Reality Check

I went on a diet a few months ago and believe it or not, it has been pretty successful. I have lost over 60 pounds since January. Things are looking up.

I dare you to disagree.

You don't believe me? Obviously, if I had not gone on a diet, I would have gained 55 pounds, so while my scale may only show a loss of 5 pounds I actually lost 60 pounds. I think I'll go out for some Mexican food tonight to celebrate my achievement.

Think of this next time you hear that our government has saved 10,000 jobs or reduced our deficit by $200 billion. What is really going on?
