I made a HUGE step today in my weight loss. I was a bit intrepid about stepping on the scale this week. I’ve been sick for almost a week. I’ve had a ton of sinus drainage and it just really upset my stomach. On top of that, I think I had a stomach virus. For the close to a week, I puked almost every day. Yesterday was so bad that I wasn’t even keeping water down. However, I also know that you can’t starve a body and lose weight. The bodies natural reaction is to start to store what it has, thus, usually adding on a couple pounds. Today when I stepped on the scale, I was in for a HUGE surprise!!
I was down 6.2 pounds….in ONE week!!
I’m so amazed, happy, and relieved. Relieved that is that I also ate my first meal without throwing up today!! I just kept drinking water yesterday and all day today. I decided that I’d give my tummy time to heal and just keep full of fluids. Much to my relief, dinner stayed down and I was even ready for my night snack a couple hours later.
Not only am I feeling better though, but the whole family is. It seems they had the stomach bug too. I’m not sure who gave it to who, but I probably got hit the worst because of the lap band. Sadly, kiddo did have a fever for a couple days. She’s much better today and no sign of the fever. Also, I’m proud of her because she lost another 1.6 lbs. today as well!! She’s just on a slow steady streak and loses that much a just about every week. I keep telling her how good she’s doing, because she is. That’s really major that she’s doing it the right way and that it’s coming off slow and steady.
Hubby was affected by the stomach bug too, but he was fine by the time he had to work yesterday. He did have quite the “to do” list that he never go to last weekend. He just took his time and rested and seems to beat the bug the best!! While we all needed some down time, I did manage to get his hair cut. Boy did he need it!!
Well, that’s all that I have for you right now. I know, I’m so darn boring lately!! I do have photos to post if I can ever get on schedule with some of the photo memes. Miss K and I also went to go see a movie that I really need to tell you about!! Ah, for just a couple more hours in the day or just a day to play catch-up.
Oh, and the funniest….or saddest part of how much I’ve lost lately is that I have a brand NEW dress that I wanted to wear tomorrow night to our Appreciation Dinner for religion class and it’s TOO BIG!! Yes, this dress has been sitting in my closet because I was too fat, now I’m too thin. Isn’t that crazy!?!? I’m still wearing it and I’ll look good….and at least I get to say that I’m not that big any more. For a total, I’m down about 4 sizes now. Yes, that means that I’m getting into more and more “regular” sized clothes!! WOOT WOOT
What are you up to….or down to?? Let me know, because I do love hearing from all of you!!
