Congrats to all of you GO us !!!

Jelbb I'm going to do the same thing as you and Forest. I looked on monthlyinfo.com yesterday and realize that TOM is Monday, which is explains why I feel so violently b*tchy these past few days (and also why my M&M dispenser is almost empty).

man, i don't think i could not weigh during TOM...good work girls! i am just too scale-conscious...it's my motivation for doing a little better when i see a gain...although it does tend to put me in (more of a) foul mood when there is again during TOM...maybe i will try this next one, in 3 or 4 days it should be!

is it a long weekend for everyone in the states this weekend, or just canada? or just alberta? i don't even know what the holiday is for, just that i get paid to not work monday!

It's just Canada... and yeah, it's the Civic Long Weekend. Aka., The "Dude,-I-have-Monday-off-work" long weekend.

And yeah, my gains during TOM put me in a foul mood, too, so it's kinda nice to be sitting around for a few days, hoping to see a loss at the end of this TOM. *fingers crossed*

We have a long weekend in Manitoba too, I am looking forward to it, gotta love a paid day off!

I was UP 0.9 this morning, yuck! Not entirely sure why, hopefully it's just a little blip, and it'll go down tomorrow!

Ughn. I ate a big ol' greasy slice of pizza tonight. My friends wanted to hail back to high school days and go to the gross place across from our high school where we all used to eat two giant slices of dripping pepperoni and a pop nearly every day at lunch.
I only got one slice, I dabbed the grease off the top, and I didn't get a drink, having water at home instead... but I still feel like my weigh-in tomorrow is going to be OFF THE CHARTS bad. But maybe I'm just overreacting.

...to be fair, if the (rather large) slice of pizza was 500 calories, I think my total calories for the day come to about 1,490. Maybe I'm just being crazy. I dunno. We'll see tomorrow, lol.

Aw, Jelbb don't worry. Me, I have my first planned mega-splurge tomorrow. I'm going to eat a small breakfast and barely graze throughout the day and then get a huge thing of ice cream. We're going to pick my brother up from camp and apparently this city has the best ice cream my mom has EVER had in her life. It's 2 and a half hours away from our house, so it really is a once-only chance that I have to take up on. I'm not going to use the food to reward myself for anything, or anything except, I love ice cream and I can't give that up. I can give anything else up. But I think once a YEAR maybe, barely eating anything and splurging on very unhealthy food is okay. I always just get a baby scoop of ice cream once a week. So I think this one time for the best ice cream my mom has ever had, it's okay to splurge once.
Well... maybe that still doesn't justify it. I can't justify it, but I'm doing it, and I'm working it into my calorie count for the day so I don't go over! NO ice cream is worth overeating (though what I am doing [depriving my body of other nutrients in order to eat ice cream] is no better, I suppose -_-).

Oh, and this is completely OT but I had to say it! My friend told me today that my pants are too big!!!!!!!!!!!! =D That's so happy. She's right and she NOTICED. I am too slightly too small for 12's still (they give me an unsightly muffintop) so I have to wear 14's (which are now too big on me) still, but they look too baggy. So it's the best I can do. But she noticed! I hope it's not long before I'm comfortable in 12's! =D

Jelbb, Pizza isn't "as bad" as you think - 1 slice (or 1/8 of a pie) is only 5 points in WW, and that's about 500 calories, give or take, so you're probably okay

Meg, it probably won't be too terrible, just eat lots of low-cal, healthy stuff during the day. Like bring veggies to snack on. You won't hurt yourself if you do that then have some ice cream

Am I the only person who weighs less at my TOM? I drop like a pound those first 2 days, and the rest of it I stay about the same as usual.
Anyhow, lost this week! -1.4 woot

Sometimes I gain, sometimes I lose. For me, it actually depends on the month - every other month I get TOM terribly - like cramps so bad I can't walk, horrible bloating, really heavy flow - and then the other months, its like nothing. So really, it just depends.

This is a bad month.

I don't get bad physical symptoms nearly as often as I did in my teens, but man I get moody as a mofo!
