I guess it's time for a semi-annual update. I've never gotten into the habit of posting here regularly, though I'm not sure why. But since this is essentially my gaining journal, if there's not much gaining going on, there's not much to report, I suppose.|
That, however, has changed recently, as my gaining urge has gone into overdrive since Thanksgiving, appropriately enough! But over the last 10 days or so, I've been eating like mad and enjoying the regular feeling of being very bloated.
And the results are already showing up! Before Thanksgiving, my weight was hovering in the mid-270s. You probably know how it goes: one day you're up a couple of pounds, but the next week you're down. I hit the magic 3-0-0 in January, but that didn't last too long, and by late Spring/Summer, I was as low as 268 or so.
Now, I wasn't thrilled by it, but I looked on the bright side: my clothes fit better, I had more energy, and I still was nearly 100 lbs heavier than when I took the plunge and started gaining.
And since the Summer, I had managed to gain back about 10 more lbs, give or take. Until last week...
Conveniently timed to coincide with the start of the holiday season, my appetite roared into town. And I have given in to that desire in a big way, with very satisfying results. When I got on the scale this evening, it registered 294. Yep, 294!!
So those fat cells that had ballooned to get me to 300 earlier this year were just lying in wait for me to stuff them full again. And stuffed they have been.
Among my latest indulgences has been a nightly consumption of a half an apple pie. I know, it should be a WHOLE pie, but hey, I managed a half a pie for each of the last three nights, and I'm stocked up for the weekend!
And, of course, that's not my only indulgence. I managed to eat big breakfasts every day and to eat double lunches 4 out of 5 days this week, plus snacks and big dinners.
Let's hope this keeps up 'til 300 appears again on the scale!! I'll try to keep updating more regularly...
