So I have this friend...

I have a friend who wanted to lose 25 lbs by her birthday which is now one month away. Anyway, at this point, my friend has lost and gained the same 5 lbs so many times that she's about to give up. Here are a few COMPLETELY MADE UP signs that my friend's plan isn't going to happen OR SOMETHING. Remember these examples are totally fabricated and in no way represent reality. Also, the names have been changed to protect the innocent.

  • Half of her 20 minute workout this morning was the warm up cool down.
  • She tried Lisa Rinna's "Dance Body Beautiful: Learn and Burn" workout and Lisa's black unitard with gold belt and boring, repetitious movements make my friend flashback to the Jane Fonda videos of old.
  • She finished exercising and there is not a single drop of sweat on her workout clothes.
  • She is routinely consuming a serving of soy chocolate pudding mixed with vegan chocolate chips. At 9:15pm. And chasing it with a handful of organic corn nuts.
  • Her hubby looks over from the couch and says "I can't believe you just ate an entire bag of [baked] barbecue potato chips in one sitting." And she responded "I know, they need to make bigger bags."

Tonight D says to me, "I ate that entire box of chocolate chip cookie dough candies." I sheepishly reply that I am eating brown sugar directly out of the container ... and it wasn't a lie. I was hiding it from him. Sigh is right.

There is something quite comforting in knowing that even vegans go all out on junk food sometimes. :)

It might be time for a piece of exercise equipment. That way you could get your exercise in and watch a tv show at the same time! --Mom

Chocolate soy pudding and corn nuts? I think that would be better if you ate the corn nuts first.

Dude, a friend I know had her kid a little over a year and a half ago and she's still a good 10 lbs away from her pre-baby weight. (And an additional 26 from her wedding weight.)
