It's not based on science!

3,500 calories = lb, so reduce intake by 500 cal a day -- blah-ah!
Exercise at least 60 minutes a day to lose lbs. -- #@!&%

Don't believe a word of it! Gain or loss, it's all accomplished by mischievous little elves! They liked me yesterday morning; I was down 2 lbs., looking forward to my weigh-in report today. After all, I'd earned my fabulous 2-lb loss report. All week I busted out close to 2 hours a day of exercise--and ate within my range. So last night after helping a friend with her 6-hr catering job, preparing food, serving each table in a large church dining hall, busing the tables afterward, I finally ate a piece of chicken, a roll, some punch and a brownie!

The elves said, "Ah-ha! We've got her!" And I'm up a lb. today for my weigh-in.

Not complaining ...I'm just saying... I wish those elves would just go on back up to the north pole where they're needed.

    BOLO Alert:

    Be On the Look Out for demonic elves wrecking havoc on scales around the world of those who are trying to live healthy. It is rumored they were being aided and abetted by the sock monsters.
    (If you catch one, let us know... many victims willing to retaliate.)

    I know what you mean.
    Remember that our weight fluctuates even in a day.
    Tell those little evil elves to back off and pop your collar!

    My weight was 2 lbs less on Wednesday and 1 lb less yesterday than it was today!
    Yesterday evening...I ate Pizza Hut pizza and a dunker. Woke up at 2am, peed, drank water, got up at 4am checked weight and it was up!
    The elves have been visiting here too ;p
