No soup (or sandwich) for you!
Remember Seinfeld's Soup Nazi? Well, looks like the state of Mississippi is considering a Food Gestapo.
Lawmakers have proposed legislation that forbids restaurants and food establishments from serving food to anyone who is obese (as defined by the State). Under this bill, food establishments are to be monitored for compliance under the State Department of Health and violators will have their business permits revoked.
House Bill 282, if passed, will be effective this July. Just letting you know in case you're planning a road trip for BBQ or chicken-fried steak.
For 2006 Mississippi has once again claimed the title of fattest state, while Colorado repeats as the leanest. Louisiana remains at number four, but its three-year obesity average climbed more than any other state, by 1.8%, with a one-year 2005 obesity percentage just barely below Mississippi’s.
Nevada’s three-year obesity average was the only one to drop against last year’s numbers, by 0.1%. All other states’ three-year averages rose.
According to the single-year 2005 survey figures, Mississippi becomes the only state with more than two-thirds of its population (67.3%) either overweight or obese.
At this rate, restaurant staffers themselves must have weight issues. So would they be allowed to eat where they work? Would one fat person have to tell another fat person that they're too fat to be served? Would there be a restaurant still in business?
But this is not the craziest thing I've read today about weight loss. Nope. Because here comes the deepest darkest slimming secret of the celebs!
As every dieter knows, a moment on the lips could spell a lifetime on the hips.
But now the adage has been turned on its head, with the creation of a lip gloss that claims to help women lose weight.
Sold under the slogan "Always on the lips. Never on the hips", Fuze Slenderize gloss is said to be oozing with ingredients that curb the appetite.
If you have to have it, I suppose it's available online.
But if you ask me, the only way to lick a weight problem is by eating less and moving more.

As for my progress, what can I say? On Saturday I was down 8 pounds but then came two days of birthday partying.
I'll weigh myself tomorrow.
