Yes, TOM. Time of Month. TOM, I'm here to say I OFFICIALLY HATE YOU, I REALLY REALLY DO!!!!
No matter what strides I've made in my weight loss, when it's TOM, I can count on gaining anywhere from 5-8 pounds just before my period. I'm FINALLY out of the 170's and bought a couple of MEDIUM size sundresses the other day... feeling good!... Doing it!!! Yay!!!!...and this morning, aprx 4-5 days before TOM shows up, I'm 171-172 on the scale. Now I KNOW I haven't "gained" that weight, it's JUST TOM being TOM! (Oh, how I loathe TOM!!!) It makes me feel like I'm "backsliding" somehow. It makes me feel like I'll NEVER get this damn weight off me! It makes me feel.... FAT.
(and my boss just came by my desk & offered me a home-made cookie...
GRRRRR!!! "I know you're trying to cut out junk food, but I made some home-made cookies if you want one."
ACK!!!!! And further more, I'm PMSing so I want one of those damn cookies!!!! ARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!! Don't do it, Beach Patrol, don't do it, don't do it, don't do it.)
It's not enough that we have to bleed and have cramps/headaches/backaches and mood swings, but nooooooo!!! - We have to have crazy cravings & weight gain too!!!
Sorry for the rant y'all. Just, you know... TOM!
