But did I really lose 5? No, not very likely.
More likely, I didn't really weigh my original starting weight. Why? Ladies, you know the answer. Because that "special visitor" we have every month is a trickster. She is the evil doer of uneven weigh-ins. I must say, when I first stepped on the scale it did seem a bit higher than the usual high, but I thought, "Ok, I can deal with this."
Then, this past week, my real body was returned to me. I could tell by the way my clothes were fitting - a little on the looser-ish side. So now, for two weeks, I get to have my regular body back and then I'll probably gain 2 or 3 pounds, just because it's fun (!), when it's 'that time' again.
I have decided it's time to kick it up a notch (I hate quoting Emeril cause I can't stand the guy, but there it is). I may as well take advantage of the momentum.
Onward and downward!
