gotten busy, gotten sick..and a serious HALT in weight loss.

Thursday, February 14, 2013


alright, it's been awhile. I'm trying to keep on track without every second being devoted to this website. lol

I'm not giving up. I'm done feeling sorry for myself. I'm going to keep going.


I haven't lost any weight in a month. and I'm sick of it. No matter how little or how much I do/eat, I can't loose anything, and if I do loose, I just bounce right back.

I got a coupon for Slimquick, so for the fun of it, I decided to buy it. That was 2 weeks ago. I do notice a increase in Energy, and not wanting to sit around and eat all day, but nothing on the weight loss front... not yet anyway.

After I started taking it I realised it was Caffiene in it that was giving me the energy, kinda defeats the whole no pop thing huh? lol But no, not drinking that either.

Saturday, Jake woke up with the flu. Couldn't hold anything down, was dry heaving every 20m and wasn't able to stay awake.. I'll save you the unnessasary long ER visit, but he was fine by sunday morning. Then levi got it sunday night, more of the same, he was better by monday morning. Then, tuesday night i started feeling sick after dinner.. I spent the night Vomiting every couple of hours, until wednesday morning, i felt better. Miranda came home sick yesterday, and she's home today from school, and Levi has had Diarreah since he was "better" monday morning.

UGH. all I could think was, Well, maybe I lost some weight. lol That's probably not the best thing to think when you are dog sick, but yeah. If Barfing after every meal wasn't so bad for your health, you could sign me up. lol

Good thing about the flu?

I got on the scale a little while ago, at noon, and it said 226.0 Which means I'm just a touch away from 225. I haven't been this low yet, now I'm trying to watch what I eat so I can keep it, because as you can tell, it will be awhile before I make it back to the gym. lol (last time I was there was friday)

I hope to get on the scale tomorrow morning and find 225 looking back at me.. and not the dreaded 227. ugh.

i hope to be loosing weight again. Maybe slimquick helped? probably the flu though.. nd running myself ragged trying to keep the kids alive. lol

Anyway, I also got a Ipad a couple weeks ago and getting on here and blogging from that is a pain in the butt, but know that I'm still alive and I'm still trying, no matter how tough it's been, I'm not giving up.

    that stuff sure runs it's course through a family,eh? Even if you do not lose after being sick, your body fights to maintain and holds calories to fight off germs. We are in the throes of it here,, Went to E.R Tuesday, again today.. the joys of winter!!!!!!!

    Tissues, wastebaskets, really soft TP and tea and jello,, anti-diarrheal tabs are essential..
    One thing that does help a little is once a day to , believe it or not, open all of your windows for about ten minutes to air the place out..
    remember you are all breathing that wonderful air trapped in your house,, and we all know what things happen when we have the flu..

    baby yourselves... praying you all feel better soon...
