Back in the land of the living

Thanks for all your support - I'm calling my surgeon today!

But boy, that bug SUCKED. We got hit h.a.r.d. DH slept for 16 hours straight yesterday! Thankfully, my mom came to help, or we would have been in a world of hurt, as we were both too weak to even pick up the kids. Poor DD still isn't really eating, but she seems to be feeling a bit better. I'm back at work today.

The good news is the nastiness helped me lose another 3.8 lbs this week, bringing my grand total to 39.8 lbs. My stretch goal was to be at 50 lbs lost by my first fill, but I think I'll have to revise that to 45, since it's in less than two weeks. I knew 50 was a stretch, and I'm ok with not hitting it. I like stretch goals. Either way, I'm thrilled with how well I've done. Seriously, I'm already 20% of the way to my goal!

Since we both have small families, our holiday celebrations are minimal, meaning I don't have too many food mines to avoid these next few days. Thankfully!

Today is my last day of work until January 4th. No complaints here. And off to work I must go (well, I'm actually here, but I must get to work.) Toodles!


  1. ? congratulations on the weight loss (the ? because ugh, what a way to lose it!!)

    Seriously-- great news on that and keep going!! I am happy for you that you will not be back at work until the new year.
    Happy Holidays!!

  2. Oh your poor girl - what a way to lose the weight - good in the end but sucks during.
    Have a beautiful beautiful Christmas day. We are having ours today - Christmas Eve. Presents open at 4pm and dinner at five - Mason had to work until four.. which sucked but hey, it's work!
