What Do Stomach Cramps, Diarrhea, and Vomiting Have In Common? Weight Loss... DUH!

Feeling a little under the weather... could be a stomach bug coming on. If I play my cards right I could lose 5 lbs. with this one.

Eh, it is probably just that dinner of garlic bread I ate. That is the last time I eat the whole loaf-so help me Pepperidge Farms.

Here's hoping for the stomach flu-is it bad to think of weight loss when I am doubled over in pain?

Fingers crossed.

oooh, first commenter again! My family is currently going through an intestinal bug. I hear it is quick. Hopefully, you can have the same bug. LOL!!! I was thinking the exact same thing tonight when I ate some ice cream! I figured I'd eat it BEFORE I started with the bug so I could lose the weight! HAHA!

More power to you. Why is that I never seem to get the crash diet stomach bug? Guess I would just eat my way through it, anyway! Hope you are feeling better.

Yep, that bug I had back in December helped me lose 5 lbs.
And I was thinking that very thing when I was working it out at both ends...how much weight will I lose.
Hang in there and be sure to stay hydrated.
I really hope it was just the garlic bread.
Love,

Hope you feel better Mrs. Cleaver! I always think I will lose wt when I get sick... but then I never do and all the ickyness is a waste! Hope you have better luck though.

Yeah, that's what I'm always hoping, but it never happens. My body just goes into Starvation Mode and sucks every calorie out of the little I can eat.

I hope you're feeling better quickly. I won't mention that I'm in Ft. Lauderdale in a hotel room that's overlooking the beach, getting ready to go to cocktails and dinner at the yacht club.

Rita,
Have a drink for all of six-packers stuck in the Midwest and enjoy Ft. Lauderdale. I have fond memories of a trip there...we stayed at the Lago Mar...if I got the name correct. :)

You strangely remind me of Emily Blunt in The Devil Wears Prada -- "I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight..." I could watch that movie over and over. Oh wait, I have.

Feel better soon!!! (Perhaps a Six-Pack of Pepto??)

I always weigh myself immediately after a stomach bug. It may be bad, but it's not like I planned it, so I might as well find the silver lining, right?

ugh. we're just getting over it after a week and a half of playing, "who's going to wake up and puke in our bed tonight, honey?" I'm not sure which was worse, wanting to die while going through it, or the day after dehydration hangover without the benifit of getting trashed the night before. Sigh. I'm also four months preggers, so no weightloss to hope for, and man, I'm wiped out!!!
