I know, right? You really want to know how much weight I lost this week being sick, puking my guts out, unable to eat anything one day and having only 500 calories yesterday. Well big drum roll, I lost... a pound. Yep that's right, one stinkin' pound! Down to 214. Now don't get me wrong, I don't advocate vomiting as a weight loss strategy. But IF you are super sick and IF you are puking your guts out from a germ that you can't help, you may as well enjoy the weight loss, right? Well, apparently not...
I managed to re-hydrate myself pretty well yesterday, got lots of water, plain tea and sips of Gatorade in along with chicken soup (skipped the noodles, they really did not appeal to me). I also ate a yogurt yesterday and let me tell you, it was the best tasting yogurt of my life. It wasn't anything super special... just a plain vanilla Brown Cow yogurt. But boy, after being so sick, that yogurt tasted like absolute heaven. Maybe not being able to eat reset my tastebuds or something.
Today I still feel fairly weak and icky. But I had another yogurt for breakfast and I have a can of peaches chilling in the fridge to eat with cottage cheese for lunch. I just can't stomach the thought of vegetables or meats or even eggs right now, so I am getting my protein in with low fat dairy. I'll supplement with some Medifast protein drinks... no chocolate shakes though, the thought turns my stomach. Something fruity will sit better, like an orange or cranberry mango drink.
I am tired of being sick, I am tired of being fat, I am tired of being tired. Something has got to change.
