I Sound Like I Have the Plague

Day 107

Nothing helps a diet along like a case of bronchitis. I have been coughing so much it is ridiculous. It feels like the good old days when women wasted away from “consumption” (TB). I’m almost used to it now as if it is a permanent state of being. There is an upside to this. Only I would think of an upside to Bronchitis! I haven’t been so hungry. I think it is due to the cough drops, cough syrup, antibiotics and decongestant pills that I am consuming every four hours or so. Kinda fills you up!

As I look back on all my entries I see a pattern of illness. Am I really sick that much?! Jeez! It’s a wonder I haven’t lost more weight. Either way, I have been happy to see that JC food has consistently been appealing even when I’m not feeling so well. The vegetables and salad combos, not so much. But Lasagna, soups, and turkey dinners have a comfort food thing going for them. Even when I am not feeling under the weather, I tend to stick to the same comfort foods (or at least they are comforting to me). I prefer the frozen entrees. They seem to be tastier than the dry goods. My favorites so far are the turkey and mashed potatoes, potstickers, any Italian entrée and the fajitas. My only complaint is that there needs to be more variety; something Nestle is promising now that they have taken over JC. The one new item I tried so far is the cashew chicken and it was HORRIBLE. I can’t even explain how bad. I remain hopeful for the other new entrees.
