Weight Gain Won't Clean This Post

Anyone get the laundry detergent pun in the post title?

Well okay this week I managed to gain a total of 1.8 pounds.  Go me!  Not really.  Rather upset at my body.  I guess my plans for pushing the loss to 3 pounds didn't go so well.  I didn't mess with my diet.  I ate more protein, less salt, more fiber, drank more water, exercised more.  The estrogen won out.  Damn!

All I can do is hope that I hold out even the next couple of weeks before the transfer.

I did everything possible to lose that 1.8 pounds.  Boo!  I even ate BEANS last night for dinner. I made the beans from dried beans as to make sure the sodium content would stay down.  Damn estrogen is still constipating me a bit.  Every time my estrogen is up, I hope it isn't up too much, I get issues with weight gain and IBS.

I ate oatmeal yesterday too.  Adding in even more fiber so that not much fat would stay with me.  For two days I have weighed the same.  Maybe I should be thankful that I'm staying the same and not gaining?  Okay so I am thankful God, please don't let me gain more.

I think this jacks my BMI back up 34 again.  I think I told all of you before, at least once, that I am quite embarrassed by my size.  I'm a size 16.  I'm obese.  Wishing I were still a size 8.  But that size 8 is still in there, I ate her!  Hmmm...maybe that would explain why I'm having troubles going poo? 

I blame my weird sense of humor on the warped reading choice of late.  I'm reading a book by the Harvard Lampoon, a spoof on the Rings trilogy.  Thar be a lot of poo in them pages.

Well now that I've gotten the shit off my brain I feel a bit better.  Hope all of you have a fantastic Friday.

  2. This post put a smile on my face :)

    I also have a skinny person inside me. When I was married I was a size 6, and the dress was vintage, so a modern size 4. I'm now a size 14. Bleh.

    1. So many of us forget that at one time the sizes used to be smaller. That new saying they have about Marilyn Monroe being a size 14 or 16 should be edited to show that means a size 12 or 14 in today's standards.

  3. Try not to beat yourself up about the weight gain! You're doing what you can, and that's important :)

    I don't think you're that big, but I'm a size 16 too lol. I think it's a good size ;)

    1. I was wrong on the BMI..I'm 33 right now. But still for my height of 67 inches that is too fat. Unfortunately the average size for women in the USA is now a size 14 but so many things on the rack are for a size 8. Sighs...wishing I were smaller to make being pregnant easier on my body.

  5. I'm sorry you're not dropping the weight. I know it's frustrating. I can't imagine how much more when you're trying so hard to get ready for your cycle.

    1. I finally dropped 0.6 pounds overnight. Adding in one more set to each floor exercise helped. I still can't believe I'm up to 50 sit ups.

  6. Oh man... when I look back at myself as a teenager.. That bitch was a size 6 and complained about her body. If there were a way to do it I would go back in time, slap her, then eat her.

    1. There are days I wish I had my teen body back...at least I didn't have endometriosis back then, that I knew of.

  7. I hope you can shed the weight you want before your next transfer. A friend of mine tried Paleo. Without exercise, she lost around 4lbs in a week.

    I've been trying to shed a few lbs, but I love food to much, so it's not moving. Happy ICLW!

  8. It's so frustrating when you do so much to lose weight and it doesn't come off. But hey, don't be too hard on yourself, you are doing the best you can and adding treatment and meds, well, that usually throws my body into gaining weight no matter what.
