I'm up by a pound this week :( I haven't had anymajor blow outs I think it's due to having started my period and I'm bloated and feel rotten as hell!! Is it normal to be heavier on the scales during this time? It's because i feel so rotten, I want to pig out on comfort food , but the more reasonable side of my brain (the part that knows how much I will regret it) has so far stopped me really going to town! So far I've had:

Brekky: 2 toasts, hot chocolate

Lunch: Cheese sarnie and low fat pkt of crisps, 1 angel delight (no sugar) and 1 pear

My sort of comfort foods without blowing my whole diet into smithereens!! I'm going for a salad tonight with a low fat lasagne meal. I hope I can get past this couple of days without ruining everything.

You are probably right that your gain is due to totm and the really hard things is that thats when the muchies can often strike, You are definatly doing to right thing by being as sensible as you can and riding it out


you retain a lot of water on a period and if you are feeling bloated then this would be a cause of your extra pound. Try not to beat yourself up over it, you can lose the pound as quick as you put it on. This cold weather does not help either as it makes us feel we want to eat more....

Thanks for your support guys. If I don't stuff my face with chocolates then I know I've made progress and that for me is what eliminating old habits is about! I don't know what it is about chocolate but its literally the only time of the month that I could cry real tears for it!! :cry:As it is I've kept myself in check, I've had a few moments, but I'm feeling better again, and I have told myself all day that this will 'pass' and I will be much happier in the long run for being strong.
