Even More

Since Monday is my official WW weigh-in day.... here's the update. This little bout of the stomach flu took a total of 5.5 pounds. In 4 days. Let's hope I can keep it off now that I'm feeling better....

The Viral Effect

Well, according to the scale this morning, this little bout of the flu has lost me 4.1 pounds. Not a bad side effect, but I'd really rather have skipped the whole thing....

Stomach flu = not fun. Two days of being in the, ahem, acute stage... where all I could do was drink a little bit of fluid. I managed to eat a total of 7 crackers in about a 36 hour period. I've finally had my insides settle down enough to eat small meals... chicken soup, some mac & cheese, even a little salad... but I have no appetite. Seriously, no hunger or even any real interest in food for 3 days. According to what I've read on the Internets, it may take several more days to get my appetite back. Well, if nothing else, maybe this little bout of the nasty and painful will have a good impact on the scale?

Well, I'm down 1.6 pounds from last week. That's good news... but I'm still way up over where I should be. I've gained 10 pounds this spring, since I went "off the wagon" at my birthday. Ugh. I'm stocking up the new kitchen with healthier stuff.... stay tuned.

I'm up by 2 pounds. I had a very indulgent weekend, with pizza and wine and gelato and salty stuff, and apparently all the walking I did all over town wasn't enough to make up for it.

Now that I'm fully moved in and settled in the new place, it's time to get to work again and focus on better food and more exercise. Easier said than done, on these summer days when all I want to do is lay on the couch in the AC with a dish of ice cream....
