I ran into a former coworker last weekend at the Circle K. I had been to the Pet store attached just before and was waiting on manfriend at the register, gazing happily at the kitties playing in the store bins next door.
I heard my name, and there she was. She wasn't sure it was me. She'd been gone for several months, but we kept in contact via email.
Coworker: "I almost didn't know that was you, you lost so much weight"
Me: "ah, it's break up weight, I'll likely put it all back on"
I think scientists should devote their energy to figuring out why your body does those things like make you not hungry, and lose weight when you break up. Sell that, instead of magic diets, and pills. It's obviously the bodies natural reaction.
No wait...that's my million dollar idea. Stay tuned. How to lose weight on a wine and ramon noodle diet, and very sporadic, half hearted exercise. Obviously...it's possible.
Now that I'm back to working out all the time. I'm gaining weight. Imagine that.
