You can most likely relate your weight loss journey to one of these hilarious stories.
1. No More Meat!
The teacher in our Bible class asked a woman to read from the Book of Numbers about the Israelites wandering in the desert.
“The Lord heard you when you wailed, ‘If only we had meat to eat!’ ” she began.
“Now the Lord will give you meat. You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, or ten or twenty days, but for a month – until you loathe it.”
When the woman finished, she paused, looked up and said, “Hey, isn’t that the Atkins diet?”
2. Weight Loss Buddies
My friend Kimberly announced that she had started a diet to lose some pounds she had put on recently.
“Good!” I exclaimed. “I’m ready to start a diet too. We can be dieting buddies and help each other out. When I feel the urge to drive out and get a burger and fries, I’ll call you first.”
“Great!” she replied. “I’ll ride with you.”
3. Bland Diet Food
My sisters and I have weight problems and are always sharing diet tips.
One day my oldest sister was showing us a low-fat cookbook and pointed out a chicken dish she had tried the night before.
Reading the ingredients, I commented, “It looks like it would taste really bland.”
“It did,” she replied, “until I added cheese and sour cream.”
