That time" having several meanings for me at the moment...
First of all you should know that I'm coming to the end of my weight loss journey, even though I'm just now becoming active on the SP website. In that sense, "that time" means that I've gotten to a point of comfort with the program I've been running & the support I've been receiving. I still plan to run my same food & exercise routines, but the time has come to find some extra motivation! So, far I'm liking what I'm finding around here. =)
"That time" also means that I need to buckle down. You know how they always say the last 10 pounds is the hardest? Well, I've got 15-20 to go and I'm already struggling. Summer is around the corner, so that's going to mean trips out of town, days at Sea World with the kids, and plenty of opportunity for me to make poor choices. I know there are people who advocate a "cheat day" each week. I don't think I'm going to go that far, but I do think I'm going to allow myself one meal on our trips out of town. (Sea World I can handle with a picnic lunch in the car!)
And the final definition of "that time" for me is something purely female (guys, you may want to quit reading now - don't say I didn't warn you). That time of the month... TOM. And it is a doozy this month! I've gained 5 pounds over the last3 or 4 days. FIVE POUNDS!!!! Seriously? Yep, seriously. This is beyond anything that usually happens, so I'm a little freaked out. But the really weird thing about it is that despite the gain in weight and the visible bloating, my pants are fitting looser. So I'm hoping that means I have good news on the horizon... I'm just impatient for "this time" to pass and for "that time" to get here!!!
