Feeling Nauseous

I'm feeling quite nauseous today.  Seeing as my two boys and my husband were sick earlier this week it looks like it's my turn.  I'm caught in a state of wanting to eat because I'm hungry but feeling nauseous so I don't want to eat much and not eating much is making me feel even more nauseous. 

I just had some fat free yogurt with active cultures in the hopes that the cultures will do something to combat the 'bug' in my gut.  Not sure it will work but it's worth a try.  So far so good.  I took a peak in the cupboard to see what else would appeal to my stomach.  Low and behold I found a package of Ramen Noodles!  The last time I ate Ramen I was getting over a bad case of the flu.  That seemed to be the only thing that tasted good (because of the high sodium in the flavor packet I only used a scant amount for a little bit of flavor).  Would I recommend buying them? - nope! - but in my college days that was a cheap food and sometimes you just eat what tastes good to get anything down.  After checking out the nutrition info on Ramen Noodles one package contains two servings and one serving is worth five WW points.  If I feel desperate I may give it a try later on. To eat or not to eat that is the question?  What would you do?

There's another reason why I'm feeling nauseous today and that is over what happened to Lara Logan.  I couldn't believe what I was hearing when I listened to the news last night.  I'll spare you the details and let you read about it somewhere else online.  I'm outraged at how something like that could happen.  What is going on in a country where a women is assaulted in the streets during a 'celebration'?

Hoping the nauseous feelings go away soon and something can be learned from all this.  Lara my heart aches for what you went through.  Sending you prayers of healing and comfort.

7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery. I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward. Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is we

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

The Weight Loss High

'Weight loss high' is a term I use when I describe what it's like to lose weight.  It's a high I had experienced while in the midst losing all that weight.  It was a feeling of nothing getting in my way and almost being invincible.  When I lost the weight for the first year I didn't go to any groups or meetings.  I logged my food in a journal, counted my WW points and exercised.  Every Monday morning was like Christmas morning for me.  I couldn't wait to see what the number was on the scale.  I averaged 2lbs a week weight loss for many weeks. Fast forward to today: I've 'lost the weight' and I'm in maintenance mode or I should be.  I gained 10lbs and now I'm trying to lose them again!  Maintenance is hard because the weight loss 'high' is gone.  The 'high' during weight loss is a nice distraction and it feels great.  I kept thinking I wonder when I'll fit into the next size down in jeans? Without the distraction of th
