How To Get Skinny In The City

Step One:  Buy a three story house in the city.

Step Two: Make sure the house is very old so that the floors slope and you are constantly walking uphill. 

Step Three:  Make sure the master bedroom is on the top floor, therefore you have to walk down 2 flights and up 2 flights of stairs every time you want something like a glass of water from the kitchen.

Step Four:  Go about your daily life knowing that steps 2 & 3 will be a constant in your day and that the inches are going to melt off.  Because let's face it, the idea of walking downstairs every time you want a muffin is a good deterrent.

  3. Stephanie, it is very European! I remember reading in one of Mireille's books about when she was younger and lived in a place where she walked up and down stairs all day!

    Belette, it's killer on your legs! I told G I won't ever have to do the stairmaster at the gym anymore!
