To loose 10 ugly pounds quick…… Cut off your head….
I have no luck with the diet deals…. If I need to shed some pounds, I drink a sh#t load of water… And I mean a SH#T load…. I am 5.6 and I was 185 pounds, I went down to 150 then I was to thin so I went back up to 160. 160 is perfect for me… Im at like 168 right now… I think water for a few weeks will do the trick……. Works for me.

Happy to say I feel much better today. I agree about rest. If I can sleep a bunch, I can get on top of most things quicker. Apple Cider Vinegar in water to thin the mucus. Neti pot (I use one every day no matter what).
Thanks for the advice and ribbing guys. Helped a lot.

You're right! I do that too. If and when the dayquil loses to the symptoms, I crash. One day's usually all it takes. And the time-line is close too. I do try to putz around the house a bit and catch a peek at the sky.
I guess my point should be aimed at not doing what my girlfriend is wont to do: Sleep constantly through the run of the cold. And allow the symptoms to cause more issues by not forestalling them with drugs and zinc. She also has a slight deviated septum which may increase chances of infection. Last few colds, using the eucalyptus and otherwise keeping the congestion down and the juices flowing (except at night when we might even add an antihistamine to dry her up and keep crap out of the lungs) she's avoided sinus infections.

|Wynter||I have a 5ml bottle of Eucalyptus essential oil $5-ish that I keep in my pocket whenever i am getting a cold. It will last you forever. I waft it under my nose when I feel congested and it helps keep things moving. Breathe it in to a sinus infection and find cheap relief. For prevention, use that, Zicam (zinc), and dayquil/niquil constantly at the first sign of a cold. Our immune system, the lymphatic system, relies on hydration and movement to work effectively. You can cut days off a cold by NOT napping, crashing, or laying around.|
