Why did Eve have to eat that damn apple???.....This is the first time I have had to deal with my monthly "present" since starting my lifestyle change, and let me tell you it sucks ass....who's idea was it anyways to call it a present?....pfffft
Not only have I not lost any weight this week, but most of the week the scale was telling me I had GAINED 3 pounds. Talk about a depressing Bonnie roaming the house for days on end.
I had a chocolate meltdown on Wednesday night that I couldn't control, and a salt craving on Thursday, that almost brought me to tears.....What the hell is happening to me?
I mean I'm ok now that I have got it out of my system, but I hope it's not like this every month. I'm back on track now, and I guess I will just mark this down as a failed week, pick myself up and move on.
The rest of the week I stayed true to the diet, and I know women retain quite a bit of water, so hopefully by next Saturday everything will be the norm again.
On a positive note, I have dropped almost 2 pants sizes since I started which feels great. I started in a tight 24, but now I'm into a loose 22. I am hoping to be into a 20 within the next 2 weeks. My t-shirt went from a XXL to a XL as well. Obviously I'm trying to find a positive to my negative week, and this helps some.
I did pick myself up a t-shirt that is a L at Old Navy. It's a little snug in the arms, but I will get into it in no time. I really wanted the shirt, and they didn't have any bigger sizes, so I figured I might as well buy it, as it will give me an incentive to lose more weight. I mean come on it is MÖTLEY CRÜE.....I couldn't resist....lol
Now for my measurements:
Current Weight: 268 lbs (13 lbs)
Chest: 45" (4")
Waist: 41 1/2" (3.5")
Hips: 55" (1.5")
Left Arm: 17" (0.5")
Right Arm: 17" (0")
Left Thigh: 32 1/2" (2")
Right Thigh: 32 1/2" (2")
That makes my total inches lost this week: lost 1" (chest), gained 1" (hips)
Grand Total: 13 1/2"
* grand total for each area in parenthesis*
I didn't even want to get on the scale to look, let alone take a pic, but I said I was going to be honest with myself, and with my followers, so here it is in all it's glory......gained 1.6 lbs this week :(
So until next week, here's to getting back on track, getting rid of the excess water, and living life to the fullest!!!
