My weigh in was the other day & it was still at 260 - which I guess is alright since I am totally in the depths of the bloaty/PMS ocean. I typically gain about 2 pounds during this time so I'm hoping it'll go down next week.

right now I feel like no chair could hold me. No doorway is wide enough. No concrete sidewalk is strong enough *not* to crack under my weight!

Ugh, I am totally with you here. I'm doing well with my food and I was under my limit yesterday but what I was eating was not the best - I get out of class at 10:30 on T and Th and usually am so hungry I eat my lunch and then am ravenous by 3 or 4. I had eaten all my snacks yesterday (didn't bring enough) and I broke down because I was so hungry I had a headache and I bought a muffin from the cafe here. It was the smallest one in the case and looking at the varying calorie counts on muffins in the food tracker even if I ate the most calorically crazy I would still be under but still!

I also dislike the fact that I am bloated and gross and despite weighing consistently 147.2 for the past few days, today I am up 1.5 lbs. and I'm sure its pure bloat. Gross!

Just wanted to commiserate - I feel your pain!

As predicted I've had a pretty crappy week so far - I'm trying not to get down on myself, and trying to make good choices most of the time still.

But, I've gotten home at night and just been ravenous. Monday was fried chicken meal, last night I had a piece of leftover chicken, udon noodle soup. Then a big later I had a soft pretzel and 5 mini corndogs. And some candy. The only reason I had half that crap in my house was because I went grocery shopping on an (apparently) empty stomach.

Exercise? Haha! Last night I went in to bed at 8! And I watched a movie and started thinking that it had to be like 11 - it was 9:15! Ha! I get soooo tired - so I just try to accept it and give myself some slack.


I really do feel like I have zero control over my body though, and its frustrating. But - a slip up doesn't have to be the end! I just need to keep trucking along.

Well, it has caffeine in it, so that helps. It's actually been a long time since I have taken it with any regularity, but I remember when I did, it was like an instant good mood.

Does it help with moodiness?
I can get the cramps and water weight under control.

iron is supposed to stave off the menstrual crabbiness, and b vitamins are supposed to prevent general crabbiness.

good luck with your crabbiness! remember - it's cyclical, which means that it'll be gone next week!

PMS strikes and I lose all control.

I get headaches, and I'm tired and achey and all I want to do is eat crap and sleep.

Friday I caved in to some emotional eating (I had a craptastic day and had mac'n cheese). It actually wasn't too far off cals wise from what I was going to eat, so I didn't feel so bad. Plus, I figure sometimes I NEED to emotionally eat - because I knew if i tried to eat something healthy, I wouldn't have been satisfied and eaten more anyway.


I don't know where this is going...I just wanted to whine and hopefully get some support!

Oh! Also, are there any vitamins or something that will help with crabbiness???
