A: "Can you believe her? She is not even a hundred pounds and she is going off on how she wants to go on a diet."
B: "Tell me about it. If I was as small as her, I wouldn't think about going on a diet."
A: "Me too. But what are we going to do? I have been on 4 different diets and I can't seem to lose weight."
B: "That's because you don't exercise. If you were more active, you wouldn't have a dieting problem."
A: "What do you know? You are over weight too."
B: "I'm not on a diet though."
A: "I know. But I don't have someone to diet with. If we help each other and motivate each other, then I think we can lose some weight."
B: "I like ice cream too much though."
A: "C'mon. You'll feel better and look better and as a reward you can eat a little bit of ice cream here and there."
B: "It does sound appealing."
A: "It's a great idea. I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier. Going on a diet with a friend to back you up is a great way to succeed."
B: "Okay. I'm in. Let's do it."
A: "Great. I'll get our plan started right away."
B: "Can we start tomorrow though?"
