First Monday morning, I was up 2 pounds from the day I proclaimed my 15 pound weightloss by May 4. For some reason, until just now, I was sure it was 3 pounds. But it's 2.
I was pissed.
I mean, I NEVER set strict short term goals, and the one time I do, I promptly go in the wrong direction. So, now I have 17 pounds to lose by May 4.
Then, I can't eat. My band has suddenly tightened up! Like nobody's business. I had to eat my yogurt sooo slowly it wasn't even funny. I PB'd creamed spinach and mashed sweet potatoes. WTH.
So I mentioned it to a few banded friends who went through the usual list of things that make us gain weight/give us restriction.
Stress? What do I have to be stressed about? Life at the new job has been great.
Can't be that.
Period? Nope, I don't really get one of those.
Can't be that.
Then Monday night I went to bed and had dreams I was in pain in the uterus region. A period is less common than a kidney stone for me, so I was dreaming about kidney stones! When I woke up I just had that achey "oh crap, I'm getting my period" feeling.
A few hours later, I was spotting. Now it all makes sense. No wonder I can't eat anything and my weight is up.
Hopefully the weight will disappear after this is over.
P.S. Mother nature couldn't have actually had a period herself or she wouldn't have cursed us with this!!!
No Lie, I swear to you I opened this Yogurt RIGHT AFTER publishing this blog and this was what the lid said. Is Mother Nature laughing at me?!?
