    No matter what you look like: you ARE a shining nova!
    As am I... it is not only the outside that matters.

    Re: I know: silly, but it freaks me out...

    Thanks Christie!
    Although I am not tall (5'4"), 106 still is too thin for me, you are absolutely right.
    Yesterday I went shopping for clothes and it really struck me (unpleasantly) how thin I am.

    Don't quit the metformin.
    I don't know about the other two, but I wonder why she/he gave you those instructions.

    No words of wisdom here.
    Just do it, saying in advance you may not be able to do it, is a selffulfilling prophecy.

    Re: I know: silly, but it freaks me out...

    We'll see what happens Sandra.
    It is not that I mind the gaining, I am afraid that the gaining doesn't stop.

    Re: I know: silly, but it freaks me out...

    That makes a lot of sense Sandra, thanks.
    I just looked at my excel sheet (yes, I keep track... :D) and I noticed the weight gain started when I arrived in Morocco.
    In about 1,5 month I'll be in...

    There you might have a point Katrina.
    Maybe this IS something that happens to people who loss weight till a very low BMI.

    Ah, Ann, you truly are the voice of reason.

    "Women of a certain age"... I think that's funny... lol

    Re: I know: silly, but it freaks me out...

    Exactly that!
    It is so hard for me not to get into that diet mode.
    I ask myself "what can happen, when you would gain those pounds?".

    The first week is the worst, on top of that, you have been traveling, which can be exhausting on its own.
