Sick as a dog .. is what I have been this past few days.
I literally was sweating out of my clothes. I would wake up drenched in sweat (sorry if it's TMI!). I came home Monday from work and was just moaning and groaning from not feeling well. My loving dogs stayed by my side. For every cough, Stitch's head would pop up and he would look at me as if he was saying, "Are you okay?". And every time I moved in bed, Lilo would come sniffing me to check if I was still alive. I love my dogs.
So I've been totally fighting it. I've been going to work and all that too! My job requires a lot of standing, talking, and sometimes yelling. LOL. I thought I wouldn't be able to recover.
I was so upset because I had just started my diet and here I was sick and in need of nourishment. So far i've only been having small meals/snacks during the day and a big meal for dinner, which was not part of my diet plan, but since I'm sick, I needed to.
Considering that I usually weigh myself early in the morning before I have eaten/drank anything, I decided to weigh myself tonight (out of curiosity). I was afraid to step on the scale. When I did, I kept getting off of it and going back on it. I just couldn't believe it. I'm down to 135 (starting at approx. 142 in the beginning of January). 7 pounds down! Wahoo!! I basically lost 2 pounds this week. I don't know if it's because I'm sick or because of what I haven't been eating/drinking.
I decided to try on my "old" clothes. They fit without me having to stretch them out! So I have new clothes! ;D
10 more pounds and I'll be good!
