Want To Lose Weight After the Holidays?

I did, but not THIS bad! I came down with a nasty stomach virus in the middle of the night Thursday (we were in Louisiana with Adam's mom's side of the family), and needless to say, after throwing up 7 times in 8 hours, my Thanksgiving dinner was history! Ugh! I would rather be sick with pretty much anything except a stomach virus--I am such a baby when it comes to throwing up. I proceeded to run a 101 temp until today, and have been so doped up on finigren (thank you Lord for that stuff!) that I can barely remember the past 2 days. We woke my mom up early Friday (because who knows better than your own mom?) and she gave us tips on what to do. My sweet husband fed me ice chips every 30 minutes, woke me up for my medicine and put me back to bed. His mom went out and bought me a sippy cup so it wouldn't spill in the bed (and to just make me laugh, thanks Lynn), and I have to say, those things are awesome! Who says they are just for kids? Anyway, back to Adam...he had to pack us all up, load me into the car yesterday and drive us back from Louisiana, praying that I wouldn't get sick again in the car! Once again, my husband is my hero. I still have a fever and am just starting to eat, but since I had enough energy to type, I thought I would share my misery with everyone. Oh a happier note, the 2 days of holiday before that were wonderful...I'll post pics later when I feel better. Before I sign off, I must thank my mom, for her amazing advice from afar, Lynn, for being a good sport and giving me my first sippy cup as an adult, grandmother, for not being totally grossed out by me and providing all of my needs for the past 3 days, and Uncle Jimmy, for hooking me up with the blessing of finigren as soon as he was able. Now, I'm going back to my bed and sippy cup...
