Blown up like a balloon. (warning - TMI)

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

I don't know what my problem is lately.... a couple of weeks ago I gained 7 lbs in 2 days... I thought it was because Aunt Flo was late, but evidently not!! I didn't lose the 7lbs.... in fact, I gained 3 more!! I don't understand it at all. I've been working out, I've been eating the same as I have been all summer (admittedly not as well as I should be, but still...)

I just don't understand this!! Why bother even trying?? I was 127lbs this time last year... The gyno put me on bc because of the pre-menopause & I immediately went up to 130. Slowly been rising so this summer I've been floating between 130 & 133... this morning I weighed 140!!! WTH!!

I'm thinking of just stopping the bc pills & having a period every 2 weeks like before... at least I didn't have a huge belly back then. I'm so depressed that I've been munching on M&Ms this morning.... I can't seem to stop myself! ARGH!! This is the opposite of helping. But Monday I worked out at the gym for 45 minutes & yesterday 50minutes & the weight just keeps on piling on. I'm not going to the gym today. Forget it. I'm going to go home & eat some shrimp & brown rice & then I'll go to the farmers market & pick up some corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, & potatoes. I'll skip the Kringla & the zucchini bread this time. Maybe the farmer's market will make me feel better.


Thanks for listening to my bxxxx session today. It made me feel better to type it.

    It is always good to blog it out. I would get back to the doctor and see what they have to say.

    I agree with the ladies here that you NEED to contact your Dr before you do anything......
    I am so sorry that your scale is going the wrong way and if you are not on the BC you will get your period every 2 weeks. My sister has been playing with her BC for 1 year trying to get her period normal. So I know how hard it can be. I am the opposite where I am getting mine once every 8 to 10 weeks because of my age (40). But because I have PMDD I have food cravings and tender boobs and mood swings for 2 to 3 weeks, so that isn't so good. I hope the farmers market helps you out. Hang in there.
    F.Y.I. The only way I could get to 130 is if I cut off a limb, thought that might cheer you up. LOL

    You need to get in touch with the doctor and let him-her know that you are putting on this weight so fast. emoticon

    That must be so frustrating. emoticon Maybe talking with your dr.? He/she might have some advice. Seems weird, especially if your routine has essentially been the same.
