100 lb. Club - Stupid Cold!

View Full Version : Stupid Cold!

I've had a cold since Wednesday evening. Sore throat, dizziness, headache, all in all it sucks. Problem is I've been craving comfort foods. I've done well to avoid or modify them, such as a grilled cheese cooked with I can't believe it's not butter light, some soup, tea and coffee (black). But I'm really wanting a bowl of ice cream for dinner. I'm afraid this is going to trigger wanting more junk food, but I feel so crappy and ice cream would feel so good on my throat (the greek yogurt burns a bit).

Get well soon!

I actually have the same symptoms but figured it is TOM. Hm...

feel better, too.

Right there with you. We're basically subsisting on soup at the moment, and yes, some (no sugar added) ice cream.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, and feel better soon!

I just went through the same thing. I had a little ice cream but I found that sucking on crushed ice really made my throat feel better and help me resist the ice cream.

Feel better soon!

thanks for the ideas ladies. I have some ice chips, some tea, and a vanilla pudding here. The ice chips help a lot.
