A few pounds
You have probably noticed that I have lost a few pounds recently. While I do not usually look favorably upon comments about my appearance here on clerkmanifesto, especially as it is a written medium and you can't see me, I cannot help but understand. Three pounds is a lot! It is between one and two percent of my whole body weight. So first of all let me reassure you that I do not have cancer and am not dying from some wasting disease. To be honest I don't even know why you would think that! I am in excellent health, and we can entirely attribute my recent three pound weight loss to a great increase in healthful living.
But since you have brought up my weight loss I feel I should clarify. I do not have a scale. I have not weighed myself in ages. When I say I have lost three pounds it is based on the looseness of my pants. My pants have grown a bit loose. My guess is three pounds of pants looseness. I don't usually like to talk here about my pants, but since you have asked, I have begun to employ a belt.
I don't love wearing a belt. What can I say? Sometimes there is a cost to clean living.
