No Change


I drank enough water to float a battleship, yesterday, hoping to banish the bloat. No such luck. It was still all tightly entrenched when I weighed, this morning. I hate this. I hate getting puffy and swelling up and weighing more than I should. *stamps foot and pouts* I work hard, dammit! I stick to my calorie cap, I drink barrels of water. When I am physically able, I walk. Miles. I don't have a cycle. I had that shut down years ago. There is no reason for stupid Puff Monster nonsense. And I am sick of it. I need to talk to my doc about this, I suppose.

It is still weird that I "have" a doc. :P

It is a sunny day, today. It is going to be a little cooler, just into the mid fifties, and some wind but it is supposed to warm back up as the week gets underway. It is a bit freakishly warm for this time of year but I am not complaining. If I don't have to deal with ice and snow and bitter cold temps, that is just fine with me.

I am going to grab another cup of coffee and sulk for a while.


  1. Have your food journal analyzed by someone that truly knows that they are doing. A calorie is not a calorie. It is not just simple math.

    I know how frustrating it can be to work hard and see no change.

  2. What a bummer :( I hate. hate, hate bloat, especially if you can't pinpoint why it is happening. Lame.

    A funny bloat story-New Years Eve was a bit raucous. There was some fried goodness, salty food, and toooo much drinking. The next day, for giggles, I weighed in and was up 8 freaking pounds! My husband (who ate and drank much more than me, natch) weighed in .2 LESS. GAH!

    Hope the bloat goes away QUICKLY! Have a great week :)

  3. hope this week is better for you!

  4. I hope the bloat monster goes away soon.

  5. You're doing the right thing....keep at it...don't give up. It will will. I believe in you.

  6. Caffeine? Maybe you do need a diuretic from doc... Bloat monster is a bitch-sorry dude.

  7. Hope you are watching that salt intake, Erika. Sodium does hide amongst things. Anyway, hoping today is a good one for you! I'm already for the next weekend and I haven't started Monday. I just get so tired!
