Bah. I hate being sick.It is no fun at all, I’m telling you.
On the bright side, the weight loss project continues to go well. I’ve lost sixteen pounds since I started two months ago. Unfortunately, I need to lose a good many more pounds than that.
Yes, these are the joys of spending years alternately eating too little on most days and then eating a decent amount on the weekends. You both starve yourself and gradually gain weight! However, now that I am actually paying attention to my daily calories — and keeping it above starvation level every day — instead of eating random food when it happens to occur to me, I find I am feeling a lot better as well as losing weight.
Well, yes, right now I don’t because I’m still fighting this gunk in my nose and the soreness in my throat. But when I get well again, I’ll feel better. 🙂

Aw, I hope you feel better, Maureen. I’m in Pennsylvania and it seems as if every other person I talk to has that sore throat thing. Even both my parents have it (glad I don’t live with them).
And let me give you a big cheer on your weight loss work. I worked very hard to take off 60 and like you said it really is about paying attention and taking care of yourself. I had to learn how to continue to take care of myself once the weight was off and I think that’s the hardest part.
I hope you feel better soon, and congratulations on the sixteen pounds.
Sorry to hear that you’re ill; I’ve had much the same problem but am recovering. I need to keep working on my doctoral thesis, though.
I was glad to see that you liked my comments on your earlier Dr Who post. (On the subject, I was pleased to see that “The Idiot’s Lantern” was much more traditional; it was also nice to see that Rose truly does believe that you should still love and honour your parents even if they don’t deserve it.)
