Five Pounds of Flesh: Eat Your Heart Out, Shylock

I stepped on the scale this morning to find out that I have lost five pounds. Five pounds! Hooray! That's a little more than one pound each week, which is a healthy weightloss! Hooray! I'm healthy and skinny! Only thirty more to go...

(This is a disgusting picture, but I rejoice in it. He's holding what represents five pounds of human fat.)

Ew and congratulations. Also, I think I know where your pound a week went. Squirrel Baby says thank you.

Mandi said...

Limon said...

I am really impressed. I bet you feel even better than you look!

JB said...

Wow, you took off a chunk of yourself that was about that size/volume, huh? Congrasts! That's awesome!

Cicada said...

Yeah. I feel like I've donated an organ or something. Hooray!

Squirrel Baby! Grow! Grow! Though, Ruth, it's a little disturbing to think of me contributing to your child... When it's born, will you and Squirrel Boy tell everyone, "This baby belongs to us and Cicada"?

I would like to thank you and te french for your organ donation...
*sigh*
But I really didn't need an extra butt cheek, people....
Stupid French with their stupid croissants...
PS - Limon, does this mean I look worse than I feel?

My question is: where do find a lump of fat that size and shape? I saw a guy once who had a fat roll about that size on the back of his neck once, but I can't see them pulling that out of you...

Oh and just five more of those, and you will have lost an Olsen twin...

Good job! I really am so inspired by you!

But that picture is just plain stankin' nasty.

Congratulations!!! Someday you'll have to confide your secret to me. (Or at least it would be very nice of you if you did.)
