TOTAL POUNDS LOST (Season 5): 34.9

Thursday, February 26, 2009

Alright. I'm laying it all out here. I have done nothing as far as losing weight and it's so frustrating!!! The last 3 weeks I have been sick with Bronchitis, a UTI, and now I'm waiting on results from my neck x-rays. I am a physical mess!!! I don't know what the Lord is trying to tell me. I'm not sure if I should push through it or lay down until it passes but neither one of those options are pleasant. I'm going to drop out of this round just because I'm needing to concentrate on getting better. My poor family is feeling the strain of it and I'm feeling the guilt from not being able to care for them. Thank heaven for my wonderful husband Aaron. I broke down and asked him to take over and he really stepped in for me. Love ya babe!!!

The most frustrating part about all of this is that I had just set my goals on this blog the day before all of my illness started. It's hard for me to stay motivated to eat well when I'm ill and only want comfort food. I've been eating my veggies fresh and steamed, but I've also been eating too many sweets. Anyway, I'm sorry to drop out but I will strive to reach my diet goals starting today!! My exercise goals will have to wait until I'm healthy again. I don't like to quit but I thank you all for understanding. I will get myself better so that I can be in the next round and say goodbye to my fat clothes!

Oh Liesl! I am so sorry that you are having such a hard time right now! I can definetely understand. And you are right, you do need to take it easy for now until you get it all figured out!
When you are ready to come back we will welcome you back with welcome arms! Please take care and get better soon!

Don't go away with any guilt either... there really is a time and season for EVERYTHING... even the being sick and not able to function completely. I have been there and it is very frustrating and miserable while you are "in it" but this too will pass. I admire all of you "younger" women... when I was raising my family I barely had time to keep a sane home (kids and husband happy, fed and clean) much less add some diet or exercise regimen. You are all an example to me. And I blew it this week after being the biggest loser for the 1st time.
