Week 3 Weigh In~The only thing I lost this week...was my voice!

I was up +1.2 lbs, which is okay. I knew I wasn't very "good" last week, and after having had two great weeks, I'm just happy to have kept exactly 10 lbs off from my starting weight.

My husband found my old WW materials, (from about 7 years ago), in the garage yesterday! Yay! I had a "Complete Food Guide", a "Dining Out Companion", and a 3 month journal in it. The food guide should still be pretty current, the dining out book might need to be replaced, since restaurants frequently change their menus, but the thing I was really excited about is the journal. They have changed the style of these recently, and I much prefer the old style journal. I only used it for the first 3 weeks, so I will start writing down everything I eat this week in it, and hopefully that will show on the scale in a week.

Now, the losing the voice thing...
Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! It is so maddening! Silence is NOT golden when you are the one who is forced to be silent. I don't think I've ever had laryngitis this bad, I can't really get any sound out at all. I had to whisper to the WW lady, and then to the cashier at Pamida, where I stopped to pick up some throat lozenges.
Ray never listens to me when I CAN talk, so it's really frustrating to try to tell him something when I can't talk! I hope this thing goes away soon, I would really like to be able to sing Friday for Karaoke night at church. Say a little prayer for me if you think about it.

I talked (whispered) to my sweet grandson CJ on the phone again today. He said, "Gammra, you still got a frog in your throat? I whispered, "Yes." He then told me I should get some "Edison". That's how he says medicine, and has always called his vitamins "Edison". I then gave the phone to Molly, it was just too hard to communicate over the phone by whispering.
I had to text msg my dh today, which I never do, because I knew he wouldn't hear me if I called him. I may be blogging a lot in the next few days, it's a good way for me to vent silently. Please bear with me.
