I'm slightly over my normal "fit" weight and by slight, I mean 5 pounds. Many of you may think 5 pounds is nothing but for someone of my petite size, it makes a HUGE difference. The impact of 5 pounds on my body is 1 pants size up and its visually noticable. I find myself avoiding jeans these last few weeks because they feel INCREDIBLY tight and suddenly, my stomach bulges. I showed my sister who normally says I am thin and she is disgusted and appalled at how something like that happened so quickly. I used to feel fit and now I just feel unhealthy and sort of sluggish. I'm going on a trip next week... and I really would like to be more fit by then. I'm not expecting a miracle or to be able to lose that weight in a week (is that even possible?) but any suggestions would be helpful.
