I'm glad I made time to take a bath last night. I feel like in the past few days I've been telling myself to be gentle but I've actually been getting harder on myself... and it's my body that I end up criticizing the most. I haven't been at home consistently with my scale for a while... but the scales I've been on in the past few months (including my own) put me in an 8 pound range and really the numbers aren't so bad (I can remember times when even the upper number I'm seeing was a wonderful number, it's all perspective, yes?). I've just been feeling a little bit squished in my clothes, just below my belly button and around my hips, for me the most uncomfortable place to gain feel I've gained weight. Once again I know I'm stressed out when I start overly focusing on the possibility of a weight gain... I need to just breathe gently, keep eating well and exercising, drinking enough water and getting enough sleep, limiting caffeine, and just know that I am doing the best I can for myself right now.
Keep it up, sparkfriends!
