Why won’t you evaporate?
Like my chant? Can’t you just see girls skipping rope on the playground chanting it?
I’m up 3 pounds this week, but I am not deterred. My body likes to mess with me like this. On the positive side, I’m still lower than I was 2 weeks ago. Strangely enough, my body fat dipped into the 46 percentile this week for the first time. I’d been in the 47’s for the last month.
Sometimes I wish I could weigh myself in one of those big water tanks each week that precisely measures your body fat. But that seems like an awful lot of trouble. Where would I store a human-size aquarium in my house anyway? It would be an interesting conversation piece though. “Why do you have this huge glass tank filled with water?” people would ask. And I’d say “Oh, that’s where I precisely measure my body fat each week.” Then they’d give me a really weird look, like I’d just said I collect all my toenail clippings in glass jars in the basement. But then they’d want to go weigh themselves in it and I’m sure it would just be a big hassle. So thank goodness I don’t do that.
