I'm looking for people lacking motivation. People who no matter how little I do or try, they will always make me look good.
Team member plusses include:
Highly sporadic commenting.
Logging or not logging, doesn't really matter.
Have tried either the grapefruit, cabbage, or banana only diets.
Intrigued w/ wt loss diet ideas that do not relate to healthy eating but are more of a quick fix solution.
Have purchased at least 2 TV exercise gimmicks such as butt blasters, thigh masters, vibrating wts, electrode stimulation, or rubber bands.

Oh yes, and they must have a great sense of humour.

Please join me on the team. You will have to start the team yourself, as I am too lazy to start the team.

I think this might be the right team for me. But someone else will need to start it.

I would add:
Must enjoy TV machines that work your abs w/o sweat or ab soreness (something where you just rock or glide back and forth).
Must believe Chuck Norris actually developed his muscles on the machine he advertises.
Must have read at least one of Suzanne Sommers books.
Must believe the 3 month transformations on Body For Life are true.

I believe all the commercials for machines that spot reduce the tummy, thighs, and butt.
I take St Johns Wart for warts.
I believe that diets recommending eating only fatty foods are really healthy.
I only buy books with titles that have under 10min in the title (How to lose wt exercsing just 5 min per day).
I believe you have to eat in the zone and in certain combinations.

Can I join? I would start the team but I'm too exhausted from typing.

I'll join.
I think diet pills are the healthy way to lose wt. No need to eat right. No need to sweat. Another great way to lose fat is to use those old vibrating belt machines weher you just stand there and the belt jiggles your fat for you.
Saunas are good for lsoing wt to. Gets rid of that nasty water inyour body.

I wouldn't have the energy to click on a link to the team, even if someone else started it. Defintely makes me a good prospect.

wow, 9:11 really has the right attitude.
When I go to Famous Daves's for ribs, I always have a diet coke.
I googled and found that yawning burns 1 calorie per yawn. Therefore, I am now going to lay around and yawn alot.

10:01 - if you eat a lot before you lay around that might make you extra tired and produce more yawns! Even better - shake some of that special powder, Sensa, on your snacks and lose even more weight!

Wow, lots of great wt loss ideas here. I had never heard of Sensa (above post) but I saw the infomercial on it today. Looks like great stuff. Just sprinkle it on, eat whatever you want, and no mention of exercise. The only downside is that you have to expend all those calories shaking the Sensa bottle. That would be a lot of effort.

I do want to exercise a little. So I'm going to join the people who leisurely read a magazine while they sit in the recumbent bicycle and bearly pedal at my gym. I'm pretty sure they have never broke a sweat. Or I might join the people who get on the treadmill, set the incline way up, the lean against the front while they support their wt with their hands and arms leaning on the machine.

Maybe PT could start the team for us and automatically join each commentor to the team to save us the trouble.

I never expected folks to jump on this thread with so much glee! Especially when you consider the source. Just because someone has a little success with weight loss, they shouldn't get so self-righteous. Have some compassion for folks that are just starting out and that are new to this journey. We all started out somewhere.

I know this thread was started to be funny. Snarky. But really, ask yourself, is this the type of contribution you want to make to the community here?

What you do to others, you are really doing to yourself.

Sorry if I offended anyone, but I think we can all find something to laugh at ourselves about. I drank raw eggs for a couple weeks after the 1st Rocky movie and now think how dumb was that. We've all tried something silly and I think we can all laugh at ourselves about something silly we've done. The point was that fitness comes by hard work and healthy eating, not by quick fixes, silly gagets, and finding ways to minimize effort.

I laugh at myself all the time. It's good not to take things so personally and seriously all the time! :)

My favorite silly product was the blue tinted glasses that you would wear when eating so the food wouldn't look tasty. I also remember my dad wearing a rubber belt thing around the waste to make him sweat so he would lose his belly. Dumbest thing I ever did was purchasing umteen books on fitness and not following through on any of them. An even more expensive waste of money was all the times I joined a gym. Only because I always quit after about a month. My fault, not the gyms.
