A Day on The Couch

Still sick today. This morning I woke up and everything hurt, my head, my throat, my sinus's and my muscles. i am home for the day. I took some mucinex D and drinking lots water. The doctor yesterday said I have a URI (upper respiratory infection). I never thought a URI could take you out like this. It sucks.

This morning I woke up and went to the bathroom and saw the scale and even though I was up 2lbs yesterday stepped on the scale. To my huge surprise I was down 4.4lbs from yesterday. Putting me at a new low! 302.6!! I am so close to being under 300lbs now I can taste it. I can't wait to see 299lbs that will be a great day to celebrate.
My band is tight today again. Yesterday I tried eating boiled eggs (haven't had any issues up till now) they came back up into the toilet.  It's crazy how being sick affects my band. I am trying to stick to mushies and protein shakes today. We will see how that goes.

I am going to relax and watch I Dream of Jeannie and drink lots of water. I am so thankful for my weight loss! It's like the scale gods said hey she's not feeling well lets give something to smile about!
I hope you all have a great scale day and otherwise. :)


  1. yuck. Im sorry you arent feeling well. My sister is gettin over bronchitis (however you spell it), and it is just totally wiping her out.

    But if you are going to be sick, then weight loss associated with it is nice! lol

  2. I can't imagine how bad it is being sick now that we're banded. Be strong! I hope you feel better tomorrow, ladybug. Love you!

  3. Nice loss but I wish you weren't sick...feel better.

  4. I agree with what you said... it's true I don't know what someone might get out of my blog who's reading but NOT commenting. I'm just deleting blogs I follow. :( It makes me sad that I felt like I had to do that, but its like, "Really? I'm commenting on pretty much everything you post, yet you can't even be bothered to check out my blog once?" I have abandonment/self-worth issues, I didn't figure my post would even make sense to anyone else. LOL

  5. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!
