The other day, I met Mike, one of our bariatric surgeons, in the doctor's lounge. I hadn't seen him in awhile and was impressed by the trim new physique he sported.
"Mike," I called out. "You look like you've lost a lot of weight."
"I have." he replied. "Close to thirty pounds."
"That's great. How did you do it?" I nosily inquired.
"Oh, just diet and exercise. The usual." he answered.
"Did you use any kind of special diet or supplements?"
"No. I just at less and exercised more. It's the best way to lose weight."
"You mean besides the surgery you perform on your patients?"
Mike quickly put his finger up to his lips, "Yeah, but don't tell my patients that, okay?"
Alright Mike, I won't tell any of your patients about your fabulous weight loss technique. It'll just be a secret between you and me. Wink, wink.
