I just needed to post this somewhere and get some feedback. My husband isn't being very understanding and my mother is saying 'Wow! Great job!'
I have the stomach flu. My daughter picked it up at Sunday school, and then gave it to the rest of us. Unfortunately, while her problem was vomitting, that's not what everyone else in the family has gotten (
So, my goal for this month was to lose 5 pounds. I didn't want to be disappointed by not meeting my goal, so I decided to start low the first month. As you can see by my signature, I've gone well past my goal, and still have 3 weeks left. This isn't bragging - I have been taking in <600 calories a day for 3 days straight, taking care of three kids, nursing a hungry infant, taking care of the house, and suffering the very embarrassing symptoms of the stomach flu. Not only am I exhausted beyond belief, I've been dropping 2-3 pounds a day for the last 3 days.
I know this isn't healthy. I always lose weight when I'm sick. But...I'm kind of enjoying watching the number go down and in some sick way I hope it keeps up.
