We have mutated a sickness until, in the end, my husband and I came down with pneumonia. We have been in bed drenched in sweat, shivering, coughing and sleeping. Three days into it we started antibiotics.
My stomach has been the center of nausea and discomfort. I’ve sustained myself on saltines and 7-up. My skin has been the outlet for the toxins to escape leaving my chin looking like we’ve been locked down in a meth-lab for the past eight days.
Nutrisystem has been calling me. I love the chocolate shakes and look forward to them each morning. Even this has been too much for my stomach.
It was weigh in and I dragged myself to the scale. Turns out that while a diet of saltines and 7-up keeps the stomach settled, it does outrageous things to a body’s weight. I gained 3.1 pounds.
Jake gets married in three weeks. Every obstacle has been thrown in my path since I hunkered down and committed to this weight loss. I’m on antibiotics for another nine days. I’m hoping my stomach surrenders and allows food to stay put. I’m determined to make this happen.
This set back will not conquer me. It will make me stronger!
