"How you doin'?"

Oh, ladies- how about that male gaze? The Joey smirk as he checks you out? I seem to have reached the point where I am suddenly visible to strange men again. Ick. Except at the Starbucks counter, where it got me really fast service. It took me a second to realize he was flirting though. I'm so out of practice.

I'm days away from TOM, so once again it is time for me to have a sudden drop in weight. My body is so weird, but I was stoked to see 116.8 on the scale this morning-- almost 3 lbs in a week. I'll bounce around this weight for the next three weeks, but it's sort of nice to be able to time weight loss based on my period. Do you think it's because I'm on the pill? I notice a drop in weight when I'm not taking it during the "dead" week, and the good news is that I don't gain it back when I'm back on the active pills.

Tomorrow is my anniversary (married 11 years), but we're going out tonight to celebrate. This is where we're going for dinner. I get a fill next week, but I'm glad to be nice and loose tonight :)


  1. I am glad you are down. My loss happens after my period not just before...hormones are just plain weird. and oddly after a good drop yesterday I am back up today. I am really paying for Christmas I think.


  2. mmmm....that menu has me drooling

  3. I always drop right after my (.) - can you imagine what it would be like to be a man whose body/mind/attitude are constant all month? What a thought. And as for getting noticed - how cool is that !!?? I look forward to that, actually, ha! And I can't tell you how many times my friend and I use that "how u dooin'" line - it was funny to actually see Joey saying b/c we've been saying it our way for so long.
    Have a wonderful anniversary! And enjoy what looks like an awesome meal!

  4. That menu! YUM!

    I have noticed the faster/better service effect of losing weight. Interesting indeed. And certainly welcome at Sbucks!

    Thanks for your supportive comments. I really appreciate it!
