Five days ago, I was concerned because my weight had crept up 5 pounds over my freakout limit of 118. (My weight had been over 118 for 14 days total while I experimented with a slightly larger body.)
The next day, it was up 4 pounds more (sushi rolls, barbecued spare ribs). Sadly for me, that was a day I saw BFD. That day, I was physically uncomfortable. My skirt felt tight. Walking around with him, I did not look like myself. I did not post a picture of myself from the sushi dinner the night before (it was a birthday party). I looked big. BFD, who is a bit obsessed with my obsession with my weight, was not discouraging when I told him I was on a diet.
I had already started my diet that day, and by the next morning. I was down 4.4 pounds.
So, now, in three days, I have lost 7.8 pounds. It was not much real weight. It was mostly water retention from sodium and from having my period, but it is a couple of real pounds. I had been over 118 for a couple of weeks.
I look like me again, back at 118. I intend to lose 3 or 4 more pounds over the next couple of weeks.
After my little experiment, I accept that 115 is my preferred weight with a float between 113 and 118.
