Forgot To post this lastnight!!

Day 8
So woke up myself nice and early for the school run today. Today is going to be a good day. Weighed myself (as per my above post!) and I’ve lost 5 pound so I am SO HAPPY. Back in the 12 stone bracket so nice to see that on the scales lol.
Forgot to add, whopping 6 inches lost on bust, and waist also !!!!! Definitely the water intake helping with all that retention and bloating.

Breakfast 9:50 - x2 Aldi wetabix with skimmed milk. Lovely and filling. 200 calories.

Lunch 12:15 - x3 medium free range eggs. Delicious !!!!! 200 calories.

Snack 13:30 - apples and crackers approx 100 calories

Dinner 15:45 - homemade chicken piece quorn curry. Measured out to be an exact 200
Calories.

Movie time at home 18:00 - snacks with my boy. Treated myself to a medium sized 97 calorie bag of salt and sweet Propercorn Popcorn, and a Rocky small chocolate bar lol. Approx 200 calories in total for both.

Total today 900 calories. 4 litres of water consumed. Happy happy day.

I Know, I’m not in the habit of denying myself anything though because it will honestly affect my mood lol.
I know I’m only 10 days into this but the longer I’m doing it the more I’m enjoying it and the more I want to just make this a lifestyle for me. If I can live on a calorie intake of on average 800-1000 a day and continue to lose weight then that will do me.
I’m happy that I managed to eat well including treats with my son on that one day and still only took in 900 calories. I’ve made better choices instead of the way I’ve been living the last lockdown which would have been a takeaway and multiple haribo packets and multiple Cadbury’s chocolate bars for a movie lol. Xxx

PMS is here. I’ve felt awful the past 3 days. Uncontrollable emotions, irritation, itchy skin. I’m going from one extreme to the other, varying between anger and sadness. I HATE FEELING LIKE THIS. Every single month.

I’ve managed to stick to plan but I’ve felt so unmotivated to document. Periods due tomorrow so hopeful symptoms should ease by day 1 or 2 of menstruation.

I’m still here, just waiting to feel normal again xxx

So it’s been a MENTAL week, and by mental I mean my God my mental health has suffered. I don’t know if anyone else here suffers with PMS ? It sounds like a myth but it really is a horrible condition. I used to always wonder why I seemed to suffer with depression for only 1 week a month lol like honestly a part-time depression. Most months it’s manageable but 1 pre/period in every 3or4 I struggle to get out of bed, I can’t stop crying, I’m angry and hate EVERYTHING and EVERYONE.
My work life takes a knock, my friendships and relationship are fragile. It’s horrible. So hard to put into words.

Anyway, diet wise I didn’t stick to it. I didn’t go mad by any means but I nearly essentially substituted meals for chocolate. And my God, just carb cravings constantly which I did indulge in.

Anyway today, is the first day of normality !!!!!!! Thank god, I feel human, I feel like me.
I hopped on the scales and I’m still 12 stone 13 so a positive start to my day at least! I had fear I’d be back mid 13 stone again.

Today I am having a chill day with my boys, I’m gonna enjoy some nice food and not calorie count.
But tomorrow IT IS ON !!!!!!!! I’m back at it, 800 calories, let’s go xxx

That's so tough. It annoys me medics haven't addressed the misery some women experience with our menstruation. Glad you are through it.
