the benefits of the flu

so i had to go run over to a friend's house tonight and put on something other than the robe i had been wearing during my round with the flu this weekend.

i was kind of wondering why my jeans felt loose and my bra was fitting oddly.

so when i got back i started to think about it.

on friday my scale said 166, which is where i've been for a couple of months.

just now it proclaimed that i am at 158 which is the lowest weight i've had since the summer of 2000.

well, not sleeping or eating for 4 days will do that to you i guess. and my abs hurt from all the coughing, so i guess that's good exercise.

but i can't feel proud of myself for it or anything.. it's not like i earned it by hard work.

i just lay around whining and being miserable and using up kleenex.

well that explains why the friend i went to see said i looked so much thinner than the last picture she had seen. see, the picture up on my page is from when i weighed in at a whopping 188 pounds. and the most recent one of me is the one in the black long sleeved shirt with my hands up... on the left there... at 166 a month ago.

wow.... 30 pounds difference from my main profile picture.

i'm still in shock. of course that could be from me not having slept since monday afternoon and that was kind of sketchy sick sleep.. lots of waking up to cough, so not really restful

Hey Catastrophegirl, I hope you are feeling better. I sent you three emails with the info that you requested. I know you received two. Let me know if you didn't receive the third. I will be interested in your views on the info. I realize that people can have differing views on the issue. I think the research is compelling but like all researchers say - more research needs to be done. (That is how researchers get their grants. lol ) I am not mentioning the topic because I don't want to introduce topics into your blog that you may not want discussed. But I do think it would be an interesting topic for your blog.

Take it EZ and get well soon.

For what it might be worth, this quiet voyeur has enjoyed every picture he has seen of you, from the 'arms up extra slim' to the 'whopping main profile pic'. Not that you don't hear enough from strangers that you are an attractive woman, but occasionally it can give you a warm fuzzy, and that what I hope this post does for you.
