sick and needing some advice



Recommended Posts

So I have managed to drop 62 lbs over the last 3 months, but I've been sick for the last 3 days with some for viral ordeal. My throat is killing me, my body aches all over, I have no energy, and I'm losing my voice now. With being sick I have been forcing myself to eat a d drink because I'm not really hungry at all. My weight is going up a couple oz each day. I'm assuming it's because I'm not exercising. Does anyone have any tips or tricks that may help me continuing to lose weight during the this process or help with getting over this so I can have the energy to exercise. I don't want to stall my weight loss and be lectured by my Dr and boyfriend. Any advise would be greatly appreciated

Personally, I wouldn't worry about losing weight while I was sick. If you're sick, you're sick & getting well has to take priority. Losing 62 lbs in 3 months is great! Cut yourself some slack & realize that gaining a few ounces (or even a couple of pounds) while sick is not the end of the world. When you're well again & able to function better, you'll get right back on track. Feel better!

I agree with southernsoul above, I don't think you should worry about weight loss while sick at all. Also, I bet you are actually losing weight, but due to being sick are holding on to Water weight. Your weight "going up a few ounces" every day is NOT real weight gain and you need to learn to not be affected emotionally by the daily fluctuations of your body.

I'm using warm salt Water rinses and sugar free throat lozenges. Seems like this cold doesn't wanna let go so gonna try some Tylenol cold and flu today to see if that helps. Feel a little worse each morning.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
