I am sure you all noticed (actually probably no-one noticed) that I didn't weigh in last week. I had a good reason. I was out of town visiting my parents who live 8+ hour away. I had a nice 9 day vacation, gained about 1 lb, got sick as soon as I returned, and have been dealing with this ickness since.
My parents live on a lake in the upper part of Michigan. It is beautiful and tranquil and relaxing. My mom is a fantastic cook and baker and she insists on making many wonderful foods when we visit. She baked 3 pies, made homemade brats, and chicken pot pie. It was all tasty and I over indulged a few days but my sleeve really doesn't allow me to get too carried away. Honestly I expected my weight gain to be much worse when I got home but it was only about a pound.
I am suffering from some miserable cold now and I have been drinking my weight in orange juice daily. It isn't really helping the weight loss I am sure, but it makes me feel better and I am desperate to get back to healthy. Because of my sleeve procedure in January, I used all my sick time for the year. I have a small bit of vacation time left, but I want to use it for vacation and not for sickness so I have struggling through work. I finally feel semi human today. I am sure my co-workers love being around my hacking snotty self.
On the weight loss from, I have a family reunion coming up in August and I would like to lose another 10 lbs by then but that could be a stretch. I would like to at least get into the 170's, even if that means 179!
Look for my amazing (probably not) weigh in coming Friday. Happy Hump Day!
