5 pounds

oh my god.  if there is one thing i hate, it is the bloating of PMS.  well, and the food cravings that come with it too.  i think i could eat everything in the house and still not be satisfied.  i'm not hungry, but i want to eat.  i feel like my cheeks are stuffed and i look like a hamster.  i know my belly is bigger because my pants are tight (where they were previously falling off).  i had lost 13 pounds and as of yesterday, i "gained" back 5:  in less than a week.  i know this is just water weight and i'll come right back off, but still.  PMS sucks.

(not to mention the mood swings, the insomnia, the intolerance for anything and everything,etc.  my poor husband and kids...  uugh!  will i just start already!!!)


  1. You'd think I'd keep a calendar, so I'd know what's going on. This is how I figured it out this month...

    N: "Man, this sauce is delicious! What's in it?"
    A: "Stuff."
    N: "Are you ill at me?"
    A: "No."
    N: "Well, what's in the sauce?"
    A: "Stuff."

    Aha! The light bulb went off.

  2. lol, nathaniel.

    technically, it is only +1.5 pounds as of this morning. it feels like +15 though. my pants are still tight. these are the ones i got after i had holly LAST WINTER and was really 15 pounds heavier.

    2 weeks ago i couldn't keep them up without a cinched belt.

  3. This is the funniest comment I have ever read, Nathaniel. It was like reading a conversation between me and Gary. Here was ours this morning...

    G: Don't you think you parked a little crooked in the space? (we drive to work together)
    E: No
    G: But you just got a new car and someone might park too closely on your side
    E: So
    G: Are you ill today or something?
    E: No
    G: So you are ok parking like this?
    G: Man, I was just asking....I guess you are just going to be ill today. Sorry I asked.
    E: serious eye rolling going on...

  4. Analee, I am there, too. Tight pants and all. It freakin sucks. I will not weigh until sometime next month-it's pointless. Good news about the 1.5 lbs, though!!!

  5. Not to scare you or anything, but, if you think this is bad, wait until you go through menopause (mood swings). Remember how Mr. B was referring to me as "volatile"?

    At least, though, you won't have the bloating to deal with then.
