Sick + Not Eating = Weight Loss
I got on the scale this morning and the 4 lbs I gained over the holidays are gone. Typical water retention for me. I am feeling slightly human again. Slept all day yesterday and a good part of today (after I attempted to work this morning). I have had NO appetite the past 2 days which is very rare for me. I drink my water and take my liquid cold meds. That's it. But I have been drinking well over 100 oz of water all week, so that is good. I did make myself eat a tiny bowl of chili last night just to have some sort of nutrition on board. Today, same thing. No appetite. I ordered pizza for the boys at 7:30 tonight and attempted to eat. I got 2 boneless wings in and then I was done. No complaints however. I don't mind feeling the no hunger aspect, but the no breathing part of being sick is irritating the crap out of me. Literally. One piece of advice for you when you have basically been consuming nothing but water for the past 36 hrs....never trust a fart. And I will leave tonight's blog entry at that. Goodnight!!
