Time Machine...yeah right.

I saw a billboard with a picture of some exercise equipment, an all-in-one workout contraption.  The slogan began: "Time machine...."

My mind jumped to the conclusion that exercising would make you appear and/or feel younger, thus taking you back in time.  But then I continued reading: " can take you back to size 5."

How disappointing.  Who says 5 is the optimal size?  What does that say about all other body shapes and sizes?

Way to fuel the distorted body image problems that plague our society, advertisers.  Here's my fitness rebuttal for advertising campaigns such as that...

  1. Size 5? Do I want to be 11 years old again? I jumped right through 5 and on to 7/8 in one summer. Same with shoes!

    Besides, I see pictures of women our age who have lost weight down to a size 6 or 8 or whatever, and they don't have the tiny waist and skinny curves they used to. Nope. Let's face it, we're in a different season of life. I don't want to go back in time because I know the things I had to go through to get to my age and I would not care to do them again.
