“If stress burned calories, I’d be a supermodel”

"If stress burned calories, I’d be a supermodel” is a jocular one-line saying about stress that has been printed on many images. “If stress burned calories, I’d be a size 5!!” was posted on the newsgroup rec.crafts.textiles.needlework on April 25, 1995.

“If stress burned calories, I’d be a supermodel” has been cited in print since at least 2008.

It wasn’t such a local event for Carla and Harold Sabin of Carla’s Crafts, who traveled up from Fort Myers to participate. Their booth featured fun items carved in wood by Harold and painted with wise and humorous messages by Carla. “If stress burned calories, I’d be a size five,” read one of their plaques.
