When I'm in the locker room at the gym, I overhear conversations. I'm not trying to, mind you. It just happens. The room isn't that big and if women are talking loud enough to hear, try as I might not to hear them, I hear them.
Today's conversation was comical. Two women that I don't know come in talking about their workouts this morning. The one tells the other one that if she is bored during her workout, she doesn't burn any calories. Huh? I don't care if you are bored or not, if you are moving, you are burning calories.
The conversation continued to get more bizarre. Women #1 told woman #2 that she was going to weigh herself to see if she lost any weight since she weighed herself earlier that morning. She weighed and proceeded to tell her that she went from 186 pounds to 181 pounds just since this morning.
That's great, but why? woman #2 asked.
Because I pooped after I weighed myself this morning, woman #1 replied.
Really? woman #2.
What?! (me, thinking to myself)
Yeah, my nutritionist told me that you can lose up to 10 pounds just by pooping, said woman #1.
Seriously?! (me again ... thinking to myself)
Especially if you've eaten a lot of meat and stuff, woman #1 said.
Now, I'm not a nutritionist, but common sense tells me that if you have a BM every day, which you should by the way, you're not going to have 10 pounds of fecal matter in your body.
That seriously grossed me out!
Then on the way out she was showing the flabby part of her upper arm to her friend. Apparently she has lost 140 pounds (good for her!!!) and she has all this extra skin to deal with.
While I'm glad she's lost so much weight, she really needs to not wear tank tops with those flabby arms lest she put out an eye.
I'm just sayin'.
