See.. here's my story, lol.. I started Seasonique in 2007. It was great, 4 TOM's a year, blah blah whatevercakes. So FF to 2010 and I want to lose weight. And I'm the SLOWEST LOSER EVER.... but in April of this year I realized something: all the weigh ins I would have when I was on the yellow-tom-week-pills, and not having as many hormones in my body, I would lose faster than when I was taking the green-every-day pills.. So FF to about 3 weeks ago when I decided to heck with it, I'm going off them to see if its having any effect. What I've learned is that a) DH will still buy condoms, lol b) I don't hold on to water weight as long (on BCP's I'll hold on to water for 7-8 days, yey, and off it its maaaaybe 2-3) and c) I have way more energy and I'm not as hungry.
I'm going to stay on my little experiment until 8/19ish, because I go on vacay the last week of August and I surely dont want to be on TOM then, so.. we shall see what happens in the next 19 days!
My "math" ie, calories in/calories out comes out that I should have almost always been losing 2lbs a week, but I've never ever
lost that much. I'm lucky if I lose .5 a week! LOL.
