Laredo’s Biggest Biggest

This past week, the Huffington Post reported on a new fad for weight loss – the “hCG Diet.” This diet has people eating less than 500 calories a day with injections of a hormone. Uh, no thanks, not for me. You can keep your needles and I’ll keep my very unsexy curves.

Laredo might be offering something a little different though – an actual challenge!

Big ups to the hospital, the bank, the nuns, UTCO & parks – I’ll be calling for the registration form.

Some of you know, after a little battle with my health and dealing with immobility, I gained a whopping… (I don’t want to admit it but it’s almost the weight of a 10 year old child – a fat one!)… lbs. My competitive nature is saying “do it, do it, do it” so maybe I will :). Wanna join me?

If I don’t weigh in on April 1st, then maybe you will find me in El Cenizo on April 2nd having some pollo skin and chelas.


In this area, there are always temptations but los bomberos ‘tan rete fregados. They also need our support.

    ___it needs to be judged on a percentage of weight loss, not actual pounds ( a slender 200 pounder cannot lose as much as a bigger 400 pounder)

    ___qualifying rules need to be published prior to the beginning . . .

    • Que Fregados says:

      Qualifying rules and details are available from them – this is just the info flyer, not the application and fine print. Advertisement works when you get someone’s attention, not when you print every detail ahead of time.

      Why didn’t you ask where the Chicken & Beer event was going to be? It’s the same thing. These are flyers to generate interest, in the same way that this blog gives you tidbits but the links to follow if you want more info.
