How is it possible that I've gained eight pounds since the fall, but when I measure myself I'm still the same size? Is it possible that I could be gaining weight in a way that doesn't show on the outside? Maybe I'm increasing my muscle mass. Or increasing the density of my bones. Or growing a tumor. Could a tumor cause weight gain without increasing my surface area? Remember, I'm only 5 feet 2 inches, so I'd expect an eight-pound weight gain to show at least a little.
I don't want to be heavier!
