I'm having a terrible week, weight-wise!

I started out great, as you can see by the previous post, but from Wednesday morning, I started going up, up, up!

I am telling the truth when I say that the worst I did was eat lasagne at BP's on Wednesday (as reported).

I am sick this week - with a cold. I always seem to gain temporarily with a cold.

Today (Monday) I am on my way back down from as high as I'm at 207.4. Still up from Wednesday's weigh in, but on my way down from the upward trend of earlier this 'week'.
One thing the bigger numbers did for me was get me drinking my water. I got kind of mad that the numbers were going up for no apparent reason so I drank and drank and drank water. That could be why I started going down.

But, having a bad cough means that I do not want to physically extend myself (as in exercise) because I'll just start coughing. I hate coughing.

But....this week has not been all bad! In fact, only the numbers on the scale and the fact that I am coughing constantly have been bad......and that is because my Mr. Wonderful is home. Not just for a night or two, either. He is home for (probably) at least 6 weeks! Hooray!

Also, yesterday our whole family gathered at our house to say 'goodbye' to the 'little brother'. Our youngest, Danny, is leaving at the end of this week to attend school at YWAM in Lakeside, Montana for five months. We will all really miss him!

We have not all been together at one place since Christmas, so yesterday was a treat - in spite of my feeling rough and Jim being exhausted.

Pictures from yesterday are here.

Well, I'd better go and put my house back in order after having 20 odd people here all day.....the last of them left just a couple hours ago (my daughter & grandson stayed overnight since my SIL had to work nights last night).

Hopefully, the downward trend continues and I can at least report a maintanence on Wednesday!

I hope you get to feeling better soon! I bet that weight will peel right off quickly. :-) And I'm so happy your hubby is home for a few weeks, I know that does your heart good.
