Still feeling yucky
I hate colds. I’m not doing so well. The cold itself isn’t so horrible. I mean it’s just an ordinary cold. But I am feeling way ‘off’. For one thing I’m hungry. I haven’t really felt hungry since I began Weight Watchers. I felt in control of my eating. I thought being sick made you lose your appetite, but not for me. Now I’m hungry, and I feel pitiful because I’m sick, so I want to eat good stuff like cake and chips and cookies. I hadn’t been cheating. Well not much, but I gained 1.6 pounds. I explained to Nick that my head weighed an extra 10 pounds so in reality I must have really lost. I don’t think he’s buying it but he knows I’m feeling bad so he hasn’t had much to say about it. I know it’s stupid but it silly little setbacks like this that seem to give me a reason to just give up on the weight loss idea. I’m tired, I don’t feel like exercising. I’m hungry and I want to eat junk. This is a terrible combination.
The news isn’t all bad. We haven’t seen Mollie in a few weeks and I get to see her today. I got to see my sister yesterday and she helped me work on a favorite project of mine. I know a cold can’t last forever and this one will have to let up eventually. And hopefully I have a husband who is not willing to let me give up on the weight loss just yet.
One other thing, Sunnygirl said she was hoping to put up a story on her site today. She has shared several stories with us for Fantasy Friday so I’m headed over there for another good read. There is also a new post over at Cassie’s today so if you’re looking for something to read here’s a couple of places you might want to try.
