Monthly weigh-in

Well, my monthly weigh-in was up a pound and a half to 124.5. UGH. I hate that I wasn't able to take off that extra weight yet...but I WILL. Oh yes, I will.

On a possibly related note, I am still just 'spotting' and haven't officially started my monthly yet. It's been five days of this! I have had full-blown PMS the whole time, too...which has totally kicked my booty. I don't know what the heck is going on with my body right now. During the past few days I've had a few long episodes of heart palpitations, severe cramps and headaches, and of course the lovely night sweats, so I'm thinking it's just a big mess of peri-menopause.

BUT! I'm not using that as an excuse for the gain. I gained this weight early in the month, and I had time before last week to lose it but didn't. I slowed my metabolism down by slacking on exercise late last year and now I've got to just rev it back on up again! No biggie...I CAN do this!!

  1. Have you gone to the doctor? With the heart palpitations, I would have. Kind of scary.

    The joys of our monthly cycles--oh how they change when we get older, what a pain in the neck.

    Love the photo of your daughter and husband! (I'm really behind on blogs, can you tell?)

    Instead of having one set number, such as 123, I think you should have a range such as 122-125 due to normal fluctuations. (Choose your own numbers there.) You look absolutely beautiful in your photos.

    Oh, btw, thanks for mentioning the hair loss. I've been experiencing that--not a lot, but some with every brush or comb through, I have hair in the comb. I never had that before. I never realized how important good fat was, but I think that's why it's been happening.
