You know you're losing body fat when. . .you sink like a pile of bricks while trying to streamline.

Yesterday I went swimming. I was having a rough time, getting breathless and feeling like I was dragging. I decided to time my IM, even though I didn't think I'd get a good time. I went for it. As I finished my freestyle, I pressed a button on my watch. I looked at my time. I saw 2:43. I was thrilled. That was 5 seconds faster than my last time, which I had been one of my good times. I was patting myself on my back as I hastily finished my set so I could leave the pool. I looked at my watch again. It said 12:47. That's strange, I thought. When did my watch switch to the time mode? I pressed the button to look at that good swim time again. I couldn't find it. I pressed through the buttons again and found the timer still going! It said 6:08 and counting. I was swimming without contacts again, couldn't see a thing. . .
