When I stepped on the scale yesterday, I was surprised to see that despite my winter of poor eating and little physical exercise, I had actually lost weight, down five pounds to 225. It's probably just muscle weight sadly, although K. says my sides are slimmer. Maybe my body responds better to a high meat diet than I give it credit for as long as I eat plenty of veggies as well. Perhaps I'll concentrate my dieting energy on reducing my sugar intake instead, a huge task as I've gotten quite addicted this winter. I kind of like viewing myself as some sort of hack high school science experiment. Cycling in was so much easier today and it's already lifting me out of the winter doldrums.
