You would think the weight gain thing would be gradual. Most women fluctuate several pounds in day. Why would this one-pound threshold make such a difference? I have no clue. But it is very real. It is not gradual. It is just there - BAM!
I have crossed that threshold. I think my trip to NYC started my weight gain upswing but Halloween candy, Thanksgiving feasts, and Christmas treats haven't helped at all.
My muffin top was rearing its head today. So much in fact, that I dropped everything I was doing at work at 2:11 (with only approximately three hours to work) and went to Target where I bought a new outfit (in my defense, I have sorely needed new black pants for a very long time, so it wasn't a useless impulse buy).
This pastry's muffin top is just like mine - voluminous and extra lumpy.
I need to start feeling better about myself and my body. I need to enjoy my favorite foods of the season and not stress about losing weight (but use some self-control so I don't gain any either).
And then...I need to get on the other side of this threshold.
