I'm going there...

I hate it when I go for my WW weigh in and I've actually gained 1/2 lb. from water bloat due to Aunt Flo.

That blows.

In other news, how is everyone else doing with their WW? :)

Re: I'm going there...

  • I totally feel you AF weight gain pain.  I BF and am on the pill, so I don't get my AF, but have definatly seen her results in the past.  I am doing ok on WW....in 6 weeks I've lost 8 lbs...not great, but I haven't been doing all that great tracking.  I am just happy I haven't gained yet.

  • Ugh, I HATE weighing in during that time of the month!!  It's never good, and I just feel so bloated and fat anyway. 

    But overall, I have lost almost 21 lbs since the first of the year :) I have really slacked off lately, haven't been tracking anything...but even so, I still "know" what to eat for the most part, so I haven't gained anything and still lose some weeks.  I didn't run at all last week, so need to make time this week. 

    I need to buckle down again, since I'd love to lose another 5-10 lbs before the summer.  I was just enjoying being back in all my old clothes...one night this weekend after I got home from having a few drinks, I went in my closet and tried on all these dresses and pants I haven't worn in a few years - like going shopping, it was so fun that they all fit again :)

    I love closet shopping - especially when I don't have the cash to front REAL shopping. LOL.

    And super yay for your weight loss!! Holy cow. Makes me feel like a slacker. I'll just say I took the holidays off! Ha ha.

    That is AWESOME stephanie!!! 

    I actually tried on my RD dress yesterday and it fit!  It was still a little snug, so I wouldn't wear it out quite yet, but it zipped!!  I am finally on a good streak after plateauing for almost a year and then gaining at the holidays.  We're going to the beach in August with a bunch of Joey's college friends, and i refuse to be the "fat wife."  So I still want to lose another 15-20 lbs before then.

  • Weigh in did not go well for me on Saturday but that was to be expected.  My mom was here for a week a half and I hate a bunch of good tasting but bad for you food.  Plus it was Ava's birthday so I had lots of yummy Publix cake.  But I am back on it now.  So sad to lose my breastfeeding points.  :(  This week is going to be rough!!!

    Way to go w/ the 21 pounds since the first of the year!  That is AWESOME!

  • Aw, thanks y'all :)  Hmmm, I would post pictures, but I have no idea how to do that.  And, I guess I need to get a recent one snapped :) 

    Lauren took some pics of my boys last fall (got one of my favorite pictures ever of them together!), and I happened to end up in one...I was SO.FAT, that was definitely motivation to join Weight Watchers.

    Plus, I just booked a vacation with one of my skinniest friends, so that's definitely renewed my motivation to keep going :)

  • Wow Stephanie, that is awesome!!!  I am super frustrated-I can't lose any weight.  I know it's because I'm BF'ing and I just don't lose any weight until I quit, but it's very discouraging.  I want my body back :(
  • Stephanie, that is so awesome!   Congrats!   

  • Wow, 20 lbs since the beginning of the year is amazing! Awesome work, girl!

  • Stephanie--that is kicka**!! Awesome job!!

    The scale is finally starting to move again. I'm down 8 lbs since the beginning of the year and am 4 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight.  My goal is to lose another 15-20 so I'm a size 6 (am a 10 now)

    On a pissy note, I went to the doctor's yesterday and I had a skinny old nurse tell me that "I was NOT thin" and whatever I was eating was not working for my body. I've had to completely redo my diet to account for all the injuries that I suffered during childbirth. So far this year, I have cut out all dairy, all carbonated drinks, coffee.  Then this nurse told me that I need to cut out salads, all dark green vegetables, tomatoes, cucumbers strawberries.  She recommended that I go no-carb...WTF.

    Needless to say, I left the office in tears!!  Now I have no idea what I should be eating.

    That old b!tch should be out of a job. Pronto. WTH are you supposed to eat? I'd call and report her.

  • WTF does she want you to eat?    Who tells someone not to eat dark green vegetables???

    Random, but actually, my girlfriend was recovering from a blood clot in her lung and they told her no leafy/dark green veggies. Something to do with the iron and clotting.

  • Yep, she told me this because I have a blood disorder and actually have a problem with my blood clotting.  I'm a bleeder.  I've always been told to avoid aspirin and this is the first I've heard about avoiding the dark green veggies.

    I really want to go to a dietician that will design food menus for me based on my chemical make-up..No idea how to find someone and how much that would cost $$..but this is now at the top of my list if I hit the lottery.

     

  • holy hell kathleen!  that is seriously not cool!  hugs!

  • Kathleen, that's crazy!!  I'd be super frustrated, too, and not have a clue what I should be eating.  In your situation, I bet a nutritionist could really help you figure out what would be best for your health...sorry, girl!
