After a full year of mysteriously dropping weight, my body seems to be up to its old tricks. I've gained five pounds, and it happened really suddenly about a month ago, and I've been unable to shake it despite extra trips to the gym and lighter eating. This makes me sad and worried. I'm also cold all the time again, which was less of a problem last year, so I suspect that whatever has changed is actually metabolic on some level. It's a major bummer to have new clothes feel tight. I will fight the fight. I will not let my body win. But I miss the easy days of coming home to find myself a few pounds lighter instead of heavier. I will take that year as a gift and hold it close to my heart for the rest of my days.
