Hopefully on the Mend

I woke up this morning feeling better so I thought I would wake up and eat some toast and maybe go to work. After I was standing for a while I felt nauseous again and after eating the toast I felt worse. So I’m home again. This time missing work AND school. But I think I’m on the mend. The nausea isn’t as debilitating as it was yesterday, but it gets a lot worse when I’m standing up.

I hopped on the scale this morning to see I was 1.4 lbs from my 50 lb goal! While I would LOVE for this to be true, I know I shouldn’t get used to it!

It’s amazing to me how my body can survive on 7 up and a couple pieces of toast for over 24 hours. How is that possible? It just shows me that I must eat a lot more than I would really need to when I am feeling well.

My Mom was showing her friend some pictures and I was in some of them and my Mom emailed me to tell me what her friend said, which made me feel so good! She said, “Be sure to tell her that she looked fabulous to me on your digital camera.  I am so proud of her.  Tell her I could use a few tricks on keeping true to myself on eating healthier too. Impressive!”

What a compliment!!
