But this stomach thing was so fierce that I am a little afraid every time I eat -- not a bad thing! I have been eating less than usual the past few days (although maybe more calories yesterday as I tried to find things that were "good" and didn't irritate my stomach -- but volume has been less). I still feel a little nauseous all the time...and some things (my usual decaf for example) exacerbates things.
I am thrilled, however, to be wearing a pair of pants comfortably today that I have never been able to wear since I bought them late last year in anticipation of losing. And I think I look good. People are starting to notice a little bit and that helps me stay strong too. :-) I'm starting to remember how I felt when I was thinner...and it's GOOD.
So now I'm thinking about just how much I'd like to lose in total. I am sure I do not want to be as skinny as I ultimately got in late 1996-97 (photos are not flattering -- my niece, who was not born until January 1997, sees photos of me then and says I look "freaky" -- I think I look emaciated). Twenty pounds higher than my lowest weight would be really really nice and that's not too far away. More than a particular weight, I'd just like to be a solid 10 again (right now I'm a 12-14).
In the meantime, I'm just plugging away.
