#8 - Exhausted!

I really hate feeling tired all the time. I lost 65 pounds two years ago (and gained it all back last year!). When I was thinner I had SO much energy. Now I get tired doing little things. I've always gone to bed early, but lately I hit the sack aroung 8:30pm. I feel like a little kid with an early bedtime! Carting around an excess 140+ pounds is exhausting, and I end up sleeping a lot. I'm also getting over a major illness (I had meningitis) which is definitely playing a role in my tiredness, but the weight is also a huge (no pun intended) factor.

The past week has been pretty good. I worked out 4 times - yeah! - but I've gone over my points budget everyday and, of course, used up all my flex points. I figured I need an extra 35 flex points to break even - ouch! Anyway, I hope all my workouts help for weigh-in this morning! I lost 5 pounds last week, I just hope to lose something this week.

Lost 1.2 pounds. Good, but was hoping for more. It was sad, because Sat night I was sick, sitting on the toilet, thinking "why couldn't I have weighed in tomorrow". Isn't that SAD! Anyway, I was feeling better, then yesterday I decided to try some fake sausage (some soy thing). It was gross, wouldn't get it again. But a couple hours later, was feeling really weird, I couldn't catch my breath and my heart started really racing. I was a little worried, but kind of brushed it off. Then we decided to go see a movie, Brokeback Mountain, then it started happening again. After the movie I told my mom she should take me to the ER. I was freakin'. I just couldn't catch my breath, like asthma or something. Anyway longstory short, they think I had an allergic reaction to the soy product. Weird, huh? By last night I felt fine. They did a lot of tests, no heart problem, no asthma, blood tests ok. They said I seemed super healthy, so it must have been an allergy. Freaky!
