So my first weigh in came and went and I think my first week went incredibly well with very few slip ups. So when Sunday came around I was looking forward to getting on the scale and possibly seeing at least a pound gone. Especially since I had been drinking a lot of water and I was using the restroom every few hours. I stepped on the scale and boom! 5 pounds gained. Trying not to get discouraged I decided to just keep on trucking. Then came this outrageous hunger. I just wanted to keep eating...even when I was incredibly uncomfortable. By today I had gained 10 pounds since the 29th of February. Now I will be the first to admit that I haven't been eating all that great since Monday, but I have never experienced weight gain like this before. Not pregnant. I did however, stop taking steroids last week and I have heard that some people have weight gain after stopping them. It as just been crazy and I am trying to get a handle on this. I can see the bloating in my stomach and my face is starting to become rounder. I have surpassed being 250 pounds. Even at my highest I have NEVER broken 250. I am kind of at a loss as to what to do. Tomorrow we have inventory for my job and I am going to try my best to keep to the lunch I pack and avoiding the vending machines again. Especially since they are catering lunch for us. I am trying not to let this get to me but this radical gain has really thrown me for a loop.
Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will have better news.
