The Weight Loss Program


After gaining nearly 30 pounds over the last dozen years, I’ve been working on losing weight. So far I’ve lost nearly five pounds in about a two-week period.

A friend of mine, who knows how I’ve been struggling sent me a joke as a way of encouragement. Allow me to share it:

A guy calls a company and orders their five-day/five-pound weight loss program.

The next day, there’s a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19-year-old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company.

The sign reads, “If you can catch me, you can have me.”

Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later puffing and puffing, he finally gives up.

The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost five pounds as promised.

He calls the company and orders their five-day/10-pound program. The next day there’s a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life.

She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, “If you catch me, you can have me”.

Well, he’s out the door and after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and he does his best, but no such luck.

So for the next four days, the same routine happens with him gradually getting in better and better shape. Much to his delight on the fifth day when he weighs himself, he discovers that he has lost another 10 pounds as promised.

He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the seven-day/25-pound program.

“Are you sure?” asks the representative on the phone. “This is our most rigorous program.”

“Absolutely,” he replies, “I haven’t felt this good in years.”

The next day there’s a knock at the door; and when he opens it he finds a huge muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, “If I catch you, you are mine.”

He lost 33 pounds that week.
