SoCS — Where There’s a Will…

29570B28-A896-4EFF-9D26-E16A2CA7F48F“No way,” Ellen said.

“Yes way,” Amanda said. “Just two years ago, Ellen, I weighed 300 pounds. Now look at me. I weigh 125.”

“That’s amazing. How did you do it?” Ellen asked.

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way, Ellen,” Amanda said. “I read an article about a nutritionist who had developed a diet he called the ‘Little Miss Muffet Diet.’ It basically consisted of eating nothing but curds and whey.”

“Curds and whey!” Ellen said. “What, pray tell, are curds and whey?”

“They are products of cheese-making,” Amanda explained. “When an enzyme, rennin, is added to milk, it causes the milk to curdle. These solid, curdled lumps are the curds. Whey is the liquid byproduct of the curdling process.”

“Ew, that sounds awful,” Ellen said. “There’s no way I could deal with that kind of diet. I’d rather be overweight than eat nothing but curdled milk and its liquid byproduct. That’s, like, totally gross.”

“Well, Ellen, it turned out that the Little Miss Muffet Diet,” Amanda admitted, “gave me terrible, stinky gas and horribly bad breath, and the nutritionist was a quack and a scam artist, so I gave up that diet after two weeks.”

“So how, then, did you actually lose all that weight?” Ellen asked.

“Truth be told,” Amanda said, “I had laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery.”

“No way,” Ellen said.

“Yes way,” Amanda said.


Written for today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill. Our challenge is to write a post using the words “weigh,” “way,” and “whey.”
