What is my easy loss?

I read a lot of fitness magazines, articles, blogs, etc. You can learn a lot of good things, and also some crazy things.  One thing that I always come across when glancing through is this:

"If you don't eat/drink ______, then you could lose ____ pounds in a year."

Yesterday, I was reading Women's Health magazine...

And I came across this statistic - "People who live in a city with public transportation lose an average of 6.5 lbs in 12-18 months."

Well, when I moved to SF, I definitely did not lose 6.5 pounds.  And, I never got to lose 10 pounds in a year after stopping drinking soda because I don't drink soda.  I feel like I always read statistics like these - and I always think to myself "what do I get to stop eating/drinking to lose X amount of pounds?!?!" 

I guess the positive way to look at it is...if I did drink or eat those things, I guess I could be X pounds heavier, right?!

Here we go...

Alright. I am going to try something new. Quick, short posts to see if I can be more "regular" at this whole blogging thing. I mean, if I spent 1/4 of the time writing on my own blog then I did reading other peoples' blog, well, we wouldn't have the shortage of posts that we do. Anyways...

Here is the highlight of my day today:

I am walking back to work after being out at a few meetings. As I am walking down the street, an older man - who looks pretty normal and harmless - is walking towards me carrying a few large shopping bags. I try to move out of his way and he comes up to me. Here is the conversation that ensues:

Man: "Has anyone one told you?"
KK: "Told me what?"
Man: "That you are a gorgeous young lady?"
KK: Laugh politely..."thank you"

At this point, I think the man is nice and I am about to head off on my way. I mean, I will take a compliment any day of the week!

Man: "No, seriously, you are very pretty."
KK: "Thank you (polite smile)"
Man: "You look very nice and make sure you don't end up like those seals and whales that I see around."

Well, now I can't stop laughing, but this guy is being totally serious. He repeats himself, I say "OK" and walk to my office.  And well, I think that conversation says enough. Until tomorrow :)
