Walking Pneumonia: The NEW South Beach Diet

Those of us who are healthy as horses must be resigned to the fact that any weightloss program is going to be hard won and will require us to actually do something instead of just sitting around and withering away. Take yours truly, for instance. Many of you know that I've been trying to keep up my 3 days per week running routine. I've done that for the past three weeks, but it's so hard to get out and do it, especially when it's raining and the sun goes down like at 3:30 in the afternoon.

But, take a look at Man from U.N.C.L.E. Did you know that he lost 12 pounds in a matter of a few weeks? All without lifting a finger. He calls it "walking pneumonia." We should all be so lucky. According to a lung specialist at the Mayo Clinic, walking pneumonia isn't severe enough to require bed rest or hospitalization. I really don't see how this is an illness. Seems like a rather extravagant diet plan. Anywhoo, if you're out there, Man from U.N.C.L.E., down another Mycoplasma pneumoniae for me!

I think I had "Stampeding Pneumonia" 'cuz it literally kicked my ass. I had all the symptoms of Regular Pneumonia including the nausea, headache, fever, shakes, bodyache and shortness of breath. I could have bottled my phlegm and made a case of Aquaphlegma. I think my immuno-deficiency had a lot to do with how severe it has been. The weakness continues. Not a diet plan that I would recommend.

I'm imagining the scene in Liar, Liar where Jim Carrey's character is kicking his own ass to get a continuation on his hearing.
