i’m slowly rehydrating
Beginning Tuesday afternoon (and it is right now Thursday morning), I started feeling yucky. Reeeeally yucky. Made a couple of yucky visits to the bathroom (you know, the kind where the fan stays on looong after the visit is over). ‘Bout every 2 hours throughout the night had to get up to go, and puke, usually 2 or 3 times per wake-up. Yuck.
I weigh myself every morning. It’s how I keep tabs on how much I’m stuffing in my face. I normally weigh about 128ish for my first weigh. Tuesday morning I weighed 129. Wednesday morning (after all of the yuckiness) I weighed 124. Yep. Lost 5 lbs of water weight in all of that yuckiness. Doesn’t surprise me… there was A LOT of yuckiness.
Today I am slowly starting to rehydrate. I had to start drinking water even though it made my stomach feel a little sick. I knew if I didn’t, I was on the verge of having to be IV rehydrated. Seriously, I have never felt so completely parched in my entire life. After tiny bits of water throughout the night, I don’t feel “sick” anymore. Just really weak. Weight dropped again to 123.5 lbs. I have to eat & drink & recover today. Which means, not doing as much as I feel capable of.
Too bad I can’t feel this weightless when I’m fully hydrated and fed! Seriously though, it is not worth it. I’d much rather weigh a little more and not feel like death. Yep. Definitely.
This was, by far, the WORST stomach virus I have EVER had.
