The journey is all about figuring out how our body works and what causes us to overeat or binge eat sometimes. If we know it is coming we can try different methods to deal with any issues that arise. I have a calendar and track this PMS time so I know in about 6 months roughly when it will arrive so i do not get stressed over weight during that time. I also know that what my food weakness is during the PMS and try not to have too much around on that week.
Best wishes for more AH-HA moments. emoticon

Yep, that's something we women have to deal with. Way to keep exercising, though, that really helps! Also, keep a close watch on your sodium level, since this can make you retain water. And make sure you drink plenty of that stuff, too emoticon

I'd rather be a has-been than a could-have-been, because a could-have been has never been, but a has was once an are."

Ok, I gained three pounds in week three, have been eating everything in sight the last few days, completely discouraged and bad self-talk....and totally exhausted.....

Then I figured it out.....this is my PMS week! I know I shouldn't be so excited about that but I realize I can overcome this and press on and I am NOT going to let this ruin my momentum!!

So, I still ate way too much today....but I did press through and run 4.5 miles!
