The Wondrous New Diet

I have everyone's solution to weight loss...

Start with extreme stress and then add two ten to twelve hour days spent somewhere with no running water (and therefore no toilet). This will seriously cut down on food and beverage consumption.

When I climbed on the scale this morning (something I rarely do, not being all that interested in the results), I saw a number that I have not seen since high school. A number that is about 7 pounds lighter than when I last weighed myself and 13 pounds lighter than a number that I used to see regularly.

Interesting, yes, but we need to consider the fact that exercise has been entirely eliminated from my life for the last several months because of the house situation.

Plus, this fabulous new diet may also leave you open to illness, as I now feel great amounts of snot pressing at my sinuses. Take that into consideration before rushing out and trying it yourself.

And here I was constantly accusing you of getting skinny jeans!

I think perhaps the two twelve hour days could lead to sinus issues, wondrous diet or no, considering the specifics of the locale and all.

Hope the sinues clear up and you stay healthily slender.

Well, the meal we ate from MickeyDee's at 10:30 last night won't help with the staying slender. LOL.

And now my chest hurts.
