For The Record

I am feeling much better today.  I am still having some stomach problems, but I think the worst of it is over for now at least.

I did go to my writer’s group social event last night, and I had a lot of fun.  I felt like crap, but I tried not to show it.  I did just what I said I would do.  I went home and freshened up.  Put on clean clothes and curled my hair.  That went a long way to helping me feel better, but not quite the full 100%.  I had a good time socializing with all of my writer friends.  Then I went home and was sick with stomach problems until about 1:00 am.

I forced myself to down another protein shake and finish drinking the litre of water I had purchased.  I needed at least that much to make sure that I hit my minimum water requirement for the day, which goes a long way to clearing up my little problem.

I see the doctor again in a month, but I’m calling his office tomorrow to see if they have any suggestions for what is going on with me.  This is just getting out of control.  I cannot continue to have this problem all of the time.

Apart from that, I’m doing pretty good.  I did lose another 3 pounds, bringing my total lost up to 93 pounds.  I can hardly believe it.

I also found the inspiration for a new short story.  I started writing it today.  Hopefully, I can get it finished tonight and then spend the weekend polishing it up.  I might try to submit it to a one of the many contests I know about.  The deadline for several of them is March 31.  We shall see.

My secondary writer’s group was cancelled for tonight, so I am off to Trader Joe’s to pick up some supplies for the next few days.  Then I am going to turn in early.

  1. Do you remember that skit from SNL, Hans and Frans? “It is better to look good than to feel good.” I believe looking good helps make you feel good. I think you experienced a bit of that.

    On another note…maybe the fact that you’re not feeling well has distracted you from seeing how close you are to ONE-derland – the 100’s. Congrats and keep up the great work.

    Speaking of which, I miss you!

    • OMG Linda, I miss you too! I thought about you guys over there today. You’re right though, I’m so close to being in the 100s, someplace I have not been since I was 28. Holy cow!

  2. Don’t you just love Trader Joes! Hope your stomach problem clears up soon. Keep up the awesome work 🙂

  3. So proud of you Colleen – you have had a hard road in a lot of ways, but your strength is showing thru loud and clear. Better days ahead for sure! Love ya, Aunt Cath

  4. 🙂 See, my four day late bitch slap worked!
