The Diet Club Gives Member a Fat Ovation For Eating a Cookie By Erm a Bombcck A panel of nutrition experts discovered recently that more people go on diets in May than any other month in the year the reason being they begin to worry about how they'll look in a swimsuit. (Frankly, it's been on my mind since February when I rode a bicycle and my legs still rubbed together.) The plain, simple truth is most people can find more reasons for eating than eating. I found this out when I used to go to my diet meetings where we would confess why we had not lost weight. The excuses dieters give for eating are enough to blow your mind. One woman would stand up and say, "I had to go off my diet because I am expect- ing." "Expecting asked the leader. My mother-in-law and if I don't get something in my stomach every three hours I become nauseated." Marriayv Contract The next one would say, "I gained weight because it's in my marriage contract." "How do you figure asked the leader coldly. "Well, my husband used to work the first shift, but he got bumped to the second trick which means he works from 3 to 11. When he comes in a little after midnight, he hates to eat alone and when we got married we promised to love one another through thick and thin, and these are our thick years and there isn't much I can do about it until he goes back on days." My favorite story was a woman who ate a cookie. When asked why she fell off her diet for a cookie, she took a deep breath and with her eyes misting said, "I ate a cookie because I missed the elevator." We were all intrigued, including the leader who said, "Do you want to tell us about 1 Tooth she began, "it all began when I chipped my tooth on a piece of pizza crust and went to town to see my dentist. I parked in a garage near a department store and since I was early I went over to buy a skirt zipper and I ran into an old boyfriend who couldn't stop staring at my chipped tooth and it started to rain and I wasn't wearing a slip and I remembered I had forgotten (or was it forgotten to remember) to take the chops out of the freezer and I missed two traffic lights thinking about It and I was late to my dentist and he said my gums were going and a lot of people my age went into braces and when I got to the garage It was o'clock and my kids were locked out for the third time this week and they had just opened up this new bakery on the street level of the garage and if I missed this elevator I knew sucking on my car keys wouldn't give me the nourishment I needed. The door slammed in my face and I ate I he lousy We gave her a fat ovation. Couvrlgtil I9N, Flrio CntcrprivM. inc. I XV-., Photo bv U W, Word
