My Story:

Dr. Diet studied his research over and over again.
He just couldn't figure out where he had gone wrong but
obviously you could be too thin.

At 1, 2, 3...ELEVEN Petals I found the Day Zero project. The idea is to create a list of 101 things you will complete in 1001 days. I only have 13 things on my list so far. One of which is to complete the BBC Book challenge in the allotted time. You can see the book list and what I've already read at Nessa's Reading Room.


Write a story in 140 characters using the picture she provides as inspiration.

  3. very well done...yes...you can be too thin. I was there, back in college, when I live solely on coffee and cigarettes (and beer on weekends). I think I was what, about 93 lbs? That sounds about right. Never want to go there again. Dark times.

  20. Dr. Diet, don't despair. If you keep smiling, thin is easy to wear!

    Great one. I know a doctor who thinks the answer to everything is to lose ten pounds. So this made me laugh.
