Now I Know

Okay. I think I have figured it out. The answer to why I have gained five pounds since two weeks ago and why I have only lost three pounds since three months ago.
One, I told myself "Don't be too drastic! If you lose it too quick, it will come back quicker!" and Two, "I think I am going into what my dad calls his winter 'Hybernation Period'." Like him, I find that as soon as I merely suggest that I might be limiting my caloric intake, my body goes into its own form of calorie storage panic mode.
Now, how to reverse this phenomenon?
Well, I will tell myself: One--"Be drastic! Go for it! Life is short! Be thin now, why not!" and Two--"With this modern thing called planes, every month is summer somewhere, so why pretend that I am a bear about to go into a cave for the snowy winter duration? Live a little, and show off my beautiful curves while I still have them!" Okay, who am I trying to kid, even if I lose 100 lbs., I will still have curves. I've had curves since I was 12, now I have right angles! Looking to tone those down to a gentle roar...
