” He finally relented and said “well, maybe it did” – this is the part of the conversation hubby heard! LOL
