Scale Tale: The Viral Effect

Man, was I sick yesterday.

Not that I feel great today, but yesterday was horrible. During my grandniece's birthday party, I picked up the stomach bug that had afflicted my brother and his family. Result: Mucho diarrhea, nausea, headache, and very little eating.

Can we say GROSS?

The havoc shows on the scale:

What I weighed last weigh-in: 277
My weight the Monday after the party binge: 279.6

My weight today after the bug came to visit: 272.6

This is not the best way to make progress, though. I wouldn't recommend it. I had chills and my head still feels achey (but I dare not take anything for it).

I last ate at noon yesterday (which just came right out, if'n ya know what I mean). In a bit, I will attempt some breakfast and see if it'll stay put.

I figure I'm a little low on fluid, so once I rehydrate, that number's gonna bounce up. But, hey, the damage from the party has been negated by a nasty, little virus.

The Princess' pipes are REALLY clean!

Hope everyone has a great weigh-in for this week in the Look Great for 2008 Challenge.

A couple years ago when I was on WW, I had a very very sick week like this and dropped 12 pounds... It was hard to be happy about such a big loss when I felt so miserable though!

Would that be POOPKINS? hahaha

Thanks, Ladies. Today, my food seems to be staying put in my intestines. So, back to watching the calories.

haha yeah its sad to say that you lost weight from diarrhea, but on the other hand, its still a loss! just push the water so your body doesnt go crazy due to dehydration and you will be good.

Zanitta said...

wow, even if you were sick 7lbs is nuts! I reckon some of it is 'real' loss though, so I'm going to say congratulations anyway :)

I am so sorry. Being sick is really not a fun way to lose. Hope you feel better soon!
