'How can that happen?' I asked Husband. 'All I did was watch one episode of House and go to bed. I didn't - excuse me - evacuate my bowels, in fact I had dinner after I'd weighed. So how can I lose that much overnight?'
Without hesitating Husband replied, 'You were breathing.'
'I find it helps to keep me alive.'
'You take in oxygen but breathe out carbon dioxide. Carbon is very heavy.'
Husband bases this theory on A-level chemistry, O-level biology (failed) and a lifetime of making stuff up. I believe him.
There was me thinking I had to eat less to lose weight when all I need to do is sleep and breathe more.
So if you notice me heavy breathing don't think I have lung disease: I'm just slimming.
