Being Sick is a Terrible Diet

Monday, November 12, 2012

Last week, my daughter and I were both sick. She had pneumonia and I had bronchitis. The end result is that neither of us felt like eating much. I didn't have the biggest appetite and in fact probably didn't eat for most of two or three days. Since Saturday night, I've eaten more but not nearly enough. I just don't feel like it.

The end result is that since Thursday's weigh in at the doctor's office, I've lost four pounds. This makes me happy and not happy at the same time. I'm kind of happy that I've officially lost 40 pounds. On the other hand, who wants to lose weight because they're too sick to eat? Not me. I would rather lose weight and feel good AND eat! As I get back into the swing of things, my appetite will increase and I'll gain a pound or two back. But man, being sick is a terrible diet.

    I'm sorry you've been sick! So far in this pursuit of health & weight loss, I haven't had that challenge. Hope you and your daughter both fully recover quickly, and that your journey isn't impeded by this brief detour.

    Being too sick to eat is not a good way to lose weight. I was sick for several weeks with a gastrointestinal virus and lost my first 15 pounds. No, it was not the best way to lose weight on purpose but, in my case, it worked.

    After that I made the decision to lose the rest of the weight gained over the past several years. I reasoned that I had a good start and wanted to continue on my journey. That was when I joined Spark People decided that with dedication I COULD do it. Slowly and surely I am doing it. Feel better than I ever have.

    Being sick IS a terrible diet. Try to take care of yourself and eat chicken soup. It really does cure what ails you. Feel better!
