Gaining Weight Being Sick?



Recommended Posts

I've been so sick all week with the flu, and have gained 2 lbs back of the 96 lbs I have lost! It's made me so depressed, I cried for a while last night. Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be Water weight, or simply lack of exercise while being confined to bed? Thoughts? Suggestions?

It's basically Water weight. It will come off really easy. I fluctuate by a couple pounds constantly and it always comes down. You are doing great and have a lot to go also. Get well! :)

I had the crud a few weeks ago and gained but it came off quickly after I was over it. Get better soon, I feel for you.

You have to remember there is a difference between weight gain and FAT gain. Did you gain fat? Highly doubt it.

(Generally accepted)

Consume 3,500 more calories than you burn, you gain 1 pound, burn 3,500 calories more than you consume, you lose a pound.

So ... in that period of time, do you think you consumed 7,000 more calories than you burned?

Yeah, didn't think so.

Nope, I had about 575 calories yesterday total. Good to know the logistics, I'll stop freaking out now.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
