Exercise, diet, get into shape,
Stay physically fit, check your heart rate.
Watch what ya eat and your caloric intake,
No drinking or smoking, monitor your weight.

Running a mile, burns a hundred calories,
Burn 3500, and you'll lose one pound with ease,
Now if you weigh about one hundred and fifty pounds,
And ran fifty two hundred and fifty miles,
You'd just disappear, and never be found!

Might as well just disappear -
All those miles away from here
There'd be no Toerag in my life,
Merely bunions, toil, and strife.
And though I might at last be fit
I wouldn't like that fate one bit!

On the other hand... I'd be perfectly willing to walk up to Yankee country for a visit! LOL. Great job, Toe!!!

No need to run that far...you're already miles ahead!

LOL Toe! If I ran that far I wouldn't have to worry about losing weight. I'd be dead! LOL

“Doctor, doctor,” said the man
“I need to lose weight, all that I can!”
"Then run, and run, and run some more”
Said the Doc, showing him out the door.

So the man, he ran and ran, and ran,
finally ending up in Rome
Soon Doc got a phone call from the man
Who asked “when can I return to my home?”

Toe: Come on, be serious...LOL

If I watched what I ate
no toad in the hole could I make
so I'll keep my ounces and my pounds
else I'll whiz round the room with peculiar sounds ...

ooops

Yep. Toerag's running from the heat.
Losing weight? Nope. Getting beat
Like a drum when his pen runs on,
And villifies poor old Long John.

So watch yourself, you scalawag,
Or there'll be lint 'stead of rag.
I'm coming back from my abstention,
And you'll be getting my attention.

hey there, Toe - how ya doing?

Doc said "Run to loose
Calories from the booze."
So Toe's on the run
To slim down some
Into the Hooters bar
Which ain't all that far
But the pounds keep comin'
'Cause its backwards he's runnin'
For a mug full of beer
And a ride from Sir Balladeer

Doctor told me how to do it
diet one day and skip the next
so I did it for one month
you should see my abs and pecs

Doctor was amazed you see
at my weight loss he was flippin'
must have been those salads, said he
Heck NO it was all that skippin'!
