    Oh great! Can't win for losing! Today is day 10 for TOM and it's still heavy. I really hope it leaves before Saturday. I'm planning to re-act my husband's and my first date from highschool. Wait, not that I'm implying that I had put out on our first date...no not at all. I just wanted to wear white pants...yeah, that's it! Anywoo, I don't think it's natural for a human to go this long. Shouldn't I be anemic by now or perhaps, I don't know, dead!!! Geesh!

So is it a side effect of Phen? If so, this is sooo not cool. I have places to go, people to see. I can't be walking around wearing my son's diapers! The worst thing about being on TOM these past 9 days is that I feel so yucky that I do not like to work out which isn't good either. I'm worried about my weigh in on Monday. My goal was 3lbs this week.

    I've been with TOM for the last 2 and a half weeks...I was blaming it on stopping my Depo Provera birth control shots back in February...I had to take them every 3 months for a year and should have had another in May but my year was up...Since most people have wonkie periods while on the Depo I just assumed it was my body trying to get back to normal...
    Sheesh, I guess now I know it's the Phen doing it...and with my luck, prolly the Depo adding to it..I just know when I'm on TOM I can't stand my real Tom...(hubby)...*snicker*...but really I hate this is happening to you all but glad I ain't alone...

    And I gained back a pound and a half since yesterday because of all the dang bloating...Haven't changed my eating at all so that's got to be what it is...
    Let's hang in there girls..if nothing else we are making the Tampon/Kotex executives richer...lol





    My starting face! My new do, 6 months later!

    I'm usually a 5 day TOMer, this month on phen I was 14 days! Week of spotting and week of full on TOM. Ugh... I've gained 3 lbs since Friday and it hasn't gone away yet. It hurts my feelings.
    210lbs-170lbs 10/01/08 - 3mo of phen & 3mo of just D&E
    208.5 lbs 05/04/10 - Wk 0 (started phen again)

    Mini Goal: 170lbs by my Vegas vacation in August



    Final Goal: 150lbs

    I have a question: I know a lot of people gain during TOM. Does your gain go away after TOM is completely gone, or after a day or two? Thanks!
    LOL, I think all of our bodies work differently. Last month I barely had it, now this month has been nuts. I've had it since last Monday! It spotted the first week then BAM on Saturday. I'm bloated and pissy... My TOM has been screwy since I started phen, something my BC pills should have taken care of.

    Oh, and I always gain the week before my TOM and I lose it in the middle of it. My GYN thinks it's funny...ha ha ha yeah, laugh it up. But I always lose it after, unless I don't eat right. You should be fine

    Nine days...try 22! I did get a break for maybe 12 hours or so one day but TOM is still wearing the welcome out. It is better than the first couple of weeks but enough already! I totally sympathize with you though...I hate TOM!

    I feel your pain. Usually my TOM is about 3 to 4 days and fairly light. Last month since I started Phen I was on it for about 2 weeks (many days of spotting and then full) and it was heavier. I was stuck at the same weight the whole time.

    Angry TOM

    OK, I have two words...NINE DAYS!!!! Seriously, I've had it for nine days, I'm starting to get a little frustrated here. I mean, I'm usually a three-four day kinda gal. Not helping my Challenge goal...lol

    Hopefully, I'll be able to get rid of it by the weekend so I can lose some of this bloat by Tuesday when I go to the doctor
