Day 16 - Scales are inconsequential... maybe

*trying to kill herself by paper-cutting her wrists*  Well, that doesn't work.  Just as an FYI.  I guess I'll just have to persevere.  *le sigh*

So, I tried the scale again this morning.  And it's the SAME as yesterday.  But I'm comforted by the knowledge that in order to have gained weight, I would have had to eat lots of extra calories. I know I didn't, so I'm trying not to freak out.  Trying!  On the good side, I measured myself again yesterday.  And in those few days, I lost 3 1/2 inches.  So yay me!

I was looking at possible reasons that the scale has become possessed.  (Other than it is Satan's scale.)  I'm hoping that it is water retention.  Seeing as how I am close to that time of month.  Was that TMI?  That was TMI wasn't it?  Sorry.  What??  Aren't you interested in my personal bodily functions?!  I don't see why not.  Heh.  My question is: how the he** did men get out of the whole monthly weight gain thing?? I mean, really.  What about our evolution caused men to get the easy way out??? Grrrrrrrr.

On the other hand, I went back to the dermatologist's office today.  I may not have mentioned this, but I'm now on a medication that has the potential to raise cholesterol and triglyceride levels.  And guess what?? It did.  It isn't outrageous, but my dermatologist said I needed to be on a lean protein, no complex carb diet.  Like, no milk, no red meat, no pasta, no potatoes, no....  everything.  That also means, no latte coffees.  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!  *falls to her knees*  Why hath thou forsaken me?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

*breathes deep*

Okay, I can do this.  But at least eating lots of fruits, veggies, and lean meats will be good for me!  Wish me luck!

Thanks guys! I'm ... ummmm.. okay without the carbs. Somewhat anyway. :) I'm eleven days in and well, still kicking anyway. I'm missing my carbs but I still have a little bit, just to keep me from going crazy and eating the entire bakery section of the supermarket. Heh heh
