Well looks like I'm now down 15lbs since Thanksgiving. I had signed up for this Maintain Don't Gain challenge at work where you didn't tried to lose, but tried to stay at your weight. The Monday after Thanksgiving I started feeling pretty crummy and left work early. Sick for a week. Well, what ever I had I didn't have much appetite for a few weeks after. I knew I had probably lost a little because of being sick, but thought Christmas would have gained it back.
At weigh in on Jan 3rd I'd lost 7lbs. So I decided I'd at least try to watch my calorie count, and horseback ride as much as possible. At that point I logged into SparkPeople after a period of absence so I could count calories. I got the flu and didn't lose any weight but it through a bit of a curve ball in there. Anyway, now I'm down just over 7lbs. 174.3 and now 159.8. Close enough for me to count as 15. I never would have thought getting sick would actually encourage me to lose weight. But there it is.
