Measuring the race in forward movement

Managed to lose another......2/10th of a pound lol! It's better than the alternative, which I've done plenty of times. It's been a rough week, too, and I honestly expected to have gained, so I am satisfied with this success, albeit a tiny one.
A little over a week ago, found what I thought was a zit (yeah, a 50-year old battling zits! Whodathunkit?) It turned out to be a cyst which became infected, and that caused cellulitis in just a few short days. Darned weekends, when you can't call the doctor's office and think a zit is no cause for real alarm...to make a long story short, it can be! Now I am fighting what could be a serious infection, and it makes me feel lousy, plus the site is tender.
I suppose I could say it's a good thing that it robs my appetite. The problem is, it also makes me want lousy foods when I do want something. Of all odd things, I craved breakfast cereal! *giggle* I did manage to eat some oatmeal instead. I am keeping up my calories. Not always in the healthiest way, but I'm trying most of the time.
All of this said, it's all just a little bump in the road. I have faith that it will be over soon, that I will feel better, and things will be back to normal. Wish me luck!
