Totals and Weigh In

17 Nov

So that nausea and weakness I felt Monday night?  It wasn’t low blood sugar, it was food poisoning or a stomach virus or some other horrible thing.  Soon after going to bed my tummy decided that everything must go, and so it did throughout the night.  I stayed home from work Tuesday and couldn’t eat or do much of anything – I held down 10 saltines, some spaghetti with Earth Balance and a few cups of Gatorade.  I went back to work Wednesday but still took it very easy eating-wise, as I wasn’t very hungry or sure what I could handle.  I was almost back to normal today.

First, here are my totals from last week.

Totals for 11/9/11 – 11/15/11

Daily points used:  193/203
Weekly points used:  128/49
Activity points earned:  21
Activity points used:  21
Points left on the table:  -69

The only, very small, tiny good part about getting sick is that I lost weight despite going way over my points.  I weighed in at 158.7, 1.7 pounds down from last week.  I was empty and dehydrated at that point, so I guess it wasn’t a surprise.  Perhaps  after I get back into the swing of things I’ll even out for a bit.  Even for someone who’s trying to lose weight, four pounds in two weeks seems like a bit much.  But yay, I’m in the 150’s!

    Food poisoning? Yikes! I hope you feel back to 100% soon. Congrats on the jump in weight loss, even if it was sickness-induced!
