Congratulations Tigo.... I'm pretty sure you'll be burning alot of calories when you hit the gym. I wouldn't be to worried to much about gaining weight no matter what you eat. Christmas comes only once a year...so might as well enjoy all the goodies that come with it.

How is everybody else doing so far???

Merry Christmas everyone and all the best in the New Year.

Is there anything you guys take that has given you any sense of relief??
I've dealt with this cr-p for the last twenty five years and I'm so sick of it.
Excercising is like going one step forward and two steps back. I just don't feel like I'm getting anywhere.

I appreciate any offers of advice or suggestions on this.

Ibuprofen helped me. Double bra-ing worked too -- less bounce, less ache.

Honestly, it was one of the reasons why I opted out of Aunt Flo's visits. 6 years and counting, PMS free!

I'm joining the bandwagon. I am currently pre-dieting.

Yes. Pre-dieting. It's easier to wean myself into diet mode than to just jump in. Basically, I am eating around 2000 calories a day. I figure out what I need to drop down to calorie-wise to lose weight at the rate I want, then I start weaning myself daily to 100 calories less than that goal (so I have a little cushion for extras). Then when I'm consitently at that calorie level for a week, I am officially "dieting".

It's worked for me before. I started yesterday. Anyway, yesterday I got down to just under 1800 calories, today I am hovering around 1550 calories. I will start struggling at around 1300 calories.

Is anyone else on MyFitnessPal? We need to friend up!

I would love to be PMS free (pregnancies do not count).
Yesterday, I had exploratory surgery done on me. My specialist wanted to see what's wrong with my uterus, I told my specialist he had permission to pull the whole thing out right then and there. He smiled and said 'another time'.
Guess...I'm gonna have to wait for awhile yet.

No....not on fitnesspal. Congratulations on your dieting though. Sounds like you're making good progress.

I've never had a baby :)
I medically suppress it via continuous birth control.
