Naomi, Hope you feel better! Dont get too excited about the loss, you are probably dehydrated! Make sure you try to get as many liquids in as possible!! Hydration is one of the main things those of us who are sick forget! I'm majorly guilty!

Bless your heart! I would rather have a tooth pulled than have a tummy bug!

I have the flu too, but thank god the bad tummy part of it is over. I got a super sore throat and I was so excited at the prospect of losing my voice so I could get out of work (I'm a receptionist). Well here I am after spending a full day on the phones with NO VOICE WHATSOEVER. I'm talking nothing more than squeaks coming out of my voicebox and they still won't send me home!

I am sorry to hear that you are (were) ill with tummy flu. When this happens to me, I end up gaining weight when I start eating again. The old thing about my body thinking that I am in starvation and then when I eat I pack on the pounds. Hope that does not happen to you.

I'm all for pounds lost do to a temporary stomach flu. It's what you need to do sometimes to smile. There's always a bright side to things, plus if it's a 48 hour bug chances are you didn't lose any muscle.

After I had my ankle put back together with screw pins and nails I lost 30 pounds. Most people gain after ortho surgery, I was thrilled to have lost weight. Unitl I found out that I lost 30 pounds of muscle. Don't ask how long it took me to even start walking without crutches again.

Plus it's nice to open a thread that has nothing to do with everything else going on in our little world. :barf:

well after not eating for 72 hours I was down to 131/6 on Saturday morning and was feeling way better, that means I've been eating again ;) so this morning I was back up to 133.6 :( I so want to be at my goal for Christmas :(

Well, yesterday I ate some lasagna leftover from our holiday party. By noon I was so sick I had to go home. I expelled the lasagna orally (read tossed my cookies) and slepted most of the day. Must have been a staph bacteria growing in there. Bet I do not want any lasagna for a long time!
Today I feel better but my back is sore. I am going to try some eggs for breakfast.
