The Truth Of Tuesday Night

First off, I have to put a shout out to a couple of my blogging buddies who are joining me for my weigh-in's on Tuesday:

Go check them out now and show them some love please!

I had a rough end to the week last week and into the weekend...and that would be putting it mildly.  The worst part is I knew what I was doing was distructive to my hard work, but I couldn't stop.  I was in full PMS eating mode and just drifted from one thing to the next.  Chocolate would be the favorite "go-to", just ask the bag of chocolate chips, but it wasn't limited to that.  There was ice cream, chips, beer nuts, candy, cheese and just about anything else to help fill the craving.  It's the one aspect where I don't have a firm grasp of moderation.  Try as hard as I might, I can't seem to convince myself to say no.  It's easier at other times of the month, I can convince myself to just pass it up. Anyone have some good suggestions for coping?

So, in light of the weekend, let's take a look to see how the scales reflected that shall we?

Last week: 237.75 lbs
This week: 238.50 lbs

+ 0.75 lbs

It was clearly not as bad as I had thought, but I was hoping to keep my 1 lb swing in action.  Next week will be better.

I should report, I was a "winner by being a loser" again at TOPS.  At the beginning of every month, we reward the person who lost the most the previous month by rewarding them with 1 month of free dues ($10 value)  This is the second month in a row that I won.  It's such a good pick me up!

So, it's a new week, so here is to being awesome!  Let's all be awesome together!

Pretty Strong Medicine


  1. My trick to curbing the craving, I DON'T buy any of it during the grocery trip before my period begins! That way, if it's not in the house, I can't binge!

    I was in full-on GIVEMECEREALORGIVEMEDEATH mode this weekend, but because I didn't have it in the house (3 weeks and counting!) I couldn't eat it! :-)

    <3 <3 <3 U!!!!

  2. I had a I need to carb load weekend for my race! As far as the chocolate cravings, I usually get those too with PMSing. However for some reason mine is really late which has me worried. But I also try not to buy anything that I am craving when my period rolls around.

  3. Sorry about the gain but if its less than a pound, I don't call it an actual "gain" per se.. You are doing great though! Keep up the good work. It's hard with TOM because you want to eat all the things!

  4. You are doing something right if you keep winning! You are maintaining not gaining :)
