LEIGH

just a weight vent again!

Recommended Posts

I feel like I have been trying so hard over the last 2 weeks with working out and dieting. Aunt flow came to visit early this week and it seems that i have gained like 5 of my pounds back! Is it just me that this happens to? I can't even fit in my jeans without seeing a muffin top! I guess it's due to bloating from all of the water I've been drinking plus the side effects from aunt flow's visit. Is this a serious condition? Can the Doctor treat it? Can I do something to prevent this from happening? Because it's very frustrating!

Thanks for letting me vent!BangHead.gif

This is normal. I wouldn't worry about it. Once your period is gone, the weight will be gone as well. Also, try not to eat salty foods when you have your period b/c that is what makes you bloat. Don't worry once it is all gone you will feel skinny again. smile03.gif

It normal. I always feel ginormous during Flow's visit. Just don't give up. The working out is helping - it's just going to take about 4 more weeks to really see results. It's frustrating, but worth it in the long run.

I agree with Kate, I saw results right away but then the last three weeks have been really bad and frustrating, but I have to stick with it-it will all be worth it in the end.

Keep up the good work and it will begin to pay off.

I agree with the others, the past few weeks have been frustrating, but the last few days have been pretty good, so I'm hoping it will get me back on track, and yes when flow visits I feel like I've gained 10 pounds and my weight loss efforts are pointless!

I am not doing WW but as trying to lose weight aswell. Just be patient I know its hard but honeslty one day you will try on your jeans and they will be falling off. Thats how it was for me when I lost weight before. It just kind of happened all of a sudden.

Keep up the hard work it will pay off!

I know how you feel! It's so hard to be working so hard and not feel like you're seeing any results! Hang in there - all your good behavior will catch up with you next week after your TOM is over and you'll feel fantastic!

 

And as someone mentioned above to try and stave off bloating you should cut out very salty foods and believe it or not actually increase your water consumption to reduce bloating... hang in there!

5lb weight gain is totally normal

your weight can fluctuate within 5lbs either way from day to day

so don't worry, there's nothing wrong with you :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
