Probably Just Something Totally Inelegant

Sunday, October 07, 2012

The old me would have been really excited because after weighing 132.4 at Weight Watchers and 130.8 here at home yesterday, I weighed 127.8 here this morning. But now I know better.

The truth is that I had a strange sharp pain under my left rib cage that I had never experienced before. I just could not eat supper last night. The pain is better, but not gone this morning. I decided to skip my regular Sunday bike ride. I'll putz around the house and do a little housework before the kids come at 11am for child care. It very well may be something totally inelegant like gas pain. In fact, I hope it is.

No, now I'm not excited about a three pound drop in weight. I'd much rather be pain free and out riding my bike! After a healthy day of eating I'll be pretty much back where I was, at a healthy weight, but a few pounds over my ideal. And I'll be still contradictorily celebrating 185 weeks of maintaining an over 80 pound loss and still wanting to be a few pounds less.

    I hope it's nothing serious, but I agree that an unexplained pain in the side is more worrisome than being 3 pounds away from the weight you want, in either direction.

    Please let us all know how you are tomorrow. There's a hundred innocent things that pain could be due to and only a couple that might be of concern. Take it easy and try not to worry, but if it persists PLEASE get it checked out.

    Wow! I must have had sympathy pains and didn't know it! I started to feel pain inb my stomach yesterday evening! I was out with D & Gianna when it hit. The good thing is we were at Gattitown (sorta like Chuck E Cheese but wise too!)
    When I got home I popped some Pepto tabs and finally felt better. Go figure. If your pain doesn't go away in the next day, see your doctor. Better safe than sorry. I also want to be able to run with you soon, Marsha!

    You're right - being healthy is key. I hope you feel better soon! emoticon emoticon

    I am with you on wanting to be healthy more than anything. I so understand not feeling well and out of control due to it. It sure can ruin your day when you are not up to the normal activities.
    Hope you are feeling better today.

    Ah yes! Health trumps the scale every time! Hope it was one of those passing "stitches" and that you are back to feeling great soon!
    1989 days ago
    Sometimes we do just get these odd little pains here and there and they do usually leave just as quickly as they come. I hope that is the case for you!
    1989 days ago
    Hope you are better soon!
    1989 days ago
    Yes, everything is relative, isn't it? Hope it's a minor "stitch" in your side. emoticon

    emoticon Let's hear it for gas! That's something benign and will go away (hopefully very soon).

    could be a little gastritis or reflux.... whatever it is, I hope it goes away soon.

    1989 days ago
    Painful and maybe inelegant. Could be almost
    anything. Have a great day and putz away. HUGS!
    1989 days ago
    Interesting, the transition to where the scale is no longer the central focus of "happiness"... have we changed to being real, long-term maintainers, Marsha?

    Feel better, soon! emoticon Putter gently and Spark on! emoticon
