A new weight loss method

Just when I thought those last two stinking little pounds would NOT come off, I got a cold. Since workouts require more lung capacity than the dragon is currently allowing, those have been eliminated. But no scratchy throat is gonna come between me and mah fewd. No way, no how. Somehow I manage to shovel it in between breaths. Delicious, delicious fooooooood. Where was I? Right, not working out but still eating. That's a recipe for disaster. Until...the cough.

You wanna lose a pound? Catch yourself this loverly little cold and cough, cough, cough your way to your goal weight! How does it work? Well I'll tell ya. You cough and cough and COUGH until eventually the ole gag reflex kicks in and blam, out comes dinner.

Then you panic because said dinner was not bright red when you ate it. And then you remember that the cherry cough drop you had for dessert was in fact bright red. Phew.

I do not recommend this weight loss method. The other side effects are not worth it. In fact, just between you and me, I would rather work out than deal with this fricken cold for one more minute. (Steps aside as lightening strikes, barely missing her.)

I hope that cold goes away soon Lori and it takes the last pound you want to lose with it! --Love, Mom

Ugh, I think I caught your cold through the computer. At least I am sniffly and my throat hurts. I hope you feel better soon, and I so don't want to catch the rest of your ailment. EW!

Have you ever seen the movie "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion?" If not, you should, it is ridiculous and I love it. Anyhoo, one of my favorite movie quotes of all time is from that movie.
Michelle: Remember the prom? You got so thin by then.
Romy: Oh I know. I was so lucky getting mono. That was like the best diet ever.

Dr. Cuz, I love that line too. I saw a Romy & Michele prequel this weekend on the Soap channel starring none other than Katherine Heigl. I could only stand 5 minutes before I had to turn it.
