Best Diet Ever!?

I just recently had a bout with what I could say has to be the sickest case of stomach flu that I have ever had. It came out both ends, it kept me up all night, it was sad. But, I lost 7lbs.

You heard me right, 7lbs.

Get sick, vomit, lose weight. But, when I was hovering over my toilet I came the realization that I never want to feel that way in my life again, and that the weight I was losing wasn't worth the pain and suffering.

I also became afraid of food. I am right now feeling much better but am still afraid to eat. BRAT (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast) diet or not, I'm scared.

How long will this skinniness continue?

Probably until dinner.

I've often said I just need a good illness to kick start my weight loss. Oh well. I meant to say this earlier, but I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK!!!

Hey! I did that diet. I lost 4.4 lbs in one day.

...I gained 4 of it back though when I went back to non-vomitting diet.

I got a flu once and also lost 7 lbs! which is a big step when i only needed to lose like 35. not eating for two days and not keeping down water will do that. i gained 4 lbs back, but it was a kick-start for me and i was able to lose 10 lbs total by 2 weeks later. I guess eating nothing shrunk my stomach and I did not feel like overeating as much after that. Yay! (boo for puking tho)
