So, yeah. It's a TMI post about female things. Avert your eyes if you don't want to read it.
It is an amazing thing when you finally put the pieces of the puzzle together that your body has been leaving hints for days about. I've blogged about the following in the last week:
* My weight is higher at night than in the mornings, generally things aren't adding up scale wise.
* Yesterday I was so hungry I could have eaten a small bear.
* When I got home yesterday, the Mister said, "You look tired." And I felt tired.
* My normal destressing exercises were NOT working. In fact, I am pretty sure "NOTHING IS EVER GOING TO BE RIGHT AGAIN." passed through my head. For no reason - I've been having normal job-related stress issues, nothing major.
Yeah, it was my period.
Ever since I've been losing weight, my monthly... well, hasn't been monthly. According to my gyno, it's because my hormones are out of whack - basically it's pumping out hormones for a 250+ pound woman, and it is going to take time for it to regulate. As a result, I get my monthly about every 3 weeks. My last was August 2nd.. and now August 21.
It just doesn't seem right to get your period twice in the same month, haha.
The awesome part is - I should learn to listen to my body. It is telling me the things I need to know.
