I can tell hormones are beginning to mess with me!

I had a great day yesterday. It was gorgeous and being outside for a good part of it. I even snuck into a store after 3 pm (found parking everywhere and up close) on Black Friday to catch a present on sale.

By evening though, my mood was slipping. I didn't know why. When I saw my husband and two sons grab some pie for an evening snack I thought to myself, "I can never do that again.". I can't eat snacks like that or I'll gain. And I felt sorry for myself a bit. Now normally I don't care about that stuff and I don't feel deprived. But I did last night and I knew it had to be hormones, but it didn't make me feel better knowing that. It also didn't help that I had gained 3 pounds on the thanksgiving dinner when at most I should have seen an 8 ounce gain.

Today I feel the hormones a bit too. Scales dropped a pound of that water weight, but with hormones still up, I probably won't see a big drop on the scale for several days if at all. And that means I'm not at 80 pounds lost for this journey or 100 pounds from my all time high. Those numbers seem like ancient history. Wah!!!! darn hormones!!!

Stats for 11/25/11:

Beginning weight: 255.6. Now: 177.2 (78.4 pounds lost)
