I'm not working out and I'm not feeling good, but the weight's off, baby!
My goal is 50lbs for the year. Over halfway there.
Hate to... but all you've lost is water weight. As a high school wrestler that routinely cut up to 15 pounds over the course of two days by not eating, spitting, and generally being an anorexic mess, I can tell you that it all comes back in a matter of hours once you start to eat and drink like a normal human again. Unfortunately.
It would seem unlikely that it was all water, but the fact is that this kind of weight loss isn't typically permanent. You have to exercise, which is something I can't do right now because stairs wind me, and you have to eat correctly. I'm working on the diet part, and hopefully I'll get into the exercise phase sooner rather than later.
Hopefully you can kick the sickness sooner than later. I know how frustrating it is wanting to move about but not being able to do much because you get winded. I become much more active over the past year, however, at the beginning of the month I was seriously slowed when I came down with a pretty bad chest cold. I'm still having trouble with mucus in my lungs, especially when I'm working out. It blows.
