Bad ways to lose weight.

I've been finding that I lose weight when I don't eat. Anything.

Not the best way to do so.

Came down with the flu on Friday. I check my weight every other morning, and I was at 281 that day.

Today I weighed 270.5, but I'm pretty sure it's mostly because I'm incredibly dehydrated.

Part of this is because everything I tried to eat made me queasy, and partly because the food I do have requires work to prepare and I was not in any condition to do so, but I ended up actually eating soups - tried making a standard serving amount of spaghetti (1/2 inch bundle) with an egg and a teaspoon each of butter and cream and it was still too rich, but given that it was the only thing other than two apples that I ate that day, I shouldn't be surprised that it left me a bit queasy. Finally yesterday I was well enough to stagger out into the world, went to Safeway and got a bunch of fruit-gel-cups, some antiviral Kleenex, a bunch of lemon-lime soda (hell no the real price of 7-up is not 1.89 for a two liter bottle, and the 'on sale' price of 1.49 is still not on sale, but at least they've started showing the real per-bottle price after multiple complaints that they were violating the unit-price labelling laws.) Oh yeah, and some no-sugar-added fruit juice bars. SO much relief on the throat from those.

Anyway. I wonder if this'll all come right back. Probably at least 5 pounds, given the degree of dehydration.

Yeah, I'm on small amounts of real food since Monday, and I'm sticking around 271, but I'm still fighting off the nasty. If I could feel confident that it was that stored caloric stuff, I'd be happy.

    I heard from a person I haven't talked with in a rather long time, and found this comment.

    Wow ow ow. That is ... so very earnestly foolish.

    Interestingly, the other day I learned of another good reason I left.
