50 for 30 - Week #9

Remember, last week, when I may or may not have had a melt down over losing 1.8 pounds when I felt like all my work deserve more. If you don't just scroll down. It's the post below here.

This week I have been sick. Sick as a dog sick. After my last episode, I decided to go to the doctor as soon as I started getting sick. The doctor checked me over again, and said, "I think it's pneumonia." I just looked at her, and calmly said, "Again, you THINK it's pneumonia!"

She believes because of my recent breathing/asthma issues a small cold blows up into something big. Now, I am going to a pulmonary doctor over the next two weeks to find out for sure and for certain if it's asthma and how to control it.

While at my doctor's visit, I did my weekly weigh in. Last week, I was shocked at how little I lost. This week I lost 2.8 pounds...ReAlLy?!? I ate poorly and didn't track my points on Weight Watchers because I felt so bad. 2.8! I couldn't believe it. I guess being sick must burn the calories, but honestly, I don't need to lose weight that bad. I'll just stick to eating right and exercising.

Week 8 - 2.8 pounds lost

Total weight loss 19 pounds! woohoo!


  1. Very good!  Sometimes not eating enough can cause you not to lose weight.  Maybe that's the reason.  Love you  #3s#1

  2. Steph, I lost almost 15 lbs between a Saturday night and Tuesday morning suffering from a horrible case of food poisoning. I was so sick and couldn’t keep anything down. Ryan forced me to eat broth and two crackers and drink a half gallon of Gatorade at one point. It was so bad I had to take antibiotics. ANTIBIOTICS FOR FOOD POISONING!! I always joke that losing weight via illness is awesome because you eat salty chicken noodle soup and crackers and sweet ginger ale and lay around all day watching Gone with the Wind and still lose weight. However!!! This does NOT apply to food poisoning!! I believe that was the closest to death I have ever felt. I hope you feel better and I hope the pulmonary doctor can help give some insight into your respiratory problems. I will pray for you. Nineteen pounds total lost is awesome!! Every pound you’ve lost I’ve gained!!
