Before | After

Now I'm confused.

Woke up this morning and decided to weigh myself again. I'm not sure why I decided to, but something persuaded me to.

Before I went to Melbourne before Easter I was at 88kg. Monday morning last week I was down to 86kg. Yesterday morning I was back up to 88kg. This morning I was 85kg!

What?

And no, I didn't do anything stupid like try and starve myself to get rid of the weight I had put on (I like food to much to do anything like that). In fact I ate everything on my diet (and for once I did actually eat everything. Usually I skip a piece of fruit because I don't like eating whole apples, oranges, etc) and only what was on my diet. One day shouldn't be able to account for 3kg.

I am well aware of the fluctuations in a persons weight during the day, which is why I always weigh myself in a consistent fashion: In the morning before breakfast, but after I've gone to the loo, wearing my casual around-the-house clothes.

Perhaps yesterday was an anomalous reading? I don't really know. I do know I shouldn't have eaten all those chocolates on the weekend (evil Haighs!), but it doesn't seem to have been as bad as I thought.

I'm confused.

Water. Your body is made up of it. Your weight can vary quite easily by that much depending on the time of day, how much is in your stomache, but most importantly, how long it has been since you last drank something vs. how much fluid you have lost in that time. Remembering that 1 litre of water = 1kg. A 375ml glass of water adds almost a half a kilo to your weight.

Good point. I had forgotten about that.

Salt can do it too, if you eat a little bit of something like Chineese you can easily weigh 2kg more than normal. It has something to do with salt helping your body retain water.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
