Some Part of Me Is Gone


When I was first planning on doing pool therapy, I tried on an old swimsuit to see how it fit. It was a bit tight in the hips. In the weeks after, I apparently lost enough weight that this is no longer the case. I can’t say for certain how much weight I may have lost in that time because I don’t have a scale at home.1 I just know that some part of me is gone, and I am absolutely, completely, totally okay with that.

I just wish I could keep up with the number. I’m almost tempted to use crowd-sourcing to buy a scale. I won’t, especially since I know how well that went with the home repair fund.

Still, it was just a nice surprise to have this week.


  1. The weight that I report on MFP comes from doctor appointments.
