Crazy Things We'll Do To Lose Weight

Deb’s post from yesterday got me thinking: what crazy things will we do to lose weight?

· Buy frozen dinner entrees that taste like cardboard
· Eat soup for an entire weekend
· Give up a specific food or food group such as carbs, sugar, alcohol, or chocolate (heaven forbid!)
  • Skip meals
  • Refuse to eat after 5 p.m.

Okay, so we’ve all heard of those plans. We’ve even tried some of them. But I’ve got some new ones for you.

First, for those of us spending too much time on the computer, there is the treadmill desk! We can walk five miles a day while reading, writing, and surfing the Web.

Next, we can all buy the new Sketchers Shape-Ups.

Lastly, strap on an Ab belt and let electrical pulses force your muscles to contract (I will now confess to you that I bought one of these after seeing an infomercial. That’s all I’m going to say about that!)

Your turn! What’s the nuttiest thing you ever did to lose a few pounds?
