Watching the scale go up is gonna suuuuuuck

So I appear to be finishing up my super fun run with a stomach bug where I ate virtually nothing and crapped my brains out for 2.5 days. I lost over 6 pounds from dehydration. I've been able to get more fluids in today and am clearly rehydrating.

I'd been weighing myself just for "fun" and partly to keep an eye on dehydration. I always knew this wasn't real loss, but damnit, it's still gonna suck to "regain" those 6 pounds over the next day or so as I rehydrate!

HOWEVER... even before the dehydration, I'm less than 20 pounds (17, to be exact!) from my first goal of 210 pounds, which will put me in the lowest obesity class!

So really this is a true rant/rave lol.

And. It may not happen. I got gallstones when I was about 160lbs, sick as a dog. Lost 16lbs. Only put on 2 briefly, and that went real quick.

Then I got food poisoning when I was at 136lbs. Got down to 129. Had to work to get it back.

So - stick to your plan and it might, just might, stay mostly off. Cos dehydration, sure, but I bet your eating was affected too, right?

🤞🏼

Don't worry about it.

Definitely not worried, but is it too much to ask to keep my 6 pounds as a reward for all time I put in on the porcelain throne?! Lol

I lost something like 8lb with Montezuma's revenge in Nov, and it mostly stayed off. I certainly wouldn't advocate it as a weight loss plan, but it did kick-start my losses again in a serious way. Then again pretty much the only thing I WASN'T during that episode was dehydrated, my blood was 84% Gatorade by the end.

Either way, just make sure you're hydrated and healthy.

It probably won't come back, I was sick a few times and lost weight and when I was better and back to my normal routine the weight that I lost never came back
