Okay, not really. I appreciate its finer points, too (like a rather key role in basic human functioning, pretty complexions, and creation of new humans). I get that. I'm not entirely without reverence for the stuff.
I was NOT particularly pleased with the as-yet-unexplained and quite sudden gain of FOUR POUNDS. Count 'em, folks, FOUR FREAKIN POUNDS of what HAS TO BE water retention from Sunday to Monday.
I promise you, I did not eat New York State. Not even Rhode Island. I exercised. I stayed with my calories. I was very, very good.
So, my money's on some devilish combination of female hormones and cortisol, resulting in a freakish magnetism to mass amounts of water that likes to pool around my knees and, in more recent years, on my ass.
I practically slosh when I walk.
