On the one hand, it is a number to make me SCREAM !!!! It is up 5.4 lbs from Saturday, a number that was up 4.8 lbs from the week before. One factor is when my body moves into the ovulatory phase of my cycle, it hangs there and builds multiple fluid filled cysts, which pack on the pounds in ways that look like a campaign of shock and horror( in past years I would often gain 20 lbs at this point, and lose it all when the dreaded Aunt came to town). Add a couple of slices of pizza, and you get a number like that. While I want to scream ( and pick a fight about an important issue with my husband on a great burning issue like which ocean is greater, who invented the lawn and so forth) it is the point at which I start and nothing more. Okay Dr Joel. Let's do this ! Lets bring it on...and you had better be right or those Bunny Cheerleaders from the Puppy Bowl are gonna hear about it !
