So I've had a rotten week. *sigh*
According to my scale, I've gained 2 pounds this week.
I haven't eaten horribly. But (and here comes the TMI) I've been constipated since Thursday, and I just discovered what it is that's causing the constipation (a drug I'm taking for muscle spasms.) I've stopped taking it but the constipation hasn't resolved itself yet. I also ran a 5K road race on Sunday and I am having major muscle soreness from that still (I usually have it for two or three days after an actual race.)
And so I know that the 2 pounds I'm seeing on the scale are most likely due to those two factors, but it's still really disheartening to think of going to my meeting tomorrow night and seeing a higher number on that scale than the one I saw last week. *sigh*
I think I need to stop weighing myself every day (I've been doing that since I stopped going to WW meetings about six months ago.) But maybe it's not doing me any good now, it only seems to be making me crazy.
And I know one thing: if this constipation doesn't resolve pretty soon, I'm going to go out of my mind. I don't like resorting to laxatives (I've taken them exactly twice in my life) but if it doesn't clear up soon, I'm not going to have a choice.
