100 lb. Club - One Pound of Fat

View Full Version : One Pound of Fat

02-04-2013, 07:43 PM
Hello! Do you know me? If you don't, then you should. I am a pound of fat. And I'm the happiest pound of fat you would ever want to meet.

Want to know why? It's because no one ever wants to lose me. I'm only one pound! Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one. So, I just stick around and happily keep you fat. Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice me. That is, until I've grown up to ten, twenty, or even more pounds in weight. Yes, it is fun being only one pound of fat, left to do as I please. So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying "Oh, I only lost one" (as if that were such a terrible thing!).

For you see, if you do this, you will encourage others to keep me around because they will think I'm not worth losing. And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips, and every part of you.

HAPPY DAYS!!! After all, I'm only one little pound.

Eeek! Those fat glob things creep me out. My doctor has two by the scale. The bigger one freaks me out worse...now I've been photo bombed!

I recognize those fat pictures. One resides on my left hip and the other on my right!

I think the pound of fat would make a good "eat right" talisman!

WOW. I've seen those pics comparing 1 lb of muscle to a lb of fat but I don't know if I've ever seen them to scale like that. Thanks for those!

And OP, that made me laugh, love it!
