Weight-Loss Cartoons to Make You Smile (And a Canadian Giveaway!)
Hey, hey, it’s Guest Bloggers’ Week, which means we’re bringing you some of the best and most inspiring posts from writers around the web! Click here to see all of the great guest posts that inspire, push us to get fitter, make us think in new ways and crack us the heck up!
I, Julie Faulkner (Jules to my friends), first hopped on the webcomics bandwagon with Promises Promises, a humorous (and sometimes honest) look at diet, fitness and the struggles and successes that come with achieving a healthy lifestyle (or at least making a good effort at it). I update the site every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Although Promises Promises may have started out four years ago as a vain attempt to write off a gym membership as a business expense, it has carried on. The first print collection, Starting Tomorrow, was released in August of 2011, with a second volume on its way, scheduled for the fall of 2012!
Here are a few samples of my work…enjoy! (Click on the images to make them larger.)
Can you relate to any of these weight-loss cartoons??? —Julie Faulkner

Simply leave a comment telling us the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you in your fitness adventures, and we’ll select four random CANADIAN (and only Canadians this time, guys!) readers to win in about a week. Good luck, and a big thanks to Jules for the laughs! —Jenn
According to her friends, Jules “barbecues hella good” and when not panhandling for mortgage payments, she divides her time between comics, storyboards for television, fundraising for breast cancer research, reading about health and fitness*, and actually going to the gym (occasionally).
*Jules may enjoy a healthy lifestyle but is NOT a fitness professional of any kind. At all. Not even a little bit.
