15 Pounds and Counting...

In case anyone was wondering what happens when your main diet consists of potatoes and bread, let me tell you.  You gain weight at an alarming rate!  Each time I go to the doctor's office, the nurse has to slide the bar a little bit further to the right.  This past time was the furthest it's ever been in my entire life.  So far, I have gained a whopping 15 pounds...seems a little fishy since I'm referring to this time period as "my cleanse".   I'd like to think that some of the weight gain is water retention, or maybe the steroids, but I think not.  I'm quite sure that a diet high in carbohydrates will do this to you.  My face is now delightfully round with less visible cheekbones.  

This too, is temporary...and, it's better than the alternative.  

I will think of this as part of my metamorphosis, just like 
The Hungry Caterpillar, 

who eats and eats and eats and eats....

but then emerges into a beautiful butterfly
Any change, even  a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
