The Good - We went to a party at some friends' house on Saturday evening and I wore a pair of my formerly too tight pants. Except now they are not too tight! That was a sign that I've made progress and was very gratifying.
The Bad - I've had a cold for 17 days. It is much better now than it was a week ago but I still cough like a person near death after any exercise. So I haven't been to the gym in all that time. I'm fearful the pounds are piling on but I can't tell because...
More Bad - our digital scale seems to be broken. When I get on it (or anyone else gets on it for that matter), the numbers flash seemingly at random, then after a long time it finally settles on a number, again at random, and readouts are not consistent between one weighing and the next a few minutes later. Much as I would like to weigh 116 pounds, I'm not fooled into believing I really do! So, I will be shopping for a new scale. In the meantime, I'll repeat the last set of stats.
