This has NEVER happened to me in my adult life. I stepped on the scale for the first time in 2 months, fully expecting to see something mid way between not-good and awful. Instead, my weight is the lowest its been since the summer of 2010, and CK finally told me I was goal.

Presented to 75 people plus the new CEO today. If anxiety :barf3: counts for anything, I for sure earned my paycheck today. Fortunately no one asked any questions. Either I was very clear, or my subject was deadly boring, or people knew it would be cruel to torment me further. :laugh5:

I also swam this morning for 45 minutes at the gym we are trying out. It was really nice. And both harder and easier than I expected. I haven't done laps in a hundred years. I'm going to a period of insomnia which is nice...
