Awww - thanks.:-)

Thank you for all of your kind "get well" wishes.:-) I'm finally on the mend. After mucho convincing by my family, I made my way to the doctor yesterday. Turns out I have a very nasty throat infection, which can only be abolished by a heavy dose of antibiotics. Good stuff.

So, while my raging fever is gone - I'm still achy, tired, and weak. But I'm so much better than yesterday, and it's finally nice to be feeling semi-human again.

Am I the only one who gets a kick out of weighing in during sickness? I love the wacky low numbers. False boost of confidence (seeing as I was sweating like I had run 3 marathons yesterday), but still.:-)

I think I still have a loss* of 2lbs to report for this week! I am down 5lb altogether over the week, which is just crazy. If I assume that I'll gain 3lbs back (which is reasonable), I'll still be down about two. Now, nothing is certain until next week's weigh-in - but it's all so encouraging. Know what this means?

I've had two consecutive losses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hallelujah! It has been months since I have been able to say that.

Here's working towards week number three. Which will hopefully leave me fever-free, and an extra 2lbs lighter.;-)

*I'm not updating my ticker until next week, when it's official. It feels weird trying to guess exactly how much weight I'll gain back after my infection goes away.

SO happy you are feeling better - being sick is hard enough, let alone having to be a mom while you are sick!

And an early congrats on your to be confirmed (but I have a good feeling about it) 2 lb loss. Two losses in a row is HUGE - a losing streak is right around the corner.

I'm one of those people that gains during ANY sickness - seriously - the week I had my wisdom teeth out I gained 4lbs!! The worse I feel, generally the more I eat! What a freak I am!

glad you're on your way to mending....
