The Sickening...and WEIGH IN!

Let me tell you a story...It begins Easter Sunday at approx. 12:33am. I was attempting to sleep when I began to feel a little ill. I got up and went into the bathroom where I proceeded to stay until about 6am. Why you ask? Well, violent vomiting and constant liquid diarrhea. I'm talking one of those embarassing episodes where you just lie in the tub because you are so exhausted.

I ended up feeling like I could step away from the toilet at around 6 am, so we went ahead and took a trip to the emergency room. I got 2 bags of fluid, an Immodium and a shot of some so-so anti-nausea medicine. We were there for around 5 hours and I couldn't sleep a wink!!!! Ironically, there was a tv WITH cable in there but the freakin' sound didn't work! I watched 2 Easter movies with no sound on TCM and I had no clue what was going on, but hey. TV!!

I have been ill this entire week pretty much which stinks as my mom and Gene flew in on Wednesday. It's been a real bummer not being able to do anything with them on the week days. We did go to DC yesterday since I'm feeling almost back to normal--I will update about that later.

But right now, onto exciting news...uh, for me. Check this out:

I stepped on the scale this morning and I weighed 162.4!!! I've lost about 5 pounds since April 1st, which is good! My goal by the end of April is to at least be 159. That's only 3 more pounds, which I think is reasonable.

I know you are probably thinking that this is because of my illness last weekend. But I swear, I stepped on the scale on Tuesday morning after my vomiting had subsided, and I weighed only 1 pound less than I had before I got sick (which kind of made me mad considering all the stuff I expelled from my body..I know..I know). Plus, I have been eating since Thursday, so I'm confidant that this is a real-deal weight loss.

I am pleased with myself.


  1. Congrads on the weight lost. Also, I hope you feel better. It sucks spending Easter like that. Update me more. I hope you will be fine soon.



  2. Yay! good for you Sam. Was it just a nasty bug? I hope you're feeling better. I got an episode of that a few summers ago and I remember that vividly! You really feel like crap. Take care!
