That is 4.2 lbs more than I weighed when I first weighed in on this blog. It's 10+ lbs. more than I thought I weighed. That would explain why I'm so sore and tired and why just walking down the hall and getting dressed makes me feels winded.
This news has wrecked my day. I should have let myself have one more day of denial because now I have to be pleasant company for the Thanksgiving festivities, and I'm not feeling pleasant at all.
I think I need to go back to weighing myself everyday. It is just too easy for me to put on blinders and not face what I'm really dealing with.
Maybe some of this is not my fault. I'm having so much trouble sleeping. I've been moody, and PMS is worse for me than it's ever been. I'm in those perimenopause years, so maybe hormones are working against me right now. After doing some reading on the subject I ordered some progesterone cream. It should be here at the beginning of the week. I am hoping against hope that it makes a difference.

I'm going to leave myself and you with this thought from the article:
"Remember, perimenopause is a time to reinvent yourself. This means investing time and energy in yourself, not everyone else."
