I get that it's a great weight loss tool...


That is all.

Ugh feel better!!

02-03-2009, 12:24 AM
it's SUPPOSED to be a 2000 calorie day... I'm at about 900 and let's face it... none of that stayed down (or up for that matter.)

I'm going to try some toast and watermelon here in a bit... the watermelon stayed down in my son Phoenix earlier so I'm hopeful.

02-03-2009, 12:27 AM
Phoenix is a very cool name, btw.

Saltines, chicken broth, a little 7-up (not sprite and not diet) always seem to help me.

02-03-2009, 12:28 AM
awww, I hope you feel better.

02-03-2009, 12:29 AM
Ah, heck, CFMama --- not only are you sick, but so is your child? I HATE when that happens. Stay hydrated and rest as much as you can and get better fast!

(Hey, wait a minute --- are you sure this isn't one of those COMPUTER viruses??? :dizzy: )

02-03-2009, 12:30 AM
Sending get well vibes and happy thoughts your way, Tammy!

02-03-2009, 12:44 AM
I hope you feel better soon.

02-03-2009, 01:01 AM
Feel better! you'll be well and 5lbs lighter in no time! :D

02-03-2009, 01:12 AM
Oh it gets better! My two daycare babies came and THEY WERE THROWING UP!!!! My son threw up all night, my hubby now feels uber queasy. My oldest daughter Madeline is farting up a blue streak and my youngest daughter Olivia's "tummy hurts"

Please. Shot me.

and then shoot me again for being overly dramatic. ;)

On the upside the sprouted grain toast with natural pb and jam was a WELCOME tummy addition and it was comfort food at it's finest... AND it's stayed down *so far*

you cheered me up friends :)

ps. I'm hoping it's not a computer virus ;) lol!

02-03-2009, 01:14 AM
I hope you and your family feel better soon!

02-03-2009, 03:17 AM
so my menu plan is done for tomorrow: toast, banana's, more toast, scrambled eggs, toast, banana's... and toast. Did I mention toast? Now's not the time to worry about macro's me thinks. It's a 1500 calorie day but somehow I'm not thinking it will be close to that ;)

02-03-2009, 03:36 AM
Oh no - I hope your hubby isn't getting the man flu!! we all know thats way worse than the flu we ever get!!

02-03-2009, 03:45 AM
AGAIN... What the heck, poor you! :( :hug: Did you get a flu shot? They are free here!, I'm glad I got one :D

02-03-2009, 03:53 AM
None of the strains of the flu that our flu show covered actually MADE IT here. So those who got the flu shot got it all for naught.

This appears to be some sort of nasty rotavirus. Blerk.

Ugh. I've been nauseous for the past two weeks. D:
Puked a few times in between. But my parents won't let me miss school, because I've missed too much.
So instead I am going to starve on Monday, and then get blood work done.
Yayyy for my spidery veins and the fact they will stick me 459350352 times before they get anything.

02-03-2009, 08:39 AM
So sorry to hear that you've been sick. Hope you and your family...and the childcare babies!...get better quickly.

02-03-2009, 08:51 AM
I didn't know childcare places would take kids when they were sick. I guess different places do different things. But MAN you have too much to do while you yourself are sick.

So here is a TOAST (wink wink nudge nudge) to you, CFMama --- and I really hope this is a 24-hour wonder for all of you guys. Make sure you take of YOU today too, kiddo!

(Hey Katie Marie --- good luck with the blood work. Maybe you will get a junior Dracula that hits the vein the first time!)

Hope everyone gets feeling better really soon!

02-03-2009, 10:17 AM
Poor girl! :( Feel better soon.

02-03-2009, 10:29 AM
I hope you feel better soon girlie...I'm just getting over the flu but "luckily" I got it after went through my DH first. I hate it when he gets sick after me lol My kids had the flu shot this year and they didn't get it.

02-03-2009, 11:23 AM
Feel better soon!

02-03-2009, 11:27 AM
Ugh! Sorry to hear your not feeling well...get some rest! Hope you feel better soon!

02-03-2009, 12:09 PM
Fell better! I feel you pain Sistah!! :hug:


02-03-2009, 12:11 PM
erg. I'm not feeling any better this morning. Daycare babies are staying home (I only let them come because we all had the same thing and their parents were kinda stuck) hubby is staying home and I'm planning on resting and eating toast.

On the UPSIDE. Weight was 301.8 this morning and that was WITH staying very hydrated. Goddess bless the flu. ;)

Feel better soon, that's so not fair!

The flu shots never cover stomach flu, because stomach flu isn't actually flu, it just gets called that.

I hope you feel better soon and way to go on the weight loss!
