I have lost 10 pounds since yesterday. Seriously.
Working out works. Except, looking at your scale and seeing exactly where it is set works better than working out. I realized this morning that my scale is set on the 10 pound mark to begin with.(it's a really old scale) So I have been really distressed about having gained 30 pounds in the last year. When really, I have only gained 20.
Usually gaining 20 pounds would not be a reason to celebrate. But when you thought you gained 30 and it is only 20, you are pretty excited. Believe me.
