As Texas Sara pointed out in my last post, WHAT was I grizzling about yesterday? I HIT MY WEIGHT GOAL. Yeah.... *basks in the glory for a minute* My aim was low-57s by Monday, and when I stepped on the scales, there was 57.3 blinking up at me. This morning, that's 57 on the nose. So yippee, yay and all that.

I celebrated this momentous occasion last night by eating dinner in my pjs - barbecued steak, spiced sweet potato and veggies - then going to bed with a hot water bottle clasped to my belly. I slept like a log - didn't even hear Bike Boy get up at 4:30 or whatever time it was - and feel a lot better this morning. I can feel the tummy grumblings just lying in wait though. I suspect by tonight I'll have a full-blown pain party going on again. Boo! IBS sucks.

Here's hoping it remains a grumble for now - I have to fit my training in between clients this morning, no time for being sick!

For the non-Metric players who are too lazy to do the conversion, 57 is a smidge over 125 pounds.

I really hope the IBS comes to nothing for you. It sucks big time. You may already be taking these but i thought i would mention them just incase, but peppermint oil capsules can really help to soothe and prevent it striking too badly.

Thanks Cat, I'll search out some and give them a try. I have some peppermint tea somewhere - might give that a go in the meantime.

I've had this since I was in primary school, so I'm well used to it. Good nutrition mostly keeps it in check, but sometimes it just likes to remind me it's there.
