Isn't it funny/weird how sometimes we'll take being sick if it means that we lose more weight? But, as you're alluding to, losing it for this reason usually means that you'll gain it back once back on your usual schedule. But my fingers are crossed for you. Let's hope that having the flu at least paid off somehow. :-)
Sweat Pea from Sucker Punch - "Who honors those we love with the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us, and at the same time sings that we'll never die? Who teaches us what's real, and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live, and what we'll die to defend? Who chains us, and who holds the key to set us free? It's you. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight!"
