My body is official bizarre.

Last week I was on the emotional edge because of gaining six pounds in seven days. Ridiculous, I know! Granted I about to start my monthly gift and definitely indulged during a weekend away.

It was a blessing and a curse - though I was upset about it all week (just ask my boyfriend), the big gain also prompted me to be super careful about my eating, though I didn't work out at all (because of said period).

Needless to say my jaw hit the FLOOR when I saw the scale this morning. Let's take a look at the numbers shall we?

Before the big gain: 
207.8 lbs
Last week: 
213.8 lbs (+6 lbs)
This week: 
206 lbs (-7.8 lbs!!)

Down 7.8 lbs in a week?! I don't know what was going on in this body last week. In past few months I've never noticed that much of a fluctuation in my weight because of my period  before, but maybe I just never happened to catch it before and always weighed in right before or right after.

Or maybe my scale was just messed up last week. Who knows!

I'm just SO relieved and happy. I'm back on track, and guess what? I've finally hit another goal! Officially down 20.4 lbs!!


  1. Arianna this is awesome!

    If it's any comfort, my weight also fluctuates about 5-7 pounds around my monthly visitor. Sounds silly, but midol totally helps. It's all bloat!

  2. Thanks ladies! And thanks for the Midol tip Christina! I usually OD on Advil from the first inkling of a period so I'll have to give Midol and try and see if it reduces the bloat.
