Saturday’s weigh in was pretty good. I was down .6 pounds to 154.8 pounds. The bad news was that I had a 102 fever and felt wretched so all I did was weigh in and then go straight home (thanks to my husband being willing to drive me there and back). I think part of this traces back to last Tuesday (the day we ate at Denny’s). I was in a situation where I had to spend an hour outside in the cold and blowing wind. Perhaps that knocked my resistance down.
I’ve been sick since Friday and still feel achy and have a fever. I’ve spent most of this weekend in bed. I haven’t burned very many calories, but I haven’t been very hungry so I’m OK from a point standpoint.
I was super unhappy to feel so bad on Saturday. Saturday was our 23rd wedding anniversary and we were going to go out to dinner. I had thought about it carefully and had chosen an Italian restaurant where I could watch my carbs (no pasta) and my calories. Currently, we have postponed the dinner out until I feel better. My husband also got a little bit sick and had a fever for one day, but it didn’t hit him as hard as it hit me.
So, no exercise since Thursday, but food has been good. And, I was super happy to be back in the 154s for the first time since 1993. I’m only 6.8 pounds away from being considered lifetime at goal when I weigh in. And, only 8.8 pounds from my goal weight. I’ve been thinking a lot about that, but I’m just tired to say much about it right now.
