In which I make my return...

Well, there's no point in rehashing the last week. I ate a lot. Of everything. Some healthy. Most not. In my defense, I had my first menstrual cycle in almost 2 years, so I guess that made me hungry. And insane. Or at the very least unable to rationalize more than usual. Oy!

October 23 marked 100 days since starting this blog. And I've not met any of my expectations. How to get back on track? I'm not motivated enough, for some reason. You'd think returning to the work force full time in another 3 months would be enough of a bee up my butt to get me going. Helllloooo, new professional wardrobe? COME ON, girl, you know you love to shop for business attire!

At last weigh in, I was maintaining 167 lbs. Unclothed. My mother-in-law asked me yesterday if I'd lost weight. Sweet, clueless lady. I thanked her and took a quick look at my swollen pseudo-prego stomach and sighed.
