The Silver Lining

With a little help from my friend Stomach Virus I've finally reached my goal weight.

Way to have a glass-half-full attitude. Hopefully this weight loss will be permanent. When I got sick last Dec. I dipped under 125 and have stayed there ever since. I don't think enough people tout the weight loss benefits of the stomach flu. Thanks for enlightening us once again. Get well.

Hope you're feeling better today and that no one else gets it. :)

Mrs Furious said...

I'm hoping I can keep it here now... a little jump start if you know what I mean ;)
I think as long as I keep my exercise up and don't eat like a wild hog I'm good to go.

"and that no one else gets it."
you know that's a mothers worst fear

michelline said...

Well... Congrats, LOL. I'm sorry you had to be sick, but at least something good did come of it.

eurydice said...

hahaha, that reminds me of the movie "the devil wears prada"

Emily: Andrea, my God! You look so chic.

Andy Sachs: Oh, thanks. You look so thin.

Emily: Really? It's for Paris, I'm on this new diet. Well, I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint I eat a cube of cheese. I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.

"and that no one else gets it."

I usually hope my kids won't get it, but that my husband does...only because he never sympathizes with my pain. Of course, he always thinks he is "sicker" than everyone else...and is a big baby.

I'm glad you are better, I was seriously worried. Laying on the bathroom floor is never a good thing.

Torey said...

Haha. . .we're all dying over here of some illness or another.

Nathaniel had the stomach bug last night, Isaac has a cold and well. . .some nasty diapers, and I'm dying of being pregnant ; ) Only 33 more weeks to go.

And FYI, yup, the horrible pregnancy disease is way worse the second time around. I'm not sure we'll all survive!

Hope you're doing better. I'm praying that I don't get the flu thing, since I had it with Isaac and ended up hospitalized. Nathaniel NEVER gets as sick as I do. EVER. Bastard.

Mrs Furious said...


Congratulations! I'm weirdly jealous....

Torey said...

You're jealous now, because you're no longer sick!

Thanks though, we're really excited! I thought you had me figured out when we visited. You were looking at me all strange. . .

Off to remind myself why we wanted another one. . .

Mrs Furious said...

You know what is funny is that I did think you looked different but I couldn't figure out how... now I know!

It'll be great. Having 2 is the best decision we ever made :)

Mrs Furious said...

Oh that's funny... I haven't seen it.
Last night while lying on the floor I was thinking "is it wrong that I want to test my body fat right now?" ;)

I of course always wish it upon Mr F too... but then I have to deal with his over the top baby reaction and I'm not sure which is worse.

You know me... forever the Pollyanna ;)

Andrea said...

glad to see you back up and going, the whole thing with Mr.F is so funny and if hes anything like my husband he thinks hes on deaths door with a head cold or such.

Mrs Furious said...

oh Andrea,
I believe Mr F has been known to say something like "Yeah but I really don't like throwing up" as if I actually fucking enjoy it... like it couldn't possibly be as bad for me. Men. They really do have some kind of disorder when it comes to illness.

Mr Furious said...

You really need to talk to your wardrobe person—they should never have you in the same color for consecutive shoots.

Mrs Furious said...

Mr F
yeah yeah... at least it's clean

hey check THIS OUT... Kid would love it... plus it's in Lancaster County (watch out for the Amish)

Torey said...

I would like to share with you, that while trying to convince myself that I WILL survive this pregnancy, and Gup will LOVE to have a little sibling, and i AM a fabulous parent, he ate a few squirts of butt cleaner off of the changing table.

Two isn't THAT much more work, right?

AshinMT said...

Mrs F,
Hope your feeling better. I understand your pain (not literally) but with the mr. f downplaying your illness thing. Do men do that on purpose? Its a number of things in the same category that get my blood boiling. Like the "eohh... dinner isnt until 6:30?..." that I hear from my boyfriend when he wasnt supposed to be home until seven anyways, and cant even muster up enough energy to grade the cheese for the taco soup.... Makes me want to shittin kill him.
Sorry venting.... ha!
Hope your better soon

Heather said...

Glad you're better! I laughed at the retelling of the conversation with Mr F = Pete's chief ADD symptom is he has absolutely no idea how to prioritize things when they come at him i.e. very sick wife needed him or Direct TV. It's stunning to watch at times. No offense Mr F!

Kiki said...

I'm so glad that you are feeling better....so scary to be that sick. Once I was throwing up as I was trying to take a shower and Ken came in and said, "Can't you stop that?" Uh yeah, we almost landed in divorce court for that one, luckily he got very caring when I sat on the floor of the shower in my own vomit. He realized how serious it was!!

That Baby, she is so gorgeous, its ridiculous!!!

Mrs Furious said...

don't ask me my girls age difference gave me an unfair advantage.

you're always free to vent away... God knows I do ;)

" Ken came in and said, "Can't you stop that?""

damn that ADD
