So I lost 2 pounds this week even though my body fought me tooth and nail for every ounce. My hormones went haywire late last week so I: a) gained 3 pounds of water weight overnight - fun! b) had to nearly lock myself in a cell to resist totally out of control cravings to eat everything in sight.
I gave in to my cravings in a super controlled way so I could stay within calorie range - 1 oz of potato chips and a container of sugar-free chocolate pudding each day. But man, that did not feel like enough and even though I resisted the urges it was absolute hell. Just when I thought I couldn't take anymore I woke up on Monday and the cravings and water weight were gone - just in time for Labor Day.
This was the hardest weekend I've had yet, and I'm really hoping to not go through that every month. I don't know if I could be as strong next time around.
