Good News, Bad News

Bad news first... I have the flu. It started as a sore throat this weekend and has turned into total body achy-ness, headache, congestion, runny nose, low grade fever, and fatigue. Monday I worked a half day and I stayed home all day Tuesday. I haven't decided if I'm going in to work today or not. I may take one more day just to make sure I am on the mend. Poor hubby is getting sick too. =(

Good news: I seem to be loosing a little over 0.5 pounds a day. Yesterday I lost 0.8 pounds from the previous day and today I lost 0.6 pounds. I think 0.6 pounds is great for a day of staying home sick and doing nothing! I know this loss is mostly due to my new candida diet. The only carbs I've been eating are in root veggies (which have more fiber anyway) and barley (also high in fiber). I still feel like I am fighting off yeast infections but it does feel a little more in control than it has in the last few months. I keep taking acidophilus and yesterday I had a little yogurt. I am hoping that I can start to add in a few more carbs in about a month. I guess we'll see. I am excited about the weight loss though. =)

I am sorry to hear that you are getting sick. EVERYONE in my office is sick. I am praying I don't get it but as I write this I feel the beginings of a headache coming on.

Congrat's on the weight loss. That is fantastic. Good luck!

Great to to hear the weight loss news. Sorry to hear the sick news. My hubby has been unsuccessfully battling a head and chest cold, flu thing since Saturday. I am really hoping I don't get it. I hope you feel better soon.
