Entitled to occasionally Whine ...
It is horrible you know. Even when it is totally rationalised, even when you know it is not real and it has a very good reason for its appearance, even when you have all the credentials you need for its fast disappearance, even when your mood, your head and your body all scream water retention, a gain is always a gain!

I woke up this morning, and because yesterday I did an extra 20 mins in the evening in the treadmill, and because I ate exceptionally well (for a good dieter) for dinner, I thought I'd might see a few more grams gone. Yeah right missus! Tough luck! There was a gain of 1.2 kg!!!! Yes I know! Tain't possible!!! One can't gain a kilo and two hundrent grammars in 24 hours when they eat fruits, veggies, and a nice lean grilled fillet, and they walk 7 km in the treadmill. They can't...can they?

Unless...they have back pains...and the cramps begin...and their period is coming in the next couple of hours!

So I know. It is not a gain. But it is still a gain, if you know what I mean. It is a friggin number that makes me upset to see, even if I know it is not really real!

Bottomline is that in my present hormonal (this is greek for full of hormones..hehehe) state, I can realise that although I do my hard work, I am still subject to ups and downs, just like my body! And I occasionally need a good ole whine!

P.S. Ladies, thank you for taking the time and for having the kindness to support your Greek fellow looser. You are gems!

I agree that even though you KNOW it's not 1.2kg of FAT, it still plays with your head! This is why I'm now only weighing in monthly. I can't stand the stress of it anymore! Be good, and don't let this get you down :) Amanda.

Hey Lady!

You don't know me (yet), but I stumbled across your blog while visiting Denise's site and decided to take a peek. I hope you don't mind me leaving comments, but I understand if you do. Just want to say hello and let you know that I've enjoyed reading your words. There's something about your writing that draws me in. Perhaps it's your serious, but sincere and gentle tone, along with your resolve to do what you've set out to do. I'm not sure, but what I do know is that I'm glad I stopped by and will continue to read you.

And yes, that weight gain is merely a hormonal phantom that will surely disappear within a few days or so. Keep your head up, lady, 'cause you're doing a terrific job!

Much respect,

Yay, a new read! I came across you via Dazed :) I know all too well about the additional exercise and then the lovely gain afterwards! I'm almost about to get rid of the scale so that I can keep my sanity! Good luck, and I hope the scale shows something better next time!
