Weighed in today down 1 pound to 153.8 pounds. This puts me 5.8 pounds away from not having to pay for meetings and 7.8 pounds away from my Weight Watchers goal.
I was sick the whole week (fever, aching, coughing) and mostly did nothing. I read in bed a lot, used the computer a little bit and hardly left the house. I am finally starting to feel better, but still not doing much. I did go to my meeting today as the fever is gone, but I’m still coughing a lot so not ready to exercise or do much.
Because of feeling so wretched my calorie burn for the week was super low. On the other hand, my calories eaten was also low. I don’t recommend that at all, but I was just not hungry. I do think that some of my weight loss since getting sicking isn’t “real” weight loss. Once I start eating a more normal diet, I think some water will return and I’ll probably gain back at least a pound or pound and a half.
Still, for now, I will take it and be glad that I didn’t let being sick keep me from eating the normal kinds of foods that I eat. It was tempting to just eat anything, but I made an effort to eat the healthier foods even when I wasn’t super hungry.
One interesting thing is that I periodically checked my blood sugar over the week and found that I was often higher than usual. I attribute a lot of that to my being so sedentary over this period of time.
Anyway, regardless of the reason, and though some of this will likely come back over the next week as I eat more typically, I lost 4.4 pounds in January.
