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.
