How Do I Participate:

1. Write a Blog Post. Somewhere in it you MUST post the 'Weekly Weigh-In' Button and your weight loss or gain (a picture is recommend, but NOT required). You do not need to post your actual weight, though it may be helpful for you.
2. Link up using the McLinky below (Please link to your actual Weekly Weigh-In post, NOT your main blog page)
3. Become a follower of My Little Apricot with GFC! 
4. Visit other blogs on the linky and show your support. Congratulate them on their weight-loss and encourage them when they are struggling! Be sure to return the favor if someone visits/follows you.

Remember, you don't need to link up on Thursdays. The linky is open for the whole week!

**No nasty comments! This is a fun support group of women (and men) on a weight-loss journey! Any haters will be removed from the linky and will not be allowed to participate in the future!

I was preparing myself for a serious gain this week. I expected a gain. My cold last week turned out to be a severe allergic reaction... which led to an upper respiratory infection and ear infection. The doctor put me on a steady regiment of an inhaler, mucinex, antibiotics, saline drops, salt water gargle and ibuprofen. Needless to say, I've been busy trying to get better. I still have a lot of pressure in my ears, my throat is still sore and I still have a terrible cough and a hard time breathing. All of this plus the medications have been making me extremely hungry this week. So hungry that I need to either eat or cry. I chose eat. Not only that, but because the antibiotics neutralize birth control pills, I decided to switch my cycle this month. Which means extra cravings. Well lo-and-behold, I've lost a pound and a half. I guess I haven't been eating as much as I thought I have. haha.
