Sure fire way to lose weight

NEW AND IMPROVED!! Lose weight now the old-fashioned way. With FoodPoisoning! Yes, you too can lose 2.5 percent body weight in just three short days by eating a corned beef reuben at Sh_ke_s Deli on Edgewater. Just listen to what Thin Trader had to say:
  • "I couldn't eat. I couldn't open my eyes to even watch food on TV. There's no TV in the bathroom anyway. I gave up beer and everything. It was horrible. But, hey; I lost four pounds!"

So the next time a 15-miler doesn't take it off for you just stop by Sh_ke_s for a dose of what's not good for you.

Ta ta. I am off to the nation's capitol today to find Jeanne on the Mall tonight for the fireworks show. I'm sure we'll meet up. Then again, maybe later in the weekend she'll finally check her answering machine and call me back and we might run.

Update 3:30 p.m. I woke Jeanne up from a nap and she's taking me to a DC street party behind Capitol Hill tonight and then to the Mall for fireworks; and DC Spinster Peter called and we're booked for a run Sunday morning. This is working out great. I have a Nationals game in mind for Tuesday night too. Anybody want to go?

Oh no!! The Ick!! Great for weight loss, bad for running! Glad you are feeling better and in the coolest place to celebrate our nation's independence!

Fireworks on the Mall sounds perfect.

Great testimonial. I'll be sure to visit Sh_ke_s, next time in the area.

You shouldda had the turkey reuben instead of the corned beef one, it's better for you. I'm looking forward to doing 12 or so on Sunday morning on the Mall! Lots to see, starting off with Lincoln, Korea, WWI, WW2, Washington, the Castle and the Carousel, Grant, Garfield, the Gardens, the Capitol, the Hill, and we're only halfway to RFK, our turnaround point. There's lots more stuff to run by on the other side too.

I've done that diet! It works so well. Mine was corned beef from Dennys. It gave me E. Coli. I've never been so sick. Or so thin.

Jeanne, I want a full report.

Eesh - food poisoning is the worst. I've had it too - from spaghetti I made myself! :-( Hope you had a great time running with Peter in D.C. earlier today - I've run that same route with him back in the day.

I have a sure-fire way of losing weight. Don't eat anything for a few days! ;-) Hope you had a blast in DC with the fireworks.

Maddy said...

I've been to that place. Sheesh, a $10 sandwich and food poisoning too? What a deal...

I looked for you at the Watermelon 5K - No wonder I didn't see you there... Have fun in DC.

Man, I gotta get me some of that...

Hope you're feeling better.
