Weigh In Monday

I am down to 188.2. I finally got below that 189 mark where you just know that at any time you can go right back to the 190s.

I can't even believe I lost any weight though. It's been a very, challenging week. I failed to leave sugar out of my diet, I failed to keep up with my workouts, and I failed to start my bible study. I did however, stop eating food at school.

Why was the week so hard? My daughter was hospitalized for 2 days, 1 night. From Tuesday to Wednesday. She has been so sick and been in and out of the doctor and not receiving any help. She had a high fever for 24 hours, diarrhea for 12 days, and what tipped us off was she began throwing up Tuesday morning. They couldn't find anything wrong with her other than being severely dehydrated because of all the diarrhea. They ran urine tests, blood tests, and a nasal swab test and all tests came back clear of any sickness. They did a stool sample test but, we haven't heard back on the results of that. Hopefully something will show up because she STILL has diarrhea, it has been 19 days! She has had a runny nose for over a month now. I don't think the 2 are related but, still! So, yeah, I stayed at the hospital with her so eating food without any kind of sugar was near impossible when the food I depended on was either hospital food or food brought in by family. It actually wasn't too bad. The day after we got home, I weighed myself to see what kind of damage had been done and that is when I was greeted by 188.2 on the scale. I have been exhausted since then. I haven't been to the gym because of my exhaustion. For the 4th of July I had some sugar. I didn't over eat or anything though and with the exception of a couple of sugary treats, I ate fairly well.

This was the first week I did not beat myself over having a bad week. I am glad I lost, most definitely. I know the reason I am not hard on myself is because much of it was completely out of my control. I had to put my family first and just get us through the week.

This next week I am hoping to get my life back in order. Get to the gym and give the week of no sugar another go.

My first 5K race is this Saturday. So excited to run it and post about it!

Oh and in case you were wondering, Lily is ok now aside from the 19 days of diarrhea.


  1. I'm glad that Lily's doing better & I certainly hope that they come up with some answers soon so the little darling doesn't have to go through it again if it can be helped!!!

  2. Glad to hear your kiddo is doing better!

    I wanted to let you know that I am a friend of Kelly S's. We grew up together and have kept in touch for a long time. I'll be out to Washington to see her and meet Baby Ryan for the first time at the end of September.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about Lily. :( Has she been on antibiotics at all recently? I've been on penicillin twice that was so strong it wiped out ALL the bacteria in my system, including the "good" stuff, resulting in 6 weeks of diarrhea. Just a thought...

    Congrats on the loss - considering the stress you've been under, you did great! I hope Lily's feeling 100% ASAP.

  4. Yes, she was on antibiotics about a month ago. It is possible her diarrhea issues are from that but, the her pediatrician thought it might be another stomach issue. We are waiting on results from a stool sample to hopefully find out what the deal is.

    Thank you ladies for all the positive words and support!
