weigh in and news I didn't want to get

My weigh in for today is I am down -4.5 pounds!! That brings me to 201! So close to onderland I can taste it. Even though I felt I was eating too much on Saturday and Sunday I came down with some stomach bug on Monday and am losing weight rapidly!! I'm afraid it is mostly water weight as I can't keep much down so we'll see if I can keep it off next week. I still haven't kicked this bug and don't know know how to. I guess I just have to wait it out. It's been a long time since I've felt this ill and weak. I wouldn't want anyone to have to lose weight this way. I'm afraid it's not fat loss but muscle and water loss as I'm feeling lethargic.

I have been trouble getting all the things I need to do...done. I got my son off to his first day of school but found myself sweating while we were in his classroom. Think I have a fever, it sucks! So, I only got in 2 days of exercise and that was just walking. I hope to get well soon so I can resume my workouts.

I also got the bad news that I knew would be coming that my friend Dawn had passed away yesterday. I knew it was coming but I guess I didn't think it would be so soon. But, she didn't look good when I saw her last week. I am just thankful that I had a lot of time with her this year and I hope she is at peace now. I believe that she is, and that she is with her mother and sister who passed away before her.

That's all I got today. Check out my post from yesterday about vegas and the room and things. I need to go lay down....ick. Hope you all are doing well.

A big hug to you Patty - Dawn would have enjoyed having you near her before she passed away, and I'm certain that would have helped her have peace in her final moments. {{{HUGZ}}}

Oh sweetheart, i'm so sorry. Every time you've updated this week I have worried that this would be the news we all didn't want to hear.
I'm sure Dawn is at peace now and the pain has gone for her. She will be your guardian angel and look after YOU now too. Big hugs honey,

Wow, honey, I'm so sorry about your friend. It is wonderful that you got to spend so much time with her and even talk to her recently. Even from here it all seemed to happen to quickly so I can only imagine how you feel. I am sending hugs your way and thinking about her family.
Hope you start feeling better from your stomach bug!

It is tough to lose weight from sickness. I never do.

Hope you get better. Condolences for the loss of Dawn. You are true friends forever.
