Weigh-In … M&Ms and PMS

Today’s Weight: 207.0
Loss/Gain: +2.5 lbs.
Total Loss So Far: -24 lbs.
My eating this week hasn’t been all that horrible. I’m still learning to stop eating when satisfied, but after a day or two of “letting go” I was back on track.
However, a few days ago I couldn’t get enough of the dark chocolate M&Ms. I tried some milk chocolate ones, but they just weren’t doing the trick. I have a little (like one cup bowl) full of them, um…well, it was full and I would dip into them and grab about 10 at a time. I kept wondering what was wrong with me?!?! I wasn’t eating them until they made me sick, just dipping into them throughout the day. hhmm…..
Yea. Then it hit me. It’s “that time” coming up.
It’s crazy how for three-and-a-half weeks of the month if I overeat it’s because I just overate, but there are those couple of days where I can’t get enough of one or two certain things – usually chocolate and Pepsi. So weird. I didn’t crave soda as much this time, but definitely those M&Ms.
I don’t think it was reason for a 2.5 pound gain, but it did give me the clue of what was coming. So, I’ve done better the past day or so and I still see this rather large gain. Oh well.
I know it will come off next week after things are getting back to “normal”. 🙂
p.s. Check back tomorrow for some exciting news on my progress with the C25K program!

  1. I can gain up to 5 pounds when my friend comes to visit soon. I do not know why, but that is how my body does it. I hope you have a great weekend!

    hmm, PMS and M&Ms go hand in hand together with me too!
    Can't wait for your C25K progress!!


  4. ME, TOO!!! It wasn't until I turned 40 that I finally saw the connection between munching like crazy and “that time.” So hard to tame.


  5. I too see the connection between chocolate and PMS! I think they are best friends. I hope you don't let that gain bother you – you are doing great!

    Oh, the loveliness of being a woman! Maybe try freezing them, and then you can't chew them and won't be able to eat them as fast! I do that with hershey kisses. Doesn't always work, but it's worth a try. 🙂 Hope you have a good weekend!
