Montgomery locals

By Staff | Nov 17, 2009

Last week, I lost five pounds by following the latest diet. My appetite disappeared and the weight just melted away. No intense exercise workouts were required (although I did break into a sweat every time I got out of bed) and no calorie counting was involved (ice water and Tylenol were my preferred meal choices). No membership fees are required to join this exclusive H1N1 flu diet club but it will cost you at least 3 or 4 days at home in bed while being subjected to hours of mediocre television entertainment. I would highly recommend another method of weight control.
