Aww Screw It

Yesterday was my weigh-in day, but I also had a doctor's appointment early in the morning. All of you know that I've had a cold for basically three weeks now. On Monday that cold morphed into a sinus infection. The way I knew that is from the pain and pressure I felt above my right eyebrow and behind my right eye. I also felt like something was squeezing the top of my head. Tuesday it moved to my cheekbones. By Wednesday I couldn't take anymore. So I went to see the doctor at 7:45 yesterday morning. She prescribed a 10-day course of antibiotics, as well as nasal spray.

After all of the pain I've been through this week, I really don't care that I was up when I got on the scale last night. It's been a tough week and sweets were my friend in my time of need. Also, sinus pain and pressure isn't conducive to exercise. I plan to be back on track this week, so it's all good.

  1. Now lass, I'm going to say to you what I'd say to my own daughter. I told you over a week ago that you probably had developed a secondary bacterial infection and that you must go see s doctor. Forget about the weight and the diet for now. Eat what you need to when you need to and don't exercise until the infection is completely cleared up.
    Now that I've given you the what for I'll say this. I'm sending good thoughts and all my love to you. Toki sends prrrrs and a nose rub for Topaz.

  3. Aww so sorry friend. But you need to take care of your health first, then worry about the weight loss. It will come off - don't fret over another lost week. I remember when I was going to WW and would be sick - always showed on the scale. Hope you get over being miserable soon.

  4. Bet you weren't up much, gf. I have the old sinus infection too. Just behind the cheekbone this time. We'll curl up with Topaz and Admiral and call it a day.

  5. Sorry you've not been feeling well. It's so hard to exercise and eat right when you're under the weather. Glogirly has LOTS of experience with this!!!

    Hey, it's the last week of Searching For A Girl! Just a few more chapters left. We hope you can stop by!
