*star* week - what does that mean to you?

TMI or not I hadn't had star week for every long time due to contraceptive hormones (the injection).

So a couple of weeks ago I experienced my first star week in maybe over a year.
There was chocolate devouring, tears and a mahoosive weight gain (+2lbs!!!)
I was hormonal so didn't stay to group but my consultant said on average the gain is 2lb-4lb when its "that time of the month".

Low and behold the following week I was down 2lbs. I wonder if this affects everyone...people at group don't seem that open about it.

A poor girl last week had gained 3lbs and was sobbing. It was her * week. She had been as good as gold. If she loses more than 3lbs tomorrow I will know that it was water weight like the consultant said.

I will definitely be keeping an eye on this. Not just for weight but to get to know how my own body works (cringe)- god I hate it when people talk like that!
But seriously, I'm 25 years old and should know that if I cry at Eastenders I'm probably due on...

Update:- * week girl lost a whopping 5lbs!!! Water weight it is.

Get back on that wagon!


So I took 3 weeks off of Slimming World. And I gorged. And I gained 2.5lbs. I know it could be worse. It could also be better.

In 8 months I have lost 7lbs.

In 8 months I have lost and kept off 7lbs
In another 8 months I could lose another 7lbs

I am back on it. Going to chill out about it. (Me and chilled do not belong in the same sentence).
I'm going to go slowly, take it easy. Enjoy my journey.

777 Challenge II. Somethings gotta give

Last time I did the 777 challenge I gained 0.5lb. GAINED!
BUT the week after I lost 2.5lbs (my biggest weekly loss to date).

Here we go...

Self-sabotage vs. Determination

When emotions are running high there's a very thin line between throwing the towel in and igniting the drive to persevere.

Which side do you fall on?

Day 2 of Kay's Soup Challenge

Well I'm not very good at this.
Recently its been hard enough for me to stick to SW at all, let alone introducing a really complicated and difficult challenge.
And starting on Easter Weekend?! Am I mental...??
