The Tortoise & the Diet Hare
A Diet Weight Loss Story

And Our Weight Loss Story Begins....
Once upon a time there lived a tortoise and a hare.
Both lived in the small animal kingdom of Crisco & Wesson. Both were very hip on fitness and very keen on getting in their daily exercise, as well as watching what they ate.
One day, Hare told Tortoise, "You are so slow when you exercise! Why, I can exercise circles around you! Why, I can do my exercises in one-tenth the time that you can. Why, I'm the best looking beast in the kingdom! Why, I am the fittest beast in the forest. Why -"
"Why don't you shut up," Tortoise slowly eased out. Sometimes, Hare raked him the wrong way. Why did Hare always have to act like he was better than everyone else in the kingdom? Just because he was quick, didn't mean he was best.
Yes, he was quick with his exercises - but Tortoise himself had more defined muscles.
One day a cute little Dalmatian named Dot moved to the kingdom. Every day she would sit and watch Hare and Tortoise exercise.
After watching for several weeks, she told them, "I have been watching both of you for a very long while. You look so healthy. You look so trim. I would like to lose a bit of weight myself. I would like to lose 6 pounds. If I lose 6 pounds, I would be at my recommended poochie weight. Would you be so kind as to help me do that?"
"Sure!" bolted out Hare. "I'll have all of your unwanted weight off in one week! You'll look like a champ. I'll take off the weight so fast that you won't know what hit ya!!"
"I will help you lose the weight, Dot, but it will take much longer than Hare promises," eased out Tortoise. "WE will do it slowly. You can expect to lose about 2 pounds a week."
"Get out of here, Tortoise!" bolted out Hare. "Dot wants to lose weight FAST. Your way is too slow." Hare turned on Dot and challenged, "You see the way that he exercises - SLOW. Do you want to lose your weight FAST or SLOW?" Continue to Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4
