    -Have you lost weight, with your paleo thing?
    -Scale hasn't moved yet but (being interrupted here)
    -I knew it! (end of conversation)
    Scale not moving could not possibly be due to the fact that I'm doing crossfit twice a week and that I'm adding about 5-10 pounds per week to my weightlifting? That I used to be unable to do a single chin-up, even with rubber bands but that I now can?
    Continue eating your white bread and beans and not do exercise. We'll see who outlasts who, in the end.

    Co-worker who has borrowed my copy of ISWF, but hasn't read it: "I've given up on trying to lose weight. I would have to live off of lettuce."
    Me: "No you wouldn't, have you read ANY of that book? I eat steak & eggs and good food."
    Overweight/Sedentary Co-worker who lives off of donuts & cookies: "Yeah, but that's the Atkins diet. I did Atkins for YEARS..."

    Not quite the same but it cracked me up today. I went to lunch with a coworker/good friend. I brought mine, she was picking up hers.
    She said to me, "you know, your like a drinking buddy who's on the wagon now!" I couldn't help but laugh when I noticed she didn't order the cheeseburger and onion rings she usually gets!
