Along the way I have been asked some really goofy questions. Goofy meaning some are just silly, some are just asked in poor context they almost make no sense, and some are a blending of obvious and obnoxious. I thought you may enjoy pondering them just as I have. You may even choose to answer them, I can't say I always dignified each one with an answer when I was asked; but since I am tossing these out to all of you I shall at least comment on each if not answer just for you.
Q: How fast can you lose weight?
A: Um, honestly, instantly if need be; a quarter-pound drop is usually a trip to the bathroom away.
Q: How do you lose weight after pregnancy?
A: I have lost weight, not given birth; the difference should be fairly easy to see on a male I think.
Q: How are you going to lose your final 10 pounds?
A: A legitimate question, but I was asked after I made it known I have another 60 pounds I want to lose. I am just focused on the next 2 pounds, the next 10 at most has my attention. Those last 10 pounds, I don't know; Ex-lax muffins and coffee maybe?
Q: What would you estimate your current weight to be?
A: OK, seriously, I do work with allot of very smart people; so I can't explain how this actually rolled off someones lips. I replied, "The same as I did tomorrow".
Q: How can you look thinner faster than you actually lose weight?
A: Oh lord, that's an easy one. But we all have to learn it from the master himself, Thornton Melon. If you don't know what I mean, rent Back To School, watch and you will be enlightened.
Q: Can you share some weight loss success stories?
A: Well, if you don't like my story currently in progress, sure. Go to http://responsibility199.blogspot.com/ and scan my blog roll.
I answered this question with that answer twice. Just last week the last person to ask was too impatient to do as suggested and asked for links to some of the better ones. Being the nice guy that I am, I shared these five. I don't like to pick favorites, I don't mean to because I am grateful for each and everyone of you I interact with. But in trying to help with this slightly goofy request I chose these five. They are currently in various stages of their own journeys to shed obesity once and for all and they intensely grab my attention...
Have you been asked any really goofy questions?
