Recap: I started off the week fairly well, but towards the end I cycled back to Phase 1 (that’s NFP talk for menstrual cycle). I have long noticed my meal cravings change around this time (basically to ‘Eat everything, especially sweet and salty things!), but it’s only in the past year or so that I’ve tried to do anything about it. Normally, the scale jumps up 2-3 lbs every month around this time. But I’ve been working to mindfully curb the cravings lately, so instead of a big jump, I have only a small one. The cravings last a few days into the following cycle, so I have to continue to ask myself this week, “Am I really hungry for that? Or is it just a trick of my body?”

Wish me luck. And if you are also on a weight loss journey, good luck to you as well.
