Wait... I weigh HOW much?

This could be a bad Twitter post:

I lost 7 pounds this week!
.....................
No, I'm not on the Biggest Loser. I'm not even exercising, except for pulling creeping charlie out of my lawn and playing with the neighbor's cat. I'm not dieting. I'm not dehydrated. Yet, I lost 4.4% of my body weight in a week. What gives?

Update: Turns out it's all water weight. I'd cut out a ton of salt and had decreased carb intake (without decreasing calories) as I wasn't running - went from bloated to not bloated.

pulling creeping charlie out of my lawn

You know, if you changed that line to "pulling creeping charlie out of my bush" it would be the EXACT euphemism RBR uses to describe a particularly perverted sex act she's into ...

... is what I heard.

Hahahahaha! My word verification word: "cloying"! As if!

Unless that's a euphemism for a perverted auto-erotic sex act that I heard RBR is into. Because in that case ... touché.

Your next poll should be: "Estimate how many times RBR was touché-d in her lifetime."

I'm only being mean to RBR because she was mean to me first on my blog.

Did you take a big poop?

Sorry, but it needed to be asked. Also, I wanted to beat the others to the punch.

@ SQ: *eyes narrow* let me guess you heard about my Jenny Craig weigh and you are just rubbing it in?

Sure, the skinny guys loses 7 pounds, but the fat girl? Nada.

@ G: Suck it. (I imagine that would have to be auto- as well, since you can't get any girls to come to your party. I hope you have been doing your yoga.)

have you been under mental or emotional stress? my metabolism reaches hummingbird-like levels when i am stressed and i lose weight like house keys.
(that last sentence only makes sense if you know that i am terribly disorganized and lose my house
keys approximately once a day).
loss of muscle mass from not running?
loss of a set of really really big keys that are usually in your pocket when you weigh yourself?
other than those, i am out of ideas

I am always amazed by how much weight can fluctuate like that because of water weight. Because of that, I always try to weigh myself after my long weekend run. That is when I am at my lightest!

I can't lose 7 pounds in a month, or a year and you lost it in a day or two?? NOT FAIR!!!!!!!!! I want a sex change operation.
