Day 22-----Weigh-In

Tra la, tra la, I lost a pound! My grand total is THREE AND A HALF POUNDS! Now in some ways that doesn't seem like much for all this time. But I felt much thinner today. I wore a pair of jeans that I couldn't get into a few weeks ago.


Oh yeah right. HAHAHAHAHA. These are so-called Brazil fashion jeans--can you even imagine? Also the belly button jangly heart is not my first choice. If I wore that, first of all, it would be obscured by roll of fat; second, it would immediately catch on protruding screw or nail or some other errant hardware and rip me a new navel (a bit of a variation on what is normally ripped new)

The point is, though, I felt thinner today for the first time. It goes to show that, as my mother always said, it's always darkest before the dawn, yesterday being very dark.
Also I had real food today. I baked chicken breasts and ate a whole one.
Beer Butt Chicken
May I say from my heart YYYYYYYYYYYUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMM! I needed that! . Check out this article from the NYT about reduced-calorie scientific experiment--I think I should be in it!
