I mean, it LITERALLY has not moved.
But you’re doing all the same things……soooooooooo this makes NO SENSE.
You start blaming yourself.
You start cursing your metabolism.
You start beating yourself up.
“It was probably that extra serving of mashed sweet potatoes 2 nights ago! YOU IDIOT!! PUT DOWN THE POTATOES!”
