i sneakily weighed myself this morning. one whole day before official weigh-in. that's a significant show of the willpower i've had lately. actually, it read one pound down which really surprises me because this week i've been eating like carbs are the only food group. maybe those were slow acting cookies. or maybe i typed enough to burn all those empty calories. or maybe i should get a digital scale with bigger numbers. there is of course the slimmest* possibility that cutting out the daily can of coke and candy bar makes a difference. who knew?
