Everyday I wake up I feel weaker and weaker. I don’t want to move, get up, even move my hands. Everything feels so heavy, I’m not sure if it’s that I’m getting physically weaker, mentally weaker or both.
This is how I lose weight. It’s not a good way to lose weight, but it works. Well, for me anyway.
-Only eat one full meal a day. (For me, that’s supper.)
-Have a light snack every once in a while.
-Eat a shit load of ice. (Yes, it will thin your blood, or so I’ve been told. I’m anemic and they told me that the ice thinning my blood is why I am. But, you’ve never heard of anyone getting fat from eating ice now have you.)

“Very hot, very hot! I was suffocating. When they transferred me here on Sunday, they rescued me from the dragon’s mouth.”, 77-year-old retired factory worker named Georgina Gonzales
