Does anyone have trouble staying on their diets during when TOM visits each month? How do you handle it? How do you motivate yourself to continue the exercise during this time?

I don't have visits anymore ...(BC pills), but when I did, I would actually just notice how crappy I felt (bloated, etc)...and think, "If I just do like 15 mins of the elliptical, I'll feel a bit better". I didn't worry about diet during that time. It's one of those things I just had to do, you know? Anyway, once I got my butt on a machine, I would do a little more than 15 minutes (since I was already off the couch and at the gym). Then I just felt better and accomplished, and knew even though it was very little exercise, it was leaps and bounds better than nothing.

Not sure if that helps any, but I hope so!

water after eating?
Water has no calories. It will not make you fatter. There isn't a lot of research about when to drink water because water won't hurt you unless you are drinking gallons of it per day.
