Wink One Pound

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

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.
