A few more words about losing weight. The ounces were still dropping until suddenly I was up two and a half pounds! Losing weight is similar to cycling up a switch-back mountain: you don't want to give back any altitude (or weight loss) and have to climb it again (the subject of a later post). So I was distressed. Until I remembered that I had taken ibuprofen for a few days. I guess it also promotes fluid retention, because a few days later the unwanted pounds disappeared without any change by me. Halfway through the month, and on goal.
