Last week in our virtual Slimming World group my leader gave me a special shout out for being one of the few members who had lost every week since joining 4 weeks into lockdown (8 weeks without a ‘stay the same’ or a gain). So, naturally, this week I was doomed to fail and I saw a 1lb gain on the scales!
However (mi lord) I can explain …. two weeks ago, after years of very painful periods, that put me out of action for 4-5 days of the month, I bit the bullet and asked the doctor for some chemical assistance. I knew that the mini pill could help, but obviously this wasn’t an option whilst we were still trying for a baby. The doctor delivered and prescribed a progesterone only pill called Cerazette. I took my first pill on the Thursday morning and by Friday evening I had bloated like a pufferfish!
I spent the rest of the week trying to lose an unwarranted 1lb gain, I was tighter than usual with my food and exercised more but nothing doing and I gained a pound at club. What was even more annoying was I only needed to lose 1lb to get my 1 stone award. However, I knew the reason and I just had to suck it up … I’ll hopefully get that award next week.
The good news, my boobs have grown by an inch (every cloud) but the rest of the bloating seems to have settled and the scales are heading south again. Fingers crossed I’ll see a loss on Thursday’s weigh-in.
