So, I learned in science class that you can't really DESTROY matter... it's got to "go" someplace. Therefore, whenever anyone says to me "I've lost 10 pounds..." I reply, "oh, they're not lost; I've got 'em right here." I never seem to have any problem at all FINDING weight... it's the losing of it that gets me!
And, so Kathryn's question fits right in...
Why is so easy to put on weight but so very difficult to lose it again?
Pernicious creatures, those fat cells.
