The weight loss is not going well. I’m at a standstill.

I have a virus ….. and it’s making me feel exhausted and so I want to eat. I guess it’s no wonder I’m not losing any more weight. Doc says the virus symptoms can only be treated with Ibruprofen and then it’s a time thing. Could be 2-4 weeks before it’s gone. I’ve never heard of this particular virus before. It’s called Costochondritis, which I’ve Googled and found out it is a benign inflammation of the costal cartilage, a length of cartilage which connects each rib to the sternum. It causes pain in the chest that can be quite excruciating – and it is!!

Had a blood test this morning and now awaiting the outcome, which will really only confirm whether or not I have a virus – not specifically Costachondritis but a virus, which is not a huge help, particularly as the only treatment is Ibruprofen or just waiting for it to go!!

In the meantime, feeling weak and tired, I want to eat. Just need to ensure I eat the right things and not use this as an excuse to eat anything I might fancy! Shame!!!!!!
