Everyone has days where they just feel fat. It may be due to what they’re wearing, what they had for lunch, or where they are in their menstrual cycle. Sometimes it’s just simply how we see ourselves in the mirror that morning. Whatever the reason, we all have days where we just want to throw on a pair of old, stretched out sweatpants and call it good. Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between when you’re randomly bloated or if you have actually gained a little bit of weight, especially around the holidays. While you could always start exercising or eating better (which are good ideas no matter what), you probably don’t feel up to moving much if you are actually bloated. Here are a few ways to tell whether you are bloated or if you need to watch your cookie intake.
If it seems like you have gained weight overnight, then you are probably just bloated. Bloating can be caused by many different things, but it normally pops up fast and goes away after a few days. If your pants seem to be shrinking in the wash each time you wear them, however, it might be time to check the scale. Extra weight can sneak up on us, especially during the winter and around the holiday season. It is less likely that we will simply go outside and walk around when the temperature drops, which can greatly impact both our weight and our mental health. People often say that their mental health is worse when they aren’t happy with how they look, and not being able to fit into your regular clothes can definitely impact that. It is important to remember not to be too hard on yourself and know that your weight is something that you can change.
