that time of the month.

that time of the month

Yesterday I had a little visiter. Her name is Aunt flow. My weight always seems to fluctuate during this time of the month so I didn’t think I’d lose much weight but, I was pleasantly surprised.

I stood on the scales and they read 101.5kgs which means I had a loss of 800g (1.76ibs).

Last week went really smoothly. I didn’t have any cravings and I stuck to my calorie allowance. Actually, I think a couple of days I went slightly over my calories but that didn’t seem to affect my weight loss.

Every morning for the past couple of weeks I’ve been writing down 3 things that I’m grateful for. This morning one of those things was getting my periods.

For most of my adult life my periods have been very irregular. When I was at my heaviest weight of 116kgs, they were non existent for at least 1 – 2 years.

Since I’ve lost some weight my periods are generally pretty regular. I track them on my iPhone using one of those fancy apps and I tend to get them every 38-40 days. There is definitely some improvement needed but whenever they do arrive, I’m so grateful for them.

It gives me a little reassurance that my body is slowing getting healthy again and that hopefully I’ll be able to fall pregnant naturally when the time is right.

So just as a little re-cap, I’ve lost a total of 3.3kgs (7.2ibs) in 2 weeks, “yay”.

    Hey! I’m so Glad I’ve found your page! I started my journey at 116.7, I’m 8 weeks in and I’m not 107.4kg. My lowest so far is 106.4kg, but it was my 30th birthday on Friday, so I let go a little! Looking forward to getting back on it, and will definitely follow you.

    I have always had irregular or non-existent periods, and it’s so nice to find someone with a similar experience. They’re still irregular, but I found after 2 weeks of losing weight they came back!

    Well done for your progress so far!
