OK I weighed in this morning for my official gain amount

Though I may amend this if I manage to have a bowel movement today -- see, back at home and getting back to normal (even if my normal = constipated).


weight:  225.2 lbs

that's an increase of 3.2 lbs since my weigh-in a week ago.

Had a crappy sleep last night, though somewhat better than we did with all of us jammed into one hotel room, but Baby Girl was very fussy.

I feel stuffed up and headachey today - maybe still some of the residual crap in the air here in our unit?

So this is my first actual increase since I began in July...

I feel upset but at the same time - past me probably would have gained a lot more than I did by grabbing tons of comfort food and stuffing herself.

Current me is trying to look at things logically. 

Stress + eating out + less exercise = weight gain but no self-blame because being stuck in the hotel was out of my control.

What does Future Me think about this?  I'll try to peer into my crystal ball and say what I think she'd say about all this...

Future Me says:  "This is a bump in the road.  It's not a sign or a portent of how the year will go, so relax for once in your life, FAB!  
Get back on track, get to the grocery store, get moving (even if it's still dealing with laundry and other fire-related aftermath) and BREATHE damn it!  
You did an awesome job in 2010 and you'll do even AWESOME-er (yes, we'll pretend that's a real word) in 2011!"


  1. So happy your future self is such a hard ass.. lol.. :) The fact that this is the only gain you've had since starting, that's A HUGE deal! It means that you've gotten through the "normal" stresses without gaining.. that it took something TOTALLY out of your control to knock ya a little bit.. just shows that you can do this! :)

  2. I really love what your Future Self has to say about it, and I couldn't agree more! 2011 is going to be even awesomer than 2010! :)

  3. I think you are right to focus on how good you have done in this situation and what it would have bene like a few months ago had this happened. It would have been way more than three pounds. Hang in there!

  4. I like future you, she is one logical chick-wish I could be so logical. When I had a gain week sometime back, I nearly blew a gasket and my sanity. But then the following week I lost 4.5 pounds-so the grand lesson is that it all evens out-don't fret. I'm sure you will be lightening up again in no time.
