October 23 and Fifty pounds lighter....
Oct 23, 2009Well, I have had a virus for the last week or so and I have been miserable! Coughing my head off and sleeping all the time. I finally had to give up and went to the family Dr. He checked me for strep throat and gave me a Flu test. I checked out negative for both so I guess I just have a regular run of the mill virus. All I know is that I'll be glad when it's gone! It's been really hard to stay hydrated and eating is on the back burner for a while. I have been craving warm liquids because of the sore throat, so coffee and tea has been my staple for the last few days... I know it's not good for me but I can't help it. Once I start feeling better I will concentrate on getting back on track.
As far as my weight loss is concerned, I feel great! I have found myself moving more and walking longer distances! Yay... I did pick up some generic Benefiber (cheaper) and that has helped me immensely! (Thanks for the tip Grammie.)
I now weigh 309, and I will be thrilled to get below the three hundred mark! I haven't been under three hundred in pounds in over ten years.
My daughter is disappointed that I'm not losing weight at a faster rate, but I have to say as long as I'm losing I am satisfied. It has taken me twenty years to get this out of shape so it will take a while to get it off.
Well, I guess that's about it for today. I will check back in when I break the three hundred pound barrier!
Hugs to all from Michigan...
