begin again

This week was all about being sick, sick, sick.😷 I wish I was kidding but I was ungodly sick this entire week.

It started right after my weigh in for the previous week. My throat started to get scratchy. I tried to be preventive about it and take some home remedies. It just didn’t do anything for me. I got sick regardless.

I woke up Thursday with a sore throat and congestion in my nose. I had no clue what it was. I went to work and tried to keep taking some over the counter medicine. It got worse.

I skipped the gym all week because of this sickness. I called into work on Friday because I thought if I rest then maybe I would feel better.

I did for a brief second on Sunday, which was Mothers Day.

The whole week, I knew the gym was out. So I tried to stay on diet as closely as possible. We ate at a Brazilian steakhouse for Angela’s first Mothers Day. We had a great time. I was ok the whole time we were out.

As soon as we got back in the car to drive home, I became ill AGAIN!

From Sunday to Monday night, I was sick. All week, I took any over the counter medications that I could get my hands on.

By Tuesday, I started to feel better. Still taking medications into Wednesday morning, I was afraid that I may have a slight gain on the scale.

Stepped on the scale and lost 3.2 lbs. That loss meant that I was under 300 lbs again. My first goal was hit.

I’m super excited to actually see a 2 as the first number of my weight. I never want to see a 3 again. So, my first goal is hit. My next small goal is to get down to 200 lbs lost overall. That happens after I lose another 5.8 lbs.

I’m close!

Regardless of being sick, everything went well. I’m still a little sick as I’m writing this. But I’m getting better every day.

Next week is a new week with a new goal to unlock. Time to get back to work.

How is your weight loss journey going?
