Just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in…That’s exactly what happened with me and being sick.

I started the week feeling lethargic and sluggish, chalking it up to the after effects of being sick the previous week. I went to work, worked out and carried on as usual on Monday and Tuesday.

But by late afternoon or early evening Tuesday I felt like I was hit by a truck. My throat was extremely sore, every bone in my body was hurting, and I couldn’t speak. It was horrible. I came to the realization that this was the first time in years that I was this sick, and it is also the first time I hadn’t gone to get a flu shot.

Needless to say it has been an uneventful week, although there are two bench marks that I did eclipse. I have been at a neck size 21 for many years, but now I am proud to say that I am a size 18 collar.

My weight loss has increased by two more pounds, which brings the total to 140 pounds since I started Losing for Life. Thank you so much for all of your support and well wishes.
