New Weight Loss Plan

This past weekend I discovered a new weight loss plan and thought I should pass it on to you. You must follow my directions exactly or it may not work for you. First, go to Red Robin and order a turkey burger for dinner. Once you get the burger take notice that the inside of the burger looks peachy colored meaning it is not cooked fully. Then tell yourself you are just being paranoid since you don’t really like eating meat anyway and tend to be overly picky with it. So just eat the thing. Phase one done.
Next, wake up the next morning and just shrug off those weird stomach feelings as hunger and eat some cereal. Take kids to the local festival where it is 102 degrees and sweat your a** off. Notice the stomach gurgling, headaches, and lack of appetite but just ignore them once more. Finally head home and spend the next several hours on the toilet completely cleaning out your insides. Very important step here. Try to lay down between baby feedings and take notice that you are absolutely freezing even though the thermostat says your room is 80 degrees and you are covered in blankets. Finally put two and two together and take your temperature. Mine spiked at 102, it was just a coincidence that this was the outside temperature that day. Your temp could vary slightly. Take hot bath to sweat a little then lay down again. Phase two complete.
Finally, ask hubby to take kids and lay down for the night. Notice that now you are feeling clamy, no longer freezing, and will constantly wake up in cold sweats. Wake up next morning still feeling queazy in the stomach but overall much better. Your temperature should now be back to normal. Next you need a good shower to make you feel better. Oh, and don’t forget to accidently shit in the shower. This was my favorite part. Phase three complete.
Finally, get kids ready and head downtown for lunch at Cheesecake Factory. Your food will probably have no taste at this point which is a shame because their food is so good. You will only be able to stomach a few bites anyway. Head over to the theatre for the live showing of Dora the Explorer’s Pirate Adventure. Note, you may have some nervousness about crapping your pants during the show, but this did not happen to me, luckily. Phase Four, the final step, is now complete.
I know many of you are thinking this all sounds good except Phase Four. You may think about skipping this phase. But how could you? This was Syd’s first show ever. And it was her idol, Dora and all her friends. We even had VIP tickets. About 4 rows from the stage. It was a little nerve racking but very worth it. Her little face just lit up when Dora came on stage. “Oh, Oh, Oh, It’s Doh.” Too precious to miss.
Oh and I forgot. Wake up next morning for workout with personal trainer. This one consisting of trade offs between weights and kickboxing. Sure to give you a slight headache and plently of heavy breathing. But you should feel pretty much back to normal by day three. This plan results in a pretty miserable weekend for you. But I gaurantee you will lose a couple of pounds. Worth it to you?

    How you could have a sense of humor with food poisoning is amazing. Red Robin has just been scratched off our list. Hope you’re feeling better!

    What a lovely story! I’d say probably your best post ever in my book. I was laughing out loud. Not at you, WITH you, you see, when you have IBS like me, this process occurs at least once per week…sometimes several times per week during period week for some reason. Well, I don’t get the clammy/fever feelings and I don’t typically shit in the shower…but I’ve come close…

    1. I am a Kim Fuller as well
    2. I also got a lovely case of food poisoning/stomach virus that hit it’s peak on the 12th on July. So this is a bit odd, I wonder how many other Kim Fullers got sick last week.

    You even beat your Mom and Stepfather on this one — neither of us have “s—” in the shower. Was the baby sick too from breast milk? There’s nothing worse than non-cooked poultry — that’s saminila poisoning I believe (forgive the spelling). Glad to see you all venturing out and having fun. Keeps the girls in a happy, excited mood – and of course good for that “Knox Shopping Training”. Love you, honey — Kisses — MOM

    Any get food poisoning from the Woodinville Red Robin on 11/16-17/08? I sure did.
    Kim’s spot on with weight loss, but my story took a turn for the hospital and an overnight stay. The dry heaves were so bad, I bruised my heart (my story, docs wouldn’t commit, but said I’m probably right).
