Im Back!

Man I feel like Ive been away for a while.

To make a long story short, my boyfriend and I found out that we have mono again (yes apparently it is possible to get it more than once), and we have spent the weekend in bed recovering. He went to the dr on Friday for a test because he thought he had appendicitis, and it turns out it was mono! I went and got checked and yep, it explains why I have been exhausted for the past few weeks. So while not the "healthiest" weekend I could have had, it was nice to just lay around and do nothing. I still feel wiped out, but better.

I weighed in on Friday at 164.6 and was so thrilled the scale had moved! However I did not get any exercise in this weekend, and probably ate a few things that I shouldnt have. TOM started and that did not help matters either. We will see where I am at tomorrow for my weighin. I am not going to worry too much about it, it happens and I dont have many weekends like these.

Today it was a beautiful and I did get a walk in with my boyfriend so I guess I could count that as some exercise. It exhausted us both, but it was nice to go out and enjoy the weather. When I came back home today, I decided to go through my summer things because I really am wearing the same shirts over and over (because they are the only ones that fit). Well NOTHING fits from last year!! That is a great thing, but also bad because now I really dont have anything to wear. Its amazing to see things that were fitting me so loose and floating on my body, and other things that I had saved last summer thinking, ok when I lose weight I can fit in this, and now I come to find out what I had hoped to fit in is too big! Definitely a great NSV.

Awww sorry to hear about the mono. I hope you two are able to kick it quickly! I'm glad you were able to just relax and let your body rest this weekend. Everyone needs a bit of that!

And that is a huge NSV! Congratulations! I think that is the ultimate payoff.

Oh, sorry to hear you're sick. Mono is no fun (as you know!). Get lots of rest and I hope you feel better soon.

Yay for the too-big clothes!

Sorry to hear about the mono...I've never had it myself but I hear it sure wears you out. Hope you get over it soon. Congrats on the scale! It's always nice to get it moving again.
