Anyone who has wedding stress, or their in-laws coming to stay should watch Deanna Troi’s rehearsal dinner for a little perspective:

Lwaxana Troi, mother of the bride, is WAY more annoying than my mother-in-law.

Of course, she is an alien, and a very important one, or so she tells everyone, as well as being a telepath in the most embarrassing way.

But it’s at dinner that Lwaxana Troi and her entourage really come into their own: her Lurch-like manservant, Mr Homn, has to bang a little gong in thanks every time she takes a mouthful of food. Have a look:

So that’s this week’s diet challenge: … yes, really… to increase our awareness of how much we’re eating by having someone sound a little gong-type thing every time you take a mouthful.

My kids are very excited.

This week’s challenges:

  • Make up some impressive titles to announce yourself at dinnertime.
  • Find something to use as the gong: if you don’t have a gong, use a bell, triangle, tambourine, or whatever you do have.
  • Ask someone who wouldn’t mind doing that every time you take a mouthful, or otherwise do it yourself.
  • Keep an eye on your portion sizes, and whether you’re eating distractedly, without noticing.

Good luck! Click to see how I got on 🙂

  5. So hilarious!! I totally love her. I think they kinda used a Vietnamese base – Buddhist have a gong, ya know! Just kidding – in a way. Next Gen all the way.
