At my annual check up this week, the doctor noticed I'd gained weight in the last year.

"Yeah, it's weird," I said. "My clothes still fit--how could I have gained weight?"

She asked me if I get regular exercise--I told her my schedule: TKD 3x a week, ballet 2x a week, swimming 1x a week.

"That's probably what the weight gain is--you're gaining muscle mass. You're actually now within the normal range for your height. Before, you were a bit underweight."

Now I'm not. And that extra weight is muscle! Cool!
