I hate weighing myself. For one thing, it serves as a harsh reality check. My mental image of my body is never in synch with my actual body image, and getting on a scale is akin to being slapped in the face by reality. You know how people say they don't feel old, even if they are? The same is true for me when I say I don't feel fat, even though I am.

Well, I'm on Day 5 of the NutriSystem diet, and the scales say I've already lost six pounds. Six pounds??? I don't even remotely see how this is possible. People just do not lose that much weight that quickly unless they're taking diuretics or running five miles a day. And since I'm doing neither of those things, I'm at a loss to explain the weight loss. I imagine it's got something to do with excess fluids on the morning I initially weighed myself — though I'm following the diet's rule of drinking at least 64 oz. of fluids each day (that's a lot of water), so today's figure should be just as inflated. Oh, well.

I guess I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, right?

Time for some coffee with Another Hot Guy.
