I feel different. It's like my body has slooowed down, or is resisting something. I have a couple of ideas what it might be, but there is a nagging little voice that keeps saying to me, "It stopped working for you, and now you're just starving yourself." Sigh.

1. There are signs of TOM. Amenorrhea (likely attributed to PCOS) has been an issue I've dealt with since puberty, and I'm used to getting it, then not getting it... Sometimes I'm monthly and sometimes every other or few months. Heck, I didn't even know I was pregnant for my daughter until around 10 weeks. Regardless, I think this is just about a month since my last menses.

2. I could be pregnant. There is always a chance. I'm not on BC, and haven't been on it regularly for over a year. I hate the way it messes with my hormone balance; I'm messed up enough hormonally as it is! lol So, you never know. I'll have to go back over P&I where it talks about the symptoms while on protocol. If I am, then I have to make some serious diet and supplemental modifications, stat.

3. I am about to hit a weight milestone. I haven't been under 150 pounds since high school. Granted, my lean muscle mass was much higher then too, so I wore much smaller clothing, but a very likely weight set-point nonetheless. OK - I know, I know. I've only lost under a pound a day a couple of times and zeroed once. It's my blog and I'll whine if I want to. ;)

4. Sodium intake has been relatively high compared to my normal diet. For some reason, for the past week I haven't been able to stomache food without a bunch of salt on it. Last night I had 1 boiled egg + 3 whites and a good-sized kosher dill pickle for dinner. Delicious. Except that now I'm crawling down my numbers... Woe is meeee... LOL

AH! I'm going to SNAP out of it now!!

Gotta get baby to the bus... RUN!

ok, now look... stop thinking that way. You knew this slow down was going to happen. You're just anxious to get into the 140s because it's so close.

You know that stress can cause your weight to slow down so stop letting that scale get to you and just let those little hcg men do what they do.

I loved the pooping story yesterday by the way... I've certainly been there. I think that may be the cause of my slow down too...hmmm.

P.S. I've got my Amie sized suitcase all ready & matching bikinis for both of us, so you'd better stop worrying about your losses... You're doing great girl!

Yeah, what Moni said, plain and simple. It's just that time for things to redistribute. You weren't around during one of JPS's round where she went an entire 2 weeks playing with the same pound, up and down, up and down, and yet she lost 2.5 inches off of each thigh. What is up with that? Just proving how this is FAT ON THE MOVE!!!

Hey Amie, you are even worse then me regarding worrying when loss stalls, haha. You are doing so well, it is hard for me to believe that you need to worry. Nonetheless, like you said, if you are feeling different, I mean like very hungry, swollen ankles, losing fat in your face, yup, something is not right. But now is a little too early to think about that right? Although I understand your reasoning. Btw, are you going to eat the cottage cheese? ;-)

Ps. I have read all your comments, thnx. They are very helpful. ;-)
