I was expecting a gain. I hadn’t been on plan aaand that always means a gain.
What I didn’t expect, was to be quite as upset by it as I was.
I felt like I was spiraling, and I wasn’t sure how to stop it. I didn’t want to get bigger and put on more weight, and I was panicking about how to get myself under control. A little understanding and a cuddle helped me pull back from the panic precipice. Afterwards I began to plan, and I started to feel better – more in control. I’ve not been perfect, but having planned out dinners has really helped.
