sick.

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

this week is my vacation, my boss goes on vacation on this week every year and i get the week off too...i had such high hopes of getting a great tan and lots accomplished, and spending tons of quality time with my little boy (two 1/2 years old) but all that got pushed out of the picture when i came down with a horrible stomach virus! starting saturday this week, i started getting stomach pains, and they progressively got worse throughout the day until they were so bad that night that i could do nothing but writhe in pain and cry! it was honestly so horrible, then the next day i thought i was getting better until the night time came-and then i was back in the same boat as the day before...this has gone on all week-i spent a couple of nights this week sitting up on the couch all night not sleeping a wink because the pain is so bad...(and making runs to the bathroom as well :( !!!) anyways...the one good thing that has come from being sick-even if it is only temporary is that i have lost three lbs! i had gained some at the end of last week with my period, and then when i got sick-i lost all three that i had gained, plus slightly more! i am hoping that i can keep those lbs off even after i am well again-but who knows...i know i have probably been a little dehydrated the past few days, and that is probably why they came off... i did go to the dr. yesterday and i had been there three weeks before for an ear infection, and he informed me that i had lost 7 lbs in three weeks-which was surprising to me because it seems like it just goes at such a snails pace these days, so i was very happy to hear that!!! so as of today i am like 1.8 lbs away from my goal of 142lbs...once i hit that goal, i think i am going to set a new goal of 135 lbs and then go from there. my first goal was to lose 100 lbs which left me at 147-which was great, but not enough for me so i changed it to 142 which again is fine and healthy, but i still want to lose a little more...i want to get a little slimmer, plus once i get to where i want to be, i want to have like a 3-5 lb cushion (for period weight gain or water weight gain, or for when i just have a bad weekend with lots of parties and get togethers-things like that.) i always think to myself-if i would have realized that i was 5 lbs over weight years ago and just lost 5 lbs it would have been a hell of a lot easier than having to lose over 100! so i feel like i need to have that cushion! lol anyways, im still feeling pretty crummy today and i think i am going to go lay down for a while and stop rambling on and on! it has been forever since i have blogged! i'll probably write another one when i get into the wonderful world of the 130s! CANT WAIT!!! that will seem so unreal! hope everyone is in good health and having a better week than what i am!
