Second post today, maybe third if you count the one I posted at 11pm last night, but I had to come and let you know that I think I have really turned a corner with getting over my sickness. I walked the pup over a mile today, it is sunny and warm, I came home and continued eating on plan, and this afternoon I actually feel *really good*! The hives have suddenly started to fade and for the first time in weeks I do not have big bumpy itchy blistering spots on my hands (hey, maybe Reece's Eggs are the cure for hives??). I just have very faint pink spots now, and they hardly itch at all. My headache from this morning is gone, and so is the "yucky smell" I have been worried about for the past few days (which I think some of you who said it was the smell of the sinus infection were correct). I have another week of two antibiotics and I am very hopeful now that I am on the mend. Finally!
I am in so much better spirits today, thanks to the support I found here, the improvement in my health, and the nice weather. I have stayed on plan 100% so far today. I have not struggled with my eating today. And for that I am thankful. I can sense my body wanting to *move* more, to get things done around the house, to be outside. I like that feeling. I missed it. I need to get on the scale tomorrow and see where I'm at. I was at 189 a couple days ago, 191 a few days before that, 185 on the first of the month. The drugs I am on are affecting the scale numbers as well, but I like to be aware anyway.
Now I am off to take my girl to dance!
