Can I keep it? Please?

I've been sick this week.  Some sort of stomach bug.  I missed work part of the day Wednesday and all day Thursday.  I don't usually get stomach sick.  Have you ever seen the episode of Seinfeld where Jerry breaks his no-vomit streak after eating a black and white cookie?  Well believe it or not, my no-vomit streak had lasted from 1989 until Wednesday (not counting alcohol and Lap-band related vomiting).  Yes, that was a 22-year no-vomit streak.


So of course I had to get on the scale this morning.  After all that suffering, I deserve a reward, right?  I've lost 3 lbs. since Tuesday.  Can I keep it?  Please?

See, here's the deal.  The weight I saw this morning is my lowest low since surgery and it is a normal BMI.  I have been hovering about three pounds above a normal BMI for months.  I've always felt that since I was maintaining that number without really working at it, it was the right weight for my body.  I also figure I probably have at least a few pounds of extra, loose skin to factor into the equation. Now I'm sort of wishing I didn't get on the scale.  I'm sure I am dehydrated.  I know I am not going to eat a weight-gaining diet this week, but I probably won't get to keep the loss.

It was nice to see, though.

When I was sick, I lost 12 pounds. Not a fun way to lose it, but it stayed off. So I hope yours does too, you certainly earned it.

So sorry that you were under the weather! Glad your feeling better. Hope the loss sticks for you!

As with everyone else, I too hope the loss stays for you. I was glad to see you include the loose weight in your tally. I am sure that is a factor in your weight. However, and I really hope you take this to heart, YOU LOOK SO AWESOME!!!! It's been forever since I've seen you and S... we need to get together sometime soon. I miss you guys!
